^ Everything on the front cover looks the same in every detail.  My discount tag is $23.06 with date of 4/15/14.. 

 

Bar code on the bottom of the package.  Text above it is:

3241 642 18371

PROOF OF PURCHASE

BC17A21/AMB/2700 DIM 120V

 

Number below bar code is:

0 4667 42222 6

 

This happens sometimes.  Many of the penny and great deals posted here are still full price items when I get to one of my local stores.  Usually, the items are just not there to be found.

EDIT: Fixed typo (bolded).

Update to my last post. I hit two other HD’s today within 10 miles of where I got the light fixture. The exact same fixture is sitting on the shelf at @ $29!

So at both stores I went up to see if perhaps I’d struck gold and the fixture rang up at $29.

Just goes to show how individual some of these deals are to certain stores and how general others are across stores.

Are you sure it was the same EXACT light? Sometimes there are slight variations to color or finish of an item and one will be cleared out, the other not.
I did have that same experience with that parchment globe awhile back though.

I’m 90% sure. I will be back over that way sometime this week. I’ll compare the SKU’s this time.

For some reason these 106 quart storage containers ring up at 2 different prices. Although they are identical in every way except for the lid color, the blue runs ring up for $4.54 while the white ones are $15.47. It’s not the lid that goes with the container that sets the price, it’s the sticker on the side of the container.





After searching the stock in 2 local stores I was able to find 7 of the “Blue Tops”
There were only 5 blue lids, but that’s OK, I just grabbed 2 of the whites. Remember it’s the sticker on the container that sets the price.

And why would I NEED 7 106 quart storage containers, other than to store all the other crap I get from HD?

For a reconfigurable, 3D kitty maze! Smile Smile Smile

Yep, you figured it out.
I just hope someone else hasn’t already picked through them.

Almost any other brand of 18V drill pack battery costs a least $100 for a single pack. An 18V pack uses 5 18650’s to reach 18V (21V). A double pack uses 10 cells in a 5S2P configuration. At the start of the Black Friday sales, Ryobi came out with a 4Ah pack and the deal was buy one for $99 and get a second pack for free. That was quite a deal at the time. I bought one of those then and sold off 1 of the 2 packs to a friend and gave the second one to a neighbor friend who looks after our house when we are away.
Since that time I have watched that deal go from $99 to $89 to $84 and now to $75! The HD’s I have been in still have cases of these batteries. 2 packs of 10 cells each is 20 cells and at just $75 that works out to only $3.75 a cell if one were to harvest them. All other Ryobi packs that I have taken apart recently have Samsung cells, I am thinking these probably have the 20R’s in them.


As of 01/09/2015 these batteries on the clearance spiral. Next price reduction will end with a “6”. When that will be I can’t guess. They probably won’t last that long, this is a hot price as is.

I was in HD this morning and ran into the guy that changes the prices. He saw my cart full of Christmas tree stands that I had picked up at the front entrance at $1 each and asked if I had seen Gerber Tool. I had, they were marked down from $20 to $5. He told me that he had one and the manager of the store bought one also at that price. Since I know nothing of knives I had passed, but based on what he said and the fact that the manager bought one I picked one up.

Here are the Christmas tree stands, I will try using them for patio umbrella stands next spring. Not quite what they are intended for, but those patio umbrella stands are usually $30! For $1 what have I got to loose, besides the 5 eye hooks that come with it worth several dollars by themselves

Air tool connectors, and gauge and parts, heck the plastic case alone is worth $2.

Also 3- 50’ air hose for $5
That is 3 separate 50’ air hoses for $5!

Once again, to be clear, this is a pack of 3, 50’ air hoses for $5.

dchomak, I’ve gotta start shopping at your store. I was tempted by the hoses at $20. $5 is ridiculous. And the air accessory kit for nearly nothing is sweet too.

Man, those are some good deals.  All of the items in your last 2 posts are still full price at my HD's.  I'll be keeping an eye out though.  Thanks for the alerts.

