Target has released its Black Friday ad for 2017, and it includes deals & discounts happening on Black Friday plus pre-Black Friday discount events, too.

Target stores will open at 6PM on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 23, with Black Friday deals, and stay open until midnight. Stores will then close for six hours, re-opening at 6AM on Black Friday, November 24, 2017.

But wait! There are pre-Thanksgiving Target Black Friday deals, too!

So you’ll want to know these dates as well:

  • Today, November 6, you can score some “preview” Black Friday deals, including big discounts on Beats Studio2 headphones, the Jetson V12 Hoverboard, Hoover WindTunnel 2 vacuum and more. In store and online. Go here for today’s Target Black Friday preview.
  • Wednesday, November 22 – Target REDcard credit card holders get first dibs on over 100 Black Friday deals via the “Early Access” event for cardholders on Target.com. As you know if you’re a Target credit card holder, you’ll also automatically get the customary 5% for paying with the REDcard.

The Deals That Jump Out

Here’s a sample of the Target Black Friday deals just announced that jumped out at us:

  • Westinghouse 55” UHD (Ultra High-Definition) TV for $249.99

Bonus for Shopping Target on Black Friday

If you take advantage of the deals on Black Friday itself, November 24, 2017, spending at least $50 at a Target store or online at Target.com, you’ll get an additional coupon for 20% off a future shopping trip at Target. (Note that the window for the future shopping trip is short: you must use the coupon between November 28 and December 10.)
