Wow! The detours to the HD's made up for the gas you used. Laughing

Great stuff dchomak.  Your theories have been working down here in South Carolina.  Once in the while, I pick up something for a penny.  The only difference appears to be that items take much more time before they start the downward markdown spiral.  They also seem to be better about getting stuff off the shelves down here.

First thing I ran into was a display for the very same 12 outlet power strips as the last store. This time they were hanging in electrical and were priced at the scanned price of $15.06. The date on the tag was 12/09/14, just days away from another price reduction!, maybe. I would be coming back this way in a week, I made a mental note (more like a mental obsession) to stop by. That new price, when it comes will end with an “03”

Heads up. These dropped to $5.03 in my store. I bought the two they had left at that price as I figured they would be long gone before the price hit $0.01.

Don’t worry, I didn’t miss out. Later in that same post I mentioned I followed up and got them also for $5.03. Took all 7 that store had left SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Isn’t that a GREAT price for these? You’ve gotta be real happy with these. I am.

I missed the followup as I was reading your post on my phone as I was walking around the store.

And yes I’m ecstatic. I want to go hit up another location about 10 mins away and see if I can grab a couple more.

I hit two home depots today for things i needed on clearance, and tried to replicate your success, no dice at all, nothing in the home depot clearance or otherwise rang up below the price on the tags or shelves
If you ever come to Canada i would be curious if you can replicate your success.

Was at a different HD today looking for more of those power strips and I came across this buried on an end cap at the back of the store. It was $4.95 so I grabbed one.

What interested me was that it said this on the package…

Could it be? Lets find out…

Making Progress…

It looks like it’s the right size…

Success!

And to think it’s an LG 18650 for $4.95. But wait, it’s only 1300mAh. Probably going to leave this in the mister and use it this summer or give it away.

I never noticed those before. I would bet that should be a 20-25 dollar item. I’m guessing there were no other power strips? Did your store have them displayed at $5.03 or were they still displayed at a higher price?

I just noticed that in post #3 of this thread I had found the Ryobi Trimmer for the clearanced price of $58.06, ends with a “6”

Then in post #12, 10 days later, I bought another one at a further reduced reduced price of $38.03, ends with a “3”.

I wasn’t making that “6” and “3” connection back then.

I hit two other HD’s in the area but found no other power strips left. They were marked at $5.03 at the store I bought mine at.

I have my eye on a table lamp at my local HD that is priced at $49.06 but the last time I scanned it, it was at $13.03…

Also there are some USB power packs that look like they are due to go to a penny in a couple weeks.

Leatherman Sidekicks just went to $18 at Home Depot. You can order online or go to the store. I just picked up five in store, so this is confirmed.

Those LED mini work lights that I bought 6 days ago at $1.52 now ring up for a penny. Smile
All the stores I visited on my Trek had plenty, my hometown Depot only had 1. Sad

I went in to HD to pick up some Cree 60w bulbs as a gift for a friend who has a hodgepodge of CFLs that must start around 100 lumens before working their way up to 700 after a good 3 minutes.

They have the 60w 93 CRI bulbs on clearance for $7.50, more than 1/2 off.  Scanning the barcode or entering 1000022805 brings up a Kohler toilet tank, but they are these bulbs just not in the 6 pack - http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cree-TW-Series-60W-Equivalent-Soft-White-2700K-A19-Dimmable-LED-Light-Bulb-6-Pack-BA19-08027OMN-12DE26-1U100/204609903

I bought 6 of them but might go get the rest.  I personally haven't used these before, and they do consume a little more power, but 93 CRI is nice.

That is nice.
I just noticed the other day these lights in a corner of the store at $15.00, marked down from $15.97. $7.50 is a price worth considering though. I will definitely check my store out again.

When you see this kind of crazy stuff in the app it can mean that these could go for even less in the future, they are no longer in the system. Wink
Keep watching these in any store you’re in until they are gone.

I stopped in several HD’s
This one had the “screw in” LED light fixtures that I mentioned earlier at $19.96 reduced to $8.96! That’s as cheap as just the bulb. These have been reduced to 12.96 in Connecticut.

They really are a great idea. This “bulb-fixture” screws into a common porcelain fixture and ends up flush with the ceiling so it ends up looking like an installed light fixture. I bought 7. I had already bought 3 more in CT at 12.96 as I thought THAT was a good deal. Now I can return those 3 and get my $39 back. Smile




Done!

Here is what is inside

But the real deal at this store was this

Notice the price, $75.06. Now this is not Connecticut or New York or PA or Ohio, all states that I have scored penny deals before. This is a new State, Massachusetts. The date on the box is 06/02/14, and the price ends with a “6”. Prior to this I had seen this Little Dog Remote Trainer marked at $25.03 so I was certain this would ring up at a penny. This store in MA has price checkers throughout the store, really makes it easy to check prices. This price check station was right next to the display I found this at.

