PayPal Invites Holiday Shoppers to Kick Off the Season with Cash-Back, Free Shipping and a Small Gift that Makes a Big Impact
SAN JOSE, Calif.--PayPal today announced its 2009 holiday promotions including cash-back, free shipping and huge savings from major retailers. Starting November 3rd and available through January 12th, online shoppers can visit www.PayPal.com/holiday to receive up to 20 percent off, cash-back or free shipping from online retailers such as Zappos.com, Best Buy, Southwest Airlines and Walmart.com.
“The consumer is in the driver’s seat this holiday season, with retailers offering great deals on gifts ranging from the practical to the fun and frivolous,” said Amanda Pires, senior director at PayPal. “By using PayPal, shoppers can find gifts for everyone on their list and still save time and money with free shipping and cash-back throughout the holiday season and into the New Year.”
PayPal is also working with MicroPlace to provide holiday shoppers with a unique gift that helps the world’s working poor. Shoppers who purchase a gift certificate on MicroPlace.com will get a free $20 gift certificate to give to someone else on their list. These gift certificates will provide much needed capital to organizations that provide financial services to poor people around the world. This gift could help someone get access to a loan to start a business, generate income and work their way out of poverty.
