Similar to Walmart, Target holds a lot of sales before Black Friday during November. Thanks to the recent release of the circular on Black Friday, we now have a clear picture of all the offers you will see if you choose to buy Target on Black Friday.
Target’s Black Friday schedule
Like other stores, Target’s event is more of a weekly sale, not just one day. The seller will start working on Sunday, November 21, and the offers will arrive and go out until Saturday, November 27. This means that you will be able to make a lot of purchases before the 26th, but several offers will be available only on that day.
- Sunday, November 21 – Online sales begin
- Thursday, November 25 – Stores closed, online sales continue
- Friday, November 26 – Certain opening hours depend on location
Target Black Friday – Offers start on 21.11
Target has a lot of solid offers in many product categories this year, although many overlap with other retailers. You can get the Nintendo Switch bundled with Mario Kart 8 and three months of Nintendo Online for $ 299.99, a free $ 50 Target gift card when you purchase any Oculus Quest 2 VR headset, and the usual collection of big discounts on TVs.
For Apple products, you can get up to $ 250 off the iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 when you add a new line, or up to $ 50 off when upgrading. You will also receive a $ 140 Target gift card when you activate iPhone SE (2nd generation) in stores.
One of the more significant Apple-related offers on Target will bring you a $ 15 Target gift card when you buy $ 100 or more in Apple Gift Cards. Retail-specific gift card offers like this are now the only ones available for Apple gift cards, so if you are a regular Target customer, this one might be best for you.
Below you will find Target’s best deals for Apple products this Black Friday, but if you’re buying AirPods, it’s better to head to Walmart. That retailer will have AirPods Pro with MagSafe priced at $ 159.00, compared to Target’s price of $ 189.99.
Like all other major retailers, and similar to previous holiday seasons, Target offers a Nintendo Switch package with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month Nintendo Switch Online for $ 299.99. This basically gives you a free copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You can also buy some deals on Switch games, including Super Mario Bros. In Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Maker 2 and more for $ 39.99.
Target will also have Ring Fit Adventure on sale for $ 54.99 ($ 25 discount), Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit for $ 59.99 ($ 40 discount), and you can get free Mario plush when you buy Super Mario Odyssey or Super Mario Party.
Other offers for video games include $ 29.99 games such as Deathloop, Guardians of the Galaxy, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and more. Games for $ 39.99, such as Far Cry 6, Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, Demon’s Souls and more, are also on sale. In total, video game sales start at $ 14.99 for select games.
Target will also offer a $ 20 discount on game subscription services such as the PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass.
