7 Major Online Stores That Sell Used Items

Buying used clothing, electronics and other items has a lot of appeal. It can save you money and lessen your impact on the environment. However, the idea of visiting a thrift store and sifting through dusty shelves might be less appealing for many shoppers. And buying from a stranger on Craigslist or a resale app won’t offer you protection (or the ability to make returns) if the goods are fraudulent or not as described.

Luckily, plenty of major retailers offer gently used items online. That means you can still get the cost-saving and environmental benefits of buying used, but shop on your own schedule, view product details at a glance and use search terms and filters rather than rummaging through physical thrift store shelves. Plus, major online retailers offer limited warranties, quality guarantees, returns and other benefits you don’t get at the thrift store or from strangers.

Here are seven major retailers that sell used goods:

  • Amazon
  • Apple
  • Best Buy
  • Dell
  • REI
  • ThredUp
  • Walmart
