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...

If anyone is crazy for candy corn and assuming your store has any left, I have several $1/2 CVS candy corn CRTs that don't expire until later this week. The candy corn should be half price, so should be cheap with the CRT. I have no idea what the regular price is, but can't imagine it's more than $1/bag. (They are pretty small bags IIRC.)

Regular price was either $1.19 or $1.29 each.

what bags qualify, do you have pics or a general description. I looked all over tonight and didn't see anything large enough that was Hershey's (only Mars, darn it) ... this store was pretty picked over though. I'll try another tomorrow and hopefully the coupon will scan beeplessly :evil laugh:

quoting myself to report the CVS coupon didn't scan this morning - it actually rang as expired! bummer, no free candy for me

Crazy Halloween clearance at one store. All Halloween decorations at 90% off. We ended up with a black tinsel wreath with orange pumpkins on it for $1 for next year. Candy was still 50% on Saturday...hoping that tomorrow will be the magic day for 75% off.

Anyway...for the workout buffs...Six Star AminoMax (I think) powder 9.3ish oz is 75% off from $19.99 to $4.99.

One of the stores nearby put their candy 75% off yesterday. Within mere hours, it was all gone! And I missed it all, which is probably better!

Thanks for posting - at this time of year it seems locally our clearance disappears to make room for holiday merchandise. I take solace in keeping an eye out for things to look for after Christmas LOL

I went to CVS yesterday and saw some Christmas items for 90% off. I grabbed a pre-lit Christmas tree for $5 (originally $49.99), a Merry Brite net lights (for bushes) for $1.5 and a multiple outlet plug for $0.8. They are leftover from previous years and packaging is old. The Merry Brite light and outlet plug works good; however, some of the light on the Christmas tree are not working anymore. There are also extension cord, timer on sale for 90% off. The clearance stuff is in the section of non-sale CVS Christmas items.

Some Burts Bees stuff was 50 and 75% off at my local CVS's yesterday, as well as a TON of shampoos/hair care stuff. CVS lotions were 50% off as well. Not sure if it's a regional thing or not, but i miss the days of the CVS clearance end caps with the little green price stickers. I remember finding some real gems in there, and it seemed like everything was always 75% off or more. Now days you have to walk down every aisle to see the clearance and it's usually only 50% after starting at 25%.
