Along with being the spookiest month of the year, October is also National Book Month. To celebrate, Target is offering a buy two, get one free deal on books now through Oct. 12.

But wait — there’s more! If books aren’t your thing (even during their very own month), the deal also includes movies to make sure you’ll have fun this fall regardless of how you like your entertainment!

The deal is online only, but you can pick up your order in-store for free if the book or movie you want is also sold in stores. Otherwise, you’ll get free shipping on orders totaling $35 or more.

The deal is also mix-and-match, so you can buy two books and get a movie for for free, three movies or books for the price of two, two movies and a free book, etc. The lowest-priced item will be the one you get for free.

Not all books and movies are included in the deal, so make sure the titles you want are indeed part of the discount.

The deal does include, however, both new movies like the latest Spider-Man film, “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” and classics like “Hocus Pocus.” Take a look at some other books and films included in the deal:

‘Aladdin’ (Live Action)

Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake was just released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Sept. 10. It is $24.99 for a Blu-Ray + DVD + digital combo at Target, and then you just have to purchase one more book or movie and you’ll get one for free.


‘You’re My Little Pumpkin Pie’

This “You’re My Little Pumpkin Pie” book is perfect for autumn and only costs $5.99. It is for ages 4-8.


‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’ (Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital)

The “The Secret Life of Pets 2” Blu-Ray + DVD + digital combo is $26.99. The animated film features the voices of Kevin Hart, Harrison Ford and more.


Will you be ordering some books or movies from Target before this deal ends Oct. 12?
