When it comes to big shopping events of the summer, Prime Day is one of the biggest. But it's hardly the only one. Target has its own sale called Target Deal Days, and you don't have to be a special member to shop it!

Check out our Target Deal Days 2022 preview to learn what to expect from the sale, plus get tips on how to save even more.

What You Need to Know About Target Deal Days 2022

When Does Target Deal Days Start?

Target Deal Days 2022 is set to start July 11 and go through July 13. That coincides with Amazon's Prime Day event, which is scheduled for July 12-13. Target's deals will be available on both their website and app, for those who prefer to shop one way or the other — or both!

What Kinds of Deals Will Target Have?

According to the bull's-eye retailer, shoppers can expect discounts "across every category... including food and beverage, electronics, beauty, home, apparel and toys."

Target Deal Days will take place from July 11-13 and include discounts from every category available.

Unsurprisingly, Target will heavily feature its own brands, including Good & Gather, heyday, Threshold, and A New Day. The retailer will also reportedly have deals on brands like Apple and Disney.

One of the biggest deals Target will offer is savings on Target GiftCards — shop online during the event and you'll save 5%. Keep an eye out for the following offers, as well:

  • Spend $50 on food and beverages and receive a $10 Target GiftCard with same-day services, including delivery and pickup
  • Up to $70 in savings on Apple products
  • Up to 50% off select top tech and headphones
  • 25% off beauty products
  • Up to 30% off home items
  • 50% off select apparel and accessories for the family
  • Up to 50% off hundreds of toys
  • Up to 40% off kitchen appliances
  • Up to 35% off floor care products

Like Amazon, Target is starting its celebration early with excellent savings, including the Deal of the Day; you can expect that offer to change every day leading up to the big event.

How Will Target's Excess Inventory Affect the Sale?

Target announced in June that it would be cutting prices in an effort to clear out excess inventory. It didn't indicate how long this move would last, but given how recent the news was, it's likely that Target Deal Days and the excess-inventory markdowns will overlap. This probably means that we'll see more seasonal items as part of the Deal Days events compared to other years, when the sale might've had more general items and fewer summer products.

Tips for Shopping Target Deal Days

Save Target Circle Offers

Whether you want to shop via the Target app or online, you can browse Target Circle offers and save any that you're interested in. (Target Circle is the retailer's loyalty program.) Then, when it's time to check out, scan the app in-store or sign in with the same account online; any eligible Target Circle offers you've saved will be automatically redeemed.

Pay With a RedCard

If you haven't already, apply for a Target RedCard. It's available as either a debit or credit card, and both versions give you the same major benefits. For instance, both allow you to save 5% on in-store and online purchases every day, offer free 2-day shipping, and provide a bigger return window.

Pay with your Target RedCard to save 5% on in-store and online purchases every day.

The only difference between the two RedCards is that a debit card will be linked to your existing checking account, and give you the ability to withdraw up to $40 in cash at checkout in-store.
