Such a good place to buy and sell in college!!

I seriously love this app! Especially because I am a college student I always find things I need for cheap and selling stuff that I only wore once. I definitely recommend it over other similar apps because it’s through your college making it especially easy to sell and receive items. I love rumie!!!!

New favorite way to shop!

I was sooo excited when rumie finally came to my campus. It makes it easy to shop from people on campus, which is such a bonus not having to pay for shipping! I also love the rent feature as it is so easy to find outfits for events without having to buy something new! The app is so easy to navigate!

My biggest problem in College was not having enough money to hit the town with the boys after raging for a few days. Luckily with rumie I can sell all those Christmas gifts people got me for some quick cash and keep the party going! Its so nice to be able to just throw my stuff on rumie and get some money for the weekend! Thanks rumie
