Let’s be real – Home Depot’s Black Friday tool deals don’t change that much from year to year. They know what sells and what works, and so there are never many surprises.

Special Buys at Home Depot
Home Depot’s PRO Black Friday savings are still live.
Milwaukee’s M18 cordless vac is on sale for $89.
This Dewalt 20V Max 8-tool cordless power tool combo kit and ToughSystem bundle is still a featured deal at our local store, and there are quite a few left.
Notable Tool Deals
Home Depot has the Dewalt 20V Max Atomic drill kit at $99.

You can also find cordless drill and impact driver kits at the same price by both Makita and Milwaukee.
Compare via Amazon: Makita 18V Drill Kit for $99
Ridgid has a powerful 18V $99 brushless impact driver kit this year.
The new Dewalt mechanics tool set will likely make an appearance in this year’s Black Friday ad.
There are always tape measure deals.
And a Milwaukee 8pc screwdriver set deal.
They have a new Milwaukee Fastback special buy bundle featuring the newly updated tools.
Home Depot will be sure to feature this Milwaukee Packout tool box combo again, although we’re hoping the price drops below the current special buy price of $199.
Expected Oscillating Multi-Tool Tool Deal
This Dewalt 20V Max cordless oscillating multi-tool kit was $99 recently, and will likely be discounted again for Black Friday. And if so, this will be one of the hottest cordless power tool deals of the season.
Expected Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit Promos
This Makita 18V cordless drill and impact driver combo kit is currently $179. There’s a Dewalt Atomic combo kit for $179, and a Milwaukee brushed motor drill and impact driver combo kit for $169. The Milwaukee kit will likely be reduced to $149 for Black Friday again.
Almost every year, each brand has a drill and impact driver combo kit for $149 for Home Depot’s Black Friday sale. We’re not sure which combo kits will be this price this year, but it’s an almost-guaranteed special buy.
The Dewalt Atomic combo kit is in stock at our local stores in unusually high quantities – 2 to 5 dozen at each location. We will likely see this combo kit priced at $149 instead of the current price of $179. Or, it might be highlighted in a bonus-buy of some kind, but that’s less likely.
There are always 12V (and M12) cordless drill and impact driver combo kits for $99.
Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0 Music
Dewalt’s new cordless jobsite music player will almost definitely make an appearance in the Black Friday ad and in-store, probably in the main aisle to get the most attention.
Table Saw Deals
Ridgid has a new $299 table saw promo for this year.
There the usual promos the Dewalt DW745, with or without folding stand.
Dewalt Table Saw: $279 (Compare at Amazon)
Dewalt Table Saw with Folding Stand: $299 (Compare at Amazon)
Also consider: Dewalt Upgraded Table Saw for $279 at Amazon
This compact Ridgid jobsite table saw is on sale for $199 again this year.
There’s usually a Ridgid vacuum deal, but the two Home Depot stores closest to us haven’t put any displays up yet, and there are no indications online about which models might be this year’s promo.
Really, the best way to guess as to what we might see this year is to peek back at previous Black Friday tool deals. Here are the deals from the previous two years if you’re interested:

I will be in for the DeWalt Oscillating Multi-Tool if it goes lower than $100!
I’m guessing the ATOMIC 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Compact 1/2 in. Drill Driver is replacing the vererable DCD777 as the new holiday drill?
Dewalt said no. It looks like the Atomic is Home Depot’s focus, but the DCD777 is still available from other sellers.
Dewalt has 4 different cordless drill kit special buys this year – https://toolguyd.com/best-dewalt-cordless-drill-kit-deal-112019/
I have found Home Depot’s leadup to be fantastic, mostly online in the “Special Buys”.
It is sold out in a lot of sizes now, but I got a $40 Carhartt Chore Coat because there is a minor update coming.
Flexvolt Mixer with free 3ah/9ah battery. This was something I wanted but did not need, and the free battery made the “bare tool” a no-brainer.
I also pick up a two pack of the Diablo Diamond cutoff wheels almost every time I go to the store, and I use them to hit $45 on any shipping orders. For my uses these are awesome and I hope to rarely need abrasive cutoff wheels any more.
