These pages are populated with items that have been detected as being marked down specifically in your local stores. The Local Markdown Feed pages are updated by our system when new deals have been detected locally. This is an exclusive Extreme membership feature, and it's a great way to find deals locally in one easy to use page without having to dig through multiple Local Markdowns by Store pages. For example, if there is a deal found at only one of your local stores, you won’t have to dig through all of the local store markdowns individually to find it, it’ll be displayed here with the store that has the deal. Local prices and quantities are always subject to change so it’s always great practice to use the inventory checker for real-time info before leaving for the store.
Accessing the Local Markdown Feed
Let’s take a look at the Local Markdown Feed pages so that you can learn what it is and how you can use this page to help you find great local deals.
To access the Local Markdown Feed pages from a desktop browser, you’ll first have to hover over the Members Area menu, then hover over Local Markdown Feed, and then select a retailer. Due to popularity, we’ll use the Local Markdown Feed for Walmart in our examples. Once you select the retailer, it’ll default to your home zip code and display deal tiles. You can manually change the zip code to another location or you can use your current location to find deals near you, which is great for those on travel.
Viewing the Local Markdown Feed
Now that you’re viewing the page, you’ll notice each deal is located in its own tile. The tile includes the title of the deal; the MSRP; the lowest known local price (“As low as”); a button to view the local stores that have the deal; and three dots in the upper left corner. If you hover your cursor over the three dots it will also provide you with additional information for that item, which includes the SKU; links to check local inventory; the pricing records; and the BrickSeek Snapshot page; and if you’re an Extreme member you’ll also have the option to hide this item from your feed. If you click on the button to view the stores that have that deal a dialog box will appear that lists exactly which local stores were detected for that item, a timestamp of when the price change was detected, the stock status, the previously known price for the item, the new price detected, and the MSRP.
Here is a closer look at the Local Markdown Feed deal tiles that are described above.
Now that you’re getting familiar with the Local Markdown Feed page, it’s time to scroll through these deals to find items that may interest you. Remember, the stock statuses and prices displayed in the dialog boxes are from the time that the system detected the deal, and they’re always subject to change. As a result, you should always search the items using the local inventory checker to ensure that nothing has changed. When you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page you will see how many deals are currently being displayed; and you’ll have the option to navigate to the next page, previous page, or you can manually input which page you want to navigate to.
You’ll also see product filters on the left column of this page that will allow you to filter and sort the deals. For example, if you previously saw a Pioneer Woman product on one of these pages and want to find it again, you can apply a Brand filter on the left column to filter the page to display only Pioneer Woman products. The number associated with this filter is for the total number of local stores that carry items within this filter.
By default, the Local Markdown Feed is sorted by Newest deals first. You can also change this to sort by Discount as well by using the Sort By drop down menu in the upper right corner of the page.
