Target and Walmart Sales Details as Retailers Compete with Amazon Prime Day

Amazon recently announced that its huge Prime Day sale event would take place over October 13 and October 14, but Walmart and Target have both announced that they want in, hosting their own sale events on the same two days.

To make the most of Amazon's deals on Prime Day, you'd need to be a Prime member. But Walmart and Target's deals are open to anyone, meaning consumers will be presented with deals over the course of the retail event.

Walmart Big Save Event

Walmart's Big Save event will begin on Sunday, October 11 at 7 p.m. ET and will end on Thursday, October 15.

There will be deals to be had on electronics, home, toys, beauty, fashion, and more, and orders over $35 for qualifying items will come with free two-day shipping, while some items will be eligible for next day delivery.

A full list of the deals that will be available has not yet been released, but 9to5 Toys reported that Walmart will be offering some great tech deals.

We know that the JVC 55-inch 4K HDR Roku Smart UHDTV will be $248, down from $399, the Super Mario Party for Nintendo Switch will be $40, down from $60, and the Roku Ultra LT 4K Streaming Media Player will be $69 down from $79.

Target Deal Days

Target's Deal Days will take place over the same two days as Amazon's Prime Day: October 13 and October 14.

Target says that this year, the Deal Days will feature more than double the number of deals as last year and that all deals will be on offer across both days.

Most deals will be available through Target's contactless Drive Up and Order Pickup and select deals will be able to be delivered the same day with Shipt.

While the Target Deal Days will take place over two days only, some deals will be available on the Target website from October 5. Additionally, Target will offer Black Friday deals through November, including weeklong discounts and digital deals every day from November 1.

Christina Hennington, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer at Target, said in a news release: "This year, in a holiday season unlike any other, we know it's more important than ever for our guests to get great deals in a convenient and safe shopping environment.

"By kicking off our holiday deals earlier than ever, offering Black Friday pricing throughout the full month of November and extending our Price Match Guarantee, we're letting guests know they don't need to wait or face the crowds to get the best deals, all with no membership fees required."
