I want to order a truck bed tool box from Northern Tool.
it weighs 90 lb and costs $600.
If I could stack this deal with the 10% off from I would join, but I'm not sure it will work. Anyone have any experience with this store? Strange thing: when I go thru and put the tool box in the cart it shows $60 for delivery (ups i think), but if I go directly to Northern Tool, shipping is by yellow truck and costs $149.

they wouldn't offer this if they didn't think they'd make $$ on it.

so either it's a bad deal for the consumer, or they expect that very few consumers will utilize it for more than $39.99/1yr or $59.99/2yr cost. Maybe you'll buy more items since they become cheaper for you, even though they will make more profit.

I thought about that too, but really it could also be an incentive to buy from them rather than someone else, like granger or grizzly tools. I'm a gal, I don't buy lots of tools, but I do get into a project every once in a while. That said, I'm a true fatwalleter and can't stand to pay more than I absolutely have to. I was hoping someone else had gone through this and checked for ways to combine coupons etc... I think I may try it out since there is a 6 month guarantee.
