The rules are the rules, and there is no way of getting around them, right? Well, not necessarily.
Whether we're talking about the law or just simple product promotions, if there's a flaw within a system, it's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to capitalize on it.
So when Redditor Rokzo made a post on the platform, asking other users "What is the best loophole you have ever heard of?", they flooded it with all sorts of genius exploits. Here are some of the most memorable ones.
#1I used to work in a call center doing tech support for a dial-up ISP. The 10 hour plan was $9.99 and then there were various tiers including an unlimited plan for $50 or something like that.
I ended up moving to a different city and called up the call center to set up internet and I asked for the 10 hour plan. The guy (who didn't know I used to work there) tried to talk me into a bigger plan, but I stuck with the 10 hour plan.
Why? Because the company had no system for monitoring usage. You could use as much data as you wanted and it was all the same to them. There was no tracking system in place.

#2My brother once yelled "last one to jump in the pool is gay," and then jumped into the pool. However, I figured out that if I did not jump in then technically he would be the last one in the pool, and he is still gay to this day.

#3Torvill and Dean’s bolero at the 1984 Winter Olympics lasted 4 minutes and 18 seconds, but Olympic rules state that performances can’t be longer than 4 minutes.
However, the timer doesn’t begin until the skates touch the ice, so they did the first 20ish seconds of their performance on their knees.

#4Guy from Russia, if I remember right, scanned a credit card agreement offer he recieved, changed all the terms to be in his favor and sent it back, they let him use the card but ended up taking him to court. He won because they didn't read their terms and conditions that he had altered!!!

#5When I was in college, a parking sticker to park your car on campus was something like $250 a semester.
Senior year, we were sick of this, so I bought one, stuck it on my car, (it was front facing and stuck to the inside of your window facing out) and then we took a high resolution photo of it. We edited the photo on a laptop and sent it to a sticker making company. They printed a sheet of those for like 8 bucks. We got a couple pages of stickers and gave them out to our trusted friends.
As long as no one parked illegally or next to each other on campus, there was no reason parking police would notice we had the same parking number. Never got caught and saved a ton of money because we split the price of the original sticker.
10/10 would do it again. But you best believe I came out of that place with 45k in student loans, but that’s a separate issue.

#6There was once a big uproar at some sporting event where the venue had an exclusive deal with Aquafina or Dasani, and they HAD to sell only that water. Any vendor on premise was forbidden from selling any other bottled water.
So the vendors started doing this: They posted signs saying, "Single peanut for sale, $1, free water bottle included with every peanut purchase." Genius.

#7Got back stage to Guns and Roses by photocopying a pic of their album and printed "access all areas", put it through a laminator with a tag and walked right in, did the same for Soundgarden ,got through to the stage area, past 2 security points but got caught, lol, the guys were in shock with the boldness.

#8In West Virginia there was a law that waived taxes for automobile title transfers between parents and children. A friend wanted to buy a car from his uncle. So the uncle sold the car to his father who then sold it to his other son who sold it to his own son, my friend. Three transactions. Zero taxes.

#9There was a promotion a bunch of years back where Hoover included a plane ticket to select destinations around the world (from Europe) with any purchase of one of their products over $100. People could buy a vacuum that was like $109 and get a $600 plane ticket for it. Hoover ended up having to have people work crazy overtime to fulfill the demand for the cheapest model, and eventually they stopped honoring the promotion, which caused the people who hadn’t collected on it yet to sue them.
The company made 30 million from the promotion and lost 50 million in plane tickets and legal fees

#10The promotion at subway were you would get a free 6 inch sub if you bought a 25$ gift card. Then you buy another gift card with your 25$ gift card and get an other sub. You could do that to infinity the year after they changed it so you cant buy gift cards with gift cards

#11A man in China purchased a first-class plane ticket — and used it to eat a year’s worth of free meals at the VIP lounge at Xi’an International Airport. The frequent diner purchased a first-class, fully refundable ticket aboard Eastern China Airline. He used the ticket to gain access to the airport’s VIP lounge, where high-rolling travelers dine for free, according to a report last week in the Chinese-language newspaper Kwong Wah Yit Poh in Malaysia. The man re-booked his first-class ticket over and over again and kept the gravy train rolling. Eastern China Airlines officials only recently figured out the man’s scheme after noticing his single ticket being re-booked 300 times over one year, according to the newspaper report. Airline officials admitted there was nothing they could do to stop the frequent diner.
A spokeswoman for the carrier called the man’s free-meal scheme a “rare act.” Still, Eastern China Airlines officials confronted him, and the human meal ticket stopped chowing down. The freeloader ended up cashing in his fully refundable ticket and getting back all his money.

