Loopholes You Can Exploit to Cheat the System

– [Narrator] We’ve all heard stories about that brilliant
person who found a loophole and got a big payday. If you wish it were you, pay attention to these stories
about exploitable loopholes. If you’ve ever wanted to eat for free in a first-class restaurant for a year or own a new golf cart free of charge, pay attention to these 10 loopholes you can exploit to cheat the system. – Amazing! – [Narrator] Number 10. Give him credit for that one. If you’ve ever signed
up for a credit card, only to find out your
variable interest rate went up or the no interest for six
months deal didn’t apply, you probably understand the frustration that led Dmitry Agarkov to pull a fast one on a company called Tinkoff Credit. First, he took the offer
they sent him and read it. He decided the terms were unfair, so we scanned it into his computer and changed some of them, including giving himself
a 0% interest rate, no credit limit and no fees. Also, he added a $100,000 fine if the company tried to cancel his card. Then he sent the whole
thing back to Tinkoff Credit where it was automatically signed without anyone reading the terms they assumed were the ones they sent out. When they did notice,
they tried to back out but a judge ruled the contract was binding since the credit company signed it. No idea of this will work
with other creditors, but we’ll give you credit for trying. Number nine, keep getting
those student discounts. After paying for college for four years, which for some might include
paying back student loans for 40 years, you probably
need all the help you can get. Many people have reported using their non-expiring student IDs to continue getting discounts
for years after graduation. If your school allows you
to keep the email address they gave you that ends in .edu, you can continue to use that for discounts on some types of software. As for your ID, if anyone
looks at it too hard just shrug and say you
are going through a phase in freshman year. Nobody looks the same two years
in a row in college anyway. Number eight, a first-class solution. The airport is a great
place to game the system. For example, this
enterprising boy band member actually managed to avoid a bag fee by wearing every item of clothing
that had been in his bag. Hey, he followed the the
rules of the airline. They apparently think clothes
weigh less on the human than in a bag. On another note, many people
have flown first class without even having a first-class ticket. There are a number of
tricks to achieve this, but chances are that if the front business and first-class seats aren’t taken and operational upgrades occur, simply asking politely could
help you snag a better seat as flight attendants have some discretion over who gets the seat. Even though computers
generally allocate upgrades according to flyer miles. But flying first class has
benefits beyond roomier seats and better snacks, even off the plane. Many airlines offer free
meals in the VIP lounge with a first-class ticket and some people have
managed to game the system and eat free for a number of years. One famous travel hacker, Justin Ross Lee, frequently simply buys
refundable first-class tickets. Then chills in the VIP lounge
at international airports and eats for free. Before his flight lifts off, he cancels and rescheduled his flight, which he repeats again
and again and again. One man in China did a similar thing and the year went by
before the airline noticed that he had rebooked a single
ticket more than 300 times and never actually went anywhere. Airline officials admitted there was technically no rule against it, but they still confronted him and convinced him to
turn in his meal ticket which he did for a full refund. Is that what you call a gravy plane? Number seven, price glitches. Don’t fly off just yet, there’s another loophole
to game the airlines and other businesses that
suffer price glitches. Websites like SecretFlying
and Airfare Watchdog monitor airlines for price errors, which can result from
typos like a $15,000 fare going down to 1500 because
someone forgot a zero. Signing up for the sites allows you to get text or email alerts as soon as an unnaturally
low price is found. Airlines aren’t the only companies that have glitches either. As an unemployed shop clerk in the UK, Ashleigh Swan discovered a few years ago. She now makes a living off her website ashleighmoneysaver.co.uk where she also emails or text subscribers with pricing glitches on
everything from toys to boots. She also advises her followers
about doubling up on deals and other handy loopholes to save money. Number six, open a strip club in Idaho. In Idaho, strip clubs are illegal due to puritanical public nudity laws but having nude people on
display for art purposes is not. So one clever entrepreneur
