30 Great Deals at Best Buy, Target, and Other Amazon Prime Day Rivals (Updated)


Prime Day is nearly over, and while Amazon still has plenty of discounts, so do its competitors. We've gathered up corresponding deals from Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and other stores. You won't need a membership to shop these sales, but you should keep in mind that this is just the start of the holiday shopping season. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just over a month away, and we'll be covering those sales, too. Note: We strike through items that sell out or rise in price as we update this guide.

All the best smart home deals on Google, Alexa, Homekit and more for Prime Day 2020

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Amazon's third-gen Echo Dot is under $20 for Prime Day — its lowest price *ever*


SAVE 81%: Typically $49.99, the third-gen Amazon Echo Dot is on sale for just $18.99 this Prime Day. It also comes with six free months of Amazon Music Unlimited (a $65.97 value), bringing you $78.94 in total savings. After Amazon announced several new Echo devices at its fall hardware event in late September, we had a sneaking suspicion the previous-gen models would get some big discounts for Prime Day -- and boy, did the retailer deliver. To sweeten the deal even further, Amazon is also throwing in six free months of Amazon Music Unlimited (a $65.97 value) on top of that $31 markdown. Altogether, you'll be saving $78.94, or 81%.

Of course Walmart is having a huge sale on the same day as Prime Day


BEST 4K TV DEAL: JVC 55-inch 4K UHD Roku Smart LED TV -- save $151.99 Oddly enough, Walmart is one of the best places to find good Prime Day deals. Walmart's big sale taking place on the same day as the Prime Day kickoff isn't officially affiliated with Amazon, of course -- it's called "The Big Save" but it's not the first year that the monster Black Friday retailer is taking advantage of another spending holiday (even if that holiday technically belongs to its competitor). The Big Save is actually a great chance for Prime Day shoppers to compare prices and ensure that they're getting the most out of their money. WalletHub found that Walmart had a bigger average discount (34.3% off) across sale items on the site than Amazon (25.4% off) during Black Friday 2019.
