The weekend is here and a new wave of Target Black Friday deals just went live. The retailer is offering aggressive discount on iPads, headphones, kitchen appliances, and select toy brands.
This is my 16th year covering Black Friday deals. While in previous years I've recommended waiting till at least Thanksgiving week before making purchases, this year's sales are strong enough that I'm recommending consumers start their shopping now. So below I've called out all of the best sales happening this weekend at Target. If a competitor is offering similar pricing, I'll highlight that as well.
Remember, Target has also started its holiday price match guarantee. That means if you buy something now and its price drops on or before December 24, you can reach out to Target for a price adjustment. Target will also price match select competitors within 14 days of purchase. (Competitors include Amazon, Apple, Best Buy, Home Depot, Walmart, Wayfair, Costco, GameStop, and others).
