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!!

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.

It looks like all of the advertised parking lot sale prices are live now online.

Items on the flyer that do NOT need a coupon code to get the sale price can stack the 25% like Sam mentioned. I was able to get an 25% additional off the electric impact ($30), or the 50' air hose with reel ($49), the pressure washer ($60), and the 12" sliding miter saw ($100).
And as of Friday morning the loophole has been closed - no using percent off coupons on items that have parking lot sale pricing (i.e. 12" miter saw, electric impact, etc). I just checked and if you add one to the cart it says, "The item is excluded from certain coupon offers. Please check the coupon for details. " and the 25% coupon will not stack.

Interestingly, you can use an item-specific coupon if it yields a better price than the parking lot sale price. I was able to apply coupon 14581044 to get the electric impact for $37.99 instead of the $39.99 parking lot price. As always, you have to do the math on HF "sale" pricing because rarely can you beat a 25% off coupon price.

I've received 20% off Harbor Freight coupons just like that one posted on the first page FROM harbor freight when I returned some items through the mail about a year ago or so....

I know it's not fake... I remember thinking, why bother sending 20% coupons out, it was in a sheet of three of the same coupon if I remember correctly....

I wish I kept them now, but at the time I just tossed them away...

I think this coupon popped up a few years ago and was identified as a photoshopped fake.

It doesn't work anywhere because it never existed.

If you google fake harbor freight coupons, image shows up from forum posts from 2009 and is identified as a fake.

So you are accidentally committing coupon fraud which has some scary laws to protect stores and not consumers.

That coupon needs to be deleted from the wiki and possibly re-posted with a big red X on it to help prevent other people from getting in trouble.

If an item is on sale, very rarely will there be a coupon which beats the 25% off coupon.

On Thrusday. When the ad prices go active online, you can often price match the parking lot sale price online and then use a 25%. On Friday the store's ad goes active and either they won't or the computer won't allow you to combine them.

Link to the parking lot sale online/ [harborfreight.com]

My store added another 2 tables of returned items from the back of the store. My photos showed 9 or so mini-generators, they were down to 3. The auger I went back for was gone as well. Frown

Has anyone ever tried to get a list of the unadvertised "managers specials"? It always seems like there are 1 or 2 items I don't mind having, and the 25% off coupons work on those. Can anyone explain to me what exactly is further discounted on Saturday and Sunday? It doesn't seem to be open box items. Is it JUST the clearance items? What exactly are the seemingly "refurbished" items with the red sticky price tag? I bought a nail gun last time and it worked wonderfully but had obviously been used and had "DOA" scratched on the housing. I'd just like to get the straight skinny, the clerks at the store don't seem to really know.

Bessey 4in- workshop vise item #209447 it was $49.98 but on clearance for $27.99.

Sounds like a good deal for a bessey, did you post it to the hot deals forum? Those HF vises have a pretty low rating for nearly all of them.

Not sure your meaning. Red tagged items? Here, they do not go down as the ad implies. Sometime on sunday most stores here will drop red tag prices to 1/2 off the red tag. I've hit some stores pretty late sunday and they still were red tagged price and heard the announcement just after lunch at other stores.

There are normal parking lot sale items, those are the everyday items they sell, at the parking lot prices. Those will be that price for the whole weekend. Often, you will find them on sale at the same price, or nearly the same sale price and as long as it's not a parking lot sale, you can also use a 25% coupon. So I don't buy much "sale items" at parking lot sales anymore. That $10 gun will be $10 for the whole weekend.

What I was talking about 'red tag' are returns, open box and otherwise clearance items that have a red tag on them. These might be wrench sets missing a wrench. Generators that were <cough> refurbished. A used once and returned drill. A 12 ton press that got dropped off the forklift and damaged the box and packing material.

Those items are sometimes shown as the "50%, 60%, 75% off final day". In reality,nothing is 50,60,75 and I'm sure at some point they'll get nailed on that.
