Thanks to so many of you for taking the time to let me know what you've spotted on clearance at Rite Aid lately. I thought it might be helpful to do a post containing everything I know about this sale. Basically, MANY of the limited edition makeup and polish collections from Summer 2011 and Fall 2011 are on 50% off clearance, but this varies from store to store. Strolling through my local Rite Aids I saw just about every summer/fall 2011 collection I have covered on this blog currently 50% off clearance!
- Unlike the CVS beauty clearance sales, it appears that the products on clearance at Rite Aid seem to vary from store to store. In other words, what YOU may find on clearance is not necessarily what I may find on clearance.
- Some stores put yellow clearance stickers on their displays, while other choose to take all the clearance merchandise and put them in bins on end caps. I went to several locations this week in my town and here's some of what I saw:
Some stores move all the clearance merchandise to bins and put them on end caps like this:
Yep, that's the Maybelline LE stuff from Fall 2011
While some stores leave the displays up but put yellow clearance stickers on the items like this:
I couldn't believe the Jesse's Girl baked palettes were on clearance!
This one REALLY surprised me!
So what did I buy? Well aside from a back-up bottle of Autumn Leaves which I paid A DOLLAR for (clearance price: $2.07 and I had a $1 off Maybelline coupon), I found this display and couldn't resist:
These are two-packs that regularly retail for $12.99, so for about $6 I got this:
Look at all that taupe-y goodness! If you haven't seen my review of these Physician's Formula automatic eyeliners, they're a STAPLE of mine, and I swear I wear the taupe liner at least three times a week. I'm so excited to have a back-up and all those pretty taupe shadows for just $6! The liners alone retail for $9.99, so what a deal, huh?
