I did that with an orange pool noodle too!
I scored a 70qt OT Yeti style cooler and the wheelkit and that in itself paid for my brickseek subscription for at least a year, plus other sundry items. Saved $25 a piece on 2 rifles. I'd say if you search hard enough and realize which stores have CRAP inventory control (yes Kannapolis I am talking about you) and avoid them....you can find deals.
Last night checking on my local Lowes for Craftsman 95 piece tool sets showed 2 asked about them, he scanned my bar code and showed 2 and the sale price, he asked around said do not have them, then asked about 50 piece screwdriver bits showing 10, found them picked up 2. Later saw 2 employee with the other 8. I checked later on the tool set and screwdriver bits, both showed out of stock.
The Lowe's close to work had 10 of the tool sets last night... I bought the remaining 4 after the guy ahead of me bought 3. They're not out of stock.
Gifts for my brothers and Dad.
just nabbed the last 2 Craftsmen tool sets in my area for $12.49 a piece, ordered online. Let's see if they actually fulfill the order before I roll that way.
since we're posting about success rate:
mine is ~30%. that's because i put a lot of time/miles into it when i first learned about it.
that lasted 8 days. what i learned is...stores that are far away from the interstate are the best.
for example: the Walmart in Burlington on Graham-Hopedale Road.
I posted at the beginning of this thread that YMMV. Some folks have success and some don't. I've struck out a lot, but I've also picked up firearms, bb guns, binoculars, a mini-bike, tools, air compressors, ammo, grills, oil, clothes, etc. As @Alfred mentioned earlier, you are competing with numerous other people and other forums. A lot of people already know about these deals before we even get wind of it. It is what it is.

I have struck out a lot.....far more than I have scored. That being said....just a few of the scores (the Ozark trail 73qt cooler for $30) MORE than make up (by far) for the strike outs. Once again....I for one truly appreciate the effort you put into doing this. THANK YOU! Folks need to have patience and persistence.
This is at LOWES
Swanson Tool Company Big 12 with Speedlite Speed Square $2.49

today, the Walmart in Hillsborough NC had camo pants for $5.00 a pair.
i'll attempt to send a picture later this evening.
The North HP store still has 1 or 2 of the Drexel packages mentioned in post 768. They also have a house brand kit that rings up at $12.88 unless you show the CS desk the photo of the tag on the shelf.
Let me give ya'll just one example of having to compete with other people. My local Lowe's showed 5 of the Dewalt Impact driver bit set in stock. Sent a text to my wife with the item number visible to get her to stop by. She walk in and asked an associate where they would be located. Looked in tool world. Not in tool world. They walk all over Lowe's looking for it. Finally they see a Dewalt display of items that were not on clearance. My wife stoops down to look closer and sees all 5 turned sideways so you can't read the package and pushed to the back of the display. He scans them and, sure enough, they were $9.99. My wife thanks the associate and he says "No, thank you. I'm going to get me one for that price." Literally 20 minutes later it shows 0 in stock. I was mentioning this at work and one of my coworkers mentions that her husband, who works at Lowes, "puts away" things that he knows will be going on clearance to buy them later. I have absolutely NO problem with the associate that helped my wife buying one or the rest of them. One of the things that we are having to deal with are associates at these stores that hide things until they can get them.

Yes for sure. One Leatherman I picked up at Walmart was not in the display case, not on any shelf, etc. but it was actually sitting on the counter next to the register like an employee meant to snag it but got distracted in the process. No one at the counter, I picked it up, went to another checkout and off I went. <sorry>
A Buck 110 knife I bought was dropped behind a row of cheap store brand multi tools. Found ya. Along with 3 EMPTY BOXES that should have held the same knives that somehow vanished.
Stashing stuff is very common. I can only imagine how shitty the inventory control is - maybe 33% of any one stores stock is in doubt.
CRAFTSMAN 309-Piece Standard (SAE) and Metric Polished Chrome Mechanics Tool Set $49.95
Had that happen once. Found one of those heaters that mount to the top of a propane tank sitting next to the register in Sporting Goods one Sunday morning marked down to $15. Took it to the front register and checked out cause no one was at the one in Sporting Goods.
Just a heads up. That’s a great way to lose your job in my store. It’s called staging. It is an employee integrity issue. Regardless of whether it’s being staged for attempted larceny or to DENY A CUSTOMER THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A PURCHASE first.
One of my stores old managers learned the hard way as well. Had a pricing error in our POS for external HDD that was obviously wrong. Was like 1/4 of cost. And he decided to buy 4 of them before the store opened. He no worky there anymore.
EVERY YEAR we have somebody on thanksgiving or black Friday trying to buy a door buster early. It’s a no go.
@Metalliman27055 Good to know some stores are on top of it. And I'm sure there's also customers that stash stuff to come back later- regardless, finding clearance items that are down to a one-sie two-sie inventory level is tricky for a lot of reasons.
I was in a Lowe's the other day. In a clearance display was two Leatherman Sidekick multi tools. Marked down from$49 to $29. At the register it rang up at $17. I told the cashier hold on and went and snagged the other one. Now I can have a multi tool in several different bags.

pic of receipt or any information on this?
While I like the Wingman more than the Sidekick (prefer/need scissors more than a saw), Id love to jump all over this!
Want to check my local stores
At Walmart today the worker had a roll of clearance stickers and was going crazy it seemed in the outdoor and auto sections. It looks like they're turning over for the spring. No real steals but most seemed to be around 20-30% off. As others have said most of the camo pants/shirts were $5.

Dang it. This is exactly what I needed. I was one exit from a Walmart when I saw it posted. Brickseek said they had 3. Ran in and there were 3 sitting there...or so I thought. Turns out it was an 18’ 5-in-1 for $100+ more instead.
If anybody happens to find one and is coming to the Charlotte gun show this weekend, I’ll ride out there and meet you to get it.
Well, finally landed something but it was at Lowes. I picked up 4 bags of hardwood charcoal for $20.
I saw a box of the red & white Walmart drop cords at the flea market today in Pineville.
What lengths? Did you catch the prices? Just curious what they were trying to sell them for.
