Best buys at eBay’s first mega sale

There's a lot going on in the online shopping space at the moment.

Amazon Prime and eBay Plus are battling it out in the race to secure the online shopping dollar.

The good news is, this means some rock solid bargains for savvy buyers.

Case in point, eBay has announced it will host its first ever shopping event, called "Plus Weekend".

Kicking off on Saturday 23 June and running until Sunday 24 June, Plus Weekend "offers members of eBay's shopping membership program 'eBay Plus' a 48-hour window to access the biggest savings and best deals ever seen across the eBay platform".

Members will get up to 72% off 15 million new items across ebay.com.au (more than 30,000 retailers are involved, including Myer, Target and The Good Guys).

There will be an extra special price on the latest Dyson stick vacuum.

In addition there will be 12 "mega deals" which will be revealed hourly across the weekend, while stocks last.

One of these deals will be their best price ever on the new Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute+ vacuum cleaner (news.com.au will reveal the price of this exclusively at 12.01am Saturday).

EBay Australia and New Zealand chief marketing office Julie Nestor said: "We know deals and free delivery are two of the most important factors for loyal eBay shoppers, so we've rewarded Plus members with their very own annual shopping holiday.

"Black Friday and Cyber Monday have taken the world by storm, so it's exciting to be the first marketplace to offer an exclusive event for the Australian online retail industry."
