Target has released a preview of its Black Friday 2019 deals, and is promising a whole heap of more discounts ahead of the busiest shopping period of the year.

The Bullseye is launching what it is calling HoliDeals, which will see discounts on Target goods starting as early as this Friday and Saturday – when it holds its Black Friday Preview Sale – and continue as late as Dec. 15.

The Black Friday Preview Sale has been doubled to two days for this year, with four times as many items on offer compared to last year.

It will give shoppers the chance to buy some of its Doorbuster deals three weeks before Black Friday itself, including a Nikon D3500 18-55mm DSLR camera for $399.99 (MRSP $849.99).

It's also promising "lowest prices of the season" on cellphones, including a $200 Target gift card when you buy an iPhone 11 or X, as well as a guaranteed low price on Beats Solo3 headphones for $129.99 (MRSP $299.99).

And if you're looking to stretch your money further this Christmas, you can get a 5 percent discount on Target gift cards this Friday and Saturday.

That's just for starters, with Target following up the preview sale with weekend deals starting Nov. 16 and ending Dec. 15.

As for Black Friday itself, you can preview Target's ad here, featuring Doorbusters discounts on a huge range of electronics, toys, kitchenware, health and beauty, and clothing, which will be on sale from Nov. 28-30.
