“I thought I’d try my luck at Big W with all the awesome bargains that have been posted - got some really awesome bargains!” posted a third, sharing a photograph of an activewear and women’s clothing haul.

One Queensland customer also shared a photograph of a pair of Nike brand sneakers which she scored for just $3, while another Queenslander was able to grab some Havaianas brand shoes for $3.

‘Check them!’: Bargain hunters reveal tip to score discount buys

Social media has been abuzz about the $3 Big W buys, but according to Markdown Addicts group members, not all discounted items have been stickered.

“Some weren’t marked down on the tag but scanned as $3,” one group member said.

“I found that so much stuff is scanning at a discount but not marked down,” wrote another.

“They weren’t marked on the tag, but I grabbed them and checked them and they scanned at $3,” posted a third.

“The staff said they were going to sticker them soon, but wanted to leave them out for people to grab first,” said a fourth.

Group members have also flagged that bargain hunters should keep a look-out for the code S21 on item tags, with reports that S21 items are all scanning at $3.

Delighted group members have labelled the $3 sale as “awesome,” writing in comments that they’ve never seen bargains like this before.
