Clearance Lumber: Okay, this one is awesome. You can get a discount on leftover lumber, up to 80% off. So make sure to check out the clearance wood. They will be different sizes and such, but you can always find some way to use it! They mark the clearance wood with purple paint.  

Trees and Plants: Did you know that the trees, perennials and house plants all have a one year guarantee. You just dig up the item if it dies, and take it in for a replacement plant. 

Repair Tools: If you have a manufacturer’s warranty still on the tools you have bought, take it in to the store. Home Depot has expert technicians and they will repair them at no cost! 

Discounted Paint: If someone orders paint and says they don’t like it, or a mess up gallon, you can buy discount paint. Just look for the clearance paint section, they won’t always have some. 

Yellow Clearance Tags Ending in $.06: The yellow clearance tag items (ending in $0.06 are already marked down, but in six weeks they will drop the price even more. So if it is not something you need right away, consider waiting for a bigger discount. 

Yellow Clearance Tags Ending in $.03: These items that end in $.03 will drop another $0.03 before moving off of the shelf. Example: $1.03 will drop to $1. 

Changing Address: In the change of address form you get when you go to change your address, you get a packet of goodies. In the packet, you will find discounts to select stores, and in the past you can find a discount on purchase at Home Depot! 

Military Personnel Discount: Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Veterans Day, all military personnel can get 10% off. Active and Reserve military personnel can get 10% off discount everyday when you request it. Make sure to have your military ID on hand, or you won’t get the discount.
