Craftsman 9inch 15amp angle grinder [sears.com]
$74.99 Free Shipping - NO store pickup!
Please note: This deal involves "ShopYourWay" points. SYW Points are only valid for purchases at Sears, Kmart or Sears Outlet stores. These have a very short expiration period. You should have in mind a purchase that you plan to make in the next few days. This is the same $50 back on $75 that has been running for weeks.
The only thing new about this deal is that they price of the 9 inch grinder was lowered from $111 to $74.99 since yesterday. The tool is one cent less than the $75 needed to get $50 back in points.You'll need a $1 tool filler.

. Both require pickup
$74.99 +0.99 + tax gets you the grinder, a pencil and $50 in points. The disadvantage with the basic deal is that the grinder will be shipped but not ship the pencil. You will have to go to pick it up. Other, more expensive fillers would be shipped free with the grinder.
Add-on #1 Get $15 more tools for $3
There's a coupon that makes the deal much better: $15 off $75. These are available in the Slickdeals coupon thread
. These trade for around $3.
Using this coupon you'll need to choose $90 in tools. The coupon will lower it to $75 and you'll still get the $50 back in points. Choose filler tools that are indicated as included in the $50 back promotion. There are many tools that can act as the $15 filler that will be shipped to you.
Add-on #2 Discounted gift card.
You can save 8-9% of the full $75+tax price by buying a discounted gift card on Raise.com.

and Sears will give you 3% back on your Raise purchase (as SYW points)
The discount on the cards Sears and Kmart and the cards available changes with time. The $100 KMart card I bought today was 5.8% off.
(some people have had trouble in the past trying to make a partial or mixed payment using GCs. Get a $100 to be safe. There will be $17.50 left on the card to be spent later)
Ad-on#3 Some points roll. You can both spend points and earn points.
If the tools you choose cost more than $75, you can pay the difference with points. Only the pre-tax amount over $75 can be paid with points.
Say you choose a $25.01 filler to make your total $100. You could include the coupon and $10 worth of SWY points in your (discounted giftcard) payment.

Again, SYW points are not the same as cash. They expire quickly and you need to spend them at Sears or KMart. Be sure you know what you're going to buy and that the price is what you were expecting to pay. Keep in mind that you can use another coupon when you use the points and that takes some of the sting out of prices that might otherwise seem high.
I included some math and a spreadsheet. There's trouble with it. Fix it for us if you care enough to.
