While I was writing up today’s post about the Bosch 12V Max screwdriver and impact driver deal of the day, I quickly checked to see what the separate screwdriver and impact driver kits were selling for. What I found was great pricing on Bosch’s PS21 screwdriver kit.
For $80, you get the cordless screwdriver, a charger, a carrying case, and (2) Li-ion batteries. The photo shows that at least one and presumably both of the battery packs are Bosch’s newer 2.0Ah battery packs. That makes this an even better deal.
The description doesn’t mention the size of the batteries, but when I checked Bosch Tools’ product page for the PS21 kit, they show the same image with a 2.0Ah battery pack’s label facing forward.
This is Bosch’s second-generation pocket driver, and while not brushless like the newer PS22 ($149 via Amazon), the PS 21 isn’t no slouch. It’s a very capable and great quality cordless screwdriver, and also still reasonably compact.
Last year, right before Christmas, the brushless PS22 went on sale for $124 and was eligible for an additional $25 discount, making the final price $99. I’d say there’s a 50:50 chance that we’ll see a similar deal again this year. And if not, there will probably still be a $20 or $25 off $100+ discount. Even so, I don’t think we’re ever going to see the brushless screwdriver kit discounted to $80.
I can’t tell you for sure when this kit went on sale for $80, or how long this price will last. According to online price trackers, this kit was discounted to $80 late last month, and this is the lowest it’s been for almost 2 years. It was briefly priced at $79 back in December of 2013.
Based on past history and reasonably guessing, I’d say that the $80 price for this kit won’t last long. But, if you miss out on this sale, it *might* be eligible for whatever holiday promo discount Bosch is cooking up with Amazon and other online retailers this year.
