I picked up 7 rolls of gift wrap today at Wal-Mart for 50% off. I went to three Wal-Mart's and all still had a lot of holiday items. I also went to Dollar Tree, Target, CVS, and Walgreens which all had their holiday items at 50% off. I too wonder when things will hit 75% off. At that point, could you price adjust holiday items you bought at 50% off? Or is that a no-no?

You can not price adjust at Target (on seasonal stuff) but you can buy the exact item at 75% (if they still have it) then return that one with the receipt from the 50% off one. But that is a YMMV thing.

I have occasionally been able to return stuff bought more expensive and had mom behind me say she wanted it and they let her purchase at Target but not all CS reps allow that.

Any ideas when/if Sears will hit 75%? I saw a nice set of shatterproof ornaments and the perfect red tree skirt

Wal-Mart has gone down to 75% off in some areas. I hit up one today and got some ornaments and stocking stuffers for next year. :)

Our Walmart was still only 50% and they have a ton of stuff left. The entire garden department is still full. I hit up Walgreens too, ironically this was my best buy last year for wrapping supplies. They are only 50% still and really picked through. Except candy, they had a lot of 50% off candy. Our Target was 70% off today, and I got some ornaments and tissue paper there. The only wrapping paper they had left was Justin Beiber and no packs of boxes. Another item I usually get after Christmas for next year.

According to the employees at Walmarts in my area Christmas paper and ornaments (items still at 50% off) should be 75% off either Monday or Tuesday. This is in Chesapeake VA. I have stocked up on a lot of things for birthdays, 2012 stockings, and even next Christmas. I am still hoping to score a few things at Target if it goes to 90% if not that's okay too.

My Wal-Mart's still 50% but local Kmart dropped theirs to 75% yesterday. I bought a new tree skirt, some ornaments, outside tree and outside decorations. They had lots of stuff left. Candy was still 50% though.

Sears and Kmart both went 75% today. Kinda bummed the tree skirt me and mom's bff wanted from Sears was sold out but got a different all red one from Kmart. Managed to walk out of Kmart with only the 2 skirts, 2 packs of gold bows and 2 container of jungle bell ornaments:) We're set for the tree to be put up in either gold, red or silver next year. I think we may go red or silver since we're still missing a gold tree skirt/tree topper.

Walgreen's Christmas candy is 75% while their other things (decorations,cologne/makeup gift sets) are at "50% and more".

You need to post this in the WalMart thread :)
I'd say you were in the right place at the right time!
I've hit their Halloween clearance like that before and just kinda lost my mind lol

Shopko is 80% off . THey still had tons. I bought a lot of metallic wrapping paper and boxes. Using the metallic this year ruined me. I will never use cheap paper again. My sister bought the foil wrapped chocolates to freeze.

I know I got baskets last year after Christmas for 90% off but I don't think I've ever got any products at 90%.

Our Kmart is still 75% off. I bought my tree today. I've been looking for one a few years, but never hit the right time. I called and they said they had about a dozen trees left. I bought the most expensive one. It's a Jaclyn Smith 7.5 foot Sherman Pine with clear lights and a rotating stand. I am so excited. No more Charlie Brown real trees. I will go to pick it up Friday, didn't hve time yesterday. If they have marked theirs to 90 when I get there, I will just return it and rebuy at lower price.

My Kmart still had trees left yesterday. I was so surprised. You would think they would be gone at that price. I bought my 7.5 Martha Stewart prelit with color lights 2 years ago or I would have bought one at 90% off for sure.

My Lowes was taking an extra 75% off all christmas stuff today. I picked up outdoor full size fall and winter flags for $1 (originally 15.99). The wrapping paper holder was 2.24 (originally 8.98). I found the one set of LED dancing lights for 2.81 (marked 44.00 - rang up 75% off and he gave me another 25% off!).

All Christmas clearance is now a DIME at DG!
As you can imagine,there is precious little left,but I managed to find a 2 pack of curly ribbon bows (blue) which I can use throughout the year.
I got a chuckle out of buying Christmas stuff in February!
