Target store in San Bruno, California /Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Target's Black Friday ad hit deal sites Friday morning, offering a few Thanksgiving Day bargains that could have some people rushing through dinner.


Target's sale will start at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22 -- around the same time as sales by rivals Wal-Mart, Kmart and Sears. The sale runs a full 26 hours, ending at 11 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23.


In a clever move, Target scattered its best door-buster deals across every one of its ad's 32 pages, forcing bargain hunters to peruse the entire thing rather than looking through the first and last pages.


Some of the hotter deals Target is offering in the ad include:

  • Nikon Coolpix L310 14.1-MP digital camera with 21x optical zoom -- $99.99 (regularly $199.99).
  • Westinghouse 50-inch 1080p LCD HDTV -- $349 (regularly $599).

  • Disney Princess Ultimate Fairy Tale Kitchen for $49.99 (regularly $99.99).
  • $4, $6 and $10 DVDs.
  • Sony PlayStation 3 250-GB Uncharted/Infamous Bundle for $199.99 (selling elsewhere for $269).
  • Microsoft Xbox 360 4-GB Disney Kinect Bundle for $199.99 (selling elsewhere for $250).
  • Gateway 15.6-inch laptop with AMD Quad Core, 4-GB DDR3, 500-GB HDD -- $349 (regularly $599).
  • Apex 32-inch LCD HDTV for $147 (regularly $249).
  • 6-foot pre-lit Fraser Fir Tree with clear lights for $30 (regularly $65).

For those shoppers who don't care about electronics, Target will be giving out $10 gift cards on Friday, Nov. 23, from 4 a.m. to noon for every $50 spent on apparel, accessories or home items.
