Target: Back to School Clearance Now Up to 70% Off


More and more of you should be seeing Back to School clearance at your stores with anywhere from 30% to as much as 70% Off. Stores can vary by region on what is left and at what discount, but it’s definitely something to watch closely. Eventually this whole section needs to be cleared out for the next seasonal even – Halloween! ๐Ÿ™‚


I saw lots of Backpacks up to 50% Off and even a few at 70% Off. Back to school clearance is a great way to stock up for the following year on the cheap.


If you are planning on picking up notebooks, be sure and keep an eye out for possible coupons inside. Some of the Mead notebooks this year had a sheet of coupons inside for Hanes, Elmer’s and more and they usually have quite a nice lengthy expiration date too.


Also to remember – most coupons do not exclude clearance items. And we also have a printable threshold coupon valid for a FREE $5 Target GiftCardยฎ w/school supplies purchase of $25+ Target Coupon that does not expire until 10/4. (Excludes Paper Towels, Ziploc, Hand Sanitizer, Kleenex, Electronics, Backpacks & Lunch kits)

While $25 may seem like a lot to spend with all the clearance going on, you could share your shopping trip with a friend and split the reward. Plus you can check outย  the Back to School Target Cartwheel Category for offers- most of which do not exclude clearance.

And I saw a few things that we also have manufacturer coupons for like the Crayola Visi-Mark which were down to $2.48 for me at 50% Off. Here’s a roundup of a few more manufacturer’s coupons and if I think of any more I’ll add them to the list…

  1. I checked today & all the school supplies are still 50% off @ my store in Metairie, LA. Anyone finding 70% off yet & if so, where are you located? TIA! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I called my stores & they said they are still @ 50%, but I don’t always trust what they say on the phone. My main T is close, so I will probably just make a quick trip this afternoon. Hope I find some 70% off! ๐Ÿ˜€ Will post later if so. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The only things on clearance at our store on Sunday were backpacks and lunch bags. No crayons, erasers, etc. They’ve been out of folders for weeks! There wasn’t much left.

  4. Mine was still @ 50% off yesterday. :/ There were loads of folders, notebooks, backpacks & glue sticks, but not many pens, crayons, highlighters or markers left. I will probably go to my other Target tomorrow. Let’s keep this thread going & see who gets to 70% first! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Our kids have already been in school for a month. so I can’t believe it’s taking my Target so long! ๐Ÿ™

  5. Target Honolulu went 70 on some stuff yesterday, most backpacks and lunch pails were 50 and 30 off. Hopefully everything will go to 70 tomorrow including the banzai slip n slide items. I managed to pick up some 0.07 notebooks, $0.11 glue sticks, $0.85 scissors and $0.15 three prong folders.

  6. Ooooooooo!!!! Guess I’ll be making a run today to check! ๐Ÿ˜€ Great prices, Knox!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyone else seen 70% off yet???

  7. My Target in Chicagoland had some stuff 70%, 50% and 30%. Got some decent deals today paired up with coupons and cartwheel. I think my kids are set for the next few years now!

  8. My store was marking down, but not everything went to 70% yet. I found really cheap Up & Up glue, folders & notebooks as Knox mentioned yesterday, but backpacks, lunch boxes & what was left of the markers/highlighters/pens were still 50%. Will check out my other Target in the morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Thanks, Emily, I thought they went to 90% last year, but I don’t think there’s going to be much left this time around. ๐Ÿ™

    I went to my other Target today & they were pretty wiped out of school supplies, but I ended up doing the $5/$25 CG deal 3 times b/c I was buying stuff for my dad, hubby & grandson. I do have to say that I was disappointed how many things didn’t go to clearance this time, but was told that they were regularly stocked items, which they keep in the school supply section year round. I may check my other T again tomorrow, but I’m sure it’s also going to be wiped out. ๐Ÿ™

    Later, I passed the regular school supply section & there were 3 employees resetting it. They were also marking down (only 15%!) Crayola colored pencils, so the clearance game continues! ๐Ÿ™‚
