eBay Announces Thanksgiving Day Deals, Invites Shoppers to Wish Bigger by Voting for Their Favorites

From Apple Watches to Prada Sunglasses, Shoppers Break a
“Digital Wishbone” to Pick the Deals They Want Most

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the first time, eBay shoppers can vote for the holiday deals they
want. On Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 26) eBay is launching the “Wish Bigger
Wishbone.” Inspired by the classic tradition of breaking the turkey
wishbone, eBay will pair two different deals against each other every
hour from 4:00 p.m. ET to 10:00 p.m. ET. Potential deals are up 70% off
MSRP on new, in-demand gifts ranging from top tech, to fashion
accessories, toys and home appliances. The winning deal will “break
open” at the end of each hour.


Shoppers can visit ebay-wish-bigger.com
on desktop, mobile or tablet web today to preview deals, and can vote at
the same address on Thanksgiving Day. eBay Wish Bigger Wishbone deals on
Thanksgiving Day include1:
