Ahhh so you're the guy sears sets their MSRP for. I always wondered who thinks those inflated prices are real. I bought a near identical Husky brand one for under 200@ Home Depot. This is pretty much the standard price for these.

For a 53 inch? I've seen Husky 41 or 43 inch go under $200? I can careless about Craftsman, I personally like Husky better.

So I got mine for $253.91 with tax plus I get $37 back to make another purchase..... so $216.91 is a bad price? I can return it if that is the case.

What is the size of your Husky exactly? I would love to keep an eye out for yours.

Looks like the 53" husky is over $300, at least right now it is. So $250 - rewards seems like a good deal to me...

The 46" Husky has been on sale for $199 a few times over the last couple years, but I haven't seen their 52" anywhere close to $200. Perhaps yours was a one-off store clearance on the floor model or something.

Nice find. I think this is a solid deal. I'm not ready for it, but if Sears is still in business when I am and I can find this deal again I'll be in for sure.

A hole comment of the day. This is what Slickdeals is for.
Seems like a solid price for a light duty tool chest.

I'd avoid this unless you just want to store really, really light-duty stuff in the drawers and won't be using it often, even as a workbench.

The 30lb slides in this are incredibly thin and weak, and will not stand up to much weight or repeated opening/closing. The sheet metal for the whole thing is really thin, too.

The price may seem nice, but it just turns into a sheet metal paperweight when the slides and drawers are tweaked and the sides and back of the unit buckle as well.

Really any of the 'standard duty' Craftsman storage is to be avoided if you don't want to waste your money.

I've been researching tool chests for over a month now to get for my husband as a gift and I almost bit on this until I read the reviews and then checked it out in person.

This is not heavy duty and the drawers would not (and according to reviews, don't) hold heavy, metal tools well. I checked it out in Sears in person to verify and thus did not buy this for my DIY/budding motorhead hubby. If you apply pressure to the side sheet of the chest, the sheet metal easy wobbles in like if you were pressing into the side of teacher's school desk. The drawers are the same. Don't think you'll be putting wrenches in these things.

IMHO, Craftsman standard duty chests aren't the same quality as the Huskys I've seen around.

Good to read that you're doing the research legwork for yourself. 👍

I bought a Craftsman standard duty tower off a deal once.

Picked up in store and took it home, started assembly and felt the quality of the materials. I had gotten a really good price, but after a little thinking about it, I couldn't keep it. It was just too cheap.

I ended up getting an awesome Milwakee a couple weeks later. I love the soft close drawers.

I agree with you Catherine. Craftsman stuff are getting lower and lower while Husky products are getting sturdier and sturdier.
