eBay will run another sitewide flash sale, this one on Tuesday, August 28th. Shoppers can save 15% off using the coupon code PREGAME15.
eBay subsidizes flash sale as a form of marketing, though critics say early leaks of such promotions allow sellers “in the know” to adjust their prices upward so they can pocket the savings.
Buyers must spend a minimum of $25 in order to receive the 15% discount. The savings are capped at $100. The sale kicks off at 8 am PT tomorrow and runs through 10 pm.
eBay is excluding the following categories from the promotion: Coins & Paper Money, Gift Cards & Coupons, and Real Estate.
The coupon code (PREGAME15) ties into eBay’s current homepage marketing message: “Football’s Back. Save Like a Champ,” which links to a page featuring items such as TVs, tailgate gear, and sports apparel. The page also features an advertisement for eBay’s ticket-sales subsidiary StubHub.
