Today is the last day of Amazon Prime Day and there are still plenty of back-to-school discounts to snag before time runs out.

If you know your kids will inevitably need six spiral notebooks, a new (and less grimy) lunchbox, or a sturdier backpack, you may want to save yourself a bit of money and stock up on them now.

We’re also seeing good competing Prime Day sales from stores such as Best Buy and Target. So if you can’t find a good deal on Amazon, there are other places to look.

Is Prime Day only for Prime members?

Yes, you will need to have an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of the deals during Prime Day. 

It’s worth noting that beyond Prime Day, a Prime account includes free two-day or same-day shipping. It also includes Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Try Before You Buy (formerly Prime Wardrobe), and other perks. 

If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial.

Which retailers are competing with Prime Day?

Other retailers are offering competing Prime Day deals around the same dates that Prime Day takes place. Some retailers with physical locations offer the benefit to pick up items on the same day, as long as the location has your item in stock.

Historically, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy are the major contenders to keep an eye on during the event, as they match some of Amazon’s all-time low prices without the subscriber barrier to entry.
