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 know it's over a month old, but has anyone had any luck finding clearance Ensure lately? My g'ma just found out today that she needs to drink it & she was just about in tears because she can't afford it. I told her not to worry, I'd find it for her (even if I have to pay full price & fib about it).

Thanks.
Keep looking! I found some Ensure 4 packs on clearance today. There was a shelf tag for one, showed it reduced to $1.12; another one (chocolate) on the bottom shelf had no clearance tag but scanned at $1.62. Sorry I didn't note specifics.

If you're going to be passing through MD, I'll PM you the store location. laugh out loud

On to clearance deals. I found the poster alphabet stickers for 50% off today and the poster boards (the flimsy ones, not the foam) for 50% at one of my stores. I've been eyeing those since they've been at 25% for a couple of weeks now. These are great for making your garage sale signs.
These were 75% off at my store! I need new garage sale signs so may have to do this!

Various types of labels were 75% at my stores. So rare that I find the stuff everyone else mentions being on clearance. Felt like I'd hit the jackpot today. Smilie

Whole bunch of items on the stationary/printer ink/school supplies aisle on 75% clearance at my store in TX. I saw some poster board, the Crayola items (including two different big boxes of crayons!), some planners and journals, notepads, neon-colored cardstock paper, pens, some bubble mailers, tape and other adhesives. Oh, and dumb stickers Big Grin. I saw singles in black and all three colors of HP 02 printer ink for 3.44! I wish I had a printer that used those cartridges...I saw them later at Wal-Mart for nearly $11. Best of all, right around the corner the smaller Ritter Sport bars were marked down to around a dollar.

Be careful with the bubble/photo mailers. I picked up a photo mailer I thought matched the $0.69c tag, but it rang up $3.29. I didn't notice until I got in the car so we'll see if it was me or CVS tomorrow...

I got three packs of PenMate (believe that's the brand) 10ct Write Bros. red pens for $0.54/ea. The blue and black Write Bros. pens are not on clearance, unfortunately. I also picked up a 6ct package of Scotch clear gel adhesive strips that had been marked down to $0.99. Best of all, I got the last pack out of two that had a $1 off peelie on it! It beeped at the register; the clerk shrugged and adjusted the coupon amount to $0.99. YMMV, the other package left did not have a peelie on it.

Facepalm I keep forgetting to look for this. I knew when someone said they spotted "single color" that it was that number... which is what we use in our ink guzzler. When I finally checked one store...NOTHING Frown

Thanks, I saw the Pipsqueaks but they were only 50% off at the store that I went to. I'll have to check out some other stores.
