PayPal Gets Aggressive for the Holidays

As you may know, PayPal is the online mobile payment unit of eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY  ) , which recently rolled out a program that mimics one of this year's biggest trends in retail. That's right -- PayPal has joined the "price-matching" strategy.

The company is setting aside up to $1,000 per customer for the promotion because it  runs through the spend-heavy holiday shopping season. As a business tactic, price-matching is nothing new, but PayPal's decision to offer this is something more typical retailers like Best Buy (NYSE: BBY  ) and Target (NYSE: TGT  )  were not expecting. To get more information on PayPal's aggressive holiday strategy, take a look at the video below.

PayPal is doing a bit of "future-proofing" here, and investors should consider doing the same. Making the right financial decisions today makes a world of difference in your golden years. Don't make the same mistakes as the masses. I urge you to learn about "The Shocking Can't-Miss Truth About Your Retirement."
