Updated Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23
Xbox One S for $190 ($90 off), plus $25 gift card
Target is bundling the Xbox One S with a $25 gift card that brings the net price down for $165 -- the lowest price we've seen anywhere so far, though no games come bundled with the base model.

Sony PlayStation 4 Slim for $200 ($100 off)
Compact and quiet with all of the PS4 awesomeness you'd expect, and 1TB of storage to boot. A solid deal for the money. No bundled games, though. (Best Buy and other retailers have the same offer.)

GoPro Hero5 Session bundle for $250 ($50 off)
Most retailers are selling the Hero5 Session for $300. Target's letting it go for $50 cheaper, and throwing in a head strap and 16GB SD card for good measure. (Best Buy has a similar offer.)

GoPro Hero5 Black for $350 ($50 off), plus $50 gift card
The GoPro Hero5 Black delivers everything you need for terrific video on the go. With a $50 gift card, Target's net price is the lowest we've come across. (Best Buy has a similar offer.)

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice remote for $25 ($15 off)
If you watch a lot of TV shows and movies from Amazon -- and use the Alexa voice assistant -- the Fire TV stick is a no-brainer. A small, cheap and competent streamer at a rock-bottom price. Amazon has the same deal all weekend.

Google Chromecast for $20 ($15 off)
This dirt-cheap wireless video dongle gets even cheaper on Black Friday. And it supports streaming from all of the major players via Android/Apple phone, tablet or PC. Originally advertised as selling for $25 on Black Friday, Target is selling it for $20 right now.

49-inch TCL Roku 4K HDR TV for $350 ($30 off)
Sure, you can find the non-4K version in smaller sizes for less. And Amazon has the larger 55-inch one for a few bucks more -- but it's currently backordered. So if you want to take home our favorite smart TV operating system built into a nicely sized 49-inch screen, this is it.

JBL Charge 3 for $90 ($60 off)
Great design, fully waterproof, loud and bass-heavy, and a port to juice up your phone -- what's not to like? A worthy deal for a portable Bluetooth speaker that doubles as a charging station.
See the JBL Charge 3 at Target (discount available now)
10.5-inch Apple iPad Pro for $530 ($120 off)
Apple's come close to perfecting the form with the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. An excelllent display, superfast performance and killer cameras, all tied together with iOS 11. (Best Buy has it at the same price.)
See the Apple iPad Pro at Target (discount available now)
9.7-inch 2017 Apple iPad for $250 ($80 off)
We've seen the newest version of the Apple iPad pop up elsewhere (i.e. Micro Center) for $250, but only as an in-store item. Given that Target's deal is available both online and in stores, it's the most accessible way to grab an iPad for relative peanuts.

$250 gift card with purchase of iPhone 8
If you're in the market for an iPhone 8, this is a deal worth considering. There's no direct discount -- but with the $250 gift card, you end up with money in your pocket you'd otherwise not have.
See the iPhone 8 at Target (gift card deal available now)
$250 gift card with purchase of iPhone 8 Plus
The same deal applies to the 8 Plus. This one is also at its normal retail price, but you'll get an extra $250 to spend later at Target. Not too shabby.
See the iPhone 8 Plus at Target (gift card deal available now)
Apple Watch Series 1 (38mm) for $180 ($70 off)
Sure, it doesn't have GPS and it's not swimproof. But the Series 1 model has nearly everything else and it's the least expensive way to get an Apple Watch on your wrist -- now for less than $200 for the smaller 38mm model.

$300 gift card with purchase of Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Samsung's first dual-camera handset tops the S8 and S8 Plus with portrait mode and a digital stylus you can use for everything from handwriting notes to creating GIFs. Again, you get no discount off the regular price, but Target will throw in a $300 gift card.

$300 gift card with purchase of Samsung Galaxy S8
Scoring high marks across the board, this everyday Android phone has it all: a great screen, a top-notch camera, strong battery life and extras like waterproofing and wireless charging. It's very similar to the aforementioned Note, just missing the dual camera (with portrait mode) and a stylus.

$300 gift card with purchase of Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
Credit Samsung for making this seriously big phone look graceful. Plus, you get killer performance, battery life, water resistance and wireless charging.

Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones for $240 ($60 off), plus $30 gift card
These solid, comfortable headphones sound good but are too expensive. Well, until now. Between the discount and the gift card, this is the best price we've seen for the Solo3.

DJI Spark Mini Drone for $400 ($100 off)
A terrific, lightweight and impossibly compact drone that delivers solid image quality and all of the features most people will need. (Best Buy also has this deal.)

DJI Mavic Pro for $900 ($100 off)
With a compact, foldable design, the Spark's slightly bigger brother has better battery life. Like the Spark, it has all the controls you need and can be piloted with an iOS or Android device.

Fitbit Alta HR for $100 ($50 off)
Fitbit's best basic all-around fitness tracker monitors heart rate and tracks everything automatically. Good battery life and a compact design make it the best Fitbit of 2017. This deal is also available at Amazon and elsewhere.

Fitbit Charge 2 for $100 ($50 off)
A great multiline OLED display that shows time, fitness data and heart rate makes the Charge 2 a compelling option. Add five-day battery life and you've got a winner.

Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition for $70 ($30 off)
An inexpensive, user-friendly tablet that provides access to all that Amazon Prime offers. The Kids Edition's two-year, no-questions-asked replacement guarantee seals the deal. This deal is also available at Amazon, of course.

Amazon Fire HD 10 for $100 ($50 off)
It may not be able to go feature-for-feature with the higher-end players, but the Amazon Fire HD 10 is an amazing value for a tablet with a high-res display and all of Alexa's skills. Also available at Amazon.

Amazon Echo Dot for $30 ($20 off)
The Echo Dot is easiest way to get someone on the Alexa bandwagon. And this Black Friday pricing makes it the cheapest, too. (Nearly every other retailer, including Amazon, will be selling the Dot at this price, too.)
See the Amazon Echo Dot at Target (discount available now)
Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) for $80 ($20 off)
New for 2017, the second-generation Echo offers better sound than the Dot and an affordable price tag. Other retailers will also have this price.

Sony PlayStation VR headset for $200 ($70 off)
Hands down, the most accessible, affordable and user-friendly full VR option on the market. Now available at the lowest price we've come across.
See the Sony PlayStation VR headset at Target (discount available now)
Nest Cam Indoor for $139 ($61 off)
Between the high-resolution, 1080p video, the magnetic base, the user-friendly app and the sub-$150 price, this deal on the Nest Cam was looking fairly unbeatable -- until we saw the new (and great) Amazon Cloud Cam will be selling for $100 at Amazon.
See the Nest Cam Indoor at Target (discount available now)
Legend of Zelda Edition Nintendo 2DS for $80 (with Ocarina of Time game)
The Nintendo 2DS is an affordable, portable and accessible gaming system. At $80, this special edition is a steal, further sweetened by the fact that it come preloaded with a game. Plus, it's available now! (Just note that it doesn't play classic SNES titles -- you'll need a pricier New Nintendo 2DS XL or 3DS XL for that.)
See the Legend of Zelda Edition Nintendo 2DS at Target (discount appears to be available in-store only; available online elsewhere)
Google Home Mini for $29 ($20 off), plus $10 gift card
Fitbit Blaze for $150 ($50 off)
Fitbit's smartwatch gets a lot of things right, including comfort, features and price. And $50 off, it gets even more things even righter.
