Walmart launches its Amazon Prime Day counterattack with thousands of deals

Walmart has launched a counterattack against Amazon Prime Day. AP

  • Walmart is offering thousands of deals online to counter Amazon Prime Day.
  • Amazon launched Prime Day in 2015, and it’s now one of the company’s biggest shopping events of the year, behind Cyber Monday. Amazon is holding the 48-hour event on July 15 and 16 this year.
  • Walmart, Target, Macy’s, and hundreds of other retailers offer discounts every year to rival Amazon’s annual shopping event. Target is offering “deal days,” what it says will be its biggest sale of the summer.

Walmart is hoping to steal some fire from Amazon Prime Day.

The retailer is releasing thousands of “special buys” and “rollbacks” — which is Walmart’s term for discounts — on Walmart.com between July 14 and July 17. Deals include discounts of more than $100 on items like the HP 15.6-inch HD Touch Display Laptop and the Dyson Multifloor Bagless Upright Vacuum.

Walmart’s discounts coincide with Amazon’s fourth annual Prime Day, a 48-hour sale that started Monday.

This isn’t the first time that Walmart has offered discounts to rival Amazon Prime Day. The company, along with hundreds of other retailers, including Target, eBay, and Macy’s, now offers discounts every year around the annual shopping event. Analysts have started referring to this widespread promotional activity as “Black Friday in July.”

This year, Target is offering “deal days,” what it says will be its biggest sale of the summer, on July 15 and July 16 to rival Prime Day. eBay is offering discounts starting July 1, along with a “crash sale,” which will feature special discounts if Amazon’s site crashes on Prime Day.

About 70% of consumers plan to shop Amazon during the July sales events, while 44% plan to shop Walmart, 40% plan to shop Target, and 24% plan to shop Best Buy, according to a survey by Bazaarvoice, a retail consulting firm.

Amazon Prime Day will last 48 hours this year, which is longer than ever before. This will turn up the competitive pressure on its rivals, according to Moody’s vice president Charlie O’Shea.

“Amazon’s announcement that its annual Prime Day promotion now requires ‘pluralizing’ as it will be two days this year, running July 15 and 16, following 2018’s 36 hour ‘day’, will make an already acutely-competitive retail environment even tougher,” O’Shea said in a recent note to clients. “Making this even tougher, Walmart and Target will react, further turning up the competitive heat.”

Walmart is jumping Amazon, launching a summer sale just one day ahead of Prime Day, the e-commerce behemoth’s biggest sale of the year.

The biggest retailer in the world’s sale starts on Sunday and lasts through Wednesday, offering — similar to Amazon — free two-day shipping orders over $35. Prime Day, meanwhile, begins Monday and last through Tuesday.

Like Amazon, just about everything will be on sale at Walmart, from gaming devices to smart home gadgets.

Prime Day, which is when members of the subscription service can find special deals on the company’s website and in Whole Foods store, first began in 2015. It’s turned into a massive shopping event since then.

Last year, Amazon said its Prime Day was the “biggest in history”, as prime members purchased more than 100 million products during the sale. And in 2017, the company said its sales grew more than 60 percent — breaking a record at the time, and surpassing Amazon’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales combined.

The popularity of the event has left other retailers scrambling to find ways to compete.

Target will also join the sale frenzy this week, running “deal days” on Monday and Tuesday, the same dates as Prime Day. Target said it will offer 40 percent off some furniture and 30 percent off some cookware and small appliances. That’s in addition to other deals on toys, sporting goods and bedding.

In mid-May, Walmart said it would offer shoppers the option to have their online orders delivered the next day.

Starting on Sunday, July 14, Walmart shoppers are also able to snag the bestselling Dyson Multifloor Bagless Upright Vacuum for $154 compared to a previous “Rollback” price of $179.99 (and a regular list price of $279).

Among the Walmart deals that went live early, there’s the HP 15.6″ HD Touch Display Laptop for $419 — down from $599.99 normally.

These online-only deals reflect some pretty huge discounts off the list prices, and they fit within a couple of categories where retailers have been competing fiercely: laptop deals and home goods deals, with big brand names consumers want. There are plenty of TV deals at Walmart competing with Amazon Prime Day too.

Last year around this time, Walmart’s TV deals were sometimes cheaper than the prices on Black Friday, and some of those models are even cheaper right now. A Sceptre 50-inch 4K LED TV with a list price of $399.99 was on sale last summer for $229.99, and it was down to $209.99 when we last checked.

Meanwhile, a 55-inch RCA 4K LED TV with a list price of $700 is now priced at $249.99 (versus $289.99 during last year’s mid-summer sale at Walmart).

Overall, we are seeing similar deals (or better) to the ones Walmart ran online last year in other product categories. In 2018, Walmart.com shoppers could score deals on smart home devices like the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max. These devices compete with Amazon’s Echo line of virtual assistants, which are expected to be among the Prime Day best-sellers, and naturally these competing smart home devices are among Walmart’s deals.

