I'm partnering with eBay today to share exclusive summer shopping deals created specifically for mobile, because let's be honest, we all want to sit by the pool while we get our shopping done, right?
July is here and we are in full blown summer mode. I know all too well that August and a new school year are just around the corner, so as long as it's July it's going to be all summer all the time here! We've been camping and swimming and eating all the fresh fruit we can get our hands on. Let it be July forever!
However, let me tell you what we're not doing this summer: there is no possible way, not even for the cutest beach bag or the greatest sale, that you'll find me taking four kids out shopping. Not ever going to happen.
But shopping while lying on the beach? Yes please! eBay surveyed the country and found that almost 60% of Americans plan to shop on mobile this summer and eBay's latest app makes it easy to score great deals all summer long. I prefer online shopping and mobile purchases all the time, but especially when the kids are home in the summer. You won't find me at the mall when I can do everything poolside in July.
This summer, eBay is offering shoppers deep discounts on in-demand items across tech, fashion, home, travel and music with free shipping all season long. Now through August, new deals will be released at savings of up to 70% off – no membership required. So, we really can do all our shopping poolside with popsicles, no joke! eBay is making it easy to find summer essentials from in-demand brands at the right price, all available on mobile.
Right now, I'm in the market for a new laptop, a pair of sandals to fall in love with, a rug for the dining room, and new backpacks for the kids (see how August is creeping in already?), and I'm heading to eBay on my phone to get my shopping done. eBay polled Americans in every state to find out exactly what they want and are delivering mobile deals on their seasonal-must-haves, at incredible value, all with fast and free shipping! All summer long, you can access exclusive deals created specifically for mobile on in-demand items across fashion, tech, and home.
And now, here's the fun part! You can head to twitter.com/eBay and vote for your favorite summer must-haves! This is the schedule for eBay's Twitter polls:
- Summer Fun: Voting Begins: July 11 // Deal Released: July 14
- Olympics: Voting Begins: August 8 // Deal Released: August 11
- Labor Day: Voting Begins: August 22 // Deal Released: August 25
This how the twitter polls will work:
- Head over to twitter.com/eBay
- There will be two dueling items - this week it's two tech items at 50% off - an RCA 10.1" 2-in-1 Tablet versus a Dell Inspiron 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop
- Vote on your favorite item
- The winning deal will be available to shop with the eBay app for iOS and Android three days later when the deal is released. You can get the winning tech item in the app on July 14.
Sounds fun and easy too. Best part: you don't have to put on pants to pick up a new laptop. And with 900 million listings at any given time, you'll be able to find exactly what you're looking for. Really, eBay had me with the free shipping (the majority of items on eBay ship for free), but the eBay mobile app totally made my summer. Have fun shopping!
