It’s Target Deal Days! What…is that? Sort of like how Easter “happened” to develop around the same time as pagan holidays celebrating the coming of spring, Target Deal Days coincides with Amazon Prime Day—but better still, it starts one day earlier. And Target isn’t the only retailer offering competitor deals this week. Starting today, you’ll find steep discounts on items like our favorite meat thermometer from Thermoworks, hotel-esque sheets from Brooklinen, Apple products from Best Buy, and patio furniture from Walmart.
Target Deal Days 2022 is a three-day, online-only event running today until Wednesday, July 13, with sales across every category including electronics, kitchen appliances, home items, and more. Unlike Amazon Prime Day, which requires shoppers to be Prime members, you don’t have to be a Target Circle member to reap the benefits of Target Deal Days. All deals are available to everyone. And like Amazon Prime, Target offers same-day delivery on select items via Shipt. So whether you’re in the market for a KitchenAid stand mixer, a Vitamix blender, or a Dyson cordless vacuum, you’ll want to shop Target Deal Days on Target.com or the Target app.
Below, find some of Target’s top kitchen and cooking deals. Are they better than Amazon Prime Day deals? We’ll let you be the judge.
