Target Black Friday Promotions: 20% Off Coupon, 15% Off Sitewide

targetbf2017bTarget has announced their Black Friday and Cyber Monday week promotions. Here are the more general deals and those that can be used on everyday purchases.

  • Wednesday 11/22. REDcard holders always get 5% off, but on Wednesday 11/22 they will also get early access to select Black Friday deals on Target.com.
  • Black Friday 11/24. If you spend $50 at Target in-store or Target.com on Friday 11/24, you will receive a 20% off coupon good on a future shopping visit between 11/28 and 12/10/17.
  • Cyber Monday 11/27. Target.com will be offering extra 15% off site-wide on Monday 11/27. Last year, there was a similar promotion where certain brands that rarely go on sale like Apple and Kitchenaid items were included. Gift cards will probably be excluded.
  • Early December? Last year, Target offered 10% off gift cards for a limited-time in early December. I will update if that is available again.

Look for free shipping on most orders and free same-day pick-up in store. Target REDcard holders get 5% off most items.

If you shop online, don’t forget to stack the savings from a cashback shopping portal. Many offer new customers bonuses, including eBates ($10 bonus), TopCashBack (bonus varies, but often has best rates), and BeFrugal ($10 bonus). eBates even offers cashback in some physical stores now as well. I have cashed out of all of these before.
