HOW TO SHOP WALMART CLEARANCE:
You may have seen people scoring insane Walmart Clearance Deals (especially if you are a member of my Walmart Clearance Shoppers Facebook Group) and wondered – How can I get those great deals? Well – let me tell you!
First things first:
The what: Walmart Clearance Shopping is going to Walmart and finding the best deals with both marked AND UNMARKED clearance!
The why: TO SAVE MONEY OF COURSE! You can get tons of everyday items on clearance at Walmart throughout the year. Buying items on clearance can save you 70-80 even 90+% off! Clearance shopping is the hottest way to save money – and A LOT OF IT!
Black Friday prices are nothing compared to clearance prices!
If you prefer online shopping, you can view all of our online Walmart deals here.
Now, on to the HOW:
FIRST: It is very important to know that not all Walmarts have the same prices. While this can be confusing when first starting out, don’t let it discourage you.
To check your local Walmarts pricing from home, you can use the Walmart app! Find an item that you want to check the price of and then enter the UPC of that item in the search bar. Once the item comes up in the app, click IN YOUR STORE or STORE AVAILABILITY. Under those options it will show you the price at YOUR store so you know before you go!
SECOND: SCAN, SCAN, SCAN (and scan some more)
- Even if casually clearance hunting at Walmart you should be scanning items that you are buying. The reason is you could be finding Walmart HIDDEN clearance (this is clearance that is NOT marked with a tag). Imagine buying an everyday item like deodorant, but when you scan you notice that instead of being $4 its actually 20 cents! You could buy TWENTY for the same price you would normally spend on 1 – and have plenty of stockpile for the months ahead – YASSSSS!!
TIP: Especially scan any thing with a clearance tag or sign. A lot of times the prices will be lower than marked. CHA CHING – hidden clearance!
TIP 2: Items in the center aisles at Walmart and end caps are usually seasonal items that may be around for a limited times. Its always good to price check these items as they rotate out stock and clearance out faster than everyday items in the regular aisle.
THIRD: DOWNLOAD THE WALMART APP! This should have been first maybe – but the Walmart app is going to be your Walmart Clearance Shopping BFF! It has a built in price checker that will show you the price of items in your store. This is how you find Walmart Hidden Clearance!
FOURTH: These are good y’all, maybe this should have been first too! Join my Walmart Clearance Shoppers Facebook Group. With over HALF A MILLION members – its a great place to see what others are scoring. One thing you can do is check the group daily to see what people are getting, if you spot any of those items in your store, scan them with the Walmart app and see if they are on clearance for you too!
START SMALL Y’ALL! You may see some huge, epic, amazing, super awesome clearance hauls that make you want to rush out and clearance shop. Know that the best items do tend to sell fast. By starting out small – perhaps just scanning the clearance aisle with your app – you can get the hang of clearance shopping and build up your skills to soon be posting those awesome hauls of your own.
MOST IMPORTANT: HAVE FUN! Clearance shopping is a real world scavenger hunt that can land you some serious savings on items that you use in everyday life. The more fun that you have doing this, the better you will get at it and the more you will find. ALL clearance shoppers strike out more times than they score, but those sweet sweet scores are worth it!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! I am addicted. I spent 3 hours testing it out and ended up with 170 items. 10 items were 1.00 or less and everything else was $0.03 and my total was $28.72. I was floored. I was skeptical at first if this was legit and worth the time. I will definitely be checking more often. This is an awesome way to help those in need on a limited budget,. THANK YOU..THANK YOU..THANK YOU!!

thanks Kendall, I have been with my love at the hospital. He has acute CHF. His lungs are a mess. I ran into some one who bought a pair of Crocs for five dollars, at Walmart. In the garden section, where clearance items can be found. When I get my monthly income, they bare some investigating. I tried Croctober, but didn’t win. This is the time of year, I feel the absence of family. Now that Ken has been labeled terminal, it’s all adding up on me. I have counted on you for years, and you always come through. Thanks again for great advice.

I just did my biggest and best Walmart clearance find yesterday. The haul would have normally been $179.48 but I spent $36.99. I got eight packs of 10 pair of socks for women for $2 each, originally $9.97. I also three 17 piece bath sets originally $21.87 but I paid $5 for two of them and $5.49 for the third. I also got both my daughter’s wallets originally $7.97 but I paid $.75 each. Also two hats originally $4.97 but I paid.50. I got my grandson some slippers for $1. I was super excited as I had been looking for the women’s socks for a few weeks. The bath sets were not marked and I just happened to scan them. Not all in the section were on clearance but I took all that were. I usually check the Walmart app but alot of the time the store doesn’t have what the app says it does.

The info you give about walmart is great, I never knew that you could scan prices on their app. I am gonna do exactly that when I’m finished here. AND THANK YOU IFOR ALL THE INFORMATION THAT YOU SHARE. A FRIEND IN DEED.
I can not figure out how to use the scanner on the Walmart app. When I scan an item it goes to my cart, it doesn’t ask me if I want to check my store. How do I get that to work?
Trish M. says
