Target has a schedule for when it marks product pricing down. Check before you shop for clothes in any categories:

Monday: Kids Clothing

Tuesday: Women’s & Junior’s Clothing

Wednesday: Men’s Clothing

Thursday: Sleepwear, Lingerie & Shoes

Friday: Cosmetic & Jewelry

Ok, now let’s go over these mind-blowing money saving tips for your next shopping trip to Target:


1. How To Read Target Price Tag

The price tag will tell you what percentage the markdown and if the price will go down again or won’t be. The lower left shows the original price, and the upper right hand corner how much percentage off for the current markdown.

If the price tag ends in $0.06 or $0.08 the item will be priced down for around two weeks until more inventory arrives in the store. So, you can wait a little bit until it goes down 🙂

Helpful Target clothes shopping tips: If the price tag ends in $0.04, it is the final clearance and the price won’t go down again. It’s time to buy and fulfill your capsule wardrobe.

Bonus: If you find an item on sale that you wish to purchase, but the store runs out of stock, when the item is restocked you can purchase it at sale price! Request a Raincheck

Every week, Target gives away store gift cards with the purchase of certain items for FREE. You can use coupons to purchase clothes and still get gift cards for your next purchase.

While making your necessary purchases, you can essentially receive credit towards the next items you need. Paying it forwards is nice, but sometimes shopping forward works well too.

8. Best Day To Get Good Deals

Target releases newspaper ads on Sunday and sales run Sunday through Saturday. So if you want to take advantage to get best deal before it runs out, your best bet is to shop on Sunday Funday!

Sunday morning I hit the stores before the major crowds arrive. The best time to arrive is right when they open. The store is better organized, and you can be the first person inside. Find the best items before anyone else starts to destroy the beautifully arranged displays.


9. Look For Red Or Yellow Sales

Target sales are marked by two colors: one is red and the other is yellow. Red sales are “regular” and limited-time sales which last from Sunday through Saturday. Yellow sales are temporary or permanent price cuts which last two weeks.

These color coded sales tags makes it much easier for customers to understand. I’m not sure if the colors are for company purposes, or if this information is truly for the public. Either way, I take advantage of knowing, because knowledge is power.


10. Shop End Caps

Usually these items are up to 75% to 90% off and is one of the best Target clothes shopping tips. The great news is that you can also use your Store Coupons, Target Cartwheel and manufacturer coupons at checkout.
