Why didn’t I know this sooner? After posting about building my chicken coop this week – my friend Celia said, “Don’t forget to use the Harbor Freight 20% off coupon when you shop at Lowe’s!” What!? Say what?! I had no idea, did you!?
I know that Lowe’s and Home Depot take competitors coupons – but those are fairly rare and are usually no more than 10% off. But the 20% Harbor Freight coupons are in our Sunday inserts on a regular basis! In fact, you’ll find one in the Smart Source insert today.
I confirmed it and used a 20% off Harbor Freight coupon at my local store. I tried to use it on flowers, but they said it should be used on tools or another item that you’d find at Harbor Freight, which makes sense.
Read the fine print on the coupon – the same will apply at Lowe’s. The one I used says “Cannot be used with any other discount or coupon. Not valid on gift cards, Inside Track Club membership, extended service plans, Compressors, Generators, Tool Cabinets, Tool carts, Welders, Floor Jacks, Campbell Hausfelt products, open box items, Parking Lot Sale items, Day After Thanksgiving Sale items, Tent Sale items, 800 number orders or online orders. Limit one coupon per customer and one coupon per day.”
But it should work on the majority of products you’d buy at Lowe’s! If you aren’t sure, ask at customer service before you do your shopping!
You may also be able to use this at Home Depot. They also take competitor’s coupons. AND don’t forget, the Harbor Freight ad does have FREE coupon items pretty regularly. Like today there is a coupon for a FREE flashlight, regular $6.99, with any purchase! You could use this at Harbor Freight, probably not Lowe’s, but that’s a great deal.
I need to know if you have any other secrets like this up your sleeves? How do you save at Lowe’s and Home Depot?
And don’t forget, Amazon has some incredible prices on tools and hardware, too!
