Have you heard of Copious? I found the site a couple of months ago and have gotten 4 orders so far :) Copious is a site where people sell their stuff, kinda like an Ebay/Etsy combo.
Some stuff is brand new, some is gently used, some is handmade, etc. You sign up either using Facebook or Twitter, you get a $10 credit when you sign up and if you use a referral link, the person who referred you will get a $5 credit the first time you make a purchase. Here is my referral link: http://copious.com/invites/50023d268451e052fb0001bf
There are tons of things for $10 or less and many include free shipping! You do have to spend a penny ($0.01), so you can find something that costs $10.01, pay $0.01 of your own money and use your $10 credit. I have used 2 different credit cards and had no issues whatsoever.
The site can be overwhelming when you first start searching for stuff, but it get easy, you can click on a little heart icon for items you "love" and you can follow people and see things they love! The more I use it, the easier it gets and I find better and better deals.
They also issue random credits, I have gotten three $10 credits, one in June "to beat the Monday blues", and 2 in July "Friday the 13th weekend" and some other random weekend credit on 7/20/2012.
I have pictures of everything I have gotten and using my credits, all together I have spent $2.88, that's it!!! Check it out:
I used my first credit to get handmade elastic hair ties and headbands, they are adorable and look at the packaging!!!
Using my first $10 credit I got 3 elastic headbands for $0.87 and 10 elastic hair ties for $0.01 (I got 4 hair ties free, two per order)
With my second $10 credit I got Nail Polish from 2 different sellers! Perfectly wrapped!
KleanColor Pinky Moon #30, I paid $0.01
The other polish I got was also wrapped nicely!
KleanColor Blind Date #195, I paid $1.91
With my third $10 credit I got MORE NAIL POLISH!!! hahaha are you surprised? This time I did better, I found two I liked from the same vendor and with free shipping :)
KleanColor - Red Hot #189 ($0.01) & Afternoon Picnic #194 ($0.07)
