The jig has been that price for awhile now. Note it doesn't come with the drill bit.

Mini jig kit w/ drill bit is around $25

Do you need the kit? Or is this for those who have the kit and need a spare?

This is a good deal for anyone who already has a Kreg jig kit and wants a backup jig. For everybody else, you're going to need a stepped drill bit and collar to use this thing properly. (Here's an example for $6.50).

Just the jig without a drill bit has been $11 for a long time if you look on CC. If you don't have any kreg jigs I would get the kit with a drill bit.

I didn't bother look up the price history on CCC before posting and didn't find any old post for it. Regardless, it's a worthy purchase IMHO :)

For occasional use, any clamps will do. If you're going to be using this regularly, I agree the Kreg-branded clamps are very nice... But if you're using this regularly you should probably be looking at one of the higher-end jig kits (R3, K4, etc).

Snagged one! Why not. In the example youtube video though, why didn't he just screw the corners together as you would normally from the outside? Is it because of the thinness of the wood in this case?

It's because the end grain of wood is a very weak method of joinery. Joinery through side grain is much stronger.

Also in many applications you can hide the screwed location via a pocket hole vs through the face side of the wood.

You need a stepped bit and stopper to do pocket holes with this mini jig. This is pretty close to regular price at Busy Bee Tools.

That's why the OP posted a link to that also:
