  • Missed Arbitrage Opportunity

    Posted by Jonathan on July 4th, 2010 (All posts by )

    I just went to a play. They were selling peanut M&Ms for $2 at the concession table in the theater lobby. But then it turned out you could get the same M&Ms for a buck from the vending machines near the washroom. I could have cleaned up.

      The daughter’s high school has banned bake sales starting in the fall. (Nutritional reasons.) She is already researching the best source in town for cookies to sell out of her locker.

      The extra buck was for your pleasure of interacting with the cashier.
