The biggest shopping event of the season is starting early this year. Some of the Target Black Friday deals are actually happening right now. Seriously, this is not a drill, people. If you're planning on saving big at your favorite big-box retailer, you need to get to it.

On November 1, Target released its ad showcasing the Black Friday 2018 deals, and shoppers are already freaking out. This year's campaign is filled with 52 pages of too-good-to-miss discounts on electronics, home decor, and affordable fashion. How good, you ask? The Target Black Friday event will have promotions on the brand new iPhone X, and you can score a 55-inch televisions for $200, if you can get to the store in time — which means scarfing Thanksgiving dinner and pretty much running over there.

Target stores will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving day, and won't close until 1 a.m. Take a quick shopping nap that night, because they'll be opening back up again — with even more deals — at 7 a.m. on Black Friday. Also new this year: Target is offering mobile checkout, so you don't need to wait in line to pay for your haul. Simply flag down an associate anywhere in the store, and you can check out with them. (You may have experienced this in an Apple store.) 

And there's more great news for those who don't have much patience: Target is letting us shop a few Black Friday discounts today. In fact, some of the discounts are only available today. There's a major discount on VTech digital video baby monitors. Those are usually $140, but you you can grab one right now for $70. And, my personal favorite, the Instant Pot 7-in-1 Duo 6-qt. pressure cooker is also only $70. And when you grab it now on sale, the retailer will give customers a $10 Target GiftCard. So you're basically getting paid to shop.

As for the best Black Friday deals at Target? We have to call out a few fashion scores: There are $3 tees, $5 pajamas, and $10 sweaters, $1 gloves, and $5 socks coming up.

You can browse all of the deals on Target's website right now. And we suggest using the "save to quick-list" button to keep track of your favorite promotions before the big day.
