allstar2_111815(jenfrancis) I am a five year veteran as both a Listia seller and buyer. I wanted to write to say how much I thoroughly enjoy using the site. Last year, I won 100,000 credits after sleuthing out puzzle pieces for the Cyber Monday Mystery. It was fun and worth it. When I solved the puzzle, I knew I was among the first! It was very early in the morning on the third day of “hunting”. I was thinking “well, maybe they will give me a special badge, or maybe a Listia T-shirt”. I can not believe I have 100,000 credits just to spend on myself.  I am a stay-at-home mom to triplets ages 6 and twins age 4 (yes, a handful). Most of my credits are won by trading their old items and getting new things for them. I now have these credits to splurge on myself! Thank you for the many years of fun and friendships.  I look forward to many more.

allstar1_111815 (wendy9165) Hi, I became a member in March of 2014. I was a single mother with two teenagers and found myself struggling around the holidays. Then I thought Listia! I got crafts and clothes for my daughter, tools and sports equipment for my son and I even got a new TV for my family! Everything was new and we had a wonderful Christmas. So this year, I am buying new toys and auctioning them off for other families! Thank you Listia … you saved Christmas!

allstar3_111815(joshuahubbard581) I’m so excited that Listia gave me the opportunity to get Christmas shopping done early. Yes, on Listia I got a Michael Kors bag & so much more! And right now, it’s time for me to enjoy my credits. I recommend Listia because it’s way better than other auction sites. I haven’t had any problems with Listia and it’s a fun and exciting atmosphere. The raffle part on Listia is a fun and exciting experience. Listia has offered me Michael Kors, Coach, Philosophy, Paul Mitchell & so much more.

  2. Better use them quick the hyper inflation is out of control.

    • hi, you got it the credits are out of control rather the one who is controlling their value,, i feel i deserve an apology from someone —i first joined last year ( cant quite remember date so guessing a yr may be more) the credit were values at 1000 = 1 dollar i was new other newbies thought wow 1000 thats a lot to bid meanwhile the experienced members knew 1000 isnt much Well everything was going far higher than i could afford so wasnt able to win anything nice I Decided to work very hard and not spend till i had enough to win i remember how excited i was when it hit 200.000 WOW Thats 200 dollars i slept like a b baby knowing i was waking up to win my first big auction oNLY That item i dreamed on wasn’t going to be mine after all OVER NIGHT They surprised us changing the value ROBBED ME Of HALF MY EARNINGS OVER NIGHT ! All sudden credits were worth 2000 = 1 dollar so my 200 became 100 in value ,my item was outbid ,people bid higher because credits worth less BUT IT DIDN’T STOP THERE THOU T SHOULD HAVE ,,
      WHY DID MY EARNINGS HAVE TO TAKE A CUT Because the values were changed shouldnt mine be worth what they were worth when i earned them BANKS DONT TAke 50 % over night and i didn’t think this was a stock market game but it went on and quickly till now , thou it fluxuates daily to make a dollar it is 5000 = 1 dollar but i earned those 200.000 credits when they were worth $200 NOT When they were worth $50 i know it be hard to accomodate everyone when values change but something should been offered when i was ROBBED BY THE SITE I CONTINUE TO LOVE 50 PERCENT OF MY EARNINGS THAT FIRST TIME 100.000 CREDITS OF MY 200K or $100 of my $200 dollars worth gone because someone changed a ratio over night ,
      ,,,, WAS IT EXTREMELY PROFITABLE THAT NIGHT ? WAS THAT THE PLAN ? AND WHY DIDNT IT TELL ME WHEN I JOINED THE VALUE OF MY CREDITS COULD DECLINE AND AT THAT RATE !!!! .
      Guess you can tell i’m not over it ( sorry this comments probably not where it should be ) EASY TO SEE IT STILL HURTS AND YES I FEEL THOU I BEEN ROBBED BY MY BANKER , It isn’t going away i accepted it ? NO Not that first take half my value 100 dollars takes a lot to earn when its done a few cents at a time ( after expenses thats all most are back then ) i know when values dropped first time in half everyone with credits should been given 50 percent more added to their accounts after that everything was fair could been a respectful move on behalf of listia OK I ACCEPT IT NOW That the values go up ( and down Haaaaa not ) but do i accept or feel less robbed that first 100 bucks NO , I Wish i could let it go ,,this is first i spoke of it in awhile and think if i dont stop ill get sick of hearing myself too , .
      THANKS FOR READING Who ever did WAS IT ALWAYS LIKE THIS OR DID IT ALL GO OUT OF CONTROL LAST YEAR WHEN THEY TOOK MINE A NEWBIES ACCOUNT 200 K AND DEVALUED IT BY 50 PERCENT , WHAT IM ASKING IS IF ID JOINED A FEW MONTHS EARLIER WOULD I HAVE STILL LOST OUT OR WOULD I HAVE HAD TIME TO SPEND WHAT I EARNED BEFORE THEY TOOK HALF VALUE ,, GEE LISTIA I JUST EARNED IT I JUST HIT THE NUMBER , MY CELEBRATION WASN’;T SUPPOSED TO BE CHOPPED THE VERY NEXT DAY ,, OK do you think YOU LISTIA SHOULD BE ADDING SOMETHING OF AN EXPLANATION TO TEACH NEW MEMBERS THAT YOUR CONTROLLING WHAT THEIR ACCOUNTS ARE WORTH AND SAVING AND SPENDING ARE A WHOLE OTHER FACTOR TO BE EXPECTED , CONSIDERED , I DONT REMEMBER SEEING ANYTHING ABOUT THAT IN THE WELCOME AD , PREDICTION PEOPLE I NEVER LEARNED TO PLAY STOCKS WHEN DO WE SAVE AND WHEN DO WE SPEND ? And am i all baby here and the company doersnt really care BECAUSE MONEY IS The Bottom Line NOT The family nicey idea of give away free get free items helping eachh other , no need for money ( besides all the SHIPPING COSTS AND blah blah ,,
      sORRY IM STOPPING I POST THIS I MAKE A FOOL OF MYSELF ,,, HMMM hmmmm ill call it post trama side affects from bank account robbery , once i post its gone back in the memory bank throw away the keys this time,,, LOVE ANY HELPFUL INSIGHT / ADVICE REGARDING THE FEW QUESTIONS ID IN THAT MESS OF WORDS LIKE When to spend and if cant trust to save for something big how can we protect it or whatever IS THERE A SAFER BANK HERE ON LISTIA THAN WHERE THEY KEEP OUR EARNED CREDITS NOW , VALUE INSURANCE HAAA DONT GIVE EM ANY MORE IDEAS —- OVER AND OUT — FORGIVE ME ANYONE WHO WAS BOTHERED BY THIS Being here taking up space HOPING SAYING IT OUTLOAD / SHARING IT ONCE WILL HELP ME GET OVER IT , I’D SAY IT’SS ONLY CREDITS IF I DIDN’T HAVE CLEAR Memories of how much time AND work AND Cost i did to get them Those Memories tell me its more than ” JUST CREDIT’S ” GOOD NIGHT ALL,,,THANKS FOR BEING GREAT LISTIANS And I Look forward to seeing you all , helping any way i can , Were in this together , it’s not all about me so again please forgive my need for this ,, hope i can delete it got feeling ill want to since only trying to get out of my head to feel less frustrated and all, Hey i been a rock ever since that experience ,that one night ,bet was worse because i was so excited night before just hitting my personal goal and all,, Wishing you ALL Great Health Wealth AND Happiness , your listia fan , friend , neighbor o x o

