Christmas is almost here, which means that Amazon and other retailers’ holiday discounts are nearly finished.
Today is the LAST DAY to get in on the Dewalt $25 off $100+ promo, as well as Porter Cable, Black & Decker, and Stanley promos.
The Dewalt “buy a starter set, get 2 FREE bonus tools promo” ends on 12/31/16.
Bosch: $25 off $100+, thru 12/23/16 (Many more items are eligible than previously!)
Dewalt: $25 off $100+ Select Tools, thru 12/22/16
Hitachi: $25 off $100+ Orders, thru 12/31/16
Makita: Save $25 off $100+ Orders, thru 12/31/16
Neiko: Save 20% or More, thru 12/24/16 (I’ve never tried any Neiko tools, have you?)
Acme Tools offers a lot of the same promos, but there are a few more, such as $20 off $100+ Milwaukee Tools, which also ends today.
There are also special brand-specific promos:
Update: The Winner has been selected, and the prize ordered! It is said to arrive on Saturday, 12/24/2016! The name will be announced sometime after that to maintain the surprise. Sorry!
Update 2: Congrats to Dan W!
If you already checked out our Dewalt FlexVolt Giveaway, you might have seen where I said there would be side giveaways depending on how many entries there were.
Minor Update: That $700 limit on the FlexVolt giveaway would be extended to $800 if the FlexVolt miter saw increases from its current Amazon price of $699.
Today, we’re giving away a Dewalt DCK283D2 20V Max brushless drill and impact driver kit to one lucky winner!
The Prize: A Dewalt BRUSHLESS compact drill and impact driver combo kit. It comes with a brushless drill, impact driver, charger, carrying bag, and (2) 2.0Ah Li-ion battery packs.
Why? The drill, DCD791, is our 2016 pick for BEST COMPACT CORDLESS DRILL, and the impact driver, DCF887, is in the top running for BEST CORDLESS IMPACT DRIVER. The single-speed model was our editor’s choice. I’m still working on the 2017 updates, but both models are very strong contenders, and among my favorite drills and impact drivers to use.
The DCF887 is a nice upgrade to the DCF886, featuring 3 speed and torque modes.
The brushless motors mean greater efficiency, which translates to more power and long runtime.
Prize Fulfillment: I like these tools so much that ToolGuyd will be buying the prize. I’ve been tempted to buy a kit for myself, but my personal Bosch combo kit is still going strong.
I will be ordering the tools from Amazon, but if they should sell out before the end of the day, I’ll order them from another authorized dealer.
I plan to order the prize TODAY, partly to get the prize out as a holiday surprise to the winner, partly because if I’m paying for the prize out of pocket, why not do so when the $25 savings are still in effect?!
How to Enter: Comment in reply to this post, telling us about whether you took advantage of any holiday promo deals and what you bought (if anything), and then tell me what you’d do with this 20V Max brushless combo kit.
You MUST also then fill out this form with your shipping address:
Why? Because I hope to order the combo kit and get it delivered to the winner before Christmas. If that’s not possible, they’ll still get it early next week.
Winner Selection: The ONE winner will be selected at random.
Rules: The entry period ends at 10pm ET, today, 12/22/2016. The winning comment will be selected, and then I will grab your shipping address info from the form, linked above.
If the shipping information is incomplete, I will select another winner.
The address and shipping information entered into the form will only be used for the purpose of this giveaway. I plan to delete all entries afterwards.
