Here is my haul from my very first 70% off toy clearance shopping trip.  In the years past, Christy has always done my 70% off toy clearance shopping for me.   This year I returned the favor and I shopped for her (and her sister).   I was thrilled to grab 2 Equestria girls dazzlings dolls sets for both of my daughter’s upcoming birthdays.  All of the LEGO sets were 50% off.  I had a blast!   I can’t believe this is my very first time hitting the sale in the morning the day the markdown happens.

We would love to see your photos too.   Please share your finds any of the following ways:

Christy got everything here at 70% off, with the exception of the LEGO.   Most people are finding that the LEGOs only went down to 50% off today.   I’m totally jealous of the Nerf Rebelle.

Target 70% off Toy Clearance Today!! (1/15)

Target 70% off Toy Clearance happening today 1/15

Great news!   It appears as if the unadvertised 70% off Target toy clearance is happening today!   Keep in mind that there is a chance your store may not go 70% off today, but most should.   If not, it may happen tomorrow or even next week.

Remember!  Don’t believe the signs on the shelf, check the individual price tags to see if items have in fact been marked down to 70% off.

We LOVE to see your photos (and so do all the All Things Target readers)! You can share your photos any of the following ways:

Thanks to Rebecca for the photo!

Get Ready for the 70% off Target Toy Clearance

It’s getting close to the time when a good portion of the clearance toys will be marked down to 70% off at Target.   The markdown should happen at most stores on a Thursday, but it is possible for stores to mark them down on a Wednesday or even Friday.

If history repeats itself, the markdown should take place on Thursday, January 15th 2015.   Please understand this is not a guaranteed date, it can happen the week before or the week after.    This is an unadvertised clearance, so we won’t know for certain when it happens until it happens.    Historically, the markdown has taken place the middle of January.

Here are some things you can do BEFORE the big sale happens to make sure you are ready for the big day!

Make your list and set your budget:
Figure out your budget now, and stick to it.   It is so easy to go overboard when you see all of the great deals.   I would also make a list of potential gifts you will need for the year.   It’s much easier to decide what to buy when you have specific people in mind.   When I make my list I usually ad a few items for birthday parties my kids may get invited to through the year   (Example: My son is 8, so I will look for items that will work for boys turning 9.)

Check the clearance deals now:
If possible, you will want to visit all of your local Target stores now.   If you have 3 Target’s that are close to your house (LUCKY!) you will want to check what the clearance is like at each store.   This will help you know which store has the largest selection of clearance, and help you to see if there is a store that has more of the items you are interested in.  The store that meets most of your needs should be the one you shop at first.

Should you buy items at 50% off:
If you see an item that you are extremely interested in, but the stock is very low, you may want to pick it up at 50% off.   I do this for VERY FEW items!   I figure another amazing sale will always come along.

If you see an item that has been marked down to 70% off and you already purchased the item at 50% off, you will not be eligible for a price adjustment.   Target does not do price adjustments on clearance items.   You can buy the item at 70% off and then return the original item with your 50% off receipt.

Check reviews before you buy:
Once you have seen which toys are available, go home and check the reviews on  Some toys aren’t worth the money even at 70% off.   You want to make sure you are bringing home quality items that will get played with and last a long time

Keep your schedule clear:
Don’t make any appointments on Wednesday or Thursday for the next couple of weeks.  I am serious about this one!!  It may seem silly, but you don’t want to miss the sale, because you had a dental appointment. Seriously, what’s more exciting – shopping for toys at 70% off, or getting your teeth cleaned?

Get your hiding spot ready:
Once you buy your toys, you are going to need a place to hide them.   I have kept things in my car a couple of times, because I wasn’t exactly sure where I wanted to store them.   On both occasions one of the kids saw something that I was planning to give them for their birthday.  I hate it when that happens!

Check for coupons or rebates:
Check to see if there are any coupons or rebates.  Make sure you check for Target printable toy coupons too.

Here is more information regarding the 70% off Target toy sale:

Target Toy Clearance has Started (Currently 50% off)

Screen Shot 2014-12-26 at 9.31.37 AM

If you are a regular here at All Things Target I am sure you are aware of the BIG 70% off toy markdown that happens every January (and July/August).  If you haven’t heard about this unadvertised clearance sale, make sure you check out these posts to get you up to speed.

The current Target ad shows a variety of toys currently marked down to 50% off.   I’m kind of surprised they’ve included a LEGO set in the photo.   I wouldn’t hesitate picking up that cute set at 50% off.    Most other toys I just wait until they hit 70% off then I buy toys for birthdays throughout the year and even classic toys that I can save for Christmas next year.    The majority of these toys will be part of the 70% off mark down as long as they haven’t all been purchased before they hit the next markdown level.

They 70% off toy markdown generally happens in the middle of January.  Last year the 70% off markdown happened on Thursday, January 16th.    I will be sure to keep you all up to date on when I think the markdown will happen and what toys you may find.

January is by far my favorite month for clearance shopping at Target, there are so many great deals in every department!

Keep in mind that Target could switch up how they 70% off clearance markdown happens, just because they have done it in the past there is no guarantee the markdown will happen the same way each and every year.

The Fine Print from the ad: Clearance quantities limited; no rain checks. Intermediate markdowns may have been taken. Previously purchased merchandise, now on clearance, is not eligible for price adjustments.
