    I plan on picking up a new multimeter this weekend. I had this same one for about two years and it died, not sure why, thought my battery was dead but I replaced it and it was still not working. Now I know it's free with any purchase it will be easy to pick one up this weekend.

    Where do you find the $99 coupon? Think I'll wait till my motor blows itself up cause getting a preddy means I gotta get other tools too, like a welder, and there's nothing cheap on CL right now.

    I've got 8 or 10 meters so I got a flashlight, 3 of the meters I own are professional quality and I already have 3 from HF.

    Yup... I got 3 or 4 of those meters at the shop, some of them still in their original packaging unopened, they work well and they are reliable so I keep one on my tool kart, one in my box, another in my "electrical" drawer at my inspection table, and the others still packaged up hanging on one of my pegboards where I keep unopened supplies.
    I've got most these meters for free with other purchases and I never turn down freebies... if you don't have one of these meters, they are definitely worth picking up... especially if you can get it free.

    I was wrong I have 4 HF meters, I forgot about the one in my wife's car. You can tell by the picture I go to HF a lot.

    I went to HF yesterday and got the battery charger that was on sale for $5, a free multimeter, and a new grinding wheel for my angle grinder for $2.

    I have a 3$ multimeter and it registers 12.2v on my m/c battery. My snapon/bluepoint dvm reads 12.55v. After a full 24 hours charge I'll trust my blue point, it saved me from buying a new battery.

    The low cost meter is not a precise instrument but is OK for general use, like low voltage stuff or to check for the presence of voltage or checking continuity.
