Thread Details

Today only, Sears [sears.com] has the DieHard Portable Power 1150 jump starter for $89.99 + tax, free store pickup. Shipping is like $20 (it does contain a bunch of lead, after all Wink), which would make it somewhat less worthwhile.

Use code SAVEMORE for $5 off $50, or $10 off $100 for if you're getting something else anyway. Makes it $85 plus tax.

I've been watching this for a while. I did a bunch of research some time ago and decided that, if I were to get a jump starter, this would be the one, since it is their top-of-the-line model and has everything except the kitchen sink:
  • 1150 peak starting amps
  • Inflator/compressor with lots of attachments
  • Inverter with 2 AC outlets
  • 2 12V DC outlets
  • USB port
  • Light
  • etc

For some reason, the description isn't showing up for me, but that's most of them.

This was $75 for Black Friday before last, and I didn't jump on it. I think it used to be like $130 MSRP but now it is up to $150. Goes on sale for $120 occasionally; I saw it for $110 a couple weeks ago. $85 AC is probably as low as it will be for a while.

The reviews are a bit mixed, but after reading a lot of them, I get the impression that at least some of the people who are unhappy maybe didn't use it correctly?

EDIT: Online only. As I thought, they are still full-price in the store. So that means you can't buy it in the store for this price (I just tried it.), you have to order online, THEN go to the store to pick it up....Roll Eyes (Sarcastic).

The ones they have on the shelf there look like they've been hanging out for a while. Perhaps that could explain some of the poor reviews -- lead-acid battery sitting around discharged for a long time = unhappy customers. Will have to watch that.

I went for it. Inverter+Compressor+Jumper got the best of me. Those reviews have me concerned, but we'll see. I added the coleman xtreme cooler from another thread to get the order over $100, getting the SAVEMORE coupon to $10, plus I used FW 3% and ShipVantage for free shipping.
