At first I thought it was too good to be true, but I entered it and it worked. Along the way I came across a link on Amazon.com titled "so you want to buy 1 tool and get 2 free", a guide written by the Amazon.com tools editor. The page has a variety of other deals where you can stack coupon codes and deals:

So if someone tells you that they'll bring you a load of firewood for free, then it has no value?
If someone offers to sell you a roll of silver quarters for face value, then it only has a value of $10?
Sometimes you can get more in value than you actually pay for something. I think that's close to being the definition of "a bargain".
I do realize that in buying tools such as these there is a strong likelihood that these are not top quality tools. But that doesn't mean that it cannot be a good value. I'll know more when I get the goods.
If someone sell me a roll of siver quarters for $10 then they have set the value at $10. It has nothing to do with market value, but value the seller has placed on it is $10. If I bring free wood then the value is $0. Now yes there are bargins, but I really hate when people like to overinflate the price of something with the knowledge that it will never sell at that price. WHat something is sold at is its value.
I have one question how much shipping cost is there on the tools and can I buy it off the self for the same 12 plus shipping? If you check in to this sometimes it not so much of a bargin because sometime you can buy the same amount of tools and quality, add a cheap bag from a discount store. Alot of times your just paying shipping for them. That means more money in there pockets so I say let Walmart pay shipping they ship in bulk thats buisness. If they don't have,or don't sell it (for instance reloading die) or it's really an antique. Then (ask yourself why are they selling antiques in bulk) I bought M/N 91/30 from Big 5 sports all the number don't match but I didn't buy it for a collectible I bought it for a cheap shooter to modify. My exspirence with antiques is you don't get them in bulk or from discount outlets. You find them cheap in garagesale and high in antique shops but if you have a certain use for the antique tools It might be worth the trouble of shipping it. If your looking for cheap tools check out garagesale and estate sale. I once picked up a whole collection of tools (some snapons,craftsman, and other quality tools)for very little cash. I ask the lady why she was selling so cheap she said she didn't want them there because they reminded her of her husband. So I gave her what chash had with me witch wasn't near enough for the tools.
the value of something is what i can sell it for, not what i paid for it, if I buy the tools for 12 dollars and sell them on ebay for 40 they were worth 40, if i buy a roll of silver quarters for 10 bucks and sell it for 70, then they were worth 70, value is not determined by what was put into something, but rather what can be gotten out of it
