Agreed, not a good printer. It's been $29.98 for the last 2 weeks at my target. Still has 12 or so there. No one bothering to buy it even at this price. Besides, it's been less several times AC at different office stores.

Yeah, but $29 for all four 69 series inks is a great deal.

ok buy printer for 25$ take ink out turn into Staples for a 610 for 50$ plus have an extra set of ink which is worth $59.00 then return the cartridges for an additional $12.00 not bad deal at all!

Thanks for agreeing with me. Thats exactly what I would do.
I use a Workforce 500 myself and am very happy with it. I never buy ink for it because the printer has been in clearance for almost 6 months now at Officemax and now at Target. I run through a full set of cartridges every week so I guess I need 4 printers a month. Don't ask me why but I hate using laser printers so I am sticking with my Workforce 500 for now. May switch to 610 when it breaks-down.

Most likely b/c the person is hiding the items until it gets to 75% off. That's why I check all the "hiding places" and have followed the "fleabayers" around to find their spots and plunder them each time I'm there. They never learn....and easy to spot..they go in most every morning shortly after opening. If they are "late" it's b/c they hit another Target in the area first to essentially steal from Target by hiding the items.

Being naive and honest, where would you hide stuff? As I said, I frequent 4 different ones and track things as they go down in price. All 4 have different markdown schedules (which is nice) so if I miss one store I can usually get it later at different stores. I guess you could try and hide it behind bigger items and such, but not sure if that would consistenly work.

There is a list on the first page of the old days that things marked down. Due to a change in the way Target processes clearance, it is no longer reliable. Stores are now, with a few exceptions like major holidays, completely individual in markdown times/dates. A store may mark down furniture on Tuesday this week and then not mark it down again until Thursday 3 weeks later and then on Wednesday 2 weeks after that.

There is really no point in hiding stuff to be marked down. An employee has to scan it before it even gets marked for a lower price. Once it gets scanned, they put it with the other clearance stuff. I've seen many items that should have gotten lowered, but didn't because it didn't get scanned.

I saw a lady pull out a $200+ Kitchenaid appliance she had hidden earlier when the prices dropped to 75% on all the other appliances. They refused to mark the product down for her because it was already in her cart. Serves her right for attempting to hide it in the first place.

Can someone, (a Target expert), explain this concept further? Are the markdowns triggered from the physical on-hand merchandise or driven by management in their backroom office?

If employees are hiding merchandise in the backroom or wherever, waiting for a lower markdown price, what do they have to do any different from a customer to scan and trigger a lower markdown? If employees (or management) can drive a price lower from an item they hidden earlier for themselves, are they essentially committing theft by marking down at will? I worked retail +30 years ago (before UPCs) and when this was done; management was hauled away in handcuffs, charged and convicted.

If the item has gone to NIF $0.00, is the item essentially un-sellable? If they sell it to you at the last marked down price or whatever, have they chosen to deviate from established policy just to get rid of the item and not have to deal with its disposal and adjust inventory records for an item they was likely written off as theft?

Can I demand the last mark-down price for a NIF $0.00 item? Can I call corporate on the spot while in the store with a NIF item in my possession that was denied for sale by store management and demand (request) corporate to instruct the store manager to sell it to me at the last markdown price (75% to 90% off)?

Markdowns are supposed to be activated by physically scanning the merchandise. They only have to scan one to activate it for all. There is, or was might have changed, a way to force activate all price changes without scanning. The team members can be written up, or fired if done repeatedly, for this. It is not company SOP.

Technically, any team member can mark merchandise down if they know how. Company policy is no team member may purchase something that they actually marked down. Is it followed all the time? Nope, that's why you see the price change folks with a buggy full of merchandise. If you, or a supervisor asks, they will say its salvage but most is usually deals THEY want to purchase. Entire price change teams have been fired, at once, for violating this policy.
If a team member hides merchandise in order to buy it later at a lower markdown, at the very least they will be fired if caught. Depending on the laws in the jurisdiction, and if an investigation reveals rampant abuse by a particular team member, prosecution is possible.

