    Nitrile Gloves
    An oscillating cutter
    An Angled Die Grinder
    Some LED flashlights
    Some metric impact deep well sockets
    and a Multi-meter that does frequency and temperature, screen also angles to be able to see it more easily when I have to set it down somewhere.

    You had your coupon, right?? Every time I've been in a HF this last year the person behind me has not had a 20% off and free flashlight coupon. I always have extras and am glad to share, so I pass them out discretely to the people in line behind me who are coupon challenged. Always tickles me.

    Yup!


    Multi-meter didn't light up, did the tongue test and the battery was good, so will have to take it back for an exchange.

    I saw they were doing a HF club that was $29 per year that one could join, wondered if they were going to do away with the free coupons now or if it's extra savings over what they send out. Anyone a member for it?

    Looks like a good haul. I know nothing about the HF Club.

    Seems to me the club has been around for a while. Its for extra savings not available to us who are not members. My penciling dictated that I didn't spend enough in year to just $29 to get extra savings.

    I was at HF yesterday myself. Sans coupon. Never seem to remember them. Got a solar charger for the brake battery on the PP.

    I am a member in the club and have been a couple of times, for me personally I don't think it is worth the price of joining, They never seem to have anything I want for the special members price. I have bought many of the same things the Op bought, Most of their stuff is ok I just try to be careful of what I do buy. I have their 12" planer which I think it is ok for the price I paid for it, The store was changing locations and I got it for $75.00, it was missing some parts and I made the ones I needed for it

    Looks like an HF Haul. Seems like I usually go in for one specific thing and I always endup with a few extra doodads here and there!

    I've been a member of the Inside Track Club for a couple of years. They send e-mails with special savings coupons. So far it has paid for itself every year, but since there is a diminishing list of the things I want or need from there I'll probably let it lapse one of these years.

    I have a huge collection of coupons, I get one free each week in local pennysaver.

    Im not discreet, I hand them out to everyone on line if they dont have one. I figure its the penalty HF has to pay for making us wait on long lines only having 2 cashiers with 8 or 10 possible cashier stations.

    its actually pretty sad, the management. I go to different HF's, and notice theres usuallly 2 or 3 cashiers in each one, and never really stand on a long line.

    but where I live, probably one of the most populated areas in the US, the management doesnt think during a sunday or saturday afternoon when its packed, they need more cashiers.

    A store in a rural area, same amount of cashiers, never a line. Someone has to wake up and do the math.

    I just got back from ACE hardware, the local stores had a 40% off any item today only.

    I picked up 2 blades for my multimax, made my wife come along so they wouldnt give me a hard time.
