Ever find something on clearance and wonder whether you should buy it right then or wait to see if the item will be marked down again? Well you might be surprised to know that most stores use a secret tag system that indicates whether or not the item has hit it’s rock bottom price:
Check it out:
Target: If a clearance price ends in an 8, the item will be marked down again. If it ends in a 4 it has been marked down to it’s final price.
Gap & Old Navy: Clearance items that end in a 7, have hit their final markdown price.
Sears: Clearance items that end in $.88 have also hit their final markdown price. Items ending in $.97 mean the item is discontinued.
Home Depot: Clearance items that end in a 6 or have a green price sticker have hit their lowest price.
Now that you know these secrets, you can use this knowledge to make better buying decisions while you are out shopping!
