We’ve all heard about Amazon’s massive Prime Day sale that’s happening now until 2:59 a.m. EST on Wednesday, with deals across every category from home to beauty. There are more than a million unique deals taking place during the 48-hour event, so shoppers are guaranteed to find a new favourite product in the mix.

What consumers may not realize is that the online mega-sale is also increasing competition between other retailers as they host their own exclusive sales in an effort to drum up shoppers’ excitement.

We searched the web for the best sales on now, so whether you’re looking for electronics, beauty products, toys or clothes, you’ll find even more deals on top of Amazon’s selection of items.
