The holiday season is coming up fast. Thanksgiving is less than 50 days away! To help you prepare, Target is kicking off a massive sale today.

Target Deal Days will run from Sunday, Oct. 10 through Tuesday, Oct. 12. Yes, that’s three whole days of deals on thousands of items, including Beats headphones, TVs, video games, vacuums, kitchen appliances, beauty products and even grocery items. You’ll be able to shop the sale online, on Target’s app and in stores.

You may recognize Target Deal Days as a major sale event — it usually rivals Amazon’s Prime Day. Target actually hosted Deal Days for the first time this year in June, but it’s back for a second round.

“As we approach the holiday season, guests are excited to shop early, and our team is ready to help them prepare so they can celebrate what matters most — time with family and friends,” Christina Hennington, Target’s executive vice president and chief growth officer, said in a press release. “That’s why we’re bringing back Target Deal Days, offering incredible value earlier than ever.”

To make things even better, Target is offering a Holiday Price Match Guarantee kicking off on Oct. 10 as well and lasting through Dec. 24. This way, you can feel confident you’re getting the best price now, and you don’t have to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Here’s how it works: Customers can request a price adjustment on all items purchased at Target during this 75-day time period if the retailer lowers the price after they’ve made their purchase.

Additionally, Target regularly price matches select competitors’ pricing within 14 days of any purchase, any time.

Keep in mind, the retailer also offers free two-day shipping when you spend $35 or more or use your RedCard. If you really can’t wait, you can also purchase your items online and choose same-day delivery on applicable items, in-store pickup or drive-up pickup.
