I’ve heard tales that HF has a 20% off on one item coupon out there. I’ve never seen one myself, but I googled it and found one online I can print out.

Is that a no no? Will they take it or scold me for how I got the coupon?

You’re good to go Russell. I use the printed coupon from online all the time. Some stores are strange about the coupon though. The store near me wont let me use it for items already on sale. You’ll see posts here from some folks who are able to use the coupon at Lowes. The Lowes employees in the store near me always give me that “dont even think about it” look.

That’s the one. I sure wish I had done this when I got my BS.

Many wood working magazines, i.e. Popular Woodworking & Wood, and other magazines like DIY and Popular Mechanics have Harbor Freight ads that always have a 20% off coupon; along with very good sales prices on selected items. I use these all the time and these are the ones I have been able to combine with other sales. I have a couple of HF stores within a one hour drive and have been able to combine coupon and sales price at both.

Never been able to use a HF coupon at HD or Lowes though.

Sign up for HF email notices and you will get all kinds of special offers, including 20% and even 25% off coupons in your email.`

Lately “my ” store has been refusing printed coupons, they accept only the original, this is something new.

Be sure to check the expiration date on the coupon. They won’t accept the expired ones.

I used the 20 off from Wood Magazine today to purchase the mobile base for my band saw.

We regularly get them in an insert with our other coupons, not sure if they are from the mail or newspaper I just know once every few weeks my wife leaves a printout of coupons for me.

I printed mine from online and they let me use it on the total purchase. Guess it just depends on the store.

I have good luck getting my local HD to honor the coupon. I got my R4511 fro $239, and some other various tools for 20% off.

I forgot to get some casters and some push boards. I wonder if they’ll take a second 20% off coupon?

I think they have a 1 coupon per visit rule so you should be good.
