The ad says there is a huge manufacturer buyout on cleaning supplies. I saw a few of the included items when I was there on Saturday, but I was unimpressed. They had box after box of Tide Powder priced at $11.94. I cannot remember the size, but that was not a closeout price, in my opinion. I also saw tons of Palmolive Dish Soap for $2 – again, I cannot recall the size. I should have paid closer attention – darn!
I also saw a huge selection of Dan River and Tommy Hilfiger bath towel sets. These were both better quality sets including a bath and hand towel, and two washcloths for $10. Again, the price was too high for me. For a Tommy Hilfiger set, it was well priced.
Summer patio supplies and accessories are 30% off.
And since you generally wonder what I DO buy, I picked up two Sealy pillows for $8 each and about 10 cans of Campbell’s Spaghettios with meatballs for $0.95 each.
There are a few good items to price match at Walmart & Target (both stores will match competitor ad prices) with your Big Lots ad. But before you head over to either store, make sure yours will match Big Lots. Some stores feel that because Big Lots offers closeout merchandise they can offer it at substantially lower prices than regular retail. I haven’t heard too many stories about Walmart, so that may be your best bet to try and score these deals.
Why price match?
Big Lots doesn’t accept manufacturer coupons, but Target and Walmart do. With that in mind, you can get closeout prices AND use coupons for additional savings at both of those stores. Also, make sure you join the Big Lots Buzz Club Rewards program if you plan to shop there as well. You’ll be rewarded for every 10 purchases of $25 or more with a one time use 20% savings pass. This is excellent if you need big ticket items like a mattress, bed, couch or something like that. It’s equally as good if you’d like to purchase closeout priced food and toiletries!
