thredUP Contest & Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to review thredUP. It’s an online kids’ consignment shop that sells top brand name merchandise at up to 75% off of retail prices. Not only can you purchase, both, new and like-new items, but you can also make money. We all know that, as parents, we have a never ending stash of clothes that our children have outgrown. thredUP wants them! You can earn twenty to forty percent of the resale value for each piece! Hello piggy bank!

Check out my review over at Eighty MPH Mom to enter for a chance to win a $50 box of clothing and a one-on-one styling consultation with, chief mom, Carly Fauth!

You can also like thredUP on their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter to keep yourself up to date on the happenings in their neck of the woods. They’re currently holding a Pinterest contest to win a $100 thredUP shopping spree!

Check it out and good luck! And if you sign up through the above link you’ll get a $5 credit towards your first purchase!

    Beware before sending them items to sell. Look up reviews online. There are many with stories like mine. I sent a bag stuffed full of 30+ items, all name-brand and they “declined” all but 5 inexpensive pieces. The stuff they didn’t accept included Land’s End, TCP, even a VanHeusen 2-pc suit that my son wore ONCE for 3 hours, several NWT and NWOT items, and more. I got less than $10. They can’t be making much money by declining to “accept” (and then sell) so many items from so many people, so I’m starting to suspect that they are selling the “declined” items elsewhere (you don’t get the declined stuff back; they say they give it to charity or “recycle” the fabric.)

    I’m an experienced consignor. I’ve successfully sold over $1000 worth of my children’s clothes at pretty strict consignment sales over the past 7+ years, so I know what to look for. It’s not like I sent in Circo items that had been washed 20+ times!!

    I did purchase a box of clothing from them, and it was all as described (although, IMO, a bit expensive for used clothing especially with shipping.)

    Just proceed with caution! Look at their BBB rating too…a big fat “F”!!
