Amazon Prime Day has become one of the biggest shopping days of the entire year. The event, which is scheduled for October 13th and 14th, will feature tons of amazing deals for Amazon Prime Members. While we all anticipate seeing millions of shoppers hop online to find insane discounts, stores other than Amazon are looking to get a piece of the action. Here are 7 stores that may rival Amazon on their big day:
The massive company Walmart is kicking off a deal event of its own in October 2020. Walmart’s big sale starts on October 11th at 7 PM EST and extends through October 15th. The multi-billion dollar company is calling this event the ‘Big Save Event,’ which will be held online before and during Amazon Prime Day. Shoppers can expect to see massive savings on a wide variety of items; some of which include:
- Home living
- And much more!
Another awesome feature of Walmart’s Big Save Event is that customers can find extremely low prices on products from both Walmart and its Marketplace sellers.
Sitting alongside Amazon as one of the top online stores in the world, eBay has also joined the party to rival Amazon Prime Day. But while most stores are focused on creating their own sale that competes with Amazon, eBay is throwing a sale only if the Amazon site crashes. eBay is poking fun with this idea, but they speculate Amazon could indeed crash given the influx of online users during this event.
It’s important to note that Amazon did, in fact, crash at the start of Prime Day back in 2018. While this “crash” sale will include amazing deals if a crash does happen, eBay is still offering limited-time specials regardless of what happens on Amazon.com. Ebay’s sale event will occur during Amazon Prime Day sale, October 13-14.
Aside from Amazon’s two-day sales event, Newegg is competing with the online retailer powerhouse by offering special deals all month long. That’s right, Newegg has incredible savings from October 1st to October 31st.
The company is calling this event the ‘Gametober Sale,’ which is jam-packed full of specials that you may not find on Amazon. That’s because these deals are all about gaming! In fact, gamers can expect a 65% markdown on tons of gaming essentials. Here are some sale items you can expect:
- Gaming laptops
- Video games
- And much more!
If you love to game, then checking out this sale event is a must!
Another company involved in the tech scene, Best Buy, is also throwing a massive sale during Amazon Prime Day. Their event is scheduled for October 13-14 and will feature savings on tons of Best Buy products. Buyers can expect to see deals on the following:
- Cell phones
- Video games
- And tons more!

Target’s event, called ‘Deal Days,’ is another sale that will occur during the same exact days as the Amazon Prime Day event. While Target offers this event every single year, the company claims this year will be even bigger than years prior. Unlike Amazon, no membership is needed to shop at Target!
Kohls.com is running a special deal event that runs from October 9th to October 18th. Unlike other stores, Kohls offers deals on everything in their store! If online shoppers make a purchase during the sale, they can expect 15% off their entire order! In addition, the company will also offer special “Daily Wow” deals that pop up randomly throughout the duration of the event.
Academy Sports & Outdoors
