When Target marks things down when does the next markdown happen?

Went to Target today and they had all the Kung Zhu hamster stuff 30% off... and they had reduced the prices not to long ago-

My son planned to use his garage sale profits to purchase the Battle Arena for his hamsters he got for Christmas... it was $14 and there were only 5 of them so he got it today...

BUT the hamsters and armor were also on clearance- current price is $3.50 a hamster and $2.78 for the armor- I got two sets today as prizes for him (he's been working really hard volunteering at our new church building (he's 8 and has helped paint, build things, also been super helpful at home)...

Anyway, they had TONS of hamsters and armor, I would love to pick some up for my girls and some other kids for gifts, but figure they'll get priced down again, but we don't have much extra cash right now, so am hoping they get reduced to 50% next week? Should I check on Monday or wait til the end of next week?

Keep checking. Every store is different. Sometimes I go back a few days or even a week or two and its not marked down and other times its within a few days. And, sometimes one thing is marked down at one store one day and a week later at another or not at all.

Usually, Target stores are on a weekly markdown schedule. Sometimes items will get marked down every week, but often they are marked down after a couple of weeks--especially if they are only 30% off.

Many Target stores mark down the toys on Thursdays, so that is a good day to check. I have learned that if there is something good that I am stalking, it pays to go in early on Thursday morning.

Target has a mobile app that has daily deals and target weekly ad posted. You can get coupon alerts sent to your phone.

my target stores markdown on Friday mornings (sometimes Thursdays) It seems like a lot of times they sit at 30% off for a couple of weeks before being marked again.
