Fairly regularly, I receive emails asking if I know when a delayed product will be released here in the USA. I haven’t been counting, but readers have been asking about Bosch’s 12V Max cordless jig saw, model JS120, more than most if not all other tools I can remember being emailed about.
Bosch JS120BN 12V Max cordless jig saw came out overseas 2 years ago, and its deployment in the USA hasn’t been very quick.
My test sample arrived a few weeks ago, and I have watched this jig saw pop in and out stock since then.
Well, it’s here, and it looks to be eligible for Bosch’s $25 off $100+ holiday promo, at least effectively and for the time being. It’s $119 before discount, and $94 after.
If you want to make the most of this Bosch promo to stock up on 12V Max tools, here are some ideas to go along with your JS120 purchase:
- 12V Max battery and L-Boxx starter kit (the L-Boxx fits the included tray)
- Bosch jig saw blades (these are all I’ll ever use)
- Bosch 12V Max LED worklight (maybe bundle these with the starter set?)
Some of these items, like the jig saw, are marked as not eligible, but also have conflicting deal info boxes and they also seem to be eligible for the deal all the way to checkout, where the discount is currently being applied. It doesn’t hurt to give it a try.
This is a handy little jig saw, and although I’m not far along enough in the review to confidently recommend it or not, I think that my feelings are quickly approaching “yes, definitely buy this, it’s awesome.”

This is a bare tool product, and so you’ll need a battery and charger.
Note: The image above is from Bosch’s European version of this saw which came out 2 years ago. As far as I’ve seen, the USA version is identical.
