Kmart sold out of your favorite product? Employee reveals the secret code on the tags of the seller that tell you when the item is back in stock
- A Kmart employee has revealed a little-known code on the retailer’s price tags
- If you visit a store and the desired product is out of stock, this will help you
- Each shopping tag has an ‘estimated delivery date’ for those wondering
- You can find out when that item should be back in the store without asking
- The ‘hack’ went viral on Facebook and some employees were even surprised
Kmart customers are delighted with the news that their favorite store has a ‘secret code’ on the sold out tags that indicate when a product returns to the store.
The ‘hack’ was discovered by an Australian customer before an employee confirmed it was true, saying that while it only gives you an ‘estimate’ for when that item will return, it’s better than not knowing it at all.
“I was years old today when I heard the date on a ‘temporarily out of stock’ tag tells you when the next supply of stock is estimated at Kmart,” one woman wrote on Facebook.
“The abbreviation EDD means estimated delivery date.”

A Kmart employee confirmed, “It’s an estimated delivery / due date! But certainly only an estimate, that is not to say that it will certainly arrive on that date. ‘
The news overwhelmed those who have waited patiently for items like the $ 29 sausage rolls to make their way back to stores, which one tag says should be refilled on July 8.
A lady, who currently works at Kmart, said she had never been told about the date on tags and would have found it helpful if customers had questions about out-of-stock items.

“It’s true, every item I wanted arrived in the store on the date it’s on the label,” one woman revealed.
“I saw this while I was shopping yesterday and I was seriously shocked,” said another.
A third added, “I’m going to review every tag now.”
There is a secondary date on the tag, marked by the abbreviation GSD, which, according to another Kmart employee, stands for ‘Global Service Delivery’.
“The GSD date is the date it was scanned and the out-of-stock label was printed … I’ve seen wild theories about that,” she said.
