Target announces Tuesday mega sale, squaring up for a Prime Day showdown

Read More

As expected, Target has now announced that it will be going toe-to-toe with Amazon on Tuesday, July 17th for Prime Day. Also to no surprise, Target is touting its ‘epic’ sale as being available for everyone, further pushing Amazon’s Prime membership requirement into the light. This time around the big red retailer is promising discounts on a wide range of home goods, electronics toys and more.

Target will also be offering a special bonus for REDcard members and those that spend over $100 on Tuesday. More details below.

Unlike Prime Day, which is set to kick-off on Monday at 3PM EST, Target will be offering deals on Tuesday only starting at 1AM. REDcard members will be able to save the usual extra 5% off and cash in on free two-day shipping. If you’re not yet a member, it’s free to join and might be worth it just for Target’s event, especially if you’re not in on Amazon Prime.

Those that spend $100 during Target’s event on Tuesday will receive a free six-month membership for same-day delivery from Shipt. This offer won’t be available in all areas of the country, but is a nice perk if you’re in a metro area.

Now judging by Target’s press release, they will be putting a hefty focus on toys and home goods this Tuesday. But you can’t expect them to sit out of the tech game completely. We do know that Target will be offering up to 30% off Google products, which I’m sure will include Google Home and perhaps some select Nest gear.

We’re also expecting Best Buy to show up with its Black Friday in July event within the next two weeks, which is probably going to be your best bet when it comes to Apple deals. That said, Target offers Apple Watch, iPad and Apple TV, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see some kind of price drop there. When combined with REDcard, you may be able to sweeten those deals even further.

As always, we’ll be covering all of the best deals from Prime Day, and other retailers, next week. Be sure to give us a follow on Twitter to be certain that you’re getting the deals as they come in.
