Have you heard about the website thredUP, an online resale shop? They contacted me recently to try out their service and I was very excited because, as you know, I absolutely love thrifting and getting good deals on clothes. I love the idea of an online resale shop that lets you find amazing bargains.

With all of the items they sell, it might seem a little daunting to find something you want. Or you might be adverse to buying other peoples clothing. But I’m here to tell you not to worry and that I definitely think you should give it a try!


Fill Out Your Account

When you first log in, you have the option to set your sizes. I highly recommend this because it will filter out all items that will most likely not fit you. This is very important because being a resale shop, they have TONS of items.

Once you’ve clicked on an item, there will be some really important information on the right hand side. The first thing I check is the condition of the item. I definitely prefer an item that does not show signs of wear or has any stains. Most likely, I would only consider purchasing an item that is like-new. However, if you happen to find a great deal and don’t mind a more worn-in item, then by all means, help yourself to that new dress or shirt!



Each item also has a few measurements listed, but that might not have all the information you need. If I came across an item that did not have measurements, I sent an online chat (they provide amazing customer service!). you can find a live chat in the bottom of your browser. They will either look up the measurements or find the brand’s website to inform you what measurements their different sizes are. This will help you decide if an item will fit or not.


Search Bar

Use that search bar to find what you’re looking for, whether it be a chambray dress or off-the-shoulder top.¬† You can also search for particular brands if you want to see what they have available from your favorite stores.


Coupon Codes

Don’t forget to use coupon codes! The site has a general 40% off code on your first order. They also wanted to give you 50% off on cocktail dresses! Just use the code COCKTAIL50 on these dresses!

Earn Money

You can give your clothes to thredUP to sell and earn some money. If you have some top brand name items in excellent condition that you no longer wear, consider requesting a clean out kit. They will send you a bag for you to pack up and ship them your clothes. Depending on quality of the items, they will list them for sale and you will receive some money! See how it works.
