(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.

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).

If you need to get a hold of customer service:

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

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.

HF Coupon Finder

You can read the manual for many items by taking the part number and inserting it into this kind of url:
ie. part # 41653 so this is in the range is 41000-41999 use the format:
http:// []

Price adjustments
Coupons that have expired and are no longer valid may still be honored or partially honored online. Examples being magazine coupons which are not yet updated. Call customer service with item and coupon numbers and they may be willing to process the order for less on the phone or adjust your online order after it has been placed.
Confirmed by Tastyratz when ordering blue flame welding helmet. $54 @ site 39.99 on coupon, Price adjustment to $43.99 offered on phone.

Current "free item" and "25% off" coupon images are attached below. Some are screen shots of digital coupons from HF or digital magazines and should be honored by all stores. Some are scans of printed coupons; those may be less widely honored.

Thanks in advance!

This the one? Tell ya what, print out this coupon and get even a few more of your dollars back ;-) This one expires 4/21/13....

(if you come across the $2.99 coupon for the 9-piece magnetic nut setter set, lemme know ;-) )

Argh! Lol I just bit the bullet earlier this evening. The difference is only 1.35 (that's after taxes are addded even) doesn't seem like much to squabble over, so I think I'll be holding out for that big price drop back to 79.99 I'm hoping for. Hopefully someone else can get some use out of that coupon! Thanks for posting it even if I didn't get to use it Smilie
I even got a comment from the guy behind me in line about what a beast this impact is, can't wait to use it! Going back for a compressor tomorrow...
I have a 3.99 coupon for that set.... but I'll bet everyone does right now... I'll keep my eyes peeled

I can't recall the last time I saw the 2 ton coupon. And I watch for those.

I think that's fairly common, though I'm usually watching the 20 ton. Never saw a point to the large 12.

I was getting my tires aligned at Sears this morning and they had Automobile Magazine, so I helped myself to the coupons. Scanned them when I got home to share with you guys. Here they are.

Sweet thanks jimmy, those coupons just saved me 10 bucks on that compressor. Just have to make the trip back out to HF to swap out prices...

here's a possibly odd sounding question....

I see some HF tools packaged in a cardboard backed blister pack, and the same product packaged in an all plastic sealed package. Anyone know which is the "newer" packaging?

I would think the all plastic package is the new stuff, but I'm not sure..... there are a few items I purchase from HF that are considered to me to be "consumable" and I wind up purchasing them often... BUT, I only like to use the all plastic packaged product as it is a better fit for me than the cardboard bcked product.... they are nearly identical, but they are different and the slight difference makes a big difference to me...

can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Mike B

Found this 25% coupon in this thread. Might want to post it in the wiki - I don't know how.

Watch the PDF's above for the free items I posted. All require a $9.99 purchase. I hope this is just for this magazine coupons and not something that HF is going to do with all the "Free" coupons!
