Giveaway: $50 Home Depot Gift Cards for Spring Black Friday

Home Depot Giveaway

Oh it’s my very favorite time of year.  Cleaning the yard, pulling the covers off the outdoor furniture and gardening.  Okay, cleaning the yard is not actually up there on the list, but, I do love how clean and green everything starts to look once it’s down.

And, Home Depot is celebrating spring with their Spring Black Friday events.

Spring Black Friday will be on a market-by-market basis based on climate by geography. During four different weekends in spring, prices on many of the most sought-after spring products will be significantly reduced including: a variety of live goods and lawn care products, outdoor power tools, eco-friendly gardening products, and outdoor patio and grills.

This weekend, Spring Black Friday deals will be available in markets including Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Grand Rapids, Detroit, Chicago … to name a few. Specific deals will be posted on Thursday morning at midnight.  Change the location and/or zip code to download specific deals for your area.

In addition to the store event, The Home Depot will celebrate every Friday now through to the end of May with Black Friday-type offers on their Facebook page.   These special buys will be available on Facebook only and will feature prices that are 50 to 75 percent off regular costs on a variety of gardening and lawn care products as well as patio, cleaning and decor items. All values will be different than the offers available in stores and on

And what does this all mean for us, besides the extra savings?  Yes, there is more!  To kick off their Spring Black Friday events Home Depot is offering a $50 Home Depot Gift card to two  LRWC readers.

    We had a new deck installed a few years ago by a terrible contractor that has since gone out of business. We need to stabilize a big part of it and need materials to do so.

  • Julia

    The first project for me is always sharpening the edges of the garden and planting the vegetables.

    We have a long list, but the backyard landscaping and the bathroom floor are a MUST this season.

  • Matt

    Time for mulching and fertilizing!

  • Amanda

    We are newlyweds who have moved into our first house. The previous owners did not maintain the yard at all! Due to this, we will be spending the spring cleaning up our yard before the summer under growth. This involves the removal of grape vines from trees, killing poison ivy, raking, and planting grass.

    Once all this is done, we need to re-build the back porch as it is rotting and unsafe for any future children.

    Needless to say, we have a lot of work to do and no tools to do it with. Home Depot is literally at the end of our street, and we will be spending a lot of time (and money) picking up tools and supplies there!

  • liz

    We’re going to put in a new walkway in the front and some landscaping in the back.

  • Allison

    I’d like to finally finish our bathroom!

  • Christina

    the first thing we need to do is put a storm door up. We need to keep the cold out in the winter and the cool air in in the summer. Plus, our puppy loves to sit at the window and watch the world go by this would give her another place to sit.

  • Jenn

    Our first project will be to paint our living room. We’ve been in our home for 4 years and it’s still white, ugh!

  • carolyn catona

  • Dave

    The roof….the roof…..the roof is being replaced! Yikes then septic install, landscaping, painting, tear down an outbuilding, I could go on and on! I need a 365 day summer to get it all done!

  • Liz

    Time to add some beautiful flowers to our home!! 🙂

  • Lorri

    I’ve been to Home Depot 3 times in the past week. We replaced all of our bathroom fixtures and shower heads. I also picked up paint to touch up our kitchen walls….and my husband is busy with outdoor painting/staining. The next project is our garden!

  • Melissa “green-thumb” Rogers

    We bought a new house and we don’t know where to start in the yard. Help! The list includes- fertilizing the lawn, putting up a shed, powerwashing the siding, planting our garden, installing a sprinkler system and small patio. We’ll be in Home Depot all summer!

    I want a new bistro set for my front porch

  • Kim Stewart

    I need to beautify my front and back garden. Also looking into outdoor seating.

  • Tonya

    Fixing yard fence and purchasing new lawn mower!

  • Dana Eckstrom

    I think my first project this spring will be to actually put astro-turf in this “concrete yard” we have in our South Philly home. I say it every year that I will do it so the kids have a mini-outdoor soccer field! This year, it’s gonna happen!

  • Susan C. in NY

    Getting the garden going. Ready to plant some tomatoes and cucumbers (going to try to make my own pickles this year!).

    Thanks for a great giveaway.

  • Alaya

    We would spruce up the grass in our front lawn!

  • DianeG

    My first project is the BIG spring cleanup of the yard! We had two trees come down over the winter and lots of dead branches came down too due to the ice storms. And, of course, we have to rake the annual redistribution of the neighborhood leaf piles !

