Hey,  I also shared it in the "share your badassity" community. Let me know if I need to delete the double post and I can.

I found a post on reddit to get $50 of clothes for free and it worked. I've since gotten another $50 in free clothes from referrals.

Here's how you do it
1. click on the link you'll get a $15 credit. https://www.schoola.com/stitch/rf523395
2. Click the Collection tab at the top, and at the bottom of the dropdown it says Create New Collection. A new screen will pop up and on the left side where you can click create a collection and select your preferences. Make sure and save the collection - this adds another 10 dollars to your account.
3. Browse the website and add $50 worth of clothing to your bag/cart. Remember: the collection button has a under $5 section which will get you the most of your money.
4. Once you’re ready to check out, go to your bag and input your shipping info and payment info. Use promo code ‪#‎schoolasummer‬. Make sure to include the #. This coupon will takes 50% the total price. Half of 50 is $25, but you have earned $25 in free credit, so it comes out free!
BAM! - you're welcome. And if you use my link - I get another $15 credit - so that'd be awesome. Free clothes for everyone!

Is it only for kids and women?

That seems to be the bulk of it, but I've now bought stuff for my husband, my dad and my brother on it.

You'll want to go under teen boys, and then search the sizes that you are. It brings up men's sizes.

The sorting features are a bit off and clumsy, but if you're ok sorting a bit - you can come out with some nice clothes for free.

Hmm... not getting your $15 credit. Got the $10 for the collection and the half off, but my total is coming out to be $15 and change. Anyone else have this problem?

The referral code worked fine for me yesterday.   
the $15 credit did not show up in my shopping cart until I proceeded to check out.
But I ended up paying $2 in sales tax because I forgot to include that when I was shopping.
Maybe it turns out that giving away $50 of clothes for FREE isn't such a great business model ;-)

FYI, there is this review site which has some negative feedback.
So I would keep expectations low.

if you'd like to try a different referral code, here's mine.

So there is the idea that this website is donating a significant portion of its proceeds to Charitable foundations...for instance, this pair of capri's:

https://www.schoola.com/stitch/products/calvin-klein-blue-bottom-727088

Sells for $14.95 and of that $5.94 will go to programs for kids at Schoola Scholars Fund in San Francisco, CA.

Maybe gaming this isn't really in the spirit of the site's intent....kind of like staying in Public Housing long after you no longer need the subsidy.

I'm a red panda

A number of my facebook friends have used schoola before, so when I posted my referral link there they couldn't use it, but were excited to see more people using schoola.

Shipping apparently is really slow, and clothes are not always great condition (but are marked 'blemished' on the site)- but otherwise everyone was very happy.

Based on how it was worded the donation still gets given if you use the promo codes. They are presumably doing this to drive up business.  I didn't know about them before. Now that I do- I am pretty likely to use them again.

USA only :)

Just tried it and it seems to work... except for the shipping part ;)

I think you make a good point. However, I'm choosing to see it as similar to when Clearly Contacts / Coastal Eyeglasses did "First Pair Free" and people took advantage BUT it was phenomenal advertising and now they're making a killing.
