Either Target is just being lazy and reckless or it’s participating in retail war. The big box chain store has decided to open up Sunday, November 27, and go through Monday with a storewide 15 percent discount, in-store or online. It’s a flat, automatic, couponless discount applied at checkout that tops off whatever discount is already on whatever you buy.
There has to be a catch, right? Well, here are the products that don’t fall into this discount.
- Gift and prepaid cards
- Beauty Advent Calendar
- Elf on the Shelf
- Cards Against Humanity (really?)
- Joking Hazard
- Simple Human
- DSLR gear
- LG TVs
- Samsung TVs
- Google products
- Dairy milk
- CVS pharmacy
- Target Optical
- Portrait Studio
- Company Store purchases
Target is explicitly offering discounts on “Apple products,” though. Just to give you a sampler:
- A pair of Beats Solo3 wireless headphones will cost about $244.99 (regularly $299.99)
- A 6th-gen iPod Touch will be priced between $135.99 and $203.99 ($159.99-$239.99)
- A standard Apple Watch Series 2 will cost $314.49 for a 38mm case and $339.99 for a 42mm case ($369.99 and $399.99)
- An iPad mini 2 with Wi-Fi will cost $229.49 ($269.99)
- While an iPad Pro 12.9″ with Wi-Fi will cost between $679.99 and $934.99 ($799.99-$1,099.99)
- A 32GB iPhone 7 for $30.69 per month for two years or $552.49 total ($36.11 per month or $649.99 total)
Mind you, other smartphones and mobile technology are available at 15 percent off, too, like the unlocked Moto G4 Play for $127.49 ($149.99) and, believe it or not, a discontinued BlackBerry Classic S for $280.49 ($329.99).
