There is no other store like Target. While online shopping does not generate the same level of excitement as getting lost in Bullseye’s Playground, the Target Deal Days sale provides a compelling reason to browse the virtual aisles. (As if any of us needed another reason to make a quick run to Target.)
The sale runs through July 13, and while it may compete directly with Amazon Prime Day, the vast majority of these deals do not require a membership to shop. Some of the discounts are exclusive to Target Circle members, but membership is free and worthwhile if you shop at Target even occasionally.
The WIRED Gear team conducted year-round product evaluations and manually combed through hundreds of thousands of deals to compile this list. Crossed-out items are no longer available or no longer discounted. Our Amazon Prime Day coverage page contains the most recent articles, while our Prime Day Shopping Tips will assist you in avoiding bad deals. A 1-Year Subscription to WIRED is also available for $5 ($25 off) here.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on a quick call, watching Will Byers cry over his crush, or listening to Selena perform Bidi Bidi Bom Bom if you have the Google Pixel Buds A-Series. With their ergonomic design, balanced sound, and IPX4 water resistance, these are our favorite earbuds for the majority of people.
Gloomhaven is among the most popular and costly tabletop games available. Jaws of the Lion can be played independently or as an expansion to the original game. It is suitable for two or more 14-year-old or older players.
A variety of Lego sets, ranging from $10 Classic Brick kits to Minecraft-themed models, are on sale. The inclusive Duplo and Friends collections are included in this sale. The quality of the deal varies depending on which set you’re considering, but the discounts are generally good, especially for parents seeking summertime entertainment for their children.
Target Only Circle Members
This workbook is a good option for kindergarten-bound children, and the Target Circle coupon brings the price down to $3. When available, choose free in-store pickup to avoid shipping costs. Check out these deals on school supplies for additional student savings.
This sale features nearly 50,000 titles, including children’s classics and adult suspense novels. At checkout, the discount will be automatically applied.
Household and Outdoor Deals
Our recommended budget carpet cleaner is frequently on sale, so there’s no need to rush to add it to your cart. However, if you’re already shopping, we think you’ll like this one for small stains (if you have a big old house that needs serious deep cleaning, maybe go for something bigger). The trigger for solution dispensing is located on the handle, making it portable and easy to use. Separate tanks for clean and dirty water that can be removed for rinsing are also available. Amazon will meet or beat this price.
The larger Hoover SmartWash that we like is also on sale at Target, though it’s currently less expensive on Amazon.
There are numerous clothing and footwear on sale. There are options available for men, women, and children. In addition to shirts and pants, you can also find discounts on shoes and swimwear. On the product page, prices are listed.
Despite the fact that it’s not difficult to find discounts on stand mixers during shopping holidays, this model comes in a variety of unique and attractive colors. KitchenAid mixers are well-known for a reason. They are excellent for baking and cooking in general. Wait until Black Friday to purchase these if you’re looking for the absolute lowest price (possibly $200 to $250).
These bad boys scream “college” like nothing else. These pillows are never truly comfortable, but they are useful for homework, reading in bed, and movie nights. This one features a fluffy exterior for added coziness.
In recent years, these types of clothing storage racks have gained popularity online. They are ideal for small apartments or bedrooms, especially if storage space is limited. This rack has side shelves for holding shoes or storage bins, a feature that is uncommon in similarly priced alternatives. Consider the coolness of Generation Z an added bonus.
Wellness and Beauty Offers
There are numerous inexpensive massage guns available (and we like a number of them), but the Pro is the best of Theragun’s line. Therabody’s Theraguns are comparable to Kleenex in the world of percussion instruments. It is the brand’s quietest device and comes with five attachment heads for tenderizing various muscles.
If you want a Theragun but want to spend as little as possible, the Mini is also discounted for $160 ($40 off). However, there are superior alternatives to the Mini. The triangle designs of the other Theraguns make them ergonomically superior. The Theragun Prime, which we did not test, is available for $250 (a $50 discount).
We believe most people, including athletes, would be fine with the Theragun Elite, but the Pro is the beast of the lineup, emitting 60 pounds of force compared to the Elite’s 40 pounds. It also has a rotatable arm, making it even simpler to position the attachments precisely. If you have the money to spend, you will enjoy it, but $500 on sale is a hefty price.
You can still enjoy Therabody’s technology without spending hundreds of dollars. This Wave Roller combines conventional foam rolling with massage-like vibrations. It will not penetrate knots as effectively, but it can be paired with a cheaper massage gun if necessary.
Smart Home Deals
Google Nest Audio’s sound quality is surprisingly good for a smart speaker. We enjoy connecting two of them for enhanced audio quality, and this sale makes it easy to justify doing so. The Nest Mini Smart Speaker is also on sale for $30 ($20 off), allowing you to purchase a device with a smaller profile or expand your Nest ecosystem.
A smart display is extremely versatile, functioning as a video player, a means of communication, or a digital picture frame if that’s your thing. We only recommend purchasing the Nest Hub Max when it is on sale, despite the fact that it is frequently on sale. If video chat isn’t your thing, the Nest Hub (2nd Gen) Smart Display is currently on sale for $55 ($45 off) — that’s $111 less than the Max for a still-great smart display!
Nest Cam is the best option for homeowners seeking to enhance their home security. It is compatible with Google Assistant, offers 1080p video with HDR and night vision, and has a high-quality speaker and microphone. The Nest Cam (Indoor, Wired) offers a wired indoor option for $79 ($21 off).
During the dog days of summer, temperatures can be oppressive and sometimes incapacitating. By learning your preferred temperature settings and adjusting accordingly, the Nest Thermostat can help you keep your home cooler while saving you money. In addition, by making intelligent temperature adjustments, you will gradually contribute to the preservation of the environment by reducing your energy consumption.
The Nest (Doorbell) is magnificent! No, in fact. This would likely be our top-recommended video doorbell camera if it weren’t so pricey, so this is a great opportunity to get something a little better for a lot less money. This is the lowest price it has ever been, a third less than normal.
Not all televisions are intelligent, but fortunately, they do not have to wish for a brain like the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Simply connect a Chromecast to Google TV, and voilà! With the included remote, you’ll have all the benefits of a smart TV (YouTube, Netflix, and other apps) at your fingertips.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro received a rare 9/10 rating from WIRED, which is a pretty big deal around here. We absolutely adored the camera’s Real Tone feature, which captures different skin tones exceptionally well. In addition, it has a long-lasting battery, a silky OLED display, and an astoundingly quick refresh rate. If you don’t need all of the Pro’s features, you could purchase the Google Pixel 6 Android Smartphone (256GB) for $599 ($100 off).
Deals on the Rest of the Items
This is a very simple way to save even more money on your purchases. Consider that you have $100 worth of Deal Days merchandise in your shopping cart. Using this coupon to purchase a gift card for that amount will save you an additional 5% on whatever you were planning to buy. The gift card can be sent via email or text message, so as long as your desired items do not sell out immediately, this offer is worthwhile.
Choose free same-day pickup or delivery and spend at least $50 on food and beverages to receive a $10 gift card for free. There are a few restrictions on this offer, but it’s a simple way to save money if you were planning to restock your pantry anyway.
If you’re a member of Target Circle, it’s worth checking to see if you’re eligible for this offer, which gives you 10% off a purchase. The offer is valid until July 13. There is a list of excluded accounts, and not all accounts qualify. Your results may vary.
