Target shoppers, your time has come — Target Circle Week is arguably the best time of the year for finding deals. That’s because members of the free Target Circle rewards program get flooded with discounts for an entire week — not-so-coincidentally surrounding Amazon Prime Day sales in July and October.

During this event, you’ll find gobs of Target Circle offers — 20-50% off thousands of different products such as home goods, apparel, and toys. And you can make the deals even better with your 5% Circle Card discount. We’ll tell you when this is happening, what you can expect from the next sale, and how to make the most of it.

Note: Although Target had a Target Circle Week in April 2024, the sale was part of Target’s launch of their new rewards program. Since Target has never held a Circle Week in April before, we’re counting it as a one-off, so we didn’t include it below.

Target Circle Week is a twice-a-year, one-week sale for members of Target’s free loyalty program.

This is Target’s answer to Amazon Prime Day. For a week in July (and a week in October), Target Circle members get special access to discounts on all of Target’s store brands, plus some of their most popular national brands (like Lenovo, Dyson and Keurig). 

This is the time of year when you can find the most Target Circle offers — online, in-store, or via the app. You just have to be a member of the free program. (We’ve got lots of reasons why you should sign up for Target Circle if you haven’t already). 

Also: During the October sale, Target Circle members also get access to rotating daily deals. 

KCL predicts the next Target Circle Week will begin July 7, 2024.

Target-Circle-Week-1

Target hasn’t officially announced the next date for their July Circle Week event, but we strongly believe that the weeklong event wasn’t just a one-time thing. And since Target has a history of having sales that coincide with Amazon Prime Day, we here at KCL predict that the second-annual July Target Circle Week will take place July 7-13, 2024.

This is based on our prediction for Amazon Prime Day 2024, July 9-10, 2024. And if Circle Week once again starts the Sunday before Prime Day, that’s how you get to July 7. Here are the past dates of the Circle Week sales’ start dates:

Here are the recent start dates for the July Target Circle Week (a 2-day sale previously called Target Days), which inform our prediction:

  • Sunday, April 7, 2024 (this was coincided with Target’s new Rewards program, so it’s possibly a one-off sale)

  • Sunday, July 9, 2023

  • Monday, July 11, 2022

  • Sunday, June 20, 2021

  • (No event in 2020 due to Covid)

  • Monday, July 15, 2019

1. The October Target Circle Week ran from Oct. 1 – 7, 2023.

The last Target Circle Week in October 2023 officially started on Sunday, Oct. 1, and ran through Saturday, Oct. 7, 2023.

This was the second Circle Week event this year, following the earlier summer sale from July 9 – 15, 2023. In July, Circle Week overlapped with the competing Amazon Prime Day sale. But this time, Circle Week happened the week before Amazon’s Big Prime Deal Days (Oct. 10 – 11, 2023).

Unlike other major Target sales in the past, Circle Week is exclusive to Target Circlemembers (aka members of Target’s free rewards program). During the October 2023 event, members could save up to 50% on artificial Christmas trees, plus up to 40% on tons of other items.

2. Shop the Target Circle Week sale in stores, online, and in the app.

You can shop for Circle Week savings in stores, on Target.com, or in the Target app.

Before you shop, make sure all the Target Circle offers you want are saved to your Target account online or in the app. Your saved Circle Offers automatically apply to online purchases. In-store, scan the Circle barcode (in the Wallet part of your Target app) when you checkout.

3. The best Target Circle Week deals in October were on artificial Christmas trees, kitchen items, and floor care.

target-artificial-christmas-trees-2019-02

There was A LOT going on for Circle Week in October 2023, but a few categories had deeper discounts than others.

Artificial Christmas Trees had the biggest discount for Circle Week — a whopping 50% off regular prices. But behind that, Kitchen items, floor care, and vacuums were 40% off.

Artificial Christmas Trees

Target had about 70 different artificial Christmas trees eligible for the 50% discount during the October Circle Week. Prices started as low as $10 (or $9.50 with your RedCard) for a 3-foot unlit tree.

See all the Christmas tree deals happening now.

Kitchen Items

Target promoted 40% off select kitchen items for Circle Week — but some discounts were even bigger. We found a Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven for a whopping 60% off its regular price. With the Circle Offer, you’d pay $99.99 versus the $229.99 regular price!

Floor Care & Vacuums

The Shark Professional Steam Pocket mop didn’t quite reach its low Black Friday price for Target Circle Week in October, but it still had a hefty discount right now. However, there may be an opportunity to save about $10 more during Target Black Friday.

See all vacuum deals happening now.

4. Target had a rare toy coupon for the October Circle Week: spend $50, save $10 — or spend $100, save $25.

We didn’t think we’d see a killer toy deal before the 25% off Target Toy Coupon drops. But Target surprised us all with a rare Circle Week coupon. If you spent at least $50 on toys, you’d get $10 off. If you spent at least $100 on toys, you’d get $25 off.

This was basically a chance to save 20% on some of the hottest toys ahead of the holidays.

