Target’s 2015 Black Friday Ad brings deals on tech and toys
Released earlier today, Target’s 2015 Black Friday ad is loaded up with a large variety of technology deals in product categories like HDTVs and tablets as well as toys, video games and clothing. (You can check out the full version here.)
Of course, we have scoured through the 40-page advertisement to highlight the best of the best. These deals have compared to our historical deal data. Check out the full list below:
1. Westinghouse 55″ 1080p HDTV ($249)
The most recent sale on this television brought the price down to $400 at Best Buy. Target’s price knocks off an additional $150, possibly making it one of the least expensive 55-inch models available in stores on Black Friday. While Westinghouse is definitely an off-brand, this could make for an excellent television purchase for a secondary room in a household; bedroom, office, etc…
2. Apple Watch ($349)
While the sales price on the Apple Watch isn’t exciting, the $100 gift card bonus most certainly is interesting. In general, Apple products rarely go on sale, thus deals like this one are ideal on Black Friday. The lowest we have seen the Apple Watch price drop to this year is $330 on eBay.
3. LEGO Creator Bike Shop & Café ($55)
Another brand that rarely has sales, this LEGO builder set will be reduced by 40 percent on Black Friday. According to our previous data, the lowest recorded price on this model was $69 during July 2015. You will also find a great price on two additional LEGO sets, including one from The LEGO Movie.
4. Xbox One 500GB Gears of War Bundle ($299)
While the sales price is in line with other retailers on Black Friday, the $60 bonus gift card definitely sweetens the pot. That’s potentially a better option for someone looking for the base console rather than having to spend a larger sum on a bundle with additional games.
5. LG 49″ 4K 2160p HDTV ($499)
Beating a historical low of $548 at Walmart during October 2015, this is a fantastic price on a 4K television in the 49-inch size. Be aware that the majority of video content is still encoded in 1080p rather than 2160p. That content will be upscaled to take advantage of the additional resolution. To see native 4K content, look to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.
6. Audi Convertible 6V Ride-On ($85)
Beating a historical low of $119 sold by Target through eBay, this $85 price is roughly 55 percent off the normal MSRP. This powered car travels roughly 2.5 MPH and is recommended for children ages three and up.
7. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 16GB 9.7″ Tablet ($229)
While we have seen this model drop to $220 previously, this price is actually better with the bonus $30 gift card included in the mix, ostensibly bringing the price down to $199. This Samsung tablet was released during mid-2015.
8. Guitar Hero Live ($59)
Beating the best deal (Bonus $15 GC at Dell) we’ve seen on this brand new game, the 40 percent discount on Guitar Hero Live beats out prices at gaming stores like Gamestop. The game will be available for the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360.
9. 7-Piece Disney Princess Ultimate Doll Collection ($40)
Beating a historical low of $45 (also sold by Target this month), this is the lowest price that we have seen on this Disney doll set. It’s likely the doll set will be at the same price during early to mid-December when toy sales kick into high gear.
10. Pebble Time Smart Watch ($130)
Beating a historical low of $150 during a Best Buy sale this month, this is the best price we have every seen on the Pebble Time. If you are unfamiliar with Pebble watches, this watch is compatible with both iOS and Android platforms. It offers a color display and excellent battery life.
