Target reveals its 2018 Black Friday ad

Target is expecting a bumper holiday season.
Publish date:

November is here and retailers have started the countdown to the biggest shopping weekend of the year.

One of the first companies to give customers a sneak peak of its Black Friday offers is Target, whose ad went live on Thursday.

It's promising thousands of offers and doorbusters when shopping gets underway starting at 5 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, when stores will open until 1 a.m. Black Friday morning, before re-opening again at 7 a.m.

For the first time, Target shoppers will be able to skip the lines at the tills as each staff member will have mobile scanning and payment tech, meaning customers can pay for their stuff by stopping a worker in the middle of the store.

On Black Friday itself, Target is offering a deal where shoppers who spend more than $50 will get a 20 percent off coupon for future trips to use between Nov. 27 and Dec. 8.

TVs are usually one of the big sellers as retailers look to shift stock ahead of new models arriving.

And Target is no different, its front page ad includes a TCL 55-inch Ultra-HD Roku Smart TV for $349.99.

It's offering a Samsung 50-inch 4K Ultra-HD TV for $329.99, and is taking $300 off a Samsung 65-inch curved UHD TV, bringing the price down to $799.99.

Here are some of the other deals that catch the eye.

  • A Roku Ultra streaming box for $49.99 ($50 off)
  • A $150 gift card when you sign up for an iPhone 8, 8 Plus or XR through Verizon, Sprint and AT&T, and a $250 gift card when you activate an iPhone XS or XS Max.
