Walmart often matches Amazon’s Prime Day discounts—and vice versa—which means, come Prime Day, you may see some pretty competitive pricing between the two monolithic retailers. We’ve seen it ourselves first hand, in fact. A few years ago, Deputy Deals Editor Dan Kim watched the price of the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty air purifier drop lower and lower throughout the day as each store tried to outshine the other. Eventually, when the price felt right (and when it seemed the competition had drawn to an end), he made his purchase and ended up spending $132 (the lowest we had seen to date). Compared to the first deal the team had spotted that morning at $185, the 30% drop in price was hardly believable.
Walmart offers many of the same products to improve your space that Amazon does—some notable options include small appliances like air purifiers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers. With fires around the country driving elevated prices, air purifiers may be hard to come by affordably, but Walmart sells the Coway Airmega 200M, an affordable option that could see deals come Prime Day. Our runner-up air purifier pick, it performs identically to our top pick but consistently costs less, sometimes much less.
Walmart also offers tools and carries many of our picks from Bosch, Dewalt, Milwaukee, and Stanley, but keep an eye on the sellers when browsing tool deals. Walmart hosts 3rd party sellers, some of which have terrible ratings, so the quality of your experience may be based on how good your seller is.
If you’re looking to improve your outdoor space, Walmart carries our steel patio furniture set pick and August thru October is the time we can usually expect to see patio furniture on sale.
