Slickdeals Coupon Usage Rules and Guidelines

Slickdeals New User Guide
(helpful for even some of us older users)

Coupons are in the attachments at the bottom of this wiki. Search for 'Attached Thumbnails' (use CTRL-F). Press search again if you just found this line...

Watch the DATES, we often find and post future coupons.

COUPON POLICY
HF standard policy is (however, YMMV)

One coupon per item, no double dipping on coupons. Fixed sale price (ex. $4.99 screwdriver set) or 25% off any one item - not both.
One percentage off per purchase, per day (generally are 25% off)
You can generally use a 25% coupon on an item on sale. However, some have reported that they have been turned down. If that happens to you, try a different cashier.
Fixed price item coupons will list a max quantity allowed.
One "freebie item" per day (currently are with "any purchase", occasionally a minimum purchase).
Fine print for percentage off coupons exclude some name brands (C-H),air compressors, tool chests, generators, floor jacks, parking lot and other special sales.
Occasionally, HF will offer a percentage off total purchase. Generally, to get a 20% discount the coupon is worded as requiring a specific dollar amount purchase ($99).

(You can generally use a 25% coupon on a sale priced item (fine print exclusions {like parking lot sales still apply) or an online price match. However, some have reported that they have been turned down. If that happens to you, try a different cashier {or store).

INSIDE TRACK CLUB - ITC Membership required by company direction, BUT some cashiers don't care enough to check for your card. YMMV.
Pay close attention to what you're buying. I went through maybe 20 items before I found one that wasn't less simply using the 25% coupon. Several items not on sale were better with the ITC coupon but the trailer for example was $20 less using the 25% coupon over the ITC coupon. One item was not on sale and the ITC coupon was the non-sale price!!

Buck or Less Deals
*Please list with expiration date if price is from a sale and known.*
B&MO = Brick & Mortar (In Store) Only

OTHER INFO
Retail stores should price match the on-line website. Bring printouts to get online price matches in-store.
20% and 25% coupons should work on top of the price match as well.

Home Depot and Lowes have taken printed HF coupons but Your Mileage May Vary.
Taking in full page magazine ad with 20% off coupon and removing at register is best option as coupons don't have obvious Harbor Freight logo or identification on them.

Coupons that have expired and are no longer valid may still be honored or partially honored online. Examples being magazine coupons which are not yet updated. Call customer service with item and coupon numbers and they may be willing to process the order for less on the phone or adjust your online order after it has been placed.
Confirmed by Tastyratz when ordering blue flame welding helmet. $54 @ site 39.99 on coupon, Price adjustment to $43.99 offered on phone.

FREE ITEM Coupons
Current "free item" and "25% off" coupon images are attached below. Some are screen shots of digital coupons from HF or digital magazines and should be honored by all stores. Some are scans of printed coupons; those may be less widely honored.

Thanks for all the coupons listed here.
Does it matter what size they are printed at, and is B&W usually OK?
I don't have access to a color printer Frown
I have printed off a few different ones at the approx. size they usually are in on the flyer. They still look obviously like a photocopy, and the barcodes are pretty blurry.

Also, I am subscribed to this thread. This is the only one of my subbed threads where it will not take me to my last read post when I click on the little icon with the number of unread posts. It just takes me to the very top of the page. Does not act like any of my other subbed threads.
Any thoughts on why, or how to fix this?

B&W is fine. Just make sure the bar code scans. Makes less questions at the registers. Some cashiers will type in the numbers under the bar codes..... but then some probably won't.

When I print them they are a little larger than in the ads. About the size of a business card. Always work fine for me. Plan on going this morning on another run to HF.

