A hot deal is a significant discount (including shipping) on DIY or workshop related tools, machines, clothing, books, lumber, or general interest items. Use your discretion. If you think we would be interested, post it. Please include a link, if online, a description, and the price. The discount amount in % or $$ is appreciated but not required.

Examples:
  • eBay Buy It Now (BIN)
  • Amazon sales, Deal of the Day (DOTD)
  • Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD)
  • Sales, Coupons, Coupon Codes
  • Lowes/HD closeouts
  • Craigslist finds
  • Black Friday

NOT hot deals:
20% off HF coupon, because they are available all the time.
Cheaply made tools.
eBay auctions, because we don't know the final price until the auction ends.
Your favorite or most useful tool.
Amazon "Just Launched" sellers with very low prices (scammer)
Amazon sellers that ask you to email first (scammer)

  • What is an Amazon Warehouse Deal? It is an item with damaged packaging or the item itself may be damaged. It could have been dropped off a truck, punched with a fork truck, opened for a photograph, or a customer return. They are sold as used and the manufacturer warranty may be void. Most of the AWD I've bought were only damaged packaging but you are taking a risk. Note: just because they are sold as "used" does not mean they are actually used. Some customers scam Amazon by returning junk instead of the real product and Amazon may ship that wrong item to you.

  • Amazon '2 Left' Deals Occasionally there will be a super low price on a new item that says "Only 2 left in stock". Buy one and the last one jumps back to full price or you can buy both at the reduced price. For example you might see a $50 widget for $8, 2 Left. If you buy one, the last one jumps back to $50, or you can buy both for $8 each ($16 total).

  • Once in a great while there will be "1 left" and Amazon decides they want it gone and it will drop in price until someone buys it.

While a 1500W (115v) heater won't heat an entire 2 car garage, it will still help. I have a portable A/C that has a heat pump setting for winter heat and it can normally make the garage comfortable enough to not need a jacket but when it is really cold or I have had the heat off for a few days, I use a 1500W IR heater to give it a boost and heat things up more quickly. I have it over the where I stand when working at my bench and it makes a huge difference by creating a nice zone of comfort until the A/C - Heater can catch up.

BTW, I suspect that at least some of the weird behavior we have been seeing lately may be due to the fact that they have been testing https. There could be some other changes as well.

Someone posted a topic about the 11% rebates at Lowes for those of you in areas that also have Menards (Midwest) who apparently regularly have 11% rebates. It looks like Home Depot also offers the rebate as well. Check it out for links to the rebate forms.

Home Depot and Lowe's have military discount. For Home Depot you show your military ID. They don't offer military discounts for online or special order purchases. For Lowe's you need to setup a web account and they have an online verification process. Once verified you give them your phone number in the checkout line and they apply the discount. I've not tried ordering from Lowe's online but I would assume the discount would work.

It does Wayne. I helped my grandfather get his set up. You just sign into your MyLowes account that you used when you went through the verification process and order from there. The discount will be automatically applied.

eBay's got another 10% ebay bucks deal going. I've been holding out for another discount coupon to come along - need an impact wrench - but haven't seen one in a while. I wonder if they've been phased out…
