alternative amazon prime deals
Amazon is not the only retailer offering big discounts on a variety of goods on July 12. Walmart has come out with its own array of tempting offers, and is taking a swipe at Amazon’s Prime sign-up prerequisite in the process. “Walmart is known for everyday low prices, and when we have a special price, it isn’t just for a fleeting moment,” Walmart wrote in a blog post. Furthermore, the retail giant is currently offering a free 30-day trial of ShippingPass, which gives consumers unlimited two-day shipping. And if you’re already a subscriber, you’ll get an extra month for free.

Starting July 12, HTC is also offering a pretty sweet deal of its own.

We’ll be updating this post with the best deals, so keep checking back.
