Hi there,

This month we had our sweet sixteen here at Trade Me and we want to give you a slice of the cake!

For the next 16 days we're giving away $1,000 cash each day – choice huh?

Simply buy a 'Brand New' item on Trade Me, and every dollar you spend gives you an entry into that day's draw. Terms apply.

Need to purchase something new or feel like treating yourself? Trade Me has over 1.4 million brand new items for sale... is it time for a new phone case, some Nike kicks, fresh furniture, or even a new shed?
Get shopping to win!
Starship eggcellence
The Whittaker's Big Egg Hunt is in full swing across the country. The eggs are listed on-site so have a look – there are some awesome designs by super-talented artists, and all the proceeds go to Starship.

If you come across some of the giant eggs, take a selfie with one of them and flick the photo through to us before Good Friday. We'll get our selfie-aficionados to check them out and send the coolest selfie-taker a wee prize.

Cool community stories
Each month, some pretty cool stories emerge from our awesome community of members.

Did you see this one about a group of four mates and their Land Rover? 15 years ago they compiled their student allowances to buy the 1957 beauty and affectionately named it "Landy".

Fast-forward to today and Landy had seen better days – it was time to part ways with the beloved vehicle by selling it on Trade Me. Land Rover NZ saw the listing and the rest is history. Check it out.
