Returning tools to Lowes...

Hey guys, I have a quick question for you... I recently started a new tool collection. I purchased a Craftsman tool box, and a bunch of tools from lowes Kobalt line with lifetime warranty. Anyway, I recently got a school discount offer on Matco and Snap On tools. So I sit here with all these Kobalt tools. 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 72 tooth ratchets, socket sets 6 pt and 12 pt in all three sizes, wrench sets in metric and sae. Well I decided to go with the better quality tools for my collection and to upgrade to a bigger tool box, because I'm already running out of room.

My question, will lowes simply return these tools? Or could I atleast do a swap out for a floor jack and jack stands that I need? I have reciepts in folder for everything, only problem with them is I broke their package a little bit to fit them in the tool box drawers, because I liked the kobalt socket organizers because their color coated in blue and red. The tools have never once been used. Anyone that knows if they will return these or exchange them for something else in the store?

Usually they will. Take your receipts for sure and original packaging if you still have it. Should refund it back to your card. At the very least you would get an instore credit.

Appreciate it. I might just sell the box and tools as one with the receipts and mark a little money off it, that way I can just sell and go purchase what I need. I mean everything is brand new, never used. I started building a new setup for the new garage, and decided to go a differn't route since I get student discounts. If I can find someone in Tx, to purchase them, I might just let them go.

Well I got a discount through Matco's student Or Snap On's excellence program. I'm still debating. Leaning more towards Matco due to price. I like both of their design, they both have the life time warranty, nice designs, but the Matco is cheaper.

I can live with any of their tools, but I have to say Snap on wrenches and ratchets are really the best things ever. Anything else works great for me.

Keep them. Never know when you'll need extras.

Or even keep them in the car with you so you have some tools at all times just in case.

snap on is the best IMO but if your going for cost matco is great too. sounds like you're going for a nice setup. i'm simply too poor for much of it.
