(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.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

thread closed due to age and lack of regular activity. please continue discussion in the new thread here: http://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.

Anyone else seeing that the SKU numbers do not show up in the HD system anymore when they are approaching the penny date? I have been seeing quite a few show up as N/A when I check them. I am in Northern CA.
How does this work how do you know what is going for a penny

Seems that they are clearing out that particular location and not a nationwide sale. YMMV

Not nationwide. They are closing that particular store and you need to use the incognito work around to get access to the items 10-40% off.

I can verify that the work around is still working as I looked at a Milwaukee M12 12-volt combo kit side by side. One window was normal HD and other window was the incognito work around and the prices were 20% different.

Get in on this now before it's over. Quite a few items with the 20% off discount haven't been this low since 2012 and even then they were only $5-$9 cheaper. So this is it if you want that power tool you've been hankering for.

What type of items? I tried some Martha Stewart mirrors last month, and they still were .03, even with a BOD of Nov '12

A fireplace iron log holder? The one that goes in the fireplace and holds the burning logs? I'm not sure of the actual name.

I went to one store yesterday and another today and both times the stores were moving around clearance stuff and scanning product. I'm hoping this means some price reductions are coming.

But one of the supervisors did explain to me that corporate tells them to go clear stuff out of there our of the blue like every 3 months or so, but never know ahead of time. He confirmed that HD is literally throwing out merchandise that doesn't sell after it's been sitting around for a while. He agreed that it's f'd up that they would throw it out rather than reduce it and wasn't too happy that he had to do that, but said he had to or would be fired.

Found out tonight by surprise that the Kohler Simplice k-648-vs is $0.01. Cashier stopped me at the self check out before I could finish check out and refused to let me buy it.

Manager on duty was holding the line, then offered it to me for last known clearance price of $99, but eventually I talked him into letting me buy it for $50.

Considering that the soap dispenser alone goes for $60 on Amazon and the same model without the soap dispenser ( K-647-VS ) sells for $291, this was still a pretty smokin' deal.

Of course, I still wish I had just rung it and paid the $0.01 and then rung my other items... LMAO
