If you’re not familiar with ThredUp, it’s an online consignment store. You can send in your own clothes to get $ or store credit or just shop to your heart’s content.
My favorite feature is to be able to create personal shops, which means filtering down to something specific you’re looking for.
For example, I needed a white cardigan. I had a shirt that cried out for it, and it’s too hot for my white blazer. So, I just created a shop for white cardigans in my size and waited until the right one came along.
And it did. I got this one for $18 plus change (with a promo code) and it was new with tags.
I had a favorite dress that disappeared (how does one lose a dress?). So, I created a Calvin Klein dress shop and hoped and prayed that it would appear and it finally did yesterday!
If you’re wary of buying clothes online, the personal shops come in handy because you can filter by brand. So, if you already know you like Loft, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Cole Haan, etc., then you can just create personal shops for that brand.
Here are my personal shops right now:
I’ve finally gotten to enjoy Lululemon workout clothes thanks to ThredUp. No way I’d ever pay full price.
Want Toms, but don’t want to pay $40+ for them? I got these for $20. They’re my new favorite shoe.
Don’t want to pay $200 + for Cole Haan pumps with Nike technology? (or can’t like me)
Pay $45, then.
I haven’t shopped handbags, yet, but again…great prices on designer brands (Kate Spade below).
If you spend $70 then shipping is free and if you spend $120 in a month you get the free shipping for a month. Return shipping is free if you choose to get store credit or $8.99 if you want a refund.
I have probably returned at least one item with every order, but it’s no big deal. Just put it back in the box, print out your return paperwork and label and drop it at the post office. The hard part is waiting for them to receive it and credit your account so you can shop again.
I can’t decide if I should tell you to download the mobile app or not. It’s very tempting to scroll through when you’re bored and then hard to say no when something catches your eye. BUT, they have coupon codes very often that are only good on the app. 10-15% usually. Sometimes I put something in my cart and leave it there hoping a code pops up. You have 24hrs before it puts your item back out for someone else to buy.
And, of course, you can always send in your own clothes to get some $$ towards your purchases.
Oh, and don’t forget, they sell/buy kids clothes, too!
And…no, this isn’t a sponsored post. I just love ThredUp.
