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...

cvs in sharon mass still has a lot of cranberry sauce for .42 and some more campbells healthy stuff soup. today i marked down some olay facial cleanser and make-up remover, as well as quite a bit of the cvs brand skineffects, the average price of the skineffects facial stuff is $5. i found a bunch of essence of beauty holiday lotions (buttercreme, gingerbread and some berry scent) which should be $2 and also some EOB shower gel. oh and some weird EOB shower poof things.

we take any expired cvs coupons too... Smilie it doesnt matter what the date it.
like if you have the $1 off 3 cvs brand candies, there are some cvs brand malt balls (yuck) and wax bottles.

thanks!

Picked up Frankie the Fish (gimmie back that filet-o-fish, gimmie that fish) for $1.99. DS has wanted it ever since he saw it. I helped the cashiers get them out of the store so they don't have to hear that annoying song anymore. Also got Venus Breeze 8ct cartridges for $5.80, 75% off.

The Venus could be applied towards the Olay rebate: http://www.olay.com/PublishingIma...ay.com.pdf The rebate just says Venus , so , I would think the cartridges would be included.

It is unlikely that you will get more by giving less.

Newborn Swaddlers sensitive are the only ones I've been able to find @ $2.99 each. I started seeing them about 4 weeks ago. I was on vacation went shopping today and still found 6 bags @ one location. I bought them all...
Found one pack of these today, so they're still out there

Spotted today at CVS at Congress and Oltorf, Austin Tx:

Huggies Blue Jean Diapers, Size 4 $5.99 (1/2 off?)
Acne Sport Wipes $2.74 (75% off, I think)

Note that this is a very small store, I really think these were on clearance just because there isn't enough space for them. I saw other boxes of the Acne Sport Wipes in a full display for $10.99, and these are both brand new products.

I saw the olay total effects body wash on clearance for 2.49 at the Natick Mall location. And dove shampoo damage hair shampoo for 1.14 on the comm ave location in Boston. I find that a lot of stores have similar items on clearance however some stores just have random stuff like the things i just mentioned. Has anyone else seen these items on clearance?

I saw tons of candy on clearance for 75% but I didn't look closely. These were all the no-returns or exchanges kind where they mark the UPC and put on the end caps. I bought -

Huggies Goodnites Boxers L-XL $3.14 75% off (I thought these were cleared out a long time ago, but they still had some left since the Goodnites are now underwear)
Baby Orajel Day and Night Tooth reliever $1.87 75% off - $1 mfg cpn = $0.87

I saw saw Nuby 0-6 M pacifiers, snack cups (but did not say BPA free), more baby Orajel, Aquaphor Baby Shampoo $1.87?, J&J Baby Oil, and random meds that I didn't pay attention to. The ones I scanned the prices came up automatically at 75% off. I wonder if they are clearanced automatically at other stores?

I also saw a lot of H&B items (particularly face items) for 50% off... a lot of brands - Olay, Neutrogena, Garnier etc. They were more expensive items though - like originally $19.99, now $9.99 for example. These items were in the regular aisles.

I saw some Tide Total Care and All & Mighty for $4 today. It's still a bit high for me, hoping they would go down some more.
