Walmart launches rival sale to Amazon's Prime Day [usatoday.com]

Not one to let Amazon steal the sales spotlight, Walmart will launch a rival sale Wednesday to Amazon's recently announced Prime Day, including more than 2,000 online exclusive "rollbacks," Walmart's word for discounts.

The lower prices on items in categories including electronics, home, baby and toys will last 90 days, the typical time period for rollbacks, which Walmart usually has hundreds of at any given time throughout the year. Starting Monday, Walmart is also reducing the minimum order for free shipping from $50 to $35 for at least 30 days.

Walmart called out Amazon for making its lower prices on Prime Day available only to Prime members, who pay $99 a year to be part of the service that offers free two-day shipping and access to video streaming and music. In a blog post slated to go up Monday, Walmart plans to say that it is "standing up for our customers and everyone else who sees no rhyme or reason for paying a premium to save."

"We just don't believe you should pay a fee to get a better price," said Walmart spokesperson Ravi Jariwala.

In addition to the rollbacks and lower free shipping minimum, Walmart also promises "some special atomic deals," with more details to come later.

Amazon Prime Day is scheduled to start at 3 AM ET on Wednesday, so Walmart decided to fire back with an online deal of their own that begins three hours early at 12:01 AM ET.

Please post the deals here:

Love it. Walmart and Target have been sticks in the mud for Amazon. I've noticed that best buy has backed off asking for a license to return items... I hope it isn't just local. I knew Bbuy would suffer sales for that action

Time to load my cart.and wait.
Book and movies.

Will Target and best buy react w a sale? Pm is a good thing w a Redcard. Win-Win for consumers.

I guess that's why there is no fee for Sam's Club, oh wait.

Says the company that owns Sam's Club. And last I heard, Walmart was looking to come out with a similar program where you pay $50/yr and then get "free" shipping. Pssh.

Pathedic attempt from Walmart to piggyback Prime Day press. I'm sticking with Amazons gameplan. Their deals can be so sick. Their fulfillment even sicker. As for wally world they just will never win the online competition game, only the open 24 hr redneck local game. Especially with their big blue site its just Sad blues.

So, since they object to single-day specials, does that mean Black Friday specials will now also be good for 90 days?
