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")
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.

Damn you got a smoking deal. Seems like pep boys don't carry them anymore. I need the 12 ton for the extra height/safety in the near future since my 4runner will be hitting 30k. I do all the maintanence on my other vehicles with a 3 ton. The 3 tons I have won't be able to reach the require height I need. Frown
Yeah definitely do not overextend cheap jackstands or try to prop them up, very very dangerous and can end badly.

If you have a Farm/Tractor Supply store in your area, sometimes they have better deals on heavy duty equipment like this.

Pep Boys used to pricematch too and they used to have discount coupons, they might still do both. With black friday around the corner, pep boys starts putting out weekly ads next sunday (not this one) so be sure to look for those deals too.

Another possibility is the 40-50% off coupon codes for advance auto parts that pop up monthly or every other month.

Oh and I had this bookmarked from when I was priceshopping:
http://www.overstock.com/Home-Gar...oduct.html
$55 at overstock for the double locking + free ship, which is amazing ($30 less than amazon)
But since they are listed as "out of stock" it is very very dicey to get anywhere to price match.
However with black friday around the corner, price matching policies are getting much looser.
Very few if any local stores stock the double-locking model though, they go for the cheaper model without the safety.

Does the 2 ton aluminum racing floor jack (68051) ever go on sale? I haven't seen it for less than the usual "sale" price of $150 or $159.99.
The 1.5 ton that's always on sale for $59 or $69 is way too small (14.75" lift) and there's only $30 difference between the better 1.5 ton and the 2 ton.

Funny thing happened today.....

I went in with a 25% off as well as some per-item coupons - wanted to buy a roll around cart when I noticed that the 25% specifically excluded toolboxes & carts (I knew about the toolboxes but not the carts). I got the cart, roller up to the register, handed her the coupons, and thought that the 25% would come off of something small I'd picked up - but to my surprise it took 25% off the ~ $50 cart.

While I probably only go there once a month or so - I'd never seen this before - some customer (non-employee) handing out pages of 25% off coupons laugh out loud

Your printer is out of ink?
You ran out of paper?
You get to the store and find you left them at home?
You checkout and forgot to give the cashier your coupons?
The cashier says you can't use printout/copies and you didn't think to say "what do you mean I can't use coupons that Harbor Freight emails me?"

I try to hand out one or 2 every time I go in. But always in the back of my mind is they are a business and someone needs to keep the lights on.

I would say 100 freebies qualifies him for 'he has a cough' level.

When you have to throw a screwdriver away after each screw to keep the screwdiver drawer closeable, we'll talk.

May I ask, have you seen the harbor freight 12 ton jack stands lower then $90 x .25 = $67.50 before? http://www.harborfreight.com/12-t...34924.html Thanks in advance!
If I have, it's been a while. It might have been an RV magazine, but I haven't found a HF ad in an RV magazine in a while.

I know Diesel Power only had the 6 ton this time around.

If you're up for a build, search "4x4 tall stands". That should give you some ideas. Otherwise the tall HF underhoist stand [harborfreight.com]is the basic design I would use.

Cheapways I'd use wood cribbing.

Those people must have a death wish.

I've seen old 2x4s split with a nail in the right place, imagine the pressure of 2 to four tons pressing down, and those looks like individual boards that are free to move on their own?

Free to move on their own? Like these dry stacks?
