Wondering how to approach the Amazon Prime Day vs. Walmart Holiday Kickoff? Let's be honest: Both retailers are great at hosting huge saving events, with big-name brands like Shark, Ninja, and Nespresso all having big discounts.

Right now, both sites have big sales days at similar times. Amazon has its sale day (officially known as Big Deals Day) event running from Oct 10-11, while Walmart has its holiday kickoff from Oct 9-12. They each have thousands of deals on site, which can be a little overwhelming to sort through, in order to find the best prices.

Luckily, I’ve done all the hard work for you. I’ve gone through Amazon Prime Day deals and Walmart deals, found the best discounts on top brands, and compared the two sites on price. So, no matter whether you’re looking to save on a vacuum or shop a coffee maker, I’ve got you covered.
