EXPIRED: [USA] Target: New Clearance Items 30-75% off
Stopping by one Target on the way home from work ended up a tour around town to 3 more. Clearance prices always seem to vary by store, but across the 4 stores, I found:
30% Off: Hogwart's Express, The Burrows, Hagrid's Hut, Quiditch Practice, Freeing Dobby, and Series 4 minifigures
50% Off: Undersea Explorer, Gateway of the Squid, PoP Desert Attack, Toy Story Trash thing and Pizza Planet Truck
75% Off: PoP Ostrich Race
I think a couple of the small Kingdom packs were also on clearance, I "think" 30% off.
I'm guessing they're trying to make room to move the new Kingdom and Alien Conquest sets off the end cap to the main aisle.
Hope this helps someone.

Why did you put me near the WORST Target on the face of the planet?
At the first:
Most of the mentioned items were 15-30% off, except PoP which was 50% (and has been for over 1.5 months). All CMFs were gone.
At the second:
Most of the mentioned items were 15% or not clearance at all, not a trace of any PoP stock (meaning they haven't had them for some time, not that they were just discounted and swooped up). All CMFs were gone.
No rhyme, less reason.
My store also had the 8088 RC-170 Starfighter, 3182 Airport, and 3181 Passenger Plane for a pathetic 15% off. They had a TON of the passenger plane though, so hopefully it'll drop some more before they're gone.
There's nothing, of course, keeping you from just staying there until they re-stock it, but I've also seen Target employees make it their own personal mission to keep the returned set out of the returner's hands by waiting to process it as a "go back".
Jwsmart-did you get to Target hop? What did you find?
I went to three Target stores around Atlanta and only 1 of them had two Toy Story sets for 50% off. I picked up one of each.
It was weird because even though the stores are so close, each store had different sets on clearance and at different prices/discounts. Strange.
Also had the fire boat for 50% off ($25)
I found that the only sets I saw on Clearance were the smaller sets, not the bigger ones...
As for PoP, I did happen to find 2 of the Desert Attack sets for 50% off and picked them up, but I like the Ostrich Race sets better because the faces are better for mixing in with other lines. But then, a bunch of ostriches is less useful than a handful of the horses.
Many of the ones previously mentioned, but also...
Tie Defender at 50% off for $25. Always thought that set was way-overpriced at $50.
All Toy Story sets 50% off, Racer and Creater sets at 10% and about 10-20% City Airport, Fireboat.
But like some of you mentioned, some Targets had zippo off.
Harry Potter 30% off (Quidditch 50% and Hogwart's regular price)
2010 Castle Kingdom 30% off
2010 Atlantis 30-50% off
Star Wars Tie Defender 30% off, ARC-170 15% off
Toy Story 30-50% off
Pharaoh's Quest 30-50% off (surprisingly soon)
Prince of Persia 50% off (except Battle of Alamut 30% off)
Finding the new Creator Robot being marked down now as well as the Airplane, Smart Car, one store marked the PoTC London set down 30% already-possibly because all of the boxes were crushed?, and the Potter Quidditch set, Scarab Pharoahs set as well. All Targets in the area are marking their LEGO down but at different discounts and for different sets.
Does anyone know if there is an established pattern to Target markdowns? Does it depend on volume? or how big the Lego aisle is/how much room they need to make? Don't get me wrong, the thrill of the hunt is...thrilling. But it would be just as much so if I had any idea what to expect when walking into the store.
Oh, and for the second time (second store), I've seent the new Hogwarts set for 30% off, so maybe Harry Potter is on the way out (at least from Target)?
Have to say, took a look at the Alien Invasion stuff and I love it! UFO was on our project list but we may just take the easy way out and pick up the set instead.
I guess at some point the deals will dry up, but at the moment, they keep me walking into targets several times a week.
Hopefully I will be able to buy the sets when they do mark them down more.
I have to say, Target sales between the different stores makes no sense, lol
Almost every store I have been to has have different sets on sale and at different discounts and they are all with in miles of each other, lol
