Hey guys! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I have. It may be the first time in history that actually have gifts in hand before Thanksgiving. I feel like I have to start earlier because the time just seems to fly by. I’m afraid I’ll wake up tomorrow and it will be New Year’s Day. Yikes!
I’m such a fan of online shopping. If I can avoid having to deal with crowds, traffic, parking, spilt coffee (I always end up spilling something) then I will. Plus, if you can get free shipping, it’s actually cheaper to shop online. No spending on gas, wear and tear on your car, no stops at the coffee shops.
Well, my friends, let me introduce you to Higgle. Higgle is a name-your-own price marketplace, where shoppers can discover amazing products, name their price, get others to join in, and buy amazing stuff, all in one place. The name Higgle is a play on the word “haggle,” except you don’t have to haggle with merchants, because Higgle does it for you.
How it works – Basically you see an item you want. The MSRP is listed and you type in a price that you would like to pay for it. It it’s too low, Higgle will tell you to be fair. If your offer is reasonable then there’s a three-day window to get others to join. Higgle will share it with other people on their site and you can share it with your social network (if you want). If enough people join, the deal is done and everyone wins. If not, everyone will get a counteroffer from the merchant and you can accept individually.
I tried it – So I tried my own Higgle. I found an item (not telling what, since the recipient is most likely reading this) and made an offer. At first I lowballed it and was told to be fair. Okay, so I put in a higher number, that was still a good price. At that point my offer was accepted, and I waited. I did not share on social networks, because the recipient would see it. A couple days later, I received an email that my offer was accepted. Yay! Did I mention that shipping is free?!
Here are a few of my favorite things from Higgle’s Holiday Gift Guide…
Cute, right?! I highly suggest checking Higgle out. And if you want an even better deal use this promo code for 10% off: 2fb339. The promo code is valid through December 10, 2014.
Check it out and then let me know what you want. Maybe I’ll just join in and Higgle with you!
