Amazon Prime Isn’t The Only Place With Deals. Here Are Better Alternatives.

Here’s our guide to alternative Prime Day sales that aren’t on Amazon, including options from Walmart, Target, Home Depot and Wayfair.

Prime Day has become a “shopping holiday” of its own. That means there’s stiff competition among brands like Target and Walmart to offer the same or better deals right around the same time as Amazon’s biggest sale of the year.

This year is no exception. Prime Day 2020 runs from Oct. 13 to Oct. 14, bringing with it plenty of alternative Prime Day sales from retailers like Walmart and Target. Target is bringing back its anti-Prime Day “Deal Days” from Oct. 13 and Oct. 14, with early deals on things like laptops. Walmart will also have its “Big Save” sale starting on Oct. 11 until Oct. 15.

Amazon’s Prime Day is exclusive to Amazon Prime members, which is why many anti-Prime Day sales and deals can be shopped by everyone — no membership required.

Of course, our shopping editors will be searching for the best Prime Day 2020 deals. But if you want to see alternatives, we put together a list below of all the other sales we’ve seen, from bigger brands to smaller businesses. We’ll be updating this list as we hear of more deals, so check back soon.
