Best Buy (US)
Last year, Best Buy’s Bigger Deal event started on June 15 and lasted through June 22, coinciding with the end of Prime Day and we’d expect a similar overlap with Amazon sales this year. You’ll find deals on all kinds of technology, including TVs, laptops, tablets, phones, Apple devices, and more.
Target (US) – ‘Deal Days’
Target has announced its Deal Days event. It starts on July 11, a day before Prime Day. Target hasn’t announced any specific deals yet, but we do know the potential savings in several product areas:
- Up to 50% off technology
- $70 off Apple products
