I love tool deals – they let me stretch a dollar and get what I need or want at lower pricing. I also love reporting on tool deals, because I know what it’s like to be on a tight tool and equipment budget.
The holiday season tends to numb me a little bit – I can only report on so many good deals in a ~4-6 week span before anything short of “wow that’s a GREAT bargain” sparks any excitement in me.
Some of these deals here are GREAT deals.
For example, the new Milwaukee M12 oscillating multi-tool is $149 for the bare tool or $219 for the 1-battery kit. The bare tool right now ships with a free battery via select dealers – Tool Nut has this and with free shipping.
With this Home Depot deal of the day, they have the new M12 Fuel oscillating multi-tool in two special bundles, one for $219 and the other for $239. The $219 bundle gives you a Bluetooth radio – yes the new one – and (2) 3Ah batteries for just $70 more than the bare tool. The $239 bundle gives you (2) 3Ah batteries and an M12 Fuel (brushless) Hackzall reciprocating saw for just $90 more than the bare tool M12 OMT.
If you already have an M12 battery charger, or M18/M12 multi-voltage charger, this is a fantastic deal!
And the sale is full of other such hot deals just like this one.
Deals on the Milwaukee M12 Fuel stubby impact wrenches and M12 Fuel brushless ratchets are still hard to come by, but here they are, in special money-saving bundles.
The 2557-20 ratchet, for instance, is $179 by itself. Here, it’s bundled with a battery for $149.
Home Depot has specials on M12 cordless plumbing tools on occasion, but here’s the rare deal that gives you bundle discounts on hand tools, namely their aluminum pipe wrenches.
If you’ve been meaning to buy into Milwaukee’s RedLithium USB personal lighting products, why not snag a bundle and get an extra rechargeable battery?
Does anyone need a… V18 Li-ion battery pack? I’d say that 2008 called, and said it’s time you considered upgrading your tools, but if you’re still using V18 tools in 2020, I have to ask – why? Maybe there’s a good reason.
Not all of these are HOT deals. A Milwaukee M18 3Ah battery for $85? Pass. I remember when they were 2 for $99. Now, you can buy a 2-pack of M18 High Output 3Ah batteries for $99.
Deals end at 3am ET 11/12/2020 unless supplies sell out sooner.
Did any of these deals make their way to your online shopping car?
Dear Newsletter Subscribers
As you might have noticed, you will sometimes receive a second email after the usual 11am ET distribution. This deal of the day post was published after the cut-off for that mailing, and so based on user requests, I enabled a manual push for posts like this one, so that it hits your email inbox same-day rather than tomorrow after the deal expires.
With the holiday season, there are bound to be more instances like this, where I learn and post about limited time deals of the day after the email cut-off. I strive to publish these types of emails before the 11am cut-off but it isn’t always possible.
If you are happy with the way things have been, great! And if not, please let me know – I could potentially move the email cut-off to later in the day, such as 2pm ET. The hesitation here is that some limited-quantity deals might sell out before that time. Thus, it seems a second email later in the day – when necessary – is the best compromise.
I am open to any suggestions or requests you might have!
