We’ve been hearing reports of a “surprise doorbuster” sale from Target that’s set to happen this weekend, so we decided to do a little snooping. We found the image below on Target’s website, but take it with a grain of salt: the page it was on seemed like it had some glitches and the dates are wrong.

With so many high-profile data breaches plaguing popular Black Friday retailers like Target and Home Depot, it’s easy to see why shoppers might want to take their business elsewhere–lest they become victims of identity theft. But in light of the upcoming holiday shopping season, many stores have unveiled a new weapon against credit card data hacking: Apple Pay.
Released last week, Apple Pay is a new mobile payment service that allows you to make purchases, both in person and online, with just a tap on an iPhone 6. Shoppers who have the new phones and a compatible credit or debit card can upload their card information and leave their wallets at home when shopping at participating retailers.Read the rest of this entry >
September is in full-force, and whether you like it or not, Target wants you to start thinking about your holiday shopping list–pronto! The big box retailer released their annual list of top holiday toys this morning, and it seems this year’s big winners are toys that let children expand their minds and imaginations.
“One of this year’s top toy trends is to focus on how creative play helps children advance cognitive development, increase exploration and recognize their abilities to function in the world,” said Ken Seiter, vice president of Strategic Communications for the Toy Industry Association. “We are excited to see Target emphasizing the importance of creative play by offering this new and expanded assortment.”
From now until Saturday, November 16, you can get three games for the price of two at Target.com. Head over to their video games section and choose from over 300 titles for current and next-gen systems. The games specific to this BOGO sale will say “buy 2, get a third free” under the price. Just place 3 games you want into your cart, and the lowest priced game will be completely deducted from the total cost.
Hundreds of PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, and handheld games are up for grabs with this sale, some full price, some already on sale. And if you’re waiting for the Xbox One release, this promotion is perfect timing as Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts are eligible. However, if you’re waiting on your PS4 to be delivered to you this Friday, then Target may not be the store to supplement its arrival as the only PS4 game available in this sale is NBA 2K14. But don’t fret! Amazon has every Sony fan covered for the launch week.Read the rest of this entry >
We just got our hands on the 2013 Target Toy Book, the first one that is. Last year, Target put out a separate toy book online from the one that went into the Sunday circular. Last year’s print edition was 48 pages vs. 110 pages in the online version. So far this year the online version is much smaller, coming in at 66 pages.Read the rest of this entry >
Target and Kohls announced that they have begun their holiday hiring, and are giving out mixed messages.
A year ago today we told you that 36% of retailers were expecting to hire more workers for the 2012 holiday season than they had in 2011. Last year Macy’s hired 80,000 seasonal workers, a 2.5% increase over the year before. They have not said anything yet about their plans for 2013.Read the rest of this entry >
Why should Americans have all the fun (not to mention enjoy ridiculous deals and savings) on Black Friday while our friends in the Great White North toil in the cold and miss out?
Well, it seems American retail giant Target, amongst others, is looking to answer that very question.Read the rest of this entry >
The Bonus Black Friday weekend at Target that we told you about two weeks ago starts this Saturday and Sunday with an online preview available now.
This upcoming weekend, July 12th & 13th you can do a trial run of November 29th. Be warned, however, that when the real Black Friday rolls around you will be wearing much bulkier clothing and will most likely be more sluggish and still in a food coma.Read the rest of this entry >
