Target 'Deal Days' 2020: 13 Discounts We Like (Prime Day Rival Sale)

Target has dangled its Deal Days sales event for weeks, but it remained tight-lipped about the details until it started. The suspense may have been worth it, because we found a bunch of items we've previously bestowed with WIRED Recommends awards. These are our favorite deals on smart home devices, audiophile gear, computer accessories, and more. The sale runs through Wednesday, October 14.

Update for October 15: Target Deal Days and Amazon Prime Day are technically over, but most of these deals are still active as of this morning.

Note: We strike through items that sell out or rise in price as we update this guide. Discounts sometimes return quickly, so check for yourself.

Audio Deals

  • JBL Clip 3 Speaker for $40 ($30 off): With a built-in carabiner, the Clip 3 is meant to be attached to a backpack or hung from a tentpole so you can have tunes where a full-size boombox would be unwieldy or difficult. Its IPX7 water-resistant rating means it'll survive a dunk in a meter of water, and it has 10 hours of playtime between charges. There's no headphone port on the Clip 3, so if you need that, opt for the Clip 2.

  • Beats Studio3 Noise Canceling Headphones for $200 ($150 off): These over-ear Bluetooth headphones are starting to show their age, but they're still pretty good and sync very well with iPhones. They feature active noise cancellation to muffle out the background whir of jet engines and noisy neighbors. You can receive calls, control music, and activate Siri through controls on the ear cups, and get 22 hours of use out of them before having to recharge.

  • Apple AirPods Pro for $200 ($50 off): We dislike the standard AirPods, but the AirPods Pro are some of the best wirefree earbuds on the market. You can often find them for about $230, but they're rarely discounted this much. Parker Hall, the WIRED Reviews team's premier audiophile, loved them. This deal has since gone up in price, to $234 which is just $15 off.

Google Home Deals

  • Google Nest Hub & Hello Doorbell for $290 ($30 off): You have to add the Hub and the Hello Doorbell to your cart to see the offer and get the deal. The Hello Doorbell gives you a porch view of your stoop, letting you communicate with package delivery people when you're not home and peek at who's ringing your doorbell before deciding whether to answer the door. Target is bundling it with a Nest Hub smart display. You can control the doorbell through Google Assistant with the Nest Hub.

  • Google Nest Mini (Refurbished) for $40 ($10 off): A Nest Mini is the best way to start building up your smart home with access to Google Assistant, one of the best voice assistants around. It's also an affordable way to add a speaker to more rooms if you want to expand your setup.

  • Google Nest Thermostat E for $140 ($30 off): Google just announced a new Nest Thermostat, which is cheaper than this model. But it doesn't have the behavioral learning feature—over time, the Thermostat E learns what temperatures you like and when. It'll start to adjust itself in line with your preferences. You can set schedules, adjust those schedules through the app when you're not home, and see how much energy your household has been using.
