Amazon Prime Day: Holiday shopping gets early start; Walmart, Best Buy, Target join in

NEW YORK (AP) — Halloween is still weeks away, but retailers are hoping you’ll start your holiday shopping now.

The big push is coming from Amazon, which is holding its annual Prime Day sales event Tuesday and Wednesday, kickstarting the holiday shopping season. It’s the first time Prime Day has been held in the fall, after the pandemic forced it to postpone from July.

Walmart, Best Buy and Target are also offering online deals over the same two days, hoping to lure deal seekers.

“Beat the holiday hustle,” Amazon’s site said on Tuesday. “Holiday savings start now,” a message on Target.com said.

There’s good reason for the early start. Retailers are worried that a rush of online orders later could lead to shipping delays in November and December. And stores want to avoid big crowds inside their stores during the pandemic. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said

This Major Kosas Giveaway Is Another Reason to Join Well+

At Well+Good, we love to be your go-tos, keeping you up to date on everything wellness (and beauty!) related. So, no doubt, you’ve heard us name drop Kosas before. The brand is one of our faves because of the seriously smart formulations that work on lips, lashes, and let’s be real, every square inch of skin we can slather the brand’s dreamy Tinted Face Oil ($42) onto.

If you’re not familiar with Kosas, let us quickly bring you up to speed. The brand began by bringing hyper-pigmented, clean lipsticks to the market in 2015. Notoriously, concocting cleaner formulas that still have a solid color payoff has been difficult, but Kosas raised the expectation of what formulas can promise while excluding decidedly gross ingredients from their formulations (cough, cough: crushed bugs).

Ever since, the brand has led the charge in creating makeup that is also good for your skin. A