But there is going to be a problem with this. It has an anti-theft device strapped to it, so how do I deal with this?
1. I could just pass over it and not bother.
2. I could go up to the self help checkout girl and tell her I plan to buy this and would you FIRST remove the anti-theft device?
3. Or do the smart thing, FIRST go through the self checkout, buy and PAY for it, then before leaving the store ask the self checkout girl to remove it.

So that’s what I did.

The checkout girl (woman) looked at my receipt and said it was wrong, so she scanned it again. Then she looked up the SKU and got some crazy item as cone described above. Then she said that HD does NOT sell stuff for a penny. I pointed to my receipt and told her yes they do, there’s the proof. Then she called over the head cashier. She told me the same things, to which I countered with rational answers. Then she said, oh I know why this was on clearance, someone brought it back and it is broken. I was ready for that one! I told her, maybe so, but I know HD has a liberal return policy and if it is you can be sure I will return it and get my money back. Then I got a little more firm and told her that this item in MINE, I paid for it and I have the receipt, would you just remove the anti-theft device so I can leave.
At that point she called the manager on her phone, explained the whole situation again to him and I heard her repeat $10. At that point I said NO, let me talk to him. She gave me the phone and I told the manager that it was MINE, I paid for it and have the receipt, what do you plan on doing, TAKE it from me? To that he said OK. I gave the phone back to the head cashier and she spoke to him for a very short time and hung up. I parted on friendly terms, but the original self checkout girl was not at all happy with me.

I returned 3 of the screw in light fixtures today at my local HD as I had bought some yesterday in MA for $4 less each, saving $12 on the 3. The money didn’t stay in my pocket long though as I came across this.

This is one of the Black Friday deals and was $29.98. Later on they were reduced to $23.00.
If your HD still has one, you can now get it for $15.04

BTW, yesterday I found many more penny deals on that I will post later.

Damn, I picked that up for $23.  Pretty sure they are all gone at my store now.

Also, I bought more of the 93 CRI Cree bulbs to bring the total to 9, thinking that was the last of them.  Went back and there were two more boxes on the shelf (6 each), and saw two more above in storage.  Here's hoping that they don't get sold and the price drops even more.

Oh, I almost forgot . . . I did notice 3D Maglite LED's going for $18 on clearance.  These were up near the registers at my store.  And I also noticed that my store moved it's clearance section (probably a tactic).

dchomak, you're a machine.  I hit a HD, but was not able to score any of those.  All the Ryobi grinders were full price.  I don't know if any were that specific model though.  I did get a couple night lights for a penny each.

So what all did you score for a penny?

Would you please post a pic of that nightlight? Was it the one that turns on when it “hears” a smoke detector going off? All the HD’s around here had them on clearance for $2.03 but they either sold through at that price or I missed out.

It was only on that specific “BF” grinder. All their other grinders, even another 6” grinder are at full price. The BF grinder does not have a work light.
This store has 8 of these in stock at $15.04, so they are still out there at some stores.

Yes it was that light.  The moved them to a clearance bin at the store I was at.  Supposed to brighten when alarm goes off.  Don't have time to take a pic right now.  Will try to tonight.

This is not part of my big score on Sunday when I went thru Massachusetts to visit my brother, I will post those later.
I found this deal a couple of days ago using information that I had remembered from the start of this thread by ImA4wheelr.
In June of this year Lowes changed lines on clamps, vises etc and cleared out all of their Bessey line. To replace them, they brought in the Irwin line. A lot of those deals are posted in the Lowes Deal Alert Thread
At the same time, Home Depot cleared out their Irwin line and brought in Bessey. Some of us were able to benefit from the clearance carnage at BOTH stores! Smile
Knowing this, whenever I see an Irwin product in Home Depot, I know that it still shouldn’t be there and could ring up for a penny.
The other day I found this item on a clearance shelf at HD, here is a pic of that same item in Lowes for they now carry Irwin.

But HD no longer does! So I grabbed it and……………
a penny.

I didn’t realize how useful this tap holder is until later. How many times in tapping a hole or chasing some threads has one had to “cheat” and to get extra torque have connected and adjustable wrench to the tap in order to turn it? Not only does this tap holder have that removable bar, but it is made to take a 3/8” ratchet. NICE.

There is little or no chance anyone else can find this deal, I am only pointing this out because there is more than 1 way to find these penny deals, this time with knowing when remnants of a previously carried line is found.

^ Great advice and find.

Up above you asked me to take a photo of the nightlight I got for penny.  I apologize for not taking one last night.  I can tell you that it isn't this one which is still full price.  It looks pretty much the same though.