For example, there’s the Google Nest Hub smart speaker, on sale right now for $79 (down from $149).

Plenty of popular brand names in the home goods category are on sale at Walmart, just like they have been on Prime Day and Black Friday sale. There are great deals on robot vacuums, high-end blenders, mixers, and air fryers from the likes of Roomba, Cuisinart, and KitchenAid. We spotted several of these items on sale early, such as a Cuisinart Elemental 8 Cup Food Processor at a Rollback price of $64.99 ($99.95 regularly).

Of course, no major retail event is complete without a shoutout for America’s favorite countertop appliance, the Instant Pot. Walmart’s Instant Pot deals are usually a little different from Amazon Prime Day deals because Walmart also sometimes sells the LUX series rather than the DUO line that Amazon primarily offers. But cooks and foodies love both versions.

When it comes to Instant Pot, Walmart got a jump on things this year, rolling out Instant Pot deals as early as last month, like the the six-quart Instant Pot DUO60 on sale for $59.95, compared to $99.95 at regular price.

This year, there are some amazing Instant Pot deals from Walmart, Amazon, Macy’s, Target, and Kohl’s, among other big retailers.

Walmart.com is having a big sale online from July 14 through July 17 with thousands of special buys. The timing coincides with Amazon Prime Day and Target Deal Days making this an excellent time to score deals that will rival Black Friday prices.

According to businessinsider.com, a Walmart spokeswoman confirmed that they are “planning to release thousands of “special buys” and “rollbacks” on Walmart.com between July 14 and 17.”

This sale is clearly in competition with Amazon, Target, Macy’s, Kohl’s and other retailers who have already started offering deep discounts over a week before Amazon Prime officially begins.

The article indicates that there will be discounts on the HP 15.6-inch HD Touch Display Laptop and the Dyson Multifloor Bagless Upright Vacuum in addition to the thousands of other deals they will be offering.

Once the Walmart sale is up and running, we’ll let you know and share the hot deals.

Amazon Prime Day: Amazon has been offering multiple early Prime Day deals each day and will continue to do so until the highly anticipated 2-Day Prime Day event on July 15 & 16. See all the early Prime Day deals at Amazon.com HERE.

Target Deal Days: Target is already releasing a daily early Deal Days offer each day leading up to their big sale on July 15 & 16th. You can see those deals on Target.com HERE.

Here’s how Amazon Prime Day’s deals stack up against sales at Walmart, Target and Best Buy

As more retailers look to steal Amazon’s thunder, it’s getting harder for consumers to spot the best deals.

More than half of consumers (52%) will put off making a purchase in anticipation of deals on Amazon Prime Day AMZN, +7.38%, but those deals are getting harder to spot. The popularity of Amazon Prime Day — the annual sales event that will take place this year on July 15 and 16 — has spurred other retailers to seek out a piece of the action.

Read more: What NOT to buy on Amazon Prime Day

Target, Kohl’s and Best Buy are all holding sales on July 15 and 16; Walmart’s will start on July 14 and run through July 17.

As part of the Kohl’s promotion, consumers can earn $10 in “Kohl’s Cash” for every $50 they spend, on top of the deals being offered such as up to 60% off swimwear.

‘A lot of retailers are offering almost identical prices.’

Some of Walmart’s best deals include the HP 15.6” HD Touch Display Laptop for $429 HPQ, -0.98% ($150 off) and the Dyson Multifloor Bagless Upright Vacuum for $154 ($125 below list). Other Walmart-owned e-commerce sites, including Bonobos, Hayneedle.com, and Shoes.com will be offering sales of up to 75% their items.

One of the deals Amazon has heavily promoted — Toshiba’s 43-inch 4K Fire TV TOSYY, -2.59% for just $200 — is actually a third-party deal being offered by Best Buy, so you can get the same deal directly from Best Buy.

Target’s sale will include discounts up to 50% off in various categories including home, apparel and toys.

All this competition benefits the consumer, said Kristin McGrath, shopping expert and editor for Offers.com and BlackFriday.com JCOM, -3.28%, because retailers will work hard to price-match each other, particularly as Amazon reveals its own pricing as Prime Day unfolds.

But while consumers benefit in the form of lower prices, it can become harder to spot which deal is the best. “A lot of retailers are offering almost identical prices,” McGrath said. “One retailer might give itself a bit of an edge by matching Amazon’s price and then offering a promo code or attaching a gift card to it.”

Don’t miss: Is Amazon Prime worth its new $119 price tag?

Here’s what consumers need to know about scoring the best deals during these sales events:

Where Amazon isn’t the cheapest

There are some categories of products where stores like Walmart and Target will likely offer better deals.

One is a category that Amazon is heavily promoting ahead of Prime Day: School and dorm-room supplies. While Amazon is offering discounts (up to 30%) on thousands of items, other retailers instead typically offer blanket discounts for the entire category. Office Depot ODP, -1.77%, for instance, is offering 20% all regular-priced office and school supplies, though some exclusions apply.

