Target Clearance Secrets, Shhhhh!! #TargetColors

Target is one of my favorite stores for a few different reasons. The one number reason is the RED COLOR TAG.

Target 2

No matter where I shop, I enjoy finding  great pieces for a great price. I feel when I enter a Target Store, I get the best of both worlds. Target has great designs, whether for your home or fashion that you can’t get anywhere else. In addition to clothes, it’s also a one stop shop for cosmetics, beauty products and more.

In addition to keeping more of your money in your pocket. I love when I walk by and someone says, “Ohhh I love your dress!” I give them a quick smile and say, “Target! $7!” And there goes the jaw drop. If you understand how to save on clearance, half the battle is already won.

Target 1

Here’s how I save money at Target!

  • Target marks things down to: 15%, 30%, 50%, 75% & 90%
  • Items remain a marked down price for two weeks before it’s changed.
  • Priced ending in 9 equals Full Price (For example $19.99). Prices ending in 8, 6 & 4 equals Reduced priced (For example 14.88) **If you see a price tag with a 4 on it, it’s not going any lower. So choose it or lose it!**
  • Red card: Do you have one? If you do, that’s an additional 5% off each purchase!

Target 3

Where is the Clearance? Every section has a certain clearance area. Of course the clothes will be on the racks, but certain areas like shoes will be in the middle or the end of the aisle. The clearance sign is very easy to spot, remember – they are trying to move these things out of the store.

Target 4

Peter Pilotto made a huge entrance when his line entered Target this Winter. There was major media coverage. I even had friends on Instagram at 8am when Target opened showcasing his fab designs. Now you can get his stuff ON CLEARANCE at a great deal.

Easter is fast approaching and we were able to get my children’s outfits for BOGO 50% off. Mother’s Day is also right around the corner. Check out the deals below.

    I love Target I bought some jeans on clearance there and it fits me so good. I wish I could wear their shoes my feet are wide and none of their shoes fit me well.

    That first picture is too cute. Love it. I love Target clearance and that 5% off, child. Then they also have double points in the pharmacy when you get prescriptions this month… every 5 Rx’s you get 5% well this month you get 2 points per RX vs the 1 point…. Love it!

    I have totally been behind when it comes to Target clearance. I didn’t realize how they mark their items down, but now I will pay better attention when shopping there!

    Thanks for the breakdown. Like you I love target for sooo many reasons myself. I will definitely keep in mind if I spot a 4 to act on it then if it’s something I can’t resist. Great read!
