"Target is poised to deliver an unparalleled holiday shopping season. We’ve been building capabilities that put us in a strong starting position, including the right digital tools and a broad assortment of unique, on-trend merchandise. Our value proposition will be unrivaled, with compelling promotions and an exceptional shopping experience online and in our stores," said Brian Cornell, chairman of the board and CEO, Target.

"It’s about delivering on our promise of 'Expect More. Pay Less,' and when we do that, Target is impossible to beat."

To make it even easier for guests, for the first time, Target will offer free shipping on all Target.com orders for the holidays, now through December 20. Additionally, more than 65,000 items are now available for Store Pickup on Target.com and 80 percent of orders are fulfilled within one hour, making it a convenient option for busy shoppers through Christmas Eve.

Target will launch a Wish List app beginning October. Kids can add must-have items to their list, while parents can share the list with friends and family. Target’s Wish List app also offers an augmented reality feature that works with Target’s Kids’ Gifting catalog.

Plus, guests can save 10 percent on their Wish List on one day of their choosing before November 26. The app can be downloaded on Apple and Android mobile and tablet devices or printed on the registry kiosks in Target stores.

Additionally, mobile and tablet apps are re-launching in time for the holidays.

Target’s Cartwheel will offer daily deals for its more than 10 million users, and from November 2 to December 24, Cartwheel will offer 50 percent off a different toy every day. The app will have new features for the holidays, including special deals for top users, personalized recommendations and a select number of popular offers that do not expire.

For the third year, Target is extending the timeframe of its Price Match Policy for the holiday season beyond the typical seven day window. If a guest purchases a qualifying item at Target between November 1 and December 24 and then finds it for less at Target.com, a local competitor’s printed ad or at select online retailers, Target will match that price.
