This is a completely unbiased, non-sponsored post and review about the thredUP service.
As many of you know, I love clothes. I love purses. I love shoes. And most of all, I love a good deal.
Pair that with the fact that I have a three year old daughter who is growing like a weed, and I’m pretty much always in the market for something to help us both out.
This is where thredUP comes in. I discovered thredUP when I was looking for a way to clean out my closet. I donate most of my clothing, but there are some high end items that I consign so I can use that money to buy new items. I do this with Charlotte’s clothes a lot too, because many times she grows out of things after only having worn them a handful of times, or sometimes, not at all. With thredUP, you just send your gently used clothes to them and they give you a lump sum for what you’ve sent. Their site is also filled with AMAZING deals if you’re looking to add to your wardrobe. Like I am. All the time.
I ordered a clean out kit from thredUP and it showed up rather quickly. It’s a large bag that approximately a laundry basket worth of clothing can fit into. I sorted through my clothes and donated a few bags and put a few items in the thredUp bag. I sent it off and within three weeks, I had over $100 of cash/credit in my thredUP account. I could have cashed that money out, but I used it toward a brand new $2500 Max Mara coat – that was on the site for $140. I NEVER would have afforded that otherwise! I’ve sent in two bags since, and with that money, I’ve probably ordered seven or eight times. Clothes for me and SO many clothes for Charlotte. It’s safe to say, I am obsessed.
Let me show you my most recent thredUP purchase.
I had 56.64 in credit. I purchased everything you see below. The Alice and Olivia top alone originally retailed for $350. This is easily over $500 worth of clothing, that with my credit, I just paid $30.86 for. Make sure to have your push notifications turned on for your phone too, because they regularly send out promo codes that are good for that day only!
Within a week, I had this box on my doorstep.
As you can see, everything is packaged very well.
And here it all is, opened up. As always, I’m thrilled with the condition of everything. The flats look to be brand new. The dress still has tags on it. The Minnie Mouse Stride Rite shoes will be perfect for our trip to Disney next week.
My only complaint ever with thredUP is how little they pay out for clothes. So don’t send anything to them expecting to get top dollar. Personally, I pay the 12.99 to have the items they don’t list shipped back to me. But if you’re looking to clean out your closet with minimal effort AND make some money in the process, go for it.
