(kellieb77) I stumbled across Listia in Dec 2014 shortly before Christmas (I saw it mentioned on a couponing site) and I signed up so I could earn some coke rewards. That quickly changed & became so much more! I was listing stuff like DVD’s & video games my children grew out started winning stuff we need like candles, gift cards, clothes, dog items, stamps, household items, etc. Listia has helped me so much in such a short time; I only wish I had joined sooner! I have made lifelong friendships and it has been a life changing experience. I just love my Listia family. Thank you so much for helping my family, Listia. I plan on being here for a long time (hopefully forever)
(onesmileynurse) I joined Listia in May 2011 after looking for something different than the typical auction sites. I worked as a nurse for 25 years, until I was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disease. I have always been compassionate and giving. Listia has given me a way to be giving again! I love it! When I go to our post office (a small town of 1700 folks), I joke with the postmaster that it cost me more to get rid of my own stuff, because I am so giving! I always offer free shipping and generally start most of my auctions off with a very low or zero bid. I enjoy helping other people be able to get items they would like to have without it costing them so much! I love the idea of using the points for this bidding system. I think this keeps things fair and on a even keel. Since I’m not able to work, Listia also keeps me from going into depression and keeps me busy doing things, since I’m not able to do much anymore with my illness. I have also met many new great friends on Listia. In fact, I can say I have met such great friends on Listia that if I need to go to another part of the country for medical care that I would be able to do so and have places to stay without the cost of a hotel. This is how much I adore and trust these people! The friends I have met on Listia are very giving people. One of my friends even assists feeding homeless people. There are so many people on Listia with hearts of gold! I feel that many of us on Listia don’t just want to give away our unwanted items, but to see people’s dreams come true! I plan on being a friend of Listia for many years to come!
