This price matches a popular Frontpage Deal from November, 2018 and June, 2019

with a $1 filler and $20 coupon this set can be had for $80, or a 10% for $91

there is another popular deal for the craftsman set. i find this set to be better due to the
pro 90 ratchets included in this set. 90 tooth vs 72 tooth for the craftsman.

My experience with coupons is they always worked, on all items, even online. However, this has changed recently, majority of coupons are in store use only unless otherwise stated, they also can't be applied on sale items. Coupon can be scanned but no discount will show, however, if another item that's not on sale scanned you get the discount. Just keep that in mind. Someone mentioned using self checkout, good idea but I have not tried it yet, I'm will try it, thanks.

Yes that too. Add another item that is not clearance !! Their computers aren't that smart to differentiate. If total is above 100$ it has always worked for me .

I don't know much about different chase cards but my chase rapid rewards card also has the 15% cash back up to 20$

Edit : if using the self checkout it expects a coupon to be dropped in the bin. You can either use a card to put halfway in the slot ( don't drop it in on accident) or go prepared with a small piece of paper to drop in. If not a worker will need to come over and you will need to explain here is the coupon on my phone . It wants one in the slot etc etc etc the workers at my store just take their badge and enter it halfway in to the coupon slot

go to self checkout, i have never had a coupon not work one sale/clearance items. i just used a lesser known coupon for $30 of a clearance hedge trimmer. paid $23 for it after the coupon. the one time i was told i couldn't use it was going through a cashier who said i couldn't. i asked them to scan it and see if it would work. she scanned it and it worked. she let me use it. also, if you have had problems you can always go to the lumber checkout, at least at my store they are always the same cashiers and never question anything related to other products/coupons
Things have changed recently -- scanned on same screen that it worked before and no dice for sale items about 1-2 weeks ago...

Ashamed as this used to make Lowes my go to store... Now it is back to almost a toss up...

I bought this set at the same price + a 10% off coupon. The tools are all great but the box itself leaves much to be desired. It's a series of plastic pieces that easily pop out of place - when one pops out the entire structure of the box is compromised. It works fine stationary if you're mindful about opening and closing without popping a corner out. Works for my needs and keeps the tools organized, but others may require a sturdier tool box.

Yes The one that I bought last year, the box is cheaply made and the plastic latches were junk. I think this one with the updated Mateo latches should be better.

+1. Tools have worked great for me, but the case is falling apart after light use.

This is a good set of tools. I bought two on sale about 3 months back for $129 at my local store. I put in my truck tool box and rear of my SUV and have used them many times. As others have said, the box is not great. On one, the tiny plastic nubs that the drawers rest on bend easy and the drawers don't stay put(no problems with the other one). I do like the empty drawer on the bottom for my pliers and crescent wrenches though. Even at $129, I would buy this again if I needed another one.

They used to have a Kobalt set that came with SAE and Metric sockets, screw-bits and driver two sets of pliers, hex wrenches, a crescent wrench, etc. It is perfect to throw in your trunk for emergencies. I snagged one on clearance a few years ago for about $50. Best money I ever spent. Add some wire, duct tape, tire plug kit and air pump and you're good to go.
Unless you drive a 1978 Ford Pinto or something which frequently breaks when you drive it, why would you need to carry around tools with you? I can see how an air pump might be useful, but a whole tool box is a little overkill. The car usually already has everything needed to change a tire.

It's only overkill when you don't need it. When you're driving long-distance through a rural area late at night (which is normally when I throw it in the trunk), it could be a lifesaver.

I just needed a separate portable set for junkyard runs or when I don't feel like digging into my tool box so I grabbed this one instead.

138pc 60% off.

The ratchet is of poor quality. The mechanism would not hold its position while in use. While tighten or loosen, it would locked up due to the swing switch on the head moving. This happens on all the handles. Would not recommend.
