Best Buy, eBay, NewEgg and more are giving Amazon Prime Day a run for its money

Today may very well be Amazon Prime Day, but don’t count out Amazon’s countless rivals. They’re not just watching; retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Toys ’R’ Us among others have responded in kind with deals that, in some cases, are even better than Amazon’s.

For instance, Best Buy is running what it calls “Big Deals Day,” while NewEgg is conducting a “Fantastech Sale.” Meanwhile, we have eBay simply running stronger deals than Amazon for several products, and Toys ‘R’ Us taking 20% off the top of everything you buy online today.

Plus, with these deals, you don’t have to get a free trial of anything – they just work. Without further ado, here are the best Prime Day deals you won’t find on Amazon:

The top Best Buy deals on Prime Day

$150 off every 9.7-inch iPad Pro model: No, that’s not a typo. Best Buy has shaved $150 even off of every version of Apple’s 9.7-inch, pro-grade tablet, from 32GB to 256GB and in every color the slate comes in.

$80 off a 39-inch Insignia LED HDTV: This just might be the best HDTV of Prime Day, a nearly 40-inch, 720p screen for less than even most 32-inch sets. A V-chip for parental controls and 178-degree viewing angles round out this steal of a deal.

Free Amazon Echo Dot with a Logitech Harmony Home Hub: Today only, you can buy Logitech’s hub device for smart home products and get Amazon’s smallest smart speaker for free. A fine way to jumpstart your smart home journey.

$350 off a 17-inch Asus gaming laptop: This Asus ROG GL702VM, with Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics and a 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor behind it, is available today for nearly 25% off at just $1,099.

$100 off an Eero Wi-Fi mesh system: The new-age router that started it all, you can score 25% off of a three-pack of Eero Wi-Fi mesh devices, likely the cheapest it’s ever been. Kill those dead spots in your home for less than ever.

$200 off an iRobot Roomba 877: You can have one of iRobot’s self-charging smart vacuums for just $400 today through this deal. This version can create virtual boundaries, too, so it won’t go tumbling down a flight stairs.

The best eBay deals on Prime Day

39% off a Google Home speaker: While this isn’t as great as last night’s deal, the Google Home speaker can still be had for just $99 today. Either way, that’s still a solid savings on what could be a smart home staple.

$40 off the brand new iPad: eBay has chopped 12% off the price of a brand new, 32GB 9.7-inch iPad, likely the cheapest you’re going to see such a device short of Black Friday. You can even choose your favorite color.

More than $700 off a Nikon D750 (body only): Amounting to a 35% in savings, this incredibly pricey Nikon camera can be had for the relatively cheap price of $1,289.99. Considering it goes for about two grand normally, consider this a steal.

$50 off a Fitbit Charge 2 HR: Widely considered Fitbit’s strongest fitness tracker, you can have it today for just $99. That’s a pittance for a fitness tracker that tracks your heart rate, plus you can choose your favorite color.

$230 off an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8: A incredible phone deal here, score the latest from Samsung, a 64GB Galaxy S8 in the color of your choice for 28% off the retail price. Plus, it has a dual SIM card slot.

The best NewEgg deals on Prime Day

Just $89 for a Google Home speaker: Not one to be outdone, NewEgg is offering the Google Home smart speaker for even less with a $10 discount promo code, which essentially covers tax to get your Home for truly under 100 bucks.

More than $300 off an MSI gaming laptop: You can score the 15.6-inch MSI GL62M for just $569 all told after a $10 promo code that expires today and a $150 mail-in rebate. That’s a gaming laptop for less than 600 bucks, mind you.

Nearly 60% off a DJI Phantom 3 drone: While this is a certified refurbished deal, that you can score a professional-grade drone for a whopping 56% off, down to a cool $349, should not be ignored.

Just $110 for a curved LG gaming monitor: With a $20 promo code, you can score this 25-inch, 2,560 x 1,080 curved gaming screen with a 60Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time. Perfect for more immersive RPGs and strategy games.

Only $60 for a 2TB Seagate portable SSD: A whopping 2TB for all of your favorite music, movies and other files, plus a mobile device backup feature, all for just the price of a new video game. This should bring an end to your storage limit doldrums.
