This might be early Octoer, but it’s already early Black Friday at Target.

The retailer’s fall Target Deal Days sale kicked off today, with hundreds of thousands of deals both in stores and online. It runs through Saturday, Oct. 8.

Target describes the event as offering “3 days of early Black Friday deals,” with savings currently as high as 50%.

Some of the deals will be available all three days, while others will be available only on one particular day.

Just to name a few of the offers available today, you can save up to $150 on certain Apple products, save $130 on a Dyson cordless stick vacuum, and save $100 on — and get a free $25 Target gift card with — the purchase of an LG 65-inch smart TV.

In addition, Target’s Price Match Guarantee went into effect today. According to Target:

“This year, Target’s industry-leading Holiday Price Match Guarantee will extend longer than ever, from Oct. 6 through Dec. 24. That means guests can choose to shop early with confidence knowing that if the price goes lower at Target later in the season, the retailer will price match it.”

This policy applies to purchases from Target stores and the retailer’s website. It gives shoppers 14 days to request a price adjustment if they find the same item they bought from Target for sale at a lower price at certain competitors or even on Target’s own site.

Proof of purchase and proof of the lower price is required for a price adjustment. For in-store purchases, you can request an adjustment in a store on any lane. For online purchases, call Guest Services at 1-800-591-3869.
