Better than Prime Day? These 4 boating deals show why it’s worth looking beyond Amazon

Prime Day isn't just about Jeff Bezos and co. There are plenty of retailers offering Prime Day-rivalling boating deals today...

With thousands of deals, it’s easy to get caught up in the Prime Day/Big Deal Days hype, but this shopping extravaganza is bigger than Amazon these days – lots of other retailers who don’t want to miss out on your valuable custom are offering big discounts that make Amazon’s Prime Day boating deals seem stingy by comparison.

There are plenty of reasons why you might want to avoid shopping through Amazon this week, not least the requirement that you sign up to Prime to get the best deals, and the good news is you don’t have to.

The following deals are much better than anything we could find for the same or equivalent products on Amazon, so fill your baskets!

All the prices below have been checked and updated for Day 2 of Amazon Big Deal Days. A word of warning though, when Amazon sales stop, the others tend to follow suit, so don’t hang about – these deals will likely be gone by midnight.
