  1. Using the ‘Category’ drop down menu, scroll through the various ‘Seasonal/Promotional’ listings to select the relevant upcoming holiday (let’s use Black Friday and Cyber Monday). Once you’ve found the holiday, select ‘Get Ads.’ This will bring up all ads tagged to that holiday by the merchant. You’re able to narrow your search further, by selecting a specific merchant from the ‘Merchant’ drop down menu or selecting which ‘Ad Type’ you would like (banner, text, etc.).
