Even though Black Friday 2019 doesn’t actually arrive until the end of this month, more than one retailer has decided to go ahead and try to get a jump on the competition by revealing details of their Black Friday sales early — four weeks early, to be exact.
By way of kicking off its holiday deals announcement, eBay is rolling out a series of weekly “Drops” that will happen every Friday and offer savings on new and trending items on the site through December 13. Because of the frequency and the scheduled time, eBay is encouraging shoppers to actually go so far as to set a timer so they can make sure and grab the deal they want once it arrives, which will happen every Friday at noon Eastern Time. That’s when final prices for the hot “Drop” of the day will be unveiled, with the items available while supplies last — and all including free shipping.
The discounted items will include everything from a Nintendo Switch Lite to Bose Headphones, a Breville Espresso Machine, and lots more. The Friday “Drops” kick off today, November 1, with a $20-off sale on the Apple Watch Series 5.
Also part of its holiday deals announcement is a new eBay “Holiday Brand Outlet” which will offer savings on brand-name offerings. Shoppers can take an extra 20% off from November 4-11 on more than 50 top brands in every category, including Ray-Ban, Adidas, Samsonite, and Dyson.
