As all good shoppers know, Jul. 16 is Amazon Prime Day. And even though it’s on a Monday, think of July 2018 as the new Black Friday. Yay!

With the deep discounts that the online mega-retailer has for eager shoppers, other stores with dollar signs in their eyes don’t want to miss out on all the potential buyers out there. Yep. Target, Walmart and Macy’s are also offering super-sale prices that you’ll want to check out.


So yes, Amazon Prime Day is July 16. But the sale doesn’t end there. This year the online retailer is extending deals for 36 hours. That means Amazon’s discounts will overlap with Target’s July 17 sale.

What can expect from Target’s Tuesday sale? To start with, spend $100 on (July 17 only) and get yourself a free six-month membership for Shipt same-day delivery service. As if that’s not enough, Target will have 30 percent off Target-exclusive home brand items, 25 percent off discounts on beauty and personal care items, 30 percent off Target-exclusive home brands for kids, prices up to 30 percent off select baby gear, discounts (up to 30 percent off) Google products and sale prices on select toys.

You can also get $5 of a book purchase of $40 or more and free shipping on next-day Target Restock deliveries (July 17 only). Oh, and if you spend at least $35 online, you can get free two-day shipping.


Walmart doesn’t want to be left out of the sale craziness either. Their summer sale includes discounts and rollbacks on everything to keep you cool—such as above-ground pools, portable air conditioners and fans.

The big box retailer will also have sale prices on home goods, toys, apparel and your favorite electronics (think Black Friday-ish discounts on TVs, tablets, smartphones and more).


Macy’s is celebrating their very own “Black Friday in July” now through Jul. 15. Look for deals across your fave categories (such as clothing, shoes, beauty, jewelry and handbags) in stores and online. You may also qualify for 25 percent off plus free shipping (with a $49 or more purchase).

Well now it looks like you’ll have plenty of July sale options. So if you don’t find it on Amazon, your other favorite retailers might just have a better deal.
