I am sorry they didn't give you the items for a penny.
There is something you can do about it if you chose to. The answer for you is in the post that Liz had just given you. To do justice to the stores and to the deals we post, it is best to read what to do and then decide which course of action you want.

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.
I found sleeping clothes for kids yesterday and followed your advice of checking for items from previous years. Some of the items were from as far back as F09 and rang up regular price. I was completely shocked! I noticed that none of the items had any colored dots or symbols of any kind. Everything I price checked had the 09, 10, or 11 in the tag. Cashier quickly got irritated with me asking for price checks after my 2nd request and kept repeating the symbols that were on sale for 85% off.

Whatyaneed?

I think we've already figured out through our discussion that there usually has to be a symbol with the numbers. I'm sorry if my post steered you in the wrong direction and the cashier became irritated. I'll edit my post for clarity.

If we keep bouncing ideas off of each other I think we will eventually figure it out. I hope...

Thanks. I kinda figured out that trend myself when I noticed no symbol :-). I must have missed that info in the thread....it has gotten very long lately due to all the great finds everyone has gotten. Your info was very helpful because I find it hard to search using pictures. For some reason my 3G Internet coverage shuts down as soon as I go past the registers in every dollar general I go in.

Mine too! I can't even get a phone call inside the store or even a text unless I go up to the front door.
