Slickdeals Coupon Usage Rules and Guidelines

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

COUPON POLICY
Harbor Freight's official coupon policies and usage instructions can be read here:
How to use Coupons [harborfreight.com]

However, for your convenience, here is a summary of the kind of coupons HF offers and the important things to know when using them:
  • One coupon per item, no double dipping on coupons. For example, you cannot combine an item-specific coupon advertising a socket set for $4.99 and stack that with a 20% coupon. You must choose one or the other.
  • Prices on item-specific coupons are not always better than using a 20% off coupon. Be sure to check the pre-coupon price of the item online or on the shelf in-store to compute the after 20% discount price and compare it to your item coupon price.
  • Fixed price item coupons will list a purchase QTY limit for that item at coupon price.
  • One percentage off coupon per purchase, per day. 20% off coupons are ubiquitous and can be found year round. Occasionally HF will release 25% off coupons, usually during holidays and other random times during the year with short periods of validity.
  • You can use 20% off coupons on top of sale prices with the following fine print exceptions not already mentioned:

    Excludes the following items:
    • Inside Track Club Membership
    • Extended Service Plans
    • Gift Cards
    • Open box items
    • Items advertised in a "Parking Lot Sale" flyer
    • Compressors
    • Floor Jacks
    • Saw Mills
    • Storage (Tool) Cabinets, Chests or Carts
    • Trailers
    • Trenchers
    • Welders

    Excludes the following brands:
    • Admiral
    • Badland
    • CoverPro
    • Daytona
    • Diablo
    • Earthquake
    • Franklin
    • Grant's
    • Hercules
    • Holt
    • Jupiter
    • Maddox
    • Portland
    • Predator
    • Stik-Tek
    • StormCat
    • Union
    • Vanguard
    • Viking

  • It is exceedingly rare, but HF has been known to offer percentage off total purchase coupons. Normally they have been 20% off entire purchase over $100, 15% off $75, or 10% off $50. The last time HF has released such a coupon was back in 2015, however.
  • FREE ITEMS: There are quite a few items that can be had for free with a coupon. The coupon will have one of the following three terms: No Purchase Required, With Any Purchase, With Minimum Purchase of $x.xx. Like the % off coupons, these are also limited to one per customer per day.

WHERE TO FIND COUPONS
You can find a small assortment of coupons at the bottom of this wiki including a 20% off coupon and some freebie coupons. But the best online resource for finding copies of HF coupons will be through a site a fellow slickdealer has put together and maintains:
http://www.hfqpdb.com/

This site will always have the best percentage-off coupon available as well as just about every free item coupon that is in existence. In addition, it will also have a plethora of item-specific fixed-price coupons. Fortunately, next to each item-coupon shows what the current pre-coupon price of the item is and what the price would be if a 20% coupon were applied to determine if it would be better to use a 20% coupon on the item.

There is also a nifty sub-page that will allow you to try and find available coupons by item number:
http://www.hfqpdb.com/tools

Online and Physical Third-Party Publications
You can find an assortment of HF coupons in various online and local publications/newspapers, coupon packs you get in the mail, and certain magazines that typically target the men's handyman/mechanic/auto enthusiast/outdoorsman demographic.

Here are some online publications:
Progressive Farmer [dtnpf-digital.com] This is a direct link to the September 2016 issue. To view other months, click the archives button at the top left then use the "Thumbs" view to find the page with the coupons.
Clipper Clipper NorthWest [nwclipper.com] Sweet site, locate the "harbor freight" line items in the list. They usually have the "good" lower priced coupons... like the $139 solar panels and the $9.99 caliper coupons ;-)
Boats US Magazine [boatusmagazine.com] Feb/Mar 2016 issue, pg 66. Search back issues for other ads.
Issuu.com [issuu.com] This site contains a bunch of digital copies of popular magazine publications (albeit not very well organized and curated). You can browse under certain categories like "Vehicles" to find magazines that will regularly have HF coupons.
Here are a list of some printed magazine publications you will frequently find a page or two of coupons towards the back of the magazine:
4 Wheel & Off Road, American Rifleman, Boating, Car & Driver, Cycle World, Diesel Power, Dirt Rider, Discover, ESPN, Field & Stream, Flying, Four Wheeler, Grass Roots Motorsports, (The Family) Handyman, Home Theater, Hot Bike, Hot Rod, Import Tuner, Jp Magazine, Kiplinger's (Personal Finance), Maxim, Men's Journal, Men's Fitness, Men's Health, Mini Truckin', Money, Mopar Muscle, Motor Boating, Motor Cyclist, Motor Trend, Off-Road, Outdoor Life, Playboy, Popular Mechanics, Popular Photography, Reader's Digest, Rolling Stone, Popular Science, Science Illustrated, Shotgun News, Shutterbug, Smithsonian, Successful Farming, Transworld Motocross, Truck Trend, Via(for AAA members), Wood, Woodworker's Journal, Westways(for AAA members).
COUPONS/DEAL ALERTS VIA TEXT
Text the word TOOLS to 222377 for coupons and sale alerts. Up to 4 messages per month.
Message and data rates may apply.
Text the word TEXTSTOP to cancel.
INSIDE TRACK CLUB
Harbor Freight's "Inside Track Club" gives you exclusive access to other product coupons not normally available to the general public as well as 1 hour early access to Harbor Freight's parking lot sales. The product coupons offered will often feature more niche items or items generally never seen in the normal repeating assortment of product coupons found in the aforementioned public sources.

