Well? I assume this is only for USA because instructables team are only giving away Sears gift cards. And Sears are only found in USA...?

The Craftsman Tools contests. The prizes are gift certificates/vouchers for Sears (Craftsman is a Sears brand). I was a bit disappointed when I saw that -- I was expecting the prize to actually be tools (but then the shipping costs would be horrendous :-/).

Ach, that's still not a help to those of us outside the US, since I just checked the Sears site, and they only deliver to the US. If you're in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam or the US Virgin Islands then you're stuck with surface mail to boot.

I still say find a US citizen you trust to enter for you and mail you the cards. I would do it, but can't...stupid fine print...

There's no point in having the cards, because the stuff I spend them on can only be delivered to the US. If a US citizen were then to mail them outside the US, the postage costs would probably be higher than the value of the bought items. (Dagnabbit)

Not a real problem if you buy the cordless models - it's just a different wall-wart.

Get yourself on holiday, deliver to a hotel and pass it as hand luggage! Note: The above is highly improbable to work, as well as being grossly impractical and expensive.

Excuse me, sir, would you care to explain this cordless powersaw in your hand luggage? And the nail gun?

They are in league with the Skunk-family. We are afraid that Skooly/war materials will make it into the hands of British Pensioners!

Sears will ship worldwide, I think it's to do with legal issues and an agreement with the sponsors that they can't accept international entries.

I checked the Sears website - they only ship to the US. They'll accept money from elsewhere, but only ship to the US.
