Walmart is coming for Amazon with a competing spring sale: See the 24 best deals from Mashable

Walmart isn’t shy about hosting its own major sales events to directly compete with Amazon Prime Day. Though Amazon’s Big Spring Sale isn’t posing as a spring Prime Day, a week-long Walmart spring sale has conveniently kicked off on the same day — and with its own special new title.

Walmart’s Super Spring Savings Event doesn’t have a hard end date like Amazon’s sale does (March 25), though the identical launch dates have us predicting a similar runtime through the weekend. No Walmart+ membership is needed to access these deals, just like Amazon isn’t requiring a Prime membership to shop most of its savings. Walmart also dropped its spring deals without offering early access for Walmart+ members.

Despite the more last minute feel, Walmart’s spring sale is actually pretty solid. The main product categories are reminiscent of Black Friday (vacuums, kitchen appliances, headphones, cheap TVs), only the retailer is swapping holiday decorations and winter weather gear for patio furniture, bikes, and grills. Already, we’re seeing Walmart match or beat a lot of Amazon’s pricing, including on best sellers like the Apple Watch Series 9, the Fitbit Sense 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

We’re tracking the best deals at Walmart’s spring sale below. We’ll be updating this list as more deals drop over the coming days, while simultaneously keeping tabs on any new Amazon Big Spring deals.

Best Walmart spring sale Apple deals

Apple AirPods Pro (USB-C)
at Walmart

Save $60.00

Why we like it

Read Mashable’s full review of the Apple AirPods Pro USB-C.

Walmart has matched Amazon’s $189 price tag on the USB-C AirPods Pro, and it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen on this pair. In the latest upgrade, Apple kept all of the features people liked about the originals — namely the actually-good active noise cancellation and the fact that they actually stay in your ear — while ditching the Lightning port for a more universal USB-C port.

Best Walmart spring sale vacuum deals

Dyson V12 Detect Slim Absolute
at Walmart

Save $150.00

Why we like it

We were already dubbing Dyson’s V12 Detect Slim as Dyson’s best bang for your buck when it was full price. Now that it’s less than $500, this Mashable Choice winner should be a no brainer for most households.

The V12 Detect Slim rocks Dyson’s best feature on a compact body that’s 24% lighter than its bigger sibling, the V15 Detect. That feature is a dust-detecting laser that sets the Detect series apart from all other stick vacuums. For plush carpeting, a motorized cleaning head is also included, and all debris collected is sent through a HEPA filter. Other attachments include the mini motorized hair screw tool (a must for keeping up with shedding on furniture), a crevice tool, and a combination tool.

Best Walmart spring sale fitness tracker deals

Fitbit Sense 2
at Walmart

Save $61.00

Why we like it

Mashable dug the original Fitbit Sense when it came out in 2020. The second version, which arrived two years later, features upgrades like a better EDA sensor and a physical button over the old haptic one. These add to the original features that make the Sense such a solid budget Apple Watch alternative, including a heart monitor and built-in GPS.

While we didn’t choose the Fitbit Sense 2 as the best fitness tracker deal at Amazon’s sale, we are highlighting it at Walmart — because it’ll save you an extra $12 to $20 over buying at Amazon, depending on the color you choose.

Best Walmart spring sale gaming deals

Why we like it

Walmart’s MSRP on this Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PS5 Slim bundle is inflated a bit, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the bundle is still a complete steal. Buying the PS5 Slim by itself would run you $499.99 either way. $499.99 is also the regular asking price for this bundle — hence the value of a bundle — so Walmart’s $449.99 price tag is technically an extra $50 discount tacked onto the already-free game.

The PS5 Slim, which hasn’t even celebrated its first half birthday yet, squeezes the disc drive and 1TB of storage of the clunkier PS5 into a more practical, compact body. One DualSense controller is also included.

Best Walmart spring sale TV deals

onn. 43-inch 4K Roku TV
at Walmart

Save $70.00

Why we like it

Walmart’s own onn. TVs are often the cheapest 4K TVs during big multi-retailer sale events, and these spring sales are no different, apparently. This 43-inch onn. 4K TV beats Amazon’s cheapest 43-inch TV by $21.99, despite both being Roku TVs. It’s not a huge difference in price, but is enough to cover a few months of one of your streaming services.