#12Some McDonalds have a 4 piece nugget on the dollar menu. It's often cheaper to buy 3 of those (12 nuggets and three sauces) and a fry separately than it is to buy the 10 piece meal.

#13Little community center/arcade where I used to live as a kid had an air hockey table in the back room. Somebody figured out that if you jimmy the coin slot in just the right way, you could get an extra 3-4 games out of one quarter until the thing was fully pressed in and you'd have to put in a new one. None of us had much money, so this was a lifesaver. The employees didn't really care because what money we did have was typically spent at the snack bar, so they made money off us anyway.
I kind of miss that place. They always had fresh watermelon for free for kids who had absolutely no money so nobody would feel left out.

#14Went to a private school where the teachers were real power hungry sh*t heads, you could get in trouble for having your shirt untucked, and some would be real a*s bags about it, literally crouched down and scooting along the benches at lunch time, ie even at lunch if it popped out while sitting you could get in trouble, I ran through the school hand book and it said sweaters with the school emblem can be worn at any time, so I bought one 3 sizes too big and wore it constantly, it went down to almost my knees and I would happily announced that I wasn't even wearing the uniform shirt let alone tucking it in. the a*s teachers got pissed off and took it to the school dean but I was right and it was allowed, like half the school switched to sweaters after that.

#15Most stores have a policy against returning air mattresses because people often buy them for a weekend and return them when they don't need them anymore. I was one of these people. At the service counter I was told all of this and that they would not refund my money because the box was open. The most they could do is exchange it for a new one, which I did. After a quick 360 at the counter I returned my unopened air mattress and got my money back.

#16Here's the one that saved me $100.
For some f*cking reason, my car got towed from a Taco Bell parking lot while I was at a store next door for only a few minutes.
$100, cash only, to get it back, because typical towing company.
I looked up the state law, and to request a private tow at a business, the owner of the establishment must be present. A manager is not good enough. Since they probably don't even know who owns that particular place, obviously, that didn't happen.
Got my car back, no charge.

#17My math teacher in seventh grade told us if we put “toaster” as an answer anywhere in our work, she would count it right. She said it so quietly that only a few people could hear. I had forgotten about it until finals that year and I had no idea what six of the answers were, so I put toaster and she gave me full credit for all six. She wrote that she had never graded one where someone put that

#18When you're playing a phone game that wants to charge you extra to play without ads. These are between levels and sometimes during play.
As the game is loading (before you start playing) turn on airplane mode and the game now runs ad free. The trick is to let it load THEN turn off your connection. You can't save your progress online, but it's a small price to pay for preventing full-screen ads with no timer or x.
Some of these games will actually tell you that you're playing the ad-free version when you do this.
#19I am the lucky beneficiary of a loophole:
Back in the 1960s, a school district in my hometown was broken up and absorbed into the surrounding districts.
Fast forward to 2003. I'm applying to colleges. I discovered that there was a scholarship fund for people living in that old district's area (like me). The district is gone, but the scholarship still exists! I applied, and got the scholarship. I don't think there were any other applicants.
#20In the shipyard, you gotta have safety glasses. If you lose them, our safety department makes you talk to your boss's boss and have him write a note saying that he talked to you so you can have another pair of glasses. Well, I walked in to the safety office without safety glasses and asked for another pair. They said to go get a note. I then asked if they were going to let me walk out without any safety glasses. They knew that wasn't allowed, so they gave me a scratched up pair. Well, the reason they had those on hand is because you can trade your scratched ones for new ones. So I took the scratched ones, dealt with them for a day, and then went in the next day and traded them in for new ones. Never had to talk to my boss's boss and get a note.
#21NY State had a glitch in their Motor Vehicle system for a while. If you got a moving violation, you would plead guilty, and overpay it by $5. They would send you back a check for $5, but you don't cash it. They would not apply points to your license until the case was fully adjudicated. If you waited until a year passed, and then cashed it, those points would roll off, so you would never actually have any points showing on your license.
#22In the Netherlands you can get crazy discounts in the december month with a coupon in the mac Donalds app. But these coupons would expire after like 4 min so you couldn’t use it all day. The loophole was that you just could screenshot the QR-code on the coupon and use is al day. Oooh I gained so many kilograms that december. Dont mind my bad english btw..its not my mother Tongue you know.
#23Kroger has a $9.99 build your own 6 pack of beer. Many times you can build your own 6 pack of super nice beers that might be $14 for a 4 pack of $15 for a 6 pack. You can save quite a bit on nice beer.
#24One time the local mall was having a guitar hero contest back when those games were super popular. Whoever got the most points on a song throughout the whole day won tickets to see Stone Temple Pilots. What they didn’t know was their contest was fatally flawed to anyone that actually knew the game. If you play a song on expert like cherub rock and hit most of the notes, you will naturally get a higher scorer than if you hit every note in a song like Mississippi queen just because there are way more notes in the song, so that’s what I did, played cherub rock and got a score of a couple hundred thousand, and no one beat it the rest of the day, and I won the tickets.