  • Tanya

    My first project is yet to be determined. We are in the midst of being first time home owners. I guess anything would help for any project in store for us!
    Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize.

  • PK

    We ABSOLUTELY have to replace kitchen floor. We’ve already picked it out but keep waiting and waiting for a sale (or a windfall of money). The floor is over 20 years old and is beginning to tear.

  • tara c

    we so need this gift card, we live in S.Jersey where there is NO grass, only dirt and sand! Need grass seed for the backyard so the baby can play outside!

  • Tanya

    We have plans to install a fence this spring/summer, every little bit helps towards the cost of it!

  • Katy

    We moved into our house 3 years ago, and still haven’t painted/decorated our main living areas. Then a week ago the ceiling in our kitchen started to drip (right under our bathroom upstairs). I’m pretty sure we can find some REALLY great things to do with the money! Haha!

  • Amanda

    Yard! Yard! Yard! This would be a great help to start many outdoor projects! Thanks!

  • Jen B.

    Hardwood floors! We’re ripping out 20 year old carpeting and linoleum to put in hardwood floors. So excited!!

  • Jen

    We transplanted our azalea bushes last fall, then had a baby before we had a chance to plant new grass seed. The winter came and our dirt patches were covered with lovely snow…for a long time. First spring project – plant some grass seed.

  • Sandra K321

    The first project this spring will be the lawn! It is such a mess after the long winter and the shrubs need to be dealt with before they take over everything. The dog does a number on the lawn and since we have to be careful what we put down, it’s a challenge.

  • Amanda

    After my husband got home from Iraq, 6 months ago, we decided that it was time to finally find a place we could call home. We are excited to say that we get the keys in a couple weeks! So our first project will be making our house, our own!

  • My husband bought me two rain barrels for my birthday last year, so our first big project outside will be setting those up!

  • Sherry

    Our first project is cleaning up the gardens and the lawn. We recently had a new fence put in and boy did it make a mess of the yard. We have alot of dirt around that needs to have mulcj put over it and flowers planted in it.

  • joan s

    what project don’t we have this spring….we need to finish the deck we started last summer, to clear out fall leaves still all over the far corners of the yard, our leaking shed needs to be reroofed, my daughter wants us to build her a new swingset, and the grass, well it just needs lots of love! but that’s just for starters—-do i need to go on, because as any of us with homes know, the list NEVER ends….

  • sam s

    topsoil, grass, mulch and fencing….lots to do!

  • Kristin

    Hmmm my big priority this spring is to build a good fence around my veggie garden. Last year the bunnies and groundhogs ate up all my lettuce! No more freebies for them this year!!!

  • Jill L

    Our first big project this spring is going to be tackling the outdoors. There’s so much to do…plant our garden, plant a new tree out front with flowers and weeding and mulching… the list goes on and on. 🙂

  • Denise Sauser

    The first tackle is the garden.

  • Rachel F

    Buying shelfs and putting them up for my stockpile…LOL. I don’t have a stockpile yet, but I soon will with all the savings from this site.

  • Michelle

    Work on my flower gardens… I want to put some new plants in and move some I have around to different areas.

  • Jillian

    My project would be finally getting my homemade composter built and setup by the garden. I bought the plastic barrel 2 1/2 yrs ago when I was pregnant, but since the little one has come about and I have been laid-off, I have not purchased the wood and metal hardware still needed. It would be nice to put my garden scraps into the composter and then put the compost back into the garden. One day….!!!

  • Kris I.

    Our spring project is our landscaping!! My yard needs it.

  • Heather Minton

    We have a big section of our backyard fence that is in desperate need of repair and is on the “to do” list this summer.

    our roof – we have a huge mess because of multiple leaks 🙁

  • Monica

    I bought mhy home last year. I wanted to jump into the yard work before the winter blast came, but I was not able to get it done. I plan to build an outdoor room/deck at the far end of our yard. I can’t wait to get the table and chairs cleaned and setup on the deck with a new grill next to it! Before any of this can happen The yard must be cleared of the brush and dead trees!

  • Kim

    My front lawn! I have tried over and over again to grow grass but still have patches everywhere!!! I am determined this spring to have a beautiful lawn!

  • I have to power wash the deck and seal it. Then paint the front porch and mail box post. I’m tired just thinking about it!!!!

  • Georgia

    Spruce up the lawn & bushes. Plant flowers around the pool & power wash the deck.

  • Coreen

    Our front yard! We live amongst lovely trees which has created a great environment for growth, the wrong sort of growth. The grass is out of hand and the flowerbeds are overgrown with weeds. We plan to begin the battle of taking over the yard.

