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.

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:
Call 1-800-444-3353, Monday thru Friday, 6:00 am to 4:30 pm PST time
Email: <----- This seems to be the most effective form for complaints

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.

The 2-ton is definitely the one to buy. That thing is a beast. I have the 2.5 ton which is much better than the 3-ton. You get much better jacking range from the "lighter" capacity jacks.

I still want to get the $100 coupon for the 2-ton and sell mine on craigslist or something.

Could they have brought up one of the wrong box? The 12 ton would fit into that price range. A 20 at that price is quite the steal.

There isn't a moderator, other than over the whole coupon forum. The wiki is available for anyone to add their coupons, but staying on top of requests and posts would be a full time job (and completely boring after the first 30 minutes for us ADHD folk)
Found the receipt. Item #32879 rand up at $89.99 - less $22.50 with 25% coupon. $67.49 Total.

Very odd.

Better go buy a lottery ticket cause it shows as $190 online and I think there's a coupon for $160(don't hold me to that).

I'm right by one store, I'll have to check.
[edit2]$219 with tax here.

[edit]did it come with cast plates? Cause you really don't want to use those.

I'm looking for a jump starter (mainly to power my BBQ controller, but that is another story). I regularly catch the yellow 3 in 1 for 35.99 coupon, but is there a better one out there? I'd really like to see it for 29.

I was wondering if anyone has an up to date coupon for the cordless drill and flashlight combo. I think I am finally just going to buy it I need a light duty drill and figure hell if it comes with a flashlight that's just extra. Also has anyone used the drill is it decent at all for the money. I am thinking of putting up some of the fake wood paneling that's not to thick and I figure it should be able to handle that no problem also I need to install some accessories to my kayak.

I'm in a similar boat... I have my eyes on the 96157 model with the 400 watt A/C outlet for around $70 after the 25% coupon.

Here is an ad I received in the mail. 25% expires in Feb '14. The prices are pretty good in this one (comparable to other magazine ads).