I’ve already invested in the M18 platform and would love to see an oscillating tool deal somewhere comparable to the Dewalt one. Not happening in my life time I think.
Or a good corded any brand palm sander deal or M18 cordless one. Guess you have to be lucky lol
M18 OMT $99 kit on the third to last page
The largest Ridgid vac is marked down to $99 from $159 at the two HD stores that I visit in Minnesota.
And the Home Depot 11% rebate is in effect.
The 11% rebates have never seemed to be applicable at any to the Home Depot’s in my neck of the woods. I’ve always thought that they might apply to stores that are not doing so well – and used as an sales stimulator.
11% rebate is a Menards thing that they match.
If you have no Menards, your HD won’t offer it.
The vacuum was on sale at my store in Minnesota as well. I bought it. Its too good of a deal to pass up. Its model 1800 and comes with a fine dust filter, multiple attachments, and the design is quite good having large rear wheels and a standing handle. The vacuum is 16 gallons and rated for 6.5 peak hp (not that this matters since shop vac power ratings are a well-known sham). I was surprised it also came with a Ridgid exhaust/silencer which is usually a $13 addition. I tested it right away and I can confirm it has great power. My gf was vacuuming our air filtration system out and she had a hard time pulling the nozzle off the pre-filter while vacuuming which I thought was very impressive. Anyway, I thought I would add my experience.
HD will match 11% on anything or only specific products? Since Menards doesn’t carry dewalt, will HD give 11% off?
I’m watching the following two Milwaukee items that I have in my HD cart waiting for a drop from their current BF deals on these items:
1) M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion High Output 6.0Ah Battery Pack (2-Pack)
model #48-11-1862, Currently at $179
2) Super Battery Charger Starter Kit with 8.0 Ah High Output Battery
model #48-59-1880SC, Currently at $199
They have the 12 + 8 for $199 – which is decent if you buy batteries. I at least try to get a tool thrown in; I seem to have too many batteries.
I wish there were m12, or even m18, tool-only options / small packout bundles (with the blow-molded plastic that holds everything nicely). I just want tool-only, and instead of the charger have some room for accessories. Tools like the jigsaw, rotary tool, and new die grinder would be perfect for this. The packout box could hold all the accessories you need without wasting space for the charger.
Totally unrelated to this post, but has anyone seen that the DeWalt Xtreme kits have increased at Lowe’s from $99? I wonder, do you think it’s possible the price went up since people will be buying these kits over the holidays and they can make more profit? Or was it just an introductory price? Any chance they’ll go back to $99? Particularly looking for Stu’s input since he’s been spot on with pricing predictions in the past. Thanks.
Stuey is the Amazing Kreskin of Black Friday!
I’d bet that the kits will be discounted to $99 again. If I had to put a number to my certainty, I’d say there’s at least a 95% chance the price will go back to $99.
If your arm was twisted and you had to hazard a guess…. do you think it’s a temporary price hike for the holidays? I’m eyeballing that 3/8 impact and was going to buy it, but then the next day it was $149. Wouldn’t you think the holiday season is when you would want to move volume? A lower price would certainly be conducive to doing that, no?
It would be a pre-holiday price hike.
IF the price was hiked for the holidays, shoppers might go with competing brands – Milwaukee M12 – for instance. From a strategic point of view, these *should* be $99 again shortly.
If the kits were discounted to $99 in August, https://toolguyd.com/dewalt-xtreme-12v-max-brushless-cordless-power-tool-kits-deal-082019/ , I can’t imagine that we wouldn’t see those same discounts now.
There are never any guarantees, only chances, but in this case I would say there’s a very strong chance we’ll see those kits discounted very soon.
Not discounting those kits – or not promoting them at Lowe’s stores at peak foot-traffic season – would be a huge mistake.
You’re awesome. Thanks.
Thanks! I try. I hope I’m right about this!
Just saw ToughSystem 2.0 radio at my local home Depot, 20 minutes ago. Front of store walkway, $229.00, two left, display looked like there had been maybe 5-6 if they weren’t double stacked. I’m in Nevada.
