eBay Starts The Black Friday Deals Early In 2013

eBay is offering a way to get Black Friday deals without having to trample other shoppers.

The online auction site is offering daily sales this week of all kinds of items, from tech to toys to clothing. The deals start on Thursday, and each lasts one day or until the item sells out. eBay's plan is similar to what Amazon has been doing for Black Friday this year.

eBay is releasing 4 deals at 8 AM PST each morning from Thanksgiving day through Cyber Monday, and more sale items will be added as old ones sell out. Each purchase comes with free shipping, and all of the items have fixed prices, rather than being up for auction.

eBay has a lot to live up to, as the site did particularly well on Cyber Monday last year, sending its stock to its highest price since 2005.
