Barter Challenge Video Between Steve Ortiz and Some Guy

I stumbled across this video a little while back and I thought it would be good to share with everyone.   Just in case some of you guys and girls aren’t aware, Steven Ortiz is the kid how traded an old cell phone up to Porsche in 2 years.   I personally don’t have to patients to wait two years to trade stuff so I couldn’t do it.  I’m more of a, start with a netbook computer and trade up to a Harley in about a month, kind of guy.

Anyways, here is the video.  Check it out and let me know what you think about the trades they make.




I’m not sure about the value they put on that Laptop…  What do you think?

    Interesting video. Although it certainly can’t be that easy because if it was everyone would be doing it.

    Amazing! Steve traded the iPhone valued at $200 for an HP Laptop valued at $1,700. If I had to vote, I would vote for Steve. I think trades were better.

    That was pretty interesting. I think the challenger should win because his item would be far more beneficial to an elderly or disabled person vs the dirt bike which is for fun. Also regarding that Porsche, I would’ve sold it, got a cheaper car and deposited the rest of the cash.

    Wow! This is really impressive. I am definitely jealous of his skills, but good for these guys. It’s amazing how they are able to trade little items into such bigger wins!

    I remember reading about this guy a while ago, seems like such a simple thing to do but is still remarkable.

    @Ashlee Thanks for the comment! The crazy thing is, it’s REALLY not that hard at all. I mean it’s a tiny bit harder than what they show, but it’s completely possible. It’s always blown my mind how there isn’t more ppl doing it. Hopefully, I’ll change that!

"I honestly didn't think trading up was possible. Sean said to email him if I had any questions so I figured I might as well. He not only convinced me how possible it is he walked me through step by step until I made my first trade up. I am so happy I found this blog and emailed Sean." -Dave R. Raleigh, NC