#25There was a guy in Texas who bought a $500k house for just $16. No one had lived in the house for 3 years and the bank had not claimed it so he just filled out a $16 form claiming ownership and the house was his.
#26A husband and a wife registering their cars solely in the other’s name that way if they send you a red light camera ticket the name/gender will not match the person driving and you will win a dispute by mailing in a copy of your driver’s license.

#27When I was a kid, I found a laundry machine that gave you 5 quarters instead of 4 when you put a dollar in. Abused that like crazy as a broke kid.
And by abused I mean I did it like 5 times then went to do other stuff
#28A good shot but not eventually a real loophole was the "drink Pepsi, get a Harrier jet" guy.
In 1996, Pepsi ran a promotion where you could collect points by buying Pepsi products. The more points you got, the more stuff you could get, such as t-shirts, free Pepsi, sunglasses, etc. They also had a commercial where they advertised a Harrier jet for 7 million points.
One guy read the rules of the promotion and found that you could buy points fo $0.10. That means to get 7 million points you'd have to pay $700,000. The going cost for a Harrier at the time was about $20 million or so.
So, one guy raised the money, bought the points and demanded the jet. When Pepsi refused he sued them.
He lost, but it was a good try.

#29In Sydney, Australia, we have the Opal card system for public transport. You load up the card with monies, and tap it when you get on and off public transport. Now these days, per week you get a discount on all your trips after your 8th. Well. That was brought in after people exploited the previous rule. After 8 trips, all trips were free. So people would ride the buses to and from stops, tap tap tapping away, leaving enough time between each tap for it to register as an individual trip, and after a few hours of venturing the city and tapping, they then had the rest of their weekly travel FOR FREE. The news did a piece of everyone doing it, and soon after the new rule came in lmao.

