Leave It To Beaver Season 2 - $9.99 Target

Found it in the clearance section, so YMMV.

If Season 2 is truly being clearanced, it would seem a Season 3 release is in jeopardy.

Target doesn't put DVD's on clearance. They ship them back if they will no longer carry the title. And even if they did, $9.99 wouldn't be a clearance price.

they do put dvd's on clearance, just only once in a great while. They recently had some HD & Blue-Ray on clearance, along with a few other regular dvd's at my targets. B

A few years ago, I picked up the first season of "Punky Brewster" for $9.99 at a local Target. Surprisingly, the other Targets in my area were selling it at the regular price (I think it was $25 or $30). I told several friends about it and encouraged my sister to pick it up for my nieces (she did and they loved it). I've been checking back ever since for a similar sale, but haven't found one. Congratulations on the find, Mr. Peepers, but I believe we were just in the right place at the right time.

Well, it was in the clearance section with a clearance sticker saying it was $39.99 and now it's $9.99.

It was the first time I had ever found a DVD in the clearance section and I really think I did just get lucky.

Yes, I would say you got lucky. My guess is it was a mistake. It would be a very poor business decision to clearance a title like that for $9.99. A company like Target more than likely wouldnt do that. They could easily throw them in their next $19.99 box set deal and get more mileage out of it.

Yeah, sounds like you got lucky, OP.

Not entirely surprising though. It's not like Target hires rocket scientists (nor do they pay enough for the employees to even care that much).

I had a similar experience this past Monday at Target (E/W Connector, Austell, GA). I found The Munsters Season 2 for $7.48 in the electronics clearance area. It had a red clearance tag noting an original price of $29.99. The shrink wrap was a little beat, but the packaging was fine. They also had three copies of some '80s teen sex comedy I had never heard of, along with a few CDs. You never know what you might find in the Target clearance section.

When you say "electronics clearance" area do you mean that the DVD sets were in the electronics area rather than the usual dvd/music area? I tried the Dallas Hwy/Marietta, GA store and couldn't find any clearance movies of any sort. I'm very near the E/W Connector store and am curious to just go and see what I can find as well. I just want to make sure I'm clearly understanding where to look.

When the dvd is rung up, does it come up as $9.99 or does the cashier have to override the price?

$9.99

And by electronics clearance, the dvd was in the clearance section over in electronics and not the dvd section. It was at the end of the aisles where I am.

I have been in out Target a million times and have never seen a clearance area anywhere. Must be a regional thing.

They are very well hidden, at least at my local Targets. They are usually on the endcaps facing the walls, so the farthest possible out of view.

I've seen lots of random things thrown on them, DVDs occasionally, but not very often.

The clearance endcap I saw was in the electronics section, back where the printers are. If I recall, the endcap faces the wall that would be closest to the front of the store (if that makes sense). The electronics clearance had moved since the last time I had checked it a month or so ago, but it does have a tendency to be tucked away, out of the main trafffic areas. I mainly circle around the electronics area when I'm in Target and look for the red clearance stickers. Happy hunting!

Thanks for the tip. Amazing that clearanced DVD's would be in electronics rather than the movie music area, but sure enough there was an entire bin of all sorts of clearance movies and software just dumped in it at random.

I got Perry Mason Season 1, Volume 1 for $9.99. They had Dallas S5 for even cheaper, only $8.96. There are 3 Targets within a 10-15 minute radius of my house, but only one had the clearance DVD's. Needless to say, in the future, I will be making periodic visits to this Target to see what other treasures I can find.

The DVD's scanned and rung up at the clearance price without any sort of override. I LOVVVVVE A Bargain!
