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.

FREE ITEM Coupons
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.

I don't think it's kosher to recreate their coupons.

recreated? Yikes, um, I wouldn't do that.... even if the bar code number is ok, I wouldnt' take the chance.... there are enough legit coupons out there :-)

They can prohibit you from using coupons and other mean stuff like that if you get caught ;-(

I posted a pretty decent copy of that coupon earlier, it was in yellow and printed out nicely on paper too...

"just sayin' " :-)

I guess it all really comes down to the UPC bar code... as long as that's a legit number I guess it would be ok...

I'd still be careful ;-)

Check over the coupon policy. Simply reading the number from your cell is enough for me in practice and may be explicitly allowed. I know that images on the cell are.

I was told by a HF manager that a cell phone with a picture of the coupon is in the new coupon policy that was sent to the stores and that all HF's should allow it now.

That's why I mentioned it's pretty much all about the bar code really.... as long as the computer doesn't reject it, it's good.... and even then there's an over-ride... I had one cashier give me 3 freebies with me and my son there because I had the coupons... she didn't even take the coupons LOL

That's too bad- I copied the one you put up yesterday, and it worked perfectly last night. No problems here. Wink

It must have been a legit bar code, since it worked fine.

Yes it prints very nice and is good till sometime in June. The code on it works online so it has to be legit. I might use it a time or three. LOL!!!wave

One thing I learned about coupons posted online (any coupons - Target, HF, Kohl's, etc)..... Save them to your hard drive IMMEDIATELY. You never know when they will disappear from the internet.

ALL ARE COUPONS and most are double sided. Picture/ price on front, barcode on back, and might be one time use coupons with my personal info so I erased it.

Could be regional too because back tells about new store that opened a few weeks ago closest to my location.

Sure would appreciate some rep points for all the time it took to scan and post these. Thank you.