#30My microwave stopped turning on, so I went to Best Buy to get a new one. I tried the old one in another outlet and it came back to life so I reinstalled it. Returned new microwave to Best Buy. Went back home to see that the old microwave had now died again once more (for good) and then just drove right back to Best Buy where I bought the brand new microwave I just returned as an “open box item” for half price.
Probably a fluke, but it was a rare instance of “the system” working in my favor.
#31Company cafeteria had an option to order a half burrito. However, the cost of two half burritos was less than the cost of one full burrito. On top of that, the chef would make a half burrito by cutting a new tortilla in "half" and generally gave a healthier portion than just a half. Thus, ordering 2 half burritos was equivalent to about one and a half full burritos and cost less than a full burrito.
#32Hotels/events/pre booked things that charge you to cancel at short notice.
A lot of places charge you to cancel at short notice, but is free to rearrange. If you call up and rebook for a few weeks time, then a day or so later (so you don't sound cheeky!) call back and cancel for free. Rather than paying an expensive cancellation fee for not cancelling in advance!
#33I read in a book of curious legal cases about a drunk driving incident (I think in the States). The arresting officers had taken the driver's blood as evidence, but no other evidence. When the prosecution attempted to present this evidence, the defence successfully argued that if the defendant had been drunk then he would have been unable to consent to the blood test, meaning the evidence was obtained illegally. The defence won.
I wish I could remember the book.
#34When I was 10-11ish, I really loved my little pony. And there was an app on the app store for equestria girls (an MLP spinoff), where you did quests and stuff. Well, to complete the quests you often needed help from MLP characters. The way that you got their help was either by scanning a doll, or using gems. You had to pay for gems, and only got them for free rarely. I had no Equestria Girls dolls, so this really sucked for me. Until I thought, "Hang on, what's stopping people from just going to the store and scanning dolls?" which then led me to realizing that I could just look up pictures online and scan them. It ended up working, and I was so proud I bragged to my mom about it for ages.
#35While I was at university, my department at one point switched from requiring students to hand in physical copies of assignments to digital submissions. Apparently a few people on another course had some problems with the procedure on deadline day, so the department sent us a note round saying that to cover for that, anyone who submitted incorrectly on deadline day would have their individual deadline extended by 12 hours.
Cue a load of students deliberately submitting unfinished assignments incorrectly so they could get the extra time.

#36My grocery store gives 5 cents off your purchase for every reusable grocery bag you use. Once I was behind a woman who bought 5 reusable bags of groceries with food stamps. The store gave her 25 cents cash. She earned money for grocery shopping.
#37Ex of mine while in a texting argument stated I only wanted sex, and in the next message said I was only nice when i wanted to get laid.
So logically I found a loophole, put the two above quotes together and my ex realized that I always want sex therefore I am always nice. Boom goes the dynamite
Now we are happily dead to one another

#38In music festival or venue that use reusable cups, you usually pay like 1$ for the cup refundable when you bring it . There's always cups left everywhere that people are to trashed to bring back. Collect a couple, cash the refund and there you go : free drink.
Drank all day long for 5$ at Osheaga the last time I went.
#39i still use the loophole of jumping on a shuttle bus out of LAX to a parking garage(/or hotel, yes) and then calling an Uber/Lyft from there to avoid the airport prices. Brings the ride home down to $10 from $40.

#40For appointments that cost money to cancel with less than 24hrs notice, they often are free to reschedule within that window, so you reschedule it to a week later, then cancel it a day or two later.

#41In York, its supposedly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a longbow if you're stood on the wall, except on Sundays.
Obviously I'm not going to be left alone if I do this, but it's a well known 'loophole' where I live.
#42School had a policy that if you missed a test, you had to go to the library to complete it upon return. The proctor in the library was usually a sub who gave 0 f*cks or wasn't organized enough to know which tests were open book, open note, etc. I was awful at math and lazy so I skipped the test, took it the next day open book in the library. I could not believe I was the only one exploiting this loophole. That or everyone was being quiet about it to not tip off admin.
#43In 2014 a loophole was discovered in Ireland so that class A drugs were legal. Took a week for the government to criminalize it "again"
#44I have purposefully booked flights I had a good hunch would be overbooked, then show up the day of, claim the rebooked flight +$500 voucher and have myself a damn good time in vegas for 48 hours
#45When I was young (~12yo) I received a free chicken sandwich coupon for Chik-fil-a that I got from a contest at school. There was no fine print on it. No exp date, no "one per customer", no nothing. So I used my dad's photocopier at home and made a f*ck ton of copies, talking like 100 copies. Every week my mom would drive me to Chik-fil-a, wait in the car (I think she was embarrassed but didn't want to suppress my enthusiasm), I'd go inside, and walk out with a couple free sandwiches.
Did it for like a year before we moved away. Pretty sure the highschool employees just took pity on a 12yo and honestly didn't care enough to say no. I work in marketing now and fine print is one of the things I proofread 3 times before approving.
#46There is a limit on how much money an individual can move out of China each year. One guy created a shell company in another country, sued his parent company, and didn't show up to defend himself. The judge automatically gave the lawsuit to the plantiff, moving millions out of China.
#47One time when I lived in the barracks, the rule was you could only have a 6 pack of beer, a bottle of wine, or a 750ml bottle of liquor in your refrigerator. A guy down the hall kept a 30 pack in his room, and when they came by to do inspections one day they tried to give him sh*t, but the beers were just in his room and not in his refrigerator. We received an updated SOP shortly after that to remove that loophole
#48Opening Day in my Major League Baseball city: it is cheaper to park at a meter and get a ticket than to park in a legal parking lot.
#49My parents keep telling me the story how they told me to not touch their phones, this was like 9-12 years ago when smartphones were still booming in popularity, since I was a smart toddler who wanted to play videogames on my parents phones I used a loophole, apparently I would say "I wanna show you something on your phones" and I proceeded to play with it using their hands I technically wasn't touching it but I still was. I used that same technique with a lot of other things in my house
#50Applying for graduate schools, all the apps cost money to submit ($50+ each usually) but you can often get them waived if you're a member of certain organizations/groups (stuff like honors societies, career development orgs for underrepresented minorities, etc.). I found out that just being an APPLICANT (which was free) for one of those groups counted for the fee waiver, and got application fees waived for over half of the schools I applied to, even after being rejected from that program.
#51A kid from my high school was about 30 seconds late to class and the teacher refused to mark him “present” and made him go sign in as “late” at the office. In protest, he went and ate a sit down breakfast and showed back up with about 5 minutes left of class with his late slip. Teacher threw a fit that he skipped class, but since he never signed in, he didn’t face any consequences

