Based on latest SDer reports, SOME (not all) coupon is flagged at self checkout and NO LONGER work. HD Clerk/manager will come over and they may or may not manually accept it. Again, some said it works and quite a few said flagged and need Clerk to came over. ----What page are these posts on? Might it be that the coupons were traded and were already used?
Above statement is not true in my area (NC). I used one tonight (11/11/12) at 7:48PM EST and it scanned fine.
Note from mods:
*Friendly reminder again: No buying or selling, including paypal, please. And trades are limited to a max $5 value (i.e. $5 Amazon gc, etc). Official trading rules here, for those not familiar.
Also, please be specific when offering or asking for a trade, and state exactly what you're asking for or offering. Vague offers such as 'have/want gc to trade' or 'have HD coupon, make me an offer' without stating the $ amount of the trade asked for or offered will be deleted, as we can't tell if that offer falls within the above trading guidelines or not. Thank you*
Q: How can I get this deal?
A: You can't. Coupons can no longer be printed - UPDATE 11/2/2012 IF YOU RECEIVED THE EMAIL FOR THE COUPON, YOU CAN NOW PRINT THE COUPON. PRINTING REACTIVATED. as Home Depot disabled the link. Even if you have the e-mail with the link to the coupon - it will no longer work. If you have already printed coupons, as far as we know, they can still be used.
Q: Which stores accept these printed coupons?
Most of them, if not all.
A: See examples below for successful purchases.
Q: So I'm SOL on this deal? Really?
A: Some members are trading them here, please note SD rules for trading and refer to the last few pages of this thread. Also, you can still get some decent coupons from the Zombie Mulch game.
Q: Should I use self check out or an actual cashier?
A: It is recommended you use self check-out if possible. Individual cashiers may scrutinize and question the coupon, call in the manager and then the coupon might be refused. See below.
Q: How do I use the coupon at self check out?
A: You scan the coupon like you scan a product, but scan it after your have scanned all the items you will be purchasing. Do NOT press 'pay now' or any other button before scanning the coupon. Be patient and keep trying until you hear a beep.
Q: Can I use this coupon to buy gift cards?
A: No. And you do not need to post on here saying you tried, because we already know for the 100th time that it DOES NOT WORK ON GIFT CARDS.
Q: Is this good online?
A: No. In-store only.
Q: Can I make copies and give to friends and family or use this coupon multiple times?
A: NO. This is a one-time use only coupon with a unique barcode.
Q: So how much money do I need to spend to save $50?
A: Your pre-coupon total must be at least $100, NOT including tax. Tax does not count toward the $100 minimum purchase.
Well, here's an update. My husband just returned from the Redmond, WA store. He was hassled for using the coupon on Christmas lights, went through a normal line, and never even attempted a GC purchase. The store manager came over and outright REFUSED to accept the coupon off the bat. She said she had "a stack of these stapled in her office" and that "they were all photo copied." My husband (being totally hardheaded) refused her answer, offered to compare his coupon to the other "stack" to show it was NOT a copy, and even pulled out his Pro HD credit card to show her he was a Pro customer. (BTW, he's a software engineer down the road at Microsoft - you don't have to be a contractor to have a Pro card)
It basically came down to her saying that normally she would not accept the coupon because they are thus far calling this coupon "a scam," but she doesn't like to hassle her Pro customers.. So, long story short - there are either a LOT of fellow SD'rs in Redmond, or some major abuse of the coupon went down this evening.. I will be surprised if this one last's come tomorrow..
How can HD call the coupon a scam? Their own site generated the code. That type of manager should be fired, or whoever told her to say that. I would accept HD calling the coupon an error on their part, but to accuse a customer of a scam. I would give them hell.
