Attention Target shoppers, there's a pretty wide deal that covers much of, but not all of, the mega-retailer's products.
Shoppers had already spent $531 million as of 10 a.m. ET. The ad doesn't indicate which bundles qualify for the deal, but it'd be peachy if we could grab the limited edition Black Friday Mario Kart 8 Deluxe system making the rounds along with the gift cards. Other popular products include video game Red Dead Redemption 2, Roku and Beats headphones. That's 23.6 percent more than consumers spent online during Black Friday 2017 according to Adobe Analytics.
The National Retail Federation forecast U.S. holiday retail sales, including online, in November and December will increase between 4.3 percent and 4.8 percent over 2017, for a total of $717.45 billion to $720.89 billion.
