Hi dear readers,
Recently I re-listed a bicycle trainer (turns a street bicycle into a stationary bicycle) on Craigslist after a couple of unsuccessful attempts at selling. I initially bought it on eBay to help me rehab my injuries. I was asking $50 less than what I had paid for it as it was still new in box, but when someone offered $75 – $100 less, I had a crazy, gleeful idea.
I told him I would make him a deal and sell it for $100 less if he wanted to, and could, make a donation to his favorite charity. He agreed! I did a little research and found shipping it to him would save him money and time, more money that could go to charity, so I shipped it yesterday, and he received it today.
He is training for a charity bike ride to raise funds for Breast Cancer. Isn’t that just the coolest?
It worked out he got the like new trainer for a good price, I got a little cash flow, and Breast Cancer will benefit too.
A nice, feel good win-win-win situation even in a tough economy! 🙂
