Matco and Mac do too. Shop around. You'll probably find a like-quality unit for a lot less.

Our Snap-On guy is kind of hoity toity. I stopped buying from him a long time ago. The Mac people haven't had a salesman here for a couple of years and the Cornwell guy ignores us, so Matco gets all our business.

LOL! The Snap-On salesman we had was a little 'light-in-the-loafers' too! When you would hand him an old tool for return, it was like you handed him a dog turd. I wonder where they recruit them?

...and then there's the interest they charge, to say nothing of going after new comers to buy $8000 boxes. What price status!

About ten years ago I worked at an oldsmobile dealer down in Louisiana. I had a craftsman tower a little over 6 feet tall, and a snap on box about 24"x8" that I used to take tools home in. I would always show the snap on guy how the snap on box was used as a stool to get in the top of my craftsman box. He always laughed about it, so he got my business once in a while.

Our Snap-On guy is terrific. He will replace anything he sells off his truck, no matter what brand. I buy a lot from him. Our Matco guy sucks, but is a little cheaper on some of the little stuff. I don't buy too many tools but end up spending at least $15/wk.

Check out Ebay, if you have a little extra time and are not in a hurry to get a tool you can get some very good deals on Snap-On and other name brand tools. I have bought several tools through Ebay, saved hundreds of dollars and have quality tools that are warrantied by a reputable manufacturer that should last a lifetime. As far as the dealer, if I cannot get satisfaction I go elsewhere, they do not stay around long without customers.

I find the best deals at swapmeets. Not car ones but reg. ones. I've saved lots & lots of $$ on Snap-On
