How to Get Free Clothes Online

Want the look of high fashion without selling a kidney? Need new school clothes for the kids but can't find the extra money in your budget? No matter what you're looking for, no matter what time of year it is, you can get free clothe online.

Use these tips to score the best deals and discounts. 100% off is as good as it gets!

What Type of Clothes Can You Get for Nothing?

  • T-shirts
  • Jeans
  • Shorts
  • Shoes
  • Sandals
  • Dresses
  • Skirts
  • Swimsuits
  • Sweaters
  • Hoodies
  • Jackets
  • Coats
  • Shirts
  • Pants
  • Costumes

Craigslist:


Pros: Every major city in the United States has a Craiglist site packed with free stuff. You can find ads for people cleaning out their closets, giving away items after garage sales, or moving and needing to get rid of clothes fast. You can even find ads for designer labels if you're lucky.

Cons: If you score a great deal, you'll need to meet the seller and pick up the merchandise. Never meet at your home or theirs; use a safe place like a coffee shop or even a police station to make your trade. Go with a friend and stay in well-lit areas. Also keep in mind that plenty of women and men have been scammed on Craigslist. Be ready to show up and wait for someone who is never coming.

Freecycle:

Pros: Every item that you claim keeps something from going into the garbage. Because Freecycle is only open to approved members, they have lower fraud rates than anonymous buy/sell websites. You can also find higher quality clothes, baby clothes, and shoes because the site operates as a community.

Cons: Free clothes go quickly -- the best goods will be gone before you can hit reply. You also need to apply for (and obtain) membership before you can ever post an advertisement or reply to a seller. If you take a lot of items without giving away your own household goods, prepare to get banned.

Get Free Gift Cards Online:

Pros: Sponsors pay to advertise products so that you can get them for nothing. You can find designer clothes from Gucci, shoes from Prada, and gift cards to major retailers. Look for dollar amounts ranging from $200 to $1,000.

Cons: You must be willing to look at sponsor offers before you can qualify for free clothes online. Most of the time you complete a short survey so the sponsor knows what interests you and then you are shown ads for products you might like. Women's clothing, men's clothing, and children's clothing typically ship four to six weeks after you participate in the deal and qualify.

Local Charity Websites:

Pros: Almost every community has an agency that helps people who need clothes for kids, women, and men. You can find items donated from local retailers, gently used clothes, and barely used clothes, especially for babies.

Cons: Websites are frequently outdated because charities do not have the staff to keep the inventory current. Many sites show free clothes online, but then you must go to a pick-up location or store to complete the transaction. Selection is limited, and many goods are from the previous season (winter clothes in summer, swimsuits in fall, etc.).
