Hey, if they don’t do the penny thing up there, not your fault right?

FlashPilot had me in WalMart looking for bargains a couple of weeks ago
Boy, that place is strrrrraaange! Big Smile

oh yeah, one more.

date on clearance tag of 02/24/16
I never noticed any Wiss products on clearance until now


No worries Thumbs Up
Is it wrong to wish they crushed things here so i could buy for a penny?

oh master dchomak – how did you suspect that wiss tool would have penny’d out? it is a 0 price that does not seem to have a wind down schedule, and the date is fairly recent.

I scored a couple of penny deals this weekend. It was on two originally $46 under-cabinet LED task lights. I’ll try to post a pic later. The interesting thing was when I did the price check and then pushed the screen button to convert it to a check out the screen went to “Call Associate” or something to that effect, which we know could be trouble because the associate may confiscate the item. So I cancelled out fast and left the register quickly. But I went back shortly and just did a regular check out and the penny items went through normally without a hitch. So, bottom line, when the price check reveals a penny deal just cancel it out and return and treat it as a regular purchase. Keep the price check and the purchase as separate activities.

I’ve been to all but one HD in my city searching amongst the Leathermans for an overlooked Wingman but have found none. I’m going to have to go to the last one and check it now that dchomak has located some.

An associate told me the “Call Associate” happens when the discount sticker is scanned instead of the black bar code that is part of the product packaging. Ever since I started scanning the product bar code, I haven’t had that happen.

Congrats on the scores.

Good for you!

I should tell you that it is much more efficient to go into a store with the idea of looking for a large number of possible penny deals. The ability to do that will come with time as you notice what has been on clearance for the past few months. If you commit, your brain will literally be loaded with lots of possibly useless information……..BUT, once in awhile it will pay off. Wink

Actually the “00” price is the very first stage of a wind down schedule, IF there is a date on the yellow clearance tag. This tool probably had a 6 price and a 3 price too. It’s just that this one tool never had the tag price updated.
The first clue to me was that it was laying horizontally across a couple of the peg board hooks in the tool section. When I saw the “00” and the date I figured it was old enough.
And it was.
Right now, dates toward the end of February are turning to a penny. Keep an eye on that 100W car inverter, it is just about old enough (03/01/16)
See, an example of maybe useless information swimming around in my head that I spoke about in my previous post

If you are in a Home Depot and use the Home Depot app on your phone to check a price will it show if it rings up a penny?

No – only the in store self checkout price check will.

Thanks for the info. That is what happened. I checked some prices today on some LED bulbs and the first time I check on one bulb I did scan the orange code and got the “Call Associate” but I did it again on a different copy of the same item w/o the clearance sticker and got the price w/o the warning.

Yes, that’s the one. Since it wasn’t an item I was in need of or could immediately use, I preferred to wait for the penny price, also.

I noticed that faucets don’t follow the regular clearance spiral thing; they always end in .00, except once I saw a faucet ending in .07.

I’m having trouble getting imgur to load my picture, some problem with Flash or something. I’ll try again later or look for another method.

At my local Home Depot, this is a special promotion by SDG&E (San Diego Gas & Electric). Last month the 60W equivalent HCRI bulbs were on the same $0.97 promotion.

I would have bought the maximum of the 60W the store would let me (or 50, whichever came first)
