The Dewalt DWS780 12″ sliding miter saw is on sale at Amazon, for $499. This is their flagship model, normally priced at $599.
Sorry, it’s not eligible for Acme Tools’ 11% off coupon promo that ends today (11/13/18).
Also check out the DWS779, a “special buy” at $349. There’s also a new DWS779 and roller stand combo deal at extremely good pricing. I can’t tell you which to go for, but I can tell you that a lot of people are happy with the DWS779, and others want the LED shadow cutline system of the DWS780. If you wait, there will likely be a “buy the saw at full price, get a free folding miter saw stand” promo, or similar.
I’ve been looking for deals on the complete FlexVolt miter saw kit, but haven’t come across anything worth mentioning yet.
Bosch’s DDN181-02 18V cordless drill kit dropped in price to $89. It’s a very compact drill, and it comes with two batteries. It’s a good buy that might check off some of your compact cordless drill needs or wants.
There’s also a newer and more powerful Bosch 18V cordless drill kit, on sale for $99.
If you have a $100 budget, be sure to check out the other holiday season $99 drill kits here.
In a rare occurrence, Makita’s 18V sub-compact brushless drill and impact driver kit is on sale for $199.
“I’m on a limited budget but I need a good portable table saw. What holiday deals would you recommend?”
That’s easy – the Dewalt DW745 is a tried and true performer.
There’s a chance it might be discounted further, or there will be promos on the next higher-up model. You can wait on this deal and see what happens, or take advantage of the already-low seasonal pricing and get a head-start on your holiday projects.
There are going to be a couple of wet/dry vacuum deals in the next few weeks. This one is on a Shop-Vac 5-gallon 4.5 peak HP stainless steel model, with 1.25″ accessories, 7-foot hose, and rear blower port.
It’s priced at $52. Most of the upcoming deals will be on larger 12-gallon or 16-gallon models. While not a HOT deal, this vac was $65 for a few months prior to the start of the month. If it’s exactly what you need, you’re saving $13.
P.S. The Dewalt 5.0Ah 2-pack and charger bundle is back, but at full pricing. When you look at the availability, it says it’ll be in stock November 21st, 2018. So… Black Friday deal? That would explain the super-low pricing we saw earlier in the month – maybe it was a Black Friday 2018 deal or other such promo that was activated too early. So, it’s not on sale anymore now, but it might be again soon. What do you think?
Please keep the requests coming! I’ll keep posting more tool deals I think you’ll be interested in, but if you have specific requests, I’ll add them to my active search.