Thanks, I hope I don't have any issues showing them a copy of the coupon. It does say on there that the original has to be shown.
They email and provide links to coupons on their website so they really can't say much about a print out. They should also take the code from a smart phone if you forget to bring the print out.
Quote from Lifted4 View Post :
Are there usually HF coupons in the Sunday newspaper?
Yes. There are 3 places to check.
1) A loose ad usually behind the comics.
2) A coupon sheet in one of the coupon packs.
3) The USA section (or whatever its called)

Quote from Kin23 View Post :
Has anyone had any luck in double-dipping their coupons, as in using seperate % off coupons in the same day, even though they say one per day? Or i guess it depends on the individual that rings you out i suppose :x

Just started going to HF and I must say, their coupon acceptance is pretty awesome, not to mention the cheap tools and freebies I get everytime.
I tend to avoid it now a days, but I have visited the same store the same day. I wouldn't call it 'double dipping' because with all the sunday paper, magazine, and online coupons, you don't really reuse the same coupon. Some stores take the coupon or cross out the bar code. Others show less interest when you walk up with a pile and start asking which freebies they have.

I've had no trouble with B&W. Try clearing the cache in your browser to see if it fixes the last message issue. If not, I can poke around google to see if it has come up before. You could also email an admin to see if SDs knows a way to fix it.

29 gallon should last longer and stay cooler since it's belt drive, it's also built "much" better.
Nail guns a fine with both. Rotating tires will be slower on the 21 obviously. Spray paint, depends on area covered but neither are up for it due to low continuous output.

If you are willing to gamble a little check out
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-...cHbSpyrD1U
if you have a northern tool nearby
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/..._200396622
same compressor although "refurbished", I got it for ~$290 with 1 year everything warranty
I always shop on price and in my earlier years, I would have picked the 21 gallon in a heartbeat over the 29 gallon compressor. After owning an oil-less compressor, you will want a oiled one (I know the 21 gallon model is oiled, but it's still loud IMO). If you don't mind springing another $175, the 29 gallon compressor is well worth it. I've had 140psi still in the 29 gallon tank for over a month and it hasn't leaked a pound of air.

I do have that set but sold it and got the 22 polished wrench set comes with both sae and metric with high reviews. Has the most common sizes. Sometimes HF is missing sizes comparable to other brands. When I get home I think I have a Q for that. I am at the pool now and it's really crowded.

Why did you sell it? Just to get the other set with 2 more of each SAE & Metric? I'm curious. Thanks.

I only paid $5.61 for it after 25% coupon. Now I'm wondering if I would have been better going to the 22pc?????

Has ANYONE received the July "newspaper" mailed you your house that has coupons in it? I still haven't and wonder if all I'll get is this booklet with the Grand Opening stuff?

If someone has a link to the July "newspaper" with coupons (or just the coupons for that matter), would you PLEASE post a link. Thank you.

Here's a picture of my morning run to HF. All the coupons that you posted last night for the items in this picture scanned without any problems.
Dude, I've had this HF addition for years! You should see my bins full of freebies!

I haven't been on for about two weeks and missed all these goodies, esp the pnuematic cutoff wheel tool (I already have one but a free one would be nice) Smilie.

I sold it and got my money back so I could buy the 22 piece because it came with both SAE and Metric. So I did need the 9 piece anymore.

If I wanted to get another set, I would get the 22 piece again.

Last couple of weeks or so I've been getting the same thing. First Unread takes me to the top of a page and I'll look at the first few messages and wonder what everyone's talking about. Then I'll back up a couple of pages and see that's where my last unread really was. I haven't tried clearing anything tho.

Someone killed off the June ads (that expired yesterday) from the wiki. They aren't listed under expired either. Could someone please put these links back somewhere for reference?

James - What's the difference between the 22pc that you posted and this one (other than my coupon expired yesterday). But what's the difference in the sets?

The only difference I see is that the cheap set has a 9mm and the other doesn't. The expensive set has a 15mm and the other doesn't. But is that really worth a $3 difference (comparing the coupons)?

I just cleared my cache and it does seem to have worked. Strange that it is only this thread that was affected.
