Yahoo Finance and Swap.com

Swap.com Featured on Yahoo! Finance

On December 3, Swap.com was featured on Yahoo! Finance, as a great way to save hundreds of dollars shopping fro kids’ clothes.

Jeanie Ahn, a producer at Yahoo!, was able to find and build a wardrobe for her son for less than $100.  Her purchases included well-known brands such as J.Crew and Puma, all for about $5 per item.  That’s a savings of over 80%!  

For high quality, gently-worn clothes, the pricing can’t be beat.  Ms. Ahn suggested shopping a size above what you immediately need, to give your children room to grow.  She praised the convenience and selection on the website, as well as the fact our prices are lower than ThredUp.
