Walmart, Target Sales Weaken Amazon Prime Day
Target and Walmart has announced that their own sales events tagged “Deals for Days” will hold the same date as Amazon’s Prime Day. The sales event will take place from June 20 through the 23 and will feature “Black Friday-like savings.”
Like the usual Black Friday, retailers will put items across the electronics, toys, home, beauty and fashion categories on sale. Buyers can expect a handful of deals including a $50 discount on a Hisense Roku Smart LED TV and a $20 discount on an 11.6-inch HP Chromebook, and a lot more deals to browse. Buyers can also expect online-only discounts and in-store-only savings.
Meanwhile, Target’s similarly named Deal Days will be live on its website from June 20th through the 22nd, which is a full day longer than its sales events in previous years. The deals will also span across categories and will include food and beverage for the first time. You don’t need any kind of membership to take advantage of Target’s deals, unlike Prime Day sales that are limited to Prime members.
Amazon two days Prime Day event will start on June 21 and end before midnight on June 22 and it serves as a sort of reset for the event, which took place in October (instead of summertime like usual) last year due to the pandemic.
