Black Friday May Be Over, But The Deals Don't Stop
Posted on November 30th @ 1:00 pm ET in Site News

Now that Black Friday & Cyber Monday are over, you may be thinking that the best deals are over as well. But GottaDEAL is open all year, 365/24/7 and we expect the flood of great online deals and sales to continue at a very high level over the next few weeks.

We post hundreds of deals each week on our GottaDEAL home page, and we have thousands of coupons and discounts for your favorite retailers. Sign up for our popular Instant Deal Alerts to get e-mails when we find Black Friday-level deals during rest of the year.

Keep following us on Twitter and make sure you've liked our Facebook page to keep in touch during the rest of the year and learn about new deals. You can also sign up for our Black Friday mailing list and we'll send you an e-mail when we get going again in the fall.

In closing, thank you for making our 18th year covering Black Friday here on GottaDEAL another big success. This has been another very different year with the greatly expanded Black Friday sales, multiple ads for several stores and many ads being released later than usual.

We hope you found the site useful and we also hope you'll stick around all year long. We'll be posting any relevant news updates and rumors over the next 9 months, and we'll see everyone again in September as we resume our full Black Friday coverage for our 19th year. See today's deals!

Target Will Not Open on Thanksgiving Again
Posted on November 22nd @ 5:16 pm ET in Industry News

Target CEO Brian Cornell sent a note to employees today stating that Target has no plans to ever be open on Thanksgiving Day again. Target closed stores on Thanksgiving Day last year due to the pandemic and will be closed again this year after being open on Thanksgiving for the last decade.

While other major retailers were closed last year and will be again this year, Target is the first to make the change permanent. As the actual day of Black Friday has become less important due to sales lasting all month long, there is really no reason for most stores to be open on Thanksgiving.
