Home Depot has officially kicked off their FREE cordless power tool and battery offer, which has become a popular holiday season mainstay.
The promotion has been expanded for the Black Friday 2021 shopping season, as there are now different tiers where you can select 1, 2, or 3 free gift items depending on your kit or starter kit purchase.
This is always one of the biggest Black Friday and Holiday promotions of the season, as it lets you select and save money on what you want. You can essentially create your own promo combo kit, with some limits based on the free gift selection, rather than trying to fit one of the many standard-SKU combo kits.
This promo tends to feature more premium tools, compared to the very many cordless power tool combo kits that pop up for Black Friday sales every year.
To take advantage of these deals, select your “free gift with purchase” item before you add the item to your cart. The two offers where you have to select 2 or 3 free tools will have different combinations to choose from, although they don’t seem to be in stock online at the moment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Many of these types of “buy this” cordless power tool combo kits and starter sets usually sell out early every year, but they’re often replenished later in the season, and this cycle sometimes repeats a couple of times. The same is often true for the more popular free gift selections. Some of these deals are available online, others are only available online for in-store pickup. Take advantage of this if you can.
If you get buyer’s remorse, you can usually return your purchase for a full refund. If an offer sells out, you might be out of luck and options.
Dewalt Black Friday 2021 20V Max Bonus Tool Offer
Home Depot has been greatly leveraging their exclusive Dewalt FlexVolt and FlexVolt Advantage availability with these combo kits, which will differentiate their offerings from other retailers and competitive “free gift with purchase” promos.
The free tool and battery selection is also really good, almost exclusively featuring brushless 20V Max and FlexVolt Advantage tools.
Milwaukee Black Friday 2021 M18 Bonus Tool Offer
Milwaukee’s free tool selection also mainly features M18 Fuel brushless power tools. I’d go for any of the free tool selections here, except for the M18 oscillating multi-tool. If you want that oscillating multi-tool, it’s available as a “special buy” with 1.5Ah battery and charger for $99.
The Milwaukee deal is a really good value, depending on your selection.
For instance, this special M18 Fuel SURGE driver bundle, available as a selectable gift and in a similar pre-selected promotional combo, is a fantastic buy.
The M18 Surge kit, which typically comes with 2x 5Ah batteries and a charger, is regularly priced at $329. Here, you get an almost identical kit, but with tool bag instead of a plastic case, for $199.
Makita Black Friday 2021 18V Bonus Tool Offer
Buy Makita 18V Brushless Drill & Impact Combo, Get 1 Free Tool
Buy Makita 18V 2x 4Ah Battery and Charger Kit, Get 1 Free Tool
Buy Makita 18V X2 Rear-Handle Saw Kit, Get 1 Free Tool
Buy Makita 18V Premium Hammer Drill & Impact Combo, Get 2 Free Tools
A reader recently asked if Amazon’s discounted price on the Makita 18V premium brushless combo kit is a good deal. It is, but I think it’s better to spend full price and get free tools that are definitely worth the price difference.
