I first posted about clearance being found at some stores on Maybelline Great Lash Mascara for up to 70% Off about a week and a half ago, but I wanted to remind you again since we have an awesome new $2/1 Maybelline Mascara ETS Target Web Coupon. and I just found a bunch at my store yesterday.

They were all marked down to $1.68 – so FREE after a Target coupon. NOTE- the Target coupon is a beeper- so you may have trouble with it but it does NOT specify any certain type of mascara and therefore it should be valid on ANY, but you all know your stores better than I and how they will handle this coupon.

So I knew when I set out yesterday to Target at 4:30 pm last night that it was way too late to find any tin-foil or paper goods and I was certainly right about that. But I was very pleased to see sooooo much Christmas stuff left over. There were scores of wrapping paper and ribbons and gift bags and tags and more- which gives me a lot of hope that some of it will survive to reach 75% Off- the time when I stock up for the following year. It usually happens 4-6 days after Christmas. Some stores go later than others. I believe for me it was the 31st last year, but some stores may drop as early as the 29th. It is also possible we will only see a drop to 70% this year instead of 75.

Many stickers and signs were on other things I already expected – all bagged candy was at 30% Off and all Christmas was at 50% Off at my store. Lots of clearance was spread throughout the store- especially in home. There were Decorative Poinsettia wreaths and plants, Christmas frames, Holiday flannel sheets (some in solids too), and lots of other items all marked 50% Off – but very spread out in the home department. Also lots & lots of Christmas items in the dollar spot all 50% Off. But for me- half the thrill of Christmas clearance hunting is finding the surprises, the things that are not marked.

So, the next area I explored was one that was definitely neglected with clearance signs but yielded a few surprises if you knew what you were looking for. Target stores can differ greatly in layout, but many stores have a sort of small area set up, usually toward the front of the store with items for the current sales or holidays.

I found not one clearance sign, but upon scanning I found more of the larger jars of Monster Mix and Nuts for 50% Off at $4.99 (look for the ones with tags attached). Pepperidge Farm Holiday Cookies had a big price cut sign on them at $2.50- but were 50% Off at $1.50 (50% Off original price of $2.99). So far only the Snowball and Linzer scanned 50% Off for me, but there is a $1/2 Pepperidge Farm Cookies to make them $1 each. But the ones to keep checking are those with the red snowflake design on the package. And I also found Cocktail Mixers Gift Sets marked $14.99 but scanned for $7.49. So if you have an area like this up at the front of your stores- you may want to take a stroll through and see what you can find.

Next I went through the Health & Beauty endcaps and was getting discouraged when gift set after gift set scanned at full price, but then I found one endcap that was not marked but everything on it rang up 50% Off at $4.99. There were Nivea Gift Sets (2 different ones), Bodycology (there is a $1/1 Bodycology Product ETS Facebook Coupon) and 2 different Aveeno Sets (there are $1/1 and $3/2 Aveeno Active Naturals Products ETS in the 10-30-11 SS x12/31). Not one clearance sign or sticker in sight, but all 50% Off.

I could not find any Starbucks Christmas Blend Bags, but if you like the Via, the Starbucks Via 8 ct Christmas Blend were not marked but scanning 50% Off at $3.99. There is a $1/1 Starbucks VIA Ready Brew in the 12-04-11 SS x1/14 and also there is a rebate for a $5 Starbucks Giftcard wyb 3 Select Starbucks Coffee or Via Ready Brew HERE x12/31.

But again these are all items that were not marked and you would never know unless you scan. Yes- clearance differs from store to store- but sometimes a little hunting & scanning on a hunch can pay off. For more items you may be able to find at your stores in the days to come- you can check out the Christmas Clearance Prep List.

There are several toys on clearance at 30% Off this week at Target. While clearance may vary from store to store- one of the toys Kelley found this morning was the Fisher Price Rock Star Mickey which is 30% Off down to $34.23. If you don’t see a sign or sticker- you can always scan to check just in case.

If you have the Shopkick App then there is a very nice deal to be had on this toy as there is a 30% off Disney Rock Star Mickey Shopkick App Target Coupon x1/6 that will bring it down to $23.97 after clearance sale & coupon.

The regular shelf price is $48.89 so it is a savings of over 50%. Target coupons on the Shopkick App are available immediately once you sign up too. If you are not familiar with shopkick- you can read more below…

NOT FAMILIAR WITH SHOPKICK?
Shopkick is a free downloadable application for iPhone or Android phones that automatically recognizes when you go into participating stores, restaurants and more. You earn points called “kickbucks” for anything from entering the store to scanning select bar codes while there that you redeem for different rewards including Target Gift Cards. You will also get scannable Target Coupons like the Mickey coupon listed above which you can use and redeem at checkout.

I finally upgraded my phone- and you can get 50 Kickbucks when you sign up with my link. In turn once you have the app you can get your own unique link under the “Me” Tab to share with friends and you will both get 50 Kickbucks. You do not have to use my link- you can feel free to share your own sign up links in the comments and use each others if you wish.

