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.

Late but as promised video review of the Lotos $300 plasma cutter
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MY...detailpage
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1m...detailpage

Done in true Tommy Mac character for those of you that are familiar, if not look him up and you'll understand.
So never heard of tommy mac, figured he is little known Sopranos character....But alas I find a new woodworking show to check out.... score.....

Love the review. Just pwrefect and I am looking for a $300 zip tie cutter to mess around with myself...I do hope that they primed those zip ties before they painted over them....Although maybe they sprung for the black ones to begin with....GRIN

Thanks for the review.

Been a while, but I wasn't paying attention and bought something small and tried to use a coupon with a $10 minimum. The system wouldn't allow it, but YMMV.
Crap, didn't realize they have changed that.

Dear Harbor Freight,

I must commend you on your marketing. Really I would NEVER have paid for ' inside track' membership, but you really reeled me in...I mean to join this club and get 'insider coupons' that cost me more then the coupons I find in the newspaper and every otrher magazine seriously takes a marketing genious to pull off.

I take it my membership fee although it may not get me the best coupons(even decent ones), must pay for all the magazine advertising coupons...The better coupons, the free coupons, the no membership needed coupons..

So I understand you are just publicly trying to point out the dumbest in the herd. Those who pay more for less while standing in the same line as the fellow snickering at my inside track club card while holding a coupon for $15 cheaper for the same item I am holding....

SERIOUSLY?!?!

Those weekly coupons(Now with higher more offensive pricing) are really starting to piss me off.

I'll try to post some high res scans of the best coupons I have found. I generally take the best from this thread, clean them up in photoshop before I print them. I'll try to jpg or pdf some of them to share.

It is the least I can do as penance for allowing myself to be SCAMMED out of $19 for an ITC membership.

Almost everything on sale with the ITC that is a $20+ purchase is a better deal on sale with a 20% coupon. The ITC is a joke. They still send me the coupons, but the barcodes don't appear and mine membership ended last month.

The only way that ITC would be a good deal, is:
1) You have a major purchase that is only an ITC deal
2) they stop giving the 20% off of sales, which will be the last time I shop at HF.

Best use of a HF 20% coupon for me...buying Rigid table saw for $100 off be HD matched it.

Forgot about that, I posted that over two months ago. Since then I've noticed that most of the online and newspaper coupons don't have a limit. Maybe someone got lazy or they are testing the $10 minimum again. I take it from the last time they did it, it was a failure.

I can one-up that, I got a dewalt pressure washer at HD. It was $600 originally, marked down to $500, price-matched to the HFT coupon at $400. Pretty good deal...

And I am not all sour grapes on HF...Really they have gotten me into some cheap tools that have helped me out. If you know what you need and and how you'll need to use it, HFT can get you by. I've been running a HFT 12" compound slide miter for over 5 years, few jobs a year and it's more then paid for itself. I really wanted the dewalt at the time, but could not justify just over $100 for the HFT compared to about $600 at the time for the dewalt....Not for 3-4 jobs a year.....3-4 jobs a week, I'd have to go with the dewalt of course.

I'm learning welding on my $90 welder from HFT and will likely get something better at some point, but it is getting my by right now....

My $9 HFT angle grinder might make my hands a bit numb, but it has done about 8 jobs now. I was only hoping to get 1 or 2 out of it.....

But the point is, my Inside track coupon did not get me the grinder for $9, this thread did with a magazine scan..

Dear Harbor Freight, please give the ITC members some coupons that re better then the magazine ones....Or maybe let us use the 20% coupons on ANYTHING. I might have bought a compressor from HFT if you did....

Long day fishing today....Will post my scans tomorrow.

Has anyone seen a 440 lb electric hoist coupon floating around? The last one I bought worked out well and I need a second.

Another couponless sale:

1612 Retail B [harborfreight.com] 4/19 - 4/29 - 50% OFF SALE -- NOTE These are not coupons!


SubaruB4: I haven't seen that on any of the recent coupons but there may be a couple of printed ones around.

Scott-T: I kept putting off getting the ITC membership. Finally one day I saw the 1/2" lathe chucks on sale and I needed some extras for a production project I was working on. The savings on 3 of them with the ITC coupon paid the full ITC membership price and I got a $10 gift card out of it. Since then I've found a few needed items that were $10-$30 less with the ITC than I would've gotten any other way. I guess it just depends on what you're buying. But I do agree, they could (and should) do MUCH better.

I always end up renewing mine too when I need something that it will pay for the membership, first year it was the shop crane second year arbor press, this year TBD. I always renew first, get the $10 card and then buy the item so the deal is even sweeter. So far a month expired I havent seen anything to make me jump yet.

I watched your reviews on the lotus PC. Loved itwoot For 300 bucks a hobby PC is perfect. But, there are always haters out there saying buy American, or buy local. Why the f%*& would I spend 1k++ for a PC or Tool I can get similar performance for 300. People don't realize all the electonics inside of a Plasma regardless of American or Chinese are all manufactured in Japan. So put that in your pipe haters!!!Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
