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.

I was in HF today with a 20% off Entertainment Book coupon. I wanted to pick up a side cabinet that is on sale for $199, "normally" $250. Well, despite the only exclusion on the coupon being Campbell Hausfeld products, HF extended the exclusions to the current list which includes tool cabinets. It didn't do any good complaining to the manager as she said they can change anything anytime they want. That will probably be my last trip to HF.

Seriously? I had just clipped my Entertainment coupons last night noting the lack of exclusions. That sucks. They are slowly losing me as other hardware stores are starting to catch up.

NEVER... NEVER... NEVER... Call to confirm a deal. Especially if it's really good! You may be telling them that there's something wrong & that they should fix it. You will also incur the wrath of everyone on this forum.

Glad I started hoarding HF stuff last year!

The last thing I bought was the 16 drawer tool box for $349 and it currently up to $369!

http://www.harborfreight.com/26-8...67831.html

I got 10% off because I had to return it once so I got it for $330. It's really an awesome tool box.

It is said that if you follow an ugly kid home and knock on the door, guess who answers the door. That's right, an ugly parent.

It is also said that if you follow a bully home and knock on the door, guess who answers the door.

That's right, parents who act just like the kid.

I think costco stocks a box like that for ~$400 and it's probably better quality, as they tend to stock high quality stuff exclusively.

That 10lb soda blaster for 33 bucks was a great deal but the Baltimore store would not take a 20% off coupon on top of it, none the less still happy with it.

Hmmm, I still like the HF tool box more. The upper box on the HF chest is basically the same depth as the bottom box, where as the upper box is more like a craftsman (not as deep as the lower box) on the Costco one.

Oh, and not to forget, the HF one is $170 less.

The costco one was $400 in teh durham, nc store. Let's not forget that it is also 60lbs heavier than the HF one. Think of how much quality that weight must equate to... 60lbs!!!

This one is cooler though:
http://www.costco.com/Browse/Prod...opnav=&s=1

They had one in-store that was a wider, low profile one with a hardwood worktop. I think I'd actually rather have one of those to double as a rolling workbench. Didn't see it online though.

Had to take my truck into town for service today so I stopped by the local HF store. I spent 9.99 so i could get a free flashlight. HaHaHa. and another 5 bucks on some brushes. I took my wife in with me so each of us could use one 20% off coupon. In talking with the store manager I discovered that he too finally had all he could take with constantly changing HF policies and is leaving for a better job. I will miss him as he was a cool guy who always took time to talk with the customers. I remember one time he was talking with a customer who wanted to purchase an item around 300 dollars or so and mentioned to the customer that he could use a 20% off coupon. Customer did not have any so store manager said to ask "the gentlemet over there", me, if I had a spare coupon. Sale made! Hope the new manage will be half as nice as the one leaving.

If you read the "Harbor Freight Sucks" FB page, you don't get the idea that the company is going in a good direction. As far as I can tell, they are doing everything they can to make it look as profitable as possible prior to an IPO. And that seems to include firing/forcing-out long time employees so they can keep bonus money or reduce payroll.

Then again, the HF Sucks page is also completely written by a bunch of angry current and ex-employees. You sort of have to filter out the random whining crap from things that might actually be fact.
