If you ask any Neopets Premium member they will tell you the reason they became a member is the Super Shop Wizard or SSW for short. A snipe is an under priced item in a users shop that you can resell for a profit. Players that use the SSW instead of the regular shop wizard have a better chance of finding snipes quicker. The Premium Super Shop Wizard finds the cheapest price on the very first search. But what do you snipe for on the Super Shop Wizard?
The Premium Super Shop Wizard cannot search for paint brushes, Transmogrification potions, secret laboratory maps, or Nerkmids. Everything else is fair game in the world of sniping.
Premium Super Shop Wizard sniping: Unbuyables
This is the most lucrative and exciting type of sniping. I have made millions on a single Super Shop Wizard snipe. The best way to snipe an unbuyable with SSW is to create a list of items you check on everyday.
Daily freebies are a great place to start your list. Items like “Kings Lens”, “Flask of Rainbow Water”, “Mysterious Swirly Potion”, “Animated Meowclops Statue”, “Coltzans Sceptre” and any color “Job Coupons” are a good place to start.
Abandoned Attic restockers often place unbuyables in their shops. Find a current list to snipe from or just search for high end petpets, books and foods that could be mispriced. I have sniped two unbuyable petpets at the same time using Premium Super Shop Wizard and an Abandoned Attic item list.
Scratchcards are often a good thing to snipe using the Premium Super Shop Wizard. Many newbie players will sell the unbuyable cards and prizes in their shops thinking them junk. Be on the lookout for “Rotting Riches Scratchcard”, “Pustravaganza Scratchcard”, “Sandtravaganza Scratchcard”, and “Icetravaganza Scratchcard”. The unbuyable prizes to search for include “Cheops Shield”, “Hand Painted Scarab Plushie”, and “Orbulon”.
Retired items are often put in user shops by older players just coming back to the site after a hiatus. The often don’t have access to the Premium Super Shop Wizard to price their shop. Petpets such as “Bat Boy”, “Cyodrake”, “Gremble”, and “Meowclops” in various colors are highly snipe-able. Stamps, books, foods are also great to look for in shops.
Many players receive code items from buying various real life products. Quite often they will toss them in their shop for a paltry amount. Some of these codes items are worth millions of Neopoints! “Doglefox Colouring Book” is a great buyable find when its real worth is forty million Neopoints. Be on the lookout for “Purple Chia Book” a code item from Limited Too merchandise. I nearly lost it when I found a “Grey Nova” for five-hundred Neopoints on the Premium Super Shop Wizard when its true value is 1.5 million Neopoints!
Premium Super Shop Wizard sniping: Buyables
Sniping for buyables on the Super Shop Wizard is a consistent income of Neopoint profits. There are so many items on Neopets that are regularly priced incorrectly and can provide a constant source of income for snipers.
Bagatelle prizes such as “Gummy Apple Mootix” and “Bagatelle Jigsaw Puzzle” are found for much cheaper then they are worth quite often on the Premium Super Shop Wizard. It is also good to snipe for concert swag, some pieces like “Gruundo Plushie” and “Twisted Roses Shirt” are often found for just a few Neopoints. Prizes from the Lunar Temple daily such as “Moon Orb”, “”Moondial” and “Lunar Astrolabe” are pretty to look at and are worth reselling.
There are some great cracker prizes that are often on my Premium Super Shop Wizard snipe list. “How to draw flip book”, “Christmas Tree Glasses”, and “Christmas Tree Gems” look cheap to newbies and are often priced low. As a bonus, Christmas items inflate around the holidays.
Omelettes are given out as a daily freebie but did you know some are worth eighty thousand Neopoints? Players will often throw omelettes in their shops for one Neopoint each. When using the Premium Super Shop Wizard watch out for “Ugga Melon Omelette”, “Little Fishy Omelette”, “Hot Tyrannian Omelette” and “”Honey Blossom Omelette.”
Gross food is a great way to make a decent income sniping with the Premium Super Shop Wizard. Players often underestimate the prices of gross food because they don’t look pretty. Some are worth a pretty Neopoint such as “Ground Beef Smores”, “Swill Pudding”, “Snailcorn Parfait” and “Ants on Ants”.
The best way to make consistent profits sniping with the Premium Super Shop Wizard is looking for the same items everyday. Eventually when it becomes snipe-able you will be there to snatch up the deal.
