Costco Item Ending in $x.00

Was in a US Costco and found it interesting there is a third cents type ($x.00) besides $x.99 and $x.97. A worker said when the manager wanted to clear something out he prices them at .00.

Personally...
I look for the * Asterisks
As in WONT BE RESTOCKED ... WHEN THEY ARE GONE, THEY ARE GONE
I understood that $ 0.97 meant lowest price
So $ 0.97 together with an Asterisk *
Would be the BOTTOM LINE ... the MAGIC COMBO
$ 0.00 (or any other ending) just means it might be repriced again to something ending in $ 0.97
Presumably LOWER even still
So $ 15.00 might be $ 12.97 a week from now

$ 0.00 might indeed be a Store Managers Code
But it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the BOTTOM LINE
