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.
