This year, eBay is back at it again trying to outdo traditional retailers like Target and Macy’s with its “Better than Black Friday” deals. The deals, which last through the week and end on Sunday, include Apple and Samsung products as well as jewelry and toys. eBay has selected dozens of items offered by rival retailers including Costco, BJ’s Wholesale, Kohl’s, and listed them on its site at slight discounts, often around $20 off. eBay is offering free shipping on all the deals, and if you spot a better deal on a competitor’s website for an item you’ve already purchased on eBay, you’ll be able to ask for compensation. You’ll just need to contact customer service within 48 hours after making a purchase on eBay to get a coupon of 110 percent of the difference. There are some daily deals staggered throughout the week, so no matter which day you start shopping on, some supplies will be left. And unlike last year, where eBay’s deals were only available on the weekdays, the online platform has extended its early deals week by two days into the weekend. We’ve picked out the highlights here and will keep updating this post with the latest deals. Early Deals (November 12th–18th) Available now: Deals available later this week:
