Q. Yesterday you wrote about the TV deals that will be at Costco on Black Friday. What about Target. I live just up the street from one and would love to pick up an early deal. — Jennifer, Pittsburgh.
Jennifer, I am happy to report that Target will indeed offer some interesting discounts on televisions on the big holiday shopping weekend.
For starters, Target’s Black Friday sale will begin on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m. (November 22) and run until 1 a.m. Then the sale will begin again on Black Friday itself at 7 a.m. when doors re-open.
As for TV deals, Target will sell an Element-branded 55-inch 4K TV for $199, which is a discount of $180. I can’t vouch for the reliability and performance of the Element brand, but that’s an incredible price for a 55-inch 4K set. (Note: Target is selling the Element TV at the discount price online today only. The bargain price will return on Thanksgiving.)
The retailer will also sell the TCL 55-inch 4K TV with Roku inside for $349, which is $100 off the regular price.
Target also plans to offer a Samsung 65-inch, curved-screen 4K TV (model: NU7300) for $799, which is $100 off as well. I’m not a big fan of curved-screen sets, but that’s a great price for a 65-inch 4K TV of any kind.
Finally, if you’re looking for a backroom set for the kids, Target will sell a Polaroid-brand 32-inch HDTV for $79. That’s a $50 discount.
