Target has released an early look at its Black Friday ads.
Some deals that caught our eye:
- Nintendo Switch System: $300; includes a FREE Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game.
- Instant Pot 7-in-1 Duo Nova: Insta Pots and other electric cookers have skyrocketed in popularity. Unfortunately, so has their price. We used to see these for around $50, but now it seems you’re looking at closer to $100 for any model. Target is offering this model for under $70.
- Google Home Mini: Hands-free help for $19.
- iRobot Roomba 675 Wi-Fi robotic vacuum: IMO, an indispensable helper for any household. Available for $199.99.
