Haha.... I bought the metal detector also. It's for my daughter 7 years from now .
I don't even need it but we do have a big lot that I can hunt at.
Because of you.... On Friday I purchased this Metal Detector. Not because I need one (I already have one) but because "some day" in a few years my 3 yr old son and I can go find treasure together (probably wait 4 or 5 yrs). Once I saw the scan of your receipt with the 25% off on this I decided I couldn't pass it up.
Investing in my future - I call it. (Aka. HF addiction)
Yes. I have the 25% from this thread and have used it at least 6 times. I was referring to the free flashlight. Thanks.
I think I will go with the less expensive one since it operates on 110v vs 220v the other one runs off.
So today, I go into HF to order one, but the manager says the HF mail order biz is a separate entity from their store (I knew that, but I figure they can order it and ship to store). and they cannot order it.
He did say he had tire changers in the store about 4-5 years ago (I never remember seeing it).
Have any of you ordered special order items from your local store?
I want to use the 25% coupon on the tire changers.
I did email harbor freight to ask if these tire changers can handle low profile and runflat tires, but didn't hear anyting from them. Does anyone hear have any experience with these HF tire changers?

Reason: fix typo
I don't like to do that because it almost always screws the refunding store in retail.
It seems with there new system, they are able to charge it back to the original store where you purchased the item. I went in and simply asked if I could make return even though I purchased at different HF. Cashier stated that it's no problem. I also noticed that if I state my phone number at the different HF store I show up in there system. Name, address, phone number and customer ID. Before, with old system, I was only in the local store's system where I did most of my shopping.
Anyway, I will be shopping (purchasing) more from HF. That mean more video reviews.
WOw - that is pretty Shady - so untested always means non-working. That's what it always seemed when I bought non-working Cameras a few years ago on Ebay. I guess Tadd is doing the same thing. Glad you got a refund. I wonder if you could have done a Ebay not as described claim and still get your money?
I was just glad to get my money back relatively quick, involving ebay's buyer protection would have dragged into weeks/months. I'm sure Tadd Wholesale's deceptive selling tactics will eventually rub someone the wrong way.
Btw about your question of how they get used stuff from HF? Around here there's a few small business liquidation type stores that specialize in selling returns from big box retailers. I went to one recently that was selling returns from Costco/Home Depot but their price wasn't discounted enough to warrant used/abused merchandise.
Do a google search for store returns liquidation. There are companies that sell that stuff by the pallet for pennies on the dollar. You can also get things that were discontinued or store demos and are not returns.
