Target's online sales breaks Thanksgiving record...

Business Insider reports that Target had its biggest online shopping day ever on Thanksgiving. "Demand outpaced 2014's record Thanksgiving performance, making it Target's biggest day for online sales yet," the retailer said in a release.

The record-breaking sales online were driven by three items: the Apple iPad, the Apple Watch, and the Wii U gaming console, the company said. Target sold nearly all of its Black Friday doorbusters online beginning Thanksgiving morning.

Consumer Alert: Fake Target Coupon on Facebook

Buyers, beware: this fake Target coupon for 50% off a "storewide purchase" has been confirmed a fake. Apparently this is making the rounds on Facebook, with folks sharing a link from a site called showing this supposed coupon offering half off your Target purchase through 12/31/15.

And if it sounds too good to be true, it is. A rep for Target headquarters has confirmed to Consumerist that there is no such coupon and that this is a fake. You can read all the details here on Consumerist.'s "1 Day Early" Black Friday Deals...

Target is running a promo on their website - for today only - called "1 Day Early" Black Friday Deals. Am I the only person confused by this? "1 Day" before Black Friday should be Thanksgiving, yet today is Wednesday. So is Target just assuming that everyone knows that their Black Friday Sale starts on Thursday instead of Friday? Sigh....

Anyhow, it looks like they do have some good deals on select toys, Fitbits, Apple products and electronics, so check out the selection here if you're interested.

Sale Alert: Faribault for Target Throws & Pillows

Fans of the Faribault Woolen Mill brand, a heads-up: all Faribault for Target throws and pillows are on sale for 30% off online. Meaning: this Camel striped wool throw is now just $56 (regularly $79.99), and pillows are now $35 (down from $49.99).

Sale Alert: All Sleepwear 40% off (Today Only)

Day #3 of Target's "10 Days of Deals" features all sleepwear (for the entire family) at 40% off - both online (with the promo code SLEEP) and in-stores. While this is indeed a great deal, I do have a little warning about one sleepwear brand I've raved about in the past, Nite Nite Munki Munki. The other day in the store I checked out the latest offerings from this brand, and the quality has gone way downhill, at least on their sleep sets. They're not made of the same super-soft, stretchy fabric; the new fabrication is stiff and thin, so buyer beware.

Copycat Candle from the Dollar Aisle...

I just realized that two of my favorite holiday scents from Target are virtually the same, so I wanted to share this tidbit with you all. Method's Foaming Hand Wash in the limited-edition fragrance of "Peppermint Vanilla" is almost an exact dupe for the silver mercury-glass "Fresh Snow" candle, available for just $3 in Target's Dollar Aisle.
