Everyone loves a good bargain—and this July you'll find them just about everywhere. Amazon Prime Day isn't the only game in town.
High-end beauty products
One category you're not likely to find on Amazon, but you will find during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, is premium beauty products. "The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be active during Amazon Prime Day for Nordstrom cardholders (before opening to the general public on July 19), and consumers will be able to save [on] high-end beauty brands like Trish McEvoy, Tom Ford, and YSL," says shopping expert Trae Bodge. Look for steep discounts on Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil and these other can't-miss deals during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Samsung and Apple products
While you can expect big deals on Amazon Fires, Echos, and Dots on Amazon Prime Day (July 15-16), you aren't as likely to find deals on Samsung and Apple products, unless you shop at eBay. "Based on what I'm seeing from embargoed deals from eBay, eBay is offering even bigger deals around Amazon Prime Day on Samsung and Apple laptops," Bodge says. eBay is also offering their Best Price Guarantee, where if you find an item for less on a competitor's website, they will give you 110 percent of the price difference on any eligible deals. "And if Amazon crashes—like it has the past few years—eBay will drop even more jaw-dropping blockbuster deals." Look for a potentially steep discount on the Samsung Chromebook 3 11.6 Pro Laptop.
Google Smart Home products
Walmart is another retailer offering deals that compete with Amazon Prime Day. A couple of advantages they have over the online retailer are that: A) you can shop in an actual store and B) you don't need to sign up for a membership (the required membership to Prime can turn off some would-be Amazon Prime Day shoppers), explains Misty Lynch, CFP and head of financial planning at John Hancock. "At Walmart, you'll find deals on Google Smart Home products including Nest cameras, smart speakers, Google Home, and Google smart TV kits." The Google Home, for example, is currently marked down to $69 from $129. Head back to Amazon for these pricey home products that are on sale on Prime Day.
