30 Great Deals at Best Buy, Target, and Other Amazon Prime Day Rivals (Updated)

Note: Prime Day is over, and so are most rival sales. Check our list of remaining Prime Day deals and deals from the final day of Walmart’s sale for the deals that remain. Or read our package of amazing retro tech. As always, we hope we helped you sift through the discounts and find good products.

Prime Day is nearly over, and while Amazon still has plenty of discounts, so do its competitors. We’ve gathered up corresponding deals from Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and other stores. You won’t need a membership to shop these sales, but you should keep in mind that this is just the start of the holiday shopping season. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just over a month away, and we’ll be covering those sales, too.

Note: We strike through items that sell out or rise in price as we update this guide. Discounts sometimes return quickly, so check for yourself. You’ll need a subscription to Amazon Prime to get most of these deals.

Updated October 14: We added new deals, like the Kobo Clara, adjusted prices, and struck through expired deals.

Best Buy Deals

Best Buy is, apparently, starting its Black Friday deals early. There are some good discounts running through the end of today. Just remember that these deals (and more) will reappear next month.

  • Bose QuietComfort 35 II Headphones for $199 ($100 off): These headphones are a little older now, but they’re still just as good as when we first reviewed them. I purchased a pair for my partner one Christmas, and I can attest to the fantastic noise cancellation. This deal is price-matched at Amazon.

  • Beats Solo Pro Headphones for $180 ($120 off): WIRED highly recommends the Beats Solo Pro, even though the headphones charge via a Lightning cable (handy if you use an iPhone). You can save on several colors both at Best Buy and Amazon.

  • Wiz A19 60W Color Smart Bulb 2-Pack for $20 ($8 off): Wiz smart bulbs are budget-friendly and simple. This deal gets you colorful bulbs for the price you’d usually pay for the non-color versions. They work with voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant, but you’ll need to download an app for first-time setup.

  • Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 LTE for $310 ($70 off): We like this fitness wearable, especially for those with Android phones. It has a big face and a better battery life than its predecessor, along with helpful fitness features. This is a deal for the 40-mm LTE model, but the larger size is also on sale. The older Galaxy Watch Active is discounted too, and it’s nearly as capable if you don’t care about the Active2’s digital bezel or slightly better battery life.

  • Crock-Pot 6-Quart Pressure Cooker for $50 ($60 off): What is a sale day without an affordable pressure cooker? Crock-Pots are reliable and indispensable, if you’re doing much more home cooking than you’re used to. This affordable Instant Pot dupe can pressure cook, slow cook, simmer, and saute, as well as a host of other functions. It also comes with a steaming rack and spoon.

  • KitchenAid Stand Mixer for $250 ($250 off): You’ll need a bowl-lift stand mixer if you’re still making loaf after loaf of quarantine bread. They have substantially higher horsepower than the more familiar tilt-head models. This one will last you forever.

  • Dyson Cyclone V10 Stick Vacuum for $400 ($150 off): I (Adrienne) have a million robot vacuums, but nothing will ever match the convenience of a light, modular, wireless stick vacuum that can clean everything from rugs to high ceilings and your car. Dyson makes the best one.

  • iRobot Roomba 960 for $300 ($200 off): When I (Adrienne) first tested the Roomba 900 series, it was a revelation. The rubber brush never got stuck, the suction was powerful, and Dirt Detect sniffed out the gross spots in our carpets with creepy but appreciated accuracy. The only thing I didn’t like was the price, and now it’s much more affordable.

  • Garmin Fenix 5X for $400 ($200 off): The Fenix 5X came out in 2017, but it was the greatest backcountry sports watch the Gadget Lab team had ever put on at the time. If you don’t mind passing up the upgraded battery manager, fall detection, and continuous Pulse Ox monitoring in last year’s Fenix 6 series, this is a good way to save a couple hundred bucks on a great sports watch.
