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.
