16 best Target Black Friday deals: Oculus Quest 2, Google Pixel 6 and more – CNET

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Target’s Black Friday extravaganza lasts a whole week and the retailer has gone all-out this year. Prices are slashed on everything from 4K TVs to kitchen gadgets, phones and smartwatches, including one of the all-time lowest prices on the Apple Watch SE.  This sale expires on this Saturday, Nov. 27, but we have a sneaking suspicion (based on years of experience) that it’ll be extended. Target hasn’t confirmed its Cyber Monday deals, but they usually carry over the vast majority of the same Black Friday ones through the holiday weekend.

You can browse all of the hundreds of deals happening now at Target on its Black Friday homepage above, but with huge sales at other major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart, who’s got the time? Well, we do. We’ve plowered through page after page to bring you the absolute best deals Target is offering right now. Some of these items have limited availability, and will require you to pick it up in person, so it’s important to note that Target will be closed all of Thanksgiving Day. Without further ado, these are the best deals happening at Target.

This KitchenAid Professional Series stand mixer offers a lot of power and versatility in a compact package. It features 10 speed settings and a bowl-lift design that is perfect for larger batches and dense ingredients. It comes with a set of whisks, flat beaters and a dough hook, but there are over 10 additional attachments available to help you get even more out of this mixer without sacrificing more counter space.


Like other retailers, Target doesn’t offer a direct discount on the Oculus Quest 2, but you will get a $50 gift card that can be used toward a future purchase. The Quest 2 rarely gets discounted, and while you are still technically paying full price for the unit itself, the gift card is something you won’t want to miss out on.

This 2021 model of the Fire HD 10 Plus is Amazon’s most advanced tablet to date. It features 4GB of RAM (twice as much as the previous generation) and a stunning 1080p 10.1-inch display. And at 42% off, this is the absolute lowest price we’ve seen.

Air fryers have been all the rage lately, and for good reason. They can cook up hot, delicious meals much faster than a traditional oven or deep fryer, and with a fraction of the mess.
