FA - Fall
WI - Winter
SP - Spring
SU - Summer

10 - 2010
11 - 2011
12 - 2012
13 - 2013

So, if you find an item with a tag that has FA10 under the barcode chances are it will be pennied out. That's because the FA10 means Fall 2010. I think sometimes the seasons are out with just one letter, too, so S11 is something from Spring or Summer 2011. Bet that one is a penny, too.

Get it? While the colored dots are important, it's the number that is the real key to finding penny items. If you see a yellow star toy but it says FA13 it means Fall 2013 and it will be full price.

So, watch for the last numbers - 10, 11, 12 at the end it's likely that it's a penny.
Maybe, maybe not.

I finally ran across some pink dot onesies the other evening and was quite excited. I've already donated the DG ones, but I remember all the penny ones had the pink dot and I know one of them said "what happens in daycare stays in daycare". I also tried some onesies that just had the SU 11 without the dot, etc. and they were all full price. However, I did score a blue Disney onesie with Donald Duck on the front that said "Cranky" and a two piece Sponge Bob pajama set. Both had S12 and the pink dot on the tag. So I really think the pink dot has to be there for the item to be a penny. Although I also think onesies with tags dating back to 2010 & 2011 should be pennied out. Logically. YMMV.

I think she meant the the year along with the colored dots is what the key is. There are new items that have pink dots and FA13 on them. They of course, won't ring up a penny. However, pink dots with FA12 or FA11 should ring a penny.

Just trying to find order amongst the chaos. I KNOW there has to be some rhyme or reason to this thing. I think we need to have somewhere from which to start looking for these items. Especially since they recycle the symbols so we can't rely upon them alone - which we already knew. I'm just trying to find something to make this penny hunt less of a try it and see to more of a well, I see that this has a symbol and an F09. This is much more likely to ring as a penny than this other item over here with a star with F13.

That's it in a nutshell. The key is that it needs to be from previous seasons in order for it to be a penny. It seems they codify using the first letter or two of the season with the year and slap a symbol on it. Maybe it has to have a symbol, maybe it doesn't. I just think if we have a good idea of what it is on a tag that we need to look for we can find new things and rely less upon seeing the pics of the items. Pics help, but I'd rather be actively looking rather than passively waiting for someone else to post, KWIM?

I can agree with that. I know that I've tried some onesies with 2011, don't remember if it was fall, spring, or summer coding, with a gray star that did not ring up a penny. In that case, I was told that DG Corporate sets the prices. But I would still think if it's a 2011 item, it will penny out eventually. Right?

I've also found items with just the season(s) & year(s)--2010, 2011, etc. that did not have a colored dot, star, etc. which were not pennied out.

to WUC and the Dollar Stores forum! If they are Disney and the number below the barcode ends in 709 then they are a penny. Take a look in the picture thread - I think there are it's of the tag in there.

I wonder how they recycle the items... Or, how they pick and choose which to penny out. Perplexing in the least.
