Amazon announced that they would be having a Prime Day with "more deals than Black Friday". The deals will be only for Prime members and we're hoping to see some great discounts. If you aren't already a Prime member, make sure you sign up for a free 30-day trial here!
Not to be outdone, Walmart announced today that they will be offering rollbacks on items as well as some special "Atomic Deals", which will be announced later in the week. Walmart also launched their Shipping Pass, where you can get unlimited free three-day shipping for a $50 yearly membership. They make a jab at Amazon in reference to their $99 Prime price saying, "the idea of asking customers to pay extra in order to save money just doesn't add up for us". The sale page says that new items will be added every hour and they have lowered their shipping threshold from $50 to $35! Check out our Hot Deals page to make sure you really are getting the best price, as we've found some great Walmart deals, and some not so great ones!
This isn't the first time that we've seen Walmart try to compete with Amazon. Last Black Friday season they announced that they would begin price matching Amazon everyday, including Black Friday! Stay glued to our page this week as we continue to cover the sales that both stores will be offering!
Here are a few early deals we noticed:
- Barbie 28" Best Fashion Friend Doll - $25.00
- Gold's Gym Circuit Trainer 36" Mini Trampoline - $29.00
- Haier 2.7 cu. ft. Refrigerator (Virtual Steel) - $79.00
This is good news for fans of walmart online shopping, as a bidding war between two giant retailers can only result in lower prices over all. We don't think these two are even close to done yet either. Expect there to be a ripple effect from July 15th through Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2015.
