Over at Amazon, the price on this Bosch 12V Max cordless drill kit has been dropped down to $99. Thank you to Brian for the heads-up!
It is unclear why Bosch is slashing the prices on some of their 12V Max brushless drill and driver kits. Their 12V Max FlexiClick kit is also still on sale.
Why are their tools so much cheaper all of a sudden? $99 is the lowest price ever for this Bosch GSR12V-300B22 cordless drill kit. Why?
Bosch had very weak Holiday 2020 promotions, so maybe they’re trying to make up for it now?
Normally I like price drops and sales, but the timing and nature of these unannounced promos is a bit unusual. I can’t tell you if this is a good tool, but it’s a great price.
Sale Price: $99
Bosch never officially announced the drill that’s on sale here, model GSR12V-300, and our multiple requests for insights or a test sample were ignored, and so I can’t tell you how it compares to anything.
I’ve lost favor for Bosch 12V Max cordless power tools, but this seems like a good deal. Personally, I’d pick the Dewalt 12V Max Xtreme cordless drill over this one. Dewalt’s slide-pack ergonomics are much better than Bosch’s, which places the stem-style battery in the handle grip.
For power? Milwaukee M12 Fuel.
I still use some Bosch 12V Max cordless power tools on occasion, mainly some of the tools I ordered from Europe since they’re not available in the USA, but other brands’ drills and drivers are a better fit for my needs.
The Dewalt kit is also $99 right now, but this is also its semi-regular price. The Bosch deal has a greater sense of urgency and uncertainty, as its $99 price might just be temporary.
