Target Announces ‘Deal Days,’ Its Own Version of Amazon’s Prime Day

This year Prime Day lasts for 48 hours, but Amazon's competitor's aren't sitting still and Target just announced its own two-day sale.

Deals will appear gradually throughout the event from different vendors and some sales will be reserved for Prime members only.

Amazon isn't the only big retailer planning a major sale on July 15 and 16. It has built-in ethernet and wi-fi connectivity and three HDMI ports, making it a great, self-contained media center for all your gaming and streaming needs.

Last up is the Crash Sale, which kicks off during the Hot Deals for Hot Days promotion.

"eBay is primed to deliver exactly what shoppers want during this year's crash (sale)", Jay Hanson, COO of eBay Americas, said. Target is promising more discounts on a larger number of items.

Hot on Target's heels, eBay has just announced its own Prime Day challenger, and amusingly enough, its success hinges on Amazon's ability to keep its website up and running throughout the two-day deal marathon. Prime members can support small and medium-sized businesses this Prime Day by shopping deals from Amazon Storefronts, Amazon Handmade, Amazon Launchpad and more.

The e-retail giant will, of course, have a vast array of deals and discounts on products in the Amazon ecosystem - such as on Kindles, the Echo smart speaker, and likely products including the Spot and Echo Plus - but the sales event also includes discounts on other tech including laptops, consoles, games, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, television sets, and more.

Presented by Amazon Music, the first-of-its-kind Prime Day Concert, which takes place on 10th July at 9pm ET/6pm PST/2am BST, will see performances from Dua Lipa, Becky G and SZA, with Taylor Swift to headline and Jane Lynch (star of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) to host. "Stay tuned as we reveal exclusive savings at Whole Foods Market, thousands of new product launches, as well as world-class entertainment and more, leading up to Prime Day on July 15 and 16". Target held a one-day event last year, which it called "one of our biggest days of the year for online sales".
