Target sales are constant throughout the year, but there some key events such as the Target Toy Sale and the Target Black Friday sale where you stand to save even more than at other times of the year.
This sale calendar will help you to pinpoint those major sale events, and save some cash!
While many people still frequent physical Target stores regularly, Target Online can be a lifesaver when you are too busy (or tired!) to get to the shops, and don't want to miss that deal.
The beauty of shopping at Target online is that you can use FREE Click & Collect (for orders over $20) and pick up your items at a time that suits you better.
