(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.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

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.

Yes, other stores are listed. The one with full price is about 5 miles from the one with a penny price.
Weird. Of the two stores I check semi-regularly - this isn't the case.

Even though the stores are less than 15 miles apart from each other - they get their product from different DC's.

Does anyone have any inside information about how the clearance markdowns really work?

There are two items that I have been watching now:

456365 Glacier Bay Lyndhurst 8 in. Widespread 2-Handle High-Arc Bathroom Faucet in Mediterranean Bronze BOD 7/19/2012

931793 Pfister Sedona 1-Handle Tub/Shower Faucet in Tuscan Bronze BOD 7/20/2012

Both should have been a penny today (6 months + 9 days, and 6 months + 8 days respectively). However both were still at the .03 level.

I'm beginning to think that the store does a manual mark down to the .01 level. Thoughts?
Getting frustrated here. They STILL aren't a penny. Maybe this store is on the 8 month schedule.

Thanks! Picked up two of 932067 faucets this AM for a penny each.
And I was ->this<- close to getting another one tonight. Had it in my hands.

I spotted in the overstock area, and checked the price checker app to see if it was a penny. The app showed SKU not on file. I hadn't seen that before. Anyway, I found someone to get it down, so I headed over to the self checkout. No one was there - perfect. Started the transaction, scanned it -> and screen said wait for attendant. Crap. Turns out the UPC and SKU had been removed from the system. So there was no record for it. So they made up a price! Said $65.00. I fought with them a bit saying it was a clearance item and they nudged down to $60.00. Jeez thanks Frown

So I walked out empty handed.

Anyone have that happen to them in the past? If so - what did you do?

Same here. I'm also watching some faucets with the 7/20 date as well as some lights with a 7/13 date. All are still sitting at the xx.03 level and I know these stores used to be at the 6 months + 7-10 days schedule.

I'm also seeing instances where one store with in-stock inventory of a particular item will be at full price but other stores with no stock will be at a penny. Looks like it might be time to do some inventory transfers between stores. Wink

Usually they just make up a price similar to your experience. In these cases I just tell them no thanks and walk away like you did. On a couple of occasions though I have actually had the SCO cashier just hand the item back to me and say 'have a great day'.

Similar situation here.
I've been watching on a faucet 385501 whose BOD is 7/10/2012. Still not a penny yet.
Another item I'm watching is a 20 Gal compressor 668442 with BOD 7/31/2012. It's still not even at .03 level yet. Looks like they have changed their schedule. Any insight what's going on here?

Found a Delta shower faucet with SKU 866079 and BOD 5/29/2012 that came up as a penny. Unfortunately the UPC had been removed from the box so the SCO cashier called the mgr who would only offer it for the previous price of $70.

Yeah I was hoping they would have just let me have it. I asked (cause I figured it wouldn't hurt), but she wouldn't go for it.

I have seen the same thing about one store showing a penny for an item where another has it for full price. That doesn't make any sense to me at all.
