Cheapskates is exclusively a sports consignment store. We offer an opportunity for the community to sell their sporting equipment with little effort, while also receiving a return for their previously-owned sports equipment and apparel.
Customers wishing to consign with Cheapskates will need to create an account with us, providing details including name, mailing address, driver’s license number and phone number so that we can deliver your payment once your item(s) have sold.
Once your item has sold, we will mail you a cheque for 60% of the sale value of your item(s) sold in the previous month. Cheques are mailed on the 1st of each month.NOTE: Because we are a consignment store, ALL SALES AT CHEAPSKATES ARE FINAL!
Cheapskates utilizes a unique pricing system, allowing customers to control the consignment process from start to finish while also allowing savings for purchasers. Once an original sale price has been decided upon, Cheapskates will drop the price by 10% of the original amount each week, gradually reducing the cost until the item is purchased.
For Example: If on January 2nd, 2016 a customer consigned an item:
Item #123 Original price: $10.00
On January 9th, 2016 the price will drop (by 10%) to: $9.00
On January 16th, 2016 the price will drop (by 10%) to: $8.00
On January 23th, 2016 the price will drop (by 10%) to: $7.00
On January 30th, 2016 the price will drop (by 10%) to: $6.00
On February 6th, 2016 the price will drop (by 10%) to: $5.00
