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.

Keep your eyes out for Intermatic Lamp Timer with purple packaging (clear package).

UPC 078275113244

http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-...B000HEFC3Y

Found at North Haven, CT Home Depot. Rang up at $0.01 but the lady refused to sell it to me for that price and charged the last recent price of $3.50 (16.xx originally). She filled out a blue tag to have the price changed in the computer or the timers taken away.

I've had my eyes on router tables since someone posted the $39 clearance price a few weeks ago. Only the Ryobi Intermediate tables are available, and the shelf tags all still say $99. Haven't seen any generator markdowns, either. But congratulations to folks who luck out and get something this inexpensively. nod

I can confirm this router table is $0.01 in the computer @ a pearland (Houston area) HD. It is the "beginner" table. The yellow clearance tag was marked $79. Unfortunately, I wasn't fast enough at the self checkout, and the employee stopped the transaction. Ended up getting it for $20.01 after manager looked up something.

$20 is a fair enough price. I'll have to double-check the HD by my house and see what it scans for, if it's the same router table.

if the .01 are rare, why are so many of us finding them?

There is usually a key date, items older than that are 1 cent...what is the clearance date on the yellow tags for the router table?

Screw them. That is BS and I think the same thing happened to me. I was looking for the Greenlee fishrod and I found a 15 foot version (all the rest were Klein so it stood out). Stupid me went to the CS desk asked for the price, and the cashier scanned it, looked at another cashier, and then that cashier rang it up on another computer.

She said asked me if there were several over there, I said no it was the only one, and she asked for it and put it behind the counter. She said, "it wasn't even in the system, she had to look in another system to find it". WTF is that? She said the cheapest she could sell it was the 29.99 price it last sold at. What a load of crap. So I guess that may have been my chance at a good clearance item, but I'll never know for sure. Mad

If you do find some of the .01 stuff, instead of the self check out, get a bunch of misc stuff and have the cashier check you out. they use the scanner to scan everything, and it doesnt say the price out loud. They dont look at the register after each scan, so it will likely escape notice, as long as you dont buy 20 things and have a .20 bill.
I did do self check out for a single .01 glostick. Cashier wasnt paying attention, and i was thru in about 10 seconds. Hit finish and pay immediaty.

Well, not a penny but I grabbed a Ryobi tiller that started at $200 for 62. It's the only electric model I know of if you want to go in search of... or pm me for details. It, and the paperwork, are in the car and it's some 2 degrees out there so no details now.

But my question is this. The clearance tag was marked twice the selling price, so it was a 50% reduction. How long before it would have gone down again... asking another way what's the time frame between reductions?

One-cent items do exist but are not easily discovered and are extremely ymmv b+m store specific

I recommend self check-out (charge+bag+receipt+run) but I have used a clueless green cashier who allowed me to pick up more of the same one-cent items after the first one-cent item was discovered.

If you think an item is one cent, just call before you go in and make sure. Ask them to hold it for you and go right in and buy it. Use cash, though.
