Save an extra 7% on all of your Home Depot purchases by buying discounted gift cards through Gift Card Granny. They ship free and arrive quickly.

Join the Garden Club

Sign up for The Home Depot Garden Club to receive special members-only coupons for free plants, buy-one-get-one free offers and more.

Shop with Coupons

Before you head to the store, do an online search for "Home Depot coupons." You're sure to turn up something that you can print and take with you.

Tip: Home Depot honors competitor coupons, so Lowes coupons will work too.

Buy the Oopses and Leftovers

Bad things happen to good merchandise. Locate the oopses and leftovers in your Home Depot, and you'll be rewarded with some very big savings.

Some Things to Look For:

  • Mistinted paints
  • Scratched or dented appliances
  • Broken bags of soil, mulch and concrete
  • Wood scraps leftover from pieces they've cut for another customer
  • Plants with brown leaves/wilting

Shop the Clearance Section

Most Home Depots have several clearance sections throughout the store. Find them; then check them regularly.

Ask for Your Military Discount

Flash your military ID, and get 10% off of your total purchase (up to $500). This offer applies to all active military personnel, reservists, retired or disabled veterans and their immediate family.

All other veterans can snag the same 10% discount on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Veterans' Day.

Price Match

It pays to compare prices. Find a better deal on an identical item at another store, and Home Depot will beat their price by 10%.
