I bought this earlier this year and it works great.

alchemista 12-09-2012 10:13 AM

Cannot get the Craftsman Club discount to show up. I'm signed up with Craftsman Club (that was hard to get signed up for also).

google "craftsman club sears". Go to the sears.com google result. Sign up with one click (if you are already logged into sears.com). Click OP's link. Add item to the cart. The discount will appear in the cart.

Thanks for the play-by-play, but that's what I did and it's still not working. Even went to the final checkout page and still shows up at $13.49.

I'm guessing it's not having me joined, but I can't tell. If you login to craftsman.com, and click on the Craftsman Club tab on the account, there is a join icon. I've clicked join, and then it takes me to the Shop Your Ways Rewards page, not confirming that I've joined or not.

By the fact I can login to craftsman.com it seems like that should be enough to verify I'm joined, but I don't see another obvious way - lame.

OP says it's free to join on the product page, but there is no join link there (maybe because I'm already joined?)

cooldude 12-09-2012 01:53 PM

same thing for me. not giving me any discount even if I go thru crafts man website

phedoblue 12-09-2012 01:53 PM

got the discount for me , awesome

alchemista 12-09-2012 07:08 PM

I called Craftsman Club and they verified I was part of the club, but they say this multimeter is not part of the promotion. I explained that it says it right on the product page, but her "resources" say it's not part of the promotion.

Sears is such a crap company to deal with.

toddrhodes 12-09-2012 07:44 PM

I bought one of these for my FIL at a Sears B&M and they definitely gave me the CC discount. I didn't even expect it nor was it marked on sale in the store. Thought I was spending $23 and walked out for $12 and some change. I'll take it... heck, should have bought two.

norse2 12-09-2012 07:58 PM

thanks - ordered it and used my points to get it down under $8 total w in-store pickup

mZimm 12-09-2012 08:13 PM

The Craftsman one has an A/C voltage sensor included with it - good if you do a lot of in-home wiring. The Craftsman also has a rubber boot around the meter itself, which I like. Makes it a little more forgiving when dropped.

I use this same meter every day at work. I love the size and it's reliable.

krayzie 12-09-2012 09:05 PM

For whatever reason, I am not getting the 10% off.

gaore 12-09-2012 09:06 PM

Thanks. Will buy

loveless13 12-09-2012 09:16 PM

This is an amazing deal, if I didn't have several other meters/voltage detectors, I'd be all over this like white on rice. As for the person earlier who was comparing this meter to another, buy this one. This includes a voltage detector and if you have no idea about meters and do not use them for anything but residential use this is a great buy.

chavezone 12-09-2012 09:24 PM

Thx OP
In 4 1
:repped:

uberw00tness 12-09-2012 09:29 PM

Agree with the sentiments in this thread. This is a good enough meter if you don't do any real intensive electronics work (I have a fluke 87 [amazon.com] for that). Although the free Harbor Freight units also serve the same purpose (is there power? about how much?)

But this includes a free AC tester so that makes it a good value for the 99%. Plus it's craftsman so I assume lifetime warranty?

nbbchaz 12-09-2012 09:35 PM

To the guys that have the club membership and it's still not working: try proceeding to checkout and going up until the page you submit before giving up on the discount being applied. I just did this before actually submitting and the discount was applied.

On another note: I have a cheapass MM (that does the job regardless, just like loveless and uber stated), but am thinking about getting this one strictly for the little speaker it seems to have to test continuity.

dflores88 12-09-2012 09:35 PM

Perfect, exactly what i was looking for! Thanks!!

Ryan456789 12-09-2012 09:37 PM

Nice deal, has great reviews. Got it for my son to add to his growing tool/shop collection.the $12.14 price worked for me, total came to $13.11. When checking out, my Craftsman club # already was in my cart after I had logged in. Thanks OP for the heads up for the great deal.

gonepostl 12-09-2012 10:29 PM

Step 1.) sign up for craftsmans special club
Step 2.) search "multimeter"
step 3.) select the multimeter and checkout through craftsman club NOT sears. To get this price you checkout through craftsmans club

ninedayfall75 12-09-2012 10:36 PM

Thanks OP. I just started restoring arcade cabinets, so I am sure this will help a lot.

$12.14 worked for me.

MT2008 12-10-2012 12:24 AM

I finally got the $12.14 to work. If you're still having trouble verifying if you've joined the Craftsman Club, on the Craftsman website, hit the Craftsman Club at the top right and hit buy now on any of the items under Top Deals and on the product page, if you're not in the club, there will be an option to enroll on the right hand side.

