Target vs. Amazon Prime Day: Which Sale Should You Shop?

Historically, Amazon has better Prime Day discounts than any other Prime Day sales. But now that almost every retailer is online and offering deals, that has begun to change.

That being said, there are likely to be some key differences between these two sales. Amazon has an edge over Target in some of the more obvious categories like 4K TV deals and Apple discounts.

Al-in-all, if you only have the capacity to shop one sale on Prime Day, Amazon is going to have more to browse. But if you’re looking for Prime Day beauty deals and electric toothbrush sales, Target’s sale is worth a look. They will also have some great Prime Day Lego deals considering their massive section of popular toys.

Amazon Price Matching

So Amazon, being the retail giant that it is, will often automatically drop prices on products when other retailers do. So for some of the most popular categories like TVs, gaming consoles, and headphones, if Target has a discount, Amazon probably has the same one.

Should you shop Prime Day sales or wait for Black Friday?

We’re most likely looking at a long stretch of discounts leading up to the holiday season, so any rational person would assume there’s no need for urgency here. That being said, getting your shopping done early can help guarantee you get all of your best gifts in time for Christmas.

Another thing to take into consideration is that some retailers might not have prepared enough stock for what awaits them this buying season. We saw this happen with PlayStation 5 pre-orders and Xbox Series X pre-orders in September, and we’ll likely see it again in November as Black Friday and Cyber Monday arrive.

All in all, if you’re hoping to take advantage of Nintendo Switch deals and AirPods sales, historically, you should jump on the first discount you find, no matter where it is.

However, if for any reason you miss these deals, there are always Black Friday Target deals to look forward to.
