ICYMI, Amazon Prime Day 2022 arrived this past summer (July 12 and July 13), with two full days of endless deals across all product categories, from pricey tech gadgets to luxury beauty products. Prime Day is considered the “Black Friday in July” because it’s basically the biggest shopping event of the year before the pre-holiday deal season rolls in come November. And, starting today, the retailer launched its second biggest shopping extravaganza, the Prime Early Access Sale, which runs now through October 12.

Following Amazon’s lead, plenty of other major retailers and coveted brands will also be holding Prime-Day-adjacent (and pretty massive) sitewide sales during Prime Day week, offering plenty of doorbuster deals on big-ticket items like TVs and AirPods, along with ample opportunities to stock up on new home decor, fashion, skincare — you name it — as well as plenty of opportunities to support AAPI-owned, Black-owned, and small businesses as well.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up a few Amazon Prime Day alternative sales to shop this week, along with a few discounted items we’re already prepping our carts with. Oh, and make sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll be popping in to add updates and additional sales to shop as they become available.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Walmart, HSN and QVC are STYLECASTER sponsors, however, all products in this article were independently selected by our editors. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

Walmart New Rollbacks & More

Walmart may not be throwing a dedicated fall sale, but that hasn’t stopped the retailer from offering comparable discounts to that of Prime Day. Its ‘Red Rollbacks’ are temporary price reductions on a variety of items, many of which are bound to go fast over the next several days.

Walmart Deals

Walmart dropped plenty of discounts on hot ticket items, including smart TVs and Shark handheld vacuums. Shop over 1,000 deals during Prime week—you’ll likely save more over the next several days by perusing Walmart’s unbeatable markdowns than you thought possible.

Target Early Black Friday Deals

Target has already released some early Black Friday deals, competing with Amazon’s blowout shopping event. Unlike Amazon Prime Day, however, Target’s promotions do not require a membership or subscription to shop, making it a good alternative for non-Prime members. Target’s early sale allows shoppers to score Black-Friday bargains across the categories online, except way ahead of schedule.
