Best Target Black Friday 2019 deals: phones, smartwatches, other smart things
The shopping craze of Black Friday is about to begin, and we all know the major store chains will have some mouth-watering deals for us. Target — of course — is among them, and here, we will be tracking the noteworthy mobile bargains that pop up at the store.

The company 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 preview (ends this Saturday)


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

$200 gift card


The iPhone 11 is a hot, hot new device, so getting one at a rightout discount will be hard. But Target does offer you the next best thing — a gift card. When you go for an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max, you will also get a $200 bonus that you can come back and spend at Target for whatever else you want.

The catch? The phone purchase needs to include a carrier activation with the in-store vendors. So, hopefully, your contract is up for renewal?

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.

Headphones for cheap

Huge discounts


You can grab a Beats Solo3 wireless on-ear headset at a $170 discount — it now costs $129.99, instead of its regular price of $299.99.

If on-ear is not your thing, there’s the Sony over-ear WHCH700N/B noise-cancelling headphones at a massive $110 off — now priced at $89.99, instead of $199.99.

The smartwatch bonanza



If you’ve been thinking about trying out the more classic-looking smartwatches, made by Garmin or Fossil, now’s a good time. You can get some pretty hefty, $100 - $150 discounts depending on model, right now (and probably on Black Friday itself). You can check the list out below:

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


Just like on the Preview sale, you will be able to get the $200 gift card deal on Black Friday as well. When you go for an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max, you will also 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

at $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 smart speaker and $79 for the display-equipped smart home hub.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 42 mm

$80 off


Among other big and small smartwatch deals, we can spot Samsung’s Galaxy Watch. Interestingly enough, only the small, 42 mm variant is on the brochure. Still, it’s listed at $80 off, which means that it will set you back $249.99 on Black Friday.

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.

That’s it for now. More to come!
