A reader wrote in with a slightly complex Dewalt 20V/12V cordless power tool deal that provides incredibly good value.
Start off with the DCK295L3 combo kit at Home Depot. It includes a 20V premium drill/driver (DCD980), 2x 3.0Ah extended-capacity 20V batteries, a 12V compact screwdriver (DCF610), a single 12V battery pack, a dual-voltage charger, and carrying bag.
With an automatic $25-off-$100 discount at checkout the combo kit drops in price to $174.

Okay, so that’s a premium heavy-duty drill and compact screwdriver plus 3x Li-ion battery packs for $174.
Next, there’s the Dewalt DCF895B 20V brushless impact driver. If you want the combo kit, it’ll set you back $304 after coupon. But then with the batteries and charger from the 20V/12V combo, you don’t need the whole impact driver kit. You can pickup the bare-tool brushless impact driver for $134 after $25 instant discount at checkout.

What this all means is that you can get both the 20V/12V drill and screwdriver kit and the non-kit brushless impact driver for only a few dollars more than just the impact driver kit itself. If you buy both combos, you get the heavy duty drill/driver and 12V screwdriver practically for free.
This doesn’t help you if you want to use the 20V impact with compact batteries instead of the high-capacity ones, but that doesn’t make this any less of an incredible value.
Thanks to John for the tip!
