In the years since Amazon Prime Day first cropped up in 2015, other retailers have slowly begun piggy-backing off the behemoth retailer’s deals event with their own summer savings. Basically, what was once a two-day deals event has evolved into a week-long (even month’s worth) sales event that cuts a swath through every commerce category, and now rivals some of the biggest deals days throughout the year such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Prime Day runs through July 12-13 this year, but check out all the best Prime Day alternative deals also going on this week.
