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.

Little know fact....... Did you know that employees get an additional 20% off the price (max annual purchase of $1,500) plus they can use the 20% or 25% coupon on sale items (probably not parking lot sales and other stuff the general public can get).

One of the employees told me this. He also said at my store markdowns (open packages) are typically 20% off. So they can get a $100 item - 20% open package - 25% coupon - 20% employee discount for $35 bucks!!!!........... Now I need that gig!!!!!!! :-)

Looking for a good copy of the 9/29/13 NO PURCHASE REQUIRED Multimeter coupon. I see one in the wiki but it doesn't print well (too dark) and with the rip mark along the right side I don't think it will go over well.

Thank you!
There are actually four Multimeter coupons in the wiki..

I did not get the chance to go to all the HF stores, but I did pickup some great bargains. You really can get stuff that works at a great price. Open box items are the best to look for bargains.

Next time I will wake up earlier and hit all HF stores. You can really get better than Q prices.

Thanks for the update on those prices. Let me ask your opinion....... the sale price on these is around $104 from time to time, so is $70 really that hot of a price? Wonder why they were marked down? If they have a defect and it costs more than $30 to fix then if would be better to get one when it's new in the box and on sale????

I'm cheap, so at $50 I might jump at it........ but yet wouldn't want to have a $50 paper weight if it was junk.
At one time they stamped the receipt 5 day return for those open box items. They don't seem to do that any more. If I were to buy a compressor, I would make sure it was a current model.

I really don't understand what they are. If they were returns, I would think you'd see them in the back of the store with the other return/open box stuff. At one point an employee did say they were returns, sent to be reconditioned and returned to the same store. I'm not sure that explains 1 store having 8 engines and 2 other stores having none. Or at certain times of the years, you can get engines and other sales you can't.

Reconditioned could simply mean they started it and it ran. If this is the case, if you return a drill because it got soo hot it burned your hand after 5 minutes, that might just make it into someone else's hands.

$70 to me would be a good deal, but I would not buy one of those. I'd rather have one of the vertical 2.5 21 gal for the space savings. That is, if I needed one that small.

Use the 25% off coupon found on page one of the wiki that expires on 10/29/13 (#57699261) that will bring your price to $74.99.

I tried the coupon online and it works fine, so it should also work in the store!

How's that? Saved you $5 more than you were expecting!!!wootwoot

I'm in CT. I stopped in to a local store two days before the sale and checked out the open box stuff. Then whent back second day of the sale and all the prices where still the same. So I ask a manager about it. He said the open box stuff is not part of the Paking Lot sale and would remain the same price. They are only more prominently displayed during the sale. So I asked if they varied by region or store to store. He said nope!

I am confused.

It's true that the open box items are not apart of the Huge Parking Lot Sale. You can always ask for a lower price at any time when they are available. Seems more likely to lower the price on open box items when there is a Huge Parking Lot Sale. Ask the manager or cashier next time to reduce the price. I did on several open box items. Got stuff I wanted for some time, but really did not want to pay the retail prices, even with a Q. Got them below Q prices and they work with all the parts.

Check out the steam cleaner kit [youtu.be] I got during the sale. Again, something I wanted, but did not want to pay retail even with Q. You will find good bargains.

Generally the open box/returns here have a large sticker with the price. The parking lot sale stuff has a little orangish/red sticker. Those dremel copies all had the little orange sticker and were never in that store's clearance area. You never see a pile of engines or compressors and those are frequently at the parking lot sale.

This time the stores put out their clearance area, but no one buys them. Overpriced crap missing parts. Often you can get the same item for less, new.

Those things are junk.

Get the good set, the Milwaukee knock-offs. These are as good if not better than the real ones. The parts are interchangeable with each other as well.

I have this set. It seems to me there was a coupon last year for either 7.99 or 5.99. I haven't really paid attention if there's been a coupon since then.

Those are too expensive for my blood. Also I only will use it probably once, and that set doesn't have a 3" or 3-1/2" and that's what I need. Thank you though.
