I’d kill to get the HD’s here to have this stuff as regularly as these guys find it. I just wasted 1 1/4 hours going across town to look at yet another HD, and once again not one single item shown here at any of them. Occasionally the odd item will turn up for me 1-2 weeks after it shows up here but that don’t happen often.

Good for those who can get the deals Big Smile

I agree, things just don’t work like this in Canada, though thats probably a good thing, nothing gets to the dumpster, they drop the price and it gets bought, usually 20-40%, on a rare occasion sometimes by 80-90% and it definitely gets bought.

When ImA4Wheelr started this Home Depot thread there was an inventory checker that made life easy. It is no longer available, I just found these 2 links, maybe they will be able to help us out.

Is there a comprehensive guide on how to read these prices and how much they will ring out to at the check out? I’ve read a few things online, but nothing is super clear as to how to tell. I went to my local HD today and took these pictures: http://imgur.com/a/Ac9nS many of them are marked in 2015. How does one know if they will ring up even lower than the marked price? Thanks!

Those Malibu items that have prices that end with a “3” will probably ring up at the self checkout for a penny.
I am posting your pic here for you


Malibu went bankrupt and all their stock has been on clearance. Just recently all Malibu stock has been taken off the shelves in the stores I have been to. Just yesterday I was able to find 1 Malibu item and it did ring up for a penny.
The other items that you presented that have prices that do not end in “3” are probably going to ring up for the sticker price.
You should go back and try. Be discrete.
This is the only Malibu product I could find, and it rang up a penny.

Some times HD makes it too easy. I found these 2 items marked as they are on a clearance shelf.

Nice follow up there for deathless. At my HD’s, 12/7/15 is still too recent to go to a penny. At least early last week it was. Best wishes deathless. Please report back if you try to buy the items. I think the reason you cann’t find a clear guidance is that there is no definitive rules that work for all stores and situations.

dchomak,

Thanks for that inventory links. Added a reference to them in the OP.

Thx tooreal. ! Great info !! Can you exchange at Home Depot. ??

Tarver,

No you have to go to a Factory Authorised Service Center, it’s usually a service center for other Tools like So many out there. It’s no big deal at all really, but if you take in your Batteries and a Charger and they exchange them for New one’s, You Must go online to your Ridgid account (or Call) and give them the Model and Serial Number on each New Piece you were given as a replacement for the Old Part that you turned in! Your online Tool profile Must have the Old Model and Serial Numbers replaced with the Numbers on the New Parts you were given in order for the Lifetime Warranty to cover the New Tools that you Now have… If you don’t go online and remove the old items that you turned in for New item’s, you will have trouble when you try to trade them in for the Lifetime Warranty the. Next Time you want to turn them in for a replacement.

If there is Not an Authorized Service Center in your City, I would Hope that Home Depot would set up a service center for the tools inside their store? If they didn’t why would anyone buy one of their Tools?

I have to go online NoW and change 2 Batteries and a Charger that I exchanged..

It does take soMe work keeping them up too Date, when you exchange them. But it’s worth it to me..

Hey deathless you found some of the discounted fluorescent fixtures I found!
If anyone else reading this needs some really cheap fluorescent fixtures, Home Depot is discounting most or all fluorescent fixtures! (hehe fluorescent is already obsolete Silly )

I emailed Ridgid : reply from Tom C
Tom.Clinkscales@ttigroupna.com

To obtain warranty coverage/service or repairs if you are located within the Continental U.S., you may return the product to The Home Depot store nearest you. Their Special Services Desk Representative can help you with repair process and procedures for your product. You also have the option of taking your product to your nearest Authorized RIDGID Service Center for service or repair. If you are located outside the Continental U.S., you will need to take or send your product in to your nearest Authorized RIDGID Service Center for repair.

If you have the original Lifetime warranty, you will need to provide your receipt when seeking coverage. For the newer Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA) coverage, you will need to provide your LSA verification/customer ID number when seeking coverage. For customers that have not obtained the LSA coverage for their tool, the purchase receipt or the tools serial number can be used by a RIDGID authorized service center to provide warranty coverage under the standard 3-year warranty that all new RIDGID power tool purchases carry.

To locate the authorized RIDGID service center that would be closest to you, please copy and paste the link below into your browsers URL line, or you can go to the RIDGID web site at www.ridgid.com and click the Support link and follow the steps to determine your local RIDGID service centers. Please contact your nearest authorized RIDGID warranty service center prior to going there, to insure that you supply all of the needed items to complete the warranty repairs.

And that is very good because fluorescents are still good because they are almost as efficient as LED lighting. So if you need lots of lumens without lots of heat and negative dollars, fluorescents are a good choice!

Speaking of Florescent lights, check out this price! BTW, this is NOT Home Depot.
The light fixture, takes 2 – 36” florescent bulbs.

The price: $6 per carton of 4! ($1.50 per light fixture) Sold only in cases of 4

Stock on the floor, there are more available.

The light fixture I DID buy at Home Depot 13 years ago. Cost me $100 Sick

Yep, florescents are on the way out.

