Re: safe cooking

Home Depot follows WalMart's pricing policy: Make a big deal over the sale items, charge full freight for everything else people might wander in for. BUT if you use a smartphone and a bar code app, and if you can find the same item elsewhere "locally" for less, HD also will give you the lower price plus another 10%.

So a word to the frugal sailor...Light bulbs, often 25% less at Lowes, HD will give you the lower price plus 10%. Shower heads and plumbing? Bed Bath Beyond is often 25% less (and they're never cheap!) and HD will give you the discount plus.

But you do have to ask for it, unless you get lucky & the Depoid helping you is anxious to keep your business, and offers to check the price for you. (G)
