(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.

Maybe because they never find any deals?
Impossible...I haven't seen a HD yet that doesn't have yellow clearance tags in at least half of the aisles.

All they need to do is share some photos of SKUs that are about to ripen. They don't have to be a penny yet.
How many people don't have a cell phone with a camera?

Leachers gonna leach .... I used to post penny and .03 deals here and leacher would post how they found it but would NEVER post any deals. ... unless i start seeing posts i am done ...
My district has basically halted my penny finding. It's been well over a year since I've found an item for a penny. I don't really frequent HD anymore because of it. I can't post a deal that I can't find. I used to post many deals though back in the good old days.

There are items at my store but they have born on dates of like December and newer and the prices suck. Even that Delta faucet that I posted a while back which should have at LEAST been at the .03 level was still at the stickered price

There has to be a HD insider on this forum who can give us the inside scoop on what's going on.

About 80%, based on recent statistics.
Statistics can be used to prove anything and 75% of statistics are made up. 40% of people know that.

The point is many people don't have the time to spend 3 hours in HD. And it is a very simple thing in this forum, you see a potential deal and post it. Don't like don't come here.

I've never spent 3 hours in HD.
No need to. I just snap photos as I see yellow tags, well in advance.
Enter in database here and there.

The Longerst I've been in HD is when waitng for them to bring down a pallet of penny items....they are slow as molassas. When they do that I go look for more penny items, but never 3 hours or even close.

If a leech can take the time to go to HD and search for a penny item, they can surely snap a few shots of Clearance items along the way and post them.

i agree 100%, i've never spent 3 hours! but these leaches will spend time looking for penny deals but cannot spend extra 5 minutes snapping photos of markdown items... I have my small spreadsheet of penny items i keep to myself.

do you guys actually find penny items. i use this site ebay.com/local to see whats in the area near me, and i see a lot of penny items in stock. i just haven't tried any yet.
http://www.ebay.com/local/localsc..._ids=20690

for ex. type in lamp under search

and select local retailers only
then select home depot under local retail stores
then in the price section put in $0.01 to $1.00
this will filter out the cheap items.

a definite ymmv, as some don't have a link to the website sku and it may not be as accurate with pricing, so take that into account.

you can also use the milo app for droid it pulls the same info, but way less options.

I actually spent a good amount in time in HD the other day looking for some penny deals and came up empty handed but at least i finally found two computers at my closest store with the price checker app so i no longer have to drive 20 min away just to confirm stock and price.

I know some have mentioned that things that should be a penny have yet to hit that price, I found this too during my trip and i was getting pretty frustrated with it. It's a 6 month plus x days right? I found dates from july that were still ringing up as the clearance sticker price.

hopefully you guys will have better luck with these items that are close to or should be a penny.
