Amazon isn’t alone in reportedly destroying unsold goods. Nike, Burberry, H&M and others have also come under fire for torching their own products.

Amazon is not the only company that has been reportedly destroying unsold goods.

Amazon came under fire this week after a former employee told ITV, a British news channel, that employees at a warehouse in Scotland were instructed to destroy 130,000 unsold and returned items in just one week – totalling more than a million items per year.

But Amazon is far from the only offender.

Brands including Burberry, Urban Outfitters, H&M, Nike, JCPenney, Michael Kors, Eddie Bauer, and Victoria’s Secret have all been accused of doing the same, according to various reports in recent years.

Burberry came clean about burning clothes and said it “used specialist incinerators that harness energy from the process.” The destroyed goods totaled about $37 million, compared to Burberry’s revenue of $3.8 billion that year.

“Burberry has insisted it’s recycling the clothing into energy, except the energy that is recouped from burning clothing doesn’t come anywhere near the energy that was used to create the garments,” Timo Rissanen, an associate dean at Parsons School of Design and a professor of fashion design and sustainability told Vox in a 2018 interview.

The amount of garments that people have been buying annually has been steadily increasing since the early 2000’s. Insider previously reported that the fashion industry makes up “10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes river streams.”

Chanel and Louis Vuitton have also participated in the burning of merchandise. Richemont, the Swiss company behind brands like Cartier and Montblanc, said in 2018 it had destroyed more than $500 million worth of watches to keep them out of the hands of resellers.

In response to ITV’s reporting, an Amazon spokesperson told Insider that no clothes were sent to landfills, but “as a last resort,” some may be sent to “energy recovery.”

“We’re working hard to drive the number of times this happens down to zero,” Amazon said.

As the big retailers go to war on prices during Amazon’s Prime Day 2021 sale event, we’re seeing some tempting discounts from competing events like Walmart’s Deals for Days. The big sale has another day to go, but some of the best TV deals will likely sell out. You can find discounts on TVs from LG, Samsung, TCL, and more.

We’ve highlighted some of the best Walmart TV deals right now, with displays that range in size from just 32 inches all the way up to 65 inches. If you’re in the market for a new TV make sure you check out the best Prime Day 2021 TV deals at Amazon, too.

Best Prime Day 2021 Walmart TV deals

It’s not often that you get money off the best 4K TVs or the best OLED TVs, but there are some good panels on offer here, and discounts on some of the best cheap TVs for anyone with a limited budget.

How to shop for a TV

Picking the right television for your needs can be difficult. When it comes to budget-friendly displays, you can find HDTVs for as low as $100 in smaller screen sizes. On the high end, premium 65-inch 4K TVs can cost $1,500 or more. Flagship 8K TVs can even sell for over $10,000.

Buyers who prioritize picture quality will want to go for a 4K TV with at least a 65-inch screen. The best 4K TVs feature an OLED panel or an advanced LED screen with a feature called local dimming. These technologies enable the best contrast, deepest black levels, and brightest images for gorgeous high dynamic range (HDR) picture.

Though companies use different terms to describe their flagship models, in general, shoppers who focus on picture quality should look for TVs branded as OLED, QLED, Neo QLED, Quantum, NanoCell, and QNED.

People who just want a simple TV for casual viewing, however, will be better off with a smaller display using an affordable LED screen without advanced image features. Though picture quality won’t be as good as more expensive TVs, there is plenty of solid budget LED TVs, including affordable sets that include 4K resolution and reliable smart TV streaming.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Prime Day 2021 is live through June 22.

Will Walmart hold a sale during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Walmart is holding its Deals for Days event now through June 23. It started a day before Prime Day and lasts one day longer.

What deals does Walmart have during Prime Day 2021?

Here are some deals you can expect in the next few days:

How will Walmart Plus membership play into Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Right now, there aren’t any event-specific perks that Walmart Plus members will get. However, they will reap the same benefits they do year-round when shopping the sale, from free same-day delivery to gas discounts to the newly-added Rx for less.

If you’re interested in trying the membership, there’s a 15-day free trial. If you sign up now, you’ll be covered during the Deals for Days event.