      • ikm not laughing but kind of,, just re read that dreadfully long messag the topic was CREDIT VALUES / CREDIT DECLINES – A Year ago values were 1000 = $1. , in the very long ( sorry again 4 that ) i just read and what i said them Dec, 1215 credit values were up to 5000 + $1. well haaaaa NOW IT’S INCREASED OR DECREASED HOW EVER YOU CHOSE TO LOOK IT THIS APRIL 2016 8049 OR 8490( last time i checked won’t know till i go onsite 8090 ( or whatever ) = $1 Thats a HUGE STRETCH From the 1000 = $1 , heck we have to get MORE THAN 50.000 CREDITS JUST TO BARELY COVER The shipping ( half the cost in some cases ) of a very small it packet =(

    Ok i had been a listia years ago. Was doing good sent my auctions had gd feedback. I loved it. I told many ppl about listia not for credits but so they can get things for there family that they couldn’t afford otherwise. It’s hard when your disabled and can’t afford things u need when your on a fix income. So I would put my auctions up send with the last penny I had to ship for free. I try to help ppl when I can. So anyways I told a lady in my apartment complex to sign up because she needed baby stuff. And she made lots of jewelry so she did and it worked out for her.one time she came over asked if she could use my computer because her cell phone was out of service. She log in her listia a count and it log me out. So when I tryed to login back in listia blocked me I lost all my credits just because I helped a friend out by letting her check her auctions on listia. I asked why they didn’t get back finally saying I have another a count on my listia. So I was mad and sad because I earned to by my disabled daughter a gift and I could now and I spent everything I had to ship. So anyways I heard listia changed and got better. I sign up agan I after two years n I am doing gd trying earn for Xmas gifts n guess what I have lots of credits. And now I can’t log in. Why? They won’t even answer me I am very upset. It’s not right what u are doing. I would like in my account barterQueen75
