The winter holiday season is fast approaching, which means… it’s crazy-good tool deal time. Now, thru the end of the year (12/31/2018), buy a Dewalt 20V Max brushless tool kit, get 2 FREE bare tools, from 12 choices.
The kit, DCK299P2, comes with Dewalt’s best cordless 3-speed hammer drill (DCD996), and their best 3-speed cordless impact driver (DCF887), both of course sporting brushless motors. It also comes with (2) 5.0Ah Li-ion battery packs, a charger, and hard tool case.
Then, you pick your choice of freebie bare tool, from 12 options.
- DCF885 impact driver
- DCS391B circular saw

- DCG412B angle grinder
- *DCF889B impact wrench

- DCS551B drywall cut-out tool
- DCL043 LED spotlight
- DCE100B blower
- DCV517B vacuum
- *DCS355B brushless oscillating multi-tool
* Acme Tools has the DCF889B impact wrench as an option, Tool Nut has the DCS355B brushless multi-tool as an option
Acme Tools and Tool Nut are both participating in the promo. They have similar offerings for the free bonus tool offer, but with one difference, mentioned just above. There might be other differences that aren’t obvious to me, and the selection might change depending on availability.
Both retailers are sold out at the moment, but they have more supplies on the way. If past years’ experiences have taught me anything, it’s this – order what you want as soon as you can, while you can. If you wait for supplies to be back in stock, you’ll be waiting a long time.
Is this a good deal? Yes, I think so. At the moment, you can get the drill and impact driver kit at a discounted price via at least one dealer, or if you pay full price you get 2 free bare tools. The bare tool options are good ones too, with premium circular and reciprocating saws (as opposed to less expensive “combo” versions of both) among them.
Both Acme Tools and Tool Nut offer free shipping.

There are bound to be some very good deals starting in just a few weeks, but this will be one of the rare deals that lets you get exactly what you want – if the free bonus tools strike your fancy.
You CAN wait to see how things play out – remember, this deal ends on 12/31/18. But, it’s also while supplies last. In past years, supplies of certain tools ran out, sometimes quite fast.
Acme Tools and Tool Nut are friendly retailers, both are affiliate partners, and I have had great personal shopping experiences at both. Other retailers might be offering this or a similar deal, but I haven’t checked yet.
A few months ago I posted about The Best Dewalt 20V Max Cordless Power Tool Combo Kit Right Now, mentioning in that post that the DCK483D2 kit is a good brushless combo kit.
This kit features Dewalt’s compact brushless drill, brushless impact driver (the same one as in the promo kit above), a brushless circular saw, and an LED worklight. It comes with (2) compact 2.0Ah battery packs, which while less than ideal for the circular saw are well matched to the drill and impact.
It’s currently $379.
