    Agreed. Like I said I have 2 Targets within a mile or so of house and I haven't gotten to either one. And one is 100 yards or so from a Barnes & Noble and I still haven't made the effort.

    None of these were marked down in any of the stores I visited. I mostly saw
    Rumours, Born In The USA, James Taylor's Greatest Hits, Eagles GH Vol. 1, What's Goin' On,
    a few Zeppelin titles including IV which was the single disc LP marked down to $27.99 from $34.99!
    Then I found out these copies were pressed with Jimmy Page's tears.

    Saw a couple of those yesterday, as well as picture disc of Britney Spears first LP for $7.xx and Beyoncé’s album (one where she looks like an expressionless mannequin on the cover) for $8-9.

    Didn’t buy any.

    Forgot to mention - it was mentioned in another Target related thread - but there was a copy of a Target exclusive Bob Marley’s Exodus bundle (the album and a L size t-shirt). A shelf tag had the Target exclusive Exodus for $11.99, but it wasn’t clear whether there was a non-bundle “just album” Target exclusive Exodus or it was referring to the bundle. The bundle scanned at $39.99 at one of those self-check scanners, but I would think you could snap a pic of the shelf tag and get someone to price override it to the $11.99.

    I already have Exodus, so didn’t pursue it, though a Marley t-shirt would have been fun enough.

    Are these LPs in a special sale section, and are they within the record section or somewhere else? Do they have the sale price listed on the LPs?

    I brought a Gibb Brothers Songbook to a cashier, and was told it's $26.

    It does vary by location, but recently I've found you have to hunt for the "clearance section" which is typically close by the normal section. It's usually on an endcap or on the end aisle (where all the other aisles terminate/meet) and there's usually a mishmash of books, video games, records all together and marked with clearance stickers. When they had a larger clearance of quite a few LPs, they were also in a different section, but in that case, it wasn't on an endcap with other types of items (as I think there were too many LPs to fit in a miscellaneous clearance section).

    The best thing is to ask a sales associate and they can usually point you in the right direction. If someone says they don't know, ask another. :)

    Great info but i've personally had horrible experience trusting any Target or especially Walmart employee to point me in the direction of anything that's not blatantly obvious. I know my local Target had one close by the Vinyl section which I asked an employee when all these sales started if there were any more clearance sections that might have records.. He bluntly told me that the one I looked at was the only one for music. I went back a few months later and found out there was another one kind of hidden a bit about 10 isles the opposite direction which I missed and they supposedly have had for quite awhile (Found a Rolling Stones in there but it looked heavily picked over). Worst of all this is where they usually put all the clearance vinyl a different employee told me :doh:

    Who knows what I missed out on but i'd suggest looking a bit yourself or asking a second employee somewhere else even if you do get an answer. I told that original employee about the second spot and he just said "oh true" and walked the opposite direction...

    My store had FIVE copies of the Go-Go's Greatest and all of them scanned for $21.99 each. :shrug:

    AC/DC Highway To Hell LPs were $7 and some change at my store. Eagles Greatest Hits was $4.99. The UPC was coming up as an unknown item, so the associate priced it at $4.99.
    That was fine by me.

    About a month or two ago, at a local Target, Bob Marley's Exodus box w/ t-shirt was under $20. They sold out of them. This past week, the same store had about 5 copies of the box and they were all priced at their normal price. It's completely hit or miss.
