It’s finally here. The official kickoff to the season, the big kahuna of savings, the “make-a-list-and-check-it-twice” starting line. Target’s 2018 Black Friday ad just dropped and it does not disappoint. You can start saving this second with our Black Friday Preview Sale. More big news? We’ve got some new mobile tech that’ll let you skip those Black Friday lines!

“We know many of our guests look forward to our Black Friday deals every year, and today, they can start shopping and save big on some of the hottest items of the season,” says Mark Tritton, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, Target. “Combined with the unmatched easy ways to shop with us—including new mobile technology that allows guests to skip the line for an even more convenient checkout—we’re confident guests will save time and money, and experience the joy of the season by choosing Target.”

Let’s get this party started: Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day deets
Go ahead and bask in every gotta-have-it deal in our Black Friday ad. A few faves: 15+ TVs under $300, our lowest price of the season on Madden 19, Density 2 and more top-selling video games ($29.99 each). Fifty percent off select games and puzzles, plus $10 larger-than-life plush (a guest favorite). Or cook up something special with the Instant Pot 7-in-1 Duo 6-qt. pressure cooker for $69.95 with a bonus $10 Target GiftCard. And outfit your family for the holidays with great deals on apparel and grab-and-go gifts (tees starting at $3, sleepwear at $5 and sweaters for $10? Yes, please.) Black Friday deals start early Thanksgiving morning and Target stores open at 5 p.m. Thanksgiving night through 1 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, reopening Friday at 7 a.m. If “first-in-line” isn’t your style, Order Pickup will be available for most items on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, and for the first time, load up on great deals without leaving the car on Black Friday with our popular Drive Up service. Easy, peasy. Oh, and one more surprise: When you spend $50 in store or online or scan the wallet feature in the Target app in stores on Friday, Nov. 23, we’ll share a coupon for 20 percent off a future holiday shopping trip (good Nov. 27-Dec. 8).

Pssst… the secret to skipping those lines entirely? New mobile checkout, now available at all Target stores across the country. It’s super easy: Team members use a handheld device to help you checkout from anywhere in the store.
