What should I buy from Target on Black Friday?
Last year, Target offered 50% off select toys and buy one, get one 50% off for the rest. This promotion included the season’s best and newest toys, making it a great chance to pick up gifts for the kids in your life.
Small kitchen appliances were also deeply discounted during Black Friday last year, just as they are every year. Highlights included $70 off the PowerXL Vortex Air Fryer, $100 off the Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Machine, and $45 off the 6-quart Instant Pot Duo Nova. This year, we expect to see similarly deep discounts on the same types of kitchen gear: stand mixers, electric pressure cookers, blenders, coffee makers, and the like.
Last year’s Black Friday was also a great time to buy vacuums of every type: robot, cordless, and upright. Specifically, we saw $150 off the Dyson V8 Animal, $260 off the Dyson Ball Animal 2, and $100 off the Roomba iRobot 690. For Black Friday 2020, we’ll likely see all-time lows on the latest from brands like Dyson, Bissell, Roomba, Shark, Hoover, and more.
Electronics like headphones, tablets, and smart home gear drop to record-breaking low prices every Black Friday from many retailers, including Target. Last year the 7th Gen 10.2-inch iPad was $100 off, the Beats Studio3 was $70 off, and the Google Home Mini was $30 off. Many of these discounts were price matched from other retailers like Amazon and Walmart, so if you were a REDcard holder, it was beneficial to shop the deals from Target to get an extra 5% off.
Both consoles and games saw great prices during last year’s Black Friday. All PS4 and Xbox One games were only $30, the Xbox One 1 TB console was $150 off, and many other bundle deals featured discounts on games and consoles combined. Don’t cross your fingers for deals on new consoles like the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Oculus Quest — older consoles are likely to be the only ones on sale.
What is Target Circle?
Target Circle is the retailer’s free loyalty program. It offers perks like exclusive deals, coupons, and even 1% earnings (that can’t be combined with REDcard savings). If Target is on your Black Friday hit list, it’s worth signing up for Target Circle and downloading the Target app to access exclusive discounts — it’s free to do so.
What benefits do REDcard holders get on Black Friday?
As always, REDcard holders save 5% on all orders from Target and free shipping on most things. This is extra beneficial for Black Friday when 5% savings really add up over the many purchases. REDcard holders also have a longer item return window — an extra 30 days specifically.
