Target 70% off Christmas Clearance Finds!

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

Ahhh! I was hoping that today would be the day for the 70% off Target Christmas Clearance to begin and sure enough, it was!! I know some stores are still at 50% off, but WB and I got quite lucky! Here is what we scored:


Target Clearance
Starbucks Refillable Mugs

~Starbucks Refillable Expresso Tumbler: $22.50 (reg. $75)
~Starbucks Refillable Brewed Coffee Tumbler: $9 (reg. $30)
~Starbucks Mini Red Cup Ornament: $1.48 (reg. $4.95)
I could NOT believe my luck when I walked in and found a treasure trove of these sitting in Starbucks! And the cashier about tipped over when she saw the price. I thought they’d still be 50% off. Not even!

Paper Goods:

Target Clearance
Paper Goods

~Bounty Napkins: $0.89 (reg. $2.99)
~Hefty Cups: $0.89 (reg $2.99)
Umm, there was more GladWare containers, Press N Seal rolls, Ziploc Bags and more napkins than I even saw at Target before Christmas. I saw some lady with a case of Ziploc bags. I restrained myself because umm, I don’t need any more of those (I’m learning).

Tape / Washi:

Target Clearance
Tape / Washi

~Scotch Expressions Washi Tape: $0.89 (reg. $2.99)
~Scotch Tape – 3 Rolls: $2.39 (reg. $7.99)
Make sure to check the regular aisles for this kind of stuff. It easily gets mixed in. And when it doubt, SCAN! I also saw some scissors that will likely be around for 90% off because they look JUST like the “non-clearance” ones. I will try and take a picture when I go next.


Target Clearance

~Keepsake Stone: $3 (reg. $10)
~Kid Made Modern Craft Tape: $2.69 (reg. $8.99)
There are a ton of Kid Made Modern Christmas Kits out there!  I found a bunch on an end cap, totally untouched.  I’m hoping to find them at 90% so I didn’t pick up anything except for the tape.

Kid’s Toys:

Target Clearance

~Ninja Turtle Legos: $1.19 (reg. $3.99)
~Hot Wheels 4-Pack: $1.31 (reg. $4.99)
~Play-Doh: $1.19 (reg. $3.99)
~Tonka Truck: $1.79 (reg. $5.99)


Target Clearance

~Accent Rugs: $4.49 (reg. $14.99)
I also saw Christmas hand towels and kitchen towels sitting around, so make sure to check the regular aisles for this kind of stuff. It easily gets missed!

Health / Beauty:

Target Clearance
Health / Beauty

~EOS Lip Balm: $0.89 (reg. $2.99)
~EOS Gift Set: $1.49 (reg. $4.99)
~French Vanilla Hand Cream: $0.89 (reg. $2.99)
Notice that the packaging on these is holiday’ish.  You can see the little reindeers if you look closely at the individual packs.  These were both found in the regular aisles in the lip balm area.  The hand cream was in one of those cardboard tree displays which are scattered around the store.  Be sure to scan that stuff because it is not signed 70% off, but most of it is.

Wilton Pie Pan

Target Clearance
Wilton Pie Pan

~Wilton Pie Pan: $3.59 (reg.$11.99).
All Wilton items with this packaging is included in the Christmas clearance.  I found an entire end cap in the kitchen area with this stuff.  Shouldn’t be too hard to find when it goes to 90% off.

Mason Sippy Cups / Plastic Ware

Target Clearance
Mason Sippy Cups / Plastic Ware

~Mason Jar Sippy Cups: $1.49 (reg. $4.99)
~Silverware: $0.90 (reg. $3.00)

Target Clearance
A Clue

If you aren’t sure if something is on sale or included in the clearance and can’t find a scanner, flip it over and check for this tab.  It doesn’t work for everything that’s included, but if you are looking for say, silverware or napkins, it’s an easy way to determine which is clearanced and which isn’t, since they all look the same.

