The holiday countdown is on, and the hustle and bustle is officially underway. If you’re searching for a way to get what you need fast this season, we have good news: Shopping at Target is easier than ever with our same-day services. Whether you want your orders ready in store, at your door or in your car—we’ve got you, in as soon as one hour.

We’ve scaled our suite of delivery and pickup services nationwide ahead of the holiday season. And it’s all enabled by our expert team members, who are there to help guests every step of the way. In fact, we’ve added nearly $50 million more in payroll in our stores vs. last holiday and doubled the amount of team members focused on fulfilling orders—all to serve guests so they can get what they want, when they want it.

Read on for all the ways Target is delivering for the holidays:

  • Drive Up: On the go, but in need of holiday essentials (like that last-minute gift)? No prob, with Drive Up, our guests’ highest-rated service. Simply order your items through the Target app, drive into the designated spot in Target’s parking lot an hour later and we’ll bring your bags to your car in less than two minutes. And this one’s particularly special to the Bullseye: Target’s the only retailer to have a service like Drive Up in all 50 states, so you have 1,750 stores to choose from. (Yep, we’ve got you covered even when you’re staying with the in-laws).
  • Same-day delivery with Shipt: Nothing takes the stress out of holiday shopping quite like same-day delivery. Build a basket on or the Target app and let a Shipt Shopper do the rest. They’ll have your order delivered to your door in as soon as an hour. Traveling for the holidays? No prob. You can have your Shipt order delivered to a hotel, Airbnb, or another holiday destination. Bonus: For those without an annual membership, you can pay per order. Plus, you can take advantage of RedCard savings (hello, 5% discount) and Target Circle perks. Same-day delivery’s available at 1,500 stores in 48 states.
  • Order Pickup: Available in all 1,800+ Target stores: Shop on or the Target app, and your order will be waiting for you at the Guest Services counter at your local store in about an hour. Pop in, grab your order and go, or stay and browse the store for some holiday inspiration—all with the peace of mind that you’ve got what you need.
  • Free Shipping: Free shipping is available to all guests for the holidays, with orders arriving as early as the next day. From Nov. 1 through Dec. 21, you can get hundreds of thousands of items on and the Target app with free shipping—no minimum purchase or membership required.
