Target goes to extreme (or extremely thoughful?) measures to make sure you don’t oversleep the on the biggest shopping day of the year. For the second year in a row, Target is offering free wake-up calls from an all-star lineup including model Carolyn Murphy, country crooner Brad Paisley, and Kermit the Frog amongst other characters. You can also can sign up for a “tuck-in service.” As the tryptophan from the turkey begins to lull you to sleep, Target will call and remind you to have ‘sweet shopping dreams.’ Tuck-in options include a herd of baa-ing sheep, a bedtime story from an oh-so-comforting grandma or a guy so boring that even insomniacs will snooze.
By registering for these calls online at Target.com you can customize the service, choosing who calls you and when- all in time to shop the Target Two-Day Sale on Friday and Saturday. Deep sleeper? Relax, you can have a raucous motorcycle gang, peppy cheerleader or a rousing Mariachi band call. I say, if you can’t remember to wake up at 4AM on Black Friday than you aren’t a real bargain hunter, but Target is trying to make sure that everyone can earn a merit badge in Super Sale Shopping. I got mine at a young age by dutifully trailing my Mom around. Nowadays, I prefer to sleep in, avoid the cross-eyed insanity of Early Bird Specials and shop online. Find free shipping
and gifts for everyone on the list at Target.com.
