I think someone at sears did a typo or can't read and it should be 72.41 and not 12.41

Even the generic ones on ebay cost twice that.

I also have noticed that many parts on the Sears site are the same as my price or cheaper than i get them at Servall. I don't order from them because of the shipping cost and shipping time. Its not really a problem because I sell the  my parts at retail price and nobody seems to care. Except for those customers who get on the
web and diagnose the problem and the parts before you get there.

I noticed a $58.20 price difference on a timer from Sears compared to all the other parts house and told the customer to get it from them. Got 3 referrals in a week.

     Sears does have some cheap parts.   However,  I agree.  I charge customer retail price and I still make money buying at my local parts place.   I like going to parts place,  picking up part, and having it same or next day.   If I have a problem,   I bring it back and get another one.   I've had customers who make a stink order the part themselves and then I'll put it on.    I tell them the problem with sears or other online sights,  you have no idea when part will arrive and some take a long time.   That's why I don't order from them.   
     However...........what I do is when they ask me how much to put it on,  I tell them.   Then I also inform them that if they do want to order part themselves,  I'll put it on but no warranty.     If part goes bad within 3 months,  then I will charge them another service call and labor to remove and install new part.   They usually have me get the part.
