9 Secret Ways to Save Money at The Home Depot

Saving money at Home Depot isn’t much of a challenge for The Curmudgeon because he tries to stay out of Home Depot. He’s a Lowe’s guy, mostly because the service at Home Depot is terrible.

And that’s on a good day.

The Curmudgeon is still waiting, for example, to hear from the Home Depot contractor who was going to install the ceiling fan he bought.

Three summers ago.

But still, if something works at Home Depot it might work at Lowe’s, too, so The Curmudgeon decided to investigate.

Shhhh!  Don't tell anyone!

Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone!

And here are a few of the very secret tips the article offered:

  • Take Advantage of All Discounts
  • Get In On Special Coupons and Offers
  • Watch for Exclusive One-Day Deals
  • Get Money Back or Freebies
  • Beat the Competitors’ Prices
  • Negotiate for a Better Deal

Excuse The Curmudgeon, but these are…secrets? Really?
