There may still be snow on the ground and low temperatures outside, but for retailers, it’s winter coat clearance time! We say bring on the sales — especially the deals on winter coats. Outerwear can get so expensive, especially when you’re having to buy for kids and get new sizes each year.
When should you start looking for winter coat clearance deals?
The best winter clearance sales for coats are in January, February, and March. Although there’s still use for a winter coat during these months, stores are trying to clear their shelves of all winter items to make room for new spring merchandise.
Retailers are also trying to get rid of all of the leftover inventory of items they stocked up on during the holidays. Which means big savings for you! We’re talking winter coats on clearance for up to 75% off — sometimes more.
Always check for winter coat clearance deals in January, February, and March at these stores:
- Dick’s Sporting Goods
- Gap & Gap Factory
- Old Navy
- Nordstrom Rack
- T.J.Maxx (and their sister stores, like Marshalls and Sierra)
Best Gap & Gap Factory Winter Coat Clearance Deals
Starting in January, Gap has clearance winter coats for an extra 40% – 50% off. It’s also smart to check out the deals at Gap Factory, who has their own line of clothing styles — not just regular Gap’s overstock. Not only are the prices lower at Gap Factory, but they also offer additional savings that cut the prices down even further.
For a limited time, you can get an extra 65% off clearance items on Gap Factory when you use the promo code GFLAYER at checkout.

Best Kohl’s Winter Coat Clearance Deals
For winter coat clearance deals at Kohl’s, you’ll see those pop up more in February, March, and April — with the sweet spot (and best selection) happening sometime in March. Plan to stack up any Kohl’s Cash you’ve earned to make your out-of-pocket cost even lower.
Kohl’s carries many name brands like Columbia, Nike, Under Armour, Koolaburra by Ugg, and more. So not only are you getting a good deal, but you’re getting a brand you already know about.
We’ve seen kids’ Columbia sherpa jackets for $21 (regularly $60), Madden Girl junior’s puffer jackets for $40 (regularly $80), and packable quilted jackets for as low as $20 during Kohl’s winter coat clearance sales.
Best JCPenney Winter Coat Clearance Deals
JCPenney has winter coat clearance deals from January through April. Like Kohl’s, their best deals happen in March. In 2022 we saw discounts on men’s, women’s, and kids’ jackets hold steady at 70% – 88% off.
Best Nordstrom Rack Winter Coat Clearance Deals
Keep an eye out for Nordstrom Rack’s Clear the Rack sale in January for an extra 25% off winter coats. You can shop the sale online or in stores, but it’s not a once-a-year thing — we see Nordstrom Rack’s Clear the Rack event take place about two to five times a year.
During the sale, you’ll get an extra 25% off red-tag clearance prices. But if you’re looking for winter coat clearance items, shop the sales in January through March. Our best advice is to aim for 75% savings, but even 50% savings is awesome for some higher-end brands at Nordstrom Rack. Here’s a look at some of the best winter clearance sale steals we’ve seen from past Clear The Rack events:
- Kids’ Puffer Jackets, starting at $11.22 (72% off)
- Kate Spade Hooded Quilt Jackets, $73.09 (69% off)
- Levi’s Faux Fur Quilted Bomber Jackets, $22.48 (88% off)
Best Dick’s Winter Coat Clearance Deals
You’ll want to shop Dick’s Sporting Goods’ outerwear sales in March for the best winter coat clearance selection and the best prices. The winter clearance at Dick’s starts in January and continues through March. Clearance deals will start at 30% off on top brands like The North Face, Columbia, and Patagonia. But by mid-to-late February, clearance prices will reach 50% off on The North Face and Columbia.
Some of these clearance prices are available online, but there’s always a better clearance selection in stores. Dick’s will have clearance racks in every department. You’ll also find items with colored stickers that give you additional discounts. The longer these products sit on the rack, the higher the additional discount.
If you’re lucky enough to have a Dick’s Sporting Goods Warehouse Location near you, definitely check out their selection of winter coats. They’ll usually offer 70% off hundreds of styles.

T.J.Maxx doesn’t do special promos or sales, but they do offer a Winter Clearance Event twice a year — once in January and again in August. While you won’t see any percent-off sale signs, you will see a slew of yellow-tag and red-tag merchandise across the store.
Swing into the store in January to check through loads of newly marked-down winter clearance items. You can also shop the winter clearance online at TJMaxx.com. Shipping is free on orders of $89 or more, or sign up for emails to get free shipping on your first order with no minimum purchase.

Walmart Winter Coat Clearance Deals
