Free Shoes and Make up

Today I got these Mia clogs and Flexx shoes in the mail for free:

I also put in an order for what I hope will be over $100 worth of free Urban Decay make up.

OK, now for the '"Here's How!" section.

I visit at least daily and watch for sales.  When I noticed a hot deal on shoes at, I picked out some I wanted.  I checked the prices on Ebay and found that the shoes I had my eye on at a price of $17.97 were selling on Ebay for at least $26.99.  So, I bought 2 pairs for me and 4 pairs in common sizes for Ebay.  After my auctions finished today (all selling for at least 26.99 plus 9.99 shipping/handling), my shoes ended up being free.

I have been checking Haute Look for about a year but never jumped until today- Urban Decay make up for $2.00 a piece.  I love Urban Decay's brilliant pigmentation and lasting power, but can't afford to buy it normally.  I picked out several for myself and for gifts, and several to resell.  (On Ebay, the mascaras posted above sell for ~$7).  My goal is to sell enough to make the pieces I keep free. and Haute Look are online brand name/ designer discounters.  I highly recommend checking both out.  No More Rack is a new one, and using this link you get $10 credit when you sign up, plus items are only $2 to ship- so sign in and get something for free!

This was my first time attempting this, so I am quite proud of myself.  Anyone else have an Ebay experience?  Or have you picked up any hot deals recently?
