Amazon's sale sees competition ramp up with eBay offering AirPods for $99 and more


Although eBay has already had its giant sale last month, it is competing with Amazon's Prime Day sale with a stack of fantastic deals and offers of its own.

The almighty battle for your dollar gets ever fiercer with super sales events, with Amazon's Prime Day sale prompting Big W to have a Click Bonanza sale with great deals, and eBay, who already had a massive sale lasts month, which has come back over this 48 hour period with even more amazing deals

After all, eBay, Big W and others around the world like Walmart in the US don't want to cede 48 hours of sales to Amazon, and so eBay is offering 2nd-generation AirPods for A$99, every hour from 10am, saving a huge $150 off the original price of $249.

That's for the model without the wireless charging case, which goes for $319, but with the best advance in the 2nd-gen AirPods being the much faster connection time and the longer battery life for listening and talk time, $99 is a massive bargain for such great technology.

eBay also promises its eBay Plus can "take advantage of the best deals", promoting its $49 yearly eBay Plus fee, which competes with Amazon Prime membership that also comes with plenty of great inclusions, too.

It's also worth noting that not all deals require eBay Plus membership, so you can still save whether you're an eBay Plus member or not.

In any case, eBay is promising hundreds of additional deals at up to 60% off across tech, gaming, toys and homewares from brands including Dyson, Google and LEGO".

Hero items from eBay’s winter deals from "select sellers" include:

  • Apple AirPods (exclusive for eBay Plus members) - normal price $249, sale price $99, saving of $150
  • Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer - normal price $499, sale price $385, saving of $114
  • Dyson Hot+Cool Fan Heater - normal price $575, sale price $359, saving of $216
  • Google Home - normal price $99, sale price $59, saving of $40
  • Google Home Hub - normal price $177, sale price $99, saving of $78
  • Cybex Mios Stroller - normal price $957.04, sale price $569, saving of $388.04

eBay Australia’s Sophie Onikul said, “We know Aussies love a bargain - especially when it comes to popular items from brands like Apple, Dyson and Google. At eBay we’re proud to offer shoppers unbeatable range and value - with deals that are truly out-of-this-world - all year round.”

eBay reminds us that its eBay Plus offer is "$49 for 12 months" and that "Plus members receive free delivery and free returns on millions of eligible items, free delivery on Coles on eBay orders over $49 (in selected areas) as well as exclusive access to special deals and double flybuys points. Shoppers can sign up for a 4-month free trial here for a limited time only".
