ePN TV: Carrie Smith Walks Through the Daily Deals Holiday Calendar

One of my favorite things about ePN TV is that we get to interview different folks at eBay to get a sense of what they’re working on in their little corner of the eBay Universe. Not only is it fun to look beyond the walls of ePN, but it also provides a behind the scenes glimpse for publishers to better understand the many facets of the larger eBay organization. Pretty cool, right?

This week, Julia Barrett, ePN’s Head of North America is chatting with Carrie Smith, the Daily Deals Ninja! Carrie was kind enough to update us on some of the fun deals being rolled out this Holiday season.

To commemorate a milestone – the 3rd birthday of the Daily Deals Program - the team released the Xbox Gold Card at an astonishingly low price. If you’re a gamer, you know you can’t find this price anywhere.

Carrie also let us know about some other exciting events on the calendar through the end of the year:

  • eBay Daily Deals Daily Sweepstakes:  11/1–12/16 - Prizes include an iPad, xbox 360 bundle, Nikon COOLPIX S9100, Nintendo 3DS and $500 gift cards. Users must enter daily for a chance to win.
  • Guaranteed Arrival: 12/15–12/19 - Certain sellers will guarantee arrival by the holidays if products are purchased within a certain time frame.
  • 25 Days of Deals: The Deals Team will be promoting two deals per day!
  • Black Friday Week: 11/21-11/23 – Two deals per day throughout the week
  • Pre-Cyber Monday Week: 11/26-11/27 – Two deals per day throughout the week

As you can see, there’s a lot going on through the rest of the Holiday shopping season. As a publisher this would be a great time to road-test Daily Deals on your site. You can grab creative within the Publisher Portal.
