Go Aussie with eBay’s massive long weekend sale
Roughly two million items are discounted in this mammoth sale and the discount is bigger than Boxing Day! So you'd be crazy to miss it.
The Australia Day long weekend is almost upon us and while many of us will celebrate by hitting the beach or seeing friends and family, eBay is celebrating in its own way.
eBay, one of Australia's most visited online shopping destinations, is offering shoppers the chance to save when they shop with home-grown and local sellers.
Until 28 January, eBay is running the "Go Aussie" sale. Over 2 million items across 100 top Aussie sellers will have their prices slashed by 20%. And these discounts include items from brands like Sony, Lenovo and Lorna Jane.
This is a big discount for eBay. On Boxing Day, the biggest sale event on the Australian calendar, eBay offered 10% off everything, so by comparison, 20% off is a very good deal.
According to Tim MacKinnon, managing director for eBay: "The Go Aussie sale really is a celebration of all Aussie buyers and sellers onsite who have helped foster our growth in Australia over the last 18 years.
"We’ve got over 40,000 Aussie businesses and 11.8 million monthly visitors on site – so we wanted to celebrate these small business sellers on eBay and what a better time than the Australia Day long weekend."
eBay knows that Australians love to shop Aussie and support local businesses. In fact, some eBay research shows that 86% of Australians agree that shopping local and buying Australian products is important or very important to them.
MacKinnon said: "We’re a nation that is extremely patriotic and the Go Aussie sale allows us to continue to provide our consumers with the products and deals they want most."
Shoppers can head to the Go Aussie eBay hub to access the discount items and sales. The sales run out by the end of the weekend though, so get in quick before you miss out.