  • Susan

    Between the heavy snow and the hungry deer this winter, we will be replacing several heavily damaged shrubs!

  • Gail

    Our barn collapsed with all the snow this winter, so it looks like we will be building a new barn. Also, we have big plans for our garden this year!

  • Jessica

    my first project this spring will be gettting the new garden area ready. We moved in when winter started and i am excited about getting everything rolling for spring!!!!

    First project will be to take care of the lawn. It took such a beating after a hot summer and a snowy winter. It’s a complete mess.

  • Marlene F

  • Candice

    My fiancee and I just bought our first house! I would LOVE to have some extra home depot cash to help renovate and decorate! Thank you Cindy!!

  • april kleck

    Well…last winter my bathroom tub overflowed…thanks to my 12 year old wonderful, loving son!!! You guessed it….it leaked thru down into my dining room and ruined the floor in both the bathroom and dining room, along with the ceiling of the room…..It could have been worse…someone could have gotten hurt!!!! Soooo…we are going to be “diggin in!” Need to repair flooring and the ceiling. I can think of many other things I would rather do with the card but that would be the smart thing to do!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thabal

    We are planning to do some painting next month. Would buy painting supplies with the gift card. Thanks for the giveaway.

    My project is moving out of my townhouse, in to my mom’s house, and hopefully finding a new home to move into very very soon!!

  • Jennifer Brewer

    I am going to retexture and paint the walls in my bedroom. They are in horrible shape!

  • Paulette

    Just bought our first home this winter! Our first of many projects this spring will be to fix the rain gutter that is creating a waterfall over our front steps…though we love waterfalls…the location of this one isn’t ideal. Of course this will lead into cleaning out and fixing all of the gutters!

  • I will plant flowers and then enjoy the smiles they bring.

  • Our first project this spring has to be painting! We moved into our home 13 years ago and desperately need to update our paint in almost all of the rooms. Our three little boys have left many nicks, chips, and fingerprints on walls that are already so tired. New paint will freshen up our home and make a big difference in every room.

  • Jon Leonard

    Well, I’ve always wanted to start a vegetable garden. That could be a money saver right? Though I should probably replace the leaky toilet. Decisions, decisions.

  • Marian

    We are adding a 10′ by 15′ raised bed to our back yard for fresh veggies!

  • E. Fern

    I am going to be mulching my front and back yards (Thanks to Home Depot for the great sale on mulch!!) and planting flowers in my deckrail boxes.

  • Becca

    My #1 project is the yard. I’ve lived in my house for 1 1/2 years. In those 18 months, my nemesis has become crab grass. Half of my front yard is infested and it just looks awful! Half nice and green, and half brown, in the beginning of Spring. This year, I’m going to beat the crab grass if it kills me.

  • Jenn H.

    We are in the middle of re-landscaping our backyard as I type. Sod goes in tomorrow! So excited to be done with DIRT. Would love the gift card to buy some new plants and flowers! 🙂

    Fixing our deck! I don’t think another coat of paint will hold it together for another year!

  • I’ll be getting the garden ready. The massive snowstorms ruined the fence, the beds, everything.

    We’re going to put in a garden this year, so we can grow our own organic fruits & veggies!

  • JoAnna

    We were finally able to move from a rented lot to our own lot at the end of last year and we are looking forward to planting some bushes, border grass and sprucing up the front porch with some colorful plants and flowers!!! It is truly hard for me to believe a landscaper lived here before us! There are no shrubs or any landscaping. I hope he didn’t bring his clients to his house!

  • Krista wilcox-borsher

  • Cynthia S

  • Lena

    There are lots of projects for both inside the house and outside, but let’s start with the yard and the garden this spring. A lot of trees and bushes to trim (I already got blisters doing it yesterday) and tons of more soil and mulch is needed! We’re going to plant a decent amount of potatoes this year since our modest attempt last year was pretty successful.

  • Susan Salerno

    I definately need to do some organizing projects. Shelving, totes/baskets, and kitchen organization are all on my list.

    This spring, my first project (that I have already started a little) is to get my yard beautiful again! When my husband and I bought this house, our decision was largely based on how much we loved the yard here. But after my husband got cancer and I got pregnant, we just didn’t have the time or energy to maintain our landscape. After 6 years, the lawn is in sad shape. But this is the year that we will regain control of the yard, re-seed the lawn, re-plant the flower beds, and prune every last bush and tree on the property.
