Over at Amazon, their Makita $25 off $100+ promo is now live, valid thru the end of the year (11:59pm PT 12/31/2018). It’s usually a good deal that a lot of pros and DIYers look forward to every year.
But, this year it’s a little different. Maybe it’s a programming error, or maybe it’s a way to drum up attention and word-of-mouth hype, but the discount is currently applying in multiples, giving an extra $25 discount for every hundred dollars of a tool’s price.
The Mac700 air compressor, priced over $200, is currently seeing a $50-off discount.
The Mac2400 air compressor, priced a penny away from $300, is currently seeing a $75-off discount.
I tried one more of the eligible $25 off $100 tools. This one, a Makita 18V X2 chainsaw kit, regularly priced over $400, is currently seeing a $100 discount.
I’m inclined to believe that this is a legitimate deal. But, as with the Bosch deal last week, it probably won’t last long. So, hurry up and get some shopping done.
Eligible Tools($25 off $100+ promo via Amazon)
Eligible items must be sold and shipped by Amazon. The discount doesn’t appear in your cart, it only shows up at the final “review your order” checkout step.
At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be any limit to the discount multiplier. Here, the $1000+ Makita power-assisted wheelbarrow kit is discounted by $250.
