I have had a ton of questions about when the July Target Toy Clearance will be starting this month. For those of you who haven’t participated in the Target Toy Clearance before, they usually have a great clearance sale twice each year… once in January and once in July.
They used to mark down their toys 75%, but they have started only going up to 70% off at most stores. But the difference is small enough to where you can still find lots awesome deals on toys!
The Target toy clearance is where I get the majority of the Christmas presents for the kids (and I usually take advantage of the one in July instead of the one in January so that I don’t have to hold them all year!)
These are also GREAT stock-up prices for birthday presents and shower gifts!
Last July the major 75% off clearance started on Thursday July 28th (it slowly went from 30% off to 50% off throughout July) and while sadly Target doesn’t let us know when their clearance sales are going to begin, I would guess that they would start the 70% off clearance this year on Thursday July 26th, 2012.
Keep in mind that that is my best GUESS and there are no guarantees that it will start on that day. I would HIGHLY recommend following the Surviving The Stores Facebook page and watching it closely over the next month. We have lots of awesome readers who let us know when they see the clearance at their stores!
Are you curious what kind of deals readers have gotten during the Target Toy Clearance before?
Well, here’s what I got last July. It was originally $186, and I only paid $46.50!
Surviving The Stores’ reader Jenni spent $151.14 for $476.39 worth of toys:
Dara spent $394.08 on $1576.32 worth of toys
Sarah spent $69.76 for $261.80 worth of toys ($192.04 saved!)
