What is BLINQ?

Retailers discard millions of returned and overstock products every year! An item may be returned with the tags still on it, but it is out of season or a retailer simply orders too much of an item and can’t clearance it out. These items can end up in a landfill which is a missed opportunity for you and a burden to our environment.

Instead, BLINQ now partners with top retailers to provide you with access to incredible savings on never-been-worn returned and overstock fashion. They sort through these items and pick only the best and you get the deals! 🙌


BLINQ is like thrifting for brand NEW items!

Here are a few deals you can score, but keep in mind that sizes are limited on most items.  To find items quickly for the sizes you’re shopping for, be sure to use the size selection to to the left of the products.

    Perfectly good clothing ends up in landfills instead of being donated?! What the heck??

    • Boisegal

      I doubt they’re going to a landfill. I see Target clearanced items at Goodwill all the time. I would guess from there they go to third world countries and get donated (and company probably gets a fat tax write-off). Even clothing with holes and/or rags at least gets recycled by the pound.

      • Kelly

        Stores will cut clothes and throw them away. H&M was filmed in New aYork doing this.

        • jackie esparza

          you are correct. not only clothes but alot of stuff. family dollar is known for that or they chuck into the dumpster. we had a friend who got banned from there and dollar general for taking the stuff out of the dumpster that was brand new. only one time was an item cut. otherwise some of the people here got brand new clothes .anything in retail. even did it with brand new holiday cards etc. when instead they could have taken to a school, day care a shelter. waste of money.when or if sent to other countries they jack up the prices. people here come to garage sales looking for new stuff with tags on them. and they try and get them for like a .25 when you are charging 2-3.00 for new items. we decided to take what we had left over and give to neighbors who go and travel to mexico because we know them and know the people over in Mexico will use them.

        Goodwill throws items away.

    • Morna

      I worked at Target and worked in price change for a bit. The clothes that we pulled off the floor were donated.

  2. Megann

    The thought of items going in a landfill is awful when so many are without.
    What s great site!

    • Tiff

      They don’t go to landfills. They go to liquidation like DEF Salvage.
      Then they get sold to other parties for discounted by the case or pallets.

  3. LT

    This is more like a Dirt Cheap(here in South). Dirt Cheap is a salvage store of products from mostly Target, Walmart and some from Dollar General. Another version of Ross but in more sophisticated way. Hmmmm… would love to try them in the future.

    A Target C9 jacket that I bought my son for $15 is listed at $26.99. Same price discrepancy with Women’s Pajamas, they’re nearly double the price. Also, these items are “this season”, still online, so how are they on their way to landfills already?

    • Michelle

      I thought the prices were very high myself

  5. Amanda

    Instead of being sold, the clothing should be given to people in need in the US and 3rd world countries.

  6. Roxy

    Someone wrote a book about how many clothes end up in the landfills in America every year and apparently it’s not just retailers. Consumers throw away old clothing too… so I was a little intrigued. It’s not like you can donate old underwear and tore up clothing to Goodwill, but you can’t throw it away either. I heard there are places that collect all bad clothing and ship it overseas where women use it to make rugs and other items.

    And to be more on topic, for those in the South who are not familiar with Bargain Hunt yet, look it up. Target sells all their overstock to them and I get clothes for as low as $1-$3 and even dollar spot items for like 20 cents. Ive gotten awesome finds from them.

    • mary

      query – my sons leather jacked got ripped – I can not fix it – what in the world can I do with it – don’t want to throw it out – cant donate it – what does one do now?

      • Kikisaver

        Mary, here’s what I’d do with your leather jacket…I make doll shoes and purses with upcycled leather and donate them (with clothes I sew from new fabric) to a charity that gives them to kids that have extended hospital stays. The charity gives the kiddos a new doll and several outfits to fit the doll, and a tote bag to carry everything. It helps the kiddos deal with the stress of their illness and having to be in a hospital, all through play therapy. Such a great cause!

        • Rama

          Wow! What a great way to upcycle! Bless you for your part in making these kids happy when they are sick!

  7. K

    I used to work for a very large company, that required me to be in the back stock area of Walmart once in awhile. The things that I saw in their trash was horrifying!! I don’t know why some of these companies throw things away instead of donating them??!! It’s sickening!

  8. Belle

    didn’t know you could thrift online! Thought the prices would be a tad cheaper, but I agree w/ others some of the prices do seem inflated here.

  9. AG

    For those who might be interested in learning why clothing goes to landfills, etc. watch the documentary The True Cost. It’s a heartbreaking look at what happens in the fashion and retail sectors.

  10. couponer

    So only women’s apparel items? This seems sexist and I feel triggered.

    • Chris9176

      Maybe you should scroll the site a little better instead of using buzzwords inappropriately for the situation. Men, women, and children’s clothing is available.

      • Amy

        I read that as sarcasm?? 😂

  11. smgpw

    I don’t know if they’re everywhere – but here in Missouri we have bins everywhere from our small rural town to Kansas City called “Planet Aide” and it just takes ripped up/un-donate-able clothing and textiles. Usually found in parking lots of stores. Might check their website to see if there is a bin by you.

  12. smgpw

    Promo code not working – says the code is valid for certain products only.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm, I still find code HIPBLINQ30 to work as listed above. It does apply to all Merona, Mossimo, C9 Champion and Xhilaration apparel. Hope that helps!

  13. JEB

    Thanks for info, I haven’t heard of this company.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome!

  14. Paige

    I think retailers are improving on their waste. I see tons of items from Walmart (that clearly have been returned) at my local goodwill store. I see the same, for both Walmart and target, at Dirt Cheap stores. Dirt Cheap and Bargain Hunt are my favorite stores!

  15. Karen

    You rock H2S! I love finding bargains online!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks a bunch for your kind comment Karen!! We sure do appreciate it!

  16. Erin

    I ordered a few things! Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome!

    Stores find that ‘destroying’ instead of ‘donating’ is a cheaper way of getting rid of old season or unsold merchandise. They generally rip tags in half and throw away. If you are smart enough and know the days you can ‘carefully’ go thru any garbage bins. Clothes are good, but if you get caught it IS considered stealing because the garbage bins are on store property. Anyway, they don’t want to deal with the paperwork and they get more for ‘destruction’ than they do for donating. There ARE some stores that think it is better to donate because they can handle the losses better because like Target & Walmart, they are everywhere!

    Thanks! Nice to know about a new site. Well it’s new to me. I was surprised to see a lot of electronics at decent prices.
