ThredUP operates an online thrift shop. Although it doesn’t give away clothes, when you purchase one of their heavily discounted items, you will earn points ($1 = 1 Point) which can be used to get standard shipping free of charge, waived restocking fees and credit as well as other rewards.

ThredUp’s advantage is its ability to cater to a broad range of customers, including women’s and men’s clothing. You can also find plus-sized, maternity, accessories and shoes.

Many brands offer loyalty programs, similar to referral points. These programs encourage customers to purchase more. You can earn points every time you shop at their store. These points could be used to redeem for free clothes in the near future. This is demonstrated by the Kohl’s Rewards and Nordstrom’s reward programs .

These methods are legal and allow you to convert rewards, points or cashback into cash. Many people have received money by simply shopping on a certain app, answering surveys and referring customers to certain stores.

4 Ways Of Getting Free Clothes By Mail

These three options will suit you if you don’t want cashback or rewards but still prefer brand-new clothes.

Become A Fashion Authority

This is a long-term strategy. You can promote an Instagram account or start a fashion blog if you are a good writer with a sense of style and great social media skills.

Brands will soon notice your online space, whether it’s social media or your website, and will send you clothes by mail. Most companies only want to see the review and the publicity that it brings.

Watch Out For T-Shirt Giveaways Online

Follow apparel companies on Instagram and join giveaways. You’ll be amazed at how fashion brands, big and small, use giveaways to promote their clothes. You can also use the subreddits Freebies or Giveaways if you have trouble finding brands.

Become A Product Tester To Get Free Clothes

Sometimes, companies need the assistance of regular consumers to test new products. You can get clothes for free (and you can wear them for weeks, months, or keep them for yourself), by signing up for product testing programs such as those offered by Under Armour and Nike, Glamorise or Carhartt.

Ask Top Brands For Free Clothes

Sometimes all you have to do is ask and you will receive. You can think of several companies you would like to receive freebies from. Then, head to their websites. There is usually a contact page.

Tell them how much you love their products and how long you have been using them. Then, ask them if you would like to be sent clothes or other swag by them as a loyal customer. You can be as specific as possible. If the form does not ask for it, include your shipping address.

You never know what you may get. The best case scenario is you will get what you want. You might get coupons or free shipping for your next order even if you don’t.
