Sorry, Amazon, but you can’t have the spotlight all to yourself on July 15 and 16 as Target is staging its own Deals Day to compete with Prime Day.
This comes just days after eBay announced they too were running their own deal day over the same period.
What’s more, there is no membership required to take part in Target’s super sale, so we’re guessing it’s a surefire way for the retail giant to win more customers and higher sales.
According to Target’s press release, Deals Day will be offering rarely-on-sale, exclusive home, apparel and toy brands, plus discounts on hundreds of items and new deals each day.
Aside from enjoying loads of deals, shoppers can get their orders fast through the retail giant’s same-day delivery or pick-up services. Also, Target REDcard holders with a total purchase amount of at least $35 can take advantage of free two-day shipping.
Target won’t be outplayed this time
Target has seemingly formed the habit of scheduling its Deals Day on the same day as Amazon Prime Day. Last year, both events happened on July 17, except that Amazon got the edge over Target as Prime Day was launched at midday the day before.
This time around, Target Deals Day is giving customers more time to shop for the best items and more shipping options.
“Last year’s Target.com One-Day Sale was one of our biggest days of the year for online sales. This year, we’re giving guests more discounts across even more of our assortment with two days to save on hundreds of thousands of items and offering the best options in retail for delivery and pick up on their terms, including same-day.” – Mark Tritton, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer, Target
Target rolled out its same-day delivery service through Shipt earlier this month. For a flat shipping rate of $9.99, customers can receive their orders within an hour.
