So if you’re headed to Target today you should find Valentine’s Day items up to 50% Off. Decorative items, craft kits, party supplies, clothing and most other non-perishables should be at 50% Off, and bagged candy will likely be at 30% Off. You will likely have to scan if you are not sure of some things- since clearance stickers will be few and far between.


Food items are sometimes slower to clearance- but Kelley found the Pillsbury items like baking mixes and frostings already at 50% Off. While the holiday area is typically where you will find most items- be sure and check near the regular aisles of the store too. Kelley found a whole endcap of Nestle Tollhouse Valentine Morsels actually stickered 50% Off down to $1.74. If you have the Valentopia store booklet that was handed out in some stores over the last couple of weeks- there is a $1/3 Nestle Baking Items TQ in there and there is also a couple of MQs out there- a $1/2 Nestle Toll House Morsels 10 oz+ 2-3-13 RP x5/3 and a .50/2 Nestle Toll House Morsels.


Keep an eye out for other food and snack items on clearance like these Lay’s Chips Multipack 20 ct Snack Bags that Kelley found at 50% Off today in the Valentine area. Honestly they are really hard to tell that they are Valentine- well at least I think so – so maybe that will slow them down in disappearing. The only indication is the pink outline of a heart around all the different snacks on the front of the bag They were $3.49 for her down from $6.99.


HOME & HOUSEWARES: Be sure and check in home and housewares for select items to be 50% Off too. These items may not make it back to the holiday clearance section and may still be sitting in the Home area. You may be able to find NordicWare and other Valentine baking wares at 50% Off. Again there will likely no stickers and maybe not even signs, so be sure and scan. Sometimes it is strange what goes clearance and want doesn’t so the scanner can be your best friend. For example Kelley found everything above scanning at 50% Off EXCEPT the heart Pancake pan – so scan to be sure.

dollar-spotDOLLAR SPOT: Be sure and take a good look in the Dollar Spot too- as you should find all purple dot items down to 50% Off today. Many of the purple dot items will be obviously Valentine’s but look for other non-Valentine items too that will make for great Easter Basket & Stocking stuffers in the future. For example Kelley found Star Wars Puzzles that were Purple Dot and sure enough they are ringing 50% Off too and there is nothing Valentine’s about them.

THE NEXT DROP?: Typically everything drops down a bigger percent off in around 3-4 days, but some stores take longer than others and the good stuff tends to go quick – especially food items. If you are going Valentine clearance hunting today – let me know if you found anything good!

    I went to my store this morning and they hadn’t even begun to mark anything down. I really wanted the Lay’s variety pack and some m n ms, but they were both still full price. Hopefully, later this afternoon, they will be marked down.

  2. Casey says:

    I went to Target in Arnold, MO, they were 50 percent off but the one in South County was not 50 percent, and I was told they would NOT be going to 50 percent until Sunday or Monday, and it would only be 30 percen. Hmm….

  3. Jane says:

    There was nothing on sale at my Target…in fact almost all the Valentine’s stuff had been cleared from the shelves??? Only some of the candy had been moved to one location :(

  4. Carrie Englund says:

    I went to the Sioux Falls Store and they had a huge team organizing the Valentines stuff but said not of it was going to be marked down today. They just said for some reason the system wasn’t putting it on sale yet. But I did find tons of other items in household like duvet covers and heated mattress covers at 70% off.

  5. kara says:

    I am surprised to see the Carter’s stuff on clearance. Christmas Carter’s stuff didn’t follow the typical holiday markdown.

  6. Denise says:

    Just got back from my Target, no Valentine clearance yet.

  7. Amber H says:

    Went to my Target this morning and got $28worth of stuff for $7.74. All of the Valentine’s stuff, except some bagged candy (M&Ms and truffles) was already marked at 50% off. I got 2 boxes of 28ct Mini Quaker Granola Bars for $1.49 each, using the Target and Manufacturer coupons for $1/2. Also got Market Pantry fruit snacks (large box) for $1.99. In the household section, I found the Glade Expressions Mist Starters marked down to $2.54 and used (2) $2 off coupons, plus (1) $1 off Target coupon. On a previous trip I had gotten the Glad Expressions Oil Diffuser for $0.99 (used 1 $4 off manufactere coupon and $1 off Target coupon).

