Target Black Friday deals in 2023 officially dropped on Nov. 19, 2023, with sale prices on smart TVs, laptops, video game consoles, vacuums, and so much more.

Even though the Target Black Friday Sale didn’t start until the week of Thanksgiving, Target ran early Black Friday deals throughout the whole month of November. They dropped three separate events with early deals, starting on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2023. Some of the best early deals were on the Dyson V8 vacuum, KitchenAid Mixers, Instant Pot Bundles, and artificial Christmas trees (for 50% off).

But as always, the main event brought in the hottest deals for up to 70% off. Not to mention all the free Target gift card offers available on select purchases — up to $75 per item! A full preview of all these deals went live on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2023.

Don’t forget — thanks to Target’s holiday price match policy, you’re guaranteed the lowest Black Friday prices all the way through Christmas Eve. So if you buy items early and they get lower price drops before Dec. 24, you can still get the best deal. Also, don’t forget to keep your eye on Target’s Deal of the Day for up to 70% off hot items for one day only.

Here’s everything you need to know about Target Black Friday deals, including when they drop and the best deals we saw in 2023.

You can expect Target to start early Black Friday deals before Halloween — seriously. In 2023, Target’s first set of early deals started on Sunday, Oct. 29. This was the first of three pre-Black Friday events they ran throughout November, leading right up to their official sale on Nov. 19.

Target had early deals running across almost every category — tech, toys, clothing, holiday decor, kitchen items, and more. But there were two early deals that stood out the most in 2023. The Dyson V8 Origin Vacuum dropped to its lowest price ever for Event 2, as low as $213.74 with Target’s sale price and $25 free gift card offer. Plus, all artificial Christmas trees were 50% off for Event 3, bringing the price of a 7.5-foot pre-lit tree down to just $50.


Official Target Black Friday deals start the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

You won’t have trouble finding hot deals at Target before Black Friday, but the best deals don’t start until the main event. In 2023, Target Black Friday deals started on Sunday, Nov. 19, and ended on Saturday, Nov. 25. This is a trend they stick to year after year. Target typically starts Black Friday deals the Sunday before Thanksgiving and runs them through the following Saturday.

You can expect a preview of Target’s main Black Friday ad to drop just 2 – 3 days before the sale starts.


Most Target Black Friday deals are valid all week, but some run for three days only.

All the deals in the first 57 pages of Target’s ad are valid the whole week, from Sunday, Nov. 19 through Saturday, Nov. 25. But in the very back of the ad, you’ll see the deals that run for three days only, from Thursday, Nov. 23 through Saturday, Nov. 25.

These were the three-day-only deals that started on Thanksgiving Day in 2023:

Ask for a price match if you find a better Target deal after your Black Friday purchase.

If you scoop one of Target’s Black Friday deals in November and it gets a lower price before the holiday season ends, ask for a Target price match to get the better deal.

Target has a special holiday price match guarantee that covers your purchases between Oct. 22 and Dec. 24. If you buy something during that timeframe and the Target price drops on or before Christmas Eve, you can ask Target to match the lower price.

Target will even price-match competitors (like Amazon and Walmart) for a 14-day period if they have a lower price than Target. Just be sure the item is an exact match and in stock at the competitor.


Look for items with Target gift card offers attached.
