UPDATE: Check out, “More Price Tag Codes Decrypted.”
A reader writes in with an interesting, potentially true, unconfirmed tip about Target’s pricing.
- Target’s full prices end in 9. So the first price tag will be $14.99 or $27.99, something like that.
Then, every time Target discounts the product, the final digit of the price drops.
The lowest the last digit will drop is 4.
If you see something you want at Target and the price ends in 4, buy it. The price won’t go any lower.
Yes, this tip makes us happy. We know what you’re doing Target. We’re on to you. —MEGHANN MARCO
