I've tried some other screws and the Kreg screws are nice, but there are other options that work as well or better.

For something that's going to see load, I've found that SPAX #8 torx wafer head screws worked better than the Kreg screws at a similar price:
https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/fasteners-fastener-accessories/screws/wood-screws/spax-reg-8-x-2-star-drive-yellow-zinc-wafer-head-wood-screw-1-lb-box/4281020400504/p-1447285978505.htm

The other advantage to the SPAX screws is that the self-drilling design is a little more refined than the basic cutout on the Kreg screws.

I've also tried GRK screws, but the heads on those are slightly too big for the Kreg jig holes.

Not a stupid question at all. You can use any other appropriately sized wood screws that are flat under the head. Kreg also claims that their screws are self tapping which will help to limit splitting.

This is a great deal for this set. Kreg screws almost never go on sale.

Maybe a stupid question. Does a Kreg system only use Kreg screws? Can I use regular Philip head or flat screws with a Kreg?

Yes, just keep in mind that you will probably need a longer driver bit (like the one that comes with the kerg kits) so that you can actually get to the screw because of the angle.

Like jeff34270 said, you want to try to stay away from countersunk and look for buttonhead screws. Also, you want something the same diameter, am am not sure what Kerg screws are but a google search claims #7 shank diameter.

Bought this back on SD FP deal Dec 13,2017 for $1 less. If you were going to jump on this deal like me, you may want to check if you purchased this last year. I barely use them, but when I do its super handy to have.

It's a nice set but I found I only use half those sizes. Keep that in mind.
