Thread Details

(At one time this thread was rated -5 only because of trashing by SD members which was subsequently cleaned up by moderator. See post #10)

Ryobi router table Model A25RT07, UPC 033287140992, Item 933016, for easy shelf ID the box boldly reads 392 sq inch working surface. Rang up as a penny.

updated title 3/21/10 to include more than just one cent items as some have taken liberty to post general finds, which is fine.

Would like to see that memo. Why on earth would they do that? They are still making money on the item at the .03 level - otherwise there wouldn't be such a level.

A "Loss Leader", as you refer to, is an item used in advertising/promotion.

It is intentionally priced low and used as a "sacrifice" to draw people into the store in hopes they will buy more, not an item that they will only see the low price on once already in the store.

I don't think this applies in this situation.
I don't recall ever seeing an item advertised (outside of the store setting) at it's .03 price.

definitely NOT making money at .03 level. Always a Loss. .03 is usually 66-75% clearance markdown. Maybe nordstrom marks up their prices that much but not hd. Even at the .06 level they usually dont make money on it, but it depends on what it is.


It's not that hard to look up the cost of an item.

Well, no, but I was just merely using that as an example to combat the "they're selling it, so they must be making money" idea.

I always enjoy when people quote Wikipedia - like its some sort of gospel. Anyway - I'm familiar with the term. This is not one of those cases. Thanks for playing.

Cool, you're still wrong though... clearance stuff is sold at a loss at the $.03 price to free up inventory space. Just because it's being sold, doesn't mean they're making money on it. Thanks for playing

I don't have access to their POS system so I can't say it's always a loss for them. I think we would be surprised to see the markup.

I have nothing to prove to you. But just because you claim it's true doesn't make it true.

What's their cost for item 755231? I know the .03 level price.