opened a strip club but handed out sketchpad to customers and called the nude dances art classes. To be fair, some of his patrons actually did sketch the ladies. And a few of those sketches
have made it onto the walls. However the naked truth,
is that for most customers the sketchpad is probably just
a prop to keep things legal. Number five, hacking vending
machines and slot machines. So many people have
cheated vending machines by putting their dollar
in with tape on one end so they could pull it back out that many of the newer machines
have video surveillance or other security systems
to avoid this sort of thing. A variation on this trick is
also common with slot machines. Casinos have lost money to
people putting in fake coins, using strings to pull their coin back out and even using a light to blind the sensor that tells the machine when
to stop spitting out money. These cheese aren’t all low-tech either. A programmer named Carmichael was hired to program slot machines and built in his own special
code to make machine payout. He got away with it for years until one of his accomplices was caught. Other high-tech methods
include taking advantage of glitchy machines that respond to certain sequences of code or switching out the computer
chips in the machines and using a phony bill validator to make the machine think
money had been inserted. Casinos are on the lookout
for this sort of behavior and they now know what to look for. So it’s best not to try out these tricks. Number four, buying money to make money. They say you have to
spend money to make money, but for one man, all he
had to do was buy money to make money. After the one dollar coins came out, the US government was selling
them for a dollar a piece with free shipping. He bought some with a cashback credit card and deposited the coins
when he received them actually making money on the deal. Meanwhile, one time offers
on anything other than money are easy to exploit. Some clever people use multiple emails to sign up for multiple accounts and get multiple coupons,
free items et cetera. This is common with struggling students, proving you really can learn
a useful skill in college. Number three, get a
$330,000 house for $16. Mortgages are a hassle, especially the part where you have to keep
paying them every month. Fortunately, many states including Texas have an adverse possession law. This says if the house was foreclosed, whereby the original owner
abandoned the mortgage, and the mortgage company closed shop, any person living or squatting
there has negotiation rights. All the squatter has to do
is pay $16 to file paperwork claiming rights to the property. A man named Kenneth Robinson
successfully did this in Flower Mound, Texas in 2011. Keep in mind that there
are a lot of stipulations to this law. And Robinson spent some
time researching it and finding the ideal house. If the original owner had
paid off the mortgage, he could’ve been evicted. However, if the owner doesn’t step forward and you managed to
openly live in your house for a full three years, in other states it’s often seven years, you can claim ownership of the property. Number two, free golf cart. Tax credits for electric cars are nice but they’re usually not big enough for you to essentially get a free car. But you can get a free golf cart providing you make it street
legal by adding turn signals, mirrors and seat belts. This is due to a loophole in the tax law that bases the tax rebate on the length of time
the vehicle’s battery pulled the charge. Golf carts apparently
have long-lived batteries. So a new street legal golf
cart is basically free after the credit. This is probably something some politician dreamed up on the golf
course, but who’s complaining. Number one, $50 of free
coffee at Starbucks. A few years ago, coffee enthusiasts were
impressed by a viral video produced by Beau Chivases. The coffee enthusiast wanted to see if he could order the
most expensive drink ever and manage to get a 47.30 espresso by basically adding an extra
shot of well everything. Not to be outdone, a Starbucks
loyalty member named Andrew, decide to top this by getting more than $50 worth of coffee free. This was made possible because
Starbucks loyalty program gives you your 12th
cup of coffee for free. And customers are allowed to
bring in their own containers. Andrew brought a 128
ounce clear glass vase and ordered a 90-shot espresso, walking away with a $54.75 free drink which he drank over the
course of the next five days. Hey, you have more time for drinking when you’re not wasting
time on sleep, right? Anyway Starbucks released a statement saying they discourage this kind of thing, but they haven’t actually stated it goes against their rules. What crazy item would you
use as a drinking container for free coffee? And do you know of any other loopholes that can be easily exploited? If you like this video, please

