Introducing Call Dibs- A military-exclusive mobile market place


What if we told you there was a place where MilSpouse businesses could market their products and services within their military community for FREE?? What if we told you that place was available on your phone and that it was started and run by other military entrepreneurs. Would you be interested? Yep, we thought so.


The amazing folks over at Call Dibs are working hard to create a mobile community for, well, our mobile community! Not only is it a place where you can get rid of all those things that you just can't fit in your household goods shipment, but it's a place to look for all those essentials you need when you move to a new place. And I mentioned you could also use it as a mechanism for spreading the word about your business to others in your military community, right?

calldibsCall Dibs, by Adjacent Apps, is a FREE mobile selling application; exclusive only to the military community that allows active duty, dependents, veterans, reservists, and the DOD to buy, sell, and exchange goods from the convenience of your mobile device.


The Story behind Call Dibs:

Military families are accustomed to relocating. This often means unloading items prior to a move, or acquiring new items at the next duty station. Call Dibs provides our community a means to do so with ease. Unlike other online-selling tools, Call Dibs gives users a sense of trust, accountability, and security; knowing they’re transacting with other members of the military.


Developed by Anthony Garcia, a U.S. Army veteran, Call Dibs was created as a forum built upon the trust of our military community. The values and principles, which define the military, are unique to its culture. Because of this, the goal of Call Dibs is to provide a marketplace which will ensure security through transparency, affiliation, and verification. 


How Call Dibs works:

If you need to get rid of items, it’s fast and easy: 1. Describe your item, 2. List a price, 3. Select a length of availability, and 4. Upload a picture from your mobile device. Call Dibs can also be used out of good will, by just giving something away to your fellow service member or spouse. And if you’re in need of items, Call Dibs allows the awareness of knowing what’s available in your local area. You can see this through the Call Dibs map view or scroll through the list view. And if you’re PC’sing soon – search your future destination. View this link for a step by step process of how to list items on Call Dibs:


How Call Dibs Can Benefit MSBA Members

Call Dibs initially has been focused on peer to peer transactions, however many spouses work from home as independent consultants, etc. Military spouses/MSBA members are able to download the Call Dibs App for free and can list their goods and services for free as well; thereby allowing you to offer your business to other military families in your local community.
