Since I am an OD junkie (not overdosing junkie) I figured it needed to be refreshed....however, I don't have the time to update as hevnsnt was so diligently doing....I will update but not as often.......I have trolled the latest posts and picked the best deals and updated the list....IM me if something big needs to be added.....Z

BTW...Alot of these items will not be found, as the original thread was over a month old!

In my experience.....and I have alot with OD....I will look for something at stores and not find the items....go back a week later and it's there....I don't know if they are just slow to find the items or maybe the slower stores ship to the busier stores.

Post any new deals that are found here.
Make sure to realize that all deals are not being found in all OD's.
Also Taking your spouse to OD everyday for a month is not recommended. =)

This list is so dead, a few items 'might' show up in a few stores, but don't count on any discount beyond 11 cents off (changes the $.99 to $.88 which means don't restock).

Out of the half dozen stores convient to me in Orange county Calif. only one ever seems to have "anything" clearanced. Most have tags but no stock, and quite a few have no discount or the cheesy $19.99 goes to $19.88.

Think about it, this list and others like it have been posted online since the first part of Jan. in the most deal hungry web sites, and you want to know if its in every store or online? OD has no online inventory checking of stores (that I know of anyway) and calling around totally sucks, as all it does is alert employees to deals which they grab themselves.

There are a "few" deals still in stores, nothing is online, and NOBODY in any threads I have seen yet is telling about which stores are good for deals, with only a few talking about which suck.

If you want one of these deals, make yourself a list and don't put this forum etc. anyplace on it. Now start trolling OD stores and see what you find. Out of two dozen trips I have 3m tape, some plastic boxes, boxes of old printer ribbons and weird ink cartridges, pens, paper, and some nifty Windows 3.1 pocket guides. YMMV


Dec 10, 1999
um, go to officedepot.com, use their storefinder... it lists stores, you call stores.. u find out if they have stock! Isn't that amazing?


Jan 6, 2001

Amazing? Yes! An amazing way to make sure the employee finds out about the deal and grabs it first.


Dec 10, 1999
well .. the store finder also lists addresses.. go @#% down there and look for the sh*t u want.

My store has the HP printer but for $300. :( Should I get it in the hopes that they have to reduce it to $88 by the end of the quarter (next 2 weeks)?



Jan 6, 2001
Zuc: that's what I did. Too bad there wasn't much to get excited about.

I had a hard time finding $20 worth of stuff that I wanted so I could use the coupon.

Stingy: I would definitely hope. One way or another, all stores will be getting rid of their stock in the clearance items. I don't know if their schedule is to be cleared out by the end of the quarter, but it makes sense. It's up to the store manager how deep they want to cut the prices and when.

Hey Folks:

My perspectives:

1.) By definition B&M (Brick and Mortar for the newbies who seem to have most of the questions) stores have unpredictable inventories of items to clearance: no point in asking what stores specific clearance items are at: ya just gotta do the legwork.

2.) Sometimes, you'll get a righteous manager who will check out a deal you ask about and make SOME accomodation: Last week I went to a CompUSA in the Bay Area looking for a $39.88 Antec KS282 case like I read about on these forums. The Manager said the cases he had were not clearanced, but he did sell me one for $49.88. I was happy. Again ya gotta be there to ask.

Good Hunting

My store has tons of these things on the clearance shelf, but the prices are no where near these... Me thinks my local OD is trying to rip ppl off...


Jan 6, 2001
bump, Has anyone had any trouble accessing OD, I have been trying since 11:00PM last night to no avail, Thanks, John:(

yawl are killing me... alright, since no one wants to revisit old threads to find HOW it should actually be done, i'll post a lunch some of my strategies
edit: changed my mind--anybody interested--pm me--phooey to lurkers
i will say old pro is exactly right tho--it's just like those spy movies--verify the dead deal! kick it a few times, check it for shallow breathing! don't sit up in your mansion playing with the underground missile and wait for your lackeys to report back to you! GET OFF your fat added and find out for yourself!
good luck

I suppose it's up to the local manager how much, and when items go into clearance.

I got 2 different types of the Audiovox 2 way radios a few days ago.
One store had the plain set, marked down to $23.88 for the pair.
Another, had the set with bateries, and charger, for $29.88.

Found store 3, with the same stock, and neither of these were on clearance yet. Ill go back in a few days to see if they are lower.

Sometimes you have to take them up to the cashier and have them scanned to see the correct price. Our local stores still have the 200 pack of shipping airbags listed as $18+ on the shelves, but they check out at $.92.
