Amazon isn't the only retailer with a major sales event on the horizon. The Walmart Deals event kicks off today with deals going live at 12 p.m. (ET) for members and 5pm for non-members. However, Walmart is offering a killer deal anyone can get now.

Through July 18, you can get a Walmart Plus membership for just $49/year. That's 50% off its regular $98/year price and a rare deal that Walmart typically reserves only for Black Friday season.
