Target: Clearance Toys 70% off Today + Readers Shopping Trips

Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 9.49.29 AM

Today is the day that most Target stores marked down their clearance toys to 70% off.   Many stores were in the process of marking down while people were shopping.  Some people also found that the toys weren’t all on one aisle, they were scattered all over the department.

Our readers have been sharing photos of their shopping trips (which I love)!   We are sharing several with you right now.   It’s fun to see what other find and helps you to know what to watch for.   Keep in mind that clearance deals will vary by location, so I can’t promise you will find the exact same toys marked down at your store.  (Please note, image at top is from a previous sale not the one happening today)

Not finding toys marked down to 70% off at your store:   There are a couple of things that could be happening that you can keep in mind.

  • They employees may be marking down the toys later in the day
  • The 70% off markdown may happen next Thursday instead

I am totally impressed with Jessica’s shopping trip.  She scored so many amazing brands like Hape, Melissa & Doug, Play-Doh and more.   We own that Ladybug Game and highly recommend it, if you spot that on clearance I would totally pick that up.

Reader Found Toys Marked Down to 70% off Today (Wednesday)

11793156_10152920254046573_2059841349_n

Reader Jessica stopped by her Target in Memphis, TN and found the employees marking down the toys to 70% off.  Check out all the great deals she found!   There are a few stores that do markdowns on the toy department on Wednesdays instead of Thursdays. It helps to get familiar with your store to know what day they do markdowns.  I don’t believe the majority of the stores will do the markdown today (I have heard from tons of people who said there was no markdown at their store).

So, if you know for a fact that your store marks down on Wednesdays today would be a great day to check.  Since Jessica found all of these toys marked down today it leads me to believe the BIG markdown will take place tomorrow Thursday, July 30th for the majority of us.

If you head to your store today, I would love to hear what you find!

Target Toys Clearance: More Toys we Found

Here is another peek at some toys we found on clearance. You can view more toys HERE and the LEGOs we found HERE.

Keep in mind that there is currently a 20% off Cartwheel that is good on clearance toys.   Target was pretty clever issuing this Cartwheel before the big 70% off markdown, because when you use the 20% off Cartwheel on an items that is marked down 50% you are saving 60% off the original price.

Here is the math:
$19.99 (original price)
$9.98 (50% off)
-$2.00 (save 20% off with Cartwheel)
Final Price = $7.98

If you wait to buy the item at 70% off you would pay only $5.98 instead of $7.98. I think many people are going to say to themselves “I’m not saving that much more by waiting” and buy the toys now.   I do think this will effect how many toys will be left towards the end of the month. Keep in mind the Cartwheel offer excludes LEGO.

I will say that I have noticed a lot more clearance for girls and little ones this year. Let’s hear if you plan to buy your toys now with the Cartwheel or if you just plan on seeing what you can find when they get marked down to 70% off.

Target July Toy Clearance: LEGO Clearance Deals

I mentioned last week that the BIG Target toy clearance is under way. If things go happen like in years past, we should see many of the clearance toys get marked down to 70% off the last week in July. Out of all the toy clearance deals some of the hottest are LEGOs. In years past they have usually marked the LEGOs down to only 50% off when the majority of the other toys go 70% off. We won’t know the markdown until the day actually arrives.

I did want to give you a heads up on the LEGO sets you want to watch for. I have see the following LEGO sets currently marked down to 15-30% off:  Chima, Creator, Super Heroes, Hobbit, Ultra Agents and City.  I can’t guarantee you will find the exact same sets on clearance at your store, but it’s good to know what to look for.

Target Toy Clearance has Started (Currently 30-50% off) – July 2015

PicMonkey Collage

The semi-annual big unadvertised toy clearance has started at Target. Twice a year (January and July) Target clears out a large portion of their toys to make way for new toys.

In previous years the 70% off markdown has happened the very last week of July. If the same happens this year the markdown should take place on Thursday, July 30th. Please note this is just a guesstimate there is no way to know for sure when it will happen.

This year I have noticed quite a few toys already marked down to 50% off so there is also a good chance that they may mark down more toys in waves this year instead of doing the majority of the toys on the one day.

If you aren’t familiar with this clearance here are a few posts you can read to get you informed. You won’t want to miss this sale, it’s a great way to buy birthday gifts and even get some Christmas shopping done in July.

