Prime Day isn’t just for Amazon shoppers anymore
Good news for bargain hunters and deal shoppers: Amazon Prime Day sales are actually at a variety of retailers this year, with popular big box stores like Walmart and Target getting in on the fun. Walmart+ offers a similar subscription service to Amazon Prime, and subscribers will be treated to thousands of discounted products that ship the same day. Target is offering discounts without any subscription at all for Target Day with some special deals reserved for Red Card holders (its store credit card).
No matter which retailers you shop though, the bulk of the deals will be offered this October 13 and 14, with Walmart’s Big Save event opening early on October 11.
Note: Prices listed were accurate as of press time; pricing fluctuations may occur.
On-trend big-name dresses up to 50 percent off at Walmart
While Target might’ve gotten all the designer clothing press in recent years, Walmart is coming up with its own boutique-style fashions thanks to a partnership with Scoop, the iconic New York-based fashion retailer. This October 11 through 15, Walmart shoppers will be able to get perfect business casual dresses for all their most important video conference calls and pod dates at 33 percent off the already low prices. Cute clothes are only one of the 14 things you’re not buying at Walmart but should be.
Price match just about anything at Target now
If you’re a loyal and devoted Target shopper, the good news is they’re more eager to please you than ever. To prove it, they’re extending their price matching window on any Target purchase from its usual 14 days to anything purchased between November 1 and December 24 this year. That means anything you purchase on Target.com during Target Day will be price matched or adjusted (hello, partial refunds!) through most of October, and then after that, you have basically the entire holiday shopping season to ensure you get the best deals possible. You can request matching from almost any major online competitor including Amazon, BestBuy, Costco, Kmart, Kohls, Diapers.com, Newegg.com, Wayfair.com, and several others. That means you can buy that slow cooker you’ve been pining after and look to price match it after. Discover 14 things you should always buy at Target.
Take up to 25 percent off hot tubs
Believe it or not, many big retailers including Amazon, Home Depot, Walmart, and Sam’s Club have been sold out of hot tubs since the pandemic hit. Social distance encouraged a lot more home spa days, and that made a once luxury-only item skyrocket to the top of just about everyone’s wish lists. This Target Deal Day, the giant retailer is not only promising a variety of models in stock (a major feat in 2020) but also is discounting them by up to 25 percent. Unlike hot tubs, these are the things you won’t be seeing in Target anymore.
Take up to 50 percent off small kitchen appliances
You’ll be able to snag this adorable Instant Pot Lux60 6 Quart Floral Multi-Cooker from the Pioneer Woman collection at Walmart for 50 percent less than its usual price, making it an ideal holiday gift for your wife or floral-loving best friend. The Pioneer Woman collection is exclusive to Walmart and typically ships the same day for Plus members. Check out these other deals you’ll only find on Walmart+.
Up to 30 percent off home office electronics at Target
If you’re looking to upgrade your home office or just order some really great tech gifts earlier than usual, Target Deal Days will be a boon to your wallet and mood.

This Acer KA2 27″ Monitor offers full HD quality and is currently marked down to the cheapest price on the internet instead of its usual $200 price tag.
Over $100 off Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch at Walmart
Track your fitness, sleep, and other lifestyle habits with the Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch, because Walmart’s Big Save sale is offering over $100 off the usual $299 price tag. The watch offers dozens of fun features including four-day battery life, GPS technology, sleep tracking, and more. It also comes in a variety of colors to suit every style and makes a useful gift for men.
Discounted gear for kids
At first glance, this Birdy Boutique Dinosaur Car Seat Poncho probably looks like a family Halloween costume in the making, and sure it could be—but it’s actually a car seat safe coat that keeps children protected. Birdy Boutique’s designs will be significantly discounted on Walmart and shipping will be free through October 15. Find out the 22 things you’re not buying from Target, but should be.
43 percent off best-selling toys for kids at Walmart
It’s time to order those gifts for boys and girls of elementary school age now because this 250-piece magnetic building block tile playset will be marked down by 43 percent during Walmart’s Big Save. It’s a mind-growing STEM activity you’ll feel good about giving, especially when you see how much money you save buying it early in the season.