I also took some pictures of some other clearance stuff that I saw and didn’t buy!  Some of it I am hoping to find at 90% off and some of it I just felt like taking  pictures of 😉
IMG_8300 IMG_8301 IMG_8302 IMG_8304 IMG_8305 IMG_8306 IMG_8307 IMG_8308 IMG_8311 IMG_8482 IMG_8483 IMG_8484 IMG_8485 IMG_8489 IMG_8490 IMG_8491IMG_8493 IMG_8494 IMG_8496As always, scan, scan, scan!!!  And don’t just go to the clearance section!  Make sure to check the regular aisles as well!  If you are hoping to find pajamas on sale, check the normal kid’s clothing section.  Want cookie sheets and pie pans?  Check out the kitchen section!  When things get to 70% and 90% off, that stuff doesn’t last long in the normal Christmas Clearance section. Sometimes it never even gets moved there by the employees.  BUT if you make sure to check ALL of the regular aisles, you will probably be able to uncover lots of fun goodies!

Have you made it out to the Target clearance yet?  What’d you score???

    You hit the jackpot! I am so jealous of those Starbucks items as always! I’m so sad my Targets never have anything!

    1. Jennifer

      I couldn’t believe they had those tumblers. I felt like I was robbing Starbucks when I bought them.

  2. Lorns

    Target needs to open in the UK stat!

    1. Jennifer

      They totally do!

  3. Leana

    I got those Starbucks advent calendars for $5. Not bad considering they included a $5 giftcard.

    1. Jennifer

      Not bad at all!!!

  4. Beth

    Oh my gosh! I am headed to a couple of the Targets around me to see what I can find now!! I held back and only bought a couple things when they were 50% off.

    1. Jennifer

      Let me know what you find!

  5. Ashley C.

    Man I need to get to town! Hopefully our store will still have SOME stuff come Tuesday! Especially a couple packs of the diapers — I’m pretty sure they were marked down to like $4 or something, and with the Cartwheel app, are ringing down another 5%!

    1. Jennifer

      That would be a score!!! I totally don’t need any, but have a hard time resisting that kind of thing…

  6. Callie

    I got me and my sister one of the tumblers today from our target for $22.50…I was beyond excited bc I thought they were only going to be half off. What I want to know is how are they going to be able to know that someone only uses their tumbler once. Where I live we have 5 Starbucks that are all easy to get to, so I could see people trying to use the tumbler for more than one free drink a day.

    1. Jennifer

      Oh I doubt they would ever know!

  7. Berit

    I was at Target yesterday, but only glanced at the discount stuff in dollar section. I was tired from grocery shopping, but wish I would’ve looked for a few deals in other aisles. You did great!

    1. Jennifer

      I always hunt! I’ve been target clearance shopping for years.

  8. Cathy@Five Boys

    My Target is always so cleaned out; I never find all the great stuff you do. I must not get up early enough!

    1. Jennifer

      I dig for it when it gets to 90% off!! I didn’t get there today till 10ish either. I think they opened at 8!

  9. Bre

    I’m so jealous. As usual my Target is still sitting at 50%. I think it’s because there are only 2 here.

    1. Jennifer

      One of the Targets in my area is 50% off too. I don’t think there is any rhyme or reason with how they do it!

  10. Tabitha

    Your Target always seems to have some better/ different toys. I would have loved all the toys you snagged. I’m pretty sure none of my stores had those to even begin with. Some of the other toys you took pictures of we have in stock though. I found some if the eos lip balm at 50% off the other day, I totally had to dig for it. I didn’t even think to look at the Starbucks in Target; I need to do that in the morning for sure.

    1. Jennifer

      Where is your Target? I always thought they got the same stuff, but maybe if the Seasonal area is smaller they don’t?

  11. Janaya

    I went to my target today, and everything was still only 50% off. I picked up a couple things that I really needed (9in cake pan, cookie sheets, and tape) but I will definitely be back once it hits 70%! I was surprised at how much stuff was still there, and I’m really excited to see what deals I can score with the 70% off!

    1. Jennifer

      I only buy cookie sheets and that kind of stuff in the after holiday clearance!!! The deals are so good!

