The daily deals are acting a bit funky today- but when you add items to your cart everything works out and all discounts are reflected in the end. For example the long sleeve tops say $12 on the screen but come up as $8 when you add them to your cart.
Most Items are available in a wide range of colors too. So for example if you bought 3 Mossimo Men’s Crew-Neck Tees (comes in assorted colors) they will be $6 each x 3 = $18 – 20% = $14.40, or like getting for $4.80 each. But you can mix and match too- so if you pick any 3 items from the daily deals you will still get 20% Off your order.

Here’s what has been spotted by myself and others on clearance this week along with some coupon matchups. Please remember- clearance can vary greatly from store to store- there is no guarantee you will find the same or for the same discount. But I try & list specific varieties, prices & other details when I can, since not everything gets stickered and sometimes it’s worth a quick scan to check.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
Lots of clearance Sun care products this week at 30% off including Hawaiian Tropic products as low as $5.98 and Banana Boat, both adults and kids, as low as $5.10. Lots of the Hawaiian Tropic had $1/1 hangtags but there is also a printable…$1/1 Any Hawaiian Tropic Product 4 oz+ excl Lip Balm. Also new-to-me were Crest ProHealth Oral Rinse down to $2.11 and Crest 3D Whitening Rinse down to $2.54. The small Nicorette Gum 20 ct packs were spotted at 30% off ($8.50) and there is a $1/1 Nicorette Gum 20 ct.
There is still lots of clearance hair color floating around in select shades – but one thing I noticed new is the 2 ct Value Packs of L’Oreal that many of you have probably noticed on an endcap for quite some time are starting to be clearanced out. Only 15% Off so far for me- but something to watch for a bigger discount on since we have a $3/1 L’Oreal Preference 1-8-12 RP x3/4/12.
I cracked up at this picture that Kelley sent me from her store that she took yesterday. I have NEVER, EVER seen a clearance endcap that neat & organized before! Anyway- despite the 15% Off signage- she found a ton of Ajax with Bleach Alternative Ruby Red Grapefruit dish liquid for 50% Off down to .98 cents. This product would qualify for the $5 MIR wyb $10 worth of Colgate-Palmolive Products 1-29-12 SS x3/15.
Other clearance items in household for 15% – 30% off… Cascade Action Pacs 20 ct bags and 60 ct tubs, Cascade Rinse Aid & Liquid Dishwasher Detergent, Febreze Fabric Refresher, Finish Powerball Tabs and Jet-Dry, Tide Detergent 95 oz Powder & Renuzit Adjustables. Here’a few Qs that may come in handy…

-B1G1 FREE Air Effects/Fabric Refresher 1-29 PG x2/29
-.75/1 Finish Powerball Tabs or Gelpacs 1-22 SS x2/29

-$1/6 Renuzit Adjustables or (1) 2 or 3 pk 1-22 RP x3/4
There were also Renuzit Crystal Elements on clearance- but even though only 15% Off- you still have a little time for the try me FREE rebate. The offer is for the amount of purchase up to $2.99 for the 9 oz refill or up to $5 for the 18 oz refill. Purchase needs to be made by 2/28/12 so you’ll have to act soon. You will need to submit the rebate form available to print HERE, along with the original register receipt by 3/31/12 and there is a limit of one offer per name/household/address.
CLOTHING & SHOES
This week there are some new clearance finds to report in shoes and clothing. More & more shoes seem to be getting clearanced at Target these days. Kelley had just a ton of them and I had quite a bit too.
There was a variety too including mens, womens and kids from 30 to 50% off. Women’s Target Boots were 30% off down to $24.48 and both Converse and Exhilaration sneakers were 50% off with Kids Converse as low as $12.98 and the others $19.48.
There were a few 70% Off surprises mixed in on select Merona Ladies Heels as low as $7.48. Other shoe brands reported on clearance were Swiss Gear, Champion, and Mossimo.
In the men’s department, Ruth found Hanes crew neck sweatshirts at 30% off marked down to $5.24 and thermal underwear by Merona and Jerzee, also 30% off. Merona woven boxers down to $4.18, flannel pjs by Merona at 50% off for $9.98. Also lots of Tees 70% off as low as $2.98.
Be sure & scope out the regular clothing & accessories for Valentine’s day things at 50% Off too. If there is not enough room in the Valentine clearance section, everything may not get moved to that one area. I found some cute Valentine things for 50% off including pajama bottoms and tee shirts, and fuzzy socks & slippers and some intimates. In the baby department, I spotted some cute Valentine themed Disney Bodysuits & more.
Definitely can’t hurt to check and see what you can find. Valentine’s should hit 70% Off (bagged candy should then move to 50%) in 2-3 more days- possibly Saturday or Sunday- but there’s no guarantee and that schedule may vary from store to store.
HOME: Lots of clearance on Michael Graves kitchen tools & gadgets like egg slicers, vegetable peelers, spoon rests, measuring cups and 3-piece colander sets and more ranging from .98 cents to $5.18. Other items in home- Hamilton Beach, Houdini, Chef Mate and George Foreman products all for 30% off. The Hamilton Beach Half Pint Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker was marked down to $20.98 and the George Foreman Classic-Plate Grill for 6 was $34.98.
STATIONERY & MISC
Lots of Stationery clearance going on for many of you too and it is another good spot to look for clearanced Valentine’s items.
For those of you that enjoy scrapbooking, you may want to check out the stickers. One of my favorites, K&Company, is included and they all seem to be 30% off.
Lots of party stuff on clearance too including goody bags, invitations, party favors, tissue paper, gift bags and more all at 30% off. Themes include Hello Kitty, Disney Princess, Spongebob, Dora the Explorer and more. You may not be able to get each party item on clearance but even if you can get some of it on clearance, every little bit helps. You can always use less expensive solid color plates and cups and then splurge on some of the other theme items like napkins and decorations and candles, etc.
Also spotted were select Mead Flashcards for as low as .37 cents and a nice assortment of notebooks and calendars all 30% off. If you need corkboards or magnetic dry erase boards, watch for clearance seen on those as well for 30 to 50% off
STAR WARS NOW UP TO 70% OFF- This clearance has been happening for a couple weeks now- but lots of you are still finding the clearance Star Wars Electronic Helmets- and dropping even lower! A few of you have commented on my facebook page in the last couple days and Christy sent me an e-mail saying they dropped down to 70% at her store yesterday too.
So I wish you guys luck- at 70% Off they will be $5.98- making them just .98 cents after the $5/1 Star Wars Electronic Helmet Target Web Coupon x2/25. There were also some large Star Wars play sets & RC toys on clearance – so you may also want to bring along the $5/1 Star Wars Toy $19.99+ Target Web Coupon x3/24 too.
