Codes in stores that alert you to sales!

The founder of rather-be-shopping.com says it’s actually possible to predict and find out which items are about to go on sale.

The secret is in the way that items are priced. Here’s what he has found:


Sears
Prices ending in $0.99: you’ll be paying full retail price
Prices ending in $0.97: the price of a discontinued item on clearance, but price could go down even further.
Prices ending in $0.88: the final markdown price

Target
Prices ending in $0.99: full price.
The prices of some items may end in 8 or 4, such as $7.88 or $7.24, which typically indicates that the items are on clearance.

JCPenney
Prices ending in $0.00: full price.
Prices ending in $0.99: clearance and sale price
Prices ending in $0.97: clearance or 'reduced' items

Costco
Prices ending in $0.99: full price.
Prices ending in $0.97: clearance
Odd pricing like those that end in a 79¢, 49¢, 89¢ and others are usually regular priced merchandise.
Also, look to see if there is an asterisk * on the upper right side of the sign. If you see one, it means this item is not being reordered and what ever stock they have in the store will be sold and not replaced.

American Eagle
Price ending in $0.95: This is full price.
Prices ending in $0.99 or $0.00: This is a clearance price and the best price

Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic
Prices ending in $0.47, $0.49, $0.97 or $0.99: The item is marked as clearance or discontinued and is probably the best price
Keep an eye out for further discounts. The chains offer 40% every Wednesday which takes the clearance prices every lower.
At the GAP, items ending in .97 are final sale, non-returnable. It's not advertised, or advised, just in the small print at the very bottom of your receipt - seen AFTER you've purchased the item.

Home Depot
Prices ending in a 6: 6 weeks to go until the next price change. These are often printed on a yellow tag, but not always.
Prices ending in a 3: If after 6 weeks the items haven't sold, they will be lowered to a price ending in 3. Then after 3 weeks, the item will be removed.

Office Depot
Prices ending in $0.00, $0.99, or $0.50: full price
Prices ending in everything except $0.00, $0.99, or $0.50:- these are you’re marked down items.

Pier 1 Imports
Prices ending in $0.95, $0.00: Full price
Prices ending in $0.98, $0.48: Clearance items

PetSmart
Prices ending in 9: Full price
Prices ending in 7: These are reduced to clear (but not always marked as clearance)

    chanel replica handbags-In a shallow baking dish, toss the strawberries with 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
