Black Friday 2021: Big savings at Target on KitchenAid, Apple Watch, Pixel 6 and much more – CNET

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Get ready, get set… and go! The holiday shopping season is officially upon us and retailers are finally starting to kick off their major Black Friday events. One of the first to do so is Target, who’s sale went live on Sunday morning (Nov. 21), and will run until Saturday, Nov. 27. It includes a whole new batch of deals on items including the Apple Watch SE, Google Pixel 6, 4K TVs, kitchen appliances and much more. We’ve sifted through the new drop, and you can see our early picks for the best deals of the bunch below. Like most other major retailers, Target has also been running early Black Friday deals all month long, and plenty have carried over into the main event. You can see the best of those below as well. Target has its work cut out for it though, as Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart also have huge Black Friday events either happening now or just around the corner — all of which are offering their own impressive sets of deals.

Two important things to keep in mind:

  • Some of these deals will require you to pick them up at your local Target.
  • Amazon and Best Buy are matching prices on many, but not all, of these deals.

We will keep updating this page with all the greatest deals from Target’s ongoing sale as we continue to sniff them out. This article was most recently updated Monday, Nov. 22. Without further ado, let’s check out the best Target deals happening right now.

This 55-inch TCL TV boasts an ultra-high definition picture with high dynamic range and instant access to hundreds of streaming services right out of the box. The TV was featured as a part of Target’s wave of early deals, and just dropped another $20.


This KitchenAid Professional Series stand mixer offers a lot of power and versatility in a compact package. It features 10 speed settings and a bowl-lift design that is perfect for larger batches and dense ingredients. It comes with a set of whisks, flat beaters, and a dough hook, but there are over 10 additional attachments available to help you get even more out of this mixer without sacrificing more counter-space.


This 2021 model of the Fire HD 10 Plus is Amazon’s most advanced tablet to date. It features 4GB of RAM (twice as much as the previous generation) and a stunning 1080p 10.1″ display. And at 42% off, this is the absolute lowest price we’ve seen. 

It is also price matched at Best Buy and Amazon.


Air fryers have been all the rage lately, and for good reason. They can cook up hot, delicious meals much faster than a traditional oven or deep fryer, and with a fraction of the mess. This high-capacity model from PowerXL even features two frying baskets so you can easily cook multiple items at the same time.

The Pixel 6 is the newest model in Google’s line of phones, boasting a 6.4 inch smooth display, impressive 50mp camera, and Google’s first-ever Tensor processor.


Like other retailers, Target doesn’t offer a direct discount on the Oculus Quest 2, but you will get a free $50 gift card that can be used towards a future purchase. The Quest 2 rarely gets discounted, and while you are still technically paying full price for the unit itself, the gift card is something you won’t want to miss out on.


This 14-inch laptop has a full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and offers up to 12 hours of battery life per charge. It may not be suitable for gaming or video editing, but it’s perfect for web browsing and casual media consumption.


The SodaStream Terra was featured as part of Target’s early deals, but as part of its main event it’s dropped another $10, bringing it to its lowest price to date.


This upright vacuum is designed for both hardwood and carpet and features a 25-foot cord that can retract with the push of a button.


Both the Mario and Luigi sets will be on sale for $60, which is the best price we’ve seen to date. This kit lets you use your Switch to control a real-life Mario Kart race by setting up the course on your floor and watching it come to life on your screen in augmented reality.

Target’s Black Friday savings didn’t just start, the retailer has been rolling out great deals all month long. While the main event might have brought on a new wave of sales, there are plenty of early deals that are still going strong. Here are our top picks from those early rounds of savings that are still valid. And unlike items from the main sale, there is no guarantee that these discounts will hold out until Saturday.

This 4K TV is a solid bet, making this a good deal for the quality.
