The holiday shopping season is well underway, and several retailers, including Target, are offering some spectacular Cyber Monday deals for this annual shopping event. Some of the best discounts we’re currently seeing extend to wireless earbuds like the Beats Studio Buds ($89.99), as well as TVs like Vizio’s 50-inch M6-Series QLED (now $399.99). And if you’ve been putting off buying up until now, this may be the day to do it: many of the deals that Target is offering have been dropped still lower ahead of Cyber Monday.

Here, we’ve collected some of the best discounts you can find at Target, many of which were available through Thanksgiving / Black Friday weekend and price matched elsewhere. Target has been rolling out new deals every Sunday so we’ll be updating this page on a weekly basis as new deals and discounts become available. As usual, we’ll make sure to give you a heads-up as to which deals are online exclusives, which is something Target promises for the 2022 holiday shopping season.

The best Cyber Monday deals at Target

The Cyber Monday Apple deals

The best Cyber Monday earbud and Bluetooth speaker deals

  • The Beats Studio Buds are currently on sale at Target for $89.99 — an all-time low — instead of their usual $149.99. While the Beats Fit Pros are going to be the first option for anyone shopping for Beats earbuds, the Studio Buds still offer solid sound quality at an attractive price point. Read our review.

The best Cyber Monday streaming device deals

  • The Roku Streambar consolidates the Roku OS with a compact soundbar that supports 4K HDR playback. The Roku Streambar was initially $129.99, but is currently on sale at Target for $79.99 — its lowest price ever. While not as powerful as the Streambar Pro, the standard, 14-inch Streambar shares the same OS and connectivity options as the larger model, and is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa via the included remote. You can also pair the Streambar with Roku’s wireless satellite speakers and subwoofers (sold separately) if you need to make more noise.

The best Cyber Monday TV deals

The best Cyber Monday deals on Amazon devices

The best Cyber Monday deals on Google devices

  • Google’s Nest Mini is discounted to just $19.99 at Target, or about $30 off the usual price of the lozenge-shaped home assistant. The Nest Mini can double as a compact speaker but serves primarily as an access point for Google Assistant, allowing you to control your other smart devices from any room in your home. Google Assistant doesn’t offer quite as much functionality as Amazon’s Alexa, but it’s great for handling simple home automation, and it won’t follow up every request with an unrelated “by the way” chat.

  • On the cheaper Pixel front, it’s very hard to beat the Google Pixel 6A for just $299, marked down from an already reasonable $449. This deal is all over, including Target. Just promise you’ll get the sage color option. Read our review.
  • The Google Pixel Watch is about $299 ($50 off) at Target for the Wi-Fi-only version. This watch has a gorgeous circular display, as well as native Fitbit integration. It also comes with three months of YouTube Music and six months of Fitbit Premium. The Pixel Watch is a first-gen device, however, so keep in mind that Google is still working out some kinks.

The best Cyber Monday gaming deals

  • Target is currently discounting the Xbox Wireless Controller in its standard and vivid colors, dropping the price of select models to $39.99 or $44.99 — down from $59.99 or $64.99. The no-frills accessory is powered by a pair of AA batteries and can last for up to 40 hours, but can also be used with a wired USB-C connection. While Xbox Wireless Controllers are naturally compatible with Xbox consoles, you can also use them with PCs and mobile devices thanks to their Bluetooth connectivity.
  • At first glance, you’d be forgiven for mistaking HyperX’s Cloud Core Wireless — which is currently on sale for $49.99 ($50 off) at Target — for its more expensive cousin, the Cloud II Wireless. Both feature virtually the same design, with a padded leatherette band and removable earcups, as well as the ability to pair with devices via 2.4Ghz wireless. It also features a detachable, noise-canceling microphone and the same 53mm drivers, which manage to deliver punchy, balanced sound when we tested them in the Cloud II Wireless. Both feature support for DTS:X virtual surround sound as well, allowing for more precise directional audio while gaming.
  • Target is also featuring a handful of sales on physical and digital copies of games that would typically cost $59.99. If you’re gaming on the PC or Xbox, you can pick up a physical copy of Halo: Infinite for Xbox for just $19.99 ($40 off).

The best Cyber Monday smart home deals

  • The days are only getting colder, so having some fine control over the heating in your home can pay some real dividends. Thankfully, one of our favorite smart thermostats, the third-gen Google Nest Learning Thermostat, is discounted at Target to $179 ($70 off), matching its lowest price to date. The handy smart thermostat allows you to schedule and control the temperature of your house, whether you’re at home or away, through voice assistants or the Nest app. It can even learn your preferences over time and keep tabs on the local forecast to fine-tune the temperature for you.

Other great Cyber Monday deals you can get at Target

  • You can buy Amazon’s latest Kindle Paperwhite with ads and 8GB of storage for $94.99 instead of $139.99 at Target. The waterproof e-reader comes with USB-C support and monthslong battery life along with a bigger display than the previous model. Read our review.
  • You can buy the latest version of Apple’s Wi-Fi-enabled iPad Mini with 64GB of storage for $399.99 ($100 off) at Target. The redesigned Apple iPad Mini offers USB-C support, and though it isn’t powered by Apple’s M2 or M1 chips, it offers an A15 Bionic processor that’s still powerful. Read our review.
  • You can buy Ultimate Ears’ waterproof Boom 3 for around $100 instead of $149.99 at Target. The Boom 3 is one of our favorite Bluetooth speakers, with good sound quality and terrific battery life that should provide up to 15 hours of playback.