  12. maria

    please tell when its 90% ? alot of people say its on the 2nd others until 5th HELP!!!

    1. Jennifer

      No one really knows. In general, it’s 50% for the first three days after the holiday (26, 27th & 28), then 70% off for the next three days (29, 30 & 31), which would make 90% off on the 1st. But target has been known to switch things up and keep things at 70% longer, etc. so no one knows. The best way to find out is to go to your store (don’t call because they don’t always know) and scan stuff because the signs may say 70% and it’s really 90%. I doubt it will happen before Jan. 1 though. Checking on in the Target thread helps too!

  13. Jenny

    I’m hoping to make it out tomorrow and do some hunting. M is off so he can wrangle the boys around while I hunt 😉

    1. Jennifer

      Let me know what you find!

  14. maria

    ok thanx so much!!! this yr seems like things are going faster

  15. alyssa

    Now I’m kind of wishing I’d asked to go with my dad on his weekly target run last night to try to get some clearance deals for my nieces birthday and next christmas. She’d love those kids craft kits we got her lots of little craft things for Christmas this year including a zipper jewelry making and spin splatter art. But she’s been at her dad’s and then her other grandparents since Christmas morning so aunt Lisa doesn’t get to play with them yet lol only since I know I’ll be the one she asks you to play with them with her lol

    1. Jennifer

      LOL! Hopefully he’ll make another run so you can go!!!

  16. Lauren

    I was excited to find an espresso tumbler for my husband at a Target by me today but it was only 50% off. The Christmas stuff was only 50% off as well. I suspect the tumblers will get marked down (if there are any left) when all the Christmas stuff gets marked down again. I still think the tumblers are a great deal! My husband and I plan on walking to Starbucks every morning before work to get our drinks!

    1. Jennifer

      Even 50% off is a good deal! A really good deal actually! And I agree that it’s getting marked down with the clearance markdown.

  17. Karin

    What were you showing us on the back of the plastic flatware that indicated it was a holiday item? Was it the little snowflake circle at the top?

    1. Jennifer

      Yes. Sorry. I don’t know if it’s a snowflake or a flower or what. But it pretty much means clearance item.

  18. Carly DeMello

    What section did you find the starbucks tumblers in? I dug through the $1 section and got a bunch of books and stickers for my daughter s daycare for about $5 and for $.90 each 6 weekly desk planners for my coworkers. Wish I could post pictures. Can you email me the face book group that swaps/trades subscription box items?

    1. Jennifer

      They are in the Starbucks inside of Target. if you’re Target does’t have a Starbucks, I doubt you will find them. I will send you an e-mail invite!

      You can post pictures on my Facebook page!!!

    2. Jennifer

      Wait I just tried to send you an invite and it says you have already been invited to the group and it won’t allow me to send you another.

  19. Meghan

    You are a genius, savy, bargain shopper! I’m so stinking jealous! I just gotta try out your tips and check out target tomorrow, if only to just find one thing. Thanks for the tips.

    1. Jennifer

      LOL. Thanks! I hope you are able to find some things!!! My mom is always amazed by what I can find, but I’ve been reading the Target threads over at Slick Deals for years, so I have a pretty good idea of what to look for.

  20. Adrienne A.

    So jealous – my Targets have been all out of the Starbucks mugs even at 50% off. Your Target seems way better stocked than the 4 I’ve been to so far.

    1. Jennifer

      My favorite one always seems to be packed with stuff. The Starbucks mugs are going fast though. None of the store s super near me have them anymore.

  21. Jen K

    My Target had nothing by the time they put the stuff out on 30% sale. At 50%, it was total chaos. Sigh!

    1. Jennifer

      Your Target must be better at ordering than mine!

  22. Kristin

    Also, make sure you check the regular toy aisles for clearance. I know that the big toy clearance happens in January but I got a lot of great deals on Saturday. They had many things down the aisles for 50%-70% off. I also grab things for my gift closet and I was able to great some great toys (LaLa Loopsy, Nerf Toys, etc.) for awesome prices to save for future events. 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      Great deals!

