Saving at the Home Depot and big box hardware stores

October 20th, 2007 at 10:38 am

Saving money on groceries is great. It's the most controllable part of your budget. But I also like to save money on other things as well. If I can get a deal on just about everything I buy, I'll take it.

Home projects can just eat my budget. Here's a couple ways you can save on home projects.

First off - the big box guys like Home Depot and Lowes take everyone else's coupons. That's a plus because while the coupons might seem tough to come by, you just have to know where to look.

For instance, you can get a $25 off $200 for registering for HD's upcoming "do it herself" clinic


Then, you can also get a $10/$50 coupon for registering for the "garden club" newsletter:


If you're a military vet, a few times a year, you can get a 10% off coupon - Veteran's day, being the upcoming one, President's day weekend, 4th of July weekend, and Labor Day weekend. Some HDs will honor that discount year round.

In your Entertainment Book, there are coupons in many areas to local hardware stores like Ace or truevalue. We have some that are 20% off your purchase - the big box guys will take those.

(Right now - there's a $1 shipping and a $25 restaurants.com GC for getting an entertainment book, so worth it if yours has hardware coupons)

Lastly, if you've moved recently, you can get a coupon for 10% off (some years it's HD, others it's Lowe's) just for submitting a change of address.

You can also trade for them at sites like ours, http://www.hotcouponworld.com/forums and people are willing to swap for them.

Avoid buying them on Ebay - they tend to be overpriced.

Good luck saving money at the hardware store, and Happy Shopping!
