Over the years, Amazon Prime Day has become as big as the Black Friday shopping season, and some may argue it is even bigger. During Prime Day, Amazon Prime subscribers can take advantage of thousands of deals and offers with savings on every category imaginable. This year (2021), Prime Day will start on Monday, June 21, at 12:01 a.m. PT/3:01 a.m. ET and will end on Tuesday, June 22 at 11:59 p.m. PT (Wed., June 23 at 2:59 a.m. ET).
To compete with Amazon, major retailers will offer up competitor deals in which their customers can take advantage of deeply discounted prices. Target and Walmart have already announced their competing sales, and you can expect other major retailers like Best Buy and Kohl’s to do the same.
CouponFollow has gathered a list of incredible deals from the best Amazon Prime competitors below.
The single BEST sale you will find to beat Amazon for almost any purchase this year is happening over at eBay. From June 21-27, save an extra 15% off off select Certified Refurbished items from major brands like DeWalt, Acer, Bose, iRobot, Cuisinart, and more. You will also see major competitive pricing on items throughout the sale up to 50% off. Remember, Bay’s Certified Refurbished items all come with a two-year Allstate warranty and are indistinguishable from new but less expensive.

From June 20-22, Target is offering what it’s calling the biggest digital sale of the summer, with hundreds of thousands in discounts on popular categories like home essentials, beauty, toys, electronics, and, surprisingly, food and beverages!
