14 $50 Amazon GC Giveaway from OfferUp Ends 10-18

Every year, I give myself a news year resolution to get more organized and rid my house of clutter. It's always such a hassle to go through the sites to sell things online. Because of that, I start getting things piling up, especially clothes and toys that the kids have outgrown. It'll creep up on you and before you know it, there's tons of stuff that you want to get rid of.
I've been introduced to a new Apple App called OfferUp. Because I don't have any I-products, I can't use it and wish I had an iPhone, but if you do have one, you should check it out. With this app, you simply take a picture of the item you are wanting to sell and post it up for sale. Through the app, others can contact you to buy it. There are safety measures in place to maintain anonymity, if you'd like your information protected and it looks so simple to use.

Here is some info from the company to tell you a little more about it.

With a focus on making selling as simple as snapping a picture, OfferUp is a mobile marketplace that makes it simple for busy families to quickly buy and sell gently-used items in a safe and hassle-free environment. OfferUp combines the best elements of existing online marketplaces – buyers can get good deals from sellers looking to turn unused items into cash – with a new mobile approach focused on personal safety.

  • OfferUp’s “Snap and Tap” iPhone mobile app snaps a picture and posts gently-used items for sale in under one minute.
  • Items are immediately posted to OfferUp’s mobile marketplace and website without ever needing to connect to a PC.
  • Sellers have the option to easily share the listing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or send an email to individuals or groups.
  • OfferUp TruYouƤ member program lets both buyers and sellers provide information that validates their identities.  
  • In-app private messaging keeps identities completely anonymous until buyers and sellers decide to share private information.
  • OfferUp’s photo-based shopping interface makes it easy for potential buyers to discover nearby deals that are relevant to their interests and lifestyle.
  • OfferUp informs people of how quickly a person responds – anywhere from within an hour to more than 48 hours. 

Get the iPhone app!

OfferUp has offered to give away a $50 Gift Card to one of my readers just for trying out this app from the App Store. (It's free to download) Sorry, only for Apple products.

Disclaimer: I was not provided any compensation for this post. I wanted to share because I think this app looks awesome.OfferUp is awesome for allowing the giveaway also.


  1. It is a cool app but I dont think I could keep up on it...

  2. I have a lot of things that I need to post for sale and a lot that I have posted. This will make it easier. Thanks!

  3. It looks pretty cool, I will have to play around with it for a bit.

  4. Looks interesting and seems to be easy to use, which is paramount. I noticed it's not available for iPad which is certainly less convenient, but I'd bet they're developing that. We are currently preparing for a big move and will have lots of furniture and household goods to sell. It will be very handy to have OfferUp to help!

  6. It looks really cool. It reminds me of Craigslist.

  7. This works great for posting on Craigslist!

  8. This might be a great alternative to Craigslist!!

  9. It another avenue to sell things you are trying to get rid of. The navigation is a little strange for me maybe I'm just not used to it.

  10. I like that it's free. I have downloaded it on my iPod Touch. I am not sure if I will use it a lot as I don't sell much stuff online
