Springtime is often the perfect time to work on those home projects. But it can be costly to complete those projects.
Here are five tips we found over at Synapse Construction on how to save money the next time you head out to Home Depot.
1.PRICE MATCH PLUS A LITTLE MORE
A lot of stores offer a price match deal, a deal where if a competitor offers a cheaper price they’ll match it, but Home Depot takes that a step further. For all in-store purchases at Home Depot, if you have a record of a competitor offering a cheaper price they’ll give you that price minus an additional ten percent.
2.TAKE ADVANTAGE OF REBATES
Many people lose out on rebates but you don’t have to be one of them! Keeping an eye out for the wide array of products Home Depot offers that come with a rebate is a great way to save in the long run. Their website has a handy rebate finder where you can peruse their products and choose those that come with the best rebates.
3.IF YOU DON’T NEED A TOOL ALL THE TIME, CONSIDER RENTING
There are many must-have tools for your home, however, there are certain solutions you probably won’t need very often. Home Depot offers everything from drills, to sanders, to bolt cutters and more for rent, rather than for purchase. You can check the availability of various tools in your area and reserve equipment at your local Home Depot.
4.LOOK FOR HOLIDAY DEALS
Black Friday deals are highly sought after, but you don’t have to fight through crazy crowds for every deal Home Depot has to offer. They have a variety of holiday weekend sales including Father’s Day and Memorial Day, as well as a number of longer term holiday promotions.
5.CHECK THE SAVINGS CENTER BEFORE YOU GO
Home Depot has an entire Savings Center online devoted to giving you the best deals. For the occasional shopper who is looking for a choice item or those of you frequent patrons out there who would make good use of savings alerts on your phone, it’s worth taking a quick look through the current deals and specials when making your purchase.
