Harbor Freight warning???

Recommended Posts

In the middle of the semi annual solar A/C discussion, the Harbor Freight generators came up, the 2000 w and the 4000 w ones.

Went to HF today to get a new shop roll around tool box. Between the flyers, store and mail prices I found what I wanted at 3 different prices.

HF is starting to sell some good stuff, yeah team, but they still run the place like a flea market.

I checked  the generators out.   The 2000 w was 499.00 store price, 459.00 parking lot sale price, 439.00  special coupon price, and 429.00 super coupon price. The 4000 w was just as bad, 399.00, 359.00, 329.00 and 289.00 super coupon price.

So check every coupon before you buy anything there.

I thought that was a marketing ploy,  keeps people going through their coupons and in and out of the store.

Hey so it takes a little work to get some crazy good deals. Works for me. No coupon at Harbor Freight is still better than buying a similar product anywhere else. Especially for me because every time I put a tool down it mysteriously gets sucked into some kind of black hole and doesn't reappear until I've replaced it.

i've noticed in the monthly HF catalog they mail to me, the same exact item may be on three different pages at different prices. once realized, it forces you to browse the entire catalog, and i usually find something else i would like to have.  crafty and excellent marketing ploy on HF's part. not to mention checking on line prices, as well as in store flyer price. it is a little work but i don't mind, in the end, saving a few bucks helps. joe from dover.

Have you noticed HF catalogs are not thrown out or is it just me?    Jim

I appreciate the heads up on their pricing and coupons.  I will have to be doing extra work if I go there.

When a friend wants to borrow a tool, I lend him a Harbor Freight. If he doesn't return it, I can just buy another.

When I bought my 87 New Horizon back in 2014, it had a Genset 3000 watt generator with 34 hours on it.
It runs fine and powers everything in the Motorhome as it should. But, I saw one of the Harbor Freight 3200/4000 watt generators for sale for $279.00 and I couldn't resist... so, I removed my passenger seat and found a new home for my Backup Backup generator.

Also check their ads in magazines, I get a lot of magazines with Harbor Freight ads with even more different prices than their catalog that month, but make sure to check the dates the ads are good for, often you can go back several months and find a better price that is still honored.
