If you want to cash in on all of the savings for Amazon Prime Day, the best way to do it is to comparison shop. That’s because the world’s largest retailer won’t be the only store with deals on Prime Day.
These Stores Have Competing Prime Day Sales
Team Clark has been working hard to bring you the latest shopping resources so that you can save money on the items you buy.
This year’s Amazon Prime Day is actually a two-day event set for October 13 and 14. As always, Prime Day prices are available only to members of Amazon Prime. But non-Prime members don’t have to worry about a lack of bargains.
Let’s look at the retailers other than Amazon that are dropping prices for Prime Day:
You can expect deals in the following categories:
Target also says it is also offering “Black Friday pricing throughout the full month of November and extending our Price Match Guarantee.”
The world’s largest brick-and-mortar retailer recently introduced Walmart+ and has gone on a hiring spree to get ready for the holidays. For Prime Day it launched its “Big Save” event, which started on Sunday, October 11 at 7 p.m. (EDT) and runs through Thursday, October 15.
Walmart says the Big Save sale will include Black Friday-like deals as well as free two-day shipping on eligible orders of more than $35.
You can expect to find deals in the following categories:
Best Buy is kicking off Black Friday early with hot deals on October 13 and 14. Many of the sales will come from the store’s Black Friday ad, which has yet to be released.
“The rest of Best Buy’s Black Friday ad, and more opportunities to score Black Friday deals, will come later this month,” the retailer says in a news release.
You can expect to find deals on the following items:
- 70-inch Samsung 4K Smart TV
- JBL Free True Wireless headphones
How To Save Money on Prime Day
Although many items will be discounted, take it upon yourself to search for lower prices. To save money on Prime Day you’ll want to make sure you do the following:
- Comparison shop by going to different websites.
- If you’re buying somewhere other than Amazon, make sure you include the shipping costs in your total when you compare prices.
- Use cash back credit cards so you can get rewarded for shopping.
In addition to comparison shopping, money expert Clark Howard says you don’t want to exhaust yourself shopping on Prime Day. Throughout the holiday season, the deals will keep on coming.
“There will still be some of the best deals happening on Thanksgiving Day and maybe Black Friday,” he says. “It’s going to be a continuous series of sales, starting around Halloween.”
