Target toy clearance



Did you catch today's 70% off toy sale? Target runs this sale at the end of every July for the last few years (three that I have participated in). It's becoming more popular. Today we hit the store before noon. The employees were just starting the toy section. I saw 5 other women patiently circling the store until the markdowns were complete. FYI for the 70% to reflect in the price the T-team members must hand scan each toy. I feel for them. Santa finished early for Jr this year.

If you sign up for swagbucks you can earn 5 like cards a month. I easily reach 5($5 cards a month) with minimum effort and could have bought these toys for free by Christmas. However I am inpatient and spend my gift cards on craft items immediately. If you are dedicated and patient these cards stack in your amazon account until you use them. They do not expire in your amazon account.
