SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK) is celebrating the shopping website's 16th birthday with its largest annual Overstocktober event, being held Oct. 1 through Oct. 16.
The online retailer has pumped up its traditional birthday sales event to mark the birthday milestone, with savings of 16 percent on its most popular categories, including furniture, jewelry, garden and patio, bedding and bath, and home décor. There are also a number of specially selected $16 deals, along with a Daily Deals section with deeply discounted products across a number of categories.
"Without the support of our loyal customers, we wouldn't have made it past our first birthday," said Overstock.com President Stormy Simon. "To be still standing on our 16th birthday, able to share our celebration with everyone, shows that whether it's 1999 or 2015, savvy online shoppers are finding quality and value they can trust at Overstock."
Throughout Overstocktober, customers will have a chance to win prizes through Daily Dig, an onsite product scavenger hunt. A clue will be posted every day hinting at a product or category that is being featured as that day's Daily Dig. Once a customer solves the riddle and clicks on the product, he or she will see a Daily Dig icon appear on the product page. Selecting that icon allows him or her to enter to win a separate prize for that day, and every entrant is automatically in the running for the grand prize of $1,000, awarded at the conclusion Overstocktober. Official rules, terms and conditions can be found on the Daily Dig page.
In addition to free shipping, special offers and first look at new deals, Club O Gold members will receive increased loyalty rewards of 16 percent on qualifying purchases.
