If it ends in $0.04, it is final clearance and won't be further reduced. If it ends in another digit, it is simply on clearance and the number has no specific meaning.

Every two weeks, unsold clearance items are reduced to the next increment. So if you have your eye on a particular item, such as this Moroccan Shag Pouf, return in 14 days to see if it has been marked down again.
