This topic is for collecting a lot of their general sales and coupons so that you can make your own hot deal. A lot of their stuff is good enough for a homeowner (Tips are in post 3 below).

Please place any really hot individual product deals in it's own topic so they don't get lost.

Tips:

Don't go on shopping sprees at Harbor freight. A lot of tools are reviewed very well but some are not. I recommend checking out reviews for any power tools you might be interested in. It pays to be selective and return what doesn't work.

There are a few Pass/Fail Topics at various sites on the net that might be helpful:Hand tools have lifetime warranties comparable to a lot of other companies. Hand tool quality is good enough for the weekend warrior and acceptable enough to supplement any better quality tools you might have.

Search around in the different coupon links in the above posts for different deals. The coupon pages have slight differences where you may find a coupon on an item you're interested in buying.

The 20% off coupon on top of the sale price might actually be better than the product specific coupons they send out. It pays to do the math.

Physical copies of the Harbor Freight magazine coupons can be found in the back of a lot of different Sports, Science, Auto, boating, wood working, and other men's magazines. A couple examples are popular science, car & driver, kiplinger's, motor trend, etc.

Some retail stores will pricematch the online prices via a printout. You might even be able to stack a 20% coupon on top as well (YMMV).

HF offers extended warranties on their products. I'm generally not a fan of extended warranties, but it might be worth it depending on the cost, product, and how much you plan to use the item.

ITC membership is probably not worth it for most at $29.99 per year. There aren't enough unique discounts and benefits that make it worthwhile.

They've been changing some of the coupons in the magazines & inserts...some now require a purchase (a LED tester, a headband flashlight)...today Parade still had flashlight coupon, and the SS insert had a coupon for multi-purpose scissors...NPN...

If you haven't shopped there recently, they are clamping down on coupon usage. The 20% off coupons really took a hit as they can no longer be used on a lot more items listed below like tool cabinets and floor jacks.

I wonder if that means the pile of free item coupons DH has been hoarding from the Sunday inserts are no longer good... (like he needs another flashlight)...

they're still good. The problem is that i've noticed they've been out of stock lately for the flashlights. Seems kind of convenient all of a sudden to be out of flashlights and then all these coupon policies happen.

They also used to substitute for the red/blue flashlights, but they no longer seem to be doing that anymore.

Looks like they're clamping down a lot.

I would also start storing receipts more carefully for returns and any sort of warranty claims. For example the hand tools have lifetime warranty, but probably need a receipt. Considering how picky they've gotten with policies, it's probably a good idea to be careful.
