Over at Amazon, this Bosch 12V Max cordless drill and impact driver combo kit is on sale for just $99. That’s a buck less than a hundred for a drill, impact driver, charger, (2) compact Li-ion battery packs, and a carrying case.
Both are solid tools, and despite being quite long in the tooth, I’d highly recommend them. No, neither tool is brushless, but they’re capable and reliable.
Here’s my old review of the PS21 screwdriver and PS31 drill/driver. While I haven’t formally reviewed the PS41, I ranked it as the “best budget 12V impact driver” in my best cordless impact drivers roundup, which I’m currently in the midst of updating.
There are tradeoffs, with these being older tool designs, but I can’t think of anything that a refresh could offer that would improve upon these. Bosch has newer brushless models, but you’ll have to spend around $288 to get the brushless drill, impact driver, a charger, and 2 battery packs.

This is a great deal for anyone looking for 12V-class drill and impact driver sidekicks, or for homeowners looking for their first tools to tackle DIY projects.
It’s unclear as to how long this promo pricing will last. A search shows that some other Bosch dealers are also offering the deal. Its regular price, going by Acme Tool’s pricing, seems to be $169.
Update: As DaveVB points out in comments, this item is only for Prime Members. It seems that you can’t buy it from Amazon directly if you’re not a Prime member. If you’re not a Prime member, there’s the option for a free Amazon Prime trial. There’s also one 3rd party seller with a $106 price, and some other non-Amazon retailers who also have it for $99.
