i have been reading every post, but still went to T unprepered and waisted lots of time.
i see it as a "learning curve"
for example, i just glanced over the deals, and did ot have specifics with DPCI# to look for correct item.
so i realy needed some nicer plastic plates and went several times to check for those items and no luck.
today I spend little more time looking at those solo plates, and found only one that was green, and when scanned it showed INF. -great right- i got one.
when i was at the register, line supervisor was checking me out, and she used her little device to find out price and inputed $2.99.
i asked her to take the item off, because i did not want it at that price, and since that was xmas item AND was showing INF already, that item WAS 90%, just lost in the stock.
SHE CHANGED THE PRICE AND GAVE IT TO ME FOR $0.30
Also out of 3 T in my area, 2 are slower with clearence that the one closer to me.
also as far as "limited stock" i learned my lesson in that field as well.
BW frame was showing limited stock- i went there, searched and found none in the isle.
next day, i was browsing SD and checked inventory for BW frames, and same store was still showing limited stock. I called ASAP and gave DPCI and girl found 2 in the back. I quickly asked for her name first, and then asked to hold those for me. She told me that the policy does not allow to hold clearenced item and i asked to check with supperior for an exception b/ i was there day before, nobody could find one, and i would be there in 20 min, and do not want an employe to "buy" while i am on my way.
she checked and got approval and i picked last 2 boxes in my area.....
This sometimes works: Take the set to a Target employee with a PDA gun, and ask very nicely if he or she would tell you the last price on the item. (And take the advice of another SD'er here---remember their name from the badge.) At the register, tell the cashier, "____(employee's name) said the last price was $________." Good luck and let us how it goes!
unfortunately this technique doesn't work w/ seasonal markdowns. when seasonal goes INF the pda's last price will be the full price. i believe they re-use those particular dpci's.
i would go w/ the other suggestion, "My friend bought one yesterday for $4.99 and they were in the Christmas clearance section for 90% off."
Thanks so much! I just couldn't understand why my Target's were so different than others. I had been lurking on other blog sites, turns out slickdeals is the only one I need to pay attention to!
I'm located more north central. Went to 3 different stores... all 30/50, and all seem to have different clearance variety.
That's just how it is. I can be in Manchester's, Winsdor's, Newington or New Britain and find the prices are extremely different and even clearance will vary a lot. Plus this area has a lot of competition. They don't always go 70 on the same day either.
