What to Expect From Target Cyber Monday Sales in 2017

Look for a 15% off sitewide discount, as well as generous deals on electronics and outerwear.
Target Cyber Monday

In the past few years, Target has become a big force on Cyber Monday. Last year, we saw more Editors' Choice deals from Target during its Cyber Monday sale than during its Black Friday sale. If you're looking to snag cyber savings from the store with the big red bullseye, here's everything you need to know.

When Will the Target Cyber Monday Sale Start?

Expect Cyber Monday deals to begin on the Sunday before Cyber Monday, which is November 26.

When Is the Best Time to Shop?

Sunday is most likely the best time to shop. The past two years have seen a 15% off sitewide discount (once via coupon, once automatically applied in-cart), and Target has already announced that this will happen again.

The past two years have seen a 15% off sitewide discount during Target's Cyber Monday sale.

General discounts like these are extremely unusual for Target and seem to be specially saved for Cyber Monday. You're best off hitting the store as soon as the extra discount goes live.

Does the Sale Continue Into Cyber Week?

Not really. Though some deal prices may remain live, you won't want to miss out on the extra discount, which is historically only offered on Sunday and Monday.

What Will Be on Sale?

While nearly everything in Target will be discounted (with the exception of a few categories, such as CVS pharmacy and Google items), you can count on a few product types to get particularly deep discounts.

For example, expect excellent deals on electronics. One of the hottest offers last year was an Amazon Fire 8GB 7" tablet for $28. That was $5 under Amazon's Black Friday price! We also saw good deals on the Nest Learning Thermostat, TVs, and more.

You'll find solid offers on holiday decor, too. Last year we saw sets of 100 string lights for as low as $4, with a stacking coupon that took $10 off $50 spent in the holiday store.

Toys and gaming is another category to watch. In 2016, Target offered multiple Editors' Choice deals on consoles and many excellent toy deals.

We also hope to see a repeat of last year's excellent sale on outerwear — 40% off coats for men, women, and kids (plus that extra 15% off). That's a deep discount for November.

Special Tips for Shopping the Target Cyber Monday Sale

Keep an eye out for gift cards! Target has a history of offering gift cards to sweeten deals, and that extra incentive can easily push an offer from "maybe" to "must buy."

Target REDcard holders may get early access to special events and promotions this year.

Also, while Target REDcard holders always save an extra 5% at Target, the REDcard page now claims that a "new benefit" for cardholders is early access to special events and promotions. This could mean early access to Cyber Monday sales as well, although we'll have to see.
