Around the coffee pot This forum is for any topic that you would normally talk about at the office "around the coffee pot". Jokes, tall tales, and true stories are welcome as long as they are clean and in good taste. I only ask that you steer away from topics on religion or politics. Go ahead and pull up a chair and pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the conversation.

Harbor Freight -- Drug pushers

Tools are like crack cocaine. HF is like a drug dealer--they know you need it, and they're all too willing to help you buy it. Those crazy sales, those 10% coupons. Not a week goes by without another e-mail enticing me to drive across town for another hit of green metal and vile (yet sweet) anti-corrosion treatment. Mmmmmm.

They know where I live. If I try to kick the habit, will they show up at my door with ball peen hammers? I think I need an intervention.

Sometimes I just go in for paraphernalia--those half price clamps, some sanding belts, a blade or two at half price... But I end up spending three figures before I know what's happened.

Dropped to 65 today, perfect working weather, but I'm stuck inside working. And staring at this flier and 10% coupon, needing my fix.

eblevens- do a search for HF coupon on the forums and you'll find an image of said coupon from HF. Just print them out, and take one with you each time you go in! There's no expiration either, so you can print stacks of them all day long. Too bad you can't use more than one at a time. :P

Ed,

I don't think so. The flyer I saw, which was at:

http://www.harborfreightusa.com/show...eid=202&email=

Said that the sale (and 10% off coupon) ended 2/5/04. However, I believe the link I just gave you is their permanent sale link. It now has a different deal with a $5 or $10 off coupon for $50 or $100 purchases (respectively), which is good through 2/11/04.

Check the link on Wednesday or Thursday. It might have a new coupon then.

Jeff

Probably need to start a Harbor Freight Anonymous recovery group, for green tool addiction.
