Watch out Amazon, eBay takes on Prime Day with upcoming Crash Sale

eBay’s upcoming Crash Sale is the latest in David and Goliath-esques tales centered around Amazon. The savings event looks to play off of the possibility that Prime Day could be so popular, Amazon crashes from trying to keep up with the demand. Regardless of the likelihood of any outages, eBay hopes to bring in customers by offering “blockbuster deals that will not disappoint.”

How exactly that’ll materialize for shoppers still has yet to be seen. But in order to actually go toe to toe with Prime Day’s notorious discounts, the online retailer will have to pull out all the stops. Right now eBay says it’ll be taking up to 80 percent off various top brands like adidas, Apple, Dyson, Garmin, Samsung and more. The sale will kick off on July 15 to coincide with Prime Day. eBay notes that free shipping will be available on every order, and no deals will be locked behind a membership paywall, unlike with Amazon’s sale.
