Thanks for all the input everyone. I went in to HD last night to pick up some Romex and while I was there, I politely asked the lady at the customer service desk if they would take a Harbor Freight coupon. She said they normally don’t, but called the manager, who, after a pause, said sure but wanted to make sure that I knew I was getting a better tool. So I raced back to the planers before they could change their minds and found it to be on sale for $360 (down from $400). So it ended up being $288 before tax. When I got home, I told my wife that I needed an alibi and a place to hide, because I felt like I had just robbed the place. Just goes to show that it can’t hurt to ask…
