The Best Target Black Friday Tech Deals

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of credit cards throughout the land preparing for a workout. We are days away from Black Friday, where neighbor battles neighbor to snatch up a discounted TV, game console, or other must-have holiday gift in the dead of night.

Black Friday is no longer a one-day event. Stores are already discounting items in anticipation of the big day, and many “Black Friday” deals kick off on Thanksgiving Day. Our own Sascha Segan would prefer you keep yourself at home, full of gravy, and spare retail workers from having to deal with your insatiable desire to score a deal on Thanksgiving Day.

But Target and others will have none of that. It will be open from 5 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving until 1 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23 before re-opening again at 7 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23. Black Friday deals go live online early in the morning of Thanksgiving on Target.com.

No matter how you plan to shop, there are plenty of deals for the taking. Check out some of the best tech-related discounts below.