#52If you ask for a side of extra sauce at the drive up window after you've already paid, they usually won't go to the trouble to charge you that extra quarter.
#53My uncle got a stain on his favorite tie. It was dry-clean-only, but after calling and finding out it would cost $10 to get it dry cleaned he decided to just throw it in the donation box. A month later he was at the thrift store when he spotted his tie on a rack. It had been cleaned and was for sale for a dollar.
#54Was at a bar. They ran a $2 shot special for any of the house stuff. I like vodka tonics though. However, those are $6.
Me, having taken Algebra twice, I knew $2 is less than $6. I ask the bartender how much she'll charge me for tonic water. She replies, "nothing".
I proceed to order a $2 shot of vodka and a free glass of tonic water.

#55I struggled with upper-level mathematics in high school. In my junior year, I was barely passing pre-calculus, so I was looking for a way to get out of taking calculus, while still making it look like I took four years of math, which my advisor insisted was something I needed to do for college. So I went through the course-list and found out accounting was technically classified as a math class, rather than an elective. I took accounting 1 as my math my senior year, and actually learned things I would use, like how to write a check and balance a budget.
Unfortunately, my high school caught on to the trick, and the advisors made them change accounting to an elective. My poor little brother had the loophole closed on him.
#56Apparently you have 24 hours to claim an illegally-parked car (depending on the location) in my city so some "pros" will take a ticket on game days and actually save money on parking for football and baseball.
#57If you're in the UK, there's an insurance comparison company called Compare the Market. The way they set themselves apart -- because really, they're all basically the same -- is by having an actually-really-kind-of-good set of rewards schemes called Meerkat Movies and Meerkat Meals respectively. For the former, you can get two for one cinema tickets on Tuesdays or Wednesdays; for the latter, you can get two for one food at a fair number of restaurants, Sunday to Thursday. You get a year's worth of access to both programs whenever you buy insurance through them.
Fortunately, it's any kind of insurance that works. One day's worth of travel insurance for a UK-based trip will set you back about £1.50, which means that you're almost certainly going to save money by getting it as long as you use the program once in that year. I'm pretty sure it's not how they intended it to be used, but I've saved a fortune (and still ended up getting my actual insurance with someone else).
#58some guy with a math degree won tens of million in a small time lottery by figuring out a way to almost almost always win by buying a certain amount of tickets (10k worth or so).
#59There is a department store downtown in my city. Parking downtown is a b*tch, and expensive, so the dept store offers free (or maybe just cheap, its been a while) parking to customers.
The trick is to park at the dept store, quickly buy a belt or something, do whatever you wanted to do downtown, then at a later date (or later that day even) go back and return the item.
If you frequently/regularly did this, you could return an item and buy a new one in a single trip each time you do this. All while getting free parking downtown for spending a few minutes in the store.

