Penny clearance items... lets talk. YMMV

Don't know if this is posted somewhere or not but there are lots of 0.01 items to buy. They have been clearanced are are supposed to be sent back. Technically they aren't suppised to be on the floor, but if they are found and taken to the register, it is procedure to sell them. It is in their standard operating procedures manual. However, I can't seem to do it in my area. I have raised complaint with the local DM and raised it to the regional manager because he was no help. However, corporate has told me multiple times that I'm right. So, feel free to try it. Look for rugs with a tan dot near the price tag and clothes with pink and gray dots. They will all be a penny. YMMV regarding on whether or not you'll be able to purchase them. However, I haven't seen another post online of anyone who has had as much hassle as I have. So, I think its just my area.

That happened here in TN. I fought them tooth and nail for the Kraft marshmallow creme, as we use it to bake with. It was .01 and there were 10 of them. The Manager said he couldn't sell them to me so I said them GIVE them to me FREE so he did but only after arguing for about 10 minutes. Went back another day the same week and found 6 more, and told them to just give it to me and they asked and he was there again and didn't argue just gave it to me. Same with pie crust, 15 of them for free.

Okay, I found my old account. Same person, but I will see if I can delete the other.
Shelleyf, I am also in TN, in the Tricities. I am glad you were able to take advantage of the penny stuff! I am seeing this all over blogs and am insanely jealous that I can't. I am awaiting a call from the regional manager because of how I've been treated by 2 DMs. Hopefully, he will side with corporate, unlike the DMs and employees here.

Vicasdeal, they ring up as a penny, and the cashiers here catch it and refuse to go through with the sale. They are trained that it is wrong here, and it is tighter than Fort Knox.
I don't usually frequent DG. Had I had known about this during the Kraft promo, I would have slipped a couple of 0.01 items in with others. But, when I tried it, I was just buying a penny item or 2 and unfortunately that will not work here. However, I have researched it, called corporate numerous times, and confirmed it with a DG employee, it is in their OP manual. Also, looked into Article 1-203 of the Uniform Commercial Code, which they are violating at my stores. They are violating the store's duty of good faith, to not have unsellable items on the sales floor. Neither I nor other customers had any reason to believe that those items were "not for sale".
Maybe you guys will have better luck than me. When the cashier realizes, and gets their manager, they call the DM, who spouts ridiculousness smothered in rudeness. Happened twice. So, go you, shelleyf!

And shelleyf, I never thought of asking them to give them to me. They're probably going to throw them away/shred them anyway. That may be my next tactic, but right now I'm trying to avoid DG after how I was treated.

As I had said, yes... you are looking for dots. There are $8-16 rugs in the home section, I have found both rolled and unrolled rugs with the dots. You are looking for the yellow price sticker on the rugs, usually in the top corner. If there is a tan dot, directly below the price sticker, then it will ring up as a penny. If you find one with the dot, you may find other identical one without the dot, but it must have the tan dot for it to be coded as a penny.

As far as the clothing, on the price tags, there are color coordinated shapes on each one. I have seen circles and stars. You are looking for pink and gray circles, not stars. I have found onsies, toddler shirts (even licensed such as Iron Man, Superman, etc.), women's nightgowns, and adult men's T-shirts.
It sounds strange, but if you write down what to look for, then it's really easy to find once you are in the store. And, it's much easier to find them, than explain it. hahaha
I hope you guys can find some and buy them!

Ya know, I've been a cashier a lot ao I know how crappy it can be. I try to treat every cashier like they've been my best friend forever and it really helps the situation I think.

========================
Are you guys serious? Never heard of this. DG is a long way away for me; it would be an investment of time and gas! But, I need to make a note of this and keep it in the car in case I happen to drive by one like I did yesterday!

Its hit or miss. I went to 4 yesterday. The first I only found 2 but the second I found 16 so really...I find that the super unorganized DGs are the best to go to for that