AceNJ 12-10-2012 01:30 AM

Ok this was driving me nuts but basically you need to proceed through checkout to get the 10% off. Anyway in 4 1, thanks. Will make a great gift for someone I know.

thomaslw 12-10-2012 01:52 AM

if you want to buy from sears.com and not craftsman.com, a quick way to get you logged in to your craftsman account is to go to an item that explicitely has the promo (another multimeter has it, it says so directly when you do a search), then go to that page, and on that page log in to craftsman.

dementia 12-10-2012 02:22 AM

Couldn't get cheaper than the 13.49 price, but still a good deal and I've been needing both the multi meter and the AC voltage detector. Thanks

cubamex 12-10-2012 02:41 AM

Couldn't get the discount still bought it though. Thanks

The ability to read is a terrible thing. :rolleyes:
Just because it says crapsman on it does not mean that it has a life time warranty. :eek:

General Warranty: 1 year limited

spicytofu 12-10-2012 06:12 AM

had $7.79 in points for free, paid 4.33 :)

IntelboyWY 12-10-2012 06:17 AM

Because it is a Craftsman

I pulled the trigger because if my two boys (11 and 5) bust it I can get in the family truckster and get it replaced no questions. The link sent me to amazon and a voltmeter company I have not heard of. Craftsman, I know and trust.:nod:

Thanks OP. Just got it for $12.14 w/ free shipping (versus 20-30 minutes dealing with in-store pickup) and used ShopYourWay points to pay for it...so basically free :)

That's a better way to start my day than the good cup of coffee I'm working on :)

Molotov 12-10-2012 07:19 AM

actually worked for me by going through sears.com

jhopgood 12-10-2012 07:22 AM

Will the ac detector let me know which minibulb is out in my christmas lights without having to disconnect every one? Looking for a noncontact method...

i dont have a lot of experience with xmas lights but wouldn't you be able to tell which one is out just by looking at it?

Would work I guess if only one was out depending on the kind of line, but my guess is there must be more than one.

Imaninja 12-10-2012 08:00 AM

Thanks for posting this. One of the comments on sears says they spent $17 on black friday - this is cheaper and better than waiting in line on black friday. I couldn't get the 10% off for being a craftsman club member to work but I am buying it anyways.

Don't buy Christmas lights that are in series. There is no other way(that I know of) to tell which light is out without removing each light bulb. Buy lights that are in parallel and that will fix your problem.

bkdg100 12-10-2012 08:18 AM

had to switch to IE , was using chrome , but joining club never took . i noticed a box that had to be checked that did not appear with chrome ( and possibly my settings ) . when box was checked during log in, price adjusted to discount ( all this time i assumed i had joined ) . very strange , i can see why others thing they are joining club but it never takes. in 4 1

Worked just fine for me. Thanks OP!

jfretless 12-10-2012 09:30 AM

Keep a look out for your "Shop Your Way" points you might have in your Sears account. I purchased the SD deal on the Kenmore Steam Front Loaders a few weeks ago, and had enough point to get his down to $2.47 after tax.

I'll take that!

Thanks!

lol, don't ever call Sears unless you have low blood pressure or you are a really big fan of blood pressure spikes.

Even with 10% cash back and 20% off their gift cards I still rarely buy from them and ONLY if it is a ridiculous sale AND I manage to stack some coupons.. In this case, the multimeter I got free at Harbor Freight works just fine.

vitiligo 12-10-2012 12:30 PM

worked for me - thanks!

asuchemist 12-10-2012 02:57 PM

I own an Equus 3320 and the readings are all over the place. Not accurate at all.

I'm going to give the craftsman a try, plus it comes with the voltage detector which is a bonus.

peppermint 12-10-2012 05:10 PM

the blender was oos for shipping do got this with my points which are expiring today

duluthgeek 12-10-2012 06:09 PM

A few years ago they were offering the Craftsman 82314 Mini Digital Multimeter with Auto ranging, and a built-in Voltage Detector for about the same price. I wish I had bought several, a great meter.

noeffort 12-10-2012 06:32 PM

thanks op, repped - got one for the garage. Don't forget cashback, used *bates for 10% and discover card for another 5%.

firebolt 12-10-2012 06:51 PM

Was able to snatch one with my expiring $5 making it little more than $6 out of pocket. Its already shipped . Thanks OP

EvilBlackRifle 12-10-2012 09:11 PM

Is this a non contact volt detector as well? Like the Fluke model?

zhartpe 12-11-2012 10:31 AM

Thanks OP! Bought two one for me and one for my dad. 13.16 each after tax.

Picked mine up yesterday. Is it a FLUKE, no. But for price, it's a great deal. Great gift for any guy who has any bit of DIY in him.

You can use a tone generator and trace the tone from bulb to bulb until you lose it. The last bulb where you lose the tone is the bad one.

jdigger 12-12-2012 10:18 AM

Picked one up today. Very nice meter for the price! Good thing I had a spare 9 volt battery on hand since it doesn't come with one.
