Codes to help you save:
- Store tags contain hidden sales information of items in stock. In preparation for sales, shop staff scribble numbers, letters or dots on price tags. If you spot these markings on a full-price item you want to buy, hold off – they often mean the item’s about to be reduced.
- Some typical Next codes are B14, G4, P7, OB9 and S13. Ignore the letters, which seem to relate to where sale items are to be located in store, and you’re left with just a number – that’s generally the price this item’s going down to.
- An item priced at £26 with a cryptic ‘S13’ noted in pen. A couple of days later, it was £13 in the sale (half-price). An £8 item marked ‘G4’. This became £4 in the sale.
- Often shops sort clothes by colour or this season’s look, rather than categories such as jeans and tops – to keep you in the store and exploring further.
- However, a few days before a sale, staff often re-sort garments by type which is a sign that you should wait before purchasing.
- When a website has an online chat this means that this can be the key to unlocking discount codes. If you state that you have interest in the product but it is slightly out of your budget you could request a discount code which can be generated by the employee on the chat, to be used later in the checkout section.
- This has been tested and has worked previously worked and has been successful. This in the eyes of the shop they would rather you spend money on a product at a discounted rate, compared to not spending anything.
