Macy’s partners with thredUP to help you clean out your closet for spring. Sometimes it just takes a little incentive to get rid of those pieces that have been taking up space for too long, and what better incentive than giving the clothes you once loved to someone who can use them and receiving a free gift card? It’s easier than you think and you’ll be amazed at how many empty plastic hangers you have. I actually counted mine after cleaning out my closet and had twenty three. That’s twenty three less items to weigh down my hanging bar, take up much-needed space, and sit for yet another season with little chance of being worn.
Here’s how it works: If you have gently used or like-new items in your closet, order a clean out kit from thredUP. Any items that are not suitable for resale will be donated to thrift shores or charities. If you choose to have Return Assurance, a $12.99 shipping and handling fee will be deducted from the value of the items you send in. When your kit arrives, fill up the bag with high-quality women’s and kids’ clothing, handbags and shoes. Drop it off at your local USPS, FedEx, or leave it at your door for your postal carrier; postage is free. thredUP will go through the items you send and decide what they can use and what will be recycled or donated. Based on the value of the items that are accepted, you’ll receive Macy’s gift cards. It’s a win, win situation. Your closet is free of things that are taking up space, shipping is free and there’s a good chance you’ll get a Macy’s gift card. It couldn’t be simpler!
Things that thredUP accepts and you might want to put in your bag are women’s, kids,’ and baby clothes, clean, freshly laundered, mint condition and gently used items and pieces that are less than five years old. thredUP will not accept items with missing labels, undisclosed or unknown brands, men’s apparel, formal gowns, furs and specialty items, and any items that are stained, pilling, ripped, faded or showing signs of wear. If you consign locally at Roundabouts Consignment, the items they are looking for are pretty much the same.
