We all know that Prime Day deals are coming up fast but is there a chance that other major retailers like Walmart will also be indulging in their very own sales during Prime Day? While nothing is confirmed just yet, it seems highly likely that Walmart will run its own sale around the same time as Prime Day so we’ve taken the time to look at what to expect from the Walmart Prime Day Sale.
We don’t know yet. Typically, Walmart runs a sale at the same time as Prime Day to compete for business. After all, it doesn’t want Amazon to have a monopoly on discount shoppers. It’s safe to assume this will be the case this year as it has been for previous years but we can’t guarantee what date it will be.
However, it’s very likely that Prime Day starts June 21 and runs until the end of June 22 so if that’s the case, expect Walmart to have its sale at the same time.
Typically, Walmart and Amazon focus on different areas during their sales. While they both have a certain amount of overlap with both retailers typically focusing on sales for a ton of different technology, there are some distinctions.
For instance, Amazon is likely to have better discounts on its own products such as the Amazon Echo range and the Amazon Kindle e-readers. Alongside that though, we’re expecting to see a lot more discounts on home essentials and furniture at Walmart than we’ll see at Amazon. That’s simply because of what Walmart tends to focus on — housewares and other home essentials.
If you’re looking for bedding, new furniture for your home, or those little delights that spruce up your living space, it’s very likely that Walmart will have such items more heavily discounted and attractively priced than Amazon, which tends to focus on gadgets and technology.
No matter what the sales season, Walmart always has fantastic offers on TVs and we’re expecting this forthcoming sale to be the same.
Keep an eye out for big-name brands as well as lesser-known TV brands at cheap prices during the Walmart sale, and don’t be afraid to get in fast. Stock is often limited. Read up on the best TV brands and the best TVs beforehand so you know exactly what to expect.
As well as that, don’t be surprised if you see the likes of the best Instant Pots or best air fryers also on offer as part of the Walmart sales. The retailer loves to keep you up to date with the latest kitchen appliances.
