Thread Details

I just ordered a set of Kumho Ecsta 4X tires (in 205/55R16 but similar deals are available on other sizes). After the price match, coupon, and rebate, my price per tire (before installation) was $63.50. Mounted and balanced, including valve stems and disposal from Sears, my total was $325.92 (after rebate and not including local sales tax) as opposed to their normal price of $555.76 including those services.

1. Price match: Sears only price matches shipped tire prices, but discounttiredirect.com has these tires for $91 shipped to my location. Tirerack.com may be cheaper for shipping to your location, but they were slightly more to mine.
2. Coupon: Use the coupon code "FUNRIDE" for $60 off automotive purchases over $350 coupon.
3. Rebate: Kumho is currently offering a $50 rebate, and other manufacturers are offering promotions as well.

Even including the extra sales tax that I paid buying everything from Sears instead of online, this was a noticeably better deal including mounting/balancing, valve stems, and disposal. Applying the FUNRIDE coupon after the price match made it a solid deal, and the rebate on top of everything makes it pretty slick IMO.

This was done over the phone using the Click to Talk feature on their site.

You just got it. The coupon code is "FUNRIDE", it's for $60 off an automotive purchase of $350 or more at Sears.

This would make the Goodyear Eagle GTs that someone posted earlier better, but where is the click to talk button on the site?

*EDIT
It's on the Customer Service page, but they were worthless and couldn't help me at all.
They told me to call the Automotive Dept. for price matching?? Weird.

When you're viewing any of the tires, you there's an orange box labeled "Order Now By" and in the box there's a "Click to talk" link.

I don't know if this will stack with the code that I posted, but their price matching apparently does. In my case, I got them to knock off $30 per tire (not just $30 for the pair) before applying the additional $60 off of my order.

I had the click to chat option earlier this morning. Now I can't get it to show up on any tire. I'll try back later. maybe their chat is down.

Just tell them about the promotion. The lady that I talked to applied it before I even asked about the extra discount.

Is the price match to the exact tire or is there a fudge factor? Definitely going to do this through an urlhasbeenblocked for a slight additional bonus.

Thanks OP!

I'd assume that would be at the discretion of whomever is doing the match. They didn't give me any run around though, just kept me on hold while they looked up the competing site and then matched it.

They wouldn't stack the FUNRIDE promo and price match. I had to pick one or the other. They amortize shipping from Tire Rack into their match price so for my tires it would have been a $5 per tire savings. I opted for the promo code and I have a $50 MIR. Not as good as I had hoped.. but better than a sharp stick in the eye.

Eh, cash at any Mexican tire shop that has access to new stock through a distributor is the way to go. Free alignments and rotations for life. Got a great set of Cooper CS4s this way. And, you never have to wait for work like at Sears, Costco, etc. After getting a cheap oil change at Sears recently, I decided it wasn't worth the frustration. If you live in L.A. or the Bay, I would highly, highly suggest researching this option. Pay cash and no national store can touch independent pricing. It's just a commodity like anything else. You get to help a small business and they get to sell a new set of high end tires that they don't usually get to sell.

I did get $18 in urlhasbeenblocked... covered the disposal fee and some of the stems.. nice find.
