You soon won't be able to buy a new Chevy Malibu Hybrid (they're being discontinued), but if you think GM's fuel-conscious sedan is the car for you - and you happen to be in NYC today, head on down to Times Square. eBay has been running a series of live game show promotions called "Let's Make a Daily Deal," hosted by actor and comedian Mario Cantone, and wants to go out with a bang. For the last day (today), the grand prize is the aforementioned Chevy Malibu Hybrid. The car will be awarded to a winner of a special bonus game that'll take place during the first round of today's "show." Lots of other stuff - electronics, jewelry, etc. - will be handed out to the 60 contestant, so if you've ever been curious where your eBay seller fees go, now you know. The event starts at 1 p.m.
