As a shopping editor with several trips planned over the next few months, including day trips, long weekends away with friends, and a holiday vacation to Costa Rica with family, I’ve been searching for travel essentials to make my trips smoother and more comfortable. I also spend hours each week browsing Target for a living, and have been particularly excited about its huge fall sale event, Circle Week. The seven-day rival to Amazon’s October Prime Day already kicked off on October 1, offering thousands of discounted items — including many items I’ve been eyeing.

If you haven’t already started shopping Target Circle Week, here’s what you need to know. Make sure you’re logged into your Target Circle account — if you’re not a member, you can sign up for the free loyalty program in just minutes. Then, you can save on items like hiking shoes, luggage sets, and cozy sweaters like this ultra-soft style that’s just $18. I’m also snagging these compression packing cubes that helped one shopper to “travel for three days with a backpack.” To get me through my upcoming mini and week-long vacations, here are even more of my top clothing, luggage, and travel accessory picks from Target, up to 61% off through October 7.
Best Target Circle Week Shoe Deals
Unless you plan to sit on a beach all day, supportive shoes are one of the most important travel items to consider. For my small-town overnights where I want to look put-together without sacrificing comfort, I’m grabbing these Chelsea Boots for 30 percent off. They come with a memory foam insole and easily pull on and off. I’m also going to update my sneakers for Costa Rica with this pair from Reebok that are up to 40 percent off and designed with a foam midsole, flexible outsole, and breathable mesh upper to keep my feet cool.

I’m on the hunt for a mix of stylish clothes and loungewear, and Target’s deals include both of the above. To start, I’m eyeing these Barrel Leg pants that end just above the ankle (although for someone on the shorter side like my 5-foot self, will hit right at the ankle). They have a relaxed fit so I won’t feel constricted, and a touch of stretch for even more comfort. Versatile cardigans like this Universal Thread two-way zip-up are also 30 percent off, which will keep me warm before jacket weather starts. This style is “soft, not itchy,” according to one shopper. And since the weather has been unpredictable (read: very wet) lately, this packable raincoat is a must thanks to its cinching features to keep me dry. One reviewer brought it “for a trip to Alaska” and shared that the waterproofing was “perfect.”

Best Target Circle Week Weekender Bag Deals
For my weekend away traveling to a friend’s upcoming wedding, I’m eyeing a new duffel bag to help me stay organized, like this drop-bottom style. I love that it can keep my shoes separate from my clothes so everything stays neat, and it’s from a brand actively working to clean up plastic from the ocean. Plus, it has a trolly sleeve so I can slip it over my luggage for my longer vacation. If you want a weekender bag that could double as an oversized tote, this puff style is made with soft materials that keep you comfortable while carrying it, and it has interior and exterior pockets for storing smaller items.

For my planned Costa Rica vacation with my family of five, I’m looking for convenience over everything, which is why I’m grabbing this three-piece connectable hardside set while it’s up to 61 percent off. It will make wheeling my kids’ luggage a breeze, and it’s also on sale in the single piece for up to 28 percent off. Even more individual suitcases are marked down, like this hardside spinner available in bright colors, which means it’s easy to spot your luggage on the belt.

Best Target Circle Week Backpack and Handbag Deals
My beaten up backpack has seen better days, so I’m searching for a new personal item for when I fly. This spacious travel backpack is a can’t-miss item that will let me store my computer, tablet, book, chargers, and other essentials. And since I’ll be spending many days being active during my upcoming travel plans, I need minimalist handbag accessories like this belt bag-crossbody bag hybrid with two zip compartments to keep me hands-free. One shopper said it has “tons of space without being bulky.” If you do need a travel bag that holds more, this tote is 30 percent off, water-resistant, and has RFID-blocking features.
