eBay Takes On Other Retailers' Early Black Friday Deals

Don't Wait for Black Friday

eBay is taking on early Black Friday and holiday deals being offered by other retailers. eBay says it conducted a study that found more than three quarters (76%) of shoppers would give something up rather than endure the chaos of Black Friday lines. This study also found 26% of shoppers would rather have a root canal than wait in a Black Friday line.

eBay is challenging competing retailers with its a new deal section called "Don't Wait for Black Friday" deals. The section features holiday deals on products including kitchen electrics, TVs, toys, home goods, handbags, jewelry and more. Free shipping is included with each deal. The deals mention the price of a competitor and says eBay is beating or matching the price. The site currently mentions deals from Kohl's, Macy's, JCPenny's and Walmart.

These are some of the deals currently on the site: eBay says it will add new deals to the section daily through November 17.
