Final clearance that’s really clearance

Remember when Linens ‘N’ Things announced they were closing and that everything was on clearance, and how that “clearance” was, like, 15% off?

That was sort of dumb.

But now (how many months later?), now they’re really having everything on clearance. Remaining inventory is all 50% to 75% off original prices, and so now is the time to scoop up a deal or two.

Just keep in mind that everything is Final Sale, at this point, so don’t buy anything you’re not positive you won’t want/need to return.


  1. I saw a local news report about how LNT* RAISED prices before giving their big Going Out of Business discount. Sure enough…the shower curtain I purchased had a lower priced tag under the top sticker. Buyer beware.

  2. Yes, that’s unfortunately Standard Operating Procedure with many liquidators. I know the brick-and-mortar sales have been really disappointing. Saw a few things online that seemed like genuine bargains, today, though.

  3. As sad as the discounts were before, the store closest to me was already really, really picked over. I wonder what is left now with REAL markdowns.

  4. Watch the shipping costs. It wasn’t worth it to me to complete my checkout when the cheapest shipping I was offered was $34 for a $15 sale. Nothing in that bunch was big or heavy, either.

  5. Excellent, two lamp shades, sale price, with buy one get one free deal, and free shipping = under $10. Not bad, thanks Mir! 🙂

  6. I got some adorable decorative pillows for my daughters room that were regularly $30 each, buy one get one free for $7.49 and a lampshade for $6.49, free shipping. So, my total for 2 nice decorative pillows and a lampshade was $20-ish! Thanks for posting 🙂

  7. It appears if you’re not buying something from the free shipping section, they really gouge you on the shipping price. They wanted to charge me $56 to ship four pillows and two clothes drying racks! Yeah, I don’t think so.

  8. I’ll be very, very careful. I bought some nice tablecloths and cloth napkins at Thanksgiving. I’m hoping to score a few more sets of cloth napkins to get me through the year. That’s my new “green” goal.

  9. I scored 3 bathroom set items (trash can, toothbrush holder, lotion pump) and 2 lamp shades (buy one get one free) from the free shipping section, so I got all of it out the door for under $18. Thanks! I’ve been wanting some new bathroom stuff, and I hate the lampshade in our living room (but they’re normally so expensive!).

  10. Shame they’re charging so much to ship the other items, though. I saw a few things I wanted (like a shower curtain to go with the new bathroom items) but no way am I going to pay a bunch of extra money to ship it when they could just throw it in the box with the other items. Oh well, I’ll just keep my money and buy a new curtain locally.

  11. The shipping was $12.99 for all of my order – I think it was a fairly standard price, since it didn’t change when I added items. They had a 10X lighted mirror for $10, so the plates I got as well and the shipping totalled to just under $30. Not too bad, methinks.

  12. Yeah, I tried going to that sale the other day. BOGO free on slipcovers, great, I have 2 wingback chairs I need to slipcover. They just happened to have them and it was $39 for two with one ‘free’. I put them in my shopping cart and head for the door. Shipping and handling? $22.99. Needless to say, LNT can keep their steenkin’ slipcovers. It wouldn’t cost $22.99 to ship 2 *sofa* slipcovers, much less 2 wingback chair slipcovers. Phbbtt!

  13. So I noticed a glitch with my order, and haven’t heard back from the online customer service, and the phone number for them is disconnected. Nice. I got a shipping confirmation, so hopefully they shipped the correct items. I hate to complain over a few bucks, but hey, that’s just poor business. You don’t completely shut down while still trying to make money off of people. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
