I've heard some say that the coupons exclude Predator engines.

Most of the new coupons exclude the Predator engines. My local store would give the 20% off the list price or the sale price but not both. Roger

I may be wrong, but it's either the sale coupon or 20% coupon they would honor. Not both.

I've been researching the deals on these engines recently. Everyone should read the fine print right on the 20% coupon. It specifically excludes the Predator engines among other items from being used with the coupon and paired with other discounts. I tried using the 20% coupon online against the $119.99 price and it does seem to take it but it won't let you start with the $99.99 discounted price. The stores may be different but I think what is happening is that these engines have gotten really popular and they are now training their staff better on how to handle the coupons.

Yes, the fine print gets you every time. Sale price or 20% off but never both at Harbor Freight.

Now if Bed, Bath and Beyond sold Predator motor they always give you 20% coupon even when the item is excluded. I bought a Dyson Animal vacuum that was on sale and they also took off another 20% when I presented their ever present 20% off coupon. .

This subject has been rehashed so many times here it's like a broken record or a skipping CD. They usually DO take the coupon. Recently they have a coupon code on the sale flyer price coupon which would mean no second coupon code but if it's a sale price with no code on it they most likely will take it anyway. Just present it and say nothing. Your chances are VERY good that they make take it. Of course, there is always the chance of not but it's a slight chance only and it's worth a shot trying UNLESS you see the ad already has a coupon code printed under the price.

The meltdown is under way ...

It must be your store that is kind and generous. I have two Harbor Freight stores I shop at and neither will accept a 20% coupon on sale priced item. Happy for you.

OK maybe it varies by location..could be. I have done it twice, once with 212cc at Salem NH and once with my 301cc at Medford MA , and Danvers MA does it too. I would still try it , speak to manager or something maybe it's the clerk, worth a try anyhow. Or maybe it's just good luck, but I'm usually not having luck so scratching my head on that one
