I found a 3rd one, same way I found my first 2. Scanned the cutout UPC code, found that the price was $48.00 and then searched the store for one. This time the price tag was still at $123.00
BTW, this was the same store I mentioned earlier than scanned at $123.00. All it took was a couple of days and the price changed.

Again with the skills to find the deals… My local stores are picked clean long before they get that low.

HD has a so-called 3’ LED shop light for ~$15, (it’s only 33” long), i think dc mentioned them earlier, so i got one to test out—and it is a really bright stick of light.

It draws ~34W from the mains, puts out 3,000 lemons at 4000K with 80 CRI and comes with a 5’ power cord and two 9.5 inch chains for hanging. It does get really warm on the back side, almost too much to touch or hold. But it seems to be a good value with gobs of light for not too much $.

The sku is 1002-310-056, made in ver china for www.AcuityBrands.com.

I have been finding some Ryobi tools on sale lately.

About two weeks ago I got a Ryobi 18v leaf blower/trimmer combo pack with 2.6ah battery/charger for $60
I was actually looking for something like this so it was a win-win!

Yesterdays deal was the P551 miter saw for $25.03 (no battery included)

I thought that was a steal and told my friend, who then went to his HD to see what deals they had. He found the Ryobi 40v blower/12in trimmer combo pack with battery for $33! He snagged two of the kits to have an extra battery.

I was in a HD today and the tool guy was talking about that miter saw deal. Some guy had come in, knew where they were and the price and bought them all.
I would LOVE to find that 40V Ryobi combo set for $33!

Only 8, the fork lift guy wanted one! LOL

Actually, I called the guy that first found 1 of these a few days, ago and he told me to “buy them all, we’ll figure it out later”

I was lucky to find anything. My local HD is usually picked clean. I went again this week but there was nothing really. My dog got a nice walk out of it tho.

They did have a small glass bistro table for $12. But I have no use or place to store that. Plus I already have a nice table from Costco that was on clearance…

Nice find on those compressors. I would buy them all too. Lol

But i did find three $299.00 16” Ryobi 40V lawnmowers with the 4.0 Ahr packs listed in clearance for $149 with a date of 12/12/16. So i talked to the manager about when they might go down to the 75.03 price and that i would buy all of them if they did. He checked his phone and said not everything gets marked down that way, but he would let them go for $100 each. So i basically got 3 free lawnmowers and chargers with 4.0 Ahr packs, for the price of three 2.6 Ahr 40V packs.

I hadn’t thought to checkout the garden section in quite awhile.
Lately I have, and found this. 4 of the 40V Ryobi mowers out in Garden, no protection from rain.

I think I now know why I have been finding water damaged 40V batteries in the recycle bin.


Of the 4 mowers, 3 were 20 inch machines and were marked down 50% to $149
But there was a 16 inch machine that was 75% off, marked down to $49.

I found the battery and charger to that one in the grass catcher bag.

4Ah battery!
But I can see that it and the charger has gotten wet


So at the register I was sure to check everything out before I bought, and everything was good.
Happy with this one for sure Thumbs Up

I have been struggling to find anything lately. I have picked up a few small things here and there but nothing worth posting. Lightning cables went to a penny I grabbed 2 of them

I saw the Ryobi mowers but they are 149ish, i have a riding mower so I dont need one.

Id like to find a compressor, mine just seized up on me 2 days ago.. It was a Kobalt i got for free from the guy at the local transfer station. Someone dropped it off and said that it didnt work anymore, it was brand new but the digital screen display wouldnt light up. i fixed the loose wire in 2 minutes and had a new compressor for free..

but now its shit the bed…

ohh well.. keep the deals rolling!!

Dead how? lots of compressors need an occasional rebuild. The kits are usually pretty cheap if the motor runs. If it’s the motor it gets a little pricier. I have one I picked up for next to nothing at a garage sale ($20 for it along with a handful of DVDs and a hedge trimmer) it needed a capacitor ~$60 and few minutes of my time.

