Last Year’s Black Friday Ad

Updated on Friday November 18, 2022: All of Target’s Black Friday 2022 ads have arrived, including the one we were all waiting for, the 4th one for the main event! They are all posted below (some of the deals are NOW LIVE at in-stores and at target.com!). Here’s a quick summary of what you need to know:

  • Just like last year, Target’s main Black Friday deals begin at the very end of October (this year on October 30th). They will be running a different set of deals each week for 4 weeks straight, until Saturday evening, the day after Black Friday. On top of that, a short 3-day-only batch of deals begins on Thanksgiving day itself.
  • Target’s main event Black Friday 2022 ad is pages 70 page long. he event kicks off on Sunday, November 20th.
  • All the deals will be available both in-stores and online throughout the event. If shopping the doorbuster ad, keep in mind that Target will be be closed on Thanksgiving day itself (this is confirmed). Doors are expected to open at 7:00AM on Friday morning.
  • In terms of the deals, TV’s, toys, mobile phones, small kitchen appliances, shoes, winter apparel and other small electronics are usually the featured categories you’ll find in their ad.

Black Friday 2022 Start & End Dates

Ever since we started tracking Target’s Black Friday sales, the deals have always started on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving with early 24-hour access given to Target RedCard credit card holders. But two years ago it all changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than one big sale, they’ve been running four separate events with different specials featured at each of them (that’s similar to what Walmart did last year as is once again doing this year). The same type of weekly deals are returning again at Target too.

  • Confirmed sale start/end dates: The Black Friday 2022 event begins on Sunday October 30th with new deals being released every week on Sunday throughout the month of November:
    • BF Ad #1: Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2022 (this ad is now posted!).
    • BF Ad #2: November 6-12, 2022 (this ad is now posted!).
    • BF Ad #3: November 13-19, 2022 (this ad is now posted!).
    • BF Ad #4: November 20-26, 2022 (this ad is now posted!).
    • BF Doorbuster Ad: November 24-26, 2022 (this ad is now posted!).

Just remember, all of the advertised doorbuster specials that you’ll see are in limited quantities, sometimes even as a few units per store and are likely to sell out quickly. That’s why it’s best to have your list put together and a plan of action to first pick up the most important items.

Target’s Black Friday 2022 ad, Main Event!

You’ll find Target’s 4th and final Black Friday 2022 ad posted below (it’s their main event!). You can take advantage of the advertised specials in this ad in-stores or at target.com from November 20-26, 2022 or while in-stock supplies last. However, some of the deals will only be available for 3 days, from Thursday November 24th (Thanksgiving day) through Saturday November 26th (as indicated in the ad). Happy bargain hunting!

Our Favorite Deals for 2022

Similar to Kohl’s and Walmart, Target’s Black Friday ad is pretty big. It’s packed with everything from TV’s to games, small kitchen appliances to toys, and a whole lot more. Here’s what you should be on the lookout for when shopping the deals here in 2022:

  • Televisions — Target usually has at least one TV featured on the front page of their ad and then another few pages devoted to them, typically on the third through sixth pages. Last year’s doorbuster TV’s included several Samsung Smart UHD HDR TV’s: a 50” for $329.99, a 55” for $379.99 and a 60” for $479.99. If you need something a bit smaller then there was also a 32” Element ROKU Smart LED TV on sale for $89.99.
  • Samsung Phones & Apple iPhones — If it’s time to upgrade your phone to something a bit newer, then Target was offering up to $400 in store gift cards for qualifying phone purchases with activation. That was on top of their Black Friday prices. Best of all, deals were available on both annual and pre-paid plans.
  • Gaming Consoles & Games — If you tried to pick up PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X last holiday season then you were probably disappointed… they were nowhere to be found. And even though Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart were advertising in-stock availability on Black Friday, there were literally only a few units per store. This year is expected to be much different with several bundles offered and in-stock. You can also expect deals on games and accessories, including controllers, headsets and more.
  • Home Cleaning — We are still spending a lot more time at home due to the lingering Coronavirus pandemic and as a result, our homes are a mess (at least mine is thanks to the kiddos!). We’re expecting Target to once again feature specials on the latest iRobot Roomba robotic vacuums, Dyson and Bissell cordless vacuums, and some traditional uprights from Dirt Devil, Hoover and Shark.
  • Toys — With Christmas just around the corner, don’t wait until the last minute to pick you some toys for your kids. About half way through Target’s Black Friday ad there should be a few pages of featured toys on sale. Last year they had select puzzles and board games at 50% off, Lego sets from as low as $19.99/each, and huge stuffed animals for as low as $10. We’re expecting to see similar price points to return again for 2022.
