Dear Milwaukee Tool,
Thank you for the 2 very nice free 25-foot tape measures that arrived yesterday! Sure, they’re not the premium tape measures, but free is free, and the “contractor” tapes are still quite good.
I thought I would have to email in about this, but they arrived quickly and without any added effort on my part. I know that you can add up to 5 redemptions per rebate, but I had to fill out the form twice since there’s only one invoice or receipt number per form.
And you accepted my (clear) smartphone photos of the receipts without issue. Great!
This really was a sweet arrangement – spend $50+ on Shockwave accessories and get a free 25-foot tape measure. I needed to buy some new Shockwave screwdriver bit sets, nutdrivers, and drill bits anyway, for my DIY tool kit editorial and giveaway project, and also for tool testing.
I do wish that there was an easier way to learn about the rebates. I only thought to check the same URL that one retailer linked to it last year. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to share the rebate page with a few friends.
I see that right now there are only rebates on Shockwave accessories and on Force Logic and press tool kits. These end October 31st. Ooh, does that mean new rebates for the holiday season? I’ll try to remember to check back in November. Last year’s Hole Dozer and Sawzall rebate was pretty sweet.
Let’s see. Spend $50+ on Shockwave accessories, get a free 25′ tape measure. $100+, get a free M12 starter kit and power source. $200+, get a free M12 impact driver kit.
I don’t think my next accessories stock-up will be for more than $100, but if it comes close I’ll pad it a little. Too bad I couldn’t do that this time, because my Shockwave purchases were made on separate days, with the first being prior to my rediscovery of the rebate. Ah well.
Oh, and if I might make a request – how about a Packout rebate, either as the qualifying purchase, or the free item? That’d sure be nice.
