The best Prime Day sales not happening at Amazon: Deals at eBay, Google, Newegg, Walmart and others – CNET

As we gear up for Day 2 of Prime Day, a bunch of other retailers have elbowed in with their own online sales, much like last year. For now, the list includes eBay, Google, Newegg, Walmart and Lowe's. (GameStop's sale has now ended.)

Here are the alternative Prime Day sales we've heard about so far. We'll continue to add to the list as new ones appear.

In contrast to Amazon's fourth annual sales bonanza, which is available only to Prime members, eBay's deals are available to everyone. eBay says it's offering discounts on thousands of electronics, home goods, fashion and sports products from brands including Apple, Samsung, Adidas, Dyson and KitchenAid. Note: the early-bird promotion, with eBay throwing in a free Google Home Mini on purchases of $119 or more, has now ended.

Google Store

In addition to the many discounts on Google products being offered by Amazon and other retailers, Google is discounting much of its hardware on its own site — including phones, smart speakers and streaming devices. It's not yet clear how long this sale will last. A few notable deals:

Best Buy

Best Buy is offering up discounts on 4K Smart TVs, a wide array of laptops including MacBooks (though not the brand new Pro models announced last week), smartphones and tons of other stuff. Most of the deals are available both in store and online, and students are eligible for an additional $150 off of certain products. Here are a handful of highlights:

Ignore the groan-inducing name of Newegg's mid-July sale ("FantasTech"), there are actually some good deals to be had. You can score the Acer Aspire 5 15-inch laptop for $500 — that's $200 off its list price and $60 less than the similar (and CNET budget favorite) Acer Aspire E15 selling at Amazon right now. As of Tuesday morning, many of the deals are set to remain active through Thursday.

Whole Foods

A reminder to those of you who've been living under a rock for the past year: Whole Foods is now a fully owned subsidiary of Amazon. And as such, Prime Day is extending into the real-world grocery aisle this year. From July 11 through July 17, Prime members get a $10 account credit on Amazon for Prime Day when you spend that same amount at Whole Foods Market. Meanwhile, Rewards Visa cardholders with Prime membership get 10 percent back on up to a total of $400 from July 14 to July 17. In addition, Prime members who are trying the delivery feature from Whole Foods Market stores via Prime Now will receive $10 off their order when they shop before July 17, and can get $10 to use toward a future order.


Amazon's $300 Switch bundle deal, which added in a free 64GB memory card and $20 Nintendo eShop card with the purchase of the console, appears to have sold out. But Walmart is offering up its own bundle: $329 for the Switch and a game of your choice (there are four options: Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2). Not too shabby.

Lowe's deals are live until midnight ET on Tuesday. The discounts are available exclusively online and most feature tools — but there are a handful of worthwhile promotions on smart home products and electronics. Members of the My Lowe's loyalty program get an additional 10 percent off your order. A few highlights:

  • Samsung Connect Home Smart WiFi system (three pack) — $100 (save $200)
  • Lyrics Wifi Cam 2 — $128 (save $42)
  • OmniMount Wall TV Mount — $20 (save $30
  • Spend $150 or more and get a free Google Home Mini
