Both KMart and Amazon have some excellent socket sets on sale today. Get the Craftsman 118 pc. Dual Marked Mechanics Tool Set for $54.99 or the Stanley Black Chrome and Laser Etched 69-Piece Socket Set at Amazon for $49.99 after automatic $10 off in cart.
You know that any time a craftsman set drops to a price that is less than $0.50 per piece, it's a deal - even considering the filler bits and hexes. It has a total of 72 sockets while the Stanley set has no filler tools and clocks in at 63 sockets.
Both have lifetime warranties, but the convenience of taking a busted tool to your closest Sears (receipt or not) for an immediate replacement is a huge plus in my book.
In the end the choice is yours, and at these prices you won't be making a bad one.
