Target Black Friday deals available online now
Google Home Hub, $100 (save $50)
Doorbuster (limited quantities): OK Google, what’s new? This cameraless, petite smart screen will blend into any room. And makes perfect sense in the kitchen, as a photo frame or a smart home control panel.
Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, $299 (save $60)
Nov. 22 update: Target lists this item as “temporarily out of stock” but we will update this page if it becomes available again at the same price.
Microsoft Xbox One S 1TB with Minecraft bundle, $230 (save $120)
Doorbuster (limited quantities): If an Xbox is on your list, this deal can save you a bundle. (Note this isn’t the more powerful Xbox One X.)
Dea available now.
Amazon Echo Dot (2018), $24 (half price)
Doorbuster (limited quantities): It’s tiny, cheap and sounds better than any Dot yet. If you haven’t taken the Alexa plunge yet, here’s your excuse.
Google Home Mini, $25 (half price)
Google’s answer to Amazon’s Alexa is a tiny, always-listening speaker that responds to “OK, Google” with everything Google Assistant has to offer. At this price it’s easy to put one in a secondary room.
JBL Flip 4, $60 (save $40)
Fully waterproof and available in multiple colors, the Flip 4 is one of the best speakers in its size class, and this is a great price.
Bose SoundLink Micro, $70 (save $30)
Doorbuster (limited quantities): Bose speakers almost never get deep discounts, so this is a sweet sale on what is arguably the best sounding speaker in its tiny size class.
PlayStation 4 1TB with Spider-Man bundle, $200 (save $100)
Nov. 22 update: Target lists this deal as “temporarily out of stock.” This is the same great bundle that’s already out of stock at Walmart, Target, GameStop and Amazon. Retailers tend to get new stock in throughout the sale period, however, so you may want to follow the PS4 site for updates — it’s not always 100 percent accurate, but it does have nifty links to major retailer pages.
Xbox One X 1TB for $400 (save $100)
The most powerful gaming console on the market is available for a record-low price starting now. Microsoft.com also has this deal, and other retailers could follow suit.
Amazon Fire TV Stick, $25 (save $15)
On Sale Now
It’s not quite as good as Roku in our book, but if you’re a fan of Alexa or deep into Amazon’s ecosystem anyway, this price is almost too good to pass up — especially if you miss Amazon’s own sale.
Deal available now.
Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones, $90 (save $100)
Target kicked off this deal early for its REDcard holders. Available in a range of colors, Beats’ wireless sports headphones list for $200 but you can find them for much less. At this discount they’re a good deal for the Beats fan on your list.
Deal available now.
70-inch Vizio E70-F3: $750 (save $150)
Thur 22 Nov update: Target lists the TV as out of stock in stores near us and the website is unable to find stock to ship online. It may become back in stock during the sale period and we’ll update this article if that happens.
We called the E-Series the cheapest home-theater-worthy TV, in large part because it’s the least expensive with full-array local dimming — a feature that goes further than any other for improving LCD picture quality. This huge Vizio is truly home-theater-sized, and this is a great price.
Deal available now at Target.
TCL 55S405 55-inch 4K HDR Roku TV, $350 (save $30)
Thur 22 Nov update: Target’s website lists the TV as out of stock both in store and online. It’s also not available anymore on Amazon. We’ll update this article if it comes back in stock during the sale period.
The best price yet for our favorite budget 55-inch TV recommendation for people who put a higher priority on streaming and convenience than they do on picture quality.
UE Wonderboom waterproof Bluetooth speaker: $50 (save $10)
You can pick up certain colors of this highly rated little speaker right now for as little as $60 on Amazon, but Target’s discount is still a significant savings.
Fitbit Versa, $150 (save $50)
Less than half the cost of an Apple Watch, the Versa is the best fusion of smartwatch and general fitness tracker anywhere near this price.
Deal available now.
Sony PlayStation VR bundle with Creed and Superhot, $250 (save $100)
This one is temporarily out of stock, we recommend heading to Walmart for some really great PlayStation VR deals. With Tetris Effect, Astrobot and Beat Saber coming out in quick succession, now is a great time to pick up a unit.
