Sears has a brand new program offering 20% Off Automotive Tools and Tool Sets for students in Vocational and Technical school. All you have to do is show a valid student ID and they will give you the discount. The 20% off discount can even be used on specialty tools, such as multimeters, OBD scanners, brake tools, etc. However I spoke with a Craftsman Representative about the program and 20% off will vary by store and location. Also the discount will only apply to regularly priced merchandise. It would be best to call and ask your local Sears store what tools they will give you under the program. Under the program you can also get 5% off sockets, wrenches, or auto specialty tools that are on sale. You can also get 10% any Craftsman branded tools and items that are regularly priced, including shelves, tool chests, power tools, air tools, etc. I'm sure students will find these discounts helpful. I called the Sears store I usually visit (Hunt Valley) and confirmed they are running the discount. You can find out more information on the Sears website. Be aware the discounts are only good until March 31st, 2011.
