Target Deal Days is currently underway, with a get-’em-while-they’re-here slew of bargains only available until Oct. 8 (that’s Saturday, people). The early Black Friday pricing lasts just three days and features home goods, appliances, tech and more for up to 60% off, making it a great time to round out your kitchen for holiday entertaining, pick up some gifts or indulge in a cool new accent for the house.
And don’t forget, this is just the first in a slew of incoming early holiday deals: Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale kicks off on Oct. 11, and other major retailers like Wayfair may also join in on the savings.
Read on for our favorite picks from the sale event, then head online or in store to shop the rest (some deals are online-only, though — fair warning!).

Personal preferences aside, this is some serious hand-me-down cookware, and deals like $313 off a great roaster/braiser/stewpot don’t come around often. If gray’s not your thing, there’s a 30% off, 7-quart round cocotte in a soft white and way more to choose from too.

Dyson’s stick vac gets fine particles out of the cracks between hardwood planks as well as from upholstery threads with a ton of power and great maneuverability.
