I spotted a new Milwaukee M18 Fuel cordless power tool combo kit, model 3698-24MT, and it’s at the heart of a new “buy this, get free tools” deal bundle.
You know what this means – the 2022 holiday shopping season has officially begun.
With this year’s promo, you buy the M18 Fuel 4-tool combo kit for $599, and choose TWO free tools or accessories.
The kit comes with:
Milwaukee M18 Fuel Hammer Drill (2904) – the latest-and-greatest M18 Fuel cordless hammer drill delivers 1400 in-lbs max torque and features AutoStop anti-kickback protection.
Milwaukee M18 Fuel Impact Driver (2953) – the latest and greatest M18 Fuel cordless impact driver delivers 2000 in-lbs max torque and has a 4-mode Drive Control.
Milwaukee M18 Fuel Oscillating Multi-Tool (2836) – featuring brushless motor, tool-free blade changes, variable speed dial, vibration dampening technology.
Milwaukee LED Flashlight (2735) – pivoting head, 100 lumens High-Def TrueView output
Charger, Kit Bag, High Output Compact 3Ah and XC 6Ah Batteries
AND, you can choose (2) free tools or accessories – such as an additional battery or premium charger.
Different retailers will usually have a different selection of free cordless power tools and accessories to choose from.
Early listings – with the promo already live but not quite in full swing yet – have some good freebie tool choices, such as Milwaukee’s M18 Fuel cordless router, Hackzall compact reciprocating saw, M18 Fuel blower, 5Ah battery, M18 Fuel jig saw, drywall screwgun, dual bay charger, M18 Fuel angle grinder, and more.
Price: $599 for the 4-tool combo + 2 FREE tool choices
If you’re saying “I don’t quite need all that,” there’s another deal – buy this Milwaukee M18 Fuel cordless hammer drill and impact driver kit, and select 1 free tool or accessory.
The 3697-22 kit comes with the latest generation hammer drill and impact driver, a charger, tool box, and 2x 5Ah batteries.
The freebie tool selection looks to be much of the same, featuring a top-handle jig saw, additional 5Ah battery, cordless router, and more.
Price: $399 for the 2-too combo + 1 FREE tool
Yes, this seems like a great deal.
For historical context, last year’s deal was a starter kit ($199) or M18 Fuel hammer drill and impact driver combo kit ($399) with your choice of (1) free tool or accessory.
With this year’s deal, you get the latest-generation M18 Fuel hammer drill and impact driver – which just launched this past summer, plus a M18 Fuel brushless oscillating multi-tool, flashlight, and High Output batteries.
This combo kit – 3698-24MT – does not seem to have existed prior to the the 2022 holiday deals season.
For $200 on top of the $399 for the regular combo kit, you get the premium OMT, a flashlight, and (2) free tools.
One of the bundle options includes an M18 Fuel jig saw and angle grinder (via Home Depot). This seems like an excellent deal considering that the cordless jig saw and angle grinder are both valued at $199 each.
The single freebie deal is always a good deal – you get the regular $399 kit with your choice of free extra/bonus tool. $200 more for the other freebie gets you an M18 Fuel oscillating multi-tool (valued at $229 at the time of this posting), a bonus tool (valued up to $199), and a flashlight.
The 2-tool combo comes with 2x 5Ah batteries, the 4-tool combo comes with High Output 3Ah and 6Ah batteries.
