The best of the Target, Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart deals

The major retailers are holding major sales this week.
Deal days

Tuesday marked the start of Amazon's delayed Prime Day, which in turn has sparked the launch of similar deal events by rivals like Target, Best Buy and Walmart.

On Tuesday and Wednesday – and in Walmart's case Thursday – prices are being slashed at the four major retailers, a precursor to the Black Friday deals that will follow over the next six weeks.

We've taken a look at some of the deals on offer – with the aid of some guidance from BestBlackFriday.com – to take a look at some of the best deals being offered by the respective companies.
