Walmart jumps on Amazon and starts a summer sale just one day before the Prime Day, the largest sale of the e-commerce giant of the year.
The world's largest retailer launches on Sunday and offers Sunday through Wednesday deals – similar to Amazon – Free shipping within two days of orders over $ 35. In the meantime, Prime Day starts on Monday and lasts until Tuesday.
Like Amazon, Walmart offers everything from toys to smart home devices.
Prime Day, on which members of the subscription service can find special offers on the company's website and the Whole Foods Store, began in 201
Last year, Amazon announced its Prime The day was the "biggest in history" when the best members bought more than 100 million products during the sale. And in 2017, the company announced that sales were up more than 60 percent – a record at the time that surpassed Amazon's sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The popularity of the event has led other retailers to look for ways to compete.
Target will also enter the sales hype this week and hold "trading days" on Monday and Tuesday, the same dates as on Prime Day. Target said it will offer 40 percent off some furniture and 30 percent off some cookware and small appliances. This is in addition to other offers for toys, sporting goods and bed linen.
