Also here’s this weird machine thing at one Home Depot; it is often making a noise and it was doing it this time but when I was about to record a video, it stopped. So just a picture:

Here’s the cheapest I found on Ebay at $22 shipped… HD ftw for half-price. As far as “smart-phone” tech level goes, it’s practically a dinosaur, but a deal for somebody.

Any Android phone will work great without being hooked up to a carrier network. You can register and access the PlayStore and use all the features that don’t need a mobile network. Lots of Apps out there like FB Messenger and GoogleVoice that make “calling” easy over wifi for free. FWIW, Iphones are the same way… no network needed to just use it as a computer.

I visited one of the HDs in my area yesterday and came to the conclusion that the stores in the Cleveland area have their own pricing policy. The Defiant 3d like the one I purchased at the 04 price have joined the maglites in the flashlight racks at a .97 price. It seems that in my area items are returned to the shelves and tagged as ‘NEW’ and not reduced to x3 prices. Discounts are rare and I only saw a few .04 items. The only x3 prices I saw were sprinkler heads at $0.93. The 2x aaa mini maglites are still $14.99 and the 2x aa mini maglite pro are $24.98. They went from an 04 price back in march to full price in april.

Those 2 Maglites you mention were never on clearance.
The clearance was for a special combo that contained BOTH lights.
As it happens I Am in the Cleveland area right now. Just today I came across a store with about 20 of the Energizer flip work lights. The ones that were originally 32.97. They were tagged at $23.06 but rang up for $7.53. A friend with me bought 8

I’d swear I saw a comment here about the single lights at reduced prices too. Post deleted but I still say the stores in this area don’t follow the same pricing policy.

Banggood – recommended for buyers who don’t mind an endless wait and continuous excuses for not dealing with defective items.
Fasttech – recommended for buyers who like to wait long periods with ever changing arrival dates for items that were ‘in stock’ when ordered.

You are right for certain extent. I am still traveling but I have seen some strange “6” prices during this trip. Prices that don’t follow the rules.

Going to head out on lunch and try to grab 2 more of the Maglite combo packs for $6.33. If they are still there. I’ll look for the 2D LED Maglites as well, a penny would be a steal for sure! But I’d be happy with paying a few bucks per as well.

We’ll see what they have.

OK, thanks! Is it specifically and only the 2D mags that are on clearance? 160-some Lumen models?

The 2d led 168 lumen and 2d xenon are at penny. The armourmax 3D 590 lumen is at 7.53. There are a few energizer work lamp singles and combos anywhere from 4 to 7. You can scour previous posts for the exact models and pics.

No luck at the HD near work. The Maglite combo packs were all gone, none in stock, none in the entire geographical area according to their internal inventory checker.

I also found no 2D Maglites either.

Now I guess I just wait for the Leatherman Wingman to drop off of $20.06 down to a “3” price.. likely somewhere around $14.x3. I’d buy it at that price. That’s about half off original retail; would be better if it went to 75% off retail, that’ll be $7.50 (7.53?). I’d prefer another Sidekick, but the Wingman is close enough.

I’m kicking myself in the nuts for not picking up one of the Skeletool’s in February… I just didnt know about Home Depot clearance at that time. DANG IT!

Other, just tons of LED bulbs and door knobs on clearance. meh….

I built a Self-Shaming-Machine… I place one of my boots onto the apparatus and stand in the designated zone and hit the switch and let it kick my either in the arse or in the gonads… depending on how badly I screwed up. lol.

No really, I don’t do that.. although there may just be a market for that….

At this point, I’d almost suggest we get a thread going of all of these UBER deals that we all get, to buy/sell/trade with others who missed out or don’t have the special clearance deals near them.

I mean, what can some of us really do with 65 packages of 2D maglites! Don’t answer that, I already know the responses….lol

Exactly.. on a more serious note to that, some you’d keep for yourself, some you’d sell as-is, or mod and sell, some you’d gift away. But overall, I think if I had scored 2 or 3 or 4 dozen of anything on here, if anywhere, I’d try to sell them here to fellow BLF’ers first. Those 2D maglites being had for a penny, could you imagine if you sold an extra dozen for $10-15 each? Easy money.. and not necessarily totally selfish either.

If I get any deals like that, that’s what I am going to do.

Dchomak did just that with some Xenon Maglites recently. I think more of us should follow suit.

I’ve installed a couple of those coach lights or customers and I fully agree. They’re thin gauge and the thin brass plating will begin to show rust in just a few months. Good for a house your selling at this price, though the “03” price will be more toward what they’re actually worth.

Yes I am still traveling. I have lots of the the Xenon, 2D LED and Mag mini combos that I can make available at my cost.
I have seen many strange and wonderful things during my travels. When I get home I will post the pics. Until then, there’s this.

^ I’ve been waiting for months for that to happen! Do you know what day the price switched? I should check my local HD today! Glad I brought portable lunch to eat in the car…

I’ll buy both of the remaining two they had/have if they are still there and that price. Although I could see employees snatching them up at that price.
