Ok so apparently that weird head is a "flush cap" so you can flush the system before installing nozzles so they dont get clogged. That's probably why it has that weird flapper thing; after it's done flushing, the flapper thing closes the hole so dirt doesnt get back into it.

I didn’t know how to reply to that either, if i had a youtube clip from the Simpsons that came to mind i would have posted it, unfortunately there are many grandpa simpson clips no one has seen fit to upload

I know. It seems like sheer madness on the surface. But, we just need think back to a darker time. Each one of us, everyone here, should realize that we too probably said similar statements when we were in the denial stage. Hang in there poiihy. We’re here to “help” you.

I went to 3 different WalMarts today looking for the multifunction jumper starter FlashPilot found in this thread
YMMV – Walmart has the Everstart Multi-Function Jump Starter & Battery Charger for $9. Regular price $39.84
Boy, was I out of my element in WalMart! Bottom line was I couldn’t find any. More than anything I was curious as to how it was built, and $9 is cheap.
Even though I didn’t find the one I was looking for, I saw this. A Stanley branded version of the Black & Decker battery booster that HD cleared out at $20.


Anyway, after the third WalMart, less than a mile away was a Home Depot. So I stopped in. Here is what I found,
5 more of the ArmourMax 3D’s This package contains 3 Alkaline D cells also. The sticker says $14.06, but they rang up for $7.83 Wink

Then there was this. A display with 20 of the Maglite Pro AA and AAA combos. I know the price says $19.06, but guess what? They rang up for $6.33.

Don’t give up on these items, they are still out there.

What kind of cells are in those string trimmer packs? I can’t use a trimmer, but cells may be a whole different story and worth the whole purchase price!

I was thinking of you when I saw this display of a blownup battery pack for the 56V EGO

So I grabbed one of the dual pack Maglite LED combos.. $6.33 at my local store (local to my workplace). My local-to-home store had none.. they usually have bumpkis for clearance if it’s not Jan-Feb. (They told me Feb is their best month for clearance).

I’m wondering if I should grab one or two more… I dont need them for myself.. but they may make great gifts! Or should I want one combo kit for myself? Not sure if they are anything special, or just good LED lights. I doubt they’ll last long enough to go to a penny though.

The one item I was watching (created and printed the barcode for) finally went to a penny.. but of course, a few days had gone by and it was pulled from stock. Bummer.

Heck yeah!

If you don’t, someone like me will come along and grab ‘em all.

272 Lumen mini is really nice. It is now my favorite light, THIS week. Smile

Good deal… I’ll swing out there tomorrow. They had a floor display with about 30 of them in the way way back of the store. Last time I was there I got a couple containers of the Tide laundry pods on clearance as well.. regularly $18, got the 96ct pack for $11 ish. Wife was super happy.

It is shocking the difference in clearance-able merchandise between two stores in adjacent towns.

I saw two boxes of those 19¢ sprinklers at another HD on the shelf but when I checked the price, they were full price. :/

Also see this sticker?

I found this sticker there but none of the product nearby.
This is for the 2 packs of Philips ‘Basic Bulb’s.
Originally they were $4.97.
Then I saw them for $3.
Now they are $2.50!!
So they are about half price from the original price.
$1.25 each!
Although I didn’t find the product there next to the sticker, maybe we can find them elsewhere, and if we do, they’d be $2.50!

Nice. I really like those bulbs. At one HD I go to, the bulbs in are in the back right corner where many of the bulbs and other lighting gizmos are.

So I was at a home depot that I haven’t been to recently. I saw the 2D Led maglites in clearance marked at 19.06. Now, having read all of dchomak’s postings, I knew these had come down to 7.53 a WHILE BACK! I had even found and bought a few at that price. So being curious, I took one of them for price check… and lo and behold —- .01!!! I got all 7 remaining for $0.08 including tax! My first penny deal, and what a deal! Thanks to dchomak and everybody else in this thread.

You may want to use cash from now on when you score a penny deal. It’s more anonymous.

From 2 days ago, these rang up for $6.33
One minute they were there and the next minute they were gone. Shocked

I have been watching these for some time now. Internet lights, they were $50 for the controller and 2 bulbs. There were problems with the software when they first came out and HD briefly reduced the price to 24.97. When I realized it was a software only problem, I got some and they work well. Software glitches have been solved. Now over the last few months HD has been reducing the price by $5 at a time until now they are back down to $25. I am hoping they will go lower….

Extra individual bulbs are also being reduced, to day I grabbed a B38 spotlight as it is now at the “3” price


I didn’t know HD sold smartphones, here is one for 13.03. Could be used as an internet device, has WiFI, bluetooth etc.

Another thing I will be watching is an Energizer 4 Bay NiMh charger with 2 AA cells. I forgot to get a picture. The cells are only 1500mAh, but right now it is on clearance with a “6” price of $6.06. The “3” could be $2.03. If it is……………

You got that straight

You can use cash at the self checkouts. I always use bills, even when buying 1 item at a penny. Others here will reach into their front pocket and pull out a penny
That takes nerve!

I’m curious, they won’t let you buy the 0.01 flashlights because of the quantity or the price? Would it be ok if you just bought 1 or 2?
