What does BNWT stand for in online auctions?

Brand new with tags

In online auctions and marketplaces, BNWT stands for "brand new with tags." An item that's listed as BNWT has never been used, and it still has its price, barcode, size, and any other tags attached.

BNWT is a variant of NWT; you may encounter both on eBay, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and other marketplaces. Despite BNWT's extra letter, both acronyms mean the same thing. So if you're looking for an unused version of an item, keep an eye out for BNWT, NWT, and/or MIB.
