If you’re like me, you have probably seen commercials, adverts, etc., about ThredUp on social media. I am all about trading in clothes for some cash or credit, when it’s time to purge my closet, and I wanted to give ThredUp a try, this time around. Today I’m going to share with you all about my experience using ThredUp and show you some of the things I purchased with my credit.
The first thing you should do is clean out your closet and make a pile of things you want to sell or donate. Next, go to the ThredUp website to order a “Clean Out Kit.” ThredUp will then send you a clean out bag, with postage, and instructions of how to send in your clothes.
Once you fill up the clean out bag, drop the bag off at your nearest FedEx or USPS location and it’ll be on it’s way.
The items that ThredUp may not be able to sell, they will then donate the remaining items on their end. I love that because I don’t have to go to several drop off sites to donate my clothes.
Of the clothing items that you send in, ThredUp will notify you each time something of yours sells on their site. You will receive an amount of credit from the things you sell and you can use it toward a consignment purchase on their website. You will also be charged a small free once your clean out bag is processed, so just keep that in mind. I think it took about 6 weeks for my clean out bag to be processed, because of the high demand. Overall, the process of sending in clothing, shoes, and some jewelry, was very easy and I didn’t mind the wait. ThredUp will also send you an email with the status of your bag so that you can keep checking to see when it will be processed.
Once a few of my items sold and I had some credit on my account, it was time to look for some things I need this fall! I think I received my order within just a few days of ordering, so that was great! You have the option of trying on the clothes and then returning them if they don’t work out, but, again, you will be charged a small fee.
A black and grey sweater? My favorite! (Not even joking) I found this sweater from Loft and really liked the damask print.
I have been wanting a pair of leather pants for a couple of years now but could never find any that I liked. I found this brand new pair, with tags still attached, from Free People for about eighty percent off. What a bargain!
You wanna know what’s crazier than me wearing leather pants, it’s me wearing something pink! This sweater is also from Loft and I think it’ll be a great addition to my fall wardrobe. I love the sleeves on this sweater and the fact that it’s loose and tunic-style.
Including the small amount of credit I made, I purchased these three items for less than $30! I’m really happy with my ThredUp experience and I know that I’ll buy clothes through them again. I would love to hear from you if you have ever traded in/bought clothed through ThredUp and what your experience was like!
