Home Depot Deal Alerts & Discussion Thread

This thread can be used for when you have a Home Depot deal alert or subject you wish to discuss, but don't want to create a whole stand alone thread. 

Can be used for the separate discussion thread requirement of the  The BLF Deal Alert Thread for Home Depot related postings.

Here is a link to the HD Inventory Tracker, but it doesn't seem to work at the time of this posting.

 

EDIT: dchomak has found a couple interesting links to aid in HD deal finding as follows:

Yep, no deals at Home Depot right now, but that will change.

Here is something though, Lowes just started to clear out their inventory of Bessey clamps and vises. It seems Home Depot has picked up that line and offers this set of 4 Bessey bar clamps.

Folks, for those that are new, dchomak is the undisputed king of deal findings, especially at Lowes and Home Depot. I mean seriously, the dude has found legendary deals at those stores.  As I have said in the past, he has the finder power.

He should be the author of this thread.  If he were to create one, I would gladly retire this one.  If I had such power on BLF.

That doesn't sound like a bad deal.  Lowes had the  single 36" version for $6.98, but I bought the last one at the Harbison, Columbia SC store.

I picked one of these up today at the West Hartford, CT HD.  I don't know if all stores will have this deal or not.  After I got it home I saw that it has a lot of bad reviews.  Near as I can tell, screws come loose in the motor head and wipe out the motor.  I will have a look see.

Large battery pack, I wonder what's inside!

I thought for sure it would have the Chinese LS IMR's, but NO.  It's full of 6 pairs, 12 cells total, of Samsung 1300mAh IMR

Maybe some Threadlock, if you can identify and access the screws in question.

Can’t forget about the Cree Led bulb deal that’s been going on online.
Worth a mention if anybody hasn’t seen it yet.

Also the West Hartford HD isn’t bad. I like it better than the one in derby.

Cree Led at HD

They have 5 dollar led bulbs online, it’s the cheapest I know of anywhere to get 60watt equivalent Led bulbs.

Don’t know if it’s going to expire anytime soon, but I bought them a year ago for the 10 a piece, and it’s only the 60 watt equivalents that are discounted.

There’s a 10 quantity order limit. Home depot is the only place I know that carries this discount, and it’s a huge one.

EDIT: Did a little research and it seems it’s very sensitive to where you live. These guys at slickdeals have a breakdown of price by state, I guess it’s dependent on subsidies from local energy companies.

WOW 1.98 a bulb in vermont…if winter comes and I’m there for the mountains and this deal is still on I’ll definitely be stocking up.

This is not about a great price, but rather about a great idea.
I have a commercial property that needed a better light fixture in an office restroom. Here is a picture of the ugly light fixture that was there (shame on me) and picture of what I did to make it better. The solution was at Home Depot and cost $19.97




Done!

Here is what is inside

What makes this so attractive to use is that any cheap light fixture is at least $10 and needs to be wired in. Add to that the cost of a bulb. This solution is $20 and just screws into place and as an added benefit it is already LED.

I have bought some Duraloops from him before at a very low price. Legendary indeed!

Thanks for the kind words, but it seems I jumped the gun on the string trimmer deal. $139 marked down to $58 was not as good of a deal as I thought. Now they are $38! (IF you can find one)
I bought another. Silly

I checked as soon as you posted that weed whacker deal the first time, but my closest store didn't have them marked down at all.  I should try stop in on the way home tonight to be sure.

There has been a massive security breach at HD, the same one that Target suffered, only it seems it took much longer for HD to notice. In fact it wasn’t until banking officials and law enforcement clued them in did they have any idea.

This leads to another “deal”, Home Depot is offering free credit monitoring in Canada, i assume the US gets or will get the same

Well that sucks.  Were you printing or did your shirt pop up?  Or open carry?

It's basically a certainty that both of my cards got hacked and will be used soon enough, I used them way too often at HD.

No he saw my IWB and gun when I pulled the ad out of my back pocket. He was a real tool, filed a formal complaint with the store manager.

I picked up some of these lights at HD today. If your store is not out of stock, they should be on clearance. The price in your local store will vary
item #1000-017-144

This light runs on 3 x AA and has 33 LED’s in the worklight for 200 Lumen. Don’t be fooled, 200 lumen is enough for most purposes. There is also an 80 lumen flashlight that is just OK. There is a push button on-off for the flashlight and the worklight turns on when the popup head is pulled out. A steal at $2.53


The flashlight LED is badly off center on this one!


Some other stuff on clearance
a set of 2! digital wall timers, 1500W
item #1000-014-291

3 pair womens work gloves, I got a set for my wife and other sets for Christmas gifts
$2.52 for 3 pair is 84 cents a pair! These gloves are soft and fit tight, sort of like driving gloves. I have been using the mens sizes for a couple of years now and like them a lot.
item #1000-033-947

2.1A! USB wall charger and a 2.1A USB car charger. The package does not state it but they are Apple compatible and I now am able to charge my iPad in the car!

Awesome finds.  I'm hitting HD tomorrow for sure.  Thank you dchomak Smile

 

EDIT: I hit HD this morning.  Was able to find their last Defiant Work Light.  It was marked $9.30.  I took it to the register and asked them to check the price.  They said it's $9.30 and pointed to the sticker.  Remembering you talking about how the clearance prices are often not posted in a thread you posted (I checked your threads and couldn't find it to link here), I asked them to humor me and scan it.  It  rang up $2.53.  Sweet.  Thank you for helping us bargain-findingly challenged get a good deal dcho man. Smile

Oh, also got one of these for 1 cent.  It was in a clearance rack all by itself.  I would have cleaned them out if they had any more.

Dang DC!  Missed your post last night and I was at HD this morning (and walked right past the area where those lights and timers usually sit!  Ugh!

I was in another HD this morning and found 5 more of the work lights
In both stores they are NOT with the flashlights, they are in The electrical department.

IAM4, I am jealous over that Swiss Tech for 1 cent! Last week when I got the tool those were already sold out.

Garry, my store has several cases of the digital timers behind the display. These too are in electrical.

BTW, in the DST thread there is a link “inventory checker” to check local stores for availability of stock.

Good idea.  Added the inventory tracker link to the OP.  Here it is.

.Here is the HD Inventory Tracker Link.

At lunch I hit a different HD.  They had none of those lights, but they did have some of the glove sets for women and a different Swiss Tech Multitool.  It had the price of $9.06 marked on it, but rang up for a penny.  Again in a clearance rack.

This store had the digital timers in the tool isle.  The other HD had them in the lighting area.

EDIT: For some reason, the inventory tracker isn't working for me.

I think they take many clearance items off the website.

Yes they do, as a matter of fact when I use the Home Depot APP to scan for price, if it doesn’t scan that is a clue that it may be on clearance at a VERY low price. I then walk it up to a self checkout and do a “price check”

It’s not working for me either. That was a good tool. Maybe this is just temporary. I think I remember another checker that we came across, but it was not quite as good.

What was that second tool you got????
