I know many of us are regular customers of Harbor Freight, so I thought I'd pass this along.

HF has settled a class actions suit regarding their bogus sale prices which are really just the "regular price". If you purchased anything from them between 4/8/11 and 12/15/16, you're eligible to file a claim.

In a nutshell, there's 3 types of claimants. If you have receipts, you can claim 20% (cash refund) or 30% (gift card) of the amount shown on the "you saved" section of your receipt. If you have credit card statements, you can claim 10%(cash) or 12%(gift card) of your total purchase price. If you have neither but did shop there, you can sign an affidavit and claim a $10 gift card.

I don't plan on going super crazy trying to dig up every single purchase I made. But, I was able to quickly find statements showing around $500 in purchases that I intend to submit for a 12% gift card. If you've spent a decent amount of money there, it's probably worth doing.

EDIT: Oops, forgot the link.

I have dozens of email receipts, though none say "you saved". Still I'm seeing probably $700+ in the just the ones I skimmed over from the past year and I know I've basically been on a shopping spree since getting a garage in 2014. Gift card here we come...

Most of my purchases have been in the past few years since before that the nearest store was pretty far away. I figure I'm probably missing a couple hundred from 2011 to 2013, but I can't remember what card I used the most back then and don't really feel like going through the statements for every card.

If you call your card companies they can search your history and forward purchase information. At least mine did.

Whether you are near a HF or not, most online orders can ship for $6.95 except really heavy stuff i.e. generators, tool chests, etc.

Yup and for us home mechanics their stuff is more than good enough at a half or more of the price. HF and BJs are the only stores i have ever used coupons in and looked for. I keep a few HF coupons in my wallet phone case. Even handed a few to other shoppers in front of me if they had big item purchases.

I have done the same thing. I just like to see the look on their face when they save a $20 or $30 with the 20% off coupons. I even had a guy insist that he give me $10 for lunch because I saved him $30. Of course I wouldn't take it. It's a good feeling!

Yup i just keep an eye for the mint magazine and the papers with coupons..... Talking about HF i just bought their electric chain saw for 39$. Cut down my first tree this weekend......Tired of all the leaves getting in my special....(aat the hood and wipers).

Worked like a champ even for the trunk of the tree which is much wider than 14 inch (i think thats the chain saw's size).
