For over six months or more, I have been using Listia. I discovered it last year and I've been using it actively ever since.
What I like the most about this site is that it's like going into a garage sale and bidding on the items you want the most. Most of it used stuff, but you don't end up paying a dime if you win - at the most you'll pay shipping. Plus, you can gain more points by putting your own stuff for bidding (or pay for points $5.00 gives you 1,500 credits).
Now what exactly do you win?
Okay, here's photos (taken from the site) of actual stuff I've won -
|I won the movie Mr. Books for 500 credits, no shipping costs. Worked perfectly.|
|I won the movie Red Eye for only 606 credits, no shipping costs. Worked perfectly!|
I won these three movies for only 20 credits, shipping $5.99. Worked perfectly!
I think if you are looking for an item in particular, you would do best with this site. Looking around for just anything, you will get overwhelmed, I promise.
It isn't like there isn't crap out there either. I won a "mystery" prize which turned out to be an envelope with a couple of stickers in it. I also won a sync cord for my iPhone which fell apart in a couple of weeks. I also tried entering a few of the low credit perfume sample giveaways which had astronomical shipping costs, and I didn't follow through with them.
But I seriously think it's worth a shot, so sign up for Listia today! Use this referral link and get 100 credits (and I get credits if you sign up!).
