In response to yesterday’s post about the great new Milwaukee cordless tool freebie promos, Del left a great tip about Home Depot’s new Tiered Tool Offer.
So what is this Tiered Tool Offer about? Well, it’s simple.
Step 1 is to buy a new cordless combo kit. There are 3 different promo discount levels, depending on the price and size of the combo kit, and 14 eligible combo kits. Prices start at $199.
Step 2 is to buy an additional tool, kit, combo, battery, or accessory.
When you buy a product from Step 1 AND Step 2, you get a discount of $50, $100, or $150, depending on the tier level of the tool selected in Step 1. Makes sense?
The discount is applied automatically to your cart at checkout.
Eligible brands: Milwaukee, Dewalt, Makita, Ridgid.
Level 1 – $50 Savings:
Level 2 – $100 Savings:
Level 3 – $150 Savings:
The items must be purchased together, and you can only get one discount per transaction.
It’s kind of like a credit system – buy something from Step 1, and get a credit towards the purchase of an item from Step 2. In the cart, the discount is spread across both items.
It looks like you can swap some brands. For instance, adding a Ridgid combo kit to my cart and a Milwaukee, Ridgid, or Ryobi Step 2 tool or battery pack resulted in the expected discount. The same was not true for Dewalt.
The crazy-good Milwaukee M12 drill, impact driver, and free bonus battery kit deal that I posted about the other day is included as a Step 2 promo item at the $50 and $100 discount levels.

Seems to be a very good deal, with little or no downside.
It’s unclear as to how long the promo will last. Keep in mind that we might be bound to see a $25 off $100 Dewalt promo later on in the shopping season, as we saw last year, although this would at most affect consideration at the lowest Step 1 tier level.
