Retail Mano a Mano

As Walmart fans know, the retailer is neck and neck with Amazon when it comes to cheap prices, so it stands to reason that these two retail giants are in a constant struggle to win over shoppers with lower prices. So, which of the two offers the best deals? As you might assume, it depends on the product. In taking a look at 25 different items, Walmart edged out Amazon with better prices in 14 instances over 11. Read on to find out where Walmart walloped Amazon, and where Amazon edged out its main competition.

Prices and availability are subject to change.
