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!!

TWITTER DEALS

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.

Quote from RoloisRight View Post :
Apples and oranges.

I'm here to find deals on tools and saw some posts complaining about the latest sale that I found silly. I thought it would be fun to make a joke, but I was wrong. If it's serious to you, don't let my joking get in the way.
I'm here for deals too, and if Harbor Freight says they are having a "fire sale," I don't expect a fire at their store. If they say their low prices will "blow my mind," I don't expect my brain to explode upon reading their circular. But if they say that their coupons are good on specific dates, for specific prices, and that certain, marked coupons (but not others) are the lowest prices they've ever offered those items, I expect them not to lie about that. I think that's fair. I think that's reasonable. Let's agree to disagree. If other people feel like I do, they are free to contact me, because I'd like to address this.

Personally I don't care what they call their sales. Just like "Tool Liquidation" you know they're not liquidating anything.

Edit.. I've also not seen a sale where they say 7 wrenches and only give you 6. I've seen 7 piece sets with only 6 wrenches, but the case is considered the 7th. Everyone's been doing that forever. It's also, no doubt, been litigated before and since people are still doing it, the court must have found in their favor.

3216 Retail C [harborfreight.com] Thru 8/21 - 3 in 1 Portable Power, 130 Piece Tool Kit, ...
3216 Retail B [harborfreight.com] 8/12 - 8/14 - 3 Day Sale plus 3 FWAPs.

no argument, so you use semantics. nice.

as far as the "piece" thing. Its just like rubbermaid. You get, lets say 25 pieces, but the lids count as a piece. Similar to your example.

They're talking about when a retailer specifically states "lowest price of the year" on an item, when its a flat out lie. And to use, the semantics of 'liquidation' or 'fire sale' is weaksauce.

I think the the fire sale and liquidation sales are part of the charm of harbor freight, I only take issue with lies like "lowest price ever" when there is another current valid coupon for less.

Example attached.

Filled the truck this weekend. $35 engines, $35 pressurized sandblaster pot, $70 motorized pipe threader. One stop on Sunday the manager said "make an offer" and I threw out $25 on a mower engine. He said sold too quick, I should have gone lower. I didn't have use for the other stuff there but was going to start offering $5 on things.

My lazy store didn't even bother putting anything outside. They had the new in box cheap stuff on a table as you entered the store. No deals to be had.
