If there’s still one thing we can count on in this unpredictable world, it’s that Target and Amazon will never stop competing with each other over sales. Two days after Amazon officially confirmed Prime Day 2020, Target has announced a major sale of its own. Target Deal Days returns this year with a blowout sale offering online deals on hundreds of thousands of items. Oh, and it takes place October 13 and 14, which, coincidentally, are the same days as Prime Day.
Target Deal Days 2020 marks the beginning of a holiday shopping season that will include “Black Friday pricing” throughout the entire month of November, according to a press release. This clarifies a previous statement Target had made saying that its “biggest holiday deals” would be available starting in October; now, it seems, Black Friday branding won’t begin until November as usual.
Still, we expect Target Deal Days will offer some great deals as it did last year. Notably, Target had a rare deal on 12-month Switch Online family memberships last year, dropping them to $28 each. It also included cheap Xbox One console bundles that came with $50 Target gift cards, the PlayStation Classic for 20 bucks, and various discounts on both physical and digital games, so it’ll be worth keeping an eye on what the sale offers this year. Nearly all deals will be available with Target’s contactless Drive Up and Order Pickup options as well if you want to pick up your order right away, and some deals will even be eligible for same-day delivery. An early batch of Target Deal Days offers will be available starting October 5.
