  • Walmart‘s ‘Big Save Event’ is live now, offering huge savings on Instant Pots and TVs, preceding Amazon Prime Day 2020, which starts on October 13.
  • Walmart’s Big Save Event not only lasts longer than Amazon’s 48-hour event, but also offers more in-store pickup locations.
  • The best Walmart deal right now is The Pioneer Woman Instant Pot LUX60 (down $50 to $49), which is a colorful, floral version of the popular multicooker.
  • Walmart has yet to announce how Walmart+ will play into the event or what benefits members can expect from the sale.

Amazon Prime Day 2020 is shaping up to be an event without precedent, and though this year has been full of supply chain delays and stock issues, other retailers are showing up with their own sales to compete. 

Shoppers have already started filling their carts and saving on electronics, home goods, and more during Walmart‘s Big Save Event through October 15.

Historically, Walmart’s Big Save event plays spoilsport to Amazon’s Prime Day — and this year is no different. The 2020 Big Save Event, like last year’s, not only starts ahead of Amazon’s but will also run one day longer, giving shoppers more time to snap up deals. 

Walmart has another major advantage over Amazon: it offers in-store pickup so you can bring your order home as soon as the same day. 

Last year, we combed and compared Walmart’s discounts to those offered during Prime Day on Amazon. While it remains to be seen how Walmart’s and Amazon’s deals compare, what you’ll find below are the best deals currently live during the Big Save Event.

Note: We’ve noticed significant volatility as the bike goes in and out of stock quickly. Be sure to check back often as inventory changes.

Walmart’s Big Save Sale features several discounted TVs, including this impressive 75-inch Samsung 4K UHD QLED TV for about $200 off its listed price. Additionally, Walmart matches Amazon’s discounts on Roku streaming media players.

What this year’s Big Save Sale lacks in console deals, it more than makes up for in individual game discounts. Right now, Nintendo Switch owners can save big on ‘Mario Tennis Aces,’ ‘Splatoon 2’, and ‘The Outer Worlds.’ 

For those looking to upgrade their kitchen appliances, or cross a few gifts off their holiday shopping list, Walmart has several deals that may be of interest. Notable products from the sale include a Ninja Supra blender system, Tineco cordless vacuum, and a Singer sewing machine.  

The best sports and outdoor deals

Walmart’s Big Save Event features several deals that could help you stay healthy during the long winter months ahead, including an Echelon Sport cycling bike with a six-month-long subscription and a NordicTrack percussion recovery gun.

Deals on classic brands like Champion and Levi’s will keep your basics and loungewear drawer fresh.
