(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.

Agree. If I don't use something what I got for free I give it away for free.
LOL @ stating what you do.
If you don't agree with people trading then fine. But expecting everyone else to be like you? wtf
A lot of people get $5 Amazon from swag bucks... for FREE!

Just came back from the local store where they've done a major cleanup. A lot of the yellow tagged things I was following (mostly cleaning supplies) are simply gone and I doubt they sold out, the clearance endcap in the electrical area is gone, other things are changed as the shelves are now utilized for more profitable retail....

Curious if it's just here or if it's national.

I often find the clearance endcap to be overpriced open items that are missing parts. I.e. Ridgid cordless tool pack that is missing the impact driver and a battery for $385 down from $499. Not really a clearance price. I'd pick it up for $200, maybe.

They're moving stuff here too. Probably some sort of seasonal thing is what I'm thinking, but who knows.

pretty sure it's 675283

I did a "view source" and searched for SKU - that's what came up - then when I search for that SKU on homedepot.com, I see your item. Cant guarantee it... but pretty sure.

At my local store, the in-store price was 100 for that sku. I could have pricematched if I could have found one. They were showing stock, but it turns out they had some other 12v impact driver kit in stock, at full price. It had a different model number and sku. They probably miscounted in the last inventory.

I have never gotten a .01 deal. The Roybi is showing in stock at a store about 35 min from me. Would you guys say it would be worthwhile to drive out there and try to get it? I really really would like to have it (even for more than .01)

As a general rule, I don't go out of my way looking for tool deals even if they show in stock. The reps from all of the different vendors seem to do a pretty good job of picking up any old merchandise. I've been disappointed many times looking for a penny tool that shows one in stock!

Home Legend Hand Scraped Gunstock Oak Engineered hardwood flooring
