Update: Prime Day 2021 is done and dusted, so many of the deals below are no longer valid. Check out our ZDNet Recommends hub for a better look at the latest deals available -- including roundups of the best products for businesses and professionals.
Amazon's Prime Day is a key event for consumers looking for bargains and gifts ahead of the holiday period, but the e-commerce giant is no longer the only vendor hoping to cash in on the shopping season.
Other US retail giants including Walmart, Costco, Home Depot, Target, and Best Buy, all of which dominate through both physical stores and e-commerce platforms, as well as individual retailers all now jump on the bandwagon and also offer a variety of deals and flash sales on mobile devices, gaming consoles, smart home products, and more.
Below you will find ZDNet's top picks from vendors other than Amazon. Check back frequently as we will be updating when new bargains and deals appear.