I’d bet that it’ll be $199.
Does anybody know if there will be any kctool or HJE Black Friday deals?
Working on it.
Looking for KCTool also. The stuff I bought from them last year have been an absolute pleasure to use.
I also would have never found them or tried German tools if it wasn’t for ToolGuyd. Thanks for opening my eyes to what’s out there.
Yep–exactly what they said–another word of thanks, Stuart. Knipex, Wera, and KCTools are amazing
KCTools deals are live now
Good news – I have acquired KC Tool’s secret list of Black Friday specials.
Bad news – I’m sworn to secrecy. I’ll have the post up Thursday morning, can’t share details before then.
*cough* Historical Record *cough*
Any chance the new M18 Fuel 12″ Miter saw will be a black friday special? I’m very interested in the saw and am hoping for a discounted price and/or a free extra battery similar to the deal they did with the 10″ miter saw when it was introduced (and appear to be doing again this year)
I don’t think so. There could be a “buy this, get a free battery/bonus” promo, but it might be too early for a promo like that even.
I was at HD last night getting some materials for the job and I checked out the so called “deals” that were on display and 99% of it was the same diy grade bullsht from last year and years past. In fact it’s the same diy grade bullsht across the board that repeatedly gets posted on dealguyd every year. It’s always the same low end mediocre entry level diy grade bullshit cordless tools that are always the same brands which are always the same types of tools sold by the same retailers every single year. Over and over and over and over and over and over again. It is clockwork. It’s to be expected. It’s never going to change no matter how they alternate the selection which happens to be nearly identical every year. How is promoting these “deals” helping anyone by promoting deals only for the good without mentioning the better and best? At least make it known that there’s better options available than what is being promoted as a deal. Regardless of the better and best options not being on sale. Just because the tools that are promoted on dealguyd or any blog or website as being some bs black Friday deal doesn’t mean that it’s a good decision to consider it or buy it. And for anyone who might be thinking about buying the Dewalt atomic drill, you’re going to be disappointed. That is one weak and puny drill to say the least. No driving power whatsoever. If you want to spend your hundred dollars on a dewalt drill then I recommend the dcd777.
How do you really feel about the deals? In all seriousness, I think Stuart does an impressive job about describing the various tools that are offered and who they are actually targeted for / their intended usage.
It’s the same every year. “These deals suck, you suck for promoting them.” But then those same critics never write in with any better deals that they find.
Isn’t that how it goes? This sucks, that sucks, you suck……..some people are only happy if they are bringing others down and don’t really have anything to bring to the table besides negativity.
I personally love the info, love the site and the head up on deals…….keep on rockin’ it Stu
I find this content extremely helpful myself. The collation of all the deals in one spot is very helpful and greatly appreciated. Whilst I use many prograde tools I often compliment my collection with “low end mediocre entry level diy bullshit” tools because the application doesn’t justify a greater investment. It’s just smart business. Equally smart is purchasing said tools at the best price available so the content is helpful to me. I don’t see any promotion happening here.
If anyone is considering the Dewalt atomic drill then this may help more than some random opinion: https://toolguyd.com/dewalt-atomic-20v-cordless-power-tools/
I feel the same. I am NOT a pro, but I enjoy looking on this site daily, for both the content as well as the discussion in the comments section. For me, this site does an excellent job, including the deal sections
Agree 100% Stuey does an excellent job of researching this stuff and manages to present it in an informative and entertaining format.
Find better deals, let me know. =)
Every year, there are people expanding their tool kits for the first time – DIYers, homeowners, pros that don’t like to replace tools until they completely break down.
There is so much to sort through, I try to highlight the ones that are of most interest.
As for Dewalt Atomic vs DCD777, power specs are the same, but with the DCD777 having slightly higher speeds. They’re BOTH light duty drills.
Stu. You are the best. I check toolguyd page literally every day, 2x during holiday season.
I’ve found great deals, tools I didn’t know about and now love and community. Thank you.