    Anyone know of any other loophole we could've included?

  2. ICUMUTHA Don'tTRYIT says:

    This stinks it stinks I hate it I wish you died and you need to stop making videos that's nasty disrespectful for kids I'm calling cops don't take off all the kids stuff

  3. The Christian Cowboy says:

    How did the guy make money by buying $1 coins and depositing them in the bank when the face value is still $1?

  4. Artyom Arty says:

    1) If you travel and you want to sleep/rest/shower at campground sites, then dont come until after like 11 pm. This way the staff will say "pay tomorrow". But then leave the next day before 7 am before staff wakes up and you wont have to pay (doesnt always work but usually does)

    2) If you drive someone else's car, you never actually need to have auto insurance if you get stopped. Nor does the owner of the car need to have it. Simply tell the officer "yes I have auto insurance but its at home". The officer will never charge you for driving without insurance if you drive someone else's car because there is a good chance that the owner does have insurance. Cops dont treat insurance the same way as registration. You just have to lie a bit

    3) Wal mart has pretty great return policy. You can get like 10 tents, a few Go-Pro's, some travel equipment, and then return it all after you're done with your vacation.

    4) We all know that ink cartridges are expensive AF. However, some printers come with ink. What you can do is buy a printer, use up all the ink, and then return the printer for another one

    5) When applying to college or financial aid, you can say you're black/hispanic or some other privileged minority. Depending on college, being transgendered also helps. This significantly increases your chances. If caught in the lie, simply say that "i identify as X"

    I once won a trip for 2 to Amsterdam and to activate the holiday I had to enter a code into their website and after the holiday I thought I’d try the code again and it only let me book another holiday (the holidays were a long weekend in Amsterdam) and I ended up having 5 free trips to Amsterdam from 1 win.

    How to get a free golf kart

  17. BlackCat says:

    I will do the same

  18. The Wanderlust Duo says:

    I got a corsair gaming headset on eBay but they didn't work. Talk with the seller and he sent a 2nd pair, didn't work either. I got refunded and he told me that he didn't want the headphones back. So I called corsair told them that I bought the headphones in a local shop and they didn't work. They told me to sent the headphones to them so I did. A week later they sent me 2 new pairs of the latest generation of the gaming headset since the one I sent was an older version.
    So I got about 200$ for free =p

  19. Tanner Emmers says:

    if your telling us these things, the companies must know as well. I'm suprised the credit card one worked, I thought they would say our policy has no such agreements, the person who signed it wasn't doing there job.

  20. David Koch says:

    People who do these things cause prices to go up, just like thieves do, for the rest of us.

  29. jdoggg1119 says:

    Actually, the person hired to program the slot machines was not Tommy Carmichael, his name was Ron Harris. Harris worked for the Nevada Gaming Control Board, while Carmichael was a tv repair man, who created the light wand to fool the optical sensor in the slot machines.


    Use a 5 gallon bucket as a cup for coffee

    Sometimes our McDonald's drive thru gets orders mixed up. I ordered and paid for a small meal, but when I got to the food window I was handed two large bags of food and several drinks. I said thank you and drove off with it all.

  42. Raven Storm says:

    I'm sorry but what? Strip clubs are not illegal in Idaho. I live less than 2 miles from one. I also live one block from an Adam and Eve store and in my town alone there are 2 karnations stores. The last two may be toy stores but you get the point. I find this even more interesting considering where I live has a population of about 56,000. Most of which are kids because Mormons breed like rabbits. I mean seriously, 4-6 or more kids is the norm here. If you only have 3 or even none not only do you get treated differently but you don't qualify for most help if you fall on hard times. "Oh, you broke your leg and can't work, with seven feet of snow outside, and can't afford to run the heater, but you don't have kids? Sorry but we can't help you. " I kid you not, this actually happened. Though the real conversation was more "how many children are in the home?" " None" click. I mean seriously. How rude do you have to be just because I'm not a slut?

    What on earth is expresso

  45. anonymous says:

    Another one is when the difference between Canadian money and American money is higher than 4% but the casino offers you American or Canadian money the same at par it take your American money You transfer it to say Canadian so if you started out with $1000 American money and you’re making $40 when you convert it to Canadian then you via thousand 40 in poker chips and then when you cash them in you tell them you want American you just made 1040 American now you go back to the currency exchange and use your 1040 American to get 1080 Canadian actually a little bit more and repeat if you do this with $5000 you’re gonna make a little over $200 each time you go back-and-forth if you do this five times in a day you make a little bit over $1000 to run from the casino to theCurrency exchange is a little bit of work but to make $1000 for the day isn’t bad

    Most coupons aren't worth using when you can just buy generic brand items for far less. Coupons on generic items are worth it though.

  63. christdragon says:

    I once discovered a price discrepancy at a local mom and pop toy store. As the prices were a little higher at another location. So I negotiated to buy the higher priced item at the lower price, and then returned it a few days later at the full retail price, pocketing the difference. Thanks.

    That chinese depiction was racist as heck what reason do you have for including it

  69. ASARADEL says:

    amazon gets return items and anything they re-shelf with a single dent can be sold for pennies compared to what it originally cost.
    a gta 1060 sold for 13 dollars last year, and some lucky redditor was tipped off and bought over 100 returned pascal gpus for bitcoin farming. for under 3,000 dollars…

  70. Duck Broz says:

    I would use my house for the coffee

  71. DerUntote 123 says:

    For 3. You can also act as a homeles man, be part of a mr beast vid. and get a house

  72. SimplTon3s says:

    Lol. Casinos don't even use cash anymore, they use a card that your money gets loaded on to

  73. Dan Jakeway says:

    I hear your cry Africa. You need to get a compass and straightedge to study geometry yourselves to inquire on truth. Legal loopholes aren't for what you think they're for. When you cheat, you cheat yourself and rob yourself of true independence past, present, and future.

