I found out about a week ago that Fribiz
will be closing. (I'm not really sure why I'm putting the referral link in, either.) Fribiz is supposed to be closing today, but I don’t know when it will actually go down, as they have several auctions going. The site will probably close whenever they finish. I also have no idea if anything will be replacing it.
I’m going to try to get whatever else I can on Fribiz. If not, it’s no great loss. I haven’t been using the site for a while now. It was only because one of my referrals mentioned it that I knew about it. At least I won a few items on the site, which is good.
There were two auctions, both gift codes, that I wasn’t able to use. Fortunately, I was able to auction them off on another site, Listia
. I got points for the gift codes, but I was able to use the points to get something else I wanted. (For those of you that have codes you don’t want, Listia is a great way to get rid of them.)
I was able to sell off a few items on eBay, although not for much. For that reason, I decided to keep a USB pencil sharpener. I figured that I wouldn’t get that much for it new, and I have a small need for one that stays attached to something, so I decided to try it. At least I got a review
of it on what’s now Yahoo! Voices
. (The referral link seems to be here
.) Worst case scenario, I may be able to auction it off on eBay as used.
In any event, I may look for some other site similar to Fribiz. I don’t know how good it will be, but it’s worth a shot.