If you or anyone else has deal requests I should be on the lookout for, I’d be glad to oblige.
Ace Hardware seems to have some deals going that actually best some of the other places – I have my hands on a $15 off regularly priced item and the small deep Packout organizer for $20 hasn’t been beat anywhere I’ve seen.
Thanks for all you do Stuart. This is always a great source of info on picking up tools I don’t yet own at a better price.
Any ideas if Fastcap or kaizeninserts run black friday deals? I’m looking to outfit some tstak boxes with some better organization.
I don’t remember ever seeing FastCap Black Friday deals. I’ll try to keep an eye out for a Kaizeninserts deal, but you will probably stand a better chance checking their social media account(s).
Whether its Home Depot, Lowes, Acme, ToolUp or any of the other retailers that go in for Black Friday promotions – their goal is to stimulate maximum sales and add to their profitability. Can you imagine your local HD – putting up a big display of Milwaukee 2879-22 crimper kits – with a “special buy” sign saying “NOW $5000.00”. They naturally go for what appeals to the mass market – what will generate foot traffic or lots of on-line shopping – not good deals on high-priced specialty tools – or maybe not on tools that generally have robust sales throughout the year.
Vendors don’t achieve the economies of scale at retail outlets to push down prices this far for higher grade tools. When they do, it’s usually at a loss and there’s some higher strategic priority to discounting it than Black Friday.
Higher grade tools would be MORE expensive if the mass produced tools weren’t generating revenue for the manufacturers to invest into R&D and materials for the higher end stuff.
Speaking of DeWALT and Home Depot: the DWST14825 deep parts organizer goes down in price from time to time, and right now it’s only $14.97 (probably not the best price ever, but usually it’s closer to $20 than to $15, as far as I remember).
More interesting, on Amazon one can buy a *shallow* organizer, FMST14920, right now for only $13.33. I think it’s the lowest price I saw anywhere (and I never saw this thing in the Home Depot stores).
Home Depot had the deep parts organizers for $8-9 each in 2017 on BF.
Last year they were $14.97, which they are regularly throughout the year.
I’d like to see them drop to sub $10 again, but I doubt it.
Toughsystem 2.0 Radio looks like it doesn’t have the new style of latches…
The one thing I wish that HD would do is an inexpensive Ryobi starter kit and pick your bare tool(s) deal. AFAIK, there is only ONE cordless hot melt glue gun available, and it’s made by Ryobi. That’s the ONE Ryobi tool that I’m interested in, and just mayyyyybe their cordless brad nailer. BOTH are only available as bare tools. It would be cheaper to buy a drill kit and chuck the drill than it is to buy a pair of batteries and a charger, but that would still be painfully wasteful.
Surebonder has glue guns that work with Ryobi ONE+ batteries, and with some other battery platforms as well.
I have the Ryobi Glue Gun and I really like it. The glue gun and hand vac are the only (2) Cordless Ryobi tools I currently own as everything else is 20v DEWALT and Milwaukee M12. Originally I had purchased the Black Decker 20v glue gun when it came out but I didn’t feel it got hot enough to work adequately so after reading all the positive reviews, I purchased the Ryobi Glue Gun. I believe I purchased some Ryobi Drill on special/clearance/etc. with the larger 4ah battery and charger and then got rid of the drill hence left with battery and charger. It’s not the quick charger but that is okay with me! And your right…I don’t believe I have ever seen the glue gun in a promotion where you can pick it as an additional tool. I do however see the nail guns on promotion frequently so perhaps that may be your ticket ie nail gun with battery and charger and than picking up the Glue gun as a bare tool.
2 Many Sockets Joe
Stuart what’s your feelings on the Home Depot Husky H270MTS 270 piece mechanics tool kit currently a “special buy” price of 149.00 on their website. According to quantity at my local store they have 70!……..even when in 2017 when they had the H268MTS on sale for $99 they only got like 15. Think the “bigger” set will drop below $149
It’s hard to say. If the 268pc set was $99, there’s no reason why a 270pc set could be priced similarly, at least unless there’s a big difference in the contents.
