Ohhh, you guys. Target is so sneaky and so smart!
They have these new clearance signs that say 30%-70% off. So, instead of having to change the signs every time they do a price drop, they just leave them out forever, and I have to go through all the toys and see which ones have been re-stickered with a lowered price and which ones haven’t. That’s the smart part. The more I have to look for things, the more time for me to be enticed to buy the things I’m looking at. Smooth move. I’ll give credit where credit is due, Target.
The sneaky part comes where I, the average consumer, get all excited about the possibility of seeing 70% off savings, but everything I am interested in is actually only 30% off. And Target’s not lying, they said 30% off THROUGH 70%. So I, the average consumer, buy the 30% thing, because I do not read Couponing to Disney and I do not know that if there is a very healthy stock of a product, Target will discount it more.
But the good news is, you do read Couponing to Disney and you do know that there will likely be at least one more price drop during this summer toy clearance. Toys are marked down on Thursday, so I would be very surprised if we don’t see a push in discounts this Thursday/Friday, July 25/26th. And depending on your region and store, you might see the last gasps of clearance on August 1st, but after that, I think we’ll be all done.
Most of the stuff I saw this week was 50%, with a few things at 70%, and quite a few new products coming in hot at 30%. Remember, availability varies by region and by store. I’m actually getting a little antsy because there are quite a few things sitting at 50% off and I need them to drop like whoa!
Okay, toy clearance is getting REAL. Know how I know? These end caps are nowhere NEAR the toy section. This is just like, a random end cap in the store. They’re just overflowing with deals!
