Haggle Your Way to the Best Deal of Your Life

Haggle Your Way to the Best Deal of Your Life

Have you ever looked on an e-commerce website such as Amazon or Esty and wished that you could just get that novelty Star Wars mug for just a little cheaper? Maybe that pair of goulashes are a little out of your price range?  At Barters Closet, those prices are negotiable. If you see something that you just have to have but it’s a bit spendy, you can take advantage of the power of OBO (Or Best Offer).  Bring out your traditional Mexican merchant side and commence in a duel of haggling with that guy with the cool guitar. 

If they don’t like your initial offer, have no fear! They can send you a counter offer and you can fight to the deal.  Regardless of working for this company, as a consumer that doesn’t really have much money (College takes all of my money), this site is a wonderful way to get good things from likeminded people for great prices. With a hint of the Craigslist vibe without the sketchy deals in an old Circuit City parking lot, you can negotiate prices from home and get your purchased item a few days later in the mail like its Christmas.  Who doesn’t like the giddy feeling of getting a big old package at the door with your name on it? I know I love it.

I am the Haggle advocate here at Barters Closet because I see it as the best thing for getting good deals. If you could negotiate prices of items everywhere, I’d have a closet full of stuff just because I am a haggle master. And if you get on the site and start bartering, buying, selling, and haggling with us and your friends and family, you will be too.  Never be too timid to try to get a better deal. We make it easy on So check us out, tell everyone you know, and get haggling my friends!

Limelyte's Icebucket Challenge

You've probably heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by now. Well I was challenged to it by Marcus Ford and I don't currently have $100 dollars to donate to the cause so I took a bucket of ice water to the head , and I passed the challenge onto  Rob Martinson, Michael Williams and Andy Brunsch.

Rob had a great idea for his #IceBucketChallenge and so we decided to help him out with producing the video, let us know what you think of Limelyte's Ice Bucket Challenge in the comments below.

Thursday, August 7, 2014 Salesman Video

Today we had a lot of fun filming this video in the style of a classic carsalesman video. Though, Max had me reshoot the scene where I'm running in around like six times and by the end I was near death in panting because it was really hot out and I was wearing a dark sportscoat. Thankfully we were near a church so I ran in and got a drink from the water fountain. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it.
