So I have a 25% off coupon for Harbor Freight for today only.  I was just about to get in my car and take the 20 minute ride up there until I read the fine print:

Coupon not valid on air compressors, generators, tool cabinets, tool carts, welders, or anything else cool (my words at the end).

What's left to buy?

Edit - Gonna use mine on a A/C manifold gauge set, hope they take the 25% off the sale price (reg price is $69, its down to $45 now)

The usual crappy stuff that you are going to use a few times and not cry when it gets broken.

Go to Ebay and search for HF coupons.  I did this last time for the 5-drawer tool cart when I couldn't find a coupon in any brochure or magazine or ad they send me.

They normally have coupons for the stuff left off the regular 20% off coupon if you search around. The garage forum has a huge thread in the general section that stays current. HF will take coupons printed off normally or you can pick up the magazine listed for $4.00 and cut it out.

That´s about right, if you didn´t buy all those big ticket items two years ago you missed out.  Now HB is just a worse Chinamart store.

Way to support America.

I guess that shitty store must be employing shitty Chinese workers too.



Paying sales and property taxes to the Chinese.



Those fuckheads!

I have to buy cheap Chinese tools because I was stupid enough to buy a shitty American car.

they also have a cheap tumbler but no idea how well it works

I just picked this up as a reloading bench using the 25% off coupon, it seems to be a new popular item there: http://www.harborfreight.com/60-inch-workbench-93454.html

It's solid wood and 100 lbs

I need to find out who shops at harbor freight so I can put you on ignore so I can never accidentally follow your advice.
Link Posted: 7/4/2012 11:22:39 AM EDT
I actually refuse to shop at Babies-R-Us anymore because they keep sending me coupons which are only good for things people who DON'T have babies might need.

I'm getting one of those hand powered log splitters I think.

for the record... HF employs a shitload of americans in their stores, uses american ports and american freight haulers to move all that chicom junk. they also pay a shitload of taxes. while i mourn the death of american manufacturing capabilities they are doing more to employ american workers and keep the economy moving than our own elected leaders are.




Brother, Thats the same way of looking at it when trying to justify buying a made in Korea car. It employs the cars haulers and dock workers. How about we all make a real effort, like I do, to buy more American made goods and REALLY make an impact on the economy. We Americans can do it and we all should demand that it be done. Demand with your wallets.

Ha ha I got one from sports authority like that. It would have been easier to write on the back what you could use it for.

You have an NRA membership right?  Right?
Take a look through the magazine and find the 20% NRA discount coupon.

The babies r us and toys r us coupons are a riot. If you have ever seen the fine print on the 20% off coupons you will see that you can't buy ANYTHING with it.
