I know some find good things at goodwill or like for cheap that are nice and sell for more on Ebay or like places. I'm shopkicking (app) & A points site for coupons, surveys & like( swag type of site but diffefent name) plus selling off my girl things as my last is boy. If I had facebook I would do more apps. I see things off craigslist sometimes cheap or free & buy / sell that on better venue. Good luck.

Some depends on how much work u want to do for it. Some don't give u much for surveys (done it) as I didnt fit rescreen or what not or u pay get few $. Couldn't get to review music as it .never let me send it in after I typed my review.

Lots of different points sites. mine I use that's not swag, swag on swag threads go google & find one u like/ research.

Re: Flipping Clothes?

I think there are a bunch of people in my town that do it. One thrift store has a certain color of tags for $1 starting Monday morning. Their carts are loaded every week! I would see if there were any deals like that around, even if you had to drive a little it could still be worth it.

Re: Flipping Clothes?

After paying for shipping, Ebay fees, and Paypal fees, I would think you would need to have some sort of source for higher end clothes at low prices in order to make it worthwhile. But if you are willing to put in the time required, you could probably make some money at it.

Not really, I shop goodwill and 2 local thrift stores and do ebay, so no secret source here. I've made almost $2700 in the last month. It takes time of course but I suggest reading blogs about ebay. That was a huge help for more. Huge! Because to you'll find out about things you never would have thought of that sell well. I sell such random things, it's funny sometimes actually.

Which blogs do you read? I'm thinking of starting to do this too, but I've had mixed luck on ebay. Our Goodwill has $1 tag days on Sundays, so that's when I go deal hunting.

Wow. that is awesome! I used to sell a lot, but never did that well on clothes. Is that profit after ebay and paypal fees, income taxes, etc? Maybe I should try again!
