Target’s Markdown Schedule.

Target Mark Down Schedule

Target will markdown each dept. “every 2 to 3 weeks” when corporate sends them the notice.

  • 1st markdown- 30% off original price
  • 2nd markdown- 50% off original price
  • 3rd markdown- 75% off original price


  • If the price ends in $0.06 or $0.08, the item will be marked down again. Pay close attention to sale prices, and you might be able to save even more if you come back again.
  • However, if the price ends in $0.04, the item is marked for final clearance. It won’t be marked down again, so snag it now if you really want it!

Different departments have discounts throughout the week, so if you shop for what you need according to the day, you’ll score major deals.

  • MONDAY– Kids clothes, electronics, stationery (office supplies, gift wrap),
  • TUESDAY– Women’s clothes, domestics
  • WEDNESDAY– Men’s clothes, toys, health and beauty
  • THURSDAY– Lingerie, shoes, housewares, sporting goods
  • FRIDAY– Cosmetics, hardware, auto, jewelry

Discounted meat cheese and yogurt $2 off coupons day before expiration date. Check when on sale for expiration dates and come in on that morning (use cartwheel)

  • Print out coupons before you go. You can get tons of coupons directly from the Target site.
  • Buy store-brand items. Target carries store brands like Up & Up, Market Pantry, and Archer Farms that deliver the same quality at lower prices. Their five-ounce Up & Up blackhead facial scrub costs just $3.49 compared to this $8.99 Olay facial cleanser of the same size.
  • Sign up for the mobile coupon program. Download the Target app and tap “mobile coupons” to sign up and begin receiving ongoing coupons directly in the app.
  • Or just text COUPONS to 827438 (Target) to receive coupons immediately.Text every time you go to Target so you can skim over the day’s available deals.
  • Take advantage of seasonal clearance.Knowing when to shop can lead to big savings, from postholiday merchandise to bikinis during Winter or sweaters during Spring. You’ll thank yourself later in the year when you realized you’ve already bought items you thought you needed. The best months to find clearance deals are January, July, and August. Here’s a general guide to shopping after holidays: The day after the holiday: 50 percent off…Three days after: 75 percent off…A week after: 90 percent off
  • Combine manufacturer coupons with store coupons.Target accepts one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon per item. You can even get items for free by doing this.
  • Shop with cash only.If you plan ahead and know exactly what you need, you’ll have an estimate of how much your purchase will cost. Head to the store with cash, not your credit or debit  card, so that you’ll be forced to stick to your set budget. Because do you really need another cute coffee mug?
  • Check out the Dollar Spot on the way in  before you peruse the rest of the store, you might be surprised by what you find. The dollar section changes seasonally, so check it out for gifts throughout the year. Use the Target Cartwheel app. Target describes Cartwheel as “carrying around hundreds of coupons in your pocket, all neatly organized and accessible.” You can sign in using Facebook or download the app for free on your phone, and you’ll be able to browse hundreds of deals across every category.
  • Consider the Target Red Card. You probably brush it off every time the cashier asks you if you’ll be using your Red Card, but if you consider it next time, you could end up saving a lot in the long run. You can choose a card that works either like a debit or credit card, and there are multiple perks: there’s no annual fee, you’ll get 5 percent off your entire purchase every time, you’ll get free shipping online, and you’ll have 30 extra days for returns.
  • Shop the endcaps of the aisles. Otherwise known as those shelves at the end of the aisles, endcaps are easy to browse and often display items on sale or clearance. You’re less likely to find clearance items on the main aisles of the store.
  • Divvy up your deals with a friend. If you want to buy household supplies but don’t have the need or space for large quantities, consider using coupons on top of splitting the cost with a friend.
  • You can find brand-new Target merchandise at Goodwill. After Target puts certain items on clearance and still doesn’t sell, it will send the items over to Goodwill. Don’t knock thrift shopping until you try it!
  • Check your receipt for coupons before you toss it.Be sure to look over your receipt before throwing it away. Target sometimes prints coupons at the bottom — a nice bonus for the next time you come back.
  • Utilize Target’s price-match guarantee.If you find an item at a Target store then find the identical item for less in following week’s weekly Target ad or within seven days from,,,,,, or a competitor’s local printed ad, Target will match the price. Just bring your original receipt and proof of the lower price to Target’s guest services!’
  •  Keep an eye out for free gift card deals. You can find free gift cards with qualifying purchases advertised in Target’s weekly ad or on shelves throughout the store. If the gift card comes with an item you regularly buy, getting the free gift card after purchasing in bulk is totally worth it.
  • Most Targets will give you $0.05 for each bag you bring in to use. How many trips do you take to Target each month? That adds up!
  • Check out’s free samples periodically. Target offers various products as free samples on its website periodically. All you have to do is fill out a short survey, and the product will be delivered to you in three to five days.
  • Check Target’s current promotions before you go. Target updates its current promotions for the store and the website weekly, so if you scan the lengthy list before you shop, you’ll know what deals to look out for. The site details specific product names and exact dates of the sales. Enter Target’s sweepstakes for a chance to win gift cards. Why not? Target continuously offers sweepstakes that anyone can enter, and one grand prize winner each month wins a $1,500 gift card.