5. Aim to save 30% on women’s clothing, sweats, and pajamas for the family.

target-black-friday-matching-family-christmas-pajamas-heather-joanie-2022-16-kcl

A good chunk of Target Circle Week deals were on clothing in October 2023, offering 30% off multiple categories. The biggest one was women’s fashion. Women’s sweaters, pants, shoes, and accessories were all 30% off.

Target also dropped 30% off on family pajamas, sweatshirts, and sweatpants for the week-long sale.

6. Target offered a full year of Target Same-Day Delivery for 50% off in October 2023.

shipt-target-2022

During the October Circle Week, you could get a full year of same-day delivery for half the price.

Target Same-Day Delivery is powered by Shipt, a membership-based delivery service. Without a membership, you’ll pay $9.99 for each same-day delivery order from Target. Or, you could join Shipt and pay $99 a year for unlimited same-day deliveries.

But through Oct. 7, you could sign up for an annual Shipt membership and pay $49.50 instead of $99. That got you a whole year of free same-day delivery from Target.

7. Look for a special Circle Offer with savings on TripAdvisor bookings.

Target didn’t bring back their free TripAdvisor Plus offer in October 2023, but there was another TripAdvisor discount on the table worth grabbing.

One of the limited-time Circle Week deals was 20% off TripAdvisor Things to Do — like sightseeing tours, excursions, park admissions, and passes to top attractions. For example, general admission to Universal Studios Orlando starts at $200 per ticket on TripAdvisor. But with 20% off, you’d save $40 per ticket.

8. Look for a free $5 Target gift card with a $40 Ulta at Target purchase.

ulta-target-circle-rewards-2022-6-reuploaded-feature

You had the chance to save on Ulta Beauty at Target for the October Circle Week 2023. If you spent $40 or more on eligible Ulta at Target purchases, you’d score a free $5 Target gift card.

TIP: Link your Target Circle account and your Ulta Beauty account to double up on earnings. You’ll earn 1% back through Target Circle andUltamate Rewards points on your purchase!

9. Shop Target’s Deal of the Day for up to 70% off through Dec. 24.

The Target Deal of the Day program is officially back for the 2023 holiday season, and the first daily deal dropped with the start of Circle Week!

From Oct. 1 through Dec. 24, Target will drop a new daily deal every morning. These items are usually trending or bestselling items with deep discounts ranging anywhere from 30% to 70% off.

In 2023, Target will drop daily deals on items from top brands, like Apple, Nespresso, Dyson, and Nintendo.

10. On top of deals for up to 50% off, Target Circle members get a bonus reward to use on their purchases.

target-circle-week-2023-various-deals

For example, my Target app gave me a $15 reward on qualifying purchases of $120 or more, but other KCL readers had a $15 reward on $115 purchases or a $10 reward on $80 purchases.

To find your reward, tap on Target Circle offers in the Target app and scroll past the offers to see your Target Circle Bonus. And don’t forget to tap “Activate Bonus” to take advantage of your reward!

11. Ask for a price match within 14 days of your Target Circle Week purchase if you find a better deal.

Target won’t price match Amazon Lightning Deals or Amazon Fresh Exclusive offers, but they do price match Amazon Prime Day deals if they aren’t just for Prime members. That means if you buy something at Target during Circle Week, and then find a lower price on Amazon during Prime Big Deal Days the next week, you can ask Target to match the lower Amazon price.

Target will generally price match the following online competitors:

  • Amazon.com

  • Apple.com

  • BedBathandBeyond.com

  • Bestbuy.com

  • BarnesandNoble.com

  • Buybuybaby.com

  • Chewy.com

  • Costco.com

  • CVS.com

  • DicksSportingGoods.com

  • GameStop.com

  • HomeDepot.com

  • JCPenney.com

  • Kmart.com

  • Kohls.com

  • Lowes.com

  • Macys.com

  • Newegg.com

  • OfficeDepot.com

  • Petco.com

  • PetSmart.com

  • SamsClub.com

  • Sears.com

  • Sephora.com

  • Staples.com

  • Ulta.com

  • Walgreens.com

  • Walmart.com

  • Wayfair.com

12. Pay with your Target Circle Card for an extra 5% off all the limited-time deals.

target-circle-card-kcl-8

Choose from a Target Circle Card credit or debit card, but I definitely recommend the debit card version. It connects to your checking account and works like a regular debit card, but it only works at Target. Plus, you’ll get free 2-day shipping on all your orders with a Circle Card.

13. Spend at least $35 on Target.com for free two-day shipping (or pay with your RedCard).

target-redcard-free-shipping-boxes-packages

14. Get your Circle Week deals the same day with free Target Pickup and Drive Up.

target-drive-up-order-pickup-01

You can also grab your Circle Week haul on the same day with free Target pickup options. If you place an order online or in the app, you can use Target Drive Up (aka curbside), or pick up your items in-store.

Target doesn’t have a minimum order requirement for pickup orders, so if you’re not hitting that $35 free shipping threshold on Target.com, store pickup is a great (and speedy) way to save!
