Craftsman has thrown down the gauntlet. OK, maybe more like a dish glove. Or a used latex work glove. Here’s the deal: if you can find “a better value at the same or lower price” with all the features of various Craftsman lawn mowers and tractors, they’ll “give it to you free.” Before you go diving for Google, here’s the fine print:
You’ll also find a few kicker requirements in the flyer, such as a “Die Hard battery” (so the mower you find has to be made by Sears) and a “free trip charge for in-home warranty service during the first year**.” What do the asterisks mean? “See sales associate for details.” This whole game reminds me a bit of the prizes Steve Martin offered as a carnie in The Jerk.
Oh yeah, you’ve only got until the 26th. And you can’t participate if you live in California. Unlucky you.