  8. Amy says:

    Just a Hint: Don’t forget those upcoming weddings! You can put quite a nice gift together of housewares and/or Valentine’s stuff (blanket, picture frames,LOVE stuff, etc.).

  9. Kristi says:

    This is not related but i was wondering can you use both $3/1 Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips and $3.00 off Sally Hansen Special Effects Salon Effects, Crackle, Magnetic, Lustre Shine or Gem Crush in the same transaction?

  10. Casey says:

    Great idea, Amy!

  11. Kerry says:

    Hey Kristi- not sure what you mean? If you are buying one special effect product and 1 salon effect product for a total of 2 products then yes you can use both of those coupons. let me know if I am not understanding your question.

  12. Ann says:

    Just moved to TX via the army. Geez…the target in my area was slim pickens…it looked like what 90% off in WA would be. Dollar section had no signage but were indeed ringing up 50% off. Had to dig but found some treasures for the kiddos easter baskets. 5 pack hot wheels $2.49. Hello Kitty squinkies $0.99. Other 70% clearance around the store…Twin size comforters $5.98…Picture frames, small wall clocks/wall decor also 70% off. Happy shopping :)

  13. Jen says:

    I bought the frito lays mutipack for $3.49. My store also had peelie coupons on some for $2 off when you buy 2, so you actually got 2 of these for $4.98 GREAT DEAL.

  14. Kristi says:

    If you buy two salon effect product can you use both coupon?

  15. amyr says:

    The Lego Friends bags were $1.99 at my store in FL instead of $3.99, but the Lego Chima bags were not marked down. Both were in the Valentine’s Day section. Also, My Little Pony figures were 50% off. My daughter’s Easter basket is done, but they didn’t have much for my son.

  16. LisaM says:

    Where in Fl are you?

  17. courtney says:

    My target for once had a lot. I got the classic snack mix 3.99 … And a bunch of disney princess theme for 1/2 off. My daughter wants a princess bday party so it was perfect. Also the disney princess little kingdom dolls that r in lanes r half off. Got them for her cake toppers.

  18. Jen says:

    Not much at the Target store in Morgantown, WV. But I was able to get some candy, a heart shaped baking pan, and some stuff animals at 50% off. A lot of regular kitchen items were at 50% off too, like rugs and towels.

  19. Rosemary says:

    Target in Bolingbrook, IL has lots of stuff still. I got the Lays chips. They’re not marked, but ring up half price. Watch the expiration date though if you plan to stock up. They’re dated March 13. I had purchased 4 bags without checking the date, and now I realize we could never eat them at fast.
    Plenty of decor, picture frames, baking pans, sprinkles, a cute apron, Whitmans sampler and Russel Stover sampler hearts for $5. Cute striped melamine dishes for $1 each. Got a bunch of these for year round use. They’re dishwasher safe.

  20. Crystal aka Caitlynsmommy says:

    I was able to score two of the Kelly Barbies in the V day section and use the 3.00 off 2 coupon so they were 1.50 (yeah for Easter basket!0

  21. April G says:

    My Target (I’m in Oregon) also did not have V-day on clearance. I asked an employee, who said they would not be marking it down today. 0_0 I was shocked! Several other women were there with me (we cornered the first employee we saw together) and we all put everything back. I drove to a different Target where the Valentine’s Day was all marked down to 50%. What is T thinking? I guess my store wants a bunch of valentines sitting on the shelves this weekend.

  22. Marcia says:

    Just back from Target and was quite surprised to see none of the Valentine merchandise marked down yet. I don’t remember ever this being the case the day after at Target. Will stop back in tomorrow and check.

  23. Lindsay says:

    Just went to my target and stocked up on fruit snacks and the chips variety packs =) They were marked for 30% but were actually marked down 50%. Scan them and don’t believe signs! Love Target!

  24. Kelly says:

    Seems like a lot of people reporting that the Valentine items were not scanning at sale price. Same happened at my store but the cashiers were manually entering 50% off, even the bagged candy which is usually 30%. Maybe there was a system glitch or something!

