Over at Amazon, this Dewalt 20V Max 9-tool cordless power tool combo kit dropped in price to $499. It doesn’t seem to be a deal of the day, so I’m not quite sure what’s going on.
I added this kit, DCK940D2, and several others to my shopping card, predicting that they would be holiday season deals of the day or similar. But there doesn’t seem to be any obvious expiration.
There do seem to be limited quantities – I see an “only 11 left in stock (more on the way)” notice.
Price: $474 (Amazon offers an additional $25 off $100+ discount on this combo right now)
If Amazon’s allotment sells out, there’s a 3rd party seller whose price also dropped to $499 this morning.

This combo kit was a “deal of the day” last March, with a $599 price.
Here’s what you get:
- DCD771 Drill/Driver (Compare Price)
- DCF885 Impact Driver (Compare Price)
- DCS381 Reciprocating Saw
- DCS393 Circular Saw
- DCS355 Brushless Oscillating Multi-Tool (Compare Price)
- DCL040 LED Worklight (Compare Price)
- DCG412 Angle Grinder (Compare Price)
- DCR006 Bluetooth Speaker (Compare Price)
- DCD740 Right Angle Drill (Compare Price)
- 2x 2.0Ah Li-ion Battery Packs
- Standard Charger
- Tool Bags
You get a holiday season-version drill/driver, combo kit versions of the circular saw and reciprocating saw which lack one or two features of the more premium versions, and the other tools seem to be regular versions of all the respective tools and accessories.
You might want to pick up a higher capacity battery pack or two separately, but the 2.0Ah compact battery packs will always be good to pair the smaller tools with.

While this might not be the kit I’d personally pick out for myself, it offers a very good selection of tools at high bang for the buck value. I’d feel compelled to upgrade the drill and as mentioned pick up a larger battery pack to power those saw’s with.
I’ve been spoiled by some of the technologies that I’ve grown used to, such as brushless motors and multi-speed impact drivers. But with kits like this, you trade off advanced features and premium designs for sheer functionality.
