Target kicked off things with a “preview sale”, only live for a couple of days, between the 8th and 9th of November. That’s just to give us a taste of what’s to come. Things are about to really kick off on the 16th with Target’s annual HoliDeals event — new deals for every weekend leading up to the big Black Friday sale. Said deals will be announced each Tuesday, so keep an eye out!

Target Black Friday deals

In case nothing in the Preview weekend catches your fancy, here are the best mobile deals that will be live on Black Friday. Stay tuned as more information becomes available and this list evolves:

iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro (Verizon | AT&T)

$200 gift card

While Apple's jewels are a bit too hot to get an outright discount, you can nab yourself a gift card with your purchase. When you go for an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max, you will get a $200 bonus that you can come back and spend at Target for whatever else you want.

The phone purchase needs to include a carrier activation with the in-store vendors.

Samsung Galaxy S10, Note 10 (Verizon | AT&T)

$400 gift card

Samsung’s top-tier phones come with a similar deal. Buying the compact Galaxy S10e will only get you a $200 gift card, but if you go for one of its bigger bros — the S10, S10+, Note 10, or Note 10+, you will get a pretty meaty $400 gift card.

The catch still applies — you need to activate your purchased device on AT&T or Verizon, in store, if you are to get the card.

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL

$300 gift card

Another hot pair of phones, Google’s Pixels have barely hit store shelves, so we can’t really hope for an up-front discount. Still, a $300 gift card is quite generous, essentially bringing down the Pixel’s price from $800 - $900 to $500 - $600.

If you want even more savings, you can go for last year’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which will net you a $550 gift card.

Of course, any of these phones needs to be activated with an AT&T or Verizon tech in the Target store in order for you to get your gift card.

Google-ify your home

$50 off

You will be able to get a Google Home and a Google Nest Hub, each at $50 off. This translates to $49 for the Google Home speaker and $79 for the display-equipped Nest hub. And the small Google Home Mini for only $19! The big boy Google Home Max is still rather expensive, at $199, but that's $100 off from its regular price!

Apple Watch Series 4

$70 - $100 off

You can't get a discounted Series 5, unfortunately, but Apple's last gen Watch is still pretty good and is down by $70 for the GPS only models and a full $100 for the GPS + cellular models. In other words, they start at $329. If you want to go cheaper, you can buy a Series 3 from Target, but the Black Friday discount for that generation is pretty weak — only $30.

Samsung Galaxy Watch

$80 off

Among other big and small smartwatch deals, we can spot Samsung’s Galaxy Watch. Both the 42 mm and 46 mm versions are listed at $80 off, which means that they will set you back $249.99 and $269.99 respectively on Black Friday. The sleek-looking Galaxy Watch Active 2 is discounted by $50, selling for $229.99 - $249.99 depending on size.

Sammy’s watch is notable for its convincing “classic watch” appearance as well as a rotating mechanical bezel for easier menu and widget scrolling. Its battery also happens to last for about 3 days, which is ages in the world of smartwatches.
