(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.

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.

Seems like all HD inventory searches online are dead.

But you can use the in-store computer terminals to check inventory/price.

Use the Price Check link and enter the 6 digit in-store sku number. Sometimes you have to enter 1000 before the sku.

Also, I have found that you can find the in-store sku for clearance items on the Home Depot website by looking at the page source.

Unfortunately, it only shows you like 6 stores nearby vs setting a radius. And you can't change store numbers in the app either.

ok thanks for the reply.

Question 1 Is there a way to check inventory other than using store computer (on home computer persay)?

Question 2 I have been thread surfing and so the best way to find/monitor these sale items is by finding clearance tags instore and checking the instore computer to check/confirm price?

Question 3 is there a way to use instore computer to find these deals without simply browsing the isles and spotting them.

Thanks

1. No
2. Yes and No. I find it easier to use the computer price check and search for brands that I am interested in.
3. Use the in-store computer and price check by brand. So in the search box type in Dewalt. It shows all penny items first. You can also refine the search for clearance only items, etc. It has plenty of flexibility.

How do you refine the search by clearance items? I know the penny items have a little icon next to them but it would be nice to see items before they hit a penny

There is a "refine search" button at the top left. Click it and then select clearance and hit back to results.