  25. Nancy says:

    Went into the Uniontown, PA store early this morning and nothing was coming up 50%off, my helpful clerk got a manager who told her to mark it 50 since Valentine’s Day was over…..went to the Morgantown, WV store and the smart mouthed young man cashier wouldn’t mark anything down to 50….left everything on the belt!

  26. Brandy says:

    Hmmm, wonder if the delay in marking down to 50% will cause more items than usual to still be around at 70% and 90%. I didn’t make it out until 10ish and by then my store looked picked over. It had signage and things rang up as expected. I picked up snack bags of kettle popcorn and goldfish for the kids school. I found a cute rose craft kit that I’ll let the kids use for mother’s day for the grandparents-we just had teacher appreciation but it could work for that too (I’ll pick up another set for next year if I can). Dollar spot was signed at my store- I purchased goodie bags for next year, a strawberry seed kit and poppy seed kit. I did manage to find a box of the mp valentine gummies -someone had hidden them behind a box of regular mp gummies so I bought them and a box of the roll ups and used the $1 off 2 mp coupon. I found the Barbie mermaid, La La Loopsy big doll, star wars figures and nerf guns stickered at 70% too! Items that didn’t ring up 50% of my store included the valentine books and movies … red shirt team already has 1/2 isle and end cap of Easter set. Wonder if there will be hidden markdowns like last time?

  27. Brandette W. says:

    I just got back from my Target here in Indianapolis, IN. They had some stuff left, all marked at 50% off, even candy. I was able to get (3) Pillsbury frosting with sprinkles, (3) heart sprinkles bottles, (2) bags of M&M’s.

    They still had baking pans, baking mixes, candy, stuffed animals, party supplies. That was about all that was left at mine.I was going for the items I found, so it was successful for me.

  28. Tiffany says:

    I am in Maryland and Target had little to sell too but I was able to find my son some Valentine’s Day Hot Wheel package for 2.50. This could be a great stocking stuffers even though it had Valentine’s Day on the package.

  29. tallymomma says:

    Not valentines related but while on my way there I noticed the Target cooking supplies Bodega was 70% off and the bulk items were starting at 15-30% off.

  30. Tanique says:

    Ann what part of Tx are you located in? In most areas, items do clear
    out fast depending on your location. Welcome to Tx!

  31. seana says:

    I got the Lays chips deal. The Valentine’s area was a bit skimpy. I got 3 bags of the Lays and told the nice worker that was organizing the shelves that the chips were only $3.50. She went and got the last two bags for her kids. It was nice letting someone else in on the deal :) I gave one of my bags to a neighbor that has 2 little boys as a nice gesture :) I was able to score a Starbucks 2 coffee mug set with hot chocolate. Giving that to my son’s girlfriend (we didn’t see them before V Day so they will never know ;0

  32. Julianne says:

    I found some awesome deals at the Moorhead MN Target. They had the Lays Chips 50% off and lots of them left not marked and not with valentines. There was a lot of candy ringing up at 50%. None of the Dollar section was labeled and was ringing in at 70% with lots to choose from. Also found gift bags in the regular isle on sale with many to chose from. Also check out the section of random food, kitchen, and misc by the valentines stuff in the back. Much of that is ringing up on sale. Found a cute napkin holder for a 1.50, wine opener for $4 and measuring untinsels for 2.50. I so impressed and people werent really realizing how much stuff was on sale:)

  33. jamie says:

    Alot of people are still celebrating Valentines Day this weekend since it was on a weekday, and the stores aren’t going to mark down their merchandise until Sunday or Monday. Then their are other stores that have cleared their merchandise out to make room for Easter and St Pat’s stuff.

  34. Jamia says:

    At my store’s dollar spot, purple dot clearance was marked at 50% off, but rang up at 70% off!

  35. TH says:

    Non food items are 70% off in Lafayette, La southside.Candy 50%off.

  36. Billie Jo says:

    At the Libbie ave Richmond, va target, the signs said 50, but everything price checked 70! Even the chips! They were only $2! Yay!
