A simple walk through Target always turns into a shopping spree for us.

Target just has it all—the latest books we want to read? Check. Super-cute shoes? Check. A plethora of coffee mugs with trendy quotes? Check. Luckily for us Target-lovers, there’s no better time to scoop up a cart full of deals than the shopping holiday that is Black Friday. We’ve gathered all of the info you need to know to head into Black Friday with your head held high and your wallet at the ready. Buckle up, shoppers—it’s go time.

When do Target Black Friday deals start?

Because its sales are in such high demand, Target opens its doors early for Black Friday–eager shoppers who like to search for sales in the wild can pounce on deals before they’ve even eaten their Thanksgiving dessert. Target typically opens at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving, closes at 1 a.m., then reopens its doors at 7 a.m. on Friday morning.

Online shoppers can snag deals starting at 5 p.m. too, but these homebodies can continue shopping well into the night in their pajamas while they eat pumpkin pie. (We know that’s what we’ll be doing.) Luckily for online shoppers, Target is offering free two-day shipping on all orders placed between November 1st and December 22nd, so opting to stay in won’t cost you any extra.

Target is now offering early access to Red Card holders and Target Circle members on November 27th. Red Card holders will receive access to over 100 Black Friday deals all day on November 27th, giving them a full day’s leg up over other shoppers. But that’s not all—Red Card holders will also receive 5% off of items every day. Sign up for a red card here—these steals are most likely totally worth it.

Next best, Target Circle members will receive access to certain Black Friday deals at 6 p.m. CT. Joining Target Circle is free and offers ongoing benefits year round. Sign up for Target Circle here, and snag Black Friday deals before non-members.

What deals can we expect during Target’s Black Friday sales?

Target typically offers discounts on super desirable products, so we’re guessing this year will be no different. Past years have included discounts on popular brands like Universal Thread (Target’s women’s lifestyle brand that reminds us of Madewell), Wild Fable, and Hearth & Hand, Chip and Joanna Gaines' chic home decor line. The options for scoring deals at Target are endless, so we’ve picked some of our favorite items currently on sale that will likely be discounted further when the big day arrives.