Unbelievable!!
But true
Like, 15 years ago a Powerbook was one or two thousand dollars… now they’re worthless and you can get them almost for free.
Which is good. Big Smile

Yesterday I had to go out and do a return at Costco so I went to a different one just because there would be a different Home Depot right next to it. I found another Leatherman Skeletool on the clearance rack (middle of pic on right side of rack)

The package had been resealed and had a sticker for the original store price of 29.88. It scanned for $7.52

I also found another of the 40 piece Dewalt bits and drills buried in a stack of other Dewalt bits. Scanned for 3.82.

I went to the service desk to see which stores had the Skeletools. They looked it up and said none in the immediate area but they are available online.

It seems that the in store price of $29.88 was cheaper than the online price of $41.03
Then I came across this table up front. On the left is a couple of the Maglite Pro sets that I have been watching since Christmas. The sign says 50% off the clearance price which was $20

The original price for the 2 was $24.98. That was a good deal as is because elsewhere in the store just the AA version light is $26.00

But the AA version and the AAA version for $10 is fantastic. There were only 2 and i grabbed them both.
(other stores still have the pair for $20, i already checked) Something to keep an eye out for.

I also saw poiiy’s mouse traps for 52 cents Sick

This is a tire gauge that I actually had already bought at $2.53 at another store. When I got it home I found out that it includes a flashlight and a light up front to help finding the valve stem in the dark. This store didn’t have them at the clearance price of 2.53 but rather 50% off $5.88. Close enough, so I bought another.

One last deal, this set of 4 pliers. It was the last one and had I been 5 minutes later there may have been none.
8” tools, the adjustable wrench opens to 1 1/2 inches.

All of that was yesterday, today I was at my local store and as I walked by the flashlight section I overheard a guy asking about a particular light. He wasn’t able to describe to the HD employee what he was looking for, but I knew. He was looking for the Defiant Armour Max 3D. My store had 2 but they were gone. I showed the guy the picture I had on my phone and he concurred, that is the ONE he is looking for. By now the employee was involved and I’m sure he was surprised at the zeal of the customer and myself over flashlights Wink
Anyway, the customer asked me how far it “threw” and I said I don’t know but I can zoom in on the pic and see. The HD employee asked if I could zoom in on the SKU # and he would check for stock. I humored him as I KNEW the 2 on display were already gone. I gave him #852-955. He looked up and said “We have lots of those, they’re in the overhead” Next thing I know he is getting the rolling ladder and climbing up above. He found 3 full cases of them! The customer was ecstatic that he found what he came in for. I was ecstatic to know that this store had 3 full cases of a light that will likely see further price decreases. Unless they are brought down onto the floor* they will not sell.* Yummy.
Original price was $29.95 and the current clearance price is $15.00.
I shall be watching and waiting Big Smile

Home Depot water bags now 1¢!!!

Today we went to Home Depot and got more of the cups, and while I was there I saw the water bags that i was interested in, in the bottom. They were previously discounted to $2. I got one to check the price, and it appeared as a penny!! Big Smile

I found a lot of the 3D Armor Max (both old & new packaging) and the Energizer lights, but not much else. Well I did get some Husky 15’ long 16/3 extension cords for $3.33ea and an AC USB charger plug rated 2.1A for $3.98.

I’m surprised for two reasons, i had some of those cheese pedal traps and they were useless (different brand), and your mouse does not appear to be restrained at all, how is it held?

It seems the trap flipped over and we’re looking at the bottom. The mouse is pinched by the corner of the trap.

laying a corner of a mouse trap on a mouse in the displayed fashion would not hurt it.

Mine were so stiff i had to push on the trigger with a broom handle with enough force to lift a small cat to set it off. But again different brand. I ended up getting a $5 trap, worked great, mice are gone.

It’s not just laying on it, the trap has sprung and is pinching the abdomen. Perhaps this image will help.

It is in the sprung position, even though the trigger bar appears set. You can see the trigger bar on the left side of the image in question, thus the mouse is pinched between the snap bar and base, but it’s upside down so you can’t see it.

Haha I never thought the mouse catch would bring so much discussion
Nevermind when I said they work… They actually don’t work very well.

Later the same night the trap caught another mouse… or not… It was gone before I got to the trap.
Instead I found the mouse (i think it was the same one) trying to get an avocado seed through a small gap, repeatedly trying to pull it in, making noise. So I rolled the seed away and put a trap in front of the hole, and a few minutes later the trap snapped… when I came to get it, i found the mouse had escaped into its hole.

So the second time, the mouse escaped twice!
And the first time the mouse did not seem very well held down and I was worried it might escape. The first mouse (in the picture) was held on the center by a corner of the killbar.

These mouse traps are too weak!

Heads up, my local Home Depot has the learherman Wingman on clearance for $22. Not a bad price but I’m sure it’ll drop. I went in looking for some of the skeletools (ok, I’d have killed a small mammal just to find ONE) but this is all I could find that was worth looking at.

The metal and wood ones work better. If they tend to escape, take the serrated edge from an empty box of tinfoil and use small brads to attach that to the end of the trap. Not sharp enough to stop the mouse from going in but it helps to hold them from slipping out. Also put the traps where the sides are closed in so the mouse has to center itself in the trap to get to the bait. They make some really big traps for rats which can break a human finger when sprung so upsize if your quarry keeps escaping. Sometimes you have to wire or fasten the trap in place or they will run away with the trap on them. Just make doubly sure your pets can’t possibly get to those big traps Shocked
