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.

Went to HF today; Was able to use one 20% off coupon on a clearance item. Guess the rules have changed again. Also found out that the restriction on 20% coupons only applies to the specific items on sale this weekend. Could use 20% off coupons on anything else in the store. You have to walk around with the sale paper in your hands and check that they are not on sale that weekend. But you still can only use one coupon per day. Bummer!!! I really appreciated the time the Raleigh, NC store manager took to explain the 20% off coupon restrictions to me. Its guys like him that make shopping at HF fun.

Yeah both the Raleigh and Durham managers seem like pretty good guys. I usually go to the one on Capital but I went to the Durham one recently and was finally able to use a few rainchecks that were almost a year old! Durham seems to have a better selection on some things, like the storehouse assortments for instance.

Some are not so good but most are well worth the money. With there hand tools if you keep the recite, they are warranted for life. With most items at HF web site you will see a 1-5 star rating. & yes they post bad ratings. I have been shopping with them for 2 years now, and love them.
Example I needed a 12" Sliding Miter saw cost $600.00 new at the hardware store or $150.00 to rent for a week.
At Harbor Fright with a coupon I was able to get 1 for $110.00. (a 2 year Extended warranty cost $20.00 for a total of $130.00 still less than I could rent 1 for a week)
Now the $600.00 saw is a better saw but not $500.00 better. At the time the way I looked at it if it lasted the week I need it than it paid for itself.
I have used it for over a year now still going strong & i love it.
Once again most of there tools are well worth the moneynodSmilieEmbarrassmentlaugh out loudyummyworship

When you don't want to impart any texture onto the part you're blasting, like on delicate parts with critical machined surfaces. Soda blasting uses industrial granulated baking soda that breaks down upon impact, making the soda almost non-recyclable (you technically can, but with each impact it gets finer and finer, until its all dust).

Sand / glass beads can also lodge themselves in nooks and crannies in a part, which can be difficult to remove later. Soda dissolves in water, so it washes away completely.

Or if you want to get the paint off fiberglass, sand/glass bead will destroy the fiberglass, where baking soda is mild enough to remove the paint without damaging the gelcoat.

what do y'all think of anything HF has to offer against this

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00265M9TM

I like it's 4-stroke, no fuel mixing. The free shipping makes me think it's really a $170 item.
