Don't Want to Take Your Chances With Overnight Shipping? Use eBay's New Gift Locator

Last Monday alone, FedEx shipped approximately 16 million packages. That’s a whole lot of boxes. And of course, with so many packages being shipped, the likelihood that yours could get lost is pretty darn high. So if you don’t want to chance your husband’s iPad or your kid’s Xbox Kinect getting lost in the mail, here’s a safer way to shop: Gifts Nearby.

This new site from eBay lets you enter your zip code, then tells you what stores in your area have the gifts you’re looking for. Cool, right? From stand mixers to video game consoles, you’ll be able to see what stores have your desired gift in stock and how much each store is selling it for. It’s genius because you can compare prices right from home–no more scanning bar codes in the store.

But wait, it gets better. If the gift you’re eyeing is available at a Best Buy in your neighborhood, you can buy it right online, then just go to your local Best Buy to pick it up. What’s worse then sitting on hold to see if the store actually still has the gift or getting there only to realize someone else just bought the last one?

The clock is ticking. Soon, you won’t even be able to get overnight shipping on your holiday gifts, so here’s your chance to get a leg up on the competition.

Get Started:

Feeling lucky? Here are 5 sites that are offering free overnight shipping for the holidays.
