Home improvement projects can be expensive. It’s fun to dream of a bathroom or kitchen remodel, but when it comes to actually coughing up the cash for it…yikes!

Before you make your next trip to Home Depot, you’ll want to first search for Home Depot coupons.

The savings from these coupons can really add up, especially when you look at the deals that put up to 15% back in your pocket! And even if you’re making a smaller purchase for your home or garden, you can still find ways to save.

Ways to Get Home Depot Coupons

Whether you’re working on the inside or outside of your home, you’re planting a garden, or you have a larger construction project, there are plenty of ways to get Home Depot coupons to help you save.

1. Complete an Online Workshop

If you sign up for and complete a live stream online workshop at HomeDepot.com, you’ll receive a coupon via email once your workshop is complete. The workshops are completely free!

Bonus: You’ll learn valuable skills and fundamentals to help you care for your home.

This will be a 15% off coupon with a maximum discount of $200. Be sure to check the expiration date as Home Depot may only give you a few days to use it.

Online workshops vary by location. Be sure that you’re choosing a live stream workshop with the 15% off coupon listed in the description.

Current live stream workshops near me include Homeowner 101 – Outdoor, Homeowner 101 – Indoor, and Homeowner 101 – Systems. You may find others near you.

2. Sign Up for the Newsletter

Sign up for Home Depot’s email newsletter to receive a coupon via email for $5 off your next $50 online purchase. Just click the “Get Coupon” button and enter your information.

Your coupon code will expire in two weeks. (It says in-store coupon, but I received a coupon code for online shopping.)

Note that by providing your email address, you’re agreeing to receive emails from Home Depot about special promotions, offers, how-to projects, and design ideas.

3. Sign Up for Mobile Alerts

When you sign up for Home Depot’s newsletter above, you’ll need to enter your mobile number.

You can either opt in to receive mobile alerts at that time or reply Y to the text you’ll receive after signing up. Otherwise, you can just sign up for Home Depot mobile alerts separately.

Once you sign up, you’ll get a coupon for $5 off your next $50 in-store purchase. I had a whole three weeks to use my coupon after signing up! Note that you’re consenting to receive automated marketing messages (up to 10 text messages/month).

PS – This is an entirely separate offer from the email newsletter signup coupon – you’ll get two different codes/barcodes to use.

4. Sign Up for the Garden Club

Sign up for Home Depot’s Garden Club to receive a coupon via email for $5 off your next online Lawn & Garden purchase of $50 or more. The coupon code will expire in two weeks.

Garden Club members will also receive emails regarding special promotions, offers, how-to project information, and garden design ideas.

5. Sign Up for Garden Club Mobile Alerts

Again, when you sign up for Home Depot’s Garden Club, you’ll need to enter your mobile number. At that time, you can opt in to receive Garden Club mobile alerts or just hit Y in reply to the text message you’ll receive.

As with the others, this is an entirely separate offer and you’ll receive a unique bar code to scan in-store. The value of the coupon is the same: $5 off $50 or more. You’ll have three weeks to use your bar code before it expires.

6. Sign up for Style & Décor Emails

Sign up for Home Depot Style & Décor emails to receive a coupon for 10% off select furniture, home accents, bedding, and bath items. You can also receive the Home Depot Décor Catalog via snail mail if you so choose.

The coupon I received was good for online purchases only and expired in one week.

7. Visit CouponCabin

CouponCabin rounds up a big list of Home Depot coupons and deals. They even highlight the very best offer for each day at the top of the page so you don’t have to scroll through a long list to get the biggest savings.

Each deal lists how many people used the link today as well as average savings (or average order) along with an expiration date.

CouponCabin even proves to you that the coupons and deals work by showing screenshots. Nifty!

Also, if you place an order and for some reason, the coupon code doesn’t work, they’ll compensate you for your troubles with a $25 gift certificate.

Besides listing Home Depot coupons, CouponCabin will also give you cashback on your purchase when you sign up for a CouponCabin account and shop through their links.

It’s completely free to get started, and cashback will automatically post to your account.

8. Visit Savings.com

Savings.com is a great place to look for Home Depot coupons. They list any available coupons as well as current deals (like Home Depot’s Deal of the Day) and special buys.

They also have a separate list of any free shipping coupons currently available.

I like the rating system at Savings.com which allows you to give a thumbs up or thumbs down if a coupon or deal worked for you. You can also see how many other people have used the links to see which are the most popular.