Technically, selling merchandise that has "dropped out of the system" or is NOF is against company policy. It is rarely, if ever enforced. Usually the only time it is enforced is against team members buying things as it has the appearance of impropriety, i.e. they stashed it. Selling someone a widget that at 75% off brings in more money that selling it to a salvage company for .10 on the dollar, or just trashing it.
NEVER demand it as that creates an adversarial situation where the manager will be out to screw you and will find a way.You can call corporate, and depending on how things go, they may instruct the manager to sell it to you. It will usually only happen if you find a boatload of all the same merchandise, indicating the store screwed up somewhere. Kind of a punishment for the store as such sales count against them. As long as you are polite, you might get lucky. One of the big reasons is that once its sold off to a salvager or destroyed, the company can claim it for tax purposes. If they sell it afterwards, its double dipping. I don't know what, if anything, could happen if a pattern was found by authorities.

Also remember, alot of merchandise goes NOF at the %50 price so if that's as low as it got in THAT store, that's as low as they will sell.

YMMV of course on finding team members willing to go way outside the lines to make a sale/please you.

My wife picked up Band Hero for PS3 for $50 in Royersford PA yesterday. She said there were three boxes there (she took one), but I'm not sure if the others were the same platform.

Stopped by the Irvine Spectrum Target yesterday trying to score some of the PS2 $4.99 clearance games and no go for Ultimate Alliance 2. Scanned the Ghostbusters PS2 game to see if it ws marked down to $4.99, but it was still marked and rang up as $9.99.

Woodstock GA Super Target

For the first time in several years, our local Target (NY) did not have its annual late January/early February 75% off baby gear clearance. There was a $189.99 Graco travel system (pattern "Little Hoot") that I'd been watching since it got its first clearance sticker (30% off) at least a month ago. Stayed at 30% off with no new sticker markdowns although about 2 weeks ago a check of the DPCI at a price checker came up $89.99. I patiently waited for it to eventually hit the typical 75% off, but when I last checked at a store price checker 3 days ago, it had gone directly from $89.99 to "Item Not Found". I asked one employee with a hand-held checker if she could find out the price, and she told me a price around $129. I knew it had been lower than that so I took it to a cash register and when as expected it came up as "Item not found", a manager was called over. She looked it up and said they could sell it at their last price of $89.99 but would not go any lower. Guess those days of 75% off winter baby gear clearance are gone. Anyone else have a similar experience?

does anyone know when heater and humidifier will hit 75% off

Gotta love those Target deals. I've got my eye on a few Targets hovering around 50%, ready to swoop on them when 75% comes around. Timing varies though, some stores drop items regularly and on a weekly basis...some can take up to 3 weeks for them to drop again.

I bought Lips #1 Hits two weeks ago when it was 50% off, $29.98. I found it this week for $14.98, so I bought it again. I returned the original $29.98 one and got all my money back. When the customer service associate re-priced it, she said, "Oh, it's now $14.98." I asked her if I could buy it again, but she said it had to go back on the floor. I don't think it will make it back to the floor...

a month or so ago i saw employees loading a bunch of Graco strollers that had started clearance onto a cart. i had also just saw something about a recall on Graco strollers (amputating infants' fingers iirc!) a day or so before and thought these were the ones being recalled. so the dearth of clearance on baby items might be due to most of them being recalled.

% off May Vary....

As of the 15th, the local Target was still at 50%.

There was an earlier post about some stores already hitting 75%, but the local is still at 50%.

I was there that morning and just scanned the stroller at 50% off. Then I saw a couple of employees coming over with a price gun. So I though they are going to mark it down to 75%. I asked the lady to scanned the Grago set for me. After she scanned it, she said those are showing salvage. She said she can not sell it to me and have to take all the clearance stuff away and they did. So it never went 75% at that store. I went to another target but found one high chair on 75% off and the stroller price scanned at 75% off as well but they got nothing left. So it's different at every target store.
