What is Listia?
Listia is an online marketplace where you win other people’s stuff using credits instead of money.
When you join Listia, you get 500 credits. You earn more credits every time you list an item and other users bid on it. Then you can use your credits to buy cool things other people are giving away.
The highest bidder wins, so each item goes to the person who wants it most! Getting more credits is easy, fun and most importantly, costs nothing!
I can honestly say this site saved me a few Christmases ago. I was low on money to get my children gifts for Christmas and I did not know what I was going to do. I found Listia and I listed things that I had around the house that I was not using like clothes, DVDs, games, coke codes and some other things. I build up my credits and I used them on auctions that included thing my children would enjoy for Christmas and even gift cards so that I could go out and buy them things that were not listed. Many of the items listed on Listia are new, they do not only have used items which is great. I absolutely love this site!
