Walmart’s rival Prime Day sale is live with fantastic deals that you can shop today. The retail giant is trying to compete with the Amazon Prime Day sale by launching its sale two days earlier and offerring can’t-be-missed bargains in a slew of categories.
We’ve rounded up the best Walmart Prime Day deal highlights in multiple categories for you below, or you can use the link above to head straight over to the full sale selection.
Walmart’s best Big Sale offers include the JVC 55-inch HDR Roku Smart TV on sale for just $248, the Beats Solo Pro headphones marked down to a record-low price of $199, and the Acer Chromebook on sale for $549.99 (was $419).

Walmart Big Save deals: what to expect
Walmart has announced that its Big Save sale will span across a wide range of categories, but most notably you can expect to find discounts its selection of tech, gadgets and accessories. That means we’re expecting to see blockbuster discounts on TVs, laptops, headphones, smartwatches, and smart home accessories – at least we’ll need to if Walmart is going to compete with Amazon in the coming weeks.
Smart home deals may be a category to watch, as Amazon traditionally has a tighter hold over this range thanks to its Echo and Fire lineup. Walmart typically offers excellent discounts on Google devices, as well as robot vacuum cleaners and smart TVs over seasonal sales, however, so expect big things if you’re looking to raise the IQ of your house.
However, Walmart’s Big Save deals will also likely stretch across a full range of in-demand items like TVs and laptops. We tend to see cheaper models leading Walmart’s headline deals year round, so if you’re looking for a budget display or a cheaper Chromebook or laptop, you might be in for a treat over the next few weeks.
Plus, we’re seeing early signs that the Nintendo Switch is in stock, and with Walmart offering some recent offers on accessories and games it looks like the retailer is gearing up to satisfy those Nintendo cravings as well.
Walmart vs Amazon: where should you shop this Prime Day?
If you’re looking to divide your time between Amazon and Walmart’s sales this month, you’ll want to make sure you know exactly what you’re looking for at each retailer.
Cheaper TV deals are traditionally stronger at Walmart, so budget brands like Sceptre and Hisense may do better here. However, if you’re looking for a Fire enabled TV you’ll want to stick with Amazon’s Insignia and Toshiba monopoly. If you’re shopping in the higher price ranges – for a QLED or OLED, for example, there’s a bit more of an even split. We typically tend to see price matching getting more competitive once you move past the $600 mark, though, so keep an eye on both retailers here.
If you’re after a laptop, you’ll find plenty of choice at both retailers. Amazon does offer a wider range of machines, and typically shines in the mid-range category ($500 – $700). If you’re shopping cheaper, you might have a better time finding the best deals on Walmart’s online site, but again we’d keep an eye on both retailers consecutively here. We are, however, dropping all the best Walmart Big Save deals right here as well.
It’s safe to assume that Amazon will offer the better smart home deals on its range of Echo devices, and may even clinch the lead in other smart gadgets thanks to its hold on brands like Eufy and Ring. However, Google products don’t appear at Amazon, and so you’ll be much better off shopping at Walmart if you’re outside of the Alexa ecosystem.
All in all, there’s likely to be some price match wars occurring over the next few weeks – and it all works in your favor. With a little competition chasing them to the Black Friday finish line, Amazon looks set to offer some excellent prices on Prime Day, but Walmart will have to match or better them if it wants to win its first fight with its Big Save sale.
