Target couldn’t wait more than a day before Amazon announced the official dates for Prime Big Deal Days with the announcement of Target Circle Week. “Oh, Amazon is having a huge sale that lasts 48 hours on October 11th and 12th? Conveniently, we have a huge holiday sale that runs from the entire week of October 1st through the 7th.” Best Buy has similar plans.
How often is Circle Week at Target?
This is Target’s second Circle Week of the year, and yes, of class the first took place near Prime Day in July. The whole week-long thing is a departure from Target’s previous Prime Day opposition: a 72-hour event called Deal Days that was open to everyone, not just Target Circle members. Circle Week is also timed much closer to Prime Day and typically gets a head start.
There’s no problem being a member of Target Circle to access the glory of Circle Week, as joining Target Circle is free, unlike Prime.

What is for sale during Target Circle Week?
Target Circle members get up to 40% off in categories like trendy gifts, seasonal items and everyday essentials. During the official dates of Circle Week (until December 24), members should keep a close eye on the Deal of the Day spotlight: brands such as Apple, Nespresso, Dyson and Nintendo will be in attendance.
Target also doesn’t shy away from giving away free money to encourage customers to shop more. Similar to Amazon’s promotion that exchanges a sign-up for Amazon Photos for a free $15 Prime Day credit, Target is known for sticking $5 or $10 gift cards on purchases of a certain amount or from a certain category.
