Can't access Amazon Prime Day? Other sites are competing with their own sales

The Amazon site crashed ... luckily for these other retailers!

At 3 p.m. on July 16, Amazon’s 24-hour Prime Day brought Black Friday-esque deals to an otherwise sleepy retail month. At the same time, Amazon's website crashed.

Prime Day offers some excellent deals across categories, especially on Amazon original products such as the Echo and Fire TV Stick. Unsurprisingly, other retailers are offering similarly excellent deals on a wide range of products in order to compete with the online retail giant.

Walmart, K-Mart, and Target are all offering deep discounts. So, if you're having trouble accessing Amazon's site or just not finding any deals that speak to you, here are some of TODAY’s top picks from other retailers' summer sales.


After an entire website redesign, Walmart offers free two-day shipping without membership fees and even free same-day pickup on some items. Their current summer specials take up to 50 percent off retail prices to compete with Prime Day.
