Target Reveals Some Black Friday Sale Items Via Facebook Game

Really, Target? Most of us are still shaking off the effects of leftover Halloween candy, and you’re already promoting Black Friday?

Examiner.com reported that the retail giant teased 20 of its Black Friday sale items on its Facebook page Saturday, just under two weeks shy of the Nov. 23 monster shopping day.

Target began revealing its Black Friday plans via the Target Black Friday Facebook application, a game that encourages users of the social network to guess which of two products will be on sale that day. Correct guesses yield the sale price for those items, while those who guess wrong can try again.

According to Examiner.com, Target’s Black Friday sale items include a 50-inch Westinghouse LCD TV for $349, suede boots for $25, DVDs for $1, and a Playstation 3 bundle pack for $199.
