Why yes, I did score a brand new $2500 coat for next to nothing.

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.

This is me, in my glorious Max Mara coat. I’d pretty much like to sleep in it, but instead I’ve only been brave enough to wear it twice.

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.

Want to try thredUP? Use this link for $20 in credit to spend on the site. As you can see,a little goes a long way!

    Wow, this is great. So much better than making time to bring stuff to a consignment store and seems better than other sites. Appreciate your review a ton! On it!

    I’ve used Thred Up in the past and I’ve liked most of the clothes that I have ordered, not all but most. My biggest issue is that I sent an overly packed Clean Out bag to them and got a measly $8 for it. Are you kidding me? There were at least 2 or 3 skirt suits in there as well as many other clothes. I’ve never done anything with the $8, I don’t even know if it’s still there. I won’t send them my clothes anymore, I’d rather just donate it at this point.

    I’ve used thredUp a couple of times. I think I used it the first time after I read one of your Facebook posts! There is usually a credit of some kind when you first sign up and occasional other credits. These are important, because as Amy and others have said, they don’t pay out much. BUT, if you were going to take everything to Goodwill anyway, at least you get a little something. I’ve gotten a couple of really cute dresses for nothing. Just pour a glass of wine and sit down with your laptop and shop!!

      Exactly! I still donate a lot, but now I always keep a thredUp bag in my closet and immediately put anything in it I think they might take. So easy!

    I used your link about two weeks ago and ordered a brand-new pair of jeans and two shirts for my daughter. My balance was then just under nine dollars that I paid. Within five days the package was delivered to my doorstep. Everything was nicely packed and tagged and exactly in the condition that was mentioned. I will definitely order from them again and keep in mind that when I send things in it’s more of a donation and not a moneymaker and that’s fine with me. Thank you for sharing that link as I’m always looking for some great bargains!
