A new type of Structured Snippet Ad Extension to help brands push Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These are automated to start showing from 20th November and stop when Black Friday and Cyber Monday have each ended. You get 25 characters to promote the offer and can have different offers for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

It’s an acknowledgement by Google as to the importance of these days. By providing a simple way of adding these offer details to ads, it negates the need to update the main ad copy (and therefore possibly reducing ad relevance). It can be quickly applied to whole accounts or separate campaigns so makes setting up Black Friday and Cyber Mondays offers a very quick process.
