DENVER, July 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — If retailers have learned anything from the Black Friday phenomenon, it’s this: the biggest “retail holidays” don’t always fall on red-letter days, and they don’t necessarily belong to just one retailer. Amazon Prime Day is the perfect example: the massive sale’s maiden voyage in 2015 not only drove dramatic increases in the company’s own unique site visits; a variety of other online retailers also reaped the rewards of the high-traffic day by offering their own deals. Now trailing Black Friday, Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday as the fourth-largest retail “holiday” in the country, Amazon Prime Day officially belongs to the consumer–and eBags is ready to celebrate this July 12 with up to 85% off.

In preparation for summer’s biggest shopping day, eBags has negotiated unprecedented savings with some of their most popular brand partners–including Delsey, Kenneth Cole Reaction, Travelers Choice, Samsonite and more. The limited-time Extreme Deals section of the site will offer smart shoppers the opportunity to score up to 85% off a carefully curated collection of popular items. Sales forecasts are extremely favorable, as shoppers are unlikely to find quality gear at such deep discounts anywhere else.

Mike Edwards, eBags CEO, remarked, “eBags has the largest collection of travel luggage, backpacks, and accessories on the web. We are excited to announce our largest cyber summer event ever, just in time for back to school. During this 48-hour period, we will showcase incredible savings and Extreme Deals for the core traveler as well as the student. It’s the single can’t-miss event of the summer!”

In addition to the Extreme Deals section, eBags will continue the company’s longstanding commitment to strong customer relationships by offering eBags Rewards members the opportunity to enjoy 20% off any product on the site–including 20% extra Rewards Points on every purchase. The eBags Social Team will also showcase the company’s popular eBags Brand products with Facebook Live giveaways every hour throughout the workday. The company’s fans and followers will have the chance to win a Lifeboat Quick Charge Portable Battery, a Savvy Laptop Tote, an eTech Mother Lode 25″ Wheeled Duffel, a set of the immensely popular Packing Cubes, and much more.

Peter Cobb, co-founder of eBags, said, “In our 17-year history, we have become a one-stop shop for all things travel–and we’re equally as popular with students and families during the back-to-school season. We’re proud to be the place where our customers’ journeys begin, and we hope this event will help them stock up for summer, school and beyond.”

The eBags Amazon Prime Day offerings, including the curated Extreme Deals section and site wide Reward Days discounts and perks, go live at 12:01AM on July 12, 2016.
