(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.

I saw this on clearance at one store for 10.03 from 39.97

I am not sure if it is on clearance at every store, but a lot of stores in my area don't show stock anymore.

Saw this Ridgid 2-1/2" 15 gauge angle finish nailer for $43.03 (Reg $169) in Home Depot yesterday.
Flippers are getting around $100 on ebay.
Sku 300-560 is not showing up online.
I'm thinking its different than the current model they are selling. Sku 1000015609.
In store, the different Sku's gave different prices.
I think clearance item is model R250AFA, where the current model is R250AFE.
Again, not 100% sure.

ADDED FINDS:
Milwaukee 20-piece Shockwave Impact Driver Set $6
SKU 1000-015-980 (no longer on website)

Lufkin 100 ft. Tape Measure $9 (Was $16.97)
SKU 620-341

Oatey 1 in. OD Tube Cleaning Brush $.80 (Was $3.19)
SKU 313-274

Ryobi 12-Volt HP1 Compact Rechargeable Battery Pack $9.98 (Was $22.97)
SKU 584-538 (no longer on website)

Nice finds on batteries. Repped. Only 3-year warranty on those, but still worth a shot at those prices.
Anybody know if Ridgid is dropping the 1.6ah and 3ah from their line, or replacing with new generation technology?
Looks like they are going to the 2ah and 4ah now.

Yes, the new batteries they are stocking are 2ah and 4ah.

I did manage to find one 3ah battery that was in a small cardboard box. It was so inconspicuous I probably could have waited till it hit a penny.

Bosch 18V Cordless Angle Grinder with LBOXX Bare Tool BOD 8/30/13 Was $189.00, Now $48.93 [homedepot.com]

The terrible pic I took of the tag looks like 014-556 for a SKU (maybe 914-556). The box in my store has a $179 clearance sticker on the front (the $48 was on the shelf below), so I'm guessing it'll make a penny if the workers don't realize what they're tagging.

So, what is your method for clearance items that you actually really need? Get them at their final markdown, or wait to get a great deal for a penny each and risk not getting them at all? Or try to make out for a penny and negotiate back to the most recent good clearance price (75% off)?

I use this url;

homedepot.com/webapp/catalog/servlet/Bopis2OverLay?R=203183985&storeId=0&catalogId=10053&storeSkuNum=183945&locStoreNum=11111

I just replace the number after storeSkuNum= with the 6 digit sku or the internet sku. Ignore the picture and info about the generator on the page, the numbers relate to the storeSkuNum

The inventory numbers may be unreliable when the item is no longer valid in an area.

Limited availability means 1, a number means 1+ the number

Of course YMMV, don't expect to find to find the actual quantity in the store every time.

In that URL - if you replace 202043356 with the Internet #, it will show the correct item ID. However, the checker doesn't appear to be accurate there either.

For instance, if you try the "Homer 5 gallon bucket", the internet # is 100087613, and the sku is 392301. It's not showing any in stock at my local store - which is obviously not correct. When I browse via the homedepot.com main page - it shows 889.

I think Home Depot has gone out of their way to disallow third party inventory checkers. They are using a different mechanism for checking inventory now and appear to be hiding how they are doing it.

Hmm. This appears to work:

http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/c...eNum=19320

Let me try another item and see if it's accurate for a low inventory sku.

I wonder why on earth they have two different SKU numbers. I tried another SKU (138266) and it doesn't have a store SKU. Frustrating!!!
