Decipher hidden discount codes on store price tags

Store tags can be a hidden information treasure trove. In preparation for sales, shop staff scribble numbers, letters or dots on price tags. If you see these mysterious markings on a full-price item you want to buy, hold off – it means that the item’s about to be reduced. People say that this particular system widely used at Next, Monsoon River Island. Here’s what to look for and how to make sense of the shop workers’ notes, so you can get a head-start before the sales officially begin.

Keep an eye on shop layouts too

The shops often arrange clothes by color or this season’s look, rather than categories such as jeans and tops – a technique designed to drag you deeper into the store. However, a few days before a sale, staff often re-sort garments by type. So if you spot them fiddling with the racks, wait before purchasing.

Many high street shops give 10% off, just asking

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with asking for a discount. In fact, it’s built into some shops’ official policies. A former member of staff at one big DIY store even told Martin they’d been told if anyone asks for a discount, just to give 10% off. So feel free to ask for a coupon code or discount before shopping.

Find the best day to bag deals for your shop

Found something you want to buy online, but can’t find a discount code? Don’t despair. Try waiting until Tuesday or Wednesday, then checking our Discount or Coupon page again. The most popular day was Wednesday (13 deals launched), closely followed by Tuesday (12).  In fact, 50% of them started working on a Tuesday or Wednesday. The third most popular day was Monday. Retailers presumably do this so they’re ready in good time for the weekend. Hot deals may come out every day, so it’s always worth checking Vouchers, Hot Bargains, Sales, Coupon, Discount sites.

  • Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
