Higgle: Pinterest Meets Priceline

Fashionistas, do I have a treat for you!  If you've been following this blog for a while, you know I love a good deal.  I mean my favorite place to hang out is the Target clearance section #sadbuttrue.  So I was super excited when I discovered Higgle, which is a fun new way to shop and get great deals.  If you haven't heard of Higgle yet, it's a social shopping experience, kind of like a hybrid of Pinterest and Priceline.  It has the browsing features of Pinterest, with the name your own price of Priceline.

There are two ways to shop:
1:  Browse the inventory ranging from "Gourmet", "Babies & Kids", "Fashion", and "Home"and join a "higgle" that was created by another user
2:  Make an offer on something, therefore creating your own "higgle", and share across your social networks 

Now you are probably wondering what a higgle is.  A higgle is an offer you make on a product you want to buy.  There is a big incentive for social sharing with Higgle.  Based on your offer, Higgle will let you know how many others need to join in order to get your offer accepted.  You are encouraged to share your higgle across your social networks in order to get more people to join in, but the best part of Higgle is that it's a social shopping network of other buyers - so they'll share your higgle with other buyers who would also be interested.  The more people who join, the more likely your offer is to get accepted.

My first higgle is on the gorgeous cobalt blue bag below.  Based on the MSRP of $105, I thought $60 was a fair offer, or higgle, to put in.  On the right hand side you can see that if 7 more people join my higgle, I'll have a better chance at getting my offer accepted.  Think this vegan leather cobalt blue bag is rad?  Join my higgle here


As an added bonus any higgle that is “won” or “counteroffer accepted” through September 30, will receive an additional 10% off the final purchase price (credited after sale).  So what are you waiting for?  Sign up for Higgle here, and start sharing across your networks!

 
Thank you Higgle for sponsoring this post.  As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