It started screeching really loud and then smelled like it was on fire. It’s a small one and it’s oil free which suck anyway. I’ve just never needed a large compressor. I will prob try to find a big used one and rebuild though. I do a lot of wood working and I’d like to be able to use an air sander

That sounds like it’s throwing a belt but most of the new oil free types don’t have a belt. Independent motors/compressors are pretty old school.

I got it working today. The cover was touching the belt pully. Nothing wrong with it, thankfully. Glad you posted about fixing it or I may not have ever bothered with it. Thank you sir!

DOH! Thought I finally found a penny deal at a Home Depot I don’t visit that often. Found this dated June 13, 2017 and ending in an “x3” price:

It’s a single T8 fluorescent light strip. Take it up to self checkout for a price check and to my dismay I see:

What gives? The checkout attendant came over to me and asked me if I needed help. I replied, “No, I’m just doing a price check. Thought I might have found my first penny deal, but nope.” She then gave me a look as if to acknowledge the secret system.

Garry,
You are right, I have been seeing some strange things too. Tons of items that should have gone to a penny but haven’t. Others that have not gone to the next discount price as expected etc.

Today I was in a store and it looks like the Christmas season stuff is just coming out. These displays were just starting to be put up, but I was able to notice some brand new lights. Prices had not yet been posted on some.


This flashlight is the size of a 2D cell light but runs on 6-AA’s
700 lumen, dual beam. The main LED looks like an XP-L and it is surrounded by a “halo” of some sort of COB.



There was also a 2-C sized light that runs on 4-AA’s and a n AA sized light that runs on 4-AA’s
???


I only saw a price on the smaller light, $12.97
All 3 lights are very attractive color wise. Silver, Black and Grey,
All 3 lights have the dual beam LED’s

Interesting the 4AAA light should fit a 26650. I like the 4AA one. Look a lot better than the latest round of cheap Defiant branded lights.

Thanks for the report.  Always good to see what is comming down the pike.  The Flood Beam diagram is a real understatement.  That COB surrounding the reflector should put out a mule like light pattern.

Speaking of strange pricing, here is one I never saw before.
These Ridgid wet tiles saw was originally $189.00.
I first took notice when they went to their first markdown, priced at $149.

I waited, and waited. After some months they went to $95.04.
The “4” price is always a good one because it is the first step in the serious markdowns, is about 25% off and will go to the “2” price which is about 75% off in about 4 weeks.

This happened about 2 months ago, and I bought 2. I know that the “4” price will go to the “2’ price in 4 weeks or less (28 days) and if I am diligent, and I find one at the “2” price within 30 days, I can ask Home Depot to refund the difference back to my credit card.
I anticipated the “2” price to be around $48.02 and if I can get refunded the difference I will get back about $100!
So I did what I often do, I printed out a UPC code and would scan it in Home Depot, checking for price. For the first 3 weeks there was no change, but coming close to the 28th day there was a price change.
But this time the stores around here didn’t go to the “2” price, they reset it to the “6” price. $94.06


That means they changed their mind, they were not willing to mark them down 75% and wanted to give the 25% off price 6 more weeks before they reduced it to the 75% off price of around $48.03.
It took me a few days to realize I had only 1 option. It was getting close to 30 days and I would forfeit my right to a refund of the difference, so I went up to the service desk and asked them to refund the difference in price to my card.
Now that difference was only 98 cents for each saw, $95.04 to $94.06, but it was lower and I was able to get a total refund and then a buy back.
When that is done, I get a new receipt and that 30 day countdown starts all over again starting at that date.
Just about 30 days later it all paid off. I found that the saw had finally gone to $48.03 and I did get the refund, about $100 Smile
Whew

Wow, where have you been? Haven’t crossed your path in some time.

Yeah I noticed after I took the pics that they promote 3 beam patterns with the 2 LED’s

And it’s always nice to know what will be on clearance in January and February LOL

It looks like they have finished setting up the gift idea displays.
Here are all the flashlight ones.
















And this year they even have the Atomic Beam Flashlight Party

At least the USA version uses real CREE eimitters.

Dcho, thanks for the pics. I’m drawn to a couple of those area lights, but strangely, they aren’t in stock anywhere near me at the moment.
