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.

Quote from gourty View Post :
Without seeing it for myself, I could only guess, but having the blade off would seem to be the easiest way to get the spring back in. When I did my blade I just took a small bungee and held the guard all the way up then loosened the spindle bolt. It was a little awkward but the blade basically dropped right out. Not that it will help you with the spring, but page 10 of the manual gives the procedure for changing the blades. There again, the HF instructions are notoriously difficult to understand and sometimes just inaccurate.

Let me take a look tomorrow and see what I can find. The saw is kind of tucked away and will take a few minutes to pull out and set up or I would have considered going out earlier tonight. Hang in there, we should be able to get you back up and running soon.
Gourty, you are a good man. I appreciate all your help. If you can snap any pictures/video or just take a look it would help out tremendously.

I think this has been asked recently, but I couldn't find it. Any recent Q's for the 44" tool box for 350? I can find them for 360 and 370, but not 350. Guess those days are gone, but maybe someone will have one. And damn, looked on eBay to see if they're out there, and someone is selling one for 360 that has like 20 bids and is going for 55 bucks! 55 bucks is more than the Q will save! Guess I should start selling mine.
This makes no sense. Why are people bidding up the Q that high when they can be purchased "buy it now" for $1.47? Anyone have any insight? My only thought is that these bidders may not have read the full description and think they are bidding on the actual tool box.

No idea, but never underestimate stupid people. Oftentimes I'll go on eBay looking for a game, or maybe a book and the majority of the time those that are selling are going for more than what the item is new (and I'm not talking about new/hard to find items).

With the amount of fees an auction costs, they aren't making too much or any at all if they bought it full price (for example a game going for $70 when it costs $60 new). It just surprises me that people would buy an item on eBay when you can purchase it new and in store for the same price or less.

Or you'll see one auction on eBay for an item that is at $30 and then you'll find a ton of other items at $15.

eBay auctions never cease to amaze me.

I wonder if the buyer overpaying is doing so with the intent to defraud the seller? Maybe extortion for reputation through the threat of negative feedback? Smart/savy people would know the market for the items they want to buy/sell and there are a lot of the opposite types of people or the market would not exist.

That is the idea... there are a lot of stupid people out there.

I don't think it is a matter of frauding anybody, I think its just a bunch of stupid people that maybe bid on an item and then get outbid and refuse to let it go... or maybe they see a coupon will 'save' them X amount, and so they just bid. Maybe the people aren't even paying attention to what they are bidding for. Who knows.... I know I've personally sold some items that made me think why they heck do they want this so badly (to the point that I've spent a few hours researching the item just to see if I'm missing something).

Heck, I've sold things on eBay that I almost threw in the trash (give away items/free samples/etc). Hard to base prices on eBay. lol

Hi,
Adding to my arsenal of HF tools, I have had my eye on the 80A inverter welder,91110.

I've read the reviews on it, which seem a bit mixed, but I do know that I hate the little flux core wire welder that I bought about 10 years ago. (unless some of you think it has been improved for more reliabile feeding)

I don't do much welding, just some Oxy-A, plain old stick, and the aforementioned junk box. So I'm thinking of trying the inverter for some small bracket and sheet metal work I want to do. One question: has anyone tried adapting this to either the little spot welder adapter attachment or the little sheet metal stick adapter? I think I know the answer on the sheet metal adapter already, but would love verification.

So to the chase: I'll try the little 80A inverter, for the right price. The retail is 179, and I keep seeing it reduced to "only" 149. I realize that is not a bad deal combined with 25%, but if it might go lower on regular sale by summer, I'll wait to use the 25% off and hopefully get it below a hundred. I want to do the same with the powder coater.

Thanks for any advice, John

I have the 220 Mig and it works great.

Also Welders have been excluded from % off coupons for a while now.

Yeah, I forgot about that. They don't seem to list a 220 Mig anymore; I just see 170/180. Those are outside the scope of what I was talking about. (i.e. they are not so cheep_)

I do see that that 20% coupon that is listed on the first page, with the fill-out section, does not have the specific welder exclusions listed on it, at least not that I could see.

Quote from JAV2738 View Post :
Any pictures would help greatly. I know how it goes back together but I cannot for the life of me get the spring back in properly. This really aggrevates me because I cannot find a how to video for the Chicago Electric anywhere. Basically I need to know how to get the spring back on. Is it easier with the blade off or on? I cannot seem to hold it all in place to figure it out. I was hoping someone who knows what they are doing could try this or have tried this before. Thank you for your help
I pm'd you JAV.
