Wal-Mart Takes on Amazon's 'Prime Day' With Online Sale

Wal-Mart Stores is launching an online discount sale on Wednesday to counter Amazon.com's highly-publicized "Prime Day", a shopping event for members of its Amazon Prime service on the same day. The world's largest retailer also cut the size of the minimum order eligible for free shipping to $35 from $50 for at least 30 days. Spokesman Bao Nguyen said, the discount sale will offer rollback prices, or discounts, on more than 2,000 items including electronics, toys, baby and home products for three months.
