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 think you might be able to get a manual print only if they're incorrectly tagged for the deal, which does happen occasionally.

I have a question tho since you bought the clearanced skincare, did you use the BOGO peelie, and how much did it deduct ? If it Auto D's I would think it would make both free ..
Did not auto. They gave me the full price off of the item which was $19.99. Both ended being free. nod

Quote from kimtex View Post :
I use fillers all the time at Walgreens. Only reason I can think of to use one at CVS is if your coupon $$ amount is more than your items $$ amount or to make use of an ECB when that $$ amount is more than your items $$ total. Am I missing something?
No, I don't think you're missing anything. Since the wording on ECB's is "up to $X.00 value" you would think no filler would be needed, but at some stores they don't seem able to grasp that the ECB can be used for less than the stated amount.

There are some CVS skincare on clearance 75% off. I got a $4/$10 q CVS skincare from the red machine. The CVS advanced deep set wrinkle therapy and skin treatment oil is $4.07 and the deep action refill pads are $1.32. Buy 2 CVS stuff at $4.07 and buy 2 CVS stuff at $1.32 minus the $4/$10 q for a total of $6.78.

Much of this stuff is counting for the $4 wyb $12 CVS brand. I got CVS versions of Loreal, and Neutrogena and it counted, but the CVS version of RoC did not.

Gain Fabric Softener is at 50%. Not sure if there are any coupons out there, but if they go to 75% could be worth just buying on its own. I took a pic of the UPC so you can print it to scan at the red machine to check your store's status.

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.
