If you felt left out of Amazon Prime Day this year because you’re not a Prime member, it’s understandable. Watching everyone else quickly grab deals you don’t have access to can inspire a major case of FOMO. The good news is, however, that other retailers are still offering their own competing sales even despite the fact Prime Day is nearly over. Many don’t require you to pony up for a premium subscription, either.

Right now, for example, retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, and Target are holding their own sales events and offering some good deals on noise-canceling headphones, robot vacuums, and other gadgets. In fact, in some cases, they’re actually matching Amazon’s day two prices. There are a lot of deals available, but we’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the very best below.
