It’s no secret I love to shop. I mean, duh it’s practically integrated into my job everyday. However, as a single girl in her twenties with champagne taste and a beer budget I have to watch how often I’m swiping that card and be conscious of how I am spending my money. Which also means I am the self-proclaimed queen of doing the research to score a good deal to ensure I am getting the best price on something. From big ticket, hard to find, and designer items all the way to everyday wear eBay has been one of my best kept secrets for finding items I love for less. eBay is also one of my top spots to score my favorite active and athleisure wear– which is honestly what I am running around in like 90% of the time. Some of my favorite activewear brands that I acquire on eBay are Lululemon, Adidas, and Nike. I scored this pink jacket I am wearing in today’s post for almost 50% off retail price brand new with tags!
Almost every single item I purchase off of eBay is brand new– which I love especially when it comes to clothing. I scored my entire outfits head to toe off of eBay, and every item I purchased new with tags (NWT for eBay slang) and under retail price!
Here are a few of my tips for finding what you are looking for on eBay, I mean they have over 1.1 BILLION listings on there which might sound overwhelming, but it’s actually pretty simple to find what you are looking for (or in my case things I didn’t know I was looking for).
- I usually ALWAYS purchase using the “buy it now” or “make an offer” feature. Sometimes bidding can pay off on bigger ticket items, but usually if its clothing, shoes or accessories it is easier to just buy it now.
- I only buy from sellers who accept returns or have eBays money back guarantee. You can find these details on the listing for the item!
- Over 69% of the items on eBay ship for free! Shipping can get expensive so I usually look for sellers who offer free shipping!
These are some of my tips to help you find not only the exact item you are looking for, but also the best deal! It’s super simple! eBay has also been one of my secret weapons for items I loved that either sold out, or were from last season!
