Some retailers have secret codes that savvy shoppers can use to determine when merchandise is marked down to the lowest price possible.
So when someone allegedly spilled Target’s secrets on Pinterest, Team Clark wanted to know all about it!
Do not fall for this Pinterest hoax about Target’s sale items
According to multiple posts on the social media platform, Target prices ending in â€œ8â€ will be marked down again and those ending in â€œ4â€ represent the final price.
Several of the posts include a schedule of when items will be marked down, but there’s just one problem: It’s not true!
In a statement to Clark.com, a Target spokesperson said, â€œIt isn’t accurate that mark down dates for specific products or categories occur on specific days of the week.â€
And you don’t want to read too much into those prices that end in â€œ8â€ or â€œ4â€ either.
â€œThe ending digit of a clearance price is determined by several factors including the original retail price and the applied percentage discount,â€ the Target spokesperson said. â€œIt is not possible to determine the final markdown or timing of the price change from the item’s current price.â€
How to get the lowest price possible
According to AllThingsTarget.com, the best way to know that an item is at its lowest price is if it’s 70% off, however some seasonal items may be up to 90% off.
Also, pay particular attention to the end caps, where clearance items are often displayed.
