We are all becoming ever familiar with online shops that are member exclusive. Especially those where you can join regardless of who you are, you just have to go through a pesky registration process. Well, one online shop is taking that marketing strategy, but adding in their own little twist. SneakPeeq is a new website where each day you get around 20 or so “peeqs” that let you peek at the price of the item you are interested in. You earn badges and in effect cool deals along the way. Get this, for signing up you get $10 + a free welcome gift that is a nice little ring. Now, I’m a guy, so I felt a little left out with the welcome gift, but I signed up for it anyway to test and see if it was in fact 100% free as a welcome gift, and in fact it was. Already got the ring in the mail, have no use for it, but if I may make one suggestion to them, add a welcome gift that works for guys or girls or an option for something else for guys. Regardless, it is free, even shipping. I also found that when you go to place your first order and use your $10 credit, you can do a quick option to post to Facebook and you will also get free shipping. I got a Bamboo Bottle that cost around $20+ for literally $4 after my credit, free shipping, and a discount for liking their Facebook page. So if you’re looking for some amazing items, on an affordable budget, check out SneakPeeq!
A used pink bathrobe, a rare mint snowglobe, a Smurf T.V. tray. These are things that can be found in Weird Al Yankovick’s parody-song “Ebay” and on yardsellr.com. This site is much like Ebay, a user-friendly website where one’s junk can be bought and sold. The main difference in the websites would be the style in which products are organized. Items on Yardsellr are more specifically organized. For example, search “Dolls and Bears” on Ebay, you find a variety of different Barbie dolls as well as baby dolls, American Girl dolls, and a choice of stuffed bears. Looking on Yardsellr, you can find Barbie dolls in their own “block” and stuffed animals in their own according to what kind you’re looking for. Also Yardsellr is social network-oriented. You can get to know a seller in a more personal sense by clicking under the “Meet the Seller” box. There you have the option of finding the seller on Facebook, or sending them a private message. When obtaining your purchase, you sometimes have the option of meeting the seller face-to-face to receive your item.
Yardsellr.com has the atmosphere of yard sale shopping in your own neighborhood. This website can make an interesting networking outlet for avid collectors. Pursue your passions online for a reasonable price and get to know the kindred spirits selling them. Looking for another pet rock, an Alf alarm clock, or Shatner’s old toupee? Find them on Yardsellr.com!
