Target is keeping its eye on the summer sale bullseye with its own seven-day shopping event to rival Amazon Prime Big Deal Days. The Minneapolis-based mass retailer’s Circle Week runs from Oct. 1-7, five days longer than Amazon’s 48-hour event.
Available to members of Target’s free-to-join Circle loyalty program, the weeklong savings event promises up to 40 percent off storewide and is among the Prime Day alternative sales hoping to attract discount-seeking shoppers away from Amazon this fall. The fall sale includes 50 percent off Shipt memberships (Target’s on-demand delivery service) and will kick off Target’s Deal of the Day, which runs through Dec. 24.
Ahead, keep reading for everything you need to know about Target’s pre-holiday savings, including the best deals and how to save the most during the seven-day blowout.
When Is Target Circle Week 2023?
Target Circle Week starts Sunday, Oct. 1, and ends Saturday, Oct. 7, and takes place in stores, online at Target.com and on the retailer’s app.
How to Shop Target Circle Week 2023
Unlike Amazon Prime Big Deal Days, you don’t need to buy a membership to shop the Target Circle Week sale — the retailer’s Circle program is free to join and includes access to all of the deals. That means it’s also not required to have a Target RedCard debit or credit card in order to shop the weeklong event, although cardholders do get the extra 5 percent discount.
The Best Deals to Shop at Target Circle Week 2023
Ahead of the holiday shopping season, Circle members save $10 or $25 when they spend $50 or $100 on toys. Shoppers also get a $15 gift card on purchases of $50 or more on household essentials and a $5 gift card on beauty and health purchases of $25 and up or on Ulta Beauty purchases of $40 and up.
Target Circle members also qualify for bonus earnings during the seven-day shopping event. The retailer’s convenient same-day services allow you to stock up on web-only deals at home for in-store or Drive Up pickup, so you can save time when you fill your IRL cart on promos available in stores only. Another option is to get your order delivered via a Shipt membership (reg. $99 per year), which will be half off for new members during Target Circle Week.
