Decipher hidden discount codes on store price tags.
Store tags. They’re not just there to look nice. In preparation for sales, shop staff usually scribble numbers, letters or dots on price tags. Its a sale, the retailer isn’t going to re-tag every item is it? Take a close look and if you spot anything on the tag that resembles this, Id hold off, It may just about to be reduced in the next upcoming sale.
We’ve seen comments online that this is system is likely used at Next, Monsoon and River Island.
So while inspecting the tags won’t guarantee a bargain, as don’t forget, the item could always sell out, it sometimes pays just to hold that extra couple of days.
Check the numbers.
Large retailers sometimes use price codes to secretly communicate to staff which models need to be shifted quickly to make way for new stock.
looking online the key to these codes lies in the last digit of a price. While most prices end in 9, if one ends in 7 or 8 it usually means that model has been discontinued. If the price ends with a 1, the item is often especially old clearance stock.
Haggling on the internet?
Many online retailers now offer an online chat feature. Use it to you advantage and haggle to your hearts content.
Now we would suggest asking a couple of questions about the product your interested in before maybe suggesting you can buy somewhere else cheaper or just stalling over the price.
This wont get you the biggest savings but the chances are you may get a discount code or some other incentive to buy there and then.
Every penny counts.