15-Day Free Trial (small)

Are there benefits to shopping from Walmart during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

The first major benefit to shopping from Walmart during Prime Day is that you don’t need a membership to get the deals. If you are already a member of Walmart Plus, then that means you can enjoy free two-day shipping on your orders.

Another perk is that Walmart has many physical stores where you can pick up your order if you don’t want to wait to receive your package at home.

Amazon Prime Day, on the other hand, is only for Prime members and access to the event is one of many membership benefits. Amazon offers a 30-day free trial if you want to access Prime Day deals, in addition to Walmart deals, this week.

Discounts on the best 4K TVs tend to be scarce as retailers use events to clear their stock of cheaper panels and older technology, but you can find some of the best cheap TVs for even less than usual. There are also some deals on large panels from big names like Sony, but sadly the best OLED TVs are cheaper elsewhere.

Walmart, Target, and Best Buy are offering rival sales during Amazon Prime Day. Here’s all the info, plus what deals we love so far.

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

Walmart+ Delivery Unlimited
  • Amazon Prime Day, which will fall on June 21 and June 22, has become another Black Friday.
  • As a result of Prime Day’s success, many retailers offer their own competing sales.
  • Below, you can check out sales from competing retailers, including Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Amazon Prime Day celebrates its seventh year in 2021. What started as a one-day shopping event in July 2015 is now a multi-day affair that sees a wide range of stores hosting competing sales.

When Amazon Prime Day debuted in 2015, Walmart – Amazon’s largest competitor – held its own major sales event the same week. Since then, several other retailers joined what’s developed into the largest shopping event of the year outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. With over 150 million US shoppers with Prime memberships spending their money at Amazon over the course of a few days, it’s no surprise its biggest competitors wanted in on the frenzy.

This year, major retailers are once again lining up to compete with Amazon Prime Day deals. Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, and Best Buy were the first to announce their competing sales but we expect more details to be announced as we get closer to the start of Amazon Prime Day.

To help get you acquainted with what to expect, we’ve answered a few frequently asked questions regarding these competing Amazon Prime Day sales below, as well as a few of the best early deals we’ve seen so far.

Here’s a list of what to expect from competing Amazon Prime Day 2021 sales:

Walmart

Walmart+ Delivery Unlimited 2

Walmart’s ‘Deals for Days’ event will run from June 20 to 23 — a day before and lasting a day longer than Amazon Prime Day. 

So far, Walmart Plus members don’t get any exclusive perks during ‘Deals for Days.’ For those unfamiliar, Walmart Plus is the retail giant’s answer to a Prime membership. It offers unlimited same-day delivery for 160,000 items and costs $98 a year, about $20 less than one year of Amazon Prime. 

What will be on sale?

For 2021, we’ll likely see steep discounts on everything from entertainment and tech to kitchen appliances and video games during the ‘Deals for Days’ event. Here are some we know of ahead of time: 

AirPods Pro (medium)
Target

target store

The ‘Target Deal Days’ event lands on June 20 and ends on June 22. That’s a day before Amazon Prime Day and a day shorter than Walmart’s ‘Deals for Days’ event.

What will be on sale?

Target’s previous event included $50 off the iRobot Roomba 695, $150 off the Dyson V8 Motorhead, and $100 off a Samsung 50-inch The Frame 4K Smart TV. 

This year, look for deep discounts on tech, smart home, gaming, and many more product categories.

Best Buy

best buy

Best Buy’s ‘Bigger Deal Savings Event’ starts well before the competition — it’ll take place until June 22. This is unprecedented: Best Buy’s previous Prime Day sales started and ended with Amazon’s sale. 

Best Buy’s competing Prime Day discounts are open to all shoppers. However, My Best Buy rewards members may avail of exclusive savings or early access to deals. (Not a member? It’s free to sign up.)

What will be on sale?

Best Buy’s current ‘Bigger Deal Savings Event’ promotions include up to $250 off select gaming laptopsup to 50% off small kitchen appliances, and up to $400 off select Samsung Galaxy phones. Browse all of the event’s ongoing deals here

Kohl’s

kohl's store

Kohl’s ‘Wow Deals’ event will be held in-stores and online for the duration of Amazon Prime Day: June 21 through 22. 

