The countdown to Black Friday and Cyber Week is on, and Target teams are hard at work preparing to serve millions of guests. Store teams are stocking shelves with hot gifts and planning for a safe and fun experience. Our trained experts in areas like electronics, beauty, and apparel and accessories are so ready to help guests find everything they need. We’re gearing up to offer thousands of epic deals in stores and online, and ship out millions of items for delivery.

Why all the extra effort? For many of our guests, shopping Target is a special part of their family’s Thanksgiving tradition. So we’re making this year an event to remember—no matter when, where or how they choose to shop.

Can’t wait to score these amazing deals? Plan ahead with some handy tips.

Get a head start with your REDcard
On Nov. 21, REDcard holders get early access to more than 100 Black Friday deals on Be sure to save your REDcard to your "wallet" in the Target app or your account to access the offer. As always, using a REDcard saves you 5% on nearly every purchase—and new this year, select sale items will be available through our Order Pickup and Drive Up services.

On Friday, you can even use our popular Drive Up service on most items and we’ll bring your order out to your car.

Line up for doorbusters
Love dashing for deals? Head to the store after dinner—our doors open at 5 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving.
