allstar1_121114(shelleyndennison) 2013 was a very hard year for my husband and I. I thought for sure Christmas gifts were out of the question for our four sons. But thanks to this wonderful site, I managed to purchase gifts for all of my sons for a total of $31. This would have never been possible had Listia not be here. My boys got top-of-the-line electronics, video games, toys, and name brand clothing. They were so happy and had a great time. I have not seen my boys that happy in a while. And I have already started shopping for Christmas 2014. That is because Listia made Christmas 2013 so great.  Thanks to Listia, I have been able to buy items I could not afford even when I was working. This site is great!

allstar2_121114(ILUVBLS) I have been a member of Listia since 2011. I have loved this site ever since joining. It is great to be able to clean out the things that I can no longer use. This year, I set myself a goal to earn a certain amount in gift cards to do my Christmas shopping with. I’m glad to say I met my goal and then even exceeded it. It’s so awesome not to have those after-Christmas credit card bills come in! I also enjoy all the great people that I have met through the years. This site is such a great idea! I can’t wait to see what the upcoming years will bring! Thank you Listia for all that you do!

10517456_780685028692460_884303511654289391_n(cherishginn) I joined this site a few years back when my best friend told me about it. Like most people, I was like “it can’t be that easy: Just sell things, get credits”… but it was and I have been hooked ever since! I have been looking high and low for three Christmas gifts for the kids and the man this year. The games my sons wanted were crazy expensive. One day out of the blue there they were on Listia: Assassin’s Creed and Harvest Moon for the DS! I was so happy I won them and even made new friends. The 3rd gift was a great find by an amazing seller. I had been looking for Grease 2 for my daughter.… I could keep going on and on, but in the end: to the people that came up with this site, I am sure all the low income families like mine are so grateful. A big thank you!

  4. just a little Listia Pun Humor:
    * I’d just won an auction for a fan, but the page said I already had 50 fans! (smartypants.. how did they even know that? 🙂
    * So then I was looking this watch, and clicked to save it… and the page says I added it to my watch list. (cute! 🙂

    • 4 ways to drive a Listian nuts:
      *Win an auction & never verify your address for it, nor reply to any of the sellers emails.
      *Win an auction & click that you do not want it shipped, and never reply to the sellers emails.
      *Win an auction, and give an incomplete or incorrect address, and when it gets Returned To the Sender, never reply to the sellers emails.
      *Sell something, and never mark it shipped, nor communicate with the buyer, so they keep wondering if they’ll ever really see it.

    just wanted to say thank you to customer support for helping me. There is no way to say thanks so im doing it here. bratevaro

  6. Your customer service is a joke. You keep sending automated responses to a dispute request. “Listia Kim” is a joke. Is there a real person behind the “Listia Kim” name??? I have not received an item after 14 days and submitted a request. An administrator has been assigned. I contacted listia using multiple “dispute” requests. This is the auction site.
