The other day I asked on Facebook where to buy a laptop bag. One of the comments was to search on Higgle. The funny thing is that this post was already in the works before that comment and now it’s all coming together!
Part of my ‘job’ as a blogger is to share awesome finds with my readers. Because I don’t know about you but it’s always fun to discover new things and I know I always prefer recommendations before searching on my own. So I wanted to share with you guys about Higgle – a new way to shop!
Here’s how it works. Higgle is a social marketplace where you can buy everything you see at prices you and the Higgle community set. You see something you like and it has a suggested price. You can then name your own price that you think you can swing and it will tell you how many people need to join that ‘higgle’ for you to get that price. Let me show you an example.
It was love at first site with this necklace. So beautiful. I love big necklaces and all my statement necklaces got stolen on our last trip moving to France. Now that I’ve seen something I like and I see the price it normally sells for (the $26) and all the deets. When you start to enter your offer there will be a little note off to the side telling you how many people would need to join for you to get that necklace at that price. I felt like $18 was reasonable and I think 3 people need to join for me to get it.
The Higgle is open for 3 days for others to join. They give you a specific link for you to use and share so that others can join the Higgle and you’ll all get the same great offer! If you agree with me and think this necklace is gorgeous, click on over & join the Higgle with me! You can sign up through Facebook or create an account, it’s very easy. And you get the idea, you share and then your friends share and then more and more people get awesome deals. Everyone wins!
I also really want that necklace, so Higgle for me!
Here is another beautiful necklace I wanted. It’s a little more expensive, but I bid a little higher. If you’d like to join this Higgle with me & grab this necklace for $20, come on! Who doesn’t need another big necklace? 😉
This is what Higgle looks like on the home screen. You can browse categories, Higgles that are already going on so you can just join then if you want. Like that bag to the top right, I think I want it!
I also think it’s really cool that Higgle was Founded by CEO Lara Aldag, a female tech entrepreneur, which is really rare in that realm. After just getting back from BlogHer and seeing how important it is to support one another, I think this is great. Women can do amazing things and sometimes we just have a few more obstacles to deal with.
