(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.

Newbie HD penny person here. It seems like at my HD they always have a person standing over your shoulder watching each person going through self checkout. Frankly being a newbie, I got scared and put the item back in clearance. LOL

Can anyone elaborate checkout techniques. Times of day which are best, and any other pertinent info on checking out. How to get the security tags removed...etc..

thanks to all who respond

Take a friend and have them distract the SCO attendant. I will also wait until the SCO attendant is ringing up someone. Really, it's just getting it done quick. Scan your items, press pay now and then just swipe your credit card.

Yes that is what I do cash is a faster process. Have your penny ready haha. Usually buying multipe random items at once makes it less noticable though. You can also keep watch who is attending the station often they have to go to registers for assistance or sometimes they have regular employees stand they to just hit a button while they are gone, orthey are just taling to other employees and not caring or paying attenion.

Is internet sku # 202715912 this model number UT80522?

I can't find the sku# to this Pressure Washer...
The store has it as 667269 but when it rings up it comes up as a 2700 2.4gpm UT80522D psi but the pressure washer is 2600 at 2.3gpm model UT80522 and I can't find it anywhere besides ebay and on Homelite.com that is has been discontinued

There is three upc codes that go to this sku# 667269
046396554369
046396554932
I don't have record of the third but I know it ends in 241 or 214


Is it normal to have three different upc's and model number to refer to the same exact sku #'s

Also I know this is last years model because the manufacture date is 2010 but it's still at full price. Does anyone have any ideas on what the original sku# or upc code was? It's out of box marked and I did bring this up to the manager and they wouldn't budge on selling it up a generic sku or correct it...
I know sometimes there is at least 2 upc for a item that corresponds to a single sku.

During all my rebuying of items with 50/100 coupon. I came across several items that the upc had changed from when I had originally purchased it. Same product, just a different upc from manufacture.

Cash always seems slower to me because it doesn't always seem to recognize the coins on the first try. With CC, scan your items touch pay now and then just swipe your card. No need to tell the machine what type of payment you are using. Receipt spits out in about 3 seconds.

Crap... well hopefully the new sku goes clearance soon and quickly.

dewalt 18v nicad drill DC759KA now 1 cent.
I only found it thanks to the orangle shirts rearranging the tool dept. No Hilti stuff at .03 level though. I think the Hilti reps had been there recently. Saw other Hilti stuff that had some 20-30% markdown.
