One great thing about having multiple home improvement stores is that you can take advantage of the price match guarantee. Home Depot has fewer incentives than some of the other home improvement stores, but there are still opportunities to save.
Home Depot will accept manufacturer coupons.
Discounted Gift Cards
Purchase discounted gift cards at sites, such as GiftCardGranny.com . As of Tuesday, May 6, discounts varied from 2-29 percent.
Shopping portals, such as Ebates (http://www.ebates.com) or MyPoints (http://www.mypoints.com) offer cash back incentives for doing your shopping on-line.
If you know the approximate amount that you plan on spending at Home Depot, you can buy gift cards at a store that offers gas points, for example, Kroger. This will not save you money up front at Home Depot, but will let you recycle a couple of dollars at the gas pump.

Currently, Home Depot is offering a coupon for five dollars off a fifty dollar purchase for new members. The Home Depot site advertises over $300 in annual savings through this program.
Home Depot will price match to competitors' ads, and they will beat their prices by 10 percent. The price match policy is available at http://www.homedepot.com/c/PM_New_Lower_Price
Check for rebates on items. Remember, rebates will stack with the price match guarantee.
Home Depot offers "Do It Yourself" workshops for adults and kids. Check out the schedule for upcoming events: http://workshops.homedepot.com/workshops/home
