As we gear up to go back to school this month, and organize our children’s closets to get rid of the “old” and make room for the “new”…there is one company that I always keep in mind ~ FlipSize! In case you don’t remember from our past reviews, they are the largest online baby & kids clothing swap site!
Here’s how it works…you “flip” unwanted and second hand (gently used) clothing for points. Those points can be used to buy new/used clothes in their massive “mall”, and a new feature is that you can also exchange the points you earn for Gift Cards at Amazon, Kohl’s, Target, Toys R Us, and more!
Since last summer, my girls and I have had so much fun picking out “new” clothes at FlipSize for all four seasons for them to wear, including, but not limited to: shoes, bathing suits, tops, shorts, pants, dresses, and more! As a sentimental mommy, I have always saved every item of clothing my girls have worn – not because I am a closet hoarder, but also because its nice to use as “hand me downs” later down the road. Well, as my girls have grown (here is a pic of us last summer), sadly their clothes have not! So what was I going to do with my totes full of clothing???
Sure, I could save it for another baby, or maybe hold a garage sale…but I have an even better idea: FLIP IT! That’s right! You can flip (swap) clothes with FlipSize for FREE! At no cost to you, you can actually join FlipSize with a Basic Membership, OR for $29.99/year you can upgrade to a Gold Membership and have access to even more extra features. Here is what you get with a membership:
Build your own box of clothes instead of having to take a premade box that someone else put together. Hand-pick every item and only pick items you want.
- General Access
Access to thousands of clothes in our main mall shopping area, all at up to 80% off retail prices!
- Home Pick-up/Delivery
They’ll have USPS or any of our other shipping partners pick them up at your door, or use any company you want to ship them in. Plus, they also ship all orders to your door.
- Gold Hold (Gold Membership Feature)
Gold members can hold items safely in their carts (reserve) for a specified period of days without being able to be taken by another member. Basic carts are not safe. Shop over time.
- Referral Points (Gold Membership Feature)
Parents always know other parents. Refer your friends and earn 100 Flip Points if they sign-up for Gold. They must use your referring member ID upon sign-up.
- Other Features Coming Soon!!
Next month, they are launching their NEW website, which will come with a whole new set of incredible features for both the Basic & Gold Members!!
As my oldest gets ready to start preschool next week, we took the time to clear out and organize her closet to make both our lives easier each morning…and I have such a peace of mind, knowing that her clothes will go to FlipSize – a company that I love for all the right reasons. Not only will they send you a HUGE bag (big enough to hold up to 100+ items) to send your clothes in, but they will also reward you with Gift Cards to their own site (for shopping) and other favorite stores.
Here is how their NEW Gift Card program works…once you send in your Gently Used and New clothing (size 12 months and up, which must meet their No-Dud Standards), you will earn Points. Those points are used to purchase Gift Cards, including ones to FlipSize, so that you can purchase clothing. Currently, these are the stores that they offer:
FlipSize (You get an extra 10% off):
10 Points = $5 Gift Card; 180 Points = $10 GC; 450 Points = $25 GC; 900 Points = $50 GC; 1800 Points = $100 GC
Amazon, Babies R Us/Toys R Us, Kohl’s, Massage Envy & Target :
100 Points = $5 Gift Card; 200 Points = $10 GC; 500 Points = $25 GC; 1000 Points = $50 GC; 2000 Points = $100 GC
Please note: These prices/point increments may change next month with the launch of their new site!
With the points I earned, I decided to get an Amazon Gift Card and I also purchased some cute clothes for my girls this Fall with a $25 FlipSize GC. I was able to get 5 shirts, 1 pair of jeans, and a pair of shoes. Amazing!! Here is a pic of my daughter and I opening our box:
Since becoming a member last year, and being apart of their incredible transformation, I can honestly say that this is a company you can trust. You can join for FREE, and find both new and gently used clothing for your children to enjoy all year long.
Their site is always open 24 hours/7 days a week, and allows you to save so much money! If this isn’t frugal fabulous shopping, I don’t know what is! Everyone deserves to save money, and this is a site I would recommend for any family member (think grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.). Your children and your wallet will thank you in the long run – and the benefits will be so incredible when it comes to shopping for the holidays and upcoming seasons ahead!
