12 smart strategies to save you money at Home Depot, ways to save money at Home Depot from a money-saving expert, Home Depot savings tips, smart shopping

Are you a Home Depot shopper? Most of us are. We wander in when we need something and don’t really pay that much attention to saving money when we shop.

We found 12 ways to Shop at Home Depot Like a Money Saving Pro. We welcome your ideas too!

1. Check the Daily Deals Section

Every day online, you can find deeply discounted merchandise. These are “today only” offers while supplies last.

2. Shop the online clearance section.

Within this tab, you can sort by department and price. It’s a great place to grab a bargain at the end of the season.

3. Don’t pay for shipping

Most orders of $45 or more will automatically qualify for free shipping. If you are spending less than $45, you can choose free same day pick up at your local store.

4. Return items without a receipt

Home Depot has a generous return policy. You have 90 days from purchase with a valid sales receipt. If you have lost your receipt, you can ask for store credit. Have you ever returned dead plants or flowers back to Home Depot? I have seen others do this, but I have never had the nerve.

5. Do a price match for an additional 10% off
