Roberto is a TikTok user who shares videos providing money-saving tips with his nearly 50,000 followers.

The user known as @financialeducator_rob on the app has shown others how to get home improvement items from Home Depot for just pennies in a video he posted recently.

He captioned the video explaining that Home Depot’s clearance process, which is what allows shoppers to get products at such a low price, is “long” and consists of three stages.

“First they will put an item up for clearance at 10 percent discount,” he added in the caption.

“And after some time it goes to phase two where they will drop the price by 25 percent to 50 percent discount for six weeks,

“Finally in phase three they will discount it again by 75 percent and it will be taken off the shelves and out of the system after three weeks,

He continued: “If they forget to remove it from the shelves after removing it from [the] system, the item no longer [exists] at checkout and it will cost one penny!!”

To give viewers details on how to get the deal, Roberto used the video to demonstrate how an interaction with a Home Depot employee may go for bargain hunters looking to save.

Acting as a shopper, he said “Home Depot, I hear you can buy things for one penny. Is that true?”

Playing the part of a Home Depot staff member in his video, Roberto then explained that before any of the items “can cost a penny, it still has to go through the clearance process.”

The first part of the process involves giving the item a 10 percent discount, as he said in the video’s caption.

As the first part of the process involves giving an item a 10 percent discount, he said a price tag ending with 98 cents, 50 cents or even right on the dollar indicates phase one.

The next discount is 15 to 50 percent off and Roberto advises that “if you see a price tag that ends with [six cents], that’s phase two.”

He also said that phase two “normally lasts six weeks.”

In the final phase before a shopper can get something for one penny, you’d see a price ending in three cents which would be a 75 percent discount.

“And it will be [on] shelves for three weeks,” he said.

He went on to say that if in three weeks it doesn’t sell, Home Depot employees “take it off the shelves and out of the system but [they] might forget,”

“And you might see that big discount and when you ring it up, it will cost one penny.”

Knowing that the last markdown on the Home Depot item will end in three cents as it sits on the shelf for three weeks, another TikToker went on a savings hunt.

With almost 1,000 likes, TikTokers had an overwhelming reply to his video in which he shared the hack.

“But if the item is worth having, it will have sold at one of the other clearance prices long before it hits a penny,” someone said.

“True. [It’s] a long shot for sure,” Roberto replied.

A person who claimed to work for Home Depot even commented saying: “if you make it to the register and it rings a penny we have to sell at a penny but sometimes managers won’t.”

Roberto replied with a laughing emoji and asked “really?”

“Managers [probably] rip a new [one] at the team responsible for taking off shelves,” he added.

LAST MARKDOWN HUNT

Brodie is a self-described extreme couponer who shared a video taking other TikTokers on her journey hunting for items that were on their last sale price.

In her video, she showed that she found a Husky brand 50-foot air hose, that’s normally $35.98, for $9.03 and noted that it’s the “last markdown” for that product.

Brodie also let her followers know about a Ryobi One misting fan kit that was originally $99 but then showed a low price of $25.03.

She informed other shoppers that another accompanying part of the Ryobi brand fan was on sale as well before she showed off her receipt with her savings on the air hose.

As many savvy shoppers turn to Costco for its deals, the store’s customers have been complaining for years about a specific thing in its line up and it may soon be fixed.

Shopping for the winter can be pricey, but shopping pros found a viral dupe for one of the most popular cold-weather shoes.
