Target Black Friday sales 2023: 20 deals I recommend on TVs, air fryers, and more

This year’s Target Black Friday deals are already live and there are some awesome discounts on some of our favorite products here at TechRadar. Just today, I’ve spotted superb deals on everything from cheap air fryers to TVs, and a surprisingly decent number of discounts on LEGO sets to boot.

You’ll find a quick selection of my top 20 Target Black Friday deals just down below, all of which reflect the wide range of categories on sale at the retailer. I’ve compared all of these to the latest Black Friday deals at Amazon, Walmart, and other leading retailers and they’re all just as good, if not better.

Perhaps most importantly, these Target Black Friday deals are also all covered by the retailer’s Holiday price match guarantee. That means any of these deals are eligible for a price adjustment rebate should the price go any lower between now and December 24. Target will also price match its competitors within a 14-day period – including Best Buy and Amazon – which is particularly handy since it covers both Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
