Slickdeals Coupon Usage Rules and Guidelines

Slickdeals New User Guide
(helpful for even some of us older users)

Coupons are in the attachments at the bottom of this wiki. Search for 'Attached Thumbnails' (use CTRL-F). Press search again if you just found this line...

Watch the DATES, we often find and post future coupons.

COUPON POLICY
HF standard policy is (however, YMMV)

One coupon per item, no double dipping on coupons. Fixed sale price (ex. $4.99 screwdriver set) or 25% off any one item - not both.
One percentage off per purchase, per day (generally are 25% off)
You can generally use a 25% coupon on an item on sale. However, some have reported that they have been turned down. If that happens to you, try a different cashier.
Fixed price item coupons will list a max quantity allowed.
One "freebie item" per day (currently are with "any purchase", occasionally a minimum purchase).
Fine print for percentage off coupons exclude some name brands (C-H),air compressors, tool chests, generators, floor jacks, parking lot and other special sales.
Occasionally, HF will offer a percentage off total purchase. Generally, to get a 20% discount the coupon is worded as requiring a specific dollar amount purchase ($99).

(You can generally use a 25% coupon on a sale priced item (fine print exclusions {like parking lot sales still apply) or an online price match. However, some have reported that they have been turned down. If that happens to you, try a different cashier {or store).

INSIDE TRACK CLUB - ITC Membership required by company direction, BUT some cashiers don't care enough to check for your card. YMMV.
Pay close attention to what you're buying. I went through maybe 20 items before I found one that wasn't less simply using the 25% coupon. Several items not on sale were better with the ITC coupon but the trailer for example was $20 less using the 25% coupon over the ITC coupon. One item was not on sale and the ITC coupon was the non-sale price!!

Buck or Less Deals
*Please list with expiration date if price is from a sale and known.*
B&MO = Brick & Mortar (In Store) Only

OTHER INFO
Retail stores should price match the on-line website. Bring printouts to get online price matches in-store.
20% and 25% coupons should work on top of the price match as well.

Home Depot and Lowes have taken printed HF coupons but Your Mileage May Vary.
Taking in full page magazine ad with 20% off coupon and removing at register is best option as coupons don't have obvious Harbor Freight logo or identification on them.

Same here. They claimed they are unable to overide this. I bet that is bs though. If they have coupons still out there without the restrictions on them. Then they will have to honor them. My wife was the one that was rejected. But if it was me. I would have gotten the manager to show me the exclusion on the coupon or give me the discount.

This really stinks since i used to wait for things to go on sale then use the coupon to get a killer price. I did this with my drill press to get a $600 drill press for like $375.

I have also had them ask for my ITC card to use coupons in the store. you can also use the coupon online. And as Darryl pointed out you get early entrance to side walk sales, they also have sales just for ITC members.
It's well worth the money. I love mine with mine. For Christmas I was able to get there meat slicers for my entire family for $20.00 a piece (I could not find any other place for under $60.00 a piece) I bought a total of 8 of them and had them mailed out for $10.00 Each for shipping.
Love them.

You are correct, HF stores do not accept 20% coupons off on certain sales. If its not printed on your coupon its posted inside the stores. I for one have stopped going to HF on a regular basis not only for the sales restriction listed, but because one can only use one 20% off each day. Not going to drive 60 miles round trip for just one coupon, and the local store manager knows this well, as I was a weekly visitor and used lots of their coupons, not only the 20% off ones. I told him last time I am now throwing away more 20% off coupons than I use. The only way it will change is if enough customers stop buying at HF and corporate management will address this when profits drop!!!! But it sure was hard not to drive over to HF today.....

I just found when the store closer to me (without paying tolls) is going to open the store in orange, Ct is going to open March 1st 2011.

I can't wait for that wayy closer and no hassle of dealing with NY and NJ traffic going to the saddle brook store.

Until then I think I can hold of buying anything now.

Do you have to be in the club or are these just regular advertisements for anyone to use kind of coupons?

Using ITC coupons in the store without being an ITC member is a big YMMV. Some people have no trouble, some get shut down. Depends on how much the cashier cares and is paying attention.

The last time I was in the store I used ITC coupons the cashier did not ask me for my card. The man behind me used some ITC coupons she asked him for his so you never no.
