Bc412 I saw this and stopped by my local HD, they had none in stock, none available online and if they were they were available it was still $59.99. You got lucky.

What’s lucky is I grabbed one this morning and went back after work for another and they just put the staplers out. The overhead bin has like 10 more… I may get some penny deals

I walk around in HD every time I’m there looking for some of these deals. Mine always has some kind of sale but never the good deals some of you are finding. I wonder if these deals are manager specific deals. Some want to get rid of the stuff and others just want to send the items back.

Must of been a local deal even if they would’ve had one it showed it was the regular price at my HD, when I asked if they had a clearance rack was told no any sale item are on the end of all the isle.

Do not want to damper thread. BUT, issues need to be addressed with Home Depot with so called “ deals “

I saw entire case of Milwaukee 100 lumen penlights tagged $9.99. The store manager REFUSED to sell them to me. He blamed mistake on other people. Rather than address issue and fix it. The correct step should have been selling items to me. Then removing sign completely for $9.99. Calling associate meeting to make sure proper protocol for correct pricing is rolled out to entire staff.

Making customer happy and satisfied keeps them coming back. Not here. I will be shopping elsewhere for sure.

I was retail manager for 15 years. Ironically at home improvement stores. Anyone remember Builder’s Square, Builder’s Emporium, Home Base?

^Speaking of that,
Today I was in a HD and came across this display of LED lights.
These are newer “high end” CREE’s that have high CRI. They sell at a premium relative to today’s prices and were about $20 each.
You can recognize them by the rainbow of colors on the package.

On clearance and marked down 75% to the “2” price of $5.02. Next step is to pull them and send them out to the dumpster.
Or so they say Wink
What I really think is that they are going back to CREE and CREE is unloading them into the “odd lot” market.
A couple of days earler, I was in an Ocean State Job Lot and came across these.

Same high CRI bulb for only 99 cents, AND if you buy 12 you get a $12 gift card to the store at the register!
Net price of zero.

OSJL has been off loading CREE and other manufacturers bulbs now for over a year. Same deal on all, 99 cents per bulb with a full refund at the register in the form of a CRAZY DEAL gift card.
How can resist not buying all I can?

That does make a lot of sense, i somewhat recently found out HD in Canada (at least in my province) often sends clearance stuff to the Restore, the second hand charity shop for Habitat for Humanity

Well I was in the same Home Depot this morning. There were about 50 MET people crawling all over the store, scanning, organizing etc. I went over to the clearance shelves in the back of the store and all these LED’s lights scanned at a penny!
I was overwhelmed! What to do? So many!

So I did nothing, I walked out of the store disgusted Sick

Well I wasn’t quite right. Not ALL items were a penny, just 3/4’s of them!
Yesterday morning compared to this morning, after the MET team (locusts) descended onto the display. Shocked

That may be true, I don’t know. But last year as we traveled through NJ my wife allowed me to stop along the way in a few stores. Found penny stuff in all of them.

Here is a receipt with the store address not blocked out on a couple of Bosch “Laser Measurers” In the post above I had ghosted out the store address.
Found a bunch of stuff in the Worlds largest HD in Union, NJ too

Yeah just gotta be in the right location, Neptune and Union are about 1 hour each way from where I am so it’s tough to rationalize the drive not knowing if you will find something or come up empty.

I visited the HD in Chesterfield, MO, this morning and saw a cart full of various 1-cent LED bulbs, but I learned they were not for sale and were to be donated, probably to Habitat for Humanity.

I just came from my local Home Depot and saw these. 1/2 inch impact driver, battery and charger for $50!

There were 9 and as I was looking at them another guy walked up from the other side of the table.
Then I noticed that it included a 4Ah battery! When I told him that and showed him that the battery goes for $79 by inself, he grabbed 2.

So not to be out done, I grabbed 3 LOL
After off loading into my car I went back in. When I saw that the tool only package goes for $119.00, I bought 2 more. Cool

Then I went back in again, this all took about 10 minutes, and the last two were still there.
So I said what the heck, I’ll grab those too. Facepalm

I have a lot of the old NiCd Ryobi tools and they really perform well using the compatible Li-Ion bats

yeah another wasted trip for me, they had a kit like that but with 2 batteries for $100, seems like they ship all the good stuff to Connecticut.

I just got back from traveling, here are some good deals I found.



This combination pack of square and level rang up for $2.53

Here is a 5 piece plier set I missed!

These Wiss duckbill cutters rang up for $3.53. You may still find them mixed in with a similar looking straight cutter.


And Ryobi now has a 6Ah battery!

But if you think that is something, Milwaukee now has a 12Ah battery pack, although I have yet to see one for sale.

Jeez dchomak,

I like to just get one of those in my garage… deals like that at the home depots near me are unicorns…

You must make a good living just selling home depot clearance stuff…

I’ve got a thrower, a flooder, and an EDC too. Still looking for a bigger thrower, flooder, and a new EDC, give or take a few. I’m a flashaholic.

Been going a long time without posting up HD deals! Just not much out there nowadays, or too busy to post up? (Question directed to all, but dchomak first and foremost.)
