eBay Now Comes to the Rescue For Last Minute Father’s Day Shopping

Need a last minute Father’s Day gift but don’t feel like hitting the stores? eBay Now can help if you happen to be located in San Francisco, San Jose or New York City.

The iOS app lets you shop at stores in the area and arrange delivery for the product the same day “in as little as an hour.” This includes products from chain stores including Urban Outfitters, Toys R Us, Macy’s, Walgreens, Home Depot, Target, as well as smaller local businesses. You can search the app for a product, browse through different offerings, retailers and prices. Then hit “Bring it” to have it delivered to you that day for $5.

There is even a father’s day sale. Mobile Commerce Daily has more:

To celebrate the holiday, eBay is offering a $10 off promo code – DADSDAY10 – for purchases made on June 14 – 16. “Our same-day delivery service lets shoppers in San Francisco, New York City and San Jose order a product from a local store and have it delivered in as little as an hour literally anywhere they are in the city,” Mr. [Dane] Glasgow [vice president of mobile and local at eBay] said.

Now you have no excuse not to get Dad a great gift.