“If you’re looking for dorm-room furniture and school supplies, those category-wide flat-percent discounts that other retailers are offering are going to be more competitive,” McGrath said. Consumers may also want to wait altogether on purchasing these items, as they are typically discounted more heavily later in the summer.

Here are two other categories where other retailers will likely beat Amazon’s prices:

Summer apparel: Amazon’s own line of bikini separates currently starts at $8 per piece. That’s cheaper than Target, where bathing-suit separates start at $12, but more expensive than Walmart where they start at $5. Moreover, card-holders at other retailers can see additional savings. Kohl’s Charge customers receive additional discounts ranging from 15% to 30% during its July sales event. Plus other retailers, like Kohl’s, have coupons that consumers can stack on top of the discounts to fetch even greater savings on these items. Discounted bathing-suit separates start at $10 at Kohl’s — but when you factor in the extra 30% off for Kohl’s card-holders the price is likely to drop below Amazon’s price.

Home goods: Walmart and Target typically offer the best deals on items like home furnishings and décor, said Janet Alvarez, a personal-finance expert at Wise Bread. Shoppers also should look out for other retailers that are offering flash sales over the next week. Macy’s, for instance, ran a limited-time sale on Friday offering 60% dinnerware and glassware from Hotel Collection, Martha Stewart and other brands.

Smartphones: For most of the year, Amazon’s prices on unlocked, name-brand smartphones can be very competitive. That’s not the case during Prime Day though, McGrath said. At Walmart, consumers can get a bundle that includes an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 005930, -1.40%, Echo Spot speaker and Samsung Smart Home system for $720, Offers.com found. Comparatively, Amazon is expected to offer a Galaxy S10 with a $100 gift card for $800.

How retailers’ prices compare on big-ticket items

Amazon’s prices are most competitive on popular, big-ticket items, according to an analysis of these products from Offers. It projects that Amazon will offer a 50-inch Samsung 4K high-definition television for under $300. Most other retailers are selling that same item for around $330. The chart below shows some of the products where Amazon’s pricing will likely be the cheapest.

Notably, Amazon won’t necessarily offer better prices on some of its own devices, including the Echo line of smart speakers. Offers.com anticipates the third generation Echo Dot will cost the same at Amazon, Target and Best Buy.

And if brand isn’t a major concern for shoppers, other retailers almost certainly will offer better pricing on items like laptops. While shoppers will be able to find 11-inch laptops for $150 on Amazon, Dell’s DELL, -1.24% laptop deals start at $129.

A game plan for scoring the best deals

Here are some tips from shopping experts to identify which deals are steals and which are duds.

Come in with a list: The easiest way to avoid falling for deals that are, indeed, too good to be true is to pay attention only to sales on items you need, Alvarez said. Identify the items you want to shop for and determine what their pre-sale prices are. If you do this, you’ll be better prepared to scoop up the best deal — especially when it comes to the extremely limited “flash” or “lightning” sales some stores offer during sales.

‘Think about whether you have the comfort and have the amount of time required to send an item back.’

Decide whether you prefer shopping in person: There are pros and cons to shopping in-person versus online. Brick-and-mortar stores will have more limited inventory and may not adjust sales prices as quickly as retailers do online. However, there’s an advantage to seeing and touching something before buying. Plus, returning online purchases can be a hassle. “Think about whether you have the comfort and have the amount of time required to send an item back,” Alvarez said.

Keep the cost of shipping in mind: When comparing Amazon to other companies, be sure to read the fine print of their shipping policies. While companies like Walmart and Target have ramped up their next-day shipping policies to compete with Amazon, you often need to have spent a certain amount to get free shipping. And Prime Day deals are only available to members of Amazon’s Prime program, which currently costs $119.99 a year, so don’t forget to factor that in for the long run. (You can also access Prime Day deals by using a 30-day free trial.)

Take advantage of price-comparison tools: There are multiple tools and apps out there that compares prices across retailers. Capital One COF, -2.32% acquired the online shopping tool Wikibuy in 2018, which is completely free for the bank’s customers. Wikibuy can be used as a standalone app or as an internet browser extension. Other tools include the Google Shopping GOOGL, -1.48%, PriceGrabber and the Honey browser extension. Additionally, sites like CamelCamelCamel and The Tracktor compare prices historically for Amazon, showing whether an item is cheaper on Prime Day versus other times of the year.

Just like Prime Day, these countersales run 48 hours — with some offers popping up just for a bit before returning to full price. Keep this post bookmarked and check it regularly to see the best the deals you can find from other the retail giants.

eBay has already mocked the e-retailer with its own “Crash Sale.” eBay’s variation of Prime Day is a three-week sales marathon which has already begun, and other vendors are also keen to get in on the action and try to take a slice of the sales pie by offering their anti-Prime Day sales alternatives.
