Only if you trust the shop & plan of using them enough for other things. Those deals are loss leaders to get people into the shop & if you aren't a good customer, (i.e. using other services), you may not get good service.
I don't know about anymore, but my parents use to get those Firestone deals on both their cars... but then the shop was a short walk from my dad's office, they use to get all their basic maintenance done there & tires with road hazard, so they knew & trusted the shop.
I had one of their cars at college for the summer & took it into a Firestone for an oil change, alignment & rotation. That shop claimed a couple of things were wrong with front suspension/steering. I called by dad, who called his Firestone shop, who told him the other shop was likely selling a load of bull & to ignore it & just bring the car in to them when it came back into town. Which we did & nothing wrong with the car.
