There is nothing in the world like Spanish mischief. That vile cunning usually perpetrated to favor our own interests through deception, dissimulation and all kinds of stratagems and tricks. These tricks, on many occasions, allow us to save a good amount of money, as has happened in the case of a young student named Laura.
It turns out that a young Spanish woman who is in Naples (Italy) on Erasmus, needed her mother to send her a few groceries (especially pipes) and other basic necessities. The problem was that checking a suitcase to send all the things it would have cost them around 70 or 80 euros. Luckily, they devised a cunning ruse to avoid payment…
The trick to send suitcases abroad by the face
Instead of checking in and sending the suitcase the usual way, mother and daughter decided that it would be best to “buy” the suitcase from the Vinted app. The cost of the operation? 5 euros.
lol, this girl instead of checking in a suitcase has “bought” the suitcase from her mother through vinted and it cost them €5 (instead of 60/70/80 or whatever it is to check in)

Apparently, there are many people who use this viral trick to send suitcases, packages and boxes abroad and nationally. In fact, some people claim that Vinted and similar platforms offer a much cheaper way to move.
There are shipping companies that are cheap enough to scratch a few €. At the beginning of the year 3 boxes of 60x40x40 of approx 17-20 kilos. €34. I’m moving and it’s cheaper than hiring one. The more packages, the cheaper. Packlink is a matcher/broker. xo there is +

Vinted is an app available on the iOS App Store and on the Google Play Store for Android. It is one of the most popular online shopping apps today, it is a platform for sale of used clothing and other items which, as has happened on this occasion, allows you to save good money.
It is a very reliable method that, at least, has allowed this mother and her daughter to save money while other more unfortunate people who have checked their belongings have had to go to an AirTag to recover their bags.
What do you think about this viral trick to send unchecked bags? Have you ever done something similar?
