While this info won't help you, since it seems your need is urgent.
I did some research on this a few weeks ago.
I would avoid the handheld units.
I found that you can get very good long units that plug into your
computer for way less money than the typical handhelds.
__AND.. with a lot more resolution.__
The first one that comes up on that ebay link is, I think, the one I
bought. More fun than humans should have with their clothes on for
under $20. Decent image and lighting and, if by some chance you mess it
up, you're out the cost of a couple of beers at the corner bar.
Seriously, biggest drawback is having the connect it to a laptop or netbook.
and wiggling will get it open enough to free the jam. I need to drill in
from the back and think a scope will be helpful in troubleshooting. Hopefu
lly I can free this with two small holes -- one for the scope and one for t
he coat hanger.
I decided to pass on the HF unit when they excluded this from the 20% off c
oupon. Jeff ... can you give me a link to the computer-based unit?
Every Harbor Freight 20% off coupon I've ever seen has stated
"Cannot be used with any other discount or coupon..."
so yes, it simply is true, in the truest sense of the word.
Now, perhaps this is a region thing. Perhaps the Harbor Freight 20% off
coupons you get don't have that written in the fine print. Is that the
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
OK, I'll play along.
What 'Sale' item(s) did you have a problem using a 20% coupon with?
Which HF store(s) did said problem arise? Nashville? Antioch? Clarksville?
There is no "argument" for me to win, Skippy. I simply enjoy watching
you dance ;-)
I'm not so sure your gloating is all that appropriate.
My experience seems to reflect _Mike-'s
It all depends on location, location, location.
Having said that, I've noticed that certain personality types need
repeated assurance that they're "always right". ;-)

I only ask because the thread I linked to seems to indicate that in the cas
es where the cashier has told the customer that they couldn't use the coupo

Another possibility: Is it possible that the items you've tried to purchase
were specifically excluded? Again, just curious. As noted in that thread -
and in my experience - there are sale items that allow the extra discount
and then there are sales item that don't. This can be tested at hf.com.
Could it be less about location and more about specific sale items?
I guess a perfect test would be for one of you to go to a location where th
e coupon has been denied and attempt to purchase the same item that others
have had no problem with. For example, the Magnetic Base, item 5645. That i
tem is currently on sale for $2 off. I was able to use the 20% off coupon a
t a physical location and apply a 25% off coupon code on the website. No ma
nager intervention required. If you guys aren't able to use the 20% off cou
pon at the stores where you have been denied in the past, we would have the
definitive answer. Perhaps we just haven't been comparing the proverbial a
