    Went to two N. Dallas suburb stores this morning, first, had NO records. Second (Allen):

    Springsteen, Born With the Runs, $ $8.49 (Several in the rack)
    Winehouse, Live At Glastonbury, $14.99
    Beatles, Abbey Road, $9.49
    Beatles, Rubber Soul, $9.49
    David Gray, Best Of, $11.99
    CCR, Chronicle, $$10.99 (Lots in the rack)

    FWIW, they all rang up as CDs

    Just stopped off at a Target in Va. Nothing on the end caps. All the vinyl I could see was full price, confirmed with in-store scanner.

    My local Target, which seemingly never has any vinyl on clearance, actually had some today. Granted, it wasn’t much of a selection, but I managed to still get a few deals. Offspring’s Greatest Hits for $12.49, The Beatles Let It Be Target exclusive with a free T-shirt for $18.99, and Ghost’s Imperia Target exclusive colored vinyl for $11.49. Other than that, there was a ton of Adele, Jack White’s Fear Of The Dawn (which I already have) and a few other titles I had zero interest in. They were all just placed in a random pile on a shelf, in an aisle full of various other clearance items - mostly toys, books and other stuff - about 30 feet away from the regular vinyl area. Had I not bothered to look down that aisle, I never would have known they were there. Tried scanning several other albums in their regular vinyl section, and none were coming up as on sale, just regular price.
    None of these were on sale at my local Target, and I checked, too, so the markdowns seem to be somewhat random by store.

    ^^These seem to be Best Buy finds, not Target.

    Also, FYI, most stores Markdown Teams mark down Electronics items on Mondays, so with most of the current clearanced vinyl being at 50% off, check as early as next Monday afternoon, for a possible drop to 70% off.

    Not a record but in the record section at my local Target there were two copies of the big fat Target edition of the Beatles’ Get Back hardcover which includes four lobby cards. OG price was $42, marked down to $12.60. Will take one for that price for sure.

    I need to be done and I already have the CD/DVD/vinyl set from a few years ago but the Target in Rockville, Maryland had the STP Core Deluxe 4 LP set for about $60 when I was there yesterday.

    Checking my local Target, thur had about 30 titles left in their meager vinyl display. I grabbed the 3 rock titles they had (Led Zeppelin IV, Red Hot Chili Peppers Unlimited Love, Beatles Revolver). All three are priced right at $38. Is that really the new price point? I checked Amazon and LZIV was only $25 there.

    Was LZIV 2 LP version? 1 LP should not be $38

    It was the 1 LP which prompted me to post.

    You need to check the price with the in store scanner. Many I have found to be on sale and are not marked.

    Yep, as I said, I checked - which means I used the store scanner even though I didn’t explicitly state that. There was nothing I scanned that didn’t come up at full price, unless it was already marked with a Clearance sticker. That’s not to say that there might not have been other albums I didn’t check that may have been on sale, but if it wasn’t something I was interested in, I didn’t bother.

    Going back to my earlier statement that it’s somewhat random what’s on sale by store, I checked two different stores to see if the Red Hot Chili Peppers Return Of The Dream Canteen would scan as being on sale, as it wasn’t marked as such. In each case it was a no, with the album being regular price. Same with the Deluxe Edition exclusive version of Imagine Dragons debut album, Night Visions, as these were both titles others had listed as picking up on sale. Yet two days ago, I visited a third Target store a bit further away from me, and I found both those records among their Clearance section, and marked as such at 50% off. Of course I bought them, but it’s weird that some stores had them on sale, while others don’t.

    Same here.. I only have 1 target remotely close to me and everything I tried (Probably 20-25) were all full price. It seems even more of a gamble then the recent Best Buy clearance but i'll happily keep trying if there's a chance.

    I get that all the time. Not sure how or why it is that way, but it definitely is that way. I have five Target stores by me and they are all different on this. Like I posted that Beatles Get Back hardcover deal that I found at my nearest one for $12, but then I saw it at the next closest a day later still marked at full price (and also came up at full price on the scannner.)

    It might be as simple as some stores have more manpower than others, or it might be some crazy algorithm that does it. Who knows? All I can say is that threads like this one have saved me a ton over the last couple of years.

    EDIT: also of note, the Sam Cooke wasn’t visually marked down at ANY of those Targets, but it scanned at $10 at ALL of them and I purchased it twice for that price at two different stores (one for my girlfriend).

    Another way of saying that would be "threads like this one have cost me a ton over the last couple of years", as I find it hard to resist buying things I don't necessarily need just because they're cheap.:D
