eBay has kicked off its answer to Amazon Prime Day 2019 with three full weeks of summer deals on July 1 including electronics, fashion, sporting goods, home items and more. Its announcement promises discounts of up to 80 percent on bands like Apple, Dyson, Garmin, Samsung and adidas. eBay has also promised to beat the competition on any eBay deal!
July Fourth Savings: The first seven days of savings from July 1 to July 7, 2019 include deals of up to 85% off on robotic vacuums, cookware, stand mixers, camping gear, outdoor toys and more.
Hot Deals for Hot Days: The final two weeks offer hot deals on smart home devices, home appliances, technology products and more with new deals launching daily. They will go from July 8th to July 22nd.
eBay Crash Sale
eBay has announced that it will offer even bigger deals on July 15, 2019 if Amazon crashes again. Last year, Amazon had problems with the search function on its website during the first few hours of its annual Prime Day deals – which made shopping difficult.
This “crash sale” will give doorbuster savings of more than 50% off for certain products from LG, Apple, Samsung, KitchenAid, Garmin and more no matter what. And the deals will be even bigger if Amazon crashes on July 15th.
Past eBay Prime Day Sales
eBay started competing against Amazon during the popular Prime Day as far back as 2017. That year, it ran an advertising campaign on billboards, television and social media asking, “Did You Check EBay?” It ended up setting a daily record for gross merchandise volume for the summer shopping season on its marketplace that day. Traffic was up 10.2% over a comparable Tuesday that year. The deals included $335 off an Apple Macbook Air, $280 off a Dell 15.6 inch gaming laptop, $220 off an iRobot Roomba 650, and more!
In 2018, eBay countered the Prime Day deals by offering free shipping and thousands of marketplace deals the week of July 16th to all consumers without a membership. eBay’s announcement of the sale asked: “Why spend money on monthly membership fees to get deals on the things you want?” eBay called it Sales Day. Last year’s deals included 24% off a Nest Learning Thermostat, 38% off a 2-pack of Google Home Devices, 50% off a Samsung 55 inch 4K smart TV, 20% off a Microsoft Xbox One X 1 TB Console, 22% off an Apple 9.7 inch iPad, and more.
As Prime Day approaches, we will post all of the eBay deals for 2019. So stop back soon!
