Target, Walmart & More Have Competing Sales for Prime Day. Here Are the Best Deals.

Amazon isn't the only retailer offering big deals and discounts on Wednesday.

Prime Day has become such a huge sale day that Amazon's competitors can't ignore it. They're not content to let Amazon hog the spotlight for the fall Prime Day, which has become a sort of early Black Friday. (Bringing us all one step closer to every day being a pre- or post-Black Friday pseudo-holiday.)

Though, that Black Friday connection may be one pushed by other stores since they aren't going to label their sales with the Amazon-run Prime Day label. Nonetheless, shops all around the country are offering big, alluring deals to compete with the online giant's 48-hour sale. You'll find significant discounts available at big box stores like Best Buy and local stores you may want to support in a year where it's tough to make it as a small business. 

Here are the best Prime Day sales from stores that aren't Amazon, including Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and many others. And remember, most sales end tonight at midnight.
