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.

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. 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...

Picked up 2 Rembrandt Mouthwash / Rinse for free after Qs. Well, I paid .31 sales tax.

$7.89 on clearance for $1.97 less $2 Mfgr Q [coupons.com]

I should have bought a small filler item to bring the total over the coupon amount to avoid the beep, but cashier over-rode.

Your filler item would have to be another Rembrandt product if you are looking to avoid a beep at CVS (unless the MQ is a 992). Overage is pretty rare at CVS most of the time.

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.

While searching for diabetes meters, I've noticed the home testing kit for marijuana is 75% off. (Reg. price is $14.99.) Of course, I just bought one for my neighbor about 2 months ago. I often shop for her because it's a good way to convert my EB's to cash and she likes having items delivered to her door. This surprised me a little, but I don't ask questions when someone is paying me cash! laugh out loud

ETA: This [cvs.com] is the kit.

Victoria's Secret is a lifestyle!

If you like it, I love it!

I know Icy doesn't have an "e", but apparently there is another Icy Niki with the same CC as me!

When the clearance Leggs hosiery info was first posted, I bought about $20 worth of stuff at 75%, since then I have received TWO Crts for Leggs, like you got.

Just goes to show, CVS really does match CRTs to buying history
