This is a very highly rated pliers/wrench, and rarely goes on sale. It's been hovering around $50 for a long time, and just hit an all-time low per CCC. Since it's over $35, it qualifies for free shipping, even without Prime.

For a pro level deal keep an eye on these at Sears. They are rebranded Knipex, made in Germany and are excellent. You can find them rarely on sale but you get30% back in points and can use sears coupons to really drive these into a superb deal.

FYI the Sears rebranded pliers you posted are rebrands of the Knipex Cobras, which are push-button slip-activated pipe wrenches, like a better version of Channellocks. The wrench posted in this deal is the Knipex pliers wrench, which is a different tool for a different purpose.

The Cobras (i.e. the Craftsman rebranded pliers) have teeth and allow gripping things like pipes or corroded fasteners, but will mar whatever surface you put them on.

The pliers wrench in this post has flat, parallel contact surfaces, and is basically a better version of an adjustable wrench, so they won't damage whatever you put them on. However, due to having flat surfaces, they also won't help you much with things that are rounded.

The ones you posted are normally $50, I've seen them go on sale for $45, but you're right, combined with whatever surprise points or "cashback" points coupons Sears has going on, you can get them combined with other things from Sears for a pretty good deal.

I don't think those Craftsman are rebranded Knipex cobras. First they look different, the adjustemt teeth are different. From the descriptions, Cobras have 25 position adjustments, these have 11. These may be made by knipex, but they are not rebranded Cobras

Off-topic for OP, but they absolutely are rebranded Cobras. However, there are different generations of the Knipex Cobras, and the Craftsman rebranded ones are a generation older than the ones currently sold by Knipex. See discussion, particularly this comment [electriciantalk.com].

Hmm, per this discussion, the Knipex representative says they are knockoffs. Also, sounds like they are made from a cheaper, weaker metal alloy (the person in conversation who had them mentioned they broke) and are possible a knockoff of the older Cobras but the newer Cobras sound. Anyhow, with Craftsman new warranty since sale from Sears, glad I have a Knipex (I have Alligators (not Cobras) and some plier wrenches.

You have to read the rest of the thread to see that the Knipex rep which someone alluded to didn't know what they were talking about (this isn't unusual by the way, sales reps often don't know things like corporate licensing deals with other companies whose products they don't sell). Also, it'd be difficult for Craftsman to sell knockoffs like these, because Knipex owns the patents to the design and ratcheting mechanisms used in the Cobras in both Germany where the Craftsman are manufactured and in the US where they're sold.

Anyway, they're pretty well known among tool reviewers to be the same. Even though they're rebranded from Knipex, I suppose it is possible they use different metal, though that thread is the first I've heard anyone assert this. And the other person in the thread who owns the generation of Cobras these are rebranded from seems to confirm they're the same, so I'd be much more inclined to believe that if they are different, it's more likely that Knipex just made those changes in the updated Cobras, and not that they had some special formulation for Craftsman to use.

These are such a great tool. I had an alert set up for this, but still missed it by over 17 hours.

These are AWESOME!
I missed this deal but I was able to use a 20%-off coupon from eBay to buy a three piece set.
Did I mention these are AWESOME!

Smooth parallel jaws, will not mar brass fasteners or chrome finishes.
Tremendous closing force, great for straightening bent metal.
Jaws can open very wide.

I just wish they were not so expensive.
