Here’s a hot tip from one of my sources—use the SKU number (the numbers underneath the bar codes on the price tag) to find your favorite items online for less. Entering the SKU number, and sometimes the style number into Google, can help you find your favorite item for less on sites like eBay. Furthermore, many online discount/off price stores like SmartBargains.com and Overstock.com, are not allowed to use the name of certain designers mid level designers like Jones New York and Tahari (which is why they’ll say something like “name brand designer suit”, when selling their items at discount prices, but will have the SKU numbers listed on the page.