You can add Target to your Faves list on the app, and once you do you it is quick and easy to view and redeem your Target Coupons. Be sure and wait til you are at the register to use the coupons- they expire 12 hours after tapping the word “use”. Once you are the register- tap the word Use, and up will come a coupon & bar code for the cashier to scan.

Clearance will differ from store to store- but aside from all the usual Holiday items- decorations, ornaments, giftwrap and more, there are lots of seasonal grocery and household items to watch for now that it is after Christmas. Most of these items will be 50% Off, except for bagged candy which will be at 30% Off.

I have quite a large list going of several possibilities to look for along with coupon matchups on my Christmas Clearance Prep list HERE. Not everything will be grouped together in one spot either. Aside from holiday, you may want to check the regular grocery aisles and endcaps for these items too.

And don’t forget to peek in on the dollar spot. It is possible to find Christmas and Hannukkah items there too and they should all be at 50% off.

Here’s another nice holiday find on Coffee-Mate & International Delight. Clearance can vary from store to store- there is no guarantee you will find the same- but you can definitely take a look if any of the holiday flavors appealed to you.

If you don’t see them in the regular fridge section- check your endcap coolers- as that’s where Kelley found hers, and remember it can’t hurt to price check at the scanner if you don’t see a sticker, just in case!…

I’ve gotten a few comments now that some of you are reporting already finding  the Glade Winter Collection items 30% off at your stores! I am so surprised at all the early clearance this year! This will probably be hit or miss- my hubby stopped by this morning and ours weren’t on clearance, but it can’t hurt to check.

The $5 gift card deal is still active and valid thru the 24th, so it can make for a nice deal. The 30% Off will be off original price of $2.99- so most likely if you do find them clearanced it will be right around $2.10 per item. The glade coupons have dwindled- but here is a round up of those still valid in case you find the same at your stores…

-$1.50/3 Glade Holiday Home Fragrance Items Target Web Coupon x12/31
-.75/2; $1/2 Glade 4 oz Jar or Scented Oil Candles 12-4-11 SS x1/14/12
-$1/1; $1.50/1 Glade Plugins Scented Oil Twin Refill or (2) Single Refills 12-4-11 SS x1/14/12
-$1/1 Glade PlugIns Scented Oil Refills 11-20-11 SS x12/31
-$1.50/2 Glade Winter Collection Products
-$1/2 Glade Holiday Products
-.55/1 Glade Premium Room Spray 9.7 oz 12-4-11 SS x1/14/12 

Instead of the $1.50/3 Target coupon- some of you may be able to use the FREE $5 gift card wyb 5 SC Johnson Items Target COUPON12-11-11 SS x12/24 for an even better deal. This coupon IS regional & using with this deal may be a ymmv- but most people have been able to use it in conjunction with the deal for a second Gift Card.

You may also want to scan just to check price just in case. You never know!

-Thanks for the heads up to Juliet, Vanesa & Jennie!

I found this coupon in a banner ad, but it should work for everyone. If it doesn’t let me know. I THINK it is even a new link- so you may be able to print again even if you printed this coupon when it was available earlier. It worked for me anyway- and I know I printed my limit when it was on facebook. I hope it works for y’all too!

Anyway, there is a $1/1 Ghirardelli Seasonal Product 3 oz + HERE. Many of you are already finding certain holiday items in your Holiday section for 30% Off including the Ghirardelli items. This means some very cheap treats or last minute stocking stuffers if you find the same at your stores…

Valerie let me know she found holiday scented Yankee Candles for 30% Off at her store yesterday in a variety of sizes. The largest size, the 22 oz jar was marked down to $18.18 and there is a nice $5/1 Yankee Candle® Company Home Classics® jar 22-oz. Target Web Coupon x12/24 you can use making this size only $13.18. That makes this candle almost 50% off, a pretty good deal for such a well known brand.

Also included in the clearance are the small votives, which Yankee Candle calls their Samplers. They are also 30% Off, marked down from $1.99 to $1.38 and there is a nice variety of scents. Clearance can vary greatly from store to store but hopefully you will find the same!

If you have a REDcard (credit or Debit) for FREE shipping – there is quite a bit of toy clearance going on. Keep in mind these items won’t arrive in time for Christmas, but for example if you have a Cars 2 fan in the house there are toys as much as 70% Off on clearance right now.

The Fisher Price Cars 2 Dragway is down to $13.98 from $39.99 and there were lots of other Cars 2 items too. Plus you can go through ShopAtHome.com who is still offering 6% Cash Back (regularly 3%) or go thru EBATES to get 3% Cash Back on Target.com purchases. There is lots of toy clearance going on though online – even some LEGO sets as much as 60% Off so be sure to take a good look around.  

And when you use your REDcard (Credit OR DEBIT), not only do you get FREE Shipping, but you will also get an additional 5% Off your purchases. And if you are new to ShopAtHome.com you can earn a $5 bonus for signing up, and if you are new to EBATES, you will also get a $10 Gift Card to your choice of Target or other popular stores as a bonus in your account for signing up once you spend $25.

Lots of you report seeing early toy clearance in stores too- but there is no guarantee you will find the same items clearanced in stores that you will online, but definitely worth a look in store too.
