Thread Details

Last Edited by slayers750 September 15, 2009 at 01:27 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...

I stopped at CVS today to get the Tuesday only deal of Cetaphil Cleanser when I found CeraVe 3 pack of bars on clearance for 4.57 (regular price 18.29). I fortunately still had a 3. off any CeraVe item coupon which worked perfectly so I wound up paying 1.57 for the 3 bars.
I am sorry there is no item number on the receipt and I did not think to check for an item number on the shelf tag.
If you purchase CeraVe or Cetaphil bars of cleanser you know what a bargain this is.
This was in North County San Diego (RB)

What I meant was some of the CeraVe coupons are product specific (like 4. off Healing Ointment) but this coupon read any CeraVe product.
The coupons that were giving the cashier grief were actually the CVS coupons I was using along with my manufacturers coupons.
