Do you ever think, Wow, I wish I had more ways to spend my money? Me too. Because being the number one online auction space isn’t enough, the kind folks over at eBay have launched a new online outlet mall, where customers can shop retailers at discounts of up to 65 percent off. “We wanted more of your money, Julie,” eBay told me in an exclusive interview.

What they actually said was: “Shoppers can browse by store, by brand, or by category from a growing roster of dedicated virtual storefronts, offering more than 200 favorite brands and designers.” Participating retailers include Neiman Marcus Last Call, BCBG, Spanx, Brooks Brothers, Reeds Jewelers, Jockey, William Rast, Fila, Timberland, Custo Barcelona — the list goes on and and on.
