Following are new tool deals for August 2021, and I plan to update this post throughout the month. If you discover other tool deals worth sharing, please let me know!
Fair warning: August is usually a slow month for tool promos.
(Also please be sure to provide feedback! I am hoping it works out better to have one post that’s added to and updated throughout the month than x-number of shorter posts.)
Home Depot Flash Sale 8/26/2021
Home Depot has a new tool deals of the day promo, featuring cordless combo kits (Milwaukee, Ridgid, Ryobi), cordless power tool and battery bundles (Ryobi, Milwaukee, Makita, Ridgid, Milwaukee power tool accessory sets and bundles, and several Milwaukee hand tool bundles and assortments.
The sale ends at 3am ET 8/27/2021, unless supplies sell out sooner.
Home Depot has Milwaukee’s metric and SAE 7pc wrench sets as special buys at $49 each. They’re describing these as Labor Day Savings with a September 6th, 2021 end date.
While not the lowest prices I’ve seen on these Milwaukee wrench sets, you do save $20 off each set’s $69 regular non-promo pricing.

Just a heads up. 3 piece cobra pliers are on sale at Amazon. Usually $120+ now $102.
KNIPEX – 9K 00 80 05 US Tools – 3 Piece Multi-Component Cobra Set (7, 10, & 12)
I don’t see them on sale all that often.
This does seem like a good price on Knipex Cobra pliers for users that want all 3 sizes.
At the time of this 8/4/21 update, buying the 3 separate prices would cost you $118.63 if you buy them separately. The 10″ are also promo-priced, as they’re regularly a little over $40. So if you’re looking to buy all 3 sizes, this deal at $102 saves you around $16-20 compared to buying them separately, and ~$18 over the regular 3pc set price.
Sale Price: $102
