The accent could be certain Amazon Prime Day this week — the two-day sales event ends June 22-but other stores have been promoting their own offer events in an effort to compete. Walmart has his own sale which ends on June 23, and Target Sale Days Sale started on June 20 and ends on June 22. We focus on the latter here. These are our favorite Target offers.
Note: We regularly update the items and
cross out items that sell or price increase at time of posting, and mark discounts based on recent product prices or average price, not MSRP. Be sure to check out the discounts for yourself. Our choices come from research and our vast experience in product review. You will need a Amazon prime subscription to get most of these offers.
Update: We’ve checked all the links and prices, added the Sony WH-1000XM4, a Logitech webcam, and the JLab Go Air.
Offers for home and kitchen
A KitchenAid stand mixer is a great buy if you really enjoy cooking and baking. They are made to last and look stylish in a kitchen, especially in red or blue colors which give it a vintage vibe.
Once you start having your floors cleaned by a robot, you will experience true luxury. We have a bunch of recommendations but they usually cost a lot more than this one. We haven’t looked at this model, but looked at similar models. The last few Ecovacs we tried had some navigation issues, but if you don’t have some weird ledges in your house you should be fine. It’s also rare to find a reliable robot vacuum for less than $ 200.
The popular Instant Pot is a Prime Day staple. He takes a bunch of devices and puts them in one. There are a few different sizes and versions, but this 6 quart is suitable for about six people. If you have a large family, the The 8 quart jar is also on sale for $ 90 ($ 50 off).
Dyson does large vacuum cleaners, and the V8 is its “budget” model. It converts into a handheld vacuum and has a runtime of around 40 minutes, so be sure to charge it between cleaning sessions.
If you really love coffee and drink several cups a day, you should invest in a nicer machine – even a cheap Mr. Coffee is good. But Keurigs have their place because they are fast and convenient. This one is small, so you can install it in apartment kitchens or even at your office. Designer Jonathan Adler came up with the look, which is pretty cool.
If you have more room to store it and enjoy iced coffee occasionally, this K-Elite model is a solid alternative. It also has a hot water button in case you want to make tea or oatmeal.
Air fryers are another fan favorite and a few are on sale at Target this year. We haven’t tried this particular model, but Oster has a pretty good reputation for kitchen gadgets. The company’s nine-function countertop air fryer is also reduced to $ 100 ($ 60 off). Alternatively, the PowerXL air fryer costs $ 60 ($ 40 off) also seems like a good deal. We haven’t tested it.
You might be heading back to an office or planning some camping or road trips. Anyway, have a thermos to keep meals hot (or cold!) This one is also dishwasher safe.
Have been big fans of AirPods Pro. They sound great and fit more comfortably in your ears than the first Airpods. We see these discounts a lot, but they’ve been around $ 197 in the last few months, so that’s a small drop from their normal discounted price.
Sony’s WH-1000XMM4 are our favorite wireless headphones for good reason: They have 30 hours of battery life with noise canceling turned on, great sound, and they’re some of the most comfortable headphones you can buy. This fourth generation model improves upon the predecessors with new beamforming microphones, giving you great sound during Zoom calls.
These inexpensive little wireless headphones won’t sound as good as AirPods, but they do have the same battery life and a more ergonomic fit. WIRED audio reviewer Parker Hall likes to take them out when gardening, long hikes, or other outdoor pursuits because you don’t have to worry too much about losing a bud.
Roku is our favorite streaming platform, and the Streaming Stick Plus is our choice for most people. This offer pops up frequently, and we’re only including it because we love the device.
It’s our favorite fitness watch right now and it’s the lowest price we’ve seen recently. Fitbit’s app is easy to use and its products remain affordable, yet perform well. You can get the same price on Amazon.
Webcams were rare in 2020, but they are rebounding and prices are normalizing. This is a good price from a reliable brand. You get 1080p video quality, plus a privacy shutter to hide the camera when not in use.
Hair and health offers
We all need a little care– the last year and a half has proven it. For more of our favorite beauty and grooming gadgets, check out our favorite straighteners and favorite hair dryer. We also have guides on Best Theragun and Massage Guns and Best electric toothbrushes.
This massage gun is as expensive as the Theraguns it rivals, but it still works well enough to relieve tense muscle pain. It comes with five different attachments to target different areas and it connects to an app via Bluetooth to guide you through the recovery options. There are more affordable options, but it’s the best price we’ve tracked for the Hypervolt.
The Quip is a powerful and affordable electric toothbrush. The app gives you information about brushing, such as duration, intensity and coverage. It doesn’t show real-time tracking if it’s something you really want. The plastic version is fine, but the most elegant the metal brush costs $ 50 ($ 10 off) right now.
Our pets are part of the family and they deserve toys too. Luckily, Target has some really cute products just for them on sale this weekend. Be sure to read our guides on cat props and dog props, and our advice for recently adopted animals.
WIRED tested a handful of dog DNA tests and found Embark to offer a ton of useful information – he even found relatives of some of the staff! But it’s expensive, even at a reduced price.
Target’s cat scratching houses are almost too cute to handle. This one is perfect for surfing cats who just love to chill out, but there’s something for every vacation, including Pride and Halloween. You can’t go wrong here.
Of all the pet supplies at Target, I’m the most drawn to those made by Boots & Barkley. They look good and the products I tried lasted a while. This plush bed will suit cats and small dogs.
We love Catit products, and this fountain can be used for cats or dogs who might like it. There are three water flow settings, including one without the flower, which may be more appealing to dogs. This offer also includes a placemat to catch spilled water and a stainless steel food dish.
We haven’t tried this particular brand, but it’s recommended and we think this design might appeal to dogs than the Catit Flower Fountain above. In addition, it has a location for backup batteries to start in the event of a power failure.
Board games offers
I prefer a good old school board game or a trivia session when I’m bored, but they can get really expensive if you want to buy a few. Fortunately, some of them are currently on sale. See our guide to family board games for more. Target also offers discounts on video games.
Catan is popular among strategy game fans, but it can fetch almost $ 60. We’ve seen it around $ 44 recently, so that extra drop is appreciated.
I can’t say I’m a fan of this seemingly endless game, but it’s a classic for a reason. There have been minor improvements over the years, but it has stuck to the original pretty much.
This game might be for kids, but you can’t deny that it is fun to play with a group of adults every now and then, especially if you are willing to ask for more. alternative questions. Or, as one Redditor suggested, replace cartoons with photos of your friends and, respectfully of course, roast each other. This only ships if your cart is $ 35 or more.
