Lowes Kobalt 300 piece mechanics tool set $149.98

Kobalt mechanics tool set is on sale for 149.99 until December 24th. Recent normal sale price for the same item has been 199.99.

Alternatively harbor freight has their 301 piece mechanics tool set on sale for 159.99 which is pretty routine. However they have a promotion until 12/24 which grants 20% off the normal 179.99 asking price which should drop the total to about 143.99 (I don't think it will stack on the 159.99 price, but it works out cheaper)

20% off coupon is listed on their home page. It does not seem to be active just yet (PST timezone?)


Sorry I can't edit the title to say Lowe's instead of harbor freight...

Does the Lowes set contain everything that the harbor freight one has?

Says no case on the Lowes website

Do you expect to see them drop in the beginning of January?

By "Not the standard" do you mean it's a price point kit and not the typical kobalt sockets?

The harbor freight set used to be good 90 tooth ratchets, I haven't heard that it isn't still. I'd be hesitant on the lowes one based on the reviews and weak description on the site.

looks like lowes is too, there's "manual" you can download, says 90T for the ratchets.

I decided to hold off. I looked in person and the Lowe's set doesn't have hex sockets that I would love to have for my motorcycle. Harbor freight does, and it seems to have better tool options in general along with the case.

Harbor freight had it on sale for 143 after taxes which is the cheapest I've seen it in years... But I went to the store literally the next morning after posting this and it was back up to 159.99.

Guess it must have been a price mistake. (Their coupons still show 179.99 starting price but the actual product only comes up at 199.99)

I'll keep waiting. I'll pull the trigger on Lowe's if it actually goes to 99 as the other poster said. That would be a great deal.

Not sure why the -3 score tho? Because of the mislabeling? The harbor freight temporary price mistake?
