Fall is here! And while the idea of crisp mornings, cozy clothes and hearty meals has us filled with excitement, as professional shoppers there's another reason why autumn is arguably our favorite season — because it's filled with sales!

From Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale to Cyber Monday and Black Friday events, the fall months are typically jam-packed with discounts on nearly every item you could imagine, from Apple products to fashion staples. So it seems only fitting that Target, one of the first places we turn to to find deals, announced on the first day of the season that it would be bringing back its huge Target Deal Days event. Here, we're sharing everything you need to know.

What is Target Deal Days?

Target hosted its first multi-day Deal Days in 2019, and it has become a staple event for shoppers who are hoping to score deals on par with those you'd typically find on major shopping holidays. While the retailer hosted one Deal Days event already this year, Target will be bringing it back next week, from Oct. 6 to 8, for round two.

According to the brand, this Deal Days event will be its biggest yet and you can expect to see hundreds of thousands of deep discounts on items across all categories, from toys to tech and everyday essentials. So we imagine that it'll be the perfect time to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Plus, you should be able to pick up a few fun items for yourself while you're at it.

Does Target price match?

Target has also announced that its Holiday Price Match Guarantee will start earlier than ever and last longer than in previous years. Starting on Oct. 6 if you purchase an item in-store or online during that time period and the price drops any lower at Target on or before Dec. 24, the brand says that you can request a price adjustment on your purchase.
