Walmart, Target to hold their own sale events alongside Amazon Prime Day – CNET



Amazon’s Prime Day won’t be the only big sale event in October. Walmart and Target this week both announced plans to offer up their own deals during online events that just happen to line up with Amazon annual shopping fest.

CNET revealed last week that Prime Day will happen Oct. 13-14, and Amazon confirmed the sale dates on Sunday.

On Monday, Walmart said it’ll be holding a “Big Save” online event that runs Oct. 11-15. The retail giant said it’ll offer Black Friday-like savings on thousands of items including electronics, toys, beauty items and more. Free two-day shipping will be available on some orders over $35, Walmart said, while some may be eligible for free Next Day deliver or in-store pickup. 

On Tuesday, Target laid out plans for its Deal Days event, which will happen on  Oct. 13-14. Target said the online event will feature deals on hundreds of thousands of items across electronics, home, toys, beauty and more. The retailer is also offering contactless drive up and order pickup on many deals, and said some deals will be eligible for same-day delivery via Shipt. 

More to come.
