I just heard from my Acme Tools contact:
Previously the Bosch GCM12SD and CM10GD miter saws were excluded from our Cyber Monday promotion but they were just released and will be included in the 20% Off promotion around 2:30 CST today. The 20% will not combine with the 11% discount we are running on all Bosch products until the middle of December.
The GCM12SD will be $519.20 and the CM10GD will be $479.20.
Update: This promo has expired, but the 11% NOEXCLUSIONS coupon still works.

And the 10-inch:
Which to buy? If you’ve been on the fence about these saws, and know you want one but don’t know which size to buy, I’d say maybe consider the 12″ over the 10″.
The 12″ seems to be far more popular, going by Amazon user review numbers.
I have an older 10″ test sample, and it’s not at all portable. Its size and weight makes it difficult to move, especially up or down stairs. I’d imagine that the 12″ isn’t that much larger or heavier.
I had requested the 10″ sample when it first came out. I hadn’t tested the 12″, and thought the 10″ would be more manageable, but in reality I don’t think I see see much benefits. Giving up a little extra capacity of the 12″ doesn’t seem to give you much in return. Sometime in 2018, I hope to do a comparison if I can get my hands on a loaner. I’ve been a little sour on the 10″, and think that seeing and using the 12″ and 10″ side by side will help with perspective.
