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...

Went to CVS early this morning to see if I could find the Skintimate shaving cream with the yellow cap that produces the $4 up. Got lucky to find 2 on a display with $1.50 off peelies. They were located on the top shelf along with 3 packs of Gillette Profusion Bonus packs. These packs scanned at $2.82. They say Gillette Fusion Proglide up to a $11 value plus bonus skin care samples. They come with a razor, 2 cartridges, 1 shave gel 2.5 oz 1 thermal cleanser, 0.7 oz and 1 conditioning balm 0.5 oz.
Were these bonus packs actually IN the display? I ask because I have yet to find any and none of my stores have the displays out.

I highly doubt that a Gillette item (P&G) would be part of a Skintimate (Schick/Enegizer) displayWink

Sorry. Proglide bonus packs were next to the Schick display, they were not part of the Schick display.

My local CVS in Santa Clara, CA had all of the Glad food storage products on clearance. You can print a $1/1 coupon from http://www.glad.com/offers/ to lower the cost.

Ever have one of those moments where what's in your head does not come out? Well, in my head, I had erased the Excel & the Vibrance because I've depleted the inventory on the Excel and Vibrance is nowhere to be found around here. LMAO By erasing it from my head, I forgot to type that I already knew about those.

I was hoping some of the Fusions were on clearance and I had somehow missed those.


Thanks for answering!!
Quoting myself because you never know with CVS. Despite no Vibrance for almost 2 weeks, 4 showed up today and they counted towards the deal.

Yes, you never know with CVS. Today I went to a store and found 9 of the clearance Softsoap tangerine and the Softsoap bodywash. I swear a few days ago, there wasn't a single one. I very happily took them.
Also found the Conair curling irons and the Extreme rollers on clearance, all untagged. I told the cashiers and they were over the moon to get in on the deal.
