Deals & Steals this Holiday Season with the @eBay Holiday Guide

I can’t believe Black Friday is already upon us! I like to take a peek at what’s available but it’s never been enough to get me out of the house to brave those crowds. Instead I like to sit beside my computer with a nice warm cup of coffee and scout out the best online deals. Surprisingly, I usually find the best deals and all my hard to find items on eBay.

eBay is like one great big store in which you can find anything. Whether I’m looking for something marketed in the 1960's or that hot new toy, I can find it on eBay. If you’re not a frequent eBay shopper you might be under the impression you can only shop by placing bids or even that all items are used. This can’t be further from the truth. While you can find some great items and score some great deals on auction style products, you can also find plenty of buy it now deals – those are my favorite. And while of course you can buy used and hit it big, there are millions of new items on eBay everyday, sometimes at prices you wouldn’t believe.

In fact eBay has a great gift guide this year featuring the hottest new and buy it now deals of the season. If you’re having a hard time deciding on the right gift for a friend, family member or special someone this holiday season this guide can be quite useful. I actually just finished my own list.


An Apple iPod nano 7th Generation Silver (16 GB) requested by my youngest son, so he isn’t bored on the bus.

    For me shopping eBay has always been a breeze. I'm able to monitor prices, buy on the spot and find that one item on my kids list that seems to be sold out just about every where. 

    Making holiday shopping even easier for me, eBay has also introduced the eBay mobile app! This app allows users to scan barcodes making it easy to search for items, sell and add tracking information. You can also set up notifications and bid alerts to let you know when your item is ending, when you've been outbid, won or sold an item, received an offer, payment or message, and more! Never again do you have to miss out on that one of a kind item, with bidding and buying power at your fingertips where ever you go!

    Keep up with all eBay has to offer this holiday season and beyond by following @eBay on Twitter or "liking"  eBay on Facebook.

    I want that camera for me! Not sure about letting the apple iPod nano on the bus though. It might "disappear."

    A cordless gas kettle... It would have never crossed my mind but that would actually be perfect for us in storm season. We've already lost power once this year and it probably won't be the last time.
