(At one time this thread was rated -5 only because of trashing by SD members which was subsequently cleaned up by moderator. See post #10)

Ryobi router table Model A25RT07, UPC 033287140992, Item 933016, for easy shelf ID the box boldly reads 392 sq inch working surface. Rang up as a penny.

updated title 3/21/10 to include more than just one cent items as some have taken liberty to post general finds, which is fine.

thread closed due to age and lack of regular activity. please continue discussion in the new thread here: https://slickdeals.net/f/7735565-dedicated-thread-home-depot-b-m-ymmv-clearances-xx-06-xx-03-1-cent-deals-and-other-significant-discounts?v=1




GENERAL ADVICE:

BOD: Born on Date, the date listed on most (not all) yellow clearance tags, and is what the 6 month + 6 day clearance cycle is based on. Can be any combination of month/date/year or year/day/month or date/month/year.
SKU: Stock Keeping Unit, this is the store item number, normally 6 digits (xxx-xxx)

Old style tag:
1) Look for yellow or red clearance tags.
2) Look at the date on the tags:
...........Dates < 3 months = price on the tag was usually still current
...........Dates > 3 months = price had usually dropped a bit more
...........Dates > than 6 months = YMMV <--Where people are finding penny bargains Dates > 8 Months are what you are looking for
3) Get a few other items that you need; think of them as fillers! This is to help you avoid unwarranted scrutiny
4) Go to self-checkout, MUTE THE REGISTER! Check prices if need be; you can roll the dice and just scan, return later if a price comes up that is too steep for your wallet. Most registers do not read out the price, so muting may not be necessary.
5) Scan - SCAN ORIGINAL BARCODE NOT THE YELLOW/RED TAG
6) Pay
7) Leave
8) Go home, scan your receipt, allow us to bask in your SD glory!


New style tag (not yet able to be tested but from a HD employee):
Home Depot has changed its clearance reduction policy. It now goes this way:
A clearance item will end in .06 when it has 6 weeks left until going to a penny. This indicates to the employee that they have 6 weeks to sell through.
A clearance item will end in .03 when it has 3 weeks left until going to a penny.
This is new and won't be indicated on older tags, just those printed recently.

HOW TO CHECK STORE INVENTORY AND PRICES FROM IN-STORE COMPUTERS:

Most Home Depot stores have a computer in the front of the store by customer service. This is to allow customers to look up items on the site and try to find in the store or something. You can also use this computer to check local inventory and prices. This is AWESOME when trying to find $0.01 items. Most clerks will say they are out of them once they come up at $0.01, so you can't trust them. If you see them in stock at your store it then becomes a task trying to find them. As noted in most threads, these items will not be marked as $0.01 and will show as something much greater.

1) Find computer in the store. Most departments have their own computers, but a clerk will give you a hard time if they find you using them. All of the stores in my area have a computer by customer service specifically for customers. This means no one will bug you when running through lists of items.
2) Click on the start menu to bring up a list of applications.
3) Choose the "Price Check" application
4) Enter the special 6 digit Home Depot SKU's in the appropriate box and hit Enter.
5) The next screen will display the local price and quantities for 5-10 stores in your area.
6) Head to that department and try to find your treasure!!!

If your store has a barebones computer (or dumbed down kiosk) that only has an internet browser (and the computer is hooked into the HD Store Network) type in:
h t t p://isp.stXXXX.homedepot.com/com/homedepot/mm/sv/inq/en_US/PriceCheckTool.html

The address is case sensitive, and you can replace the XXXX with the store number you want to set as local. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on a cell or tablet that is simply connected to HD's WiFi.

This also works well compared to bringing things up to the self checkout for price checking. I always get mobbed when I try to bring a group of items up for checking. Then if I find something that rings up for a $0.01 I have to still cancel the transaction and come back later to try to sneak through. Enjoy!

Previous deals deleted. If needed please check "revisions" in wiki

How to check store inventory from your home browser:
Replace 1st set of x's with SKU, 2nd set with store number. Sometimes I find the checker doesn't work if you do not have home depot's site open in another tab, if you still get an error browse for a bit on HD's site until it works.

Another inventory checker. Change store #.
You may have to open HD website in another tab for it to work.

Damn, no Dyson's in my area. Thanks for the post, great deal at .03

I don't trust the inventory checker at all. Both the online inventory checker AND the in-store kiosk said Wallingford, CT store had 0 in stock, when there were 4 brand new in box on the shelves, and one tagged display vacuum in the aisle. I would just go to your local store(s) and check around. Wallingford has 3 different aisles with vacuum stock overhead....gotta check every aisle.


Happy Hunting!

Is there something wrong with not wanting to feed the Leeches???????

Why was my post removed?
I missed it but got Leatherman Kick for the penny as well as a rubbermaid 45qt (tag says 42) dual action wastebasket half full of trash. They kept the trash and gave me the can. (I sometimes act an ass)

I tried the inventory checker and had wonkie results. so YMMV

BTW I post deals on this and other deal sites so people with the same values can take advantage of them. I may not be as educated on HD inventory as I am with some other retail stores, but I don't concider the people that take advantage of this information "leaches". Concider how many deals we have goten from other topics, by those standards we are all "leaches" IMO

What's the " Leatherman Kick" find? I didn't see it listed prior, or in a global search.

I don't consider myself a leach, even though I'm the OP and despite being a homepage follower find perhaps one thing a year to add. My local stores been great about not having old inventory. But I can understand use of the term.

Thanks for the post on the Dyson. The online inventory checker showed 15 in stock (which I knew couldn't be true). I went to three stores in the area and there were none to be found...computer check in the store confirmed this. Oh well, I found a Makita 1/2 electric impact to keep my eye on.

Went to a local HD yesterday and saw a few faucets that should've been a penny but the manager had covered the sku and put their own price tag on the item. Funny thing, the price was more than the lowest clearance price. This was the first time that I'd seen HD try to pull that move.

Went to three Post offices today to pick up some moving packs (with lowes 10% off coupons inside)
THE COUPONS ARE NO LONGER IN THERE!!!MadMadMadMad
Instead, you get the pink folder which looks the same, but when you open it up, there is no longer a tear out coupon. Instead there is 15 digit code that you are supposed to enter at Lowesmoving.com and they mail the coupon to you.
Highly doubtful that they will mail more than one per address/name.


TLDR; Hurry to post office and get as many moving paks as you can before they run out of the old and institute the new.
