There is no place as a target. While online shopping doesn’t instill the same frenzy as getting lost in Bullseye’s Playground, the Target Deal Days sale still offers an exciting excuse to browse the virtual aisles. (As if any of us ever needed another excuse to do a quick target run.)
The sale runs until July 13, and while it may be a direct competitor to Amazon Prime Day, the vast majority of these deals don’t require a membership to purchase. Some of the offers are only available to Target Circle members, but joining the program is free — and membership is worth it if you shop at Target, even semi-regularly.
The WIRED Gear team tests products throughout the year and has manually sorted through hundreds of thousands of offers to make these choices.
Products crossed out are out of stock or is no longer updated. Our Amazon Prime Day front page has the latest stories, and our Prime Day shopping tips will help you avoid bad deals. You can also get a One-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off) here.

Deals on games and entertainment
It was one of our favorite video games of 2021, and while it’s a bit older now, it still holds up. While 90s kids will especially like it, the title is family-friendly and suitable for everyone, even those of us unlucky enough to grow up without. Aaahh!!! real monsters. This price is much lower than other discounts we have tracked.
dark haven is one of the most popular and expensive table games. Jaws of the Lion can be played as a standalone game or as an expansion of the original. It is suitable for two or more players aged 14 and over.
A plethora of Lego sets are on sale, ranging from classic $10 brick kits to Minecraft– thematic models. The Duplo and Friends inclusive ranges are also featured in this sale. The quality of the offer depends on the set you are considering, but the discounts are generally good, especially for parents looking to entertain their children this summer.
Target circle members only
This binder is a good option for future kindergartners, and the clip coupon brings it down to just $3 for Target Circle members. Choose free in-store pickup, where available, to avoid shipping charges. Be sure to check out these school supply deals for additional student savings.
This sale features nearly 50,000 titles to choose from, including kids’ classics and adult thrillers. The discount will be automatically reflected at checkout.
Home & Away Deals
It’s not a rare sale on our budget carpet cleaner pick, so there’s no need to rush to add it to your cart. But if you’re already in the market, we think you’ll like this one for small stains (if you have a big old house that needs a deep clean, maybe go for something bigger) . It’s lightweight and easy to maneuver, and the solution-dispensing trigger is right on the handle. There are also separate tanks for clean and dirty water which can be removed for rinsing. This price is matched at Amazon.
The larger Hoover SmartWash we love is also discounted by Target, though it’s cheaper at Amazon right now.
There are a ton of clothes and shoes on sale. The selection includes options for men, women and children. It’s not just limited to shirts and pants either – you can get deals on shoes and swimwear too. Prices are listed on the product page.
While it’s not hard to find deals on stand mixers during the shopping holidays, this model comes in some lovely, unique colors. KitchenAid mixers are popular for good reason. They are great for baking as well as for cooking in general. While this discount is good, if you’re determined to get the lowest possible price (maybe $200-$250), it’s best to wait until Black Friday to buy them.
Nothing screams “college” like one of these bad boys. These types of pillows are never really comfortable, but they’re handy for homework, bedtime reading, and movie night. This one has a plush cover for extra softness.
These types of clothing storage racks have become popular online over the past couple of years. They are perfect for small apartments or bedrooms, especially if you have limited storage space. This rack has shelves on the side for storing shoes or storage bins, a feature hard to find in other similarly priced versions. Consider the Gen-Z cool points as an added bonus.
Health & Beauty Deals
There are plenty of cheaper massage guns you can buy (and we like a lot of them), but the Pro is the best of the Theragun line. Theraguns (made by Therabody) are kind of like the Kleenex of the percussion device world. It’s the brand’s quietest device and comes with five attachment heads for tenderizing different muscles.
The Mini is also discounted by $160 ($40 off), if you really want a Theragun but want to spend as little as possible. However, there are better options than the Mini. The triangular designs of other Theraguns make them much more ergonomic. The Theragun Prime, which we didn’t test, costs $250 ($50 off).
We think most people would be fine with the Theragun Elite, including athletes, but this Pro is the beast of the line and puts out 60 pounds of force, while the Elite uses 40 pounds. It also has a rotating arm, so it’s even easier to get accessories in the right place. If you have the cash to spend, you’ll like it, but $500 is a high price on sale.
You can still take advantage of some of Therabody’s technologies without paying hundreds. This Wave Roller combines the traditional foam rolling with the vibrations of a massage. It’s not going to knot as effectively, but you can pair it with a cheaper massage gun if you need to.
Deals on everything else
Target circle members only
It’s an extremely easy way to make your purchases even cheaper. Let’s say you have $100 of merchandise from the Deal Days sale in your shopping cart. Purchase a gift card for that amount using this coupon and you’ll save an additional 5% on everything you intended to purchase. The card can be delivered via email or SMS, so until your coveted items sell out immediately, this deal is worth it.

This sale presents a somewhat random assortment. Discounted gift cards are only worth buying if you were planning on spending the money anyway. Options include Fandango, Vudu, and Domino’s, and there’s also a restaurant option that can be had at a few different national chains.
If you’re a Target Circle member, it’s worth checking to see if your account is eligible for this offer, which gets you 10% off a purchase. Offer expires July 13. There is a list of exclusions and not all accounts are eligible. Your mileage may vary.