With so many in stock at stores (mine too), it doesn’t hurt to wait until Wednesday or Thursday to see what the price will be.
$99 is always a magical price, but we’ll have to wait to see. That set is $149 now. $129 seems too high, and so that gives more support to $99. But why up the part count then?
I wish they would bring back the Leatherman Skeletool deal from a couple years ago. For small purchases that was one of the best I’ve made in a long time. I wish I had bought a couple for myself at the time to have spares.
I bought myself three of them – one for each glove box and one for the desk drawer. Unfortunately I found that I really HATE the half serrated blade. If I wanted a half assed saw, I’d buy a half assed saw…
And, Leatherman won’t even let you buy a straight edged replacement blade.
last year a couple of stores had the Milwaukee chainsaw kit for $399 w/ an extra battery, any word of anyone doing something similar this year? I’m in the market for one now.
I see that CPO (maybe others too) throw in the blower at the $449 price.
Of course if someone will do a $399 deal with a free battery- that’s a lo better – but I haven’t spied one
If I didn’t already have the blower I would go that route.
My local HD had the two 4.0 Ryobi battery set for $89 yesterday. If it’s now at $79 and the smaller inflator is $25- That may be better than the two 3.0 batteries and free inflator if it stays at $150…
I’m on the fence about which of their inflators would be better for me. Primary use would be car tires and bikes. Anyone have experience with any?
If I recall correctly, the $25 inflator is not “set and forget.”
More featured inflators are easier for topping off tires.
I do like the auto feature on the larger model. I was wondering if that’s the only significant difference. I didn’t notice before today that the cheaper model has a digital display.
I have used the small ryobi inflator a fair bit. Had to exchange the initial one because the gauge was off by ten psi. Found one that was off by three or so ( reads high, actual psi lower ). I’m using it to keep some lawn mower, lawn cart, hand truck stuff inflated.
Very handy in that regard, compared to getting power and a compressor or a bigger air tank to where the item may be parked in/by a shed that doesn‘t have power.
Have both and they are both fine. Like having the HPI in the car for the kids’ bikes, etc. But the gauge is not super accurate and you do have to hold the trigger down the whole time. Still, for 20-odd dollars, I like it.
I have had the the larger inflator/blower for a couple of years and really like it. It lives in my car, and I’ve been giving them as gifts to friends for their car kits. That got a lot more reasonable when I found a local Ryobi refurb/factory blemish outlet. Now the expensive thing is getting them started in the battery and charger ecosystem so I’m always on the lookout for cheap ways in.
Those BF deals seem really weak, especially from Milwaukee. I know there’s a deal where you buy the M12 Fuel installation driver and get a free 6.0 Battery, but was hoping for at least a drop in price. $229 is too much for any 12v tool imo.
Thank you kindly for all that you do, Stuart! Guess I’ll skip HD this year.
18g DCN680 is all I need. For like $100, not $250 MSRP.
I can’t justify 4x cost cordless vs. pneumatic
Then get the ryobi 18g on sale for $99 right now. I’ve run it for a few years in my remodeling business and i haven’t touched my pneumatic since. One of the best tools I’ve ever bought
In today’s (Sunday) paper,the Meijer ad insert had a 40% off Tekton tools Thu (Thanksgiving) and Fri only. Limited to stock on-hand, and no rain checks.
Are Home Depot black Friday items available online?
They usually are. I’m still working on link creation, and some of the deals aren’t online yet. The online prices usually kick off on Thanksgiving, except maybe for doorbusters.
Ad scans were posted on blackfriday.com today.
This seems pretty good: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M12-12-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-3-8-in-Impact-Wrench-Kit-With-3-8-in-Drive-Metric-Socket-Set-12-Piece-2463-21P/302740149 – the 3/8 impact wrench is $109 itself and this kit is $99 and comes with a battery, charger, and a socket set (metric).

Where are the Channellock gift packs this year? Homedepot and Lowes carried the two – three pack of pliers with a bottle opener or screwdriver for years. None so far in 2019.
I asked and was told there won’t be any Channellock promos at Home Depot or Lowe’s this year.
