Black Friday is almost upon us, but this year’s shoppers are eager to skip the lines. A recent eBay study found that 76% of would-be buyers…more than three quarters…would give something up rather than endure the chaos of Black Friday lines, while 26%…that’s one out of every four…would rather have a root canal.
Still, Black Friday shoppers expect deeper discounts, so eBay is giving them early access online with its new campaign, “Don’t Wait for Black Friday” deals. From November 13-17, with many retailers announcing their top Black Friday deals in advance, eBay will match the prices on many of those same top deals. New deals will be offered every day, all with fast and free shipping, on brand-new items from top brands like Ninja, Samsung, and Apple, among others.
The full list of items eligible for “Don’t Wait for Black Friday” deals can be found at https://www.ebay.com/DontWaitForBlackFriday.
