The holiday shopping season officially begins this week as both Target and Amazon try to reach early shoppers worried about rising prices with fall savings. With both retailers offering tempting discounts on a variety of products, as well as additional perks, many are likely to get their massive Christmas shopping lists started.
Here’s everything you can expect from both events:
Target deal days:
Target is kicking off its busy shopping season again with an October “Deal Days” event, which will take place from October 6th to 10th. 8th.
According to CNBC, the event is likely to feature heavy discounts on seasonal items, as well as Target-exclusive brands like Good & Gather grocery products, Brightroom storage and Room Essentials homeware. The company hasn’t specifically stated which items it will be offering as part of the sale, but said in a press release detailing its overall plans for the holiday season that discounts on toys, clothing, home decor, everyday items and stock items are to be expected.
The biggest attraction of the event is that it also coincides with the first day of the company’s holiday price match programs. If consumers buy something during Deal Days and it gets cheaper at Target between those days and Christmas Eve, the retailer will match the cheaper price.
Amazon Prime Day:
This event, reserved for Prime members only, will of course offer discounts on Amazon devices such as Kindles, Echos and Fire TVs and other private label items, but well-known brands that make great gift ideas are also likely to be offered from 10th to 12th October be on the list of discounts.
Some early offerings are already available, including an Igloo Portable Ice Cream Maker for $81.99, an Echo Dot Kids of the 4 Men’s 4-Pack Sport Headbands for $16.99, and a Deep Tissue Back Percussion Massage Gun for $29.73 $.
More deals will unfold ahead of the big event.