  74. Patte Laury says:

    #3 is called "adverse possession". Move your fence a foot or two, start parking on that strip of grass; it needs to be done in an "open & notorious fashion".
    The best use of this would be if you bought one side of a duplex & the other side was abandoned. There is that very situation down the street. A young couple bought 1 half. Other half was empty at least 20 years. The have openly & notoriously moved stuff in, replaced the roof & some windows, landscaping etc. It looks much nicer now. True, its a gamble, but just another few years & they'll have both sides & another property back on the tax roll.

    redo your student ID senior year so you have an extra 3 years of benefits

    Fuck they patch it in the 1.1.4 update

  77. markohaaj says:

    breaking something that shouldn’t break, and then buying the same one brand new, then returning the old one in the new box. Kinda fucked up, but works every time, most definitely illegal

  78. markohaaj says:

    had a prepaid gift card that I could only buy stuff online with, so I setup an ebay listing for the amount of money on the card, and sold it to myself, and transferred it to my bank, lost $1 in fees but was worth it

  79. Jonathan Hughes says:

    People: God invented free. Doesn't anyone know of every tree you may freely eat? I am amazed that people use money.

  80. AnimeKing #1999 says:

    Id use the same thing

  81. West Loje says:

    No one pay student loans for 40 years because if they are 50,000$ and a small house cost 250,000$ that means you would pay of your house in 220 years

  82. The rise of the Freg says:

    Wow, sure is fun misplacing decimal points!

  83. Robo Donut says:

    1:21 nice joke

    One thing. No "x" in espresso .

  89. Heelix Ranier says:

    For the example given about discounts on software for students, be careful as companies like MIcrosoft will embed the product key code in the documents you create. Often times, the versions of MS software that MIcrosoft gives out or sells at a discount to students are educational version (fully functional versions, but labelled for educational use). So if someone were to dig into the metadata of the document, they may discover the document was created with an educational copy. For student use (and probably home use) this is probably OK, although home use might be questionable. But for business use it's not technically legal as the software was not licensed for business use. Some software also expires after 2-4 years (Whereas their regular subscription-based software or retail box software doesn't) if you purchase under an educational discount too.

  90. Heelix Ranier says:

    Another one I found is at some casino's if you're playing slots (or other games, but slots are the cheapest way to exploit this), they'll give you basic drinks while you play. Go play a few penny slots or nickel slots and you can drink literally for next to nothing. Many casinos have stopped doing this, but some still do for slot machine players.

  91. Heelix Ranier says:

    #5 as mentioned before is illegal. You never want to do that. Just realize that casinos are designed to make money (unless of course, the one you're in was part owned by Donald Trump I guess). Go read up what happens to people who get caught. It's not pretty. Not worth it. I don't go to casnios that much anymore, but I always went in with $100 or $200 and assumed I'd lose it all anyway. If I won some games, great, I walked out with some extra cash, but never go into a casino thinking you're going to win (either by cheating or playing fair). Go there, have fun, and know when to quit, and know that 99% of the time, you're going to lose money.

  92. Antonio Alves says:

    One day I went to subway and asked for the usual, sandwich and soda. When I drank all I immediately went to refill it. After finishing, the attendant said refill wasn't allowed anymore, too bad I didn't know. I swear I didn't!

  93. cody moody says:

    If you go out to Vegas on your birthday you can walk into every bar and get a free drink

  97. tj says:

    My student is has no picture and no expiration date lol. Never going to give that up. My uni email as well will always remain active as long as I keep using it

  98. Himiko Ichikawa says:

    It's kind of a loophole to get paid more. On certain clock in systems if u decide to clock in before or clock out after ur shift has ended some companies pay u for the exact minutes u do extra meaning u have a bit of extra change or dollars depending on how it's done . I arrive to my job half an HR early normally n I clock in I get paid for it other companies are strict with their time clocks but if u have one that is done on ur PC at work give it a shot only works if u get paid hourly however. So far I have worked for 2 companies and has worked
