The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and as we get closer to Christmas, retailers will be showcasing some of the best deals on popular gift items. While there are certain advantages to shopping in-stores, I find that the crowds during this time of year can be difficult to navigate, particularly if I have my two small children with me.
I’ve always preferred shopping online, particularly if the items are comparable in price and the shipping costs are reasonable. A couple of months ago, I introduced you to 88hours, a site offering fabulous deals on some of the coolest products on the market…like this Dexton Kids Voiture Classic Pedal Car in Pink that will be on sale very soon.
What is unique about 88hours is the social sharing component. Once you see a deal go live, “like” it and share it (you’ll have 44 hours to do so). If the deal has enough “likes” it will become active and you’ll have 44 hours to purchase that item at 40-80% off the retail price. Thus the reason the site is called 88 hours!
At every 8th deal purchased, the site will sell that item for just 88 cents! Can you imagine getting a $200 item for just 88 cents?
Every day, a new deal will be featured on the site and products include everything from household appliances and home decor to electronics, furniture, and kids’ items.
This week, 88hours reached 88,000 fans on Facebook, and to celebrate they are giving away $88 to 8 fans that can be used to shop on the site. With deals as low as $18 (or 88 cents for every 8th purchase), that money can go quite far! To enter, simply “like” 88 hours on Facebook. If you refer friends to the site, you’ll also receive extra entries towards a bonus prize.
88hours routinely has giveaways so be sure to stay tuned to their Facebook page for the latest.
