It may not surprise you to learn that quite a few “serial bag shoppers” work here at eBags. It’s not that we’re fickle about our purchases, exactly—we love all of our bags DEEPLY, for a time. But we’re also the first to know when shiny NEW bags arrive on the scene, so let’s just say our allegiances change frequently, and we don’t often have the opportunity to wear anything out. Sound familiar?
Giving Back is *Totally* Our Bag.
We also believe that wonderful things can happen when a not-so-new bag gets a brand-new owner. That’s why we’re SO excited to announce our new partnership with Goodwill Industries International this holiday season. Thanks to our Trade In, Trade Up program, you can easily donate any gently used bag (backpacks, business cases, handbags, duffels, suitcases and more) by mail. Shipping is pre-paid, so all you have to do is pack up your Give Back Box—and reap the rewards.
25% off + a FREE Connected Luggage Tag.
Think about it: there’s absolutely no downside. With the holidays just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to set aside bags that are no longer getting the love they deserve. You’ll be sharing the love with someone for whom a brand-new bag might be out of financial reach. You’ll also be making room for NEW stuff, which is the perfect way to spend the 25% off coupon we’ll give you—just for making your donation! And when your new shiny eBags arrive, we’ll make it easier than ever to keep track of them with a FREE eBags Connected Luggage Tag.
Good for People + the Planet, too.
The Trade In, Trade Up Program reduces environmental impact in two ways. First, it gives new life to items that might otherwise end up in a landfill; many mixed-material bags can be difficult to recycle, so they’re often just thrown away. Second, your donations will go directly into YOUR reused shipping box, which is sent directly to Goodwill–and then recycled once it’s empty. And that’s not even including the karma points you’re getting for paying the bag-love forward.
Trade In, Trade Up in 4 Simple Steps:
1) Download and print your prepaid shipping label from eBags.com
2) Pack up used bags and luggage or other gently used household items
3) Send your box. Mail your donations to Goodwill for free. You can drop off your package at a local UPS store or notify your local United States Postal Service representative of your parcel.
4) Save on something new. Once Goodwill receives your donation you will get an email with a code for 25% off and a free eBags Connected Luggage Tag.
THE FINE PRINT: All donations are tax-deductible. Your donations must be gently used, without stains, burns, tears or holes; wheels, handles, and zippers must be intact and in working order.
While pursuing her graduate degree in Creative Writing at CU Boulder, Staci took a part-time job crafting trip itineraries for an extreme travel company—and so embarked upon an adventure that continues to this day. In the ensuing two decades, her passion for journey and destination alike took her everywhere from the Far East (backpacking in Cambodia) to the Wild West (wrangling horses in Colorado). Work and family permitting, Staci is devoted to her ongoing quest to find the perfect taco and the perfect point break. Fair warning: if she finds them in the same place, she’s probably not coming back.
