So, it’s Prime Day. While Amazon may be getting all the attention, there are some big savings to be had over at eBay today, too — no membership required.
From Tech to Fashion, Home to Travel, all kinds of stuff is available across the board at the eBay Deals page. And we’re not talking about used junk. Rather, these are brand-new products in their original, unopened packages from top-rated eBay sellers. So whether you’re looking for an Ultrawide WFHD TV with a 21:9 aspect ratio (yeah, that’s 2560 x 1080 resolution you see above) for 40 percent off, or perhaps some $160 Asics running shoes for $57, you’d best click over to eBay before midnight tonight. Heck, you can even buy a car if you want. We’ve listed some of our favorite deals below.
As if that wasn’t incentive enough, eBay has announced a new price matching policy for items purchased via its Deals page. It’s exactly what it sounds like: eBay guarantees that more than 50,000 deals daily will be the best price online — or eBay will match the lower price of a competitor. To be eligible, the item must be available on Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Walmart.com, HomeDepot.com, Target.com, Sears.com, Wayfair.com, or Jet.com. And while we prefer to buy directly from the manufacturer whenever possible, that list covers a fairly healthy chunk of the online marketplace. Get more info on eBay's new price matching policy here.
Here are some bargains we found:
- Google Home & Chromecast Bundle. If you’re reading this, you’ve yet to throw your lot in with Amazon (if you had, you’d already be a Prime member). So you should jump on this deal for the competition. At $100, it’s 60 bucks off.
- Victorinox Swiss Army Original Chronograph Quartz Watch. At just $84, it’s more than 80 percent off for this classic in black, with nylon strap and silver luminescent hands.

- Milwaukee 18V 1/2" Drill Driver Kit. Milwaukee’s cordless power tools are among the best, and at nearly 50 percent off this kit is a steal. Full disclosure: this kit is refurbished by the manufacturer. But we don't care, and you shouldn't, either.
- Herschel Supply Co Little America Laptop Backpack. The hottest name in portage is nearly 50 percent off here.
