If you like working on DIY projects for your home, you’ve most likely visited Home Depot® already. This store can be a haven for DIY enthusiasts, and customers are also offered plenty of opportunities to stretch their money. In this article, we take you through some lesser-known tips that will get you amazing discounts.
Ask for a price match: If you like an item, check if you can find something similar for a lower price elsewhere. If you do manage to find a similar item that’s priced better at a different price, get a copy of the ad and show it to a salesperson at Home Depot®. It’s likely the store will match the price.
Check out the “Special Buy of the Day”: On its website, Home Depot® offers a “Special Buy of the Day”, which comes with free shipping. You won’t know what’s actually on sale till you click on it, but you will usually be able to choose from a number of products.
You may be able to get $50 by asking an employee: It sounds shocking, but Home Depot® actually allows their employees to give customers up to $50 off on items, without needing to get approval from their supervisor. The reason the store does this is to help their employees make sales. While there’s no guarantee you’ll get a $50 discount, it doesn’t hurt to ask.
Get the veterans discount (if applicable): If you’ve served the country, you may be able to get a discount of 10% at all Home Depot® store locations throughout the country on holidays like Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Keep in mind that this discount is offered for in-store purchases and not online purchases. That said, it’s still a good idea to time your purchases around these holidays to get the discount.
Check if you qualify for a volume discount: Home Depot® offers a Volume Pricing Program, through which you could qualify for a discount if your total bill amount adds up to a minimum of $1,500. Here’s how it works - if you are purchasing multiple items for a big job, have the store associate bill all the items together, and check if you are eligible to receive the volume discount.
