Over 50 Stephen King Books Are Buy One, Get One 50% Off This Week

Nearly every novel and short story collection written by King is eligible for the discount, including new releases like You Like It Darker and Holly as well as classics like The Shining and The Stand.


Now is a great time to stock up on books for the summer, as Target is hosting a gigantic buy one, get one 50% off sale. The catalog is filled with more than books, giving you a chance to mix and match video games, puzzles, board games, or pretty much anything else on your wishlist. And if you're a Stephen King fan, the sale is a good opportunity to add to your collection. Just about every book from the legendary horror writer is available in the B1G1 50% off sale.

To cash in on the offer, you'll need to be a Target Circle member. Signing up is entirely free and takes just a few minutes. Once you've become a member, simply add two eligible items to your cart. The lowest-priced item of the two will automatically see the discount.

If you're thinking of reading King's iconic (and lengthy) Dark Tower series, consider picking up The Dark Tower 8-Book Box Set (Paperback), as it's part of the B1G1 event. It's also seeing a $60 price cut, making this an affordable way to check out the entire saga. You'll also find The Dark Tower: Beginnings Omnibus on sale for $70 (down from $100), which is a graphic novel retelling of the popular tale. You can pair those two together and then grab The Gunslinger and Drawing of the Three omnibuses as a second B1G1 50% off deal. There are no limitations here--you can take advantage of this offer as many times as you want this week.
