The holidays are just around the corner, and our guests are busier than ever. Just in time, we’ve got a special present for anyone looking to get their holiday purchases fast: Same-day delivery shopped by Shipt is now available on the Target app. That means guests can get their essentials—or that special holiday treat they’re searching for—delivered right to their door in as soon as one hour with just a few taps on their phone. Bonus: There’s no membership required.

And to make it even easier for guests to get their Thanksgiving Target Run done, we’re offering free same-day delivery on orders of $75 or more when they use the Target app or Target.com from Sunday, Nov. 17 through Tuesday, Nov. 26. Hello, turkey!

“Millions of guests love using the Target app to shop, save and get what they need quickly—and it’s a game-changer during the busy holiday season,” says Dawn Block, senior vice president, digital, Target.  “Adding same-day delivery to our app is another way we’re making it easier and faster for guests to get the same great value, curated products and top-notch guest service they’ve come to expect from Target, all while placing an order online or directly from their phone.”

Guests can now get 65,000 items—including groceries, essentials, toys, baby-care products, kitchenware and more—personally shopped by Shipt Shoppers and delivered to their door through same-day delivery on the Target app (available for both iOS and Android users). Plus, they’ll have access to a bunch of perks at the same time, like 5% off their purchase with a RedCard, Target Circle offers (formerly Cartwheel) for eligible items and weekly ad promotions (like buy three items, get a $5 Target Gift Card). And don’t forget: Same-day delivery orders can still be placed directly on Target.com through the dedicated shopping experience we announced earlier this year.

With same-day delivery available on the Target app, it’s easier than ever to place an order wherever you are—Shipt Shoppers can deliver items to your home, office, hotel and more, whether you need ingredients for your festive holiday meal or are searching for gifts to check everyone off your shopping list. And orders can be placed on behalf of someone else, such as a college student or a relative who can’t easily get to a store. Guests can get same-day delivery at any time of year by becoming a Shipt member or by paying a $9.99 delivery fee per order. Bonus: Target is offering guests who have not yet signed up for a Shipt membership a free four-week trial to experience the service.

Once you have your membership (or are ready to try out the free offer or pay the one-time delivery fee), how does it all work? It’s easy! Start by downloading the Target app on your phone or device, create or enter your Target.com account and follow these steps:

  • First, Navigate to the “My Store” tab on the bottom of the app and confirm or search for your local Target store.
  • Second, Browse your store's assortment and build your list by adding items, easily finding opportunities to save.
  • Finally, Add the items from your list to your cart and place your order using same-day delivery. It’ll be delivered in as soon as an hour.

Same-day delivery on the Target app is enabled by new features that make our popular app experience even easier to use. For instance, the new “My Store” tab allows guests to easily convert their lists to a shopping cart with a “Delivery” button. Plus, guests can use the new “Discover” tab to easily navigate the app and unlock all of its features, including hot deals, ways to shop (including same-day Order Pickup and Drive Up) and seasonal content.  It’s all based on extensive research we’ve conducted to find out what guests want from their Target app.
