If BS says $ 49 in your store, that's what it will be at the register.

Don't know why online and in their app it is higher than the BS price.

BS inventory might be off as usual but pricing is spot on.

No hassle lifetime warranty exchange program


Brickseek link ..... Kobalt 129 Pc [brickseek.com]

Lowe's link ......... Kobalt 129 Pc [lowes.com]

Drove an hour one way and scored 5 @ $ 49

Good luck

I agree.

I need to vent. When I ordered the 109 set at a Lowes, they cancelled my order due to no stock. I had used a gift card.

Since they cancelled my order due to OOS, they have to mail me my gift card back. The thing is, it finally came in the mail today but it's not a gift card but a Merchandise credit that has to be used in the store. This happened once before.

I called the 800 # and told them since I used a gift card, I'd like a gift card back so that I can use online. They won't do it. I told them this makes no sense and isn't right for the customer since you are replacing their card with one that can't be used online...but nothing they will do and they don't care.

I said how about Lowes fixes their inventory issue then maybe customers won't have to have their orders cancelled all the time. This makes it most difficult when we use a gift card and have to wait a week or so to get a merchandise card in return.

YMMV but one time I ordered a vanity and called to cancel the order. they did issue me a normal GC through the mail. Not sure what the official policy is.

yes its a pain in the A but i always find that you can use the merch credit for things like plants.

The 109 has more home tools like claw hammer, level, measuring tape. Also has some pliers.

This one has spark plug socket and 1/4" drive ratchet and sockets, more of a car-oriented set. No pliers though.

Wow, that's a D move. Try escalating to corporate to see if they offer resolution?
Stuff like this is why I think Lowe's is going to get swallowed up by HD, which has a much better CS and cheaper prices.

They've been doing it like that for a couple years now.
It does seem like it should be illegal: Not refunding you money in the original form of payment. Especially when the order is cancelled, since it's not even a return.
I was having problems even getting the refunds sent half the time and had to follow up with many calls and emails..
Now I don't place an order with a gift card unless I'm positive a store has it in stock. If the online inventory is low, I'll drive to the store with my coupon code and GC, verify it's there first, then place the order.