#63I suppose the rest of reddit may not work a 9-5 type job that's strict on the hours, but let me tell you about a loophole that saved me from getting fired well over 10 times in the 3 years i worked there.
If you're running late, buy donuts. It's that simple. It even works if you're 3 hours late. Supposed to be there at 7:30, wake up at 10:00, swing by the donut place, 2 dozen donuts, $15, show up, charismaticly present the donuts explaining you waited in line 3 hours at the donut shop!
#64"Let's race to that pole. Last one to touch it is gay!"
If you never touch the pole, then you can't be gay. Play your cards right and you can be the only non-gay kid in the neighborhood.
#65When the U.S. government issued the Sacagawea dollar coin, they wanted to get them into circulation as quickly as possible so they'd catch on (Narrator: they didn't), so they had a thing where you could order them and have them shipped to you for free. People realized you could pay for the coins using one of those credit cards that gives you frequent flier miles as a reward. So you order $1000 of coins, put it on the card, get the coins, deposit them into your bank, pay off the credit card. You've just gotten 100% free frequent flier miles.

#67Our dog is supposed to be in her crate while we eat dinner. She considers it being in the crate if her hind feet are in there.
#68The highschool I went to and some other highschools had ways of giving students credit if they didn't pass a class. My school had a program where students would have to stay after school and finish an online course. As soon as you finish the course, you are guaranteed the missing credit. The online courses are web-based so you can Google pretty much all the answers. Since it's web-based, you are allowed to do it at home too. My junior year, I hated this one class so I barely went to it and purposely failed. They enrolled me in the program the following year. I finished the program in a week. TL;DR - I failed a class in highschool for not showing up to that class at all. Got the same credit after making up with a course within a week.
#69At 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, they give you just as many fries with a "little fries" as they do if you order "regular fries" or even "large fries." Use this to save a whole dollar when you go there!
#70The carried interest loophole that allows hedge fund managers to get lower taxes on their income.
If you hear someone talking about wealthy people using loopholes to pay lower taxes, there's a decent chance this is one of the loopholes to which they are referring.
#71In 1999 I went on an 8th grade trip to Disney World. Didn't want to wait in line... Discovered a hidden button on the back of the Fast Pass machines. Turns out to be the maintenance button and it spits out passes each time you press it.
That was a great day. Bunch of jack a*s 8th grade friends skipping lines.

#73In Ireland a Romanian man got caught drink driving. Got thrown out of court because he was never given a copy of his charge in Irish
#74This is rather specific, but once in a math exam, the task was to find where two graphs met (we were supposed to find that out through a formula we had just learned). I didn't know the formula, but one look at the two sketches provided by the teacher and I knew where they ALSO met: both started in the point (0|0). I simply wrote that down and hoped the teacher would accept that.
Only one other person wrote that down. We both got full marks on that task, best loophole that's ever helped me
#75A local restaurant chain near me ran a special where every purchase gains you points, and every 100 points you get a $10 discount on your next purchase. It turns out to do this, they would just credit $10 to your account, which was usable when you used their rewards card.
So I purchased a $100 gift card, and got $110 in value. Then I used the $100 gift card to buy another $100 gift card, and now had $120.
I stopped there once I confirmed the loophole, and the staff was laughing pretty hard about it. The rules quickly changed
#76Back in the 90s America Online would send out millions of free trial CDs that had a registration code for a free trial for like 2 or 3 weeks, I cant recall. For it to work you either had to enter a credit card or checking account number. You could easily enter a bogus checking account number and get free internet. By the time your trial expired you already had another trial CD in the mail.
#77When burger king first released their rodeo cheeseburgers (cheeseburger with onion rings and bbq sauce) they were $1.50. However a double cheeseburger at the time was $1. So I would order 2 double cheeseburgers and a value sized onion ring, and a side of bbq sauce for a total of $3, and would just add onion rings and bbq sauce to the double cheeseburgers myself, creating two DOUBLE rodeo cheeseburgers for the same price as two single rodeo cheeseburgers.
I nearly ran burger king out of business.
