It’s playtime at Target, especially for bargain hunters. Our very own in-house cheapskates (Laura & Bryan!) have personally checked multiple locations and now’s the time to make a Target run for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone with children in their lives. The popular big-box chain has tons of toys on clearance, as they make room for the new toys coming in for the upcoming holiday season.
Right now, you can find big savings in just about every aisle in the toy section — from 30% to 70% off.
Seventy percent off is usually the ceiling for clearance at Target. (After that, clearance items are transferred to the Goodwill or other non-profit organizations, as we understand it.)
Consider yourself extremely lucky, if you find any clearance at 90% off on Target’s shelves.
As a result, now is the time to shop for birthdays (for your own and other children), surprise presents and the upcoming holidays.
The trick is to just find a really good hiding spot at home, so snooping kids can’t find their presents before it’s time to unwrap them.
As always, selection, supply and percentage discount varies by location. If you have the time, it may be worth the time to make a Target run to several locations.
For those clearance items 30% to 50% off, you can always wait to see if the price drops even further.
However, there’s a chance the items will be gone by the time you return. It’s a gamble many bargain hunters are well aware of — buy now at a good discount or wait for an amazing (bigger!) discount?