The value of this membership has received mixed reviews as many deals that are offered are no better or sometimes worse than simply using a 20% off coupon on the advertised item. However, since you are only allowed to use the 20% off coupon once per day, it may help to purchase a variety of needed items at a discount in one trip.

Currently the membership fee is $29.99 for 1 year or $44.99 for two years. Either comes with a free $10 gift card for signing up.

To find out more information or to sign-up, please click here [harborfreight.com].
Parking Lot Sales
Harbor Freight runs a parking lot tent sale at least once a quarter which runs for 3 days over a weekend starting on Friday. They will typically start handing out the 4-page flyer for this event in stores 6-8 weeks in advance. The items advertised are mostly the same collection of items you regularly see advertised in their other flyers and publications issued throughout the year. The advertised prices for these items are usually the same as the prices you see on the item-specific coupons found year-round. The difference here being that you can purchase these items at their usual coupon price without actually needing a coupon. Remember, however, that you cannot stack any percentage-off coupons on any item advertised in their parking lot flyer.

The biggest deal with the parking lot sale is that they sell, at a discount, all their open-box items (usually customer returns), cosmetically damaged items, or items that are missing non-essential parts or parts that can be replaced. On the first day (Friday), prices for these items are as-marked with special stickers. For most items, these starting prices are no better than or worse than the prices you can get for these items in new condition with coupon. On Saturday, they offer them at 25% off the marked price which, typically, is only marginally better than usual coupon prices. But on Sunday at around 3PM, they increase the markdown to 50% off the marked price which is where you can really make out like a bandit, but be aware that a lot of the big-ticket items are well picked-over by this time. Some have reported that you can sometimes make an offer to the manager for remaining open-box items near closing hours on Sunday.

Lastly, be aware that all open-box items are sold as-is with only a 5 day return policy.
OTHER USEFUL HF INFORMATION
Product User Manuals
You can obtain an online copy of the manual for many items by taking the part number and inserting it into the following URL format along with a specified 1000-item number range. For example, if you needed the manual for item #41653 which is in the 1000-range of 41000-41999 format the URL like the following:
http://www.harborfreight.com/manuals/41000-41999/41653.PDF [harborfreight.com]
Price adjustments
Coupons that have expired and are no longer valid may still be honored or partially honored by discretion of the HF customer service representative or in-store manager.

For online orders, call customer service with the 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.
HF CONTACT INFO

18 Volt Cordless 1/4" Hex Impact Driver is a pass. Out of the box ready to go. Really low cost, but works just as good and looks just as good as the more expensive brand names. I should have bought this a long time ago.

I attached a Q for anyone who wants to get one.

Happy Shopping!!!

Complain on twitter, I think that link is in the wiki. They wouldn't allow it on air compressors though, that was one of the very first exclusions.

$149 is the common coupon for that compressor. I'd post it, but stuck at work and forgot my phone.

Attached. I'd recommend you get warranty for it too just in case.

I've got a question for you frequent customers - Today I saw 2 different customers with a bunch of those blue 36 LED AAA flashlights. One guy had about 3 and the other was close to 10 of them. It was crowded there today and these guys were about 4 - 5 people ahead of me so I couldn't ask them why. What am I missing - what do guys do with so many of these lights?

They both hand, and have a magnetic back. Ever work on a car and can't get that damn huge trouble light in just the right spot? Stick one of these back there. Go camping? Hang it from a loop near the top of the tent for general lighting. Stick it to the stove when cooking after dark.

They make great stocking stuffers, but wait,.. there's more.

Are all those free coupons ITC coupons even though they don't say it? Today the cashier scanned it and nothing happened, she looked at the coupon for a second or two , then hit a button on the register ad it came off. Was that the ITC button you think?
Possibly just any customer number will suffice but I can't be sure.

the magnets on them suck (well more like the glue they use on them) but when they fall off grab some of the .99 cent super glue or epoxy (your choice) and replace it with a few of the 67488 rare earth magnets.


but yes they are very handy flashlights
