Over at Acme Tools, their Black Friday/Thanksgiving weekend deals are still going strong. I took a fresh look to see if there were any especially good deals I missed, and this Dewalt 20V Max LED worklight and battery bundle caught my attention as a really good deal!
This special bundle, DCL043DCL050, comes with Dewalt LED worklights, plus (2) 2.0Ah batteries.
- DCL043: $68-$79 via Amazon
- DCL050: $49 via Amazon, $39 via Tool Nut
- 2x 2.0Ah Batteries: $74 for a 2-pack via Amazon
The lowest I could source the two LED worklights for is ~$79 for the DCL043 and $39 for the DCL050 via authorized sellers. A 3rd party seller on Amazon has the DCL043 for a little less. Going by these figures, the two LED worklights would be ~$107 to $118 combined. The batteries are another $74 to $79 on top of that.
Right now, Acme’s price is $139, but the bundle looks to be eligible for Dewalt’s $25 off $100+ promo, dropping the price to $114.
Here’s how I’m choosing to see this deal. I really like the Dewalt DCL043 spotlight, despite early reservations. That worklight/spotlight is $79. Batteries are $74. So this deal is $114 for batteries I could use with other Dewalt 20V Max cordless power tools, an LED worklight, and the DCL050 which might still be useful, I’d consider that a bonus.
Personally, I’d buy the DCL043, which is the brighter pivoting head spotlight. The DCL050? I’d use it, but I don’t know if I’d pay for one, given my particular needs and the other area worklights I have available. That’s why I’d consider it a bonus.
So to me, I’d be getting a great deal on the spotlight and battery 2-pack, and a bonus handheld area light. And that’s still a great deal. Now if you want both LED worklights, the spotlight for longer distance illumination and the area light for closer area illumination, this is an even better deal.
I’d like to see more deals like this. I recognize it’s pretty much aimed at existing Dewalt users, but that’s not a bad thing. There are a lot of deals aimed at getting users into a cordless power tool system, and not enough bare tool and tool plus battery bundles for those already invested in a particular system.
Deal ends 12/2/2019.
