Last week my post about the Spartan Race included a free entry into a race. In order to be eligible for the free entry, I asked readers to tell me why they loved running or loved adventure races. It was a lot harder to decide that I thought since I loved everyone’s comment. I’m happy to announce that after careful deliberation, William W is the winner of the free race entry! He got me with his amazing weight loss accomplishment. I’m always inspired by people who have overcome struggles and go on to help other people. Congratulations William! I hope you continue to be an inspiration to others. Please email me at email@example.com to claim your free entry!
You’ll also recall that a couple of weeks ago I posted about a great company called Twice. I had a very positive experience using Twice and would recommend it to anyone looking to make a few bucks off of clothes they no longer want/need. Now, in that same posted I mentioned that I was also trying out another site, ThreadUp since they accepted a few more brands than Twice did. I received my offer from ThreadUp a couple of weeks ago and it was a measly $37.00. I was so disappointed by this offer, that I decided I would rather have my items back than accept it (I sent three pairs of practically “like new” jeans for goodness sakes). I couldn’t figure out how to “reject” their offer so I emailed customer service. I found out that I had to pay $12.95 up front in order to have even the option to get my items back. The return process through Twice is completely different. First it’s only $4.95 and you get to see your offer before you have to make the payment should you want to have the items returned. Not to mention that paying the $12.95 up front was completely unclear when I requested my bag from them. If I would have known that, I probably wouldn’t have used them at all.
