Testimonials and Success Stories

This book has given me the knowledge and confidence to plan and embark on an RA adventure of my own. I was previously very wary of where to even start with a sourcing road trip, I now feel well-equipped with the very best information and step-by-step planning that was laid out in this book. Road Trip Arbitrage is full of so many great tips, tricks and information from a seasoned FBA-er. There’s no better way to learn something new than from someone who’s been there and done that. I’m so inspired by this great read!

Sierra Cannon

Road Trip Arbitrage is all about one of my favorite ways to source! I love sourcing my way from Vegas to San Diego in the summer. It is always fun for me to see if I can make a nice profit from the trip while enjoying the beach. Even though this method was not new to me, I could not wait to read this new guide. Rebecca and Stephen always introduce me to new strategies that I don’t have in place for my FBA business, and they always help me improve on what I already have in place or don’t have in place.  For instance, I don’t use an app to optimize my route, but you can bet the one they suggested will be added to my road trip arbitrage toolbox now. You are going to love having this guide in your FBA arsenal. Oh, Darlings Let’s Be Road Tripping Arbitragers and Get Our Wanderlust On!

Eleanor Prior

Road Trip Arbitrage is a very thorough course, starting from why you should add road trip arbitrage to your Amazon strategy all the way to the supplies you need, proper bookkeeping, and keeping the road trip fun. This course is very well done and gives you a lot to think about and contemplate. From giving the reader ideas on where to source to the types of items to source, Road Trip Arbitrage really covers the important topics of researching and planning your trip to make the most of your time and money. The course even helps you know if you should ship your items to Amazon from the road, send your inventory to a prep center, or hold on to them to prep and process when you get back home. I was very impressed by how well the topic was covered. It’s a fun and easy read with all you need to know to plan and execute a successful arbitrage road trip. Whether you’re going on a road trip soon, or just want to explore the possibility and see what is involved and how to get prepared, Road Trip Arbitrage is the source of all you need to know. Another great resource from Stephen & Rebecca Smotherman.

Road Trip Arbitrage is a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to take their RA game to the next level. It is so true that we get into a rut sourcing from the same stores in the same local area and expanding your search radius is a great way to build your stock of profitable inventory. The detailed information about what you need to prep product while on the road was especially helpful for me, but really, the whole book is packed with valuable tips and strategies. Now that the weather is finally nice here in PA I will definitely be using this information to plan my next road trip!

Jo Ann Zimmerman

Road Trip Arbitrage is a step-by-step course on how to grow your Amazon business in a new, fun and family friendly way. The book will teach you the basics, give you lists and charts to help you succeed and also give you some advanced strategies as you grow in this sourcing area. I love that Stephen and Rebecca write together because you get a real sense of family and working together for a common goal. Their hints and tips are worth at least 3 times the cost of this book.

Kat Simpson

The Reseller’s Guide to Road Trip Arbitrage brings to life strategies that can help everyone. Overall I thought the book was a really good read. It comes from a place of genuine care to share helpful knowledge to increase the profitability to sellers both new or advanced.
