I have gotten two different emails today that some stores are already marking down Easter candy, plushes and more!  So far this has been spotted in a Walgreens and a CVS.

I’m not normally one for getting excited on early clearances, but in the case of holiday candy this is very fun!  You’ll notice all your Easter candy coupons expire on Easter Sunday… doesn’t leave much fun for after Easter clearance sales… so if you can spot some of these early sales you can go crazy with the coupons and the sales!

Here’s one email:

I was in my local Walgreens in Mooresville, NC tonight, and they are have placed a majority of their Easter merchandise at 50% off already.  This included plush animals, Peeps, Hershey’s candy and many more items.  I was told by the cashier that it is up to each store’s manager so it may vary from store to store but for $12.00 I bought two bags full of candy, sidewalk chalk, coloring books and bubbles for my 4 kids.

I don’t know about you guys, but it at least makes me curious to head to my store and see what they are doing…

Have you spotted any sales in your area?

      CVS in Atlanta will not be marking down Easter until after Easter, from what I’ve been told, they get in trouble if they mark it down early.

      My local Walgreens in Commerce, GA has a few candy items already marked down.  I got 4 bags of Pretzel M&Ms marked down to $2.19 each.  Used (2) $1/2 from insert, and the Wags Booklet Coupon in the April edition for another (2) $1/2.  Made them about $1.10 per bag.  I love those pretzel m&m’s!

      Salisbury, NC Walgreens had a few things marked down, but not significantly.  Some plush toys, coconut filled Russel Stover eggs, coconut & pretzel M&M’s, and Nestle NestEggs which I would have bought but even with the coupon I had and the sale price, it just wasn’t as cheap as I wanted it to be.

      Lowe’s has Easter lilies for 50 cents!   This is in Loganville, Georgia–don’t know if it is all Lowe’s, but got 6 plants for $3.00!

      My Mom’s Ingles had the Cadbury Eggs marked down to .49 each and I didn’t have my coupons with me that day so I decided to check my local Ingles. They had them marked down to .33 each and also had the Reeses Easter Eggs for the same. I was so excited because my coupons were for .30 on 2 and if they doubled that would have made them .03 each!!! Well that was too good to be true and they refused to take my coupons saying that if they were marked down they did not accept coupons because they would not get paid back. I told the manager checking me out that was completely nuts and I would just take my business to Kroger because they had them marked down as well.
