There are times I am reminded just how long I’ve been using eBay as one of my go-to sources for just about everything I could possibly need. I joined the site in March 2001 – and no, that’s not a typo! For more than 20 years, I’ve been finding bargains from vintage pieces for my home to attachments for my broken hoover to camera lenses, shoes, clothing, gifts and well, pretty much anything and everything you can think of.
eBay’s offerings have only grown over the decades making it easier than ever to find everything you need and with the busiest shopping days on the horizon, every base is covered. eBay Black Friday, landing on 26 November, is one of the best days of the year to land yourself a bargain with up to 50% off a wide range of products across Black Friday weekend. It’s a great opportunity to take advantage of the deals and even sell on your own pre-loved items to make some cashback in the run-up to the big day.
I thought I’d share with you how to navigate the Black Friday deals and show you some of the items that are on my own wishlist as well as deals I’ve eyed up to add to my Christmas gift list too. With deals across electronics, fashion & beauty and leisure, there are plenty of bargains to be had so you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for this Christmas.
My Own eBay Wish List
Whilst giving is always better than receiving, I have to admit, pulling together my own wishlist is always fun too! I decide to begin my search at the Black Friday electronic deals where you can get great deals on both new and used electronics.
In fact, eBay is currently running an offer during Black Friday where if you buy anything for £5 or more from today until the 29th November, you qualify for selling fees of just £1 across 3 items that you sell. So it’s a great way to sell off things I may no longer need, keeping items out of landfill and make a little extra for my Christmas spending budget!
With plenty of great deals on electronics, I can’t help but spy a Ninja Nutri Ninja BL450 900W Blender and Smoothie Maker that’s 33% off in the sales. I have fallen out of the habit of making myself healthy smoothies in the morning and adding this to my wishlist, my hopes are high that I can get back to that healthy habit in the new year!
My eBay Gift List for Others
Now for the really fun part – choosing items for my loved ones! Be sure to click on the red ‘Black Friday Deals This Way’ tab at the top of the page to make it easy to find the best deals to be had across lots of different departments. To start with, I head over to the Leisure section first…
Wayne is an avid runner and is always in need of new gear so with him running after work when it’s dark, this Mountain Warehouse Men’s Waterproof Rain Jacket High Vis Running Cagoule is a great option at 50% off and it means I’m less anxious that drivers won’t see him! I also pop these SiS Go Hydro, Hydration tablets with electrolytes in my basket as a stocking stuffer seeing they are 50% off as well!
My mother-in-law struggles to keep her flat suitably warm in winter and cool in summer and so next I head to the ‘Certified Refurbished’ hub where professionally checked items are covered by eBay’s Money Back Guarantee. It’s the perfect way to get great deals and also save items from landfill! I find exactly what I’m looking for here: a refurbished Dyson Pure Hot + Cool which is currently 45% off in the eBay Black Friday deals, saving £250!
For my two teenage nieces, I know the best place for bargains will be all things fashion and beauty and so that’s my next stop navigating the Black Friday eBay deals. eBay’s Brand Outlet supports over 200 stylish brands with major discounts across women and men’s clothing as well as shoes and accessories. Everything on the Brand Outlet will be available for £30 or less across the weekend and over Cyber Monday. After this deal, you can still get a fantastic 20% off existing deals until 3rd December.
For my 17-year-old niece who is fashion-obsessed, I’ve spied these gorgeous River Island Women’s Rust Suede Buckle Square Toe Boots that are currently 40% off!
For my 14-year-old niece who is as obsessed with beauty products as her sister is with fashion, I choose Revamp Progloss Volume & Wave Hot Ceramic Styling Brush – Heated Rounded styler which is now £39.99, saving myself 33% off on the full price.
eBay Black Friday Deals for Home
My last stop is, of course, shopping for my home! There are currently 30% off offers across homeware brands too so if you’re looking to upgrade your crockery for Christmas dinner, replace that worn-out sofa for something a bit comfier for guests or thinking of a pair of new champagne flutes to welcome the new year, you’ll find even more bargains here.
My favourite find are these gorgeous Vivo by Villeroy & Boch Group Long Drink Glasses Festive Party Design pack of two glasses because you can never have too much sparkle at Christmas as far as I’m concerned. They’ll be the perfect finishing touch for my tablescape this year and they are 44% off when I buy two sets!
I hope you enjoyed this whistle-stop tour around the best way to find Black Friday deals on eBay! Did you see any that will be on your own wish or gift list this year?
