Even if you’re not a full-time shopaholic, you can appreciate the occasional trawl through your favorite store’s clearance section. There’s something about stocking up on inexpensive finds that feels so satisfying, especially when you locate once-in-a-lifetime deals on the best brands. Recently, I had the familiar itch to doom-scroll the T.J. Maxx clearance section for spring dresses, and I’m so glad that I did.
We all know that T.J. Maxx has some of the best scented candles and activewear, but you won’t believe the treasure trove of finds currently listed on the site—I’m talking about finds like Moschino slides for up to 73% off. Browse through these deals to score deep discounts on brands like All-Clad and The North Face.
The best T.J. Maxx clearance finds
Merino wool crewneck sweater
If you missed the sweater sale at Vineyard Vines, you’ll want to scoop up this merino wool crewneck sweater before it sells out. A generous discount of 73% off the original price makes this one of the best finds in the T.J. Maxx clearance section. The kitten-soft merino wool and cashmere blend offers a cozy textile to wrap up in during rainy weather.
Since the style is sold out at Saks, it’s worth grabbing one before it’s gone for good. Trust me—you don’t want to miss out on this plush style, especially at such an unbeatable price.
Vince Camuto leather Kelsey tote
The bestselling Vince Camuto leather Kelsey tote is at T.J. Maxx—and the price is the best we’ve seen from any retailer at a savings of 60%. Add this stylish tote to your work bag rotation ASAP. A supple pebbled leather finish looks polished, and five interior pockets add ample room for chapstick and keys.
Need a lot of space? The Kelsey tote has you covered with a 13-inch width that can fit your favorite paperback, wallet and even a tablet.
Zodiac mirror chain necklace
Don’t shop out your BBF’s birthdate candle by itself—tack on this gorgeous zodiac mirror chain necklace, too. Available for a staggering 50% off, the necklace features a stunning mirrored gold chain with oval links. Hanging by the chain is your choice of zodiac sign in striking 14K gold.
The 18-inch chain hits perfectly just below the collarbone, so it’s ideal for an array of blouses, even those with high necks. Pick one up before your sign sells out.
The North Face printed Antora parka
While people are busy hunting for the best spring jackets, T.J. Maxx’s clearance section secretly slashed prices on The North Face’s printed Antora parka. Take advantage of the sale and scoop it up for next year’s snowfall. This lightweight jacket hits at the hip, providing ample protection from the elements.
Lightweight and packable, the Antora parka is perfect for hitting the slopes or hitting the grocery store. Pop it in your cart and enjoy a rare 36% discount.
Vince Camuto quilted hardside spinner set
The T.J. Maxx clearance page has some of the best luggage deals right now, including this Vince Camuto quilted hardside spinner set that’s available at a savings of $144. This three-piece nesting set includes a carry-on, along with medium and large-sized suitcases.
Water-resistant quilted faux leather looks stunning when paired with the silver Vince Camuto logo on the front. The signature is peppered throughout the fully lined interior for an upscale vibe. You’ll feel spiffy running through the airport with this set. Snag it ahead of travel season.
All-Clad copper core fry pan
If you’re new to All-Clad, I recommend finding your first piece from the Factory Seconds sale or in T.J. Maxx’s clearance section. While this All-Clad copper core fry pan is slightly blemished, it’s still one of the best fry pans on the market.
Stainless steel is one of the safest cookware materials, offering superior searing power to nonstick counterparts. The secret copper core maximizes heat retention, so steaks brown evenly and dinners turn out perfect every time. All-in-all, All-Clad pans are well worth splurging on. A $65 discount seals the deal.
Faux suede shacket
Whether you’re working or headed to brunch with your friends, swap your boring blazer for this trendy faux suede shacket at a savings of 62%. It hits at the thigh and provides ample coverage for leggings. A lightweight, packable fabric makes this a go-to for travel. Pop it on over a loungewear set for a fashionable flight, or pair it with jeans for a brisk walk downtown.
Either way, you’ll love the look (and the price).
Satin notch pajama set
Resembling our favorite Cozy Earth pajamas, this satin long-sleeve loungewear set includes a silky smooth satin top with a fun floral print. The matching bottoms are generously sized for a comfy fit. Slip into this cooling set after a long day to feel like a million bucks on a budget—get your own for $60 off.
Alpaca and silk blend throw
Cuddle up with this alpaca and silk blend throw for a nap experience that rivals even the fluffiest duvets. You won’t believe you secured it at a savings of 55%. This light-as-a-cloud blanket is a blend of butter-soft alpaca fleece and lush silk. Slide underneath with your Kindle Paperwhite for a sumptuous evening of warmth and luxury—just try not to fall asleep before you finish the chapter you’re reading.
Online shopping tips
Watch for hidden designers
There are a few tricks to finding the best deals on the T.J. Maxx clearance page. First, always pay attention to the designer. Oftentimes popular or high-end brands have a “reveal designer” tag. This makes it easy to spot quality finds at a glance.
If you love it, buy it
This seems self-explanatory, but let me explain. Unlike retailers like Walmart or Amazon, T.J. Maxx doesn’t always restock items that sell out, even if they’re not on final clearance. Secure your finds ASAP if you don’t want to miss out for good.
Check out specialty shops
The specialty shops—like the vacation shop—show what’s currently on-trend. Oftentimes, you’ll find some of the best potential savings hidden in those categories.
In-store shopping tips
Run the track
T.J. Maxx employees recommend shopping the “track” first. The track is easy to spot—it’s the curated racks in the middle of the store. What’s available differs at every store, but oftentimes you’ll find the most popular products and best savings on display.
Watch for “J” months
In terms of when to shop, January and June are some of the best times to scour the sale section, since that’s when the biggest markdowns occur.
Don’t sleep on yellow tags
Lastly, keep an eye out for tag colors. White price tags are regular merchandise, while red price tags show that an item is on clearance. Yellow price tags indicate the final clearance price. Add yellow-ticket items to your cart ASAP—they won’t restock.