Here are some things I have found on clearance this time around.   Keep in mind that clearance will vary by location so you may not find the exact same deals at all stores.

I have noticed quite a few infant and toddler toys on clearance this time around.

IMG_3749

A good portion of the Hape toys are being marked down.   This is a great brand and I wouldn’t hesitate picking some up for gifts especially if you seem them at 70% off.

IMG_3752

Several of the classic Fisher-Price toys have been marked down.

IMG_3869

This Fisher-Price puzzle is one of the items I already found marked down to 50% off at my store (Federal Way, WA).

IMG_3750

One of my absolute favorite things to pick up at this clearance sale are games.   I noticed almost every store I have been to recently has a nice stock of The Resistance game.   We own this one and we absolutely love it.  It’s a great group game that I highly recommend.   I would even pay full price for this one (but you don’t have too since it’s on clearance).

IMG_3872

Another game we love that I noticed on clearance is The Ladybug Game.   Two big thumbs up for this game too.  If you see it at 70% off…grab it!   It will make a great gift.

IMG_3870

The majority of the Craftabelle kits and organizers are on clearance.   These were already marked down to 50% off at my store.

IMG_3753

We usually find several dolls on clearance at these sales and I noticed several Monster High dolls being marked down.   They will need to make way for the new dolls that will be brought out for Christmas.

IMG_3751

For those of you with boys, I didn’t notice as many boy toys at my store this time around.   Hopefully your stores will have more variety.   I did notice these Air Hogs toys.

IMG_3807

Sadly, I haven’t seen too many LEGOs on clearance, but I did see this Duplo set marked down to 50% off.

What to Expect Target in July (70% Toy & 90% off Summer Clearance)

July is a BIG month for clearance deals!   Here are some of the sales and clearance deals you can expect to find at Target in July.  These are the major departments that we will see clearance in, but really almost every department will have great clearance deals this month.

Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 11.00.30 PM

Toy Clearance: The BIGGEST deal at Target in July is probably the 70% off toy clearance.   Toward the end of July, Target marks down a nice selection of clearance toys to 70% off.  They do this in order to make room for the new toys that are coming in for the holiday season.   You can learn more about the Target 70% off toy clearance HERE.   The markdown usually takes place the last week of July.

Remember, most stores markdown their toys on Thursdays, so that is the day the markdown will probably take place.   I do know of some stores that do the markdown on Wednesdays, so there is a chance that your store will do the markdown on Wednesday.   There is no guarantee which day it will happen, it’s just a “wait and see” kind of thing.    I will be posting lots of information regarding the clearance sale throughout July in order to keep you informed. Make sure you “like” All Things Target on Facebook to stay up-to-date on this big sale.

If I had to make a guess, I would say that the markdown will probably take place on Thursday, July 30th.   Having said that, I have noticed my store already has some toys at 50% off, so they may mark things down in waves instead of all at once.

Summer Clearance:   Another great section that goes on clearance is the summer section.   All of the items they brought in for summer will get marked down in July.   These items will go as low as 90% off!!     Here are the days the markdowns took place last year (just to give you an idea of when they may happen this year):

  • 70% off happened around July 13, 2014
  • 90% off happened around July 16. 2014

School Supplies:  July is a great time to buy school supplies, before you know it we will see the pack of the store filling up with lunch boxes, folders, crayons and more.  We should see some great sales as well as coupons for school supplies that can translate to FREE items.   Last year we saw FREE pens, Scotch tape, Sharpies, Rose Art items and more.

Patio & Garden Clearance:  The remaining patio furniture  and garden clearance should go down to 70% off sometime in July.    Last year most people saw these items go to 70% off the first week in July.     There is a very good chance we can see the same happen this year, they need to clear out the department so they can make room for all the school supplies.

Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 10.58.34 PM

Baby, Shoes & Clothing:  We should also see some baby items, like car seats go on clearance to 50-70% off during the month of July.   Most stores reported the 70% off markdown happening the last week of July last year.   We should also see some shoes and clothing get marked down to 70% off this month too.  The baby markdowns usually happen on a Monday.

Eddie Borgo for Target:  July 12th the next designer line will hit Target stores and Target.com.   This line consists mainly of jewelry and bags.   You can head HERE to view the Eddie Borgo lookbook.

With so many departments clearing things out we will see lots of brand new items at Target too.   I love, love, love shopping Target in July!!
