Over at Amazon, they kicked off Black Friday 2020 pricing on this Bosch GLM165-10 laser distance measuring tool.
It’s currently on sale for $39, and this looks to be a fantastic deal!
Home Depot will also be featuring this deal for Black Friday, but the deal has not gone live on their website yet. Between the 3 Home Depot stores I checked this weekend, only 1 of them had this deal on the sales floor – the others might be waiting to put it out.
It seems that Amazon is still waiting for inventory, but you can order now. I’m seeing a delivery estimate of November 5th – 10th.
The Bosch GLM165-10 has a 165′ range and maintains accuracy to within ±1/16″. It features a backlit display and IP54 weather and dust resistance.
This laser distance measuring tool has a simple one-button interface, but also features an auto-square mode that automatically calculates square footage.
This is a more-featured laser distance measuring tool, compared to their other one-button models, and – in Bosch’s words – it offers “extreme accuracy.”
Compared to the Bosch GLM20 deal that we recently posted about and is now so sold-out that Amazon removed the product page entirely (or is something else going on?), this model offers greater accuracy (1/16″ vs 1/8″), a larger display, greater range (165′ vs 65′), and an added measurement mode. All for just $10 more.
The GLM165-10 is regularly priced at ~$60, and according to online price history charts, $39 is the lowest price it’s ever been on sale for.
Sale Price: $39

Update 11/2/20 8pm: It looks like Amazon sold out, and Home Depot dropped the price down to $40 to match their emerging store promotion.
Thank you to Mosh for the heads-up, and also to Jim for putting this on my radar!
Dunno why but HD had this live at $39 briefly last week and I ordered it for “home delivery”.
Shoulda waited for Amazon here as I’d have it delivered tomorrow and still best HD’s Wednesday delivery estimate.
Funny how Bezos works.
And completely “first world problems”…
Something is wrong with this. I tried tour link and searched Amazon directly and this appears not to be the price anymore.
Looks like it temporarily sold out.
Maybe the deal wasn’t supposed to go live yet, or they sold out their next expected delivery already.
Now, Home Depot’s page is showing $40 instead of the $60 it was showing earlier.
I tried the link you had for Home Depot, but I hunk it said something like compare at Home Depot, so I wasn’t thinking it was a link showing the same price, but low and behold, I was able to order from HD for $39.xx. It won’t be here until next week, but that’s ok. I’ve seen you post several times before on the lower end Bosch models before but I was never interested. I looked at the specs for this one and I saw that it was much more accurate and had a longer distance so I pulled the trigger. I have a couple of expensive Leica Distos at work that I’ve used in the past and I think this model has similar accuracy. Thanks for the post!
It didn’t earlier. I’ll change it over now.
With this one, I keep wondering what the catch is, but there isn’t any. At a higher price point, I’d probably want more features, but at $39 or $40, this seems pretty compelling.
Current Amazon page shows price of $65.70 at 2pm CDT.
Amazon as a direct seller looks to have sold out, I’d say check back soon/later to try to catch when it comes back in stock at the deal price. I’ll keep an eye on it as well.
I had to go to both HD and Lowes today. Took a look at the state of their Black Friday sales. I live in Northern Virginia, so your mileage may vary.
My HD did have the GLM-165 available for at the sale price. Of course what I went looking for, the two organizers were nowhere to be found, even in the aisle where they would be the rest of the year.
Lowes was just starting to set up, but I had to swing by their tool section. They have reduced the GLM-20 to the same $29.99 that is now sold out at Amazon. It’s available on their web site at the same price. https://www.lowes.com/search?searchTerm=bosch%20laser%20measure
Not here, at least not yet – I’m seeing a $40 price at Lowe’s for the GLM20.
Wondering if it’s your browser. If I remember correctly, you live somewhere near NYC. I checked Bayonne, NJ and Staten Island, NY on both Edge and Chrome on Win10. I’m seeing it at $29.98. In store, there was a yellow reduced price tag on the item.

As of 6:00 MST, they are selling it now for $44.43, originally $47.50, with “Discount Provided by Amazon.”
So I guess Stuart was right: Amazon sold out its stock as direct seller, but third-party sellers can offer it through Amazon. I’ve never heard of Amazon lowering the price of items offered by third parties before; I guess Amazon is reimbursing them some or all of the discount.
Anyway, HD has it for $5 less.
As of yesterday, my local HD had a couple displays with “Your choice $39.98” for the this Bosch OR the Bosch GLL 30 S 30 ft. Self Leveling Cross Line Laser Level — it was with the rest of the Black Friday deals (and it looks like Amazon is matching the GLL 30 S pricing).
Ooh – you’re right!
Here’s the Amazon link for reference.

I was able to get two at $39 for Christmas gifts 🙂 I already have the GLM165-40 and thinks its great!
