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 completely forgot to post in here that some Nexxus products in my store are on clearance. I saw brushes were 50% off (this was on Sunday) and a few products on the shelves as well. I know for a fact Emergencee treatment was marked down 50% off in my store because I bought it. It was $18.49 down to $9.24. Not all Nexxus was marked down, only a few items. Sorry I can't be more specific. It also counted toward this weeks $10 ECB wyb $30. Hope this helps someone! Smilie

I know that sometimes clearance items will count towards the ECB deals. I bought 2 covergirl mascaras today that were 50% off and they did NOT count towards the current deal. Not a big deal since I wanted them anyways. Just FYI.

They are $7/$6/$3 peelies in various colors, found at Wal-Mart awhile ago. Maybe still some around.

Remember those $5 Coty fragrance peelies, also found at Wal-Mart? I used a couple on the clearanced playboy spray($2.50 apiece) this afternoon. Guess what? They both took full $5 off for me and also ate into tax. Not sure if this matters: card was not scanned first and the reduced price was also manually modified.

Personally, I believe the truth lies elsewhere.
i also found those $5 fragrance peelies last year and used them on the gift sets when they were 50% off man did i get a best deal since some were going in the spend $25 get $10 ECB

but i have never found any cosmetic coupons at Walmart* only the Simple Skin Care coupon pads that were $1.99 and $3.99

Regarding the beauty clearance, the blog Nouveau Cheap has a comprehensive list of clearance items (I'm not affiliated with the blog). It seems to vary by region/store. I've visited a handful of stores in San Diego, DC, and MD over the past week; none of them had clearance items tagged, but some of the products scanned as clearance.

I can't seem to find any CVS stores in NYC with the clearance sales going on (I've checked & scanned numerous items, namely those listed here, in Brooklyn and Manhattan stores).

I've been checking all week which leaves me wondering whether the clearance sale has already happened and ended (I was too late) or they just haven't begun here in NYC (I was too early).

Anyone else have better luck? Maybe recommend a store in Manhattan and/or Brooklyn that actually has clearance items. Thanks in advanced!

I am just now starting to see the clearance tagged at stores near me (TX), while other stores don't have the clearance tags but have the clearance prices. I know sometimes Manhattan doesn't get all the deals the rest of us get, so who knows for sure. Just because things are not tagged does not mean anything, though.