Sale shoppers can also earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent during ‘WOW Deals.’ That’s free money you get to spend on future purchases. Kohl’s Card holders can also get an additional 15% off on the event’s deals and promotions. 

What will be on sale?

A sneak peek of the offers from ‘Wow Deals’ include a $150 Google Nest Hello Doorbell, $200 Shark Ion Robot Vacuum, and a $200 Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum — all of which earn $30 of Kohl’s Cash. 

During its competing Prime Day sale last year, Kohl’s offered a Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 Indoor Grill for $200 — and sweetened the deal by adding $30 Kohl’s Cash. Look for notable savings on kitchen wares, bedding, furniture, and other home goods.

Bed Bath & Beyond

bed bath & beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond’s Fall Sale featured up to 60% off bedding, 30% off curtains and rugs, and 25% off fall decor. Shoppers also received $50 in My Funds Rewards (valid for 30 days) on purchases over $200.

Expect more of the same this year from Bed Bath & Beyond’s competing Prime Day sale. For extra savings, get a one-year Beyond+ membership for $29 and enjoy 20% off and free standard shipping on all orders. You may be able to effectively make that Beyond+ membership free if Bed Bath & Beyond includes a $29 bonus card with sign-up, like it did during last year’s sale.

What will be on sale?

Standout offers from last year’s sale included $25 off a Le Creuset Tea Kettle and $50 off a Zwilling 8-inch chef’s knife. This year, expect to find offers on bedding, decor, small appliances, and robot vacuums.

Home Depot

Home Depot

Home Depot’s concurrent Prime Day 2020 sale saw up to 50% off interior furniture, decor, and kitchenware. Its other main event, the Fall Appliance Sale, was also ongoing and lasted through October 21.

Since Amazon Prime Day is happening on June 21-22, it’s likely to overlap with some of Home Depot’s summertime specials. This may be a boon for anyone looking to buy indoor furniture, as mid-summer specials tend to yield the best deals for those items.

What will be on sale?

Last year’s Home Depot sale featured up to 30% off select power tools and small appliances, up to 40% off select bathroom vanities, and up to 50% off select interior furniture. Expect similar sales for 2021. 

eBay

eBay

If you don’t have a Prime membership, eBay is a great alternative to Amazon. To compete with Amazon’s member-exclusive Prime Day sales, eBay typically holds a competing sale that’s available to all shoppers.

What will be on sale?

Last year, eBay had discounts on TVs, headphones, gaming systems, cameras, vacuums, appliances, clothing, sneakers, luggage, smart home devices, and more.

Some of the most notable brands that were on sale last year include Adidas, Apple, Dyson, Canon, KitchenAid, Sony, Samsonite, and LG.

Chewy

A small cat behind a blue Chewy goody box.

Last year’s Chewy Blue Box Event ran from October 11 through October 15, alongside Amazon Prime Day. The online marketplace actually extended its sale event to continue through October 15, serving up even more discounts. 

Chewy sells pet products across all categories, including food, treats, supplies, and treatments. The previous year’s Blue Box Event offered all of that and more, meaning you should expect similar deals this time around, with savings beginning in just under two days. If you can’t wait to begin saving, Chewy also has a deals page on its website that houses the best deals of the day

What will be on sale? 

The Blue Box Event in 2020 featured 30% off pet essentials, 40% off your first Autoship order, and buy three, get one free for pet toys, apparel, and treats. Shoppers also got 25% off when they purchased two customized products.

Backcountry

Three Backcountry employees pose for the camera inside of a Backcountry store; there is clothing and outdoor gear all around them.

Outdoor gear retailer Backcountry is set to host its 48-Hour Flash Sale on June 21 and June 22. You can find deals on big and small-name brands and product categories like clothing, footwear, accessories, and more. 

Norrona, Columbia, and Salomon are just a few of the top brands included in the flash sale. You can, however, start saving early, with Backcountry giving up to 65% off on select Stoic styles, now through June 22. 

What will be on sale? 

During the flash sale, expect to save up to 65% on select gear and apparel. Top styles such as the Sorel Emelie Chelsea Boot and the Mountain Hardwear Firefall Bib Pant will have discounted price tags.

