Target has its own sale next week, a day after Amazon’s Prime Day

Add Target to the growing list of retailers that aren’t going to sit idly by, as Amazon hosts its fourth annual Prime Day event. eBay, Google, and Dell are just some of the companies that are hosting some sort of sale these days, with Dell going as far as labeling its events as “Black Friday in July” and “Cyber Week in July.”


It might not be as hot as Amazon’s Prime Day, but you should still check out Target’s sale, as the company is teasing plenty of deals, across product categories.

Amazon’s Prime Day 2018 sale kicks off on Monday, July 16th, and lasts for 36 hours. Target’s deals will be available on Tuesday, July 17th, according to CNET.

Here’s what you can expect on Target’s no-name, anti-Prime Day day:

Spend $100 on Target.com on July 17 and get a free six-month membership for same-day delivery, shopped by Shipt (nearly $50 in savings)

  • 30 percent off Target-exclusive home brands
  • Sale on cookware, small appliances and floorcare
  • 25 percent off beauty and personal care
  • Sale on select top toy brands
  • Spend $20, save $5 on books
  • 30 percent off Target-exclusive kids’ home brands
  • Up to 30 percent off top Google products
  • Up to 30 percent off select baby gear
  • Free shipping on next-day Target Restock delivery orders on July 17

You know what should catch your tech eye immediately? That 30% discount on Google products, because it means you can get cheaper Home speakers and Chromecasts. And you know who won’t run Google deals, don’t you? Hint, it’s that retailer who’s hosting a Prime Day event to sell cheap Echos and Fire products.

On top of that, you should check out Target’s deal section too, which already lists several deals, including an iPhone X and iPhone 8 offer that nets you a free $100 Target gift card with each purchase. The deals will probably be updated by Tuesday, to include Target’s new promos listed above.

Target Launches iTunes Digital Card Sale: Buy One, Get One 20% Off

Target this week has launched one of the first notable App Store and iTunes gift card discounts since the holidays, offering shoppers the chance to buy one iTunes card at regular price and get a second one for 20 percent off. While not as good as the s…

Best Buy and Target sell the Pixel 2 for $300 less

Christmas is usually a good excuse to get a new smartphone, especially a flagship device that’s more expensive. But if you haven’t bought one, you should know there’s a great Pixel 2 deal available right now from various retailers.

Before you get too excited, however, you should know there are plenty of compromises involved.

First of all, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones aren’t the Pixels we wanted. The two handsets were affected by various issues. Google fixed some of them, while others will be fixed in the future. If that’s not a dealbreaker for you, then you’ll probably want to take advantage of this deal as soon as possible. After all, a $300 discount on either model sounds great, especially since you don’t have to trade-in your old smartphone.

But wait, there’s more. The deal is useful only if you’re okay with Verizon being your carrier for the following two years. You don’t have to sign a contract with the mobile operator, but the Pixel 2 deal is only good as long as you’re getting a device payment plan of 24 months. The $300 discount isn’t applied at purchase. Instead, it’s divided over the two years. The only way to take advantage of it is to stick with Verizon.

The Pixel 2 deal is available from Verizon, which launched it in retail stores about a month ago. But you can also get it online from the carrier. Furthermore, starting this week, Best Buy and Target have joined. The best part about it is that Target is willing to sweeten the deal, throwing in a $250 gift card with new lines of service or upgrades.

Check out the deal over at Best Buy and Target.

Target announces its own Green Monday sale and other shopping events

Green Monday may be a sales term coined by eBay many years to describe a brand new sales event, but it’s not just eBay that offers Green Monday deals any more.

Green Monday is “celebrated” on the second Monday of December every year, and while it’s not as big as Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the sales event is still something to consider checking out, especially if your Christmas shopping isn’t done.

This year, Green Monday falls on December 11th, which means we’re just a few days away from it. eBay the other day unveiled its own Green Monday sale, which contains several deals on gadgets and electronics.

But Target also took the wraps off its Green Monday deals. Target calls it its “biggest Green Monday sale ever on Target.com.”

The retailer is ready to let you save $20 for every $100 spent online, which is a great promo. However, you only get to save up to $100, which means you have to spend $500 on Target products to take advantage of it.

The company did not highlight any particular discounts in its press announcement, so feel free to browse its online store as you plan your Green Monday shopping spree.

Additionally, Target offers other similar deals. All weekend long you’ll save $10 for $50 spent on toys in retail stores and online while paying $100 for toys nets you $25 in savings. The offer is good from Sunday, December 10th, through Saturday, December 16th. However, you can’t combine the toys deal with the Green Monday sale.

Finally, this weekend, you’ll be able to save extra cash on various products included in Target’s Weekend Deals, as follows:

  • 30 percent off apparel for men and women
  • 20 percent off shoes and boots
  • 20 percent off holiday lights
  • 20 percent off natural beauty products
  • 15 percent off bed and bath

All in all, Target is hosting three separate sales events, from December 9th through December 16th.
