There is no room like Target. While online shopping doesn’t create the same frenzy as getting lost in Bullseye’s Playground, the Target Deal Days sale still offers an exciting excuse to browse the virtual aisles. (As if any of us ever needed another excuse to make a quick run to Target.)
The sale runs from now until July 13, and while it may be a direct competitor to Amazon Prime Day, the vast majority of these deals don’t require a membership to purchase. Some of the deals are only available to Target Circle members, but the program is free to join—and it pays to join if you shop at Target even semi-regularly.
The WIRED Gear team tests products throughout the year and hand-sorts through hundreds of thousands of offers to make these picks.
Crossed out products are out of stock or no longer discounted. Our Amazon Prime Day coverage page has the latest stories, and our Prime Day Shopping Tips will help you avoid bad deals. You can also get a 1-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off) here.

Offers for games and fun
This was one of our favorite video games of 2021, and despite being a bit older now, it still holds up. While ’90s kids will especially love it, the title is family-friendly and suitable for everyone – even those of us unfortunate enough to grow up without Aaaahh!!! Real monsters. This promotional price is far lower than other discounts we’ve tracked.
Gloomhaven is one of the most popular — and most expensive — board games. Lion’s jaws it can be played as a standalone game or as an expansion to the original. It is suitable for two or more players aged 14 and over.
There are tons of Lego sets on sale, ranging from $10 Classic Brick sets to Minecraft– thematic models. The inclusive Duplo and Friends lines are also featured in this sale. The quality of the deal depends on which set you’re looking at, but the discounts are generally good, especially for parents looking to keep their kids entertained this summer.
Target circle members only
This workbook is a great option for future Kindergarteners, and the clip coupon drops it to just $3 for Target Circle members. Choose free in-store pickup where applicable to skip shipping charges. Be sure to check out these school supply deals for extra student savings.
This sale has nearly 50,000 titles to choose from, including children’s classics and adult thrillers. The discount will be automatically reflected at checkout.
Offers for the household and outdoors
This isn’t an uncommon sale on our cheap carpet cleaner, so there’s no need to rush out to add it to your cart, but if you’re already in the market, we think you’ll love this one for small stains (if you’ve got a big old house that needs serious deep cleaning, maybe look for something bigger). It is light and easy to maneuver, and the trigger for dosing the solution is located on the handle. There are also separate tanks for clean and dirty water that can be removed for rinsing. This price has been matched on Amazon.
The larger Hoover SmartWash we like is also discounted from Target, though it’s cheaper on Amazon right now.
Tons of clothes and shoes are on sale. The selection includes options for men, women and children. It’s not just limited to shirts and pants – you can also get deals on shoes and swimwear. Prices are shown on the product page.
While it’s not hard to find deals on mixers while shopping, this model comes in some unique and beautiful colors. KitchenAid mixers are popular for good reason. They are excellent for baking as well as for cooking in general. While this discount is nice, if you’re determined to get the lowest possible price ($200-$250, perhaps), it’s best to wait until Black Friday to buy them.
Nothing screams “college” like one of these bad boys. Pillows like this are never genuine comfortable, but they’re handy for homework, bedtime reading, and movie nights. This one has a fluffy coating for extra softness.
These types of clothing storage racks have become popular online over the past few years. They are great for small apartments or bedrooms, especially if you have limited storage space. This rack has shelves on the side to hold shoes or storage bins – a feature that is hard to find in other similarly priced versions. Consider Gen Z cool points as an added bonus.
Offers for health and beauty
There are plenty of cheaper massage guns you can buy (and we love a bunch of them!), but the Pro is the best of Theragun’s line—Theraguns (made by Therabody) are like the Kleenex of the percussion world. It’s the brand’s quietest device and comes with five attachment heads to soften different muscles.
The Mini is also on sale for $160 ($40 off), if you really want the Theragun but want to spend as little as possible. However, there are better options than the Mini. The triangular design of the other Theraguns makes them much more ergonomic. The Theragun Prime, which we didn’t test, costs $250 ($50 off).
We think most people would be fine with the Theragun Elite, including athletes, but this Pro is a beast in the line, putting out 60 pounds of force, while the Elite uses 40 pounds. It also has a rotating arm so it’s even easier for attachments to hit the right spot. If you have the money to spend, you’ll love it, but $500 is a big sale price.
You can still enjoy some of Therabody technology without spending hundreds. This Wave Roller combines traditional foam rolling with massage vibrations. It won’t get into knots as effectively, but you can pair it with a cheaper massage gun if you need it.
