Just because Amazon Prime Day is here, it doesn’t mean you absolutely have to give Jeff Bezos all of your money. As you might expect, there are plenty of anti–Prime Day sales elsewhere on ye olde internet that you can check out until July 13. Whether you’re boycotting the capitalistic giant because of its working conditions, its tax avoidance, or any of the other reasons many choose to skip this sale (Or not! Hey, maybe you wan’t it all!), you can still enjoy some savings from other merchants whose owners haven’t been to space (yet).

From tech to beauty to fashion, here are some of the best Amazon Prime Day rival sales we’ll be checking out this week:

Best Prime Day Tech and Lifestyle Competitor Deals


In this house, we worship at the altar of Brooklinen linen sheets. During July 12–13, enjoy 15 percent off its entire site, including the sheets we can’t shut up about as well as new products and limited-edition sets.


If you’re in the market for linen pieces under $100, this sage-green linen Casaluna comforter set is 25 percent off, and it’s comfortable, trendy, and personally, my favorite comforter ever.

Overall, you shouldn’t sleep on Target’s annual Deal Days, which is an online-only event happening July 11–13 and offers savings across every department, including beauty, home, and electronics.


Ending tonight, Casper is offering up to $600 off mattresses and up to 50 percent off other select items.

Take advantage of the sale and treat yourself to a new duvet.


You can get over $100 off select vacuums online at Dyson. The company has deals on vacuums, air purifiers, and hair care.

We love this cordless vacuum, which is currently $100 off. Your mom will be so proud.

Our Place

Not only is the Our Place Always Pan in stock, but it is also on sale, along with plates, bowls, and mugs.

If you’ve been thinking about making the plunge for this cult favorite, now is a good time.


Starting July 11 through July 13, select Therabody products will be on sale, including Theraguns, RecoveryAirs, and Powerdots.

Just imagine what you could do with all the weekly chair-massage savings you’ll have with one of these.


Apple AirPods

Walmart is releasing plenty of rollbacks on some of its best-selling items. Similar to Amazon and Target, you can expect deals on tech like these AirPods, kitchen supplies, and home goods, like Bissell’s Portable Spot and Stain Cleaner.

Best Buy

Best Buy says it’s Black Friday in July, and we’re not going to argue if it means we get savings on top electronics like these these Beats headphones, which are nearly 50 percent off.



From July 12 to 13, Lelo is offering up to 40 percent off its best-selling sex toys. If you’re looking to add a little spice to your anti–Amazon Prime Day finds, this is what you’ve been waiting for.

Best Prime Day Competitor Fashion Deals


Personally, I look forward to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. If you’re a Nordstrom card member, you already have access to the deals. But if you don’t, and you absolutely can’t wait until July 15 to score some deals, it’s fine. Nordstrom currently already has some designer pieces marked down.

We’ve already rounded up some of our favorite things from this year, including this Vince skirt, which is perfect for the summer.


Net-a-Porter’s designer-clothing sale is just what the doctor your closet ordered. Enjoy an extra 15 percent off select accessories, clothing, and even beauty with the code EXTRA15.

Saks Fifth Avenue

It’s a good week for designer deals, because Saks Fifth Avenue is also offering up to 70 percent off its selection and free shipping.

We recommend this Cult Gaia dress that comes in five different colors.

Moda Operandi

You guessed it: another designer deal. Moda Operandi is currently hosting its Designer Sale, which offers up to 60 percent off clothes, accessories, and jewelry.

There is so much to choose from, but this dress from Johanna Ortiz is a favorite for this summer. My favorite, I mean.


Suddenly into “sports”? Nike is also having a sale with up to 40 percent off new markdowns.

Whether you’re in the market for new sneakers or some athleisure, this sale has something for you.


Adidas is offering up to 50 percent on shoes, clothing, and more.

Because you can never have too many pairs of white sneakers, here are the next ones you should add to your cart — and they’re 40 percent off.


Run, don’t walk, because one of our favorite weekender bags is half off at Everlane right now. Everlane has over 200 products on sale, with discounts as high as 60 percent.


You didn’t hear it from us, but Madewell is having its Secret Stock Sale until July 14. The site is offering an extra 40 percent off sale items with code CLASSIFIED.


You can get up to 70 percent off and free shipping at J.Crew right now using code BIGGERSALE.

Check out its clothing and accessories, like these fun hoops.

Best Prime Day Competitor Beauty Deals

While you’re shopping this sale, we recommend these COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches.


Dermstore is offering 20 percent off with code JOY and 2x points for members as part of their Beauty Discovery event. It’s the perfect time to stock up on some favorites, like this COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, or to try something new.

Ulta Beauty

Ulta Beauty’s Summer Hair Love event is still going strong. Through July 16, products from brands like Pureology and Biolage are on sale, while other brands are “buy one get one at 50 percent off” (so, technically, also on sale).


The Endless Orgasm Event is underway at Nars, with so many great deals on its iconic blush shade. For a limited time, you can get a free mini-blush with the code ORGASM, or you can get a customizable Orgasm Cheek & Lip Bundle for 33 percent off.

Paula’s Choice

You can stock up on some of your favorites, including their beloved Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant.

Right now you can enjoy 20 percent off sitewide at Paula’s Choice and free shipping if you spend over $25, which, let’s face it, you will.
