Best camera deals not at Amazon
Target, Walmart, and other retailers are running competing sales at the same time as Amazon Prime Early Access Sale. ZDNET is keeping an eye on those sales and plans to include the top deals on cameras from them.
ZDNET only writes about deals for products we, ourselves, would want to buy -- devices and products we enjoy, need, or would recommend to our family and friends. Our experts looked for deals on products that are either rarely on sale or available for a noteworthy discount. We use established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether or not a deal was worth your time and money.
We also use customer reviews to get the inside scoop on products from people who've actually used them. In addition, we also often test devices ourselves so we can bring you accurate advice.
Amazon announced a new sales event in 2022: a Prime Day-like sale in October called Prime Early Access Sale. It's designed to give shoppers early access to thousands of deals ahead of the holiday season. Although it's not officially branded a "Prime Day" sale, it's similar: It lasts a couple of days and is limited to Prime subscribers.
If you're not a Prime member, you can still sign up for a free 30-day trial, or instead see what sales other US retailers launch in response.