FAQs

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

This year, Amazon Prime Day takes place on June 21 and June 22. We expect to see several discounts last a few days after the end of Amazon Prime Day.

Are Amazon Prime Day deals worth it?

Short answer: it depends on what you’re shopping for.

To expand upon that, Amazon Prime Day is, first and foremost, an Amazon event. That means the strongest offers will be on Amazon products like its Echo smart speakers, Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions, and Amazon-brand groceries. 

With major retailers like Walmart, Kohl’s, and Target running competing sales alongside Prime Day, you have some leeway to shop around for better deals on what you need. 

Can anyone buy Amazon Prime Day deals?

Amazon Prime Day deals are for Amazon Prime members only. Fortunately, if you’re not a member yet and aren’t keen to purchase a full membership, you can take advantage of a free 30-day trial with full benefits. However, a Prime membership comes with a plethora of benefits that you can take advantage of year-round so it’s worth signing up if you shop Amazon often.

The appeal of competing Prime Day deals, however, is that they’re open to the general public. Stores like Walmart may peddle their own membership offers, but these sales are otherwise inclusive outside of Amazon Prime Day.

Though most of the Amazon Prime Day action goes down over at, well, Amazon, several other major retailers run competing sales and deals.

Walmart is arguably the biggest and most important among them because it matches some of Amazon’s best deals and also offers fast shipping – and you don’t need to buy a membership to access the deals.

Walmart’s Deal for Days sale technically runs June 20 to 23, giving you a day longer than Amazon Prime Day to shop deals.

There are already some early Walmart deals you can shop now. We’ve highlighted the best below and also answer your questions about the event, including a sneak peek at some of Walmart’s upcoming Amazon Prime Day discounts that are going live later this week.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon announced that Prime Day 2021 will take place June 21 and 22. Last year, the event was held in mid-October, after much delay due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Will Walmart hold a sale during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Walmart announced that it will be holding its own Deals for Days event from June 20 to 23, an entire day before and outlasting Amazon Prime Day 2021.

If this sounds familiar, Walmart did the same thing last year. Walmart’s Big Save Event in 2021 was on October 13 through 15 – a full day longer than Prime Day. The event was chock-full of deals around the clock, with many going out of stock well before the sale came to a close.

Are Walmart Prime Day deals worth buying?

If past sales are any indicator, many of Walmart’s Prime Day deals are worth buying – especially if they’re ones we highlight. They tend to compete with low prices we see from Amazon during the event, sometimes even marking the best prices we’ve seen for certain products.

What deals should I expect from Walmart during Prime Day 2021?

Along with announcing the date for Walmart’s Deals for Days event, Walmart provided a sneak peek at some deals you can expect from the event.

In addition to these, we expect Walmart’s Amazon Prime Day sale will feature many of the same product categories it has in the past: entertainment, tech, kitchen appliances, robot vacuums, upright vacuums, and video games.

For Walmart’s Big Save Event 2020, we saw tons of great deals including $100 off the Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones, $100 off an Echelon with a 6-month subscription, and $20 off Super Mario Party for Nintendo Switch. Instant Pot, Samsung, Roku, Google Nest, Keurig, and Bissel are just some of the brands we saw discounted during the sale as well.

How will Walmart Plus membership play into Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Though Walmart hasn’t mentioned what event-specific perks they’ll get during Deals for Days, Walmart Plus members will get to reap the benefits they do year-round when shopping the sale. That includes free same-day delivery, two-day shipping, next-day shipping, and the newly-added Rx for less.

If you’re interested in sampling the membership, you can try it out for 15 days, free. If you sign up now, you’ll be covered during the Deals for Days event on June 20.

15-Day Free Trial (small)

Are there benefits to shopping from Walmart during Prime Day 2021?

The first major benefit to shopping from Walmart during Prime Day is accessibility: You usually don’t need a membership to get the deals. If you do happen to be a member of Walmart Plus, you can cash in on free two-day shipping for any of your orders.

Walmart also offers physical locations from which you can pick up your order in-store if you’re in a rush – a major advantage over Amazon.

