Target Clearance for February

Here is the clearance to look for in February!

Women’s Accessories:   Check the women’s accessories for lots of clearance.  They are clearing things out to bring in the items for the new season.  Monday is the markdown day for this department.

Frames, Artwork & Mirrors:  There were recently new markdowns in these departments, so I am not certain they will go 70% off this month, but they should go to 50% off for sure.  

Clothing Clearance: Look for mark-downs of 50 and 70% off.

Valentine Clearance: The Valentine items should go 50% off on February 15th (candy and food items will probably be only 30% off). Eventually, the items will get marked down to 70% off and 90% off. Make sure you check all of the items, because there are some items that would be great as Eater Basket stuffers.

Here are the dates the clearance items were marked down last year:

  • 50% off ~ February 15th
  • 70% off ~ February 18th
  • 90% off ~ February 20th

Kitchen Clearance:  We should see kitchen clearance go to 70% off sometime this month. Watching the kitchen clearance? These items are usually marked down on Thursdays.


Bedding Clearance:   Lots of bedding gets marked down to 70% off sometime in February.   They are clearing out the old to bring in the new merchandise for spring and summer. The markdown day for this department is also Thursday.





Why Amazon Prime is Awesome

Benefits of Amazon Prime

There are quite a few benefits included in Prime Membership — not just the 2-day shipping which is its most popular perk.

1. Two-Day Shipping

This is the central benefit of Amazon Prime that is well-known by everyone who uses it. For the entire year, members receive free and unlimited two-day shipping on almost everything sold by Amazon with no minimum purchase required. (There are exclusions to this.)

If Amazon delivers after the two day mark, Amazon Prime Members may be eligible for a free one month extension. Get Your Deal!

2. Streaming Television and Movies

Amazon Prime members have free access to unlimited streaming of over 40,000 movies and television episodes through Amazon Instant Video. Granted, the selection doesn't include the newest properties, but it provides plenty of options. Get Your Deal!

3. Kindle Owners' Lending Library and Kindle First

The Kindle Store boasts 500,000 Kindle titles. Amazon Prime members can borrow one book a month for free to read on a Kindle or Kindle mobile app. Think of it as a personal mini-library with all of the latest and greatest titles at your fingertips. Additionally, Amazon Prime members receive a free Kindle First book every month. Each month, Amazon Publishing editors select four new books each month that will be released the following month. Kindle First subscribers can choose one of these four titles for $1.99 to read a month before it's released to the general public. Amazon Prime members get their Kindle First choice book for free. Get Your Deal!

5. Amazon Prime Music Streaming

Amazon is considering the possibility of getting in on the streaming music act. The company is rumored to be in negotiations with a number of record labels though the details are fuzzy at best, and the agreement, if there is one, may take quite a while to unfold.
