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...

As seen on TV Petite Rotisserie 90% off I paid $2.99 for this guy. It was the only one left.

2 Packages of Pampers $17.99 marked down 90% off bringing them down too $1.79 a package. I used 2 $2 off coupons and Paid 0 for them. The second coupon had to be adjusted down.

Found one pack of these today, so they're still out there
I know some stores keep filling their shelfs with them. I've grabbed some many off them over the past few months.

All summer stuff was already at 75% clearance at one of my stores! The pickings were pretty slim. The one item I bought (a lunch cooler) rang up at 25% off, but the cashier adjusted the price.

At another store a few miles away, the summer stuff was still full price.

i wish we could mark down our summer merch, it's going to be 25% off till at least the first week n august (going by the sales flyer).. we could really use the space. we're a smaller store so space is always an issue.

im marking down more stuff today, according to one younger customer "our clearance endcap sucks" hahah so ive got some work to do... most likely continue getting rid of the skincare/lotions/that sort of thing.

sharon mass! wave

I scanned some of the Rubbermaid items yesterday and they were 25% off (unmarked). There is a $1 ip available for Rubbermaid , so , I'm hoping they go lower. Wink

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