Pretty disappointed with HD Black Friday circular this year. Same stuff and not even a real good doorbuster. Last year they had Two stage Snow Blowers for $400. That at least got me out of bed. Thankfully Lowes price matched. BF pricing is very similar thru out the year and in fact you can find better pricing on some items during Spring and Labor Day sales. They guard their circular with the upmost secrecy but I honestly think they have better deals on their website. Ace Hardware has a pretty good BF deal on Milwaukee Packout. I ordered two of the Small Parts Organizers for $19.99 each. They also have the large wheeled base for $89 instead of $129.
Is the $25 Ridgid parts organizer compatible with their stackable tool boxes?
Yes, it is.
Good to know. I bought into the Rigid system last year. But the parts organizer is not a BF deal. The $25 is the “new lower price”.
A few weeks ago I posted about getting my oldest kid a new cordless set (12V) for Christmas. Took a walk thru HD with him over the weekend. And he threw a wrench in the works. He has been doing lots of metal work lately, and said if he gets a tool system he wants something with and angle and maybe die grinders.
Well that throws a wrench in the plans.
The only 12V system with metal working stuff in Milwaukee, which he liked, but I’m thinking he may really need something bigger for a angle grinder. I would just go Ryobi, but one reason to get him his own is so he stops taking by 18V ryobi and 12V dewalt stuff. So now If thinking Maybe Rigid for the warranty or Skil because they look neat but, maybe 20V dewalt would be right, which he also liked.
I guess might let the deals shake themselves out there are decent deals on the M12 stuff now for a starter set.
I would get him a Milwaukee M12 Gen 2 Fuel drill and impact as if he’s starting a new platform, he’s going to need the basics. That way when he expands he can get the M12 grinder and later expand to M18 for angle grinder.
Underwhelming Home Depot Black Friday advert.
Saw most of the pages. Lots of same old same old, lots of generic filler, none of the dozen things I may pick up is on sale or at a great price point, some BF prices are just the ypical annual “ special offer “, but several are not matching prior event deals … ridgid kit has been cheaper for instance … Ryobi offer for the old 3ah battery kit with small charger went up to $129 to get a free tool while two new 4ah batts are $79 making the travel charger $$$ … ridgid or milwaukee storage individual items not discounted.
Maybe the good stuff is on the last pages, that I did not get to see.
I thought I’d let people know, if you like Tekton, all Tekton is 40% at Meijer on Black Friday.
i just came from Home Depot in Florida and scored a Ridgid Miter Saw stand listed for $199. walked out with it for $99.00. OH YEAH!!!
i already had the Ridgid saw and couldn’t see spending $200 for a stand.
I just came here to post that!
None of the stores near me show it local, but it’s $99 online as well, with free shipping.
From the looks of it, Home Depot went to what I call “ Holiday mode “, meaning any item that is discounted, “ special buy “ type featured in the advert, … – and actually in sufficient stock in store & regionally; cannot be ordered for local pickup, will not show transparent availability, and have “ limited stock, call “.
Every time same thing. Holiday. One travels. Looks at the ad first day HD releases it. Online shopping has started. Want to instant buy and pick it up next time to avoid shipping damage and/or have the item faster over the weekend, rather than in 7 days. No can do.
They actually have lost some sales, as the item may not be available online ( getting better with the years ), or not have free shipping / carries a shipping charge, …
Just looked again. Same thing like last year. Cannot order for local pickup. Cannot ship to store.
I understand HD wants items available through the door sales for TG / BF sales … I just hate the timing game, this store, that store, crowd hassles, waiting outside in freezing temps for 30-60 min.
Never mind the fact that companies will not even keep doors closed on TG and wait till 6-7am next business day, out of respect for their employees and customers.
But that’s a different matter.
Thanks for the heads up.
Ordered one. ( rather than trying to put wheels under my cheapo click leg stand I have for two years now )
Hello – I would appreciate any thoughts on the Husky 36″ tool cabinet/chest combo for $400. This seems like a pretty good price – maybe even a bit better than US General at HF.
thanks much, Steve
