Amazon’s Prime Day sales event starts Tuesday, October 13, and ends Wednesday, but retail rival Walmart has created its own “The Big Save” deal event that started October 11 and runs through Thursday. These are the best deals we’ve seen from Walmart so far.
We expect to see deals from other retailers too, like Target and Best Buy. You don’t have to pay for a Prime membership to get these perks or give to the Amazon Overlords if you’d prefer to spend your money elsewhere. (Though they’re all overlords, really.)
We strike through deals that sell out or are unavailable at their discounted price. Deal sometimes return and items come back in stock faster than we can update, so check for yourself.
Gear readers can get a 3 Month Trial Subscription to WIRED for $ 1 this week. A subscription gives unlimited ad-free access to WIRED along with our print magazine if you’d like. It normally costs $ 30 per year.
Allswell Hybrid Queen Mattress for $ 245 ($ 130 off): The Allswell is our favorite cheap mattress, so the extra $ 130 off is a nice bonus. Unlike many of the similarly priced mattresses that we tested, the Allswell has individually wrapped springs inside it to prevent motion transfer and a top layer of gel-infused memory foam for comfort. Its rimmed with tubing like a traditional mattress, so it has better edge support than other foam models.
iRobot Roomba E6 for $ 299 ($ 150 off): When it comes to robot vacuums, iRobot consistently puts out some of the best (the S9+ is one of our favorites). The E6 has a half-liter bin and a HEPA filter. The 670 is also on sale for $ 244 ($ 86 off). It has a bit of a smaller bin at 300 milliliters, and no HEPA filter, but has a faster charging time.
Eufy RoboVac 25C Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum for $ 149 ($ 101 off): While we haven’t tested this Eufy model (we recommend the Eufy RoboVac G30). We’ve consistently liked Eufy’s budget robot vacuums as being affordable, attractive, and easy to use.
Instant Pot 6 Qt in Vintage Floral for $ 49 ($ 50 off): This vintage floral wallpaper inspired InstantPot is for a specific person (me), but if that’s you this is a great deal for an all-in-one electric pressure cooker.
Dyson Airwrap Complete Set for $ 519 ($ 31 off): It’s not the biggest discount for an expensive piece of hair tech, but if you’ve been eyeing the Airwrap, any deal might do. And this one includes all the brush and wand attachments, rather than the hair-specific sets that run for $ 500.
Keurig Classic for $ 79 ($ 10 off): If you like the idea of a one cup style coffee pot, this is a pretty good price for the classic Keurig. They aren’t our favorite coffee pots, but for the occasional coffee drinker or a student living in a dorm room, they make life a little easier.
Well Being 3 Piece 20 Pound Weighted Blanket Set for $ 60 ($ 10 off): We haven’t tried this particular model, and we don’t think this is the best weighted blanket you can find—while weighted blankets are typically expensive, the cheaper options we looked at weren’t all that great—but it’s a good price if you want to try the concept out without spending too much. Plus it comes with a cover and eyemask.
