We love shopping at The Home Depot!

If you’re in the mood to get your outdoor space ready for spring and summer or just want to give your home a fresh makeover, The Home Depot is a great place to shop. Not only do they offer amazing deals every spring for your home and garden, but you can save even more money on your spring and summer projects with the following tips and tricks.

1. Score $5 off lawn & garden purchases.

Getting ready to plant flowers or fertilize the yard? When you sign up for The Home Depot Garden Club, you’ll get two $5 off $50 Lawn & Garden purchase coupons just for joining! You’ll get one when you opt in for text offers AND another when you subscribe to their emails – and they’re both different coupons! Note that the email coupon is valid for one week, and the text offer is valid for three weeks after signing up.

Home Depot Annuals

If you’ve signed up for mobile Garden offers in the past, text STOP to 57227 and then sign up again. By registering for the club, you’ll also get access to over $300 in annual savings, monthly lawn and garden ideas tailored to your region, outdoor project planning tools, and more!

Can’t keep plants alive? No worries! The Home Depot offers a 1-year guarantee on perennials, trees, and shrubs, so if your plant dies within the first year of planting it, you can actually dig it up and bring it in-store for a replacement or refund.

2. Shop the Spring Black Friday sale.

Why wait until November when you can score similar deals in April?

The Home Depot offers the lowest prices of the season during their Spring Black Friday Sale that occurs in early April. In fact, this sale is currently live now both in-store and online – click here to view some of our favorite deals.

During this annual spring sale, expect to score savings like 30% off patio furniture, up to 60% off paver stones, 50% off hanging baskets, up to 47% off colored mulch, 25% off power lawn mowers, over 30% off potting soil, and more.

If you’ve signed up for mobile offers in the past, text STOP to 65624 and then visit the Home Depot site to sign up again.

3. Save on your next painting project.

If you need only a small amount of paint for a project or want to try a color before paying for a full gallon, you can order 8oz samples on HomeDepot.com for as low as $2.94. Plus, you’ll get free delivery to your home when ordering these paint samples, so order as many as you’d like!

However, if you need to paint an entire room or house, one of the best times to purchase gallons of paint is during a holiday (like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day), as they often offer paint rebates, such as $10 off one-gallon paint cans and $40 off 5-gallon paint buckets.

4. Don’t pay full price for a grill or lawn mower.

If you’re planning to make a large purchase soon (such as a grill, lawn mower, patio furniture, etc.) or are running a business and want to save by buying in bulk (note that technically anyone can sign up), consider signing up for the free PRO Xtra Loyalty program.

Greenworks Lawn Mower

Not only will members get volume discounts, paint rewards, purchase tracking, and more, but you’ll also receive a rare coupon valid for $20 off a select purchase of $200 or more after signing up. Every little bit helps!

5. Get 10% off spring home decor.

Want to spruce up your indoor space for spring or summer, too? When you subscribe to Style & Decor emails from The Home Depot, you will get an offer in your inbox for 10% off your online purchase of select home items – valid for two weeks after signing up. Note that the coupon is not valid in-store.

This is a great time to shop online for spring decor and save on artificial plants and wreaths, spring home accents, select furniture, wallpaper, bedding, backsplash tiles, and more.

    You can have a pro extra account without a business?

    • Lew

      Sorry. Just saw your comment about anyone being able to sign up. Thank you.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        No worries! You’re welcome, Lew! Thanks for the update!

    The whole “dig it up and get your money back” is kind of funny. If something doesn’t come back the next spring, are you supposed to just bring in the dirt it died in?

    • holly

      Yes. I did this last spring! They’re for real.

    Just stopped by Home Depot for the first time in quite a while and saw signs everywhere advertising a 10% discount for veterans and active duty military. In the past they only offered this discount on July 4th and Memorial Day, while Lowe’s offered it everyday. I signed up at customer service and got an extra 10% off of the $99 ladder they had on sale! Just wanted any veteran/military families out there to know.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh awesome! Thanks so much for the heads up!

    • Laura

      That’s awesome and thanks for your family’s service!

    • Janell

      Julie, my dad always forgets to ask about the vet discount. What did you have to do at customer service? Or is that just where you checked out at?

      • JulieL

        At customer service there was a computer set up for me to enter my application information. When I submitted the application I then checked out at a regular register, mentioned the discount and the cashier applied it. She told me in a few days when the application is finalized I will just enter my phone number at checkout and the discount will be applied. Hope that helps!

    • Jamie

      The discount has always been every day. Just show your military ID at checkout, it is very easy and the cashier always simply responds with “thank you for your service”.
