Please Mum – Trade your kids clothing & get Green Backs


Starting February 1st, bring in your gently used children’s clothing to a Please Mum store and receive GREEN BACKS in return. Green Backs are like $ off coupons to be used towards any in store purchase.

This isn’t an opportunity to make tons of $ like you might if you sold the clothing yourself or consigned it. That being said, if you shop at Please Mum and have a large pile of clothing that is too small for your kiddos just sitting in the corner (like me) it might be a great time to trade it in and save a few bucks.

Thanks couponlady

    Don’t forget this part… I loved this until I read this part, lol. of course it can still be a really good deal… may have to plan a bit more than intitailly thought. 🙂

    “Can be redeemed immediately or within the 30 days after issue. Can be used towards the purchase of any product in-stores with the exception of gift cards. Total amount redeemed cannot exceed 50% of entire transaction (after tax)…”

    I think this is such a good idea, worth more then donating, and a place to put your clothes that consignment won’t take. Not that I will stop donating, but I am a huge clothes horder when it come to my son, I have atleast 6 boxes of 12-24 months that I am sure my sisters arent going to use all of them, might as well get some new clothes out of the deal.

    1 Green Back = 50¢ CDN Cash Value
    2 Green Backs = $1 CDN Cash Value
    5 Green Backs = $250 CDN Cash Value

    good eye!

    does anyone know what they do with the stuff? donate it or sell it to stores (i.e. ValueVillage) themselves?

    I was curious because I couldn’t find where it says.

    Would be nice if they donate to needy families or other countries with need – but if they are selling it, I’d rather just donate.

    Thanks for the tip though – would be good to try and find out.

    Another site I found said it is a donation program (I didn’t realize this is just starting – and likely temporary…), in that case, it is a really nice thing to do with a little perk for all involved.

    you get better money doing this than the cheap people on kijiji! LOL

    The last time I participated in this program they would only accept PLEASE MUM

  10. Cleo_47 says:

    used clothing and not just any brand of clothing

    “””Please Mum will be accepting gently worn children’s tops, bottoms, and jackets (not required to be Please Mum apparel).”””

    so it can even be like a wal mart brand?lol. Those are the only brands i like to get rid of really.

  13. pinkyts says:

    I like the fact that it’s not only please mum clothing. Last time they did it, they wouldn’t give credit for swimsuits and a few other things but they’d take them to donate anyways.

  14. sara says:

    How much do they give you per item? I am wondering if it is better to “sell” to them or just Kijiji them…

  15. Dani says:

    It is being donated to Africa. I spoke with a sales person at Please Mum today and that is what she told me.

  16. Dani says:

    Sara, putting them on Kijiji will get you more. 50 cents for a shirt? That’s not much.

  17. Monica says:

    I took in two boxes of all brands of used clothing yesterday and received $122 in green backs! I will spread the wealth among family and friends as I will not purchase that much clothing in 30 days. I tried used clothing stores, community sale and kijiji first! This is so much easier!
