Reminder: Shop The Clearance Section!

Just a quick reminder to always shop the CLEARANCE area in your stores! You’ll find items on clearance for all sorts of reasons.  Sometimes even if the manufacturer changes the packaging slightly.

One of my favorite stores to do this in, is Vons (Safeway).  Today I was able to get this 40ct Box of Foster Farms Mini Corn Dogs for ONLY $1.77… with no Coupons!  I’m not sure why these were on clearance today.  They don’t expire until June 2013, and there were several boxes… all in perfect condition!  (Clearance does vary by store, but you might want to check your store to see if you find this deal too.)

Here’s how my transaction went to day:

Foster Farms Mini Corn Dogs 40ct – $6.99
Less 50% OFF Clearance – Deducted $3.50
Less $1.72 – My Just For U Personalized Price was $5.27 ($6.99 – $5.27 = $1.72)
= $1.77 (75% Savings)

At Vons, the bright orange clearance stickers have the regular price of the item on them, just above the big 50% OFF.  The bar code on that sticker is tied to the regular price that is listed.  You can see in my picture that my orange sticker has a regular price of $6.99, which is why it deducted $3.50 for my 50% savings.  Now, if these were on SALE for less than $6.99, or if you have a personalized price that is less (like I did), it will still deduct the  50% OFF based on the price printed on the sticker.  If there was a manufacturer coupon available, I could have used that too!

I do this ALL THE TIME at Vons…. it’s awesome.  I’ve picked up Tide for $0.99, snagged dog biscuits for FREE… even scored large tubs of ice cream for $0.50!  I never leave the store without checking both the clearance cart as well as the freezer clearance.  If you aren’t sure where these areas are in your store, be sure to ask!  It’s obviously going to be hit or miss, but there are some GREAT DEALS if you just take the time to look!

If you aren’t already aware, Vons (Safeway) has an APP for the Just For U program.  Download it to your phone.  You can load coupons to your card while you’re shopping in the store and they will be ready to use immediately!  If you don’t have a smart phone… many stores have computers set up at the front of the store near the registers where you can access your account. Take advantage of them!
