Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year, where brick and mortar stores offer huge discounts on thousands of different products.
Earlier this week, eBay announced that they would be running a “Wish Bigger” campaign, which would let their customers choose what products would be available at a discounted price for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. According to eBay’s press release, eBay will let you crowd source the deals you want most “while skipping the chaos – but not the savings – of Black Friday.”

“We are using the power of eBay’s global marketplace to enable people to shop, sell, and give in new ways this holiday,” says Hal Lawton, senior vice president of eBay North America. “We have a unique opportunity to celebrate the traditional retail milestones, but to also create a new calendar based on what we know eBay shoppers and sellers need.”
Starting on Thanksgiving Day, shoppers will start heading to ebay-wish-bigger.com “to vote to break open and unlock a series of incredible deals on the season’s most coveted gifts across tech, toys, fashion and home.”
“Beginning at 4 p.m. EST until 10 p.m. EST, competing deals will be featured on each side of the wishbone, and the item that receives the most votes over the course of an hour will be released to shoppers in a limited quantity.”
Three new ads, posted by FatWallet.com, offer a sneak preview of what is in store for customers shopping eBay on Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Deals are supposed to be hitting the site every hour starting on Wednesday, November 25, at 9:00 p.m. PST.
