Update by user Dec 04, 2015
Ok, so here is an update. After speaking with the supervisor of their online division I finally received my email yesterday (12/3/15).
I'm sure anyone who shops online knows the email just saying its ready for pickup. I went to the sears around me to grab it, signed in for pickup and waited my turn. I ended up waiting and waiting and waiting, which by this point im starting to get nervous again. About 40-45 min later I am told that the item is NOT IN STOCK!
Seriously!? This is the second time I drove down there, and it was not really there. I was offered one of those $5 coupons for my order taking over the 5 minute guarantee. The store manager there called me over, and said that she would ship it directly to my house.
Although I do appreciate them doing this it is not the point. The point is I now have over 3 hours of driving to sears, which is something like $70 in gas. This cost more than I paid for the auto ratchet itself. I told the manager that it was absolutely ridiculous all while trying not to get mad.
****She did eventually end up giving me some cash back, and is sending the ratchet for free****. The reason I am not marking this as resolved is because I am still angry about getting 2 emails saying my order was ready, and I still blew through a lot of gas and time just for a *** clearance item. After everything I've been through, below is an email I received today (12/4/15).

1-800-366-3028 5/1/14? I had ordered the ratchet in November of 2015. It's extremely bad, but at the same time kind of funny.
I know this review is long, but A LOT has happened. I am hoping this will help sway some decisions or make you reconsider shopping at Sears.

I ordered the Craftsman C3 ratchet kit from sears on sale. The reason I went to chat was the price in my cart changed from the prior day.
I asked if they would honor the day before's price, and they said they would not (of course). Either way I had points and all that to use so I ordered it anyway online. This person told me it was available TODAY (day I ordered it), and can be picked up once I received the email. I got my email, and drove an hour to pick up the kit.
The store then tells me the locking wrench is in stock, but the auto wrench is NOT! Since I wasted my time going there I contacted chat again. I had ordered the wrench because I needed it THAT DAY. My truck broke down, and I needed to get to a difficult part to fix it.
The auto wrench would have done this. The chat person told me there was nothing that could be done at all, and I will DEFINITELY get it on 12/1. So yet again I get incorrect info because surprisingly it is NOT here on 12/1. I am in customer service, and have always been held accountable for what I say to someone.
If we make a mistake then we own up to it and correct it! I decided to call today instead of chatting again, and this time I was told they would put an inquiry in to see when it will be available. I asked to speak to a supervisor, and after telling her the issues with people telling me incorrect information all I got was sorry. The supervisor said that they CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR ME!
Wow, Sears can do absolutely nothing for me? They will not give me the item for a discount or free. They will not give me any store credit. They will not swap it out for another auto ratchet so I can get it today.
NOTHING! I have bought plenty from Sears, but tend to always have some issue. Nothing that kept me from going back though. THIS IS IT!!!!
Im done dealing with this S*** company. How can a company like this not be willing to do a single thing for me? They are losing my business (thousands already spent), and every person (friends or family) over a $35 dollar ratchet kit. Good move Sears.
A very prudent move on your part. Bravo!
I know that one person like me may not sway your decision to purchase from Sears, but hopefully it will help somebody.
I have never once asked to speak to a manager or write a bad review online. I do not like doing something like this because mistakes just happen