Who should shop from Walmart during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Since the sale is open to everyone, non-Prime members are great candidates for shopping Walmart’s upcoming Prime Day 2021 sale. In-store pickup also makes it a great opportunity for anyone in a rush to get their order.

Amazon Prime Day, on the other hand, is a Prime-member exclusive-it’s one of the biggest selling points for a membership if you’re a deals-minded shopper. Prime membership comes with a ton of other great benefits and is free to try for 30 days if you’re tempted.

Walmart Deals for Days 2021 discount Echelon Connect Sport exercise bike
Echelon’s Connect Sport exercise bike is $100 off during Walmart’s ‘Deals for Days’ event

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

If you’ve had your eye on an exercise bike but have yet to pull the trigger, let this be the nudge you need: Right now during Walmart’s Deals for Days event, a competing Amazon Prime Day sale, the Echelon’s Connect Sport exercise bike is discounted by $100, bringing its price down to $497 – which is one of the best deals we’ve seen on it since Black Friday.

Not only is that one of the lowest prices we’ve seen on the bike, but Walmart’s also throwing in a free 30-day membership to Echelon United and FitPass. With Echelon United, members have access to a growing library of live and on-demand spin classes, while FitPass is the brand’s off-bike service, offering HIIT, yoga, and strength training classes (among many others).

While we’re big fans of Echelon’s high-end exercise bike, the EX5S, the Connect Sport is actually a far better deal – especially now considering it’s discounted during Walmart’s Deals for Days event. The Connect Sport features an easy-to-use resistance dial that spans 32 different levels, a comfortable, ergonomic design, and adjustable toe cage pedals (so you won’t need to buy spin shoes).

Though it may not have as many bells and whistles as, say, the Peloton Bike+ or NordicTrack’s S22i, the Connect Sport is a great entry-level exercise bike that delivers an effective cardio workout. There’s no touchscreen display or automatically adjusting resistance (even the original Peloton didn’t have this), but the rest of the Connect Sport, like its design, ride experience, and durability, put in on par with many higher-end bikes.

And don’t let the lack of that touchscreen sway you; the Connect Sport’s handlebars feature dedicated space for you to use a screen of your own, be it a smartphone or tablet.

The fact this bike’s on sale for under $500 while also coming with a free month of unlimited access to streaming classes makes it that much more of an attractive deal.

Can I stream Peloton classes with this bike?

Since the Connect Sport doesn’t have its own onboard touchscreen, you’re able to freely stream any fitness class or service you like, so long as you have something to stream it on (e.g., a smartphone, tablet, computer, or streaming device). This includes Peloton’s Digital Membership, NordicTrack’s iFit, or any other brand that offers on-demand classes.

Do keep in mind that Walmart’s Deals for Days discount does come with a free 30-day membership to Echelon United, the brand’s streaming library of live and on-demand classes. This means that you’ll have at least one free month of unlimited content before needing to pay for access (which is $40 per month).

Will Walmart hold a sale during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Walmart will hold its own Deals for Days event from June 20 to 23, an entire day before and outlasting Amazon Prime Day 2021. Some deals are already live, so you can start saving now.

If this sounds familiar, Walmart did the same thing last year. Walmart’s Big Save Event in 2020 ran from October 13 through 15 – a full day longer than Prime Day. The event featured a wide variety of deals available around the clock, with many going out of stock well before the sale ended.

Are Walmart’s Deals for Days worth buying?

If prior sales events are any indicator, many of Walmart’s Prime Day deals are worth buying. Many tend to directly compete with the sales we see via Amazon and retailers like Target and Best Buy during the event. Some may even be the best prices we’ve seen for certain products. Check out our guide to the best deals from the event happening now.

What deals should I expect from Walmart during its Deals for Days event?

We also expect Walmart’s sale to feature many of the same product categories it has in the past. This includes entertainment, tech, kitchen appliances, robot vacuums, upright vacuums, and video games.

Do I need a Walmart Plus membership?

Though Walmart hasn’t mentioned what event-specific perks Walmart Plus members get during Deals for Days, they’re still able to reap the same benefits they do year-round when shopping the sale. That includes free same-day delivery, two-day shipping, next-day shipping, and the newly-added Rx for less.
