Thread Details

Last Edited by slayers750 September 15, 2009 at 12:27 PM
Please no OT.

This will not cover the weekly deals. See the individual threads for each week.

Different types of clearance:

1. The kind with official CVS tags on the shelves. These are usually found in many stores.
2. The kind on an endcap or special table and often have green stickers on them. These are usually specific to that store. Sometimes the discontinued items will show up at other stores with these stickers, too.

Post your finds, with as much info as possible including where you found them (on the shelf or in another place in the store). If you know of any coupons to use on the clearance items, post those too.

Different types of clearance:
1. The kind with official CVS tags on the shelves. These are usually found in many stores. Here's great detail from CVS-er here: (Please rep, this is good info to have!)

CVS has 5 stages that their clearance products go through. Four of these stages are marked by 4 seperate tags, which are the yellow tags that say CLEARANCE on them. A store may hit all 5 stages, or skip ahead to any of the further stages at any time. This decision is usually up to the store manager. Also, sometimes the item may skip ahead stages (aka get marked down further) but the staff hasn't had a chance to put out the tag reflecting the latest stage yet. (This happens at my store a lot, because we are very busy & understaffed.) The 5 stages are:

STAGE 1 - yellow tag that simply reads "CLEARANCE" (item is still full price, the tag is just alerting you that the item is being discontinued. For you guys, its an alert to keep an eye on this item as it reaches the further markdown stages)
STAGE 2 - yellow tag that reads "CLEARANCE 25% OFF - YOU PAY $X.XX" (item is now 25% off original price)
STAGE 3 - yellow tag that reads "CLEARANCE 50% OFF - YOU PAY $X.XX" (item is now 50% off original price)
STAGE 4 - yellow tag that reads "CLEARANCE 75% OFF - YOU PAY $X.XX" (item is now 75% off original price
STAGE 5 - items removed from shelf and placed in the designated general clearance area (item is now 90% off original price)[/

2. The kind on an endcap or special table and often have green stickers on them. These are usually specific to that store. Sometimes the discontinued items will show up at other stores with these stickers, too.
Post your finds, with as much info as possible including where you found them (on the shelf or in another place in the store). If you know of any coupons to use on the clearance items, post those too.


If we keep this Wiki updated we'll all save even more money!

From now on, when posting a Clearance deal here in the Wiki, please include as much of the following information as possible: Date posted, Item name, Original price, Clearance Price, % clearance, coupon(s) you used, Location of Store, quantity left.



[YMMV , to the MAX] The deals varies GREATLY from 1 location to another...

I bought 10 bags of miracle grow for mym om last week at 75% off

I went in a few days later the signs were still up so I was gonna get the last 7 bags

the scanner was down and the lady scanned them for me ....they rang up full price.....I was like the sign says....shes like well we can't fix that they are full price now and she went and took the signs down

What is the policy on them honoring the signs? is there anything?

A phone call to the store manager should get this taken care of; if not, then a call to CVS Customer Service; if not that, then call and complain to the Consumer Protection office at the State's Attorney/Attorney General office. Store has to honor posted price by law.

I am not sure that is true in all states, but maybe it is where you are. Prices are wrong all the time at the stores here. If someone has found a 'price guarantee' law in Texas, please let me know.

I know recently I was talking to a store manager about the $2 expiration date 'guarantee', and she said she was SO glad we didn't have that rule here. Smilie

Not always. I worked in retail for 5 years, and here the law said that once the store was notified of the incorrect price, it had to be fixed immediately. If it was not changed, then the store had to honor it.

Triple action Diaper rash cream 16oz was $3 today (bought 4 of them). It was like $7 something on the shelf but never got any, now in clearance endcap. Normally over $30! They kept the 8oz at $20.

Crest Pro Health Enamel Shield 6 oz was 25% off at my store. It wasn't tagged, but I had grabbed it as a filler (had a free q) and discovered at the scanner that
A. I had grabbed the wrong size (I had wanted the 4 oz tube which was 3.89, since my q max was 3.99) and
B. this one was only 3.29 and I needed another filler since my filler was too cheap! LMAO

Shelf price was 4.39; clearance price is 3.29.

Still a terrible toothpaste price, but if you need a filler for the right deal, it just might help. And keep an eye on it...you never know if it'll go down some more.

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.
