Ebay is holding a sale to compete with Amazon’s Prime Day, and it isn’t being shy about the comparison. The “Ebay Crash Sale” will take place on July 15–and the deals will get even better if Amazon happens to crash during its big sale date.
Ebay states plainly that the sale is named after Amazon’s tech troubles last year, and that additional deals will activate if the competition crashes. The Ebay advertisement promises deals on Apple, Samsung, Garmin, Dyson, and more. The company also promised additional discounts going up daily as part of its “Hot Deals for Hot Days” sale lasting through July 22. You can find the daily discounts on Ebay’s Deals page.
Some of today’s deals include Sea of Thieves for $22, a Halo 5 Guardians controller for $63, and an Apple iPad Air for $620. Many of Ebay’s sale items include free shipping and returns with no membership needed–another distinction it touts with Amazon Prime Day.
“Ebay is primed to deliver exactly what shoppers want during this year’s crash (sale),” said Ebay Americas COO Jay Hanson in a statement. “July has become a massive shopping season, and our summer sales include blockbuster deals that will not disappoint.”
Of course, you can also partake in Amazon Prime Day deals, which will begin on July 15. And other retailers are stepping up their own efforts to compete with Amazon, including a GameStop Summer Sale and Target Deal Days.
