This is what deep discounting looks like
So you know how you read recently that retailers are slashing prices to move their inventory, a good news/bad news sign of the economy? Proof in the pudding: I just bought jeans at Banana Republic that originally cost $78 for less than $8, thanks to a slew of discounts that included my having a credit card from the store. That's about 90 percent off when all is said and done.
