If you thought Amazon was the only retailer slashing their prices this week, then think again. Many other brands are creating their own versions of Prime Day, meaning you can enjoy steep discounts even if you aren’t a Prime member. Inspired by China’s 11/11 ‘Single’s Day’, they’ve dubbed this new U.S. retail holiday ’10/10′.
In the app space, for instance, shoppers can download subscriptions to a number of top-rated programs — from personalized fitness trainers to foreign language software — at a fraction of the original cost. We’ve even spotted markdowns upwards of 95% off retail price tags. And unlike Prime Day deals, you don’t have to wait for these items to ship to enjoy them.
Ahead, we’re rounding up 10 useful everyday apps for 10/10. Better yet, shoppers who use the code OCTSALE20 at checkout can save an additional 20% off their purchase.
