You already know I work ahead of time to make the job easier for the people who edit my articles.
Usually I write the article you read on Friday the day before. And I write the one you read on Monday, the previous Friday.
But this week is very different. It’s Thanksgiving in the U.S. and people like to have the day and the day after off work over here.
We feel like that’s fair. So we close our offices and let our staff enjoy a few days with family…
But the show must go on and this isn’t called Wealth Whenever It Suits Us. So we editors are writing everything extra early so everyone else can take a break.
That makes their lives easier, but it kind of makes ours a little more difficult…
That Escalated Quickly
You know better than most that the stock market changes a lot from hour to hour, let alone day to day. So it’s pretty tough to write something on a Monday, for example, that’s still valuable on a Friday.
In that stretch of time, Jim Cramer went from telling everyone to buy Bear Stearns to being pretty embarrassed as Bear Stearns collapsed.
A lot can happen.
But here we are and the offices are closed, so I had to figure out something that would still be worth your time to read that I could write nearly a week before you read it.
And I think I’ve got it…
A few years ago, I wrote a book all about making more money. It’s called Endless Income.
It’s packed with tips and tricks for keeping the money you have, making more income, and even getting paid to do what you love.
So today I’m going to share a few of those tips that relate to the Black Friday craze AND give you the opportunity to snag your own copy 100% free of charge.
How to Claim $4,920 From Crazed Shoppers
As you’re reading this, millions of shoppers will be braving the cold, the crowds, and COVID-19 variants to trample each other in the true spirit of Christmas.
And stores are going to make billions of dollars in sales. A recent year saw 137 million people show up to spend an average of over $1,000 each.
And in 2018, shoppers in the U.S. spent over $117 billion on Black Friday alone. Wouldn’t it be amazing to get a piece of that?
Well, you can, and this “one-step” wealth trick will spit out SERIOUS cash every November.
Despite grim forecasts for brick-and-mortar retailers for years, mall real estate has remained one of the most profitable investments.
As a group, mall REITs pay a much higher dividend than any other category of REIT and are far more common than you might think.
In fact, the U.S. still has more retail square footage than any other country in the world, with the majority of malls across the U.S. being owned by these REITs.
And the more highly productive of the bunch are finding success in redeveloping vacated department store space into higher-value mixed uses, including multifamily homes and experience-based retailers.
Three of the top performers are Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG), Tanger Factory Outlets (NYSE: SKT), and Macerich Company (NYSE: MAC).
It might be a little late to cash in on the Black Friday shopping this year, but if you get your investment started now, you’ll have plenty of time to catch the next round of holiday shopping madness and cash in on everyone else cashing out.
How to Get Paid When People Shop at Costco
If you’re like me and millions of other Americans, you’ve got a club store membership — BJ’s, Sam’s Club, Costco, you name it.
We love our bulk buying here in the States and we spend a whopping $40 million a day at stores that fill the need for a three-gallon jug of cooking oil. But did you know you can get a cut of those transactions?
Sure, you can buy Costco stock and get a paltry dividend payment, but the real profits are all about the real estate.
Companies like Costco operate hundreds of stores across the country but own very few buildings and real estate.
It’s one of the companies that those REITs I mentioned before rent space to, and you can get a piece of the Costco action by investing in its corporate landlord.

Over 700 of Costco’s stores are owned by other companies and leased back to the retailer, with the company Kimco Realty (NYSE: KIM) historically paying the highest yield.
However, you can take it one step further and actually become a Costco landlord yourself. You can buy a Costco building that’s already being leased to the company.
You just need to send an email to email@example.com and they’ll send you a list of properties you can buy.
I’m guessing most of you will be like me and opt for the REIT.
But if you can afford a whole Costco and want to give it a shot, more power to you. And congratulations for already having a solid bankroll!
Discount Shopping Makes a Comeback
A lot of people wanted to paint Walmart as a victim of Amazon’s rise to fame, but Walmart isn’t going anywhere.
And as prices rise and inflation keeps raging, people are getting a little more value-conscious. You could see it in Walmart’s most recent earnings release. More people are shopping there than ever before.
And the numbers are growing. So what if you could get a piece of that sales growth? Well, again, thanks to REITs, you can…
You see, Walmart rents nearly every store in the nation of Canada from just one company.
And that company, SmartCentres REIT (TSX: SRU-UN.TO), pays shareholders a hefty income for helping maintain its status as Walmart’s landlord in Canada.
But Walmart isn’t the only company that pays to be in SmartCentres’ properties. The REIT also calls the likes of Lowe’s, Target, Best Buy, Staples, and many others tenants in its nearly fully leased portfolio.
At over 100 locations, though, Walmart is SmartCentres REIT’s largest tenant, which is why I’ve dubbed this strategy “the Wal-01(k).”
The dividend is mostly funded by Walmart rent payments and is so reliable that it’s like a retirement savings account.
There you have it. I wrote that several days ago and it’s still valuable. I’m pretty proud of myself. If I weren’t in a turkey-induced coma, I’d pat myself on the back.
If you’re not out there braving the crowds this Black Friday, I suggest you take a little time and do some Black Friday shopping in the stock market instead.
And if you’d like to get access to all the income-producing, tax-avoiding, retirement-funding tips and tricks in my book, you can snag your FREE copy after watching this short presentation.
In the spirit of Black Friday, you’ll also get a discounted offer to join my investing community and get access to all my research and recommendations for years to come.
And I’ll be back on Monday with more ways for you to add extra income during this expensive season.
