eBay's hittin' the road with some swanky stuff. Anyone like Tory Burch? We thought so!
Mobile eBay lands at Hollywood and Highland on Thursday and Friday, bringing shoppers the chance to buy some of eBay's most wanted items. It sounds like a fun event: personal shoppers, giveaways, giftwrapping, and more.
But one of the things we find so charming about eBay—and frankly what makes eBay, eBay—is all the weird, unique stuff you can find. And that's what our contests will focus on.
We want to give out all these cards by the end of the day: you can use them on eBay anytime, but we want you to have them so you can go down to the Mobile eBay boutique and use them. At random times throughout the day, we'll ask readers to find some odd or highly specific item on eBay, and email us the link. First person who emails us something that fits the description wins a $25 gift card. You'll have five chances throughout the day?
Starting with this one. Go to eBay, and find us a pink t-shirt with a picture of a cat on it. Ladies, size medium. Then email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Go!