  23. Tracy

    Dog toys, dog toys, dog toys. It’s going to be Christmas around here for a loonnnggg time.

    We always buy a couple of each holiday dog toy at 50% off, see what lasts (my dogs are hellbeasts on toys), and then hit it up big at 70% – bonus if anything lasts to 90%.

    I took a photo – we kind had something like 30 dog toys in our cart.

    Ours was cleared out of paper and plastic goods. 🙁 luckily we bought big on those at 50% off.

    1. Jennifer

      OMG that is a lot of toys!!!

  24. sarah

    Thank you for the great pictures! I’d love to look at the slick deals Target thread – would you kind of explain which section it’s in? I searched around the slick deals site and didn’t find a discussion / thread just for Target.

  25. Jenn C

    My Target was pretty much cleared out of the “obvious” holiday stuff, but I managed to snag tape (the 3+1) packs, and totally surprised to find the Doc McStuffins stethoscopes at $1.94. None of the other DMcS sets in the same display though.

    1. Jennifer

      The non-obviously stuff is always what I like to find!

  26. Melissa

    I was just at Target Saturday but have to go back today. I didn’t even think to look at the diapers!!…I also want to go back & look for those magical pens cause I couldn’t find them 🙁

    1. Jennifer

      I hope you can find them!

  27. Jenny

    Since I still can’t reply to a reply (very weird) I’m writing again. We went to one store this morning and it was crazy crazy crazy. It is a huge Target and they only had one aisle and an end cap of Christmas left. I managed to get a couple roles of paper that were not Justin Beiber, some Disney gift bags and some washi tape. I tried looking in the regular aisles but this store is way to organized. Heading out to dinner with M tonight and if time after that and before the movie I’ll try another one. Its a smaller Target but sometimes I can’t find goodies.

    1. Jennifer

      There must be some glitch today or something??

      Too organized stores are no good! We have one like that around here. I avoid it at clearance time ;).

  28. Amanda

    Because of this post, I ran out to Target. There was a lot of nice Christmas stuff but I can’t imagine adding more to my collection right now, so I held back. I ended up buying that hand cream (Apricot Vanilla) and a few Scotch tape rolls for 60 cents. I wish I could have found Starbucks stuff, but there’s no clearance left there. I may try another Target this week 🙂 Thanks for the tips!

    1. Jennifer

      I am so trying to avoid buying more ornaments!! I have SO many!

    2. Jennifer

      I do love that hand cream!!!

  29. Rachel

    Does anyone have the dpci number for the EOS lip balm?? I would really love to pick some up!!! Thank you!!!!

    1. Jennifer

      Which one do you want? Both the set and the individual? I will dig them up in the morning. Is there an online tracker that is working these days?

  30. Melissa

    The valentines washi tape in the $1 section is super cute!! I saw red with white hearts, pink with white hearts, pink & white striped, red & white chevron and black & white chevron!!

    1. Jennifer

      I know where I am going tomorrow.

  31. Sarah

    Thanks Jennifer for the link…couldn’t post it above.

  32. Jill

    You are a good sauvy shopper! I am not if it is me or my Target but one of us sucks! LOL I couldn’t find any of the great deals you got! I was really hoping for the washi tape and the Eos but couldn’t find anything in the regular isles. I couldn’t find the Matchbox cars either but I did find those at Halloween in the regular isle so maybe they were just gone. I couldn’t find the napkins either. But I did spend a fortune on new cubbies for my daycare, storage baskets, chevron lamp shades for the living room……….

    1. Jennifer

      I’ve been target clearance shopping for ages! i know what to look for now! I do a lot of digging when it gets to 90% off! And luckily I have tons of Targets by me, which helps.

  33. Rachel

    Hey Jennifer– I would love to have both if you have them I don’t know of an online checker but a can just call the local stores and give them the dpci. Thank you sooo much!!! Hope they have some left!!!

    1. Jennifer

      The single EOS is: 094030251
      The EOS set is: 094030257

      Good luck!
