Here's Your Quick Fix to Saving on Automotive Tools
If you do your own automotive work, you’re already saving money. There are other ways to save on car maintenance, like shopping smart for the automotive tools you need. By watching for sales, using promo codes, and earning Cash Back, your engine will be running smoothly on a dime in no time. Here are a few tips for getting the most mileage for your money.
Earn Cash Back at EbatesWhen you shop at any of the stores featured on Ebates, you’ll get Cash Back. Cash Back is money you get back just for shopping. A percentage of every eligible order you place at participating stores will be given back to you in the form of Cash Back. Watch your Ebates account balance grow the more you shop!
Check the Ebates pages for your favorite automotive stores to see what the current Cash Back rate is. Watch for special bonus days and earnings events where the amount of Cash Back earned per order is increased for limited amounts of time.
Buy Used Automotive ToolsHigh-quality automotive tools are really made to last, so buying used high-quality tools is a really easy way to save some money. Buying used tools can be especially wise when you buy something you won’t use very frequently. Check eBay for old automotive tools at really low prices.

Get discounts like 15% off your first order, or free shipping on your next order. If you create a free account with Pep Boys, you’ll also be kept in the loop about upcoming sales and promotions, so you can plan your shopping and save even more.
Shop During Sales EventsWatch and wait for big sales events at top automotive tool stores. Find Friends & Family sales, seasonal clearance events, springtime discounts so you can get your ride ready on a budget, and so much more. You won’t want to miss out on Motosport’s Black Friday sale or the Veteran’s Day sale at Tire Buyer, trust me.
Don’t overlook the weekly sales, either!
Shop Sale or Clearance SectionsBefore you shop the regularly priced merchandise, take a look in the sale and clearance sections to see if you can find what you’re looking for. I’m usually lucky and can find the part I’m looking for on sale without even having to shop the non-sale items. Maybe you’ll get lucky, too!
Store Credit Card PerksStores offer major incentives to encourage customers to open a credit card with them. These incentives range from a percentage off the first order placed with the new card to points earned per dollar spent. Using your store credit card can amplify your overall savings, especially over long periods of time, and if you’re placing expensive orders.
Automotive tools can get very expensive, especially when you start getting into the bigger and more specialized tools. Using your store credit card when ordering your automotive tools can ensure that you get the most rewards points or special cardholder discounts. If you don’t have a store credit card, check to see if it’s worth it to open a card just for that order. The initial discount and rewards program might be incentive enough.
