eBay's Mobile Exclusive Deals Include Discounts on Tablets, Jewelry, Clothes
By: eBay Inc. Editors
Mobile is the name of the game for eBay this holiday season so we’re kick-starting the festivities with a slew of mobile-exclusive Thanksgiving deals from the likes of Microsoft, Samsung, Canon and Sony.
Beginning at 5:23 p.m. E.T. Thanksgiving Day — a.k.a. the time you’re probably finishing up your turkey dinner — eBay will start announcing through its iPhone app the first of over 200 deals set to roll out between now and Cyber Monday. Deals — which include discounts on Samsung Galaxy tablets and assorted toys, jewelry pieces, electronics and more — will be released in multiples of 20, meaning that at any time, 20, 40, or 60 deals could be available. Sale prices run the gamut from $4.99 to $1199.99.
But just as — if not more — important than the prices of the deals themselves are the quality of the brands represented in eBay’s ‘Shop After Hours’ program. In addition to working with usual suspect technology partners, eBay’s Deals teams also struck arrangements with lifestyle brands like Kenneth Cole, Disney, and Estee Lauder to ensure consumers get a mix of diversified products over the next four days.
After all, online shoppers spent $2.3 billion over Thanksgiving weekend and Cyber Monday last year, according to comScore. With even more shoppers equipped with mobile phones this year, that figure will only go up.
