eBay Giving Shoppers Something to be ‘Thankful’ About

As the holiday shopping season looms large, eBay is ramping up its plans to kick of the season with a bang – a discounted bang.

eBay has announced a boat-load of mobile-exclusive deals that will give consumers something to be thankful about throughout the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

“Mobile is a game changer for holiday shopping,” Steve Yankovich, vice president of eBay Mobile, tells Mobile Commerce Daily. “Consumers expect to shop on their terms, and tablets and smartphones make every moment instantly shoppable.”

As part of the campaign, consumers will be able to shop eBay’s Holiday Collective – a collaboration between the company and seven designers such as Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan and Tibi.

The will also be limited-edition gifts ranging from clothing and jewelry, to travel and electronics.

All told, it’s everything the serious and savvy mobile consumer would want… and then some. eBay is also planning blockbuster deals for Black Friday.

“With eBay mobile, it’s easier than ever to get great deals on holiday gifts – anytime, anywhere,” Yankovich says.
