Target shoppers could get an early start in 2015, with some deals starting 10 days before Black Friday. Customers who spent more than $75 were given 20% off one shopping trip during Dec. 4-13. Target’s best Black Friday Nikon deals were:

  • 50% off the Nikon D3300 bundle, including 24-megapixel camera, full HD video, 18-55 mm and 55-200 mm lenses, a camera bag, and a separately packaged WiFi adapter, at $499.99.

The discount megastore is known for offering incredible deals during the Wal-Mart Black Friday sale, but last year’s sale featured only one Nikon product, the Nikon Coolpix L31. This point-and-shoot was price chopped by 33%, saving customers $23 on the 16-megapixel camera with 5X zoom and 720p video, for a sale price of $46.
