Ends in 4? It's the final markdown
According to Atwater Village Newbie, savvy shoppers can tell when an item at Target has been marked down to its lowest price based on the last digit:
Full prices end in 9. Every time Target discounts, the final digit of the price drops. The lowest the final digit will go is 4. If you see something you want and the price ends in 4, buy it. You won't get it for less.
Apparently, Target has set markdown levels of 25%, 50%, 75%, and 90% off. A price ending in "4" should also be part of the 90% off level.
But don't wait until you see the magic "4" at the end of the price. An ex-employee on Consumerist once warned, "Rule of thumb, 75% is the lowest you'll see an item at."
Thanks for the tip, Alex
