Every year, Target offers great deals on

Black Friday
and 2020 will be no different. Though you can’t expect the same experience of mile-long lines and overflowing carts in-store, there will still be excellent deals ahead. 

Target’s Black Friday 2020 deals have already begun and they will continue through the end of the month. For the best early deals and answers to any questions you might have, keep reading below.

Best early Target home and kitchen deals

This 3-piece set comes with two skillets and a griddle, all of which are nonstick and dishwasher-safe. Down to $10, it’s an excellent value for a cookware bundle backed by a lifetime warranty from Farberware.

Though it’s typically listed at a higher MSRP, the Deebot usually sells for $180 across online retailers. Nevertheless, this drop to $140 is a great new low price for this smart assistant-compatible, multisurface robot vacuum.

The i3+ costs considerably more than your average robot vacuum, but it also does a lot more than the average robot vacuum. It develops personalized cleaning schedules, empties itself, and right now, it’s only $400.

Best Target smart home and tech deals

If you have a Google Assistant-compatible smart home, the Nest Hub is a nice smart display to add to your setup. Discounted by $40, this is an excellent and rare low price.

Sales on the Ring Doorbell 3 aren’t exactly rare, but this drop to $140 is an especially good deal. The third Ring Doorbell improves on earlier models with better motion detection, Wi-Fi connectivity, and audio privacy.

Though it typically sells for a little bit less than the $350 price it’s marked for, this drop to $250 is still an exceptional price for this 43-inch LG TV. It’s also compatible with Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Apple Airplay 2.

Discounted in all three band colors, this is an excellent deal on the Fitbit Inspire 2 activity tracker. It keeps tabs on your heart rate, fitness, and sleep schedules and new premium members get a free year of Fitbit Premium.

Best Target bedding and mattress deals

A new addition to Casper’s lineup of mattresses, the Snug is an affordable and breathable foam bed that typically runs a little under $500 for a Queen. Right now, it’s discounted to $445 — an even better price for what you’re getting.

Though it may not seem like the biggest price drop, Linenspa mattresses already start at a low price point, so $160 is a solid deal for an 8-inch Queen-size mattress. This hybrid option has both springs and memory foam for a medium-firm feel in a low profile.

Filled with small glass beads box-quilted into place for a smooth feel, this 12-pound weighted blanket provides gentle and even pressure to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. It’s only $29 right now, an excellent $20 discount from its typical selling price and a low-risk introduction to weighted blankets.

Best Target toy and gaming deals

A great gift for any gamer in your life, this headset is cross-compatible with Xbox, Playstation, and PC. It’s an excellent price for a gaming headset and all of the available colors are discounted so you can choose your favorite.

A great gift idea for the new PC gamer in your life, this bundle from SteelSeries includes a headset, keyboard, mouse, and mousepad. It’s usually only $130, great value for what you get, but right now, it’s available for even less at $100.

Board games often see discounts close to Black Friday, but these deals tend to be short-lived and run out of stock quickly. Catan is a prime example of this: it’s a popular strategy board game that makes a great gift for kids and adults alike — and right now it’s only $25.

Best Target audio deals

We consider the Powerbeats Pro to be the best alternative to Airpods for iPhone users. Right now, you can buy a pair for only $160, an excellent $90 drop.

Discounted by $30, this is a great price for a pair of lightweight and foldable headphones with a 15-hour battery life.

The Galaxy Buds are good-looking and very comfortable to wear, with decent sound quality, and plenty of Samsung-only features.

Best Target fashion deals

Several pajama sets are currently discounted from Target, including this black pine-cone print button-up set. This specific pair usually sells for $30, so $20 is a great price to buy some for yourself or as a gift.

A wide variety of prints, patterns, and solids are available for these pajama pants, and all of them are discounted right now. Made in both normal and big and tall sizing, you’re sure to find a pair for yourself or as a gift at a nice price.

Every week of November, Target is offering new Black Friday deals, with ads provided the week before. Here are the specifics:

Target has yet to announce its official hours on Black Friday, November 27, but we do know that stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. Deals are going to be available both in-stores and online — though you might have more luck finding things in stock when shopping online. We’ll update this section as soon as store hours are clarified. 

If you’re planning to brave the crowds and wait in the inevitable lines come Black Friday, Target offers this handy online feature to save your spot in line. Simply enter your zip code to find your closest Target location, and it will enable you to “hop in line” before leaving the house. 

During Black Friday, Target will be featuring discounts on toys, kitchen goods, vacuums, electronics, and gaming gear

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.

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. 

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.
