Hrmphh. I never get any coupons either. [catalogs on occassion-
mostly from the online store, not local fliers]
I frequent the local store-- I've ordered online. I've filled out
the form and given them an email address that works.
I was sure it was regional-- but you're only a couple hours west of
me, so who knows. [I'm near Albany & if I recall correctly, you're
in Rochester. .. NY, right?]
Regular price for the orange angle grinder (91223) is $29.99. Sale price is
$19.99. Coupon price is $17.99.
That is one example of many.
If it isn't on sale, the 15%/20% coupons make it (or anything else not on
sale) available at a discounted price.
Shop smart, or spend more; it's your choice.
How does HF compare to Cummins Tools? Cummins used to set up 1 day
truck load sales in my area a couple times a year but they don't
anymore. The closest HF is about 48 miles from me but I suppose it
would be worth it if I'm buying something heavy. (I will need an engine
stand soon) I just signed up to recieve ads from HF via mail and email.
From what I have seen, Cummins and HF seem to be about the same
quality (or lack of), what do others think?
Yeah, they and a bunch of others swarm around are all essentially
interchangeable. Altho at least one went belly-up a couple years ago or
so--don't recall if it was Cummins or another, nor do I know whether it
was just a ploy to reorganize under a new monikor.
The one advantage of HF is that they have been there and are at least
reasonably good at fulfilling cases of DOA and similar absolute
disasters whereas the traveling medicine shows are just that.
I drop in on one now and then but I can't recall when I last saw
anything that was either inexpensive enough I thought it was an actual
value or if was looking for some specific whatever that the sample of
the whatever they had was decent-enough I'd take it home...
I'd guess all these outfits use the same general set of manufacturers
simply branding stuff for them w/ minor differences in cases, etc. In
some cases you can see that they're the same tool w/ a different switch
or other trivial detail that makes them just slightly off of being