And if you click on the “Show Details” button below each coupon or deal, you’ll see when it was last validated and verified.

9. Visit Groupon

Groupon collects Home Depot coupons along with listing their sales and deals. To get started with saving, just click the “View Sale,” “Get Deal,” or “See Code” button by the related offer.

You can also see how many other shoppers have used a particular deal, and Groupon lists the expiration date so you can see at a glance if it’s still valid. Click the “View Terms” link for each deal to see any applicable fine print.

10. Visit Slickdeals

Slickdeals lists Home Depot coupons, promo codes, sales, and discounts.

It’s a similar layout to what you’ll find at some of the websites listed above, but with the extra component of having an online community of other deal finders that share saving tips and tricks in their online forum.

There’s also a free Slickdeals extension available for Google Chrome that will automatically apply any available Home Depot coupon codes at checkout.

11. Open a Home Depot Credit Card

I’m not a big fan of opening store credit cards just for a discount, but it is one way to get Home Depot coupons.

Save up to $100 on your qualifying purchase:

  • $25 off purchases of $25 – $299
  • $50 off purchases of $300 – $999
  • $100 off purchases of $1000+

This savings is not combinable with other discounts like those mentioned above (or below).

Other Ways to Save at Home Depot

If you’ve used up the above ways to get Home Depot coupons, don’t fret! There are still plenty of ways to save at Home Depot.

12. Home Depot 11% Rebate

Home Depot offers an 11% Rebate several times throughout the year. It’s typically offered the same weeks that Menards offers their 11% rebate, and it’s only valid in select stores…although there are a lot of stores that offer it.

This rebate comes in the form of an 11% merchandise credit on a Home Depot gift card. It’s valid for in-store purchases only, and you must submit your rebate online or via mail within 30 days of purchase.

Don’t forget to send in your receipt!

Note that certain SKUs and products are ineligible, so be sure to check the fine print. You can check the status of your rebate request online or via phone.

Allow 6-8 weeks from the date of submission for your rebate (a.k.a. gift card) to arrive in the mail.

13. Home Depot Subscriptions

Got a household product you buy regularly? Check to see if it’s available with the Home Depot Subscriptions delivery service.

You’ll save 5% on regular deliveries of products like household essentials, cleaning supplies, air filters, water filters, and lots more. And there’s no yearly or startup fee to use this service.

Products that are eligible for Home Depot Subscriptions will have a “Subscribe and save 5% off every order” option on the product page.

Choose the Subscribe button, then select how often you want to receive the product (options include every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 12 months). Click the “Subscribe” button and proceed to checkout.

Subscriptions can be adjusted when you log in to your Home Depot account. You can pause subscriptions, change the frequency with which you’d like to receive them, and cancel.

Just be sure to allow up to 24 hours for any order modifications or cancellations to be processed.

14. Low Price Guarantee

Home Depot insists that nobody beats their prices. That’s why they offer a Low Price Guarantee for both online and in-store purchases.

For online purchases, they will match the price of the item(s) plus shipping costs. Items must be available from one of Home Depot’s competitors to ship to your location (so it won’t work on items that are out of stock).

Contact their customer service before placing your online order by calling 1-800-430-3376 or texting 38698.

For in-store purchases, you’ll need to bring the ad, printout, or photo with you to the register for validation. Also, be patient as the associate at the register may need to take the time to contact the other retailer.

Exclusions to the low-price guarantee apply.

15. Military Discount

According to ID.me, Home Depot offers active duty military members a 10% discount. Just present a valid military ID to the cashier at checkout.

Military members may be able to save even more during military holidays or weekends like Veterans Day and Memorial Day.

Veterans can also receive a 10% discount, but it’s not entirely clear as to whether that’s just during military holiday weekends or all the time. As of this writing, Home Depot does not have its official policy posted online.

It’s probably worth a call to your chosen store ahead of time to see how they’ll handle the military discount for you.

16. Rebate Center

Did you purchase an appliance? Chances are there’s a rebate for it. Home Depot will probably have the rebate highlighted next to the product in-store or linked online, but you can also check their Rebate Center to find information on manufacturer rebates, recycling rebates, residential rebates, and even tax credits.


Between signing up for emails or text messages, price matching, or qualifying for special rebates, there are plenty of ways to get Home Depot coupons and ways to save at Home Depot.

Give one or more of these a try to keep your hard-earned cash in your pocket.
