[*]This year, we expect once again to see deals on Google devices — like the rarely discounted Google Home Max smart speaker — which Amazon doesn't sell because they're in direct competition with Amazon's own line of Echo devices.
[*]We expect several competing Prime Day sales in 2020 as retailers attempt to out-discount one another to bring you the best deal. Check out our comprehensive list for the best deals as they start to roll out.

[/ul]Amazon's Prime Day has established itself as one of the biggest online sales events since the dawn of online shopping. Last year, millions of people shopped deals on Amazon ranging from electronics to baby supplies. Several other retailers have taken cues from Amazon's mega-sale and launched competing events of their own — and Walmart had some of the best deals.
Last year, Walmart ran thousands of special deals in an even longer window than Prime Day. Price cuts and rollbacks began one day before Prime Day and ran through one day after Prime Day, with new deals being added daily. Though the scale and scope of this year's deals have not yet been made public, we expect to see a similar sale from Walmart as they try to compete with Prime Day 2020.
We'll update this space with the best deals from Walmart's competing Prime Day sale as they're announced.
While Amazon offers steep deals on its in-house brand of tech devices like the Echos, Kindles, and Fire Sticks every Prime Day, last year, Walmart struck an exclusive deal with Google to bring you savings on some of the best smart home devices on the market. During Google Week by Walmart, we saw the Google Home Max drop to $249 (originally $399) and the Google Nest Learning Thermostat drop to $189 (originally $249). Expect to see similar steep discounts on Google devices in 2020.
We also saw great deals on electronics like 4K TVs, laptops, tablets, and speakers. The best of the best included the Dell G5 Gaming Laptop 15.6-inch Full HD selling for $779 (originally $1,099) and the Apple 9.7-inch iPad discounted to $329 (originally $429.99).

Last year, Walmart offered tons of gaming bundles that threw in a free game, controller, or accessory during its Prime Day competition sale. Freestanding old-school arcade games like Galaga and Space Invaders were also discounted, not to mention steep discounts on individual games.
Gaming bundles are traditionally huge sale items during holidays or major retail events like Prime Day or Black Friday. We expect that 2020 will be no different and that Walmart will offer similar deals to what we saw last time around.
Outside of Black Friday, Prime Day is typically the best way to stock up on affordable toys for the little ones. Last year, Walmart had deals on everything from EZ Bake Ovens to Nerf Guns to wooden swing sets. On second thought, forget the little ones and prepare to grab a bunch of Nerf guns for the Great Office Battle of 2020. Walmart also had deals on tons of Marvel superhero toys last year.
The best deals we saw in toys during Walmart's competing Prime Day sale last year included the KidKraft Swing Set for $269 (originally $399), the Schwinn Easy-Steer Tricycle for $59 (originally $99), and the Yamaha Ride On Car for $149 (originally $299).
Having a baby and caring for all their needs gets expensive quickly, so if you're a new parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend of a new parent, or if you've ever met a baby, you'll want to keep your eye out for deeply discounted baby gear during Prime Day.
Last year we saw some great deals in baby accessories, including a Walmart exclusive NUK breast pump for $179.99 (originally $299.99), a Graco infant car seat for $175.99 (originally $219.99), and a Levana Oma Baby Breathing Movement Monitor for $79.99 (originally $119.99).
Home improvement deals
Have you been using the same rusty wrench for as long as you can remember? You probably think the tools you have are good enough to do the job, but using old tools can be unsafe and opening yourself up to risk or injury.
Walmart's competing Prime Day sale will be a great opportunity to save on replacing your worn out tools. Last year, some of the best of Walmart's home improvement and DIY deals included an 8-piece Irwin plier set for $60.99 (originally 99.99), and a Viper storage chest to store them in for $92.97 (originally $143.98).
Sports and outdoors deals
The timing of Prime Day in mid-July couldn't be more perfect for deals on outdoor and sporting gear. At the height of summer, there are still tons of beach days, cookouts, and camping weekends left on the calendar.
Last year, Walmart had deals on Coleman and Ozark canopies and tents. We also saw deep discounts on an Official Sky Zone 14-Foot Trampoline selling for $299 (originally $679) and a Hyper E-ride Hybrid Bike with Battery down to $598 (originally $998).