Ring Indoor Cameras under $60 each
Target Day will be particularly exciting for those concerned about home security, because the Ring Indoor Camera is already marked down to two-for-$119.99 in anticipation of Target Deal Days, with rumors swirling that the price will drop at least another 10 percent by October 13 to go head-to-head with Amazon Prime day deals.
Up to 37 percent off smart TVs at Walmart
It’s time to enhance your movie nights because Walmart’s Big Save is treating shoppers to up to 37 percent off a JVC 55″ Class 4K HDR Roku Smart LED TV. That means you’ll get to stream movies on all your favorite platforms in crystal clear definition at an affordable price. Feel free to shop around, because Walmart’s generous deal runs through October 15, which is just enough time to price shop and compare against Amazon and Target’s best deals.
Up to 25 percent off furniture finds on Walmart
Quick shipping and unbeatable prices are what keep Walmart+ shoppers coming back, and that’s exactly what they’ll get when they shop discounted Walmart Big Save furniture. Zinus, a popular furniture and mattress company with already-low prices, will offer on-trend loveseat sofas at 21 percent off their usual prices through October 15. That means you’ll have the perfect cozy place to curl up with a good book or that new TV you just added to your shopping cart.
Up to $150 off Google home products
While Amazon is busy pushing its lineup of Alexa-driven Echos, bookworm-friendly Kindles, and Fire Sticks, Google will make sure Walmart and Target shoppers are tempted with near-steals on their competing products including Google Home Max, Google Nest Learning Thermostat, and smaller devices. While neither retailer has announced pricing yet, last year the Google Home Max was discounted by $150 and is expected to be matched, or go even lower, this year at Walmart and ship the same day for Plus members.
Save up to 30 percent on graphic sweatshirts
Graphic sweatshirts will be marked down by up to 30 percent during Target Deal Days, which is welcome news for those doing their best, if not coziest, social distancing. Stock up on cheerful basics, uplifting prints, and gifts for teen girls they’ll love to live in. This vintage-style Central Perk sweatshirt is already marked down below $27 and brings all the happiest ’90s feelings right back to your mind.
Up to 20 percent off baby essentials at Target
Target Deal Days will feature 15 percent off select Delta Children and Simmons Kids nursery furniture and mattresses, and up to 20 percent off other baby registry essentials like car seats, strollers, and clothes for little ones. Delta Children Skylar cribs and matching dressers are expected to be part of the 15 percent off promotion, as well as a variety of coordinating mattresses from Simmons Kids.
Save $20 on Nintendo Switch Games
Just a few months ago it was nearly impossible to purchase a Nintendo Switch, nevermind popular games, because they were back-ordered for so many weeks. Nintendo made video game miracles happen though because they released just enough units and accompanying games for gamers to get through another few months of social distancing. Walmart will discount Super Mario Party for Nintendo Switch by $20 this October 11 through 15 to make staying home more fun than ever.
Save $80 on robotic vacuums
Robotic vacuums are some of the best cleaning products for people with allergies, busy schedules, and a lack of desire to spend time actually cleaning. Luckily the Tuzumi Ion robo vacuum will be marked down by $80 during Walmart’s Big Save event and will ship faster than you can make your next mess thanks to Walmart Plus delivery.
Take $30 off select Apple products at Walmart
It’s usually hard to find Apple products on sale, but the Walmart Big Save event will see a $30 discount on the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS with Sport Band from the usual $199 price. That discount is already available in advance but isn’t being advertised, so there’s a good chance other popular Apple products will be marked down as the Big Save event draws closer.
Take $50 off Bose headphones
Another under-the-radar savings gem Walmart is already offering—and will continue to through October 15—is a price reduction on the popular Bose QuietComfort 25 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones II with Google Assistant. They’re the perfect addition to any home where multiple people work, school, and socialize by computer. You can also check out these Prime Day deals that are worth shopping on Amazon.
