After many failed attempts to repurpose old sweaters into segway fuel or oversized gerbil wedding dresses, it was finally determined that the only viable way to recycle clothing is simply to wear the clothes again. Continue the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of gently used designer apparel at Uptown Cheapskate.

Uptown Cheapskate buys and sells designer clothing at discounted prices to outfit budget-conscious customers in popular brands such as Abercrombie, Aeropostale, and True Religion. Unlike haggling over the value of a car or your younger sibling's used pacifiers, Uptown Cheapskate employs a fast, simple, software-based process to determine a fair value based on an item's condition, popularity, and SAT score. Prices for brand-names women's jeans rarely top $20, and many shirts, such as Abercrombie or Monarchy tees ($7–$16), can be nabbed for a fraction of their original costs. Shoes typically sticker between $7–$12, whereas dress pants from brands such as Express start at $10, and can be complemented by an array of unique accessories for both men and women.

Customers looking to free up some closet space for new items are free to use their Groupons on top of a trade-in and can return any purchases within 14 days for exchange value, as long as the clothing still has its tags and the same number of teeth that it left with.


Seven Google Mappers give Uptown Cheapskate an average of 3.5 stars. More than 500 Facebookers are fans of the resale store.

  • I've purchased tons of clothes from Uptown because I can get so much more for my money. Its great because the selection is way better than any thrift store and I can get brand names for a great price. – Janessa, Google Maps

Uptown Cheapskate

Uptown Cheapskate's mission is to help teens and young adults find on-trend looks for less than they'd spend at the mall. Backed by a team of stylists identifying seasonal styles, each location's staff pays cash for like-new pieces. Then, shoppers can indulge in current looks such as ombre tops, patterned jeans, and Air Force–inspired men's bomber jackets without smashing open heirloom piggy banks.

Some customers stop by to permanently stock their wardrobes. Others "upcycle" their wardrobe to keep it fresh for new seasons by opting for store credit—and earning 25% more than they would have if they had opted for cash.

This Groupon got me there to explore Uptown Cheapskate and check it out. I'll definitely be going back (even without a Groupon) to shop more. Great store!
