Gymboree skort

Are you looking for a way to save on clothes? A few weeks ago I ordered a big box of clothing from my favorite online consignment store, and I eagerly awaited the box. I had purchased some back-to-school clothes for a little girl, who needed some basic school clothes for her kindergarten start. During a second inspection, I discovered that a few of the embellishments on one of the skorts were missing, and I was also a bit disappointed that a purple hoodie I had gotten for her was showing more signs of wear than I expected from ThredUp.

In the past, a final ThredUp quality inspection has caught mistakes like this and refunded me the purchase, while still sending along the item, so I decided to contact ThredUp customer service. After sending them some photos, they kindly refunded the money that I had spent on the two items. Now, that’s great customer service in my book, and this is one of the reasons, why I keep coming back. I know that I can count on high quality and great customer service at ThredUp, and that means a lot, when buying second hand clothing online.

So, yesterday I decided to go through the ThredUp back-to-school clothes collection to see, if I could find a couple of new pieces for the little girl, and I sure did. I found a Levis jeans skort, a khaki Gymboree skort, a pair of O’Neill jeans and a pink Gymboree hoodie, all perfect for starting kindergarten.

I do not buy uniform tops second hand, because they usually fade too quickly, but since ThredUp took care of the uniform bottoms, all that is needed is basics and uniform tops.

I also found quite a few beautiful dresses and even a swim suit for Bellamy Blue, who is already wearing a few size 12 dresses.

ThredUp Free Clothing

I ended up getting 18 pieces of clothing plus a couple of bloomers and a hat for only $0.64 out of pocket with free shipping after credits, and this is surely better than any deal I can find in store. For our family of six, ThredUp has been a real blessing.

If you have back-to-school shopping to do, I can highly recommend doing it at ThredUp….and do it now, before everyone else gets the good deals.

  • Resist temptation and only buy items at $2.9, if you buy 17 items at $2.99, you even get free shipping, and if you sign up below, you also get $10 FREE, which means you can get 17 items for only $2.40 each!
  • Or buy shoes, an expensive pair of name brand jeans, or another name brand item for your tween or teen minus the $10 you only pay $2.99 in shipping.


How To Shop Smart At ThredUp:

  1. Sign up for your free $10 ThredUp bonus
  2. Choose the gender and sizes you want
  3. Choose prices low to high in the top right hand-side and start browsing.
  4. Check out the new-with-tag section (in the sidebar under “condition”)
  5. Add everything you like to your cart to reserve the item
  6. You can always remove it from your cart during your final sorting.
  7. Buy items such as jeans, jean shorts, dresses, skirts and jackets, which are hard to find at low prices even on clearance.
  8. Everything ships in 3 – 7 business days.


If you need a way to save on clothes, I can highly recommend buying jeans, jackets, dresses and such as ThredUp. Make sure to take advantage of the free $10 ThredUp sign up bonus while it lasts. There is no minimum order, but shipping is $2.99. If you spend $50 before the $10 discount, you get free shipping. If you sign up through my ThredUp bonus link you get $10 to shop for and so do I.


My biggest problem with ThredUp is that it is quite difficult to choose, which items to buy and which to leave behind. I am a realist, and so I realize that ThredUp is a treasure, where the terms can change any day. This is why I buy ahead for my baby girl at ThredUp – you just never know, when this great deal will end. I know that I will never be able to buy these gorgeous dresses new, not even at clearance prices.

What will you get for your free $10 at ThredUp?
