Well, here my review on Listia as promised. My curious nature brought me to this site via an ad on Facebook saying get free Magic cards, and because I have an eBay store that sells Magic cards I thought that free stuff sounds pretty good, especially if it has some value to it and I can resell it on eBay. I will say that things worked out pretty well.
Listia is an online auction site, but instead of paying with money you pay with credits and some of the things on there are pretty darn good. You can spend money to buy credits, but it’s ridiculously expensive and silly to do so unless you are absolutely certain that you’ll get your money back via product value. Alright, I wasn’t completely telling the truth when I said you don’t pay money, some auctions require you pay shipping with real dollars, but other than that there really isn’t much else you need money for in this site.
Much like eBay, every type of product you can think of goes up here. Collectibles? Yep. Computer parts? Yep. Cameras? Yep. Even books and clothing and a dozen other categories of stuff with… subcategories! Not only that, but you can get the stuff for pretty much free. Free is good, right?
If you want to add credits to your account you can do quite a few things. One is spend money to buy them there credits. Another is list your own stuff that you don’t want to have anymore and in a few days after somebody wins the auction your credits will come to you. You can also complete surveys and offers of the free kind and the paid kind and get a varying amount of credits per choice. There are also little goals here and there that can give you 10-15 credits if you complete them. Also inviting a friend that then completes an auction gives you 500 credits and them 100 plus the starting amount when they join.
