Plan ahead

The deals started on Thanksgiving and run through Saturday, November 26 -- store hours vary by location -- and online shoppers will be able to get free shipping (though that seems to be standard policy).

With the exception of two ultra-cheap models, Target's not offering great deals on TVs, but it does have a few notable bargains on consumer electronics I haven't seen elsewhere.

Updated, November 21: One thing I've noticed as the days go on is that like many places Target's having early "sales." I put that in quotation marks because many of those sales ended on the day the Black Friday sales started -- and the Black Friday prices are much better. Case in point: The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8-inch 16GB is $129.99 until Thursday. Then it drops to $99.99. So beware.

Fitbit Charge HR fitness tracker, $89.95

Not only did the reviewer call this "one of the best all-around fitness bands" for its price, but Target's offering it at an aggressively low price that I haven't seen elsewhere.

Sonos Play:1 streaming speaker, $149.99

It's a few years old, but this "fantastically designed compact speaker" hits a new low price in time for the holidays.

Nikon D3400 dual-lens dSLR kit, $499.99

Nikon's entry-level dSLR is going to be one of the popular camera buys this holiday season, and Target's price for the kit with the 18-55mm and 70-300mm lenses is the same as the typical price for the kit with just the 18-55mm kit ($1,000).

Apple Watch Series 1, starting at $198

Everyone's Apple discounts will be about the same, but I called this one out because it looks like Target's starting price for the Apple Watch Series 1 is a little lower than what I've seen thus far.

Beats Solo2 Wireless headphones, $119.99

The biggest objection the reviewer had to these last-generation on-ear wireless headphones was the price. That's not an issue at Target's $120, which is one of the lowest I've seen for these.

Homido Grab VR headset, $24.99

They're no Oculus Rift or Vive, but this cheap headset is a good substitute for the types of things you'd do with Google Cardboard, and Target prices it lower than some other stores.

Xbox One S 500GB, $249.99

This isn't a unique deal -- it's the same price as Best Buy's because it's a manufacturer incentive -- but it's a slim, attractive console that would make a good gift for someone who wants to upgrade to an Xbox One.

DJI Phantom 3 drone, $399.99

This version of DJI's last-generation drone is great for a newbie, especially at its low holiday price. It's not a unique-to-Target deal, though.

Google Chromecast, $25

The seasonal price for the original Google Chromecast is $10 off its usual $35. The older model would be a great stocking-stuffer-priced gift for anyone who still wants to cast HD video to a TV.

Garmin Vivofit 3 fitness tracker, $59.99

This year's improved version of the Vivofit 2 is notable for its year-long battery life, and Target prices the new model at what you'd pay for the older model.

Apple discounts on iPads, iPods and Watch Series 2, 20-25 percent off

You'll see roughly similar discounts for Apple products at a lot of the big retailers, and Target's no different. You'll be able to find the 9.7-inch iPad Pro starting at $449, the iPad Air 2 starting at $274 and the iPad mini 2 starting at $199.79. Plus Target's offering 20 percent off all iPods.

Robotic vacuums, 20 percent off

It's time to add a robo vacuum like a Roomba to your life, and Target's offering 20 percent off everything in its not-inconsiderable selection.

Polaroid 32-inch TV, $85

This dirt-cheap TV has zero frills, but it's very well priced if you just need a basic model.

Hisense 50-inch 4K TV, $249.99

According to our TV reviewer, at 50 inches, 4K resolution won't make any difference in image quality (unless you connect a computer), but that might not matter to you at this price. And it's probably one of the cheapest large-size TVs you'll find.
