(At one time this thread was rated -5 only because of trashing by SD members which was subsequently cleaned up by moderator. See post #10)

Ryobi router table Model A25RT07, UPC 033287140992, Item 933016, for easy shelf ID the box boldly reads 392 sq inch working surface. Rang up as a penny.

updated title 3/21/10 to include more than just one cent items as some have taken liberty to post general finds, which is fine.

thread closed due to age and lack of regular activity. please continue discussion in the new thread here: http://slickdeals.net/f/7735565-dedicated-thread-home-depot-b-m-ymmv-clearances-xx-06-xx-03-1-cent-deals-and-other-significant-discounts?v=1




GENERAL ADVICE:

BOD: Born on Date, the date listed on most (not all) yellow clearance tags, and is what the 6 month + 6 day clearance cycle is based on. Can be any combination of month/date/year or year/day/month or date/month/year.
SKU: Stock Keeping Unit, this is the store item number, normally 6 digits (xxx-xxx)

Old style tag:
1) Look for yellow or red clearance tags.
2) Look at the date on the tags:
...........Dates < 3 months = price on the tag was usually still current
...........Dates > 3 months = price had usually dropped a bit more
...........Dates > than 6 months = YMMV <--Where people are finding penny bargains Dates > 8 Months are what you are looking for
3) Get a few other items that you need; think of them as fillers! This is to help you avoid unwarranted scrutiny
4) Go to self-checkout, MUTE THE REGISTER! Check prices if need be; you can roll the dice and just scan, return later if a price comes up that is too steep for your wallet. Most registers do not read out the price, so muting may not be necessary.
5) Scan - SCAN ORIGINAL BARCODE NOT THE YELLOW/RED TAG
6) Pay
7) Leave
8) Go home, scan your receipt, allow us to bask in your SD glory!


New style tag (not yet able to be tested but from a HD employee):
Home Depot has changed its clearance reduction policy. It now goes this way:
A clearance item will end in .06 when it has 6 weeks left until going to a penny. This indicates to the employee that they have 6 weeks to sell through.
A clearance item will end in .03 when it has 3 weeks left until going to a penny.
This is new and won't be indicated on older tags, just those printed recently.

HOW TO CHECK STORE INVENTORY AND PRICES FROM IN-STORE COMPUTERS:

Most Home Depot stores have a computer in the front of the store by customer service. This is to allow customers to look up items on the site and try to find in the store or something. You can also use this computer to check local inventory and prices. This is AWESOME when trying to find $0.01 items. Most clerks will say they are out of them once they come up at $0.01, so you can't trust them. If you see them in stock at your store it then becomes a task trying to find them. As noted in most threads, these items will not be marked as $0.01 and will show as something much greater.

1) Find computer in the store. Most departments have their own computers, but a clerk will give you a hard time if they find you using them. All of the stores in my area have a computer by customer service specifically for customers. This means no one will bug you when running through lists of items.
2) Click on the start menu to bring up a list of applications.
3) Choose the "Price Check" application
4) Enter the special 6 digit Home Depot SKU's in the appropriate box and hit Enter.
5) The next screen will display the local price and quantities for 5-10 stores in your area.
6) Head to that department and try to find your treasure!!!

If your store has a barebones computer (or dumbed down kiosk) that only has an internet browser (and the computer is hooked into the HD Store Network) type in:
h t t p://isp.stXXXX.homedepot.com/com/homedepot/mm/sv/inq/en_US/PriceCheckTool.html

The address is case sensitive, and you can replace the XXXX with the store number you want to set as local. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on a cell or tablet that is simply connected to HD's WiFi.

This also works well compared to bringing things up to the self checkout for price checking. I always get mobbed when I try to bring a group of items up for checking. Then if I find something that rings up for a $0.01 I have to still cancel the transaction and come back later to try to sneak through. Enjoy!

Previous deals deleted. If needed please check "revisions" in wiki

How to check store inventory from your home browser:
Replace 1st set of x's with SKU, 2nd set with store number. Sometimes I find the checker doesn't work if you do not have home depot's site open in another tab, if you still get an error browse for a bit on HD's site until it works.

Another inventory checker. Change store #.
You may have to open HD website in another tab for it to work.

Ha! Yeah I got a D5100 from the 50% coupon month and the guy told me that it was a kiosk order that was never picked up and therefore never used. Get it home and it has some awful HP 8gb card in it with a couple of pictures of someone's kitchen in it. It appeared as though it was used for probably only those 3 shots so I didn't care laugh out loud

Nope, paid 48.03 for it. But I called the phone number inside the package for Dremel (which also does Rotozip customer service, go fig) and they are shipping me the replacement parts.

Hey guys went to home depot for my first penny hunt. So just a feeler I went for a Hunter Augusta sku 128731 ceiling fan. It showed discontinued on The website and 5 in stock. So being the first time, I tried to find a BOD, and only could find one box, that said 3.9.12. So I still tried checking out with it, and I got the regular price. Just gotta wait till September 9th. But yea question for all, does the iPhone barcode scanner app from home depot reflect penny deals?

Same in my area. Looks like the BOD + 6 months and 10 days is not consistent.

I went to my local depot to return something, and I decided to also go Penny deal hunting. First thing I did was look up my home depot discontinued list (thank u iOS reading list and home depot product location). So I went to all the items that were discontinued. They all were at regular price, with the white tag. So FYI that discontinued less does not equal penny nor clearance yellow tag. Then after being met with failure. Decided to go around the entire HD, to see what yellow tag specials I could get. Soo everything I looked at had a BOD (yellow tag date) ranged from 5/29 (outdoor furniture and acc) to 7/20 (bath faucets and power tools). So the earlier I can possibly get a deal is November.

After two days, I've come to a couple of conclusions.

Penny deals exist only in low sales stores.

Penny deals do not exisit at all high high traffic home depots since
a) they have enuff buyers to get their products out the door at regular price.
B) clearance tags help sweeten the deal to possible to shoppers who would have over looked the
Product at retail price
C) higher selling store have better inventory upkeep, so when's product at a penny, they quickly move
Them from shelves, since they employ a lot more people.


If you find penny deals at high selling stores, please share.

I find the most penny and .03 prices at high volume stores. The employees are so busy answering customer questions, they never have time to update the prices.

I don't find a thing at the large busy store just off the main highway or the dinky local one that I'm surprised they bother to keep open.

The inventory checker always shows zilch on the six closest stores. :-(

LG DLGX3361V gas dryer [lg.com]

LG Washers WM3360HVCA [lg.com]

Electric Dryer also at .03 level.
