We posted the 40-page Target Black Friday 2016 ad on November 9, which is a day later than we expected it. Despite Black Friday being earlier this year, the election has pushed most of the major leaks back a few days. Regardless, the 40 pages are exactly the same as last year, and the format is very similar.

One important thing to note is that pages 2-5 of the ad are for Target’s annual “Early Access” sale. While there is usually nothing too exciting in this event, it does officially kick off Target’s holiday sale, and it is worth taking a look at.
Hours and Opening Time
As usual with Target, the ad is very vague regarding their hours for Thursday and Friday. Regardless, CNBC has reported that Target will open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving this year, which is the same time as last year. With competitor Best Buy opening at 5 p.m., the pressure was there, but Target is sticking to their guns.
What’s different about Target’s sale compared to Walmart and Best Buy is they will remain open the entire night until 10 p.m., 11 p.m. or midnight on Black Friday. Hours will vary by location, so it is recommended that you call your local store in order to verify their specific closing time on Friday.
For those of you who cannot wait until 6 p.m., Target is set to launch online deals early on Thanksgiving morning. In our experience, there is a chance that you will see a few deals even earlier than Thursday, but the top doorbusters will be held off until Turkey Day. The ad states that advertised prices are valid from Nov. 24-26, but it is while supplies last.
Every Item Will Ship for Free — No Exceptions
As we previously reported, Target is offering free shipping with no minimum order size the entire holiday season, and that includes Black Friday. Only Best Buy has matched them so far among the major retailers, and this puts Target at the top of our list when recommending online retailers for small orders. Remember, paying shipping charges for a $20 order at Walmart and Amazon will kill your deal, so we recommend Target and Best Buy in those instances.
Target’s REDcard Saves You An Additional five Percent
While Target is already offering some very competitive prices this year, their REDcard allows you to save an additional five percent on your Thanksgiving and Black Friday purchases. This may not sound like a lot off money, but it is important to remember that many electronics are going to be similarly priced across all of the major retailers. When deciding between two retailers for a specific item, Target’s additional discount of five percent is usually going to give it a lower price.
Target has a strong ad again this year, but a few of their items stand out among the rest.
Hisense 50″ Smart Ultra 4K UHD TV for $249.99
Every single year, Target features an exciting first-page doorbuster on a television, and 2016 is no exception. While this is not one of their usual extremely low price deals, it is a solid offer on a 4K TV. It will be available for $249.99, and the retail price is actually unknown. This is a common practice for larger stores with their television doorbusters, and models can vary by location.
Whether or not this is the right television for you is going to come down to how much you value premium brand names. While Hisense is fairly known at this point, it is far from one of the more quality companies. For the average viewer, this television is probably going to satisfy their needs, but it is not even close to one of the best TVs on the market this year.
As we covered in the Kohl’s Black Friday 2016 ad post, they will be selling a Haier 49″ 4K Ultra HDTV for $249.99 + $75 in Kohl’s Cash. The retail price on that television is $349.99, so you save $100. While both televisions are very similar, the Kohl’s deal is far superior. Adding in the $75 in Kohl’s Cash gives you a net price of $174.99.
The only question you have to ask yourself is if the additional inch from the Target deal is worth the added cost.
PS4 Slim Uncharted 4 Bundle for $249.99
By itself, this is not a special deal. Many other retailers are also offering this same PS4 Slim bundle for $249.99, which is a discount of $50 from the normal retail price of $299.99. The difference here is that having the Cartwheel app can save even more money. How much additional money that you can save is not stated, but the overall price is likely to be under $249.99. If you use your REDcard, you can save an additional 5 percent. If you are in the market for a new PS4 Slim, keep an eye on this deal.
Other Notable Deals
While these did not make our top deals list, they are still among the better offers in the sale.
