Thieves and magic

The thief in my group now has access to the invisibility and inaudibility spells via the mage of another player.

I still wonder what benefit this would give the thief if it comes to picking pockets and the stealing (or other) hijinks.

I guess it could give him at least a steady income per day similar to the price price of the two spells (2×20gp) but what about Hijinks?

I'd probably extend him the benefit of the spell's die roll modifier on his hijinks.

Hmm would that be 2 for a second level spell?
And 4 for both spells?
