Not an Amazon Prime member or a fan of Amazon in general? Fret not because plenty of retailers are offering competing Prime Day sales this week, including Target. Even better: you don’t need to buy any sort of membership in order to participate. Starting today, July 11th, and running until July 13th, Target is hosting its “Target Deal Days” event, offering discounts on Apple products, headphones, and all sorts of tech. As an added plus, the retailer is also offering free, contactless pick-up — no membership is required.

There’s a lot to choose from, but we’ve curated a list of the very best deals available right now at Target. If you do want to check out what other kinds of great deals are going on at Amazon, however, be sure to browse through our comprehensive guide to the best early Prime Day deals.

Earbuds and headphones deals

  • Apple’s noise-canceling AirPods Pro are on sale for $169.99 instead of $249.99, which isn’t an all-time low but close to it. If you own an iPhone, these are the best pair of true wireless earbuds you can buy and come with swappable silicon tips, a MagSafe-ready charging case, and spatial audio support as well. Read our review.
  • Apple’s AirPods Max are on sale for $449 instead of $549, which is about $20 shy of their best price ever. These overear headphones sound fantastic and offer excellent noise cancellation as well as support for Apple’s spatial audio feature. Read our review.

Speaker deals

Ultimate Ears Boom 3

  • $130
  • $150

Few portable speakers have enjoyed the same popularity as the Ultimate Ears Boom 3. With 360-degree sound, a waterproof construction, and easy controls, it’s not surprising this Bluetooth speaker has stuck around for so long.

  • Target is selling the Ultimate Ears Boom 3, our favorite waterproof Bluetooth speaker, for $129.99 ($20 off). The speaker offers good sound quality as well as 15 hours of battery life.
  • Sony’s SRS-XB43 remains a great Bluetooth speaker for outdoor parties, one that delivers powerful sound with deep, resounding bass. For a limited time, it’s on sale at Target for $179.99, a healthy $100 off its usual list price.

Tablet deals

  • 34% off

2011’s Skyward Sword looks and plays better on the Nintendo Switch than it ever did on the Wii. Some other welcome improvements include autosaves, skippable dialogue, and optional tutorials that help to smooth over some of the pacing issues of the original.
