1. Visit HomeDepot.com for Savings and Selection Not in Store
HomeDepot.com may have prices that differ from what you’ll find in your local store. It’s always a good idea to check prices online before heading out to the store in your neighborhood. You may catch an online deal that you can’t find anywhere else.
2.Save 5% By Using a Subscription to Auto-ship Items
You can use a Home Depot subscription to automatically re-order things you know you’re going to use again. Not only will you no longer have to worry about it, you’ll receive a 5% savings on each item that’s auto-shipped to your home or business.
All you need to do is link a credit card to your account and you’ll be billed automatically.
3. Use Lowe’s Coupons at Home Depot
As crazy as it sounds, Home Depot honors every single one of the coupons that Lowes has to offer. You will need to bring in the Lowes coupon as proof.
4. Ask for Free Moving Boxes
Home Depot sells boxes at around $2 a pop, but if you’re in need of some, ask a manager before buying them. Chances are they have an abundance laying around and may set some aside for you for free.
5. Home Depot Has Vans to Rent for Big Purchases
Have a small vehicle but need to make a big purchase at Home Depot? Home Depot has the answer. You can rent a truck or van for $19 and take it home. You’ll have it for 75 minutes at that rate, or you can rent it for the day or even for the week.
6. Clearance Items With Prices Ending in 6 Will Get Discounted Again
A secret tactic Home Depot uses involves their prices. A price ending in a “6” ($8.06, for instance) will be discounted again six weeks after the last markdown date.
Look at the date printed on the tag to determine when the last markdown happened.
7. Home Depot Does Some Cutting for Free
The staff at Home Depot will cut any piece of wood for you two times at no cost. After that, it will cost you 50 cents per cut.

9. Use the Home Depot Rebate Center for Appliance Deals
The Home Depot knows there’s money in appliances and wants you to buy everything in their store. Be sure to visit the Home Depot Rebate Center to look for special rebates on ranges, dishwashers, refrigerators, washers, dryers, and more.
Buying more than one appliance at a time will only help your chances of landing a rebate!
10. Check the Ends of Aisles for the Best Savings

11. Home Depot Repairs Tools Under Warranty
Home Depot will service and repair any tool you’ve purchased from their store as long as it’s still under the manufacturer’s warranty. There is an upfront $19 diagnostic fee, but this will be returned to you if the repair is indeed covered under the warranty.
12. Teachers and Other Government Employees Can Shop Tax-Free
As long as the purchases are being made for school or office use, government employees can purchase items tax-free. Be sure to register your tax-exempt status on their site before visiting the store.
13. The Home Depot Credit Card Has Limited Appeal
Home Depot’s credit card seems great at first, offering money back the first time you make purchases at price points of over $25, $25-$299, $300-$999, and $1000, but the fun stops there. Repeat purchases in these amounts give you nothing back. If you’re going to pick up this card, stop using it after you’ve received these earnings.
14.Home Depot Rents Tools

Labor Day weekend is a good time to shop the Home Depot for bathroom and kitchen necessities. We’re talking everything from bed and bath linens to big brand name appliances!

26.Price Tags Ending With 3 are As Low as It Goes
If you’re shopping the store and see an item whose price ends in a 3, don’t wait around to make a purchase. That’s the lowest price the items if ever going to see, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
27.Purple Marked Wood Has a Huge Discount
If you need wood for a project that’s not too fancy, head to the back of the store and enquire about wood that’s marked in purple. Home Depot offers 70% off these pieces of wood that are left over, damaged, or warped.
28. Save Money With Bulk Pricing
If you’re planning to buy a lot of something, look into bulk pricing. There are thousands of items in the store that are eligible for savings if you buy enough of the item.
29.Use the Oops Bin for Savings
Paint that isn’t tinted properly or ends up the wrong color isn’t thrown away. It’s put into an oops bin where is it sold at a huge discount. Of course, you’re going to be stuck with whatever color is in the bin, so choose carefully!
30.Look for Holiday Items Right After the New Year
Like most stores, Home Depot is in a hurry to get rid of holiday items as soon as Christmas is over. Things are marked off up to 75% right after New Year’s Day and anything that survives to the middle of January will get bumped to 90% off.
31.Look for an In-store Coupon Book
Stores often have a coupon book for cleaning supplies in the store that you can pick up and use. Be sure to look around in the cleaning aisle or at the store entrance for one of these.
32.Fill Out a Home Depot Survey
Most of us don’t bother with all the text at the bottom of the receipt, but you can make a lot of money with Home Depot’s. Log onto the website and fill out the survey using the ID and password on the receipt to be eligible to win a $5000 prize when the store draws a few names every quarter.
33.Bring Back Dead Plants
A little morbid, perhaps, but Home Depot will take back and dead plant that you purchased from their store within a year of purchasing it. You don’t need to explain what happened, you just need to bring in your receipt.
Plants bought online that don’t look great can be replaced within three days for a free replacement as well.
34.Members of the Military Get a Discount
Anyone currently serving, or retired or disabled veterans and spouses are all eligible for a 10% discount off just about anything in the store. Most of the time this discount won’t pair with other discounts, though.
You will be required to present a military ID that says “Service Connected” on it.
35.Do Some Price Matching
Home Depot will price match a purchase you’ve made from their store and even throw a 10% discount on it if you bring in proof that another store beat their price.
This only applies to stores with physical locations, and not the big wholesale stores like Sam’s Club and Costco.
