eBay launches early Black Friday deals
The competition for Black Friday sales just got hotter.
eBay’s “Don’t Wait for Black Friday” campaign kicked off with competitor-beating prices on a range of products as the online auction brand plans to roll out new deals every day this week.
“eBay will match the prices on many of those same top deals beginning today, making it easy to shop from home or on the go and feel confident about receiving the best price available,” eBay said in a statement.
The select, limited-time deals are based on print ads for identical items, and the offer is in addition to eBay’s free delivery and Price Match Guarantee, which applies to any new eBay Deals items that are identical and available at competitors such as Amazon, BestBuy, Walmart, HomeDepot, Target, Sears, Wayfair and Jet. Plus, eBay said there would be no blackouts for its Price Match Guarantee between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
You can pick up a Ninja Single Serve Coffee Bar for $64.99, an Apple Watch Series 3 for $325.00, a KitchenAid Stand Mixer Tilt 5-Quart for $249.99, and men’s and women’s Bulova watches for just $79.99.
eBay launched its early Black Friday deals in response to a study that found 76% of shoppers would give something up rather than endure the chaos of Black Friday lines, and 26% would rather opt for a root canal.
“This year, we’re doubling down to make sure they get the absolute best deals anytime, anywhere, with commitments like Price Match Guarantee, Guaranteed Delivery and our marketplace’s unmatched selection,” eBay deals director and general manager Jesse Kiefer said.
eBay recently pulled listings advertising the sale of sand allegedly sourced from Hawaii’s pristine beaches after they were found to be in direct violation of Hawaiian laws that prohibit people removing beach sand.
