Power tools are very expensive. When said and done, all the tools can add up to be a big expense. So when buying a power tool you want to make sure you are getting the most for your money. Always know who you are buying a power tool from. Make sure they are reputable. If you buy it through a store or a classified ad or online auction, make sure they have good feedback. If you can find a tool cheaper than other places you have checked, take a closer look and ask yourself, “Why is this power tool cheaper at this place?” When you compare power tools from one place to another, you need to look at some important aspects, such as corded vs. cordless, amps and horsepower, return policies and more.
If you are going to buy a Craftsman power tool you will pretty much have to go through Sears unless you buy a used power tool. Don’t just go to the store to buy craftsman power tools. Sometimes online they have great deals they do not have in the stores. Another good idea is to sign up for their Craftsman Club. They send good coupons, but sometimes they send a little too much, or items not related to power tools. Either way, I have received some very good coupons in the mail. Usually they have 10% off as a member, plus you get excusive discounts on certain tools.
