Amazon Prime Day will be happening July 12-13 this year, with sales from both big brands and small businesses across every category. While you can expect to see deals on more than 2 million products, if you don’t have an Amazon Prime account or simply don’t see what you need on sale, some competing retailers will also be having sales on the same day.
One company offering deals is Target, with its Target Deal Days returning for a fourth year. Running July 11-13 (one day before Prime Day), Target says this year’s sale is bigger than ever and includes deals across every category, including food and beverage, electronics, beauty, home, apparel and toys. The sale also includes deals on Target-exclusive owned brands like Good & Gather, Heyday, Threshold and A New Day, as well as top national brands like Apple and Disney.
One big difference between Target Deal Days and Prime Day is that you do not need a membership to shop Target’s sales. Simply head to their website or download the app and you can begin shopping. You can also use Target’s free contactless order pickup and drive up services, or use Shipt and have your items delivered to your home in just a few hours.
Take a look at a few of the deals you’ll find at Target now through July 13.
