buy stuff on clearance.
Back when Academy started their online shopping site, they were putting almost everything at clearance prices. I'm talking Nike tights, compression shorts, shorts...everything was from $0.88 to $2.88. I bought everything in sight, nearly their entire inventory and proceeded to flip most of them on eBay, averaging a sell price of around $19.99.
My biggest score from Academy was some Mueller Knee Braces which were on clearance for $0.88 a piece. This must have been a pricing error because everywhere else that I saw still had it priced at around $32.99.
So, I sold each one (around 15-20 or so) for at least $29.99 with $3 shipping.
I'd say I made out pretty well on those items and they paid for some LSU tickets that I wanted.
