I came across the following Dewalt screwdriver and drill bit deals at the local Home Depot, as part of their 2014 holiday tool deals display:
16-piece black oxide drill bit set for
46-piece drill/driving bit set for
20V Max drill/driver kit (DCD771C2) for
$129 $99 ($99 is the regular holiday sale price)
72-piece screwdriver bit set for
31-piece screwdriver bit set for
The DCD771 20V max cordless drill was a Home Depot Black Friday special last year, for $99, and other retailers also carried it for $99. The deal came back for Father’s Day this year, and there’s also a new DCD771 drill and DCF885 impact driver combo kit. It was reasonable to expect that the $99 deal would return to this price around Black Friday, and it has.
As for the bit sets, nothing really stood out about them, unless you’re looking to replenish your supply of common bit sizes. These sets have high bit counts, but little variability. The drill bits look to be basic as well, and I would have liked to have seen some PilotPoint bit sets on sale.
Amazon’s 10% off $25+ and 20% off $50+ Dewalt accessories pre-Black Friday holiday sale was a good bargain, as it offered a discount on sets with greater bit selection, but that deal has expired. The current deal is for 20% off eligible power tool accessories with purchase of a Dewalt tool or battery. With this deal, there are over 600 qualifying tools and batteries that activate the 20% off accessories deal.
130-piece drilling and driving bit set for
This set has slightly better bit selection, but a lot of the screwdriver bits you get are going to be duplicates. Again, it’s a good set to replenish your one-person bit supply with.
There were a couple of Dewalt accessory set deals at Lowes as well:
27pc drilling and screwdriver bit set for $9.97
This is a very basic bit set.
100pc drilling and driving bit set for $24.97
While this combo package also has a lot of duplicate bits, there’s greater variety, including PolotPoint drill bits and a couple of impact-rated bits in the black ToughCase.
