Amazon is celebrating its 20th birthday today with its Amazon Prime Day, a single-day extravaganza promising shopping deals bigger and better than Black Friday itself.
There’s always a catch though. Today’s catch is that a shopper has to be an Amazon Prime member – with its $99 annual membership fee – to take advantage of the Prime Day promotions.
To combat Amazon Prime Day, Walmart, Target and other retailers are running deep discounts on sales of their very own, creating a sizzling shopping fervor, with a very distinctive “holidays in July” feel.
So, in a battle of retailing titans, how does Amazon stack up to Walmart? WebpageFX has created the infographic below, and it provides a nice “tale of the tape” as the two set out to win the heart and minds (and wallets) of shoppers.