Did you check today? I was there when they were being changed! Be patient, “these deals will soon be at a store near you”

BTW, I had a long talk with the price changing guy. He’s the same guy that grabbed the rest of the VGA to HDMI adapters when I jammed the self checkout scanner. I first spoke to him that day, just after he took the other 4 down. It seems that he was NOT instructed to take them down just after I went thru the checkout, he was already enroute as part of his daily tasks. I was just lucky to get the 1 that I did at that store.
We also talked about the deals and he says that those Ryobi 4AH drill packs will go to $50.06 in a few weeks! He told me that the “6” price is usually 50% of the original price and the “3” price is half of that or 75% off. He confirmed that after that, they go to a penny and are pulled.
I also asked him about items going on clearance, getting cleared out and then coming back at full price. He told me that sometimes when they are cleared out, they go to the manufacturer, are repackaged and then sent back. Sometimes they go to other stores, that could explain why bulbs that I have seen cleared out in CT are still full price in MA. Also it could explain why that bulb you bought for a penny in SC is $28 here. The BEST news is that he and I are now friends. He told me to just come up to him and ask him what’s a good deal. Of course, penny deals are not to be a topic. Those I will have to continue to ferret out for myself. Wink

HomeDepot in Canada just dropped the Defiant 150 Lumen 2-pack LED headlights from $19.99 down to $3.66 today.

- i grabbed the last two i seen form one store for that price.

These have 1-mode, use three AAA cells, electronic switch, and use the tiny CREE XB-D emitter in typical cool white. a plastic body and aluminum bezel, top switch, and adjustable head strap.

The plastic reflector is quite throwy with the stock XB-D, and the Amp draw on the cells is 0.65 amps. ( the package claimed 10 hours run time, but at that draw the AAA Defiant cells it came with will give a maximum of 1 – 1.5 hours average.

I quickly modded one of them with a re-flowed Nichia 119 emitter on the XB-D star, ( after modifying the star to accommodate the center padless 119)
i also resistored the driver back with a 7.5 ohm 1/2 watt to increase run time. Now its a much better tint with the 119, and runs for 4 – 5 hours on basic alkaline cells.

I just checked the pictures of the BF deals in post 128 and 136 but this combo pack is not there. I’ll check my store later today. Maybe it’s just a Canada thing?
No, can’t think like that! I must enter the store with positive energy.

The is, and when I use it to scan that bar code it comes back with “Oooops”
That means it doesn’t know what it is.
Right now I am in a coffee shop and when I use it to scan a retail box of coffee, it returns that same “Oooops”

It seems to work different then what we have, but that could be helpful if 1 cent items are removed from their database but are still in the store, but you will have to test that.
For some reason some products don’t appear on the canadian website but do show up in the app, the annoying part is i can’t see stock levels in neighboring stores on the web site, i can check the 64 nearest stores in under a minute with a few mouse clicks but it would take hundreds of presses and probably half an hour to do each one manually on the app.

We have a major storm on it’s way.
I was just in HD and EVERY flashlight in the store is up front being sold. They are already out of batteries. People are even buying the headlamps to be used as a flashlight.
What this means is that the BF and Christmas flashlights will not be around long enough to go on blow out prices Sad The guy in front of me at the checkout was buying a Ryobi 18v drill because he was also buying the 18v lantern light that will run on the Li-ion pack.
Oh well, maybe next year.

Sorry to hear that.  They tend to sell out down here even without storms.  Please take care riding out this storm.   Sounds like it's going to be a big one.

Cheer up, maybe they will come out with another super thrower this year in a D cell. You never know, but sometimes dreams come true. Smile

Yeah, it’s supposed to really be something.
I was in a diner this morning, one that I do not frequent, and we all were talking about the coming storm. Suddenly the waitress exclaimed “well I’m all set, got an awesome flashlight off Amazon” Of course I perked right up and asked what kind. She said it’s got everything, it’s solar powered, has a hand crank, radio and can even charge up a cell phone.
Yep, she’s all set.
I showed everyone my edc, a’68. They were all amazed, no one ever saw a zoomie before Big Smile

Yeah, you’re right.

Besides, today I got another penny deal Smile
