Instant Gratification with eBay Now

ebaynowJust in time for Back to School, I’ve discovered an amazing service called eBay Now!  The service, currently available to shoppers in San Francisco, San Jose, the Bay Area Peninsula and New York City, including Queens and Brooklyn, lets you order products from a local store and have them delivered to your door by a valet in as little as an hour.   The first few days back at school can get pretty crazy with getting acclimated to the new classroom, new classmates, back to school routine, start of homework, etc.,  Even the best prepared moms and dads don’t always remember to purchase everything their kid needs for the new school year.  You can purchase products from back-to-school favorites like Target, Office Depot, Walgreens, Toys R Us, Macy’s and RadioShack. eBay’s new same day delivery service, eBay Now brings the convenience, speed and value.

Screen Shot 2013-08-16 at 8.09.18 PMMy absolute favorite part about this new service, starting next week, shoppers can make a difference by matching the value of every eBay Now purchase up to a total donation value of $15,000 to The Fund for Public Schools in New York City. All purchases made by shoppers in New York City, Brooklyn and Queens through eBay Now using the promo code NYCSCHOOLS between August 19th and September 2nd will result in a dollar-for-dollar donation from eBay Now. Even sweeter, the delivery for their order during those two weeks will be FREE!

Visit to see if they deliver to YOUR area!  eBay Now is available as an app for iOS and Android and can be accessed on desktop and mobile devices.


To take advantage of this amazing social good movement, we’re giving away a $25 Gift Code to (1) Lucky Mom Confessionals reader in the New York City area, including Queens and Brooklyn to try eBay Now.  Just leave a comment with your must have back to school item!  A winner will be selected via  Giveaway ends Sunday, August 18,2013 at midnight.
