Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons and the "free" trinkets like little flashlights,etc. Haven't seen any of these coupons in a few months, at least in Florida .


Get Harbor Freight's smartphone app. You'll often get the 20% coupon with the app.

And how many cordless tool ads are labeled "Tool Only" meaning you have to buy a battery separately? Example: 20v Hypermax™ Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2 In. Drill/Driver - Tool Only $44.99. So you have to buy a battery - Cheapest is: 20v HyperMax™ Lithium-Ion 1.5 Ah Compact Battery for $22.99. Of course the battery is useless without a charger, cheapest is: 20v Hypermax™ Lithium-Ion Rapid Charger again, for $22.99. Now your up to $90.
No different than cordless tools at any other store/any other brand. I have quite a few Ryobi cordless tools; only a few of the combo packs actually include batteries and charger. Same thing with Makita, DeWalt, Craftsman, etc., which makes perfect sense; once you have a charger and 2-3 batteries, you certainly don't need a battery and charger for every single tool. That's kinda the point of having tools that use a common battery, isn't it?

I have quite a few HF tools, mostly hand tools, and have never had any of them break (lifetime warranty if they do) other than the tip of a small round-end allen wrench; which they replaced immediately. I also have several electric tools (not the cordless) that I am perfectly happy with, including an Bauer SDS Max demo hammer, Banks nail gun, Chicago Electric circular saw, and Fortress compressor. Now granted, I am not using them 8 hours a day to make a living, but I do all of my own maintenance on my RV, a Hummer, a car, wife's Tahoe, 3 PWC, 4 ATVs, 4 motorcycles, 3 trailers, and of course my home, not to mention working on my adult kids' stuff. Most of HF's hand tools are certainly better than today's "Craftsman", and cheaper to boot, and their higher end power tools are more than acceptable for non-commercial use. I also buy their Thunderbolt Alkaline batteries when they are on sale; they last just as long as Duracell or Energizer, at half the price.

If you go to their website, the "Instant Savings" section is where you can find the prices that corollate to what used to be "coupon" prices.

I have to believe that many of the Harbor Freight "naysayers" have likely not shopped HF lately, and instead are relying on what HF "used" to be/sell.

This morning I received an email from HF.... guess what, the free trinkets are back ! LED flashlight,masks,tarps. Not that I'm going to go for one on it's own, but if I should need something, I'll certainly take my freebie
