allstar1_052715(kimmie321) I’ve been a member of Listia for over 4 years.  I check into Listia first thing every morning. I love browsing through all the auctions, seeing and finding items I cannot find where I live. When the holidays are coming up or I have someone’s birthday, I now go to Listia first. I know I can always find that perfect gift. I often find myself when out shopping looking for new and interesting items to post on Listia. I love the idea of being able to give away items that will help others on here.  For me, Listia started out as a hobby but has become so much more for me as time went by. I’m always thinking about how to list my items to make them more fun for everyone. I love this site and have meet wonderful new friends I would not have gotten to know without it.

allstar2_052715(andreahartbengyel) My husband told me about Listia and that I should check it out. I joined a year ago just out of curiosity. I soon found out how much fun it was to win items! I was doing a lot of surveys to earn credits to buy crafts and clothes for the kids. Then one day, I thought, why not list stuff for credits instead of doing all these offers. I was hooked to selling on Listia in no time! Last year, I had to quit my job  but Listia has really been my outlet and kept me busy from getting depressed. I have worked all my life and it was a very hard adjustment. I love all the positive feedback I have gotten on here. It makes me feel appreciated and happy to read all the awesome stuff people say. I take Listia very seriously and hope to be around many more years.

allstar3_052715(mandykeller1004) I’ve only been on Listia for a few months now and stumbled upon it by chance. I was skeptical at first but when I won my first auction and the seller contacted me right away, I was so intrigued. A few days went by and I actually received my item in the mail and it was from that point on that I’ve been addicted to Listia. As a single mother it has been a life saver when I needed it the very most! My children’s entire Easter (besides the little bit of candy of course) was from Listia! My heart was so full and happy as I put their Easter baskets together Saturday night before heading to bed. I just stood there and stared at them for a moment because I just couldn’t believe it. I’ve also recently moved into my first home where I can actually plant flowers and plants like I’ve always dreamt about.  Through Listia, I have not only won 15 or more types of flowers my children and I can plant here very soon but I’ve also adopted my 6 new house plants that I absolutely love : ) I’ve been blessed to meet many of amazing new friends that I’d never have the chance to meet if it weren’t for my Listia. Keep it up!


  1. I am getting upset you keep banning me when i only have one account on your site.. I have been bidding on stuff and you banning me. I want my account back.. I am losing my bidding. you took my daughter off when my mother took it over. I have been trying to make a new one and you banned me.. Why are you doing this to me? Let me have my account back please…

  2. I made a good friend on listia we r now friends on face book have been for almost 3 yrs now we met after she bid on a set of silver napkin rings at that time I was not offering free shipping n she couldn’t afford to pay shipping so I contacted her n told her if she wanted them I would pay for the shipping n she accepted my offer then thanked me n we became fast friends

  3. I’d like to know how does one start a new blog article on here? i have made some friends on listia. my problem with the site currently is their apparent lack of concern for those people that actually “play their game” and put in for shipping. when i joined 2.5 years ago maximum buy in was at 400creds/1$… not it is 2137creds/1$. so what gives? why are they super inflating their own market thus killing us proper seller that do put up the shipping $ rather than do surveys for credits. also i ahve noticed there are violators on listia that have purchased 100’s of auctions without getting rid of one single thing… which leads to two options either they spent a ton of $ to get credits or they found a way to abuse the system and truly get free s**t….. i’d like to start a discussion among the listia users about this hyper inflation we been experiencing last 4 months… credit values went from 1245/$ to over 3500/$.. it’s becoming preposterous!!!! thus instead of saving credits up to buy something nice.. those of us with two brain cells realize we gotta spend credits as fast as we make them. really lame!!!!
