Amazon Prime Day 2020 is almost here and, like we reported in our history of the retailer’s largest sales event, other retailers have come to host big sales of their own: Wayfair, for example, is running several big sales right now — as is Walmart. Target, too, is bringing back its annual Deal Days event on Oct. 13 and Oct. 14 (the same days Amazon is running Prime Day). While anyone can shop during the two-day sale, you can save more if you download the Target App and join Target Circle, the retailer’s free loyalty program. Here’s what that gets you:
- Circle members will be able to access exclusive deals
- Members get one percent back on every purchase to spend next time
- Members get five percent off their purchase on their birthdays
To help you navigate the best options during Target’s Deal Days event, we compiled some of the best options on everything from home and kitchen products and tech to toys, fashion and more. Whether you’re looking to do some early holiday shopping or need to upgrade your work-from-home station, here’s how to find the best value.
