Amazon doesn’t have quite the same selection of Craftsman tools on sale for Prime Day 2020 as I had expected, but the ones I found at least seem decent – if not good.
First up, the Craftsman V20 brushless impact driver kit is on sale for $89. This looks to be “new low pricing” rather than a Prime Day deal, but it seems like a good price nonetheless. This is a 1-battery kit.
Update: It looks like the price has been $89 for about two months; it might be a good idea to wait to see if we get better pricing for Black Friday 2020 or the holiday shopping season.

This Craftsman 102pc general purpose tool kit is currently priced at $85.
Lowe’s has the same kit for $99.
Update: Pricing history services show that this kit has been ~$85 for around two months, and so this isn’t actually special Prime Day deal pricing.
One of the few Craftsman tools that actually seems to be a real Prime Day deal is this 7.5A 1/2″ corded impact wrench.
Right now, it’s on sale for $65, but it looks to be a “lightning deal” that’s set to expire in a couple of hours.
Oh, here’s another one – this Craftsman 21″ gas-powered snow blower is currently on sale for $467.50 ($550 minus 15% at checkout).
Searching the Amazon Prime Day deals for “Craftsman” or “Craftsman tools” brings up a couple of Gearwrench deals that seem interesting:
Gearwrench 7pc Hook and Pick Set: Save 20%
Gearwrench 7pc Pliers Set: Save 20%
Update: One More Craftsman Tool Deal
Amazon has this Craftsman V20 cordless drill kit LED worklight bundle deal for $69.
I bought and reviewed this Craftsman cordless drill two years ago, and it was quite decent for the money. It’s certainly an entry-priced Craftsman drill, but not terrible. With this deal, you get the kit at Black Friday pricing, plus an LED worklight added to the bundle.
This is a good deal for anyone who needs a brand-name drill at low pricing. It’s capable, but don’t expect it to perform as well as cordless drills from Dewalt, Milwaukee, Makita or Craftsman’s brushless lineup, that cost several times more.
There’s a timer on this deal as well, with the sale pricing looking to expire at around 7:30pm ET on 10/13/2020.
Dear Amazon: Your Prime Day deal listings are a MESS! If the goal is for customers to dig through scores of deals to find the ones they’re interested in, mission accomplished. But please, some better filtering would be much appreciated!
The corded impact for $65 is a pretty good deal, though the Chervon-made Kobalt impact from Lowe’s is usually on sale around the holidays for $99, so it might be worth it for the higher torque, longer warranty, and the plastic case and included socket set.
the Walmart hypertough corded impact is a steal, I got mine for 38 bucks. If I didnt just get mine 6 months ago I would certainly look at this Craftsman which may share some lineage with the hypertough.
Someone did a tear down if the hypertough and it was the same as the porter cable.
I grabbed mine right quickduring a plumbing emergency when I needed to remove a hot water heater anode rod, the funny thing is when I watched youtube reviews over half the people who bought the thing had bought it to make the same plumbing repair. Since then I’ve used it to remove some tough bolts , changed tires, etc. If someone missed out on this deal and needs a corded impact check out the hypertough.

Not interested in the reborn Craftsman until they have a track record. I’d go with Ridgid over them, and more likely Bosch, Dewalt or Milwaukee.
But I have to say, you’ve been knocking it out of the park, Stuart! These posts have come four or five at a time, just hours apart. That’s some serious work. Thank you!
I’m looking at the Craftsman random orbital sander – any comments? Thanks in advance.
Corded or cordless? The corded version is pretty much identical to DeWalt’s corded version (3 amp 12,000 OPM), which is a pretty good thing. The cordless is a single speed brushed motor version of DeWalt’s cordless, which means it is not as battery efficient and lacks the variable speed dial.
Either are a solid performer with decent dust extraction when hooked up to a vacuum, even the bag does a pretty good job of gathering most of the dust.
I have the corded, good tool. Its obviously not a premium sander like festool but price demonstrates that. As good as any in the tier below premium grade.
