to WUC and the Dollar Stores forum!

Sometimes they go back to full price. You never know it until you try it. The pink dots were/are pennied out but most likely have an 11 at the end. You didn't do anything wrong. We need to go by what we think will likely be a penny - everything seemed to be in the likely penny category: pink dot (symbol) and S10 (season/year). When we see that we just have to bite the bullet and scan it; sometimes it rings a penny sometimes it doesn't.

Check the list in the OP for what is confirmed a penny. There is also a pic thread in the Dollar General Clearance forum. Those may help.

I just left DG and the $18 Swiffer wet jet kits were 4.50! I had to grab 8-.25 Disney princess items to get my total up $2 more (for the overage on 4 kits)so I could use all 4-$5/1. I paid tax only. Woohoo!

Op stands for original post which is the very 1st post on page 1 looks like post below that I copied and pasted

Previous thread may still be accessed, but the second to last page has an error and will not open: http://www.weusecoupons.com/upload/d...find-here.html

'Master List' of confirmed items(will try to keep this list updated every few days)

Clothing:
*Mens and boys and women's Gray dot f11 or s11
*Womens, boys and men Pink dot f11 or sp12
*Blue, pink or gray dot shoes
*Pink dot purses
*socks/tights pink dot

*Tan Dot rugs and bath mats
*True Living antique brass finish Decorative Rod Set(upc 42437 99123)
*Benrus clocks(have BRC305 or BRC306 above barcode)
*Concepts watch/wallet/pen set(blue star original price $12)

*'Amazing value' items with A,B,C, or D under the price
*Green star satchel/messenger bags
*Disney pillow pals(larger ones-code below the UPC ends in 709 or SK# under the upc SK02-12/11L12974.)

As Seen on TV items:
*Forever lazy
*Forever Cuddlee
*Underbed Dual Organizer
*Hair Feather (clip on)
*Swivel Store Spice Rack*found in hardware section
*Bling It On
*Slice-O-Matic
*Perfect Bra

Games/electronics:

*ES total work out kit(original price $20)

*Blue Dot & Yellow Star electronics/games

Toys:
*Dorothy of Oz beauty set
*Brite Slapper fun watch(pink dot original price $5-has TGVOH12 or FTNGE12 above barcode)
*Happy Nappers sing-a-longs
*Puffer Worms(long ones have S12 on the tag)
*Yellow Star with F10 by the barcode
*Cars video game-Yellow star OP$40

**For pictures, please see thread link above. These are all a YMMV situation, as stores are supposed to have pulled these items already.

**For more information on penny deals or what you can do if you are refused, please see this thread:

FYI: Penny Items at Dollar General

**As of 8/23/13:
Purple dot housewares are 90%
Yellow dot & Green Star hanging apparel is 25%
Yellow dot & Green Star shoes and handbags are 50%
Green Dot housewares are 25%(towels, washcloths, etc..)
Summer toys are 50%

Okay. So, the REAL secret to this penny item thing is to look at the tag or the code by the barcode. Took me way too long for the epiphany,

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 in combination with a symbol. it's likely that it's a penny.

Edit to update: it seems to only work with numbers AND a symbol. Letter and number codes alone do not seem to follow the same pattern.

The Swiffer wet jets are part of the extra 50-70% off event happening now. There's a list of items and matchups in the first post of the 50-70% off last chance items thru 9/23 thread in the regular DG forum.

What is the difference on the swiffer wet jets that are clearanced and the reg priced ones? I have found several wet jets in stores around here but they are on a hook that is marked as $21 and have a new item tag on the shelf. I wonder if they are misplaced and how to tell the difference

I would love to have everyone else's dollar stores because none of the markdowns work here in my area. I've tried them all, codes, and color codes, etc, and none of them work. So I just pay whatever the price is as is. No special discounts are found throughout the whole entire store. Just count yourself lucky if you are able to get anything for less than a dollar at your store.
