This combo kit, 2695-25CX, appears to have been specially put together for Home Depot, and possibly for this promo.
Last year, there was a 4-tool combo kit at this price, with the bundle including a hammer drill, Sawzall reciprocating saw, older style impact driver, and 2x 3Ah batteries.
It looks like this deal, $299 for the 2695-25CX combo kit, is a very good deal. You get regular Milwaukee M18 tools – nothing like other brands’ entry-level tools that pop up in huge quantities seasonally.
The only compromise I can see is that you get low capacity battery packs, at least compared to today’s standards. There’s a compact battery pack, which pairs well with the drill, impact driver, or LED flashlight, and an XC battery pack which pairs well with the heavier duty tools – the circular saw and Hackzall reciprocating saw.
$299 seems to be a fair price for a 5-tool combo kit. I looked at some of our past combo kit deal posts, and $299 seems to be the target for 5-tool promo bundles.
Between now and June 30th, I’d expect to see a Deal of the Day on a Dewalt 4-tool or 5-tool combo kit, based on historical data. There was a Dewalt and Milwaukee deal last April, a Dewalt 4-tool combo kit deal last June at Amazon, and there was a Father’s Day-timed deal on a Dewalt 5-tool combo.
I don’t think there will be another Milwaukee combo kit deal, but there tend to be frequent “buy this tool kit, get something for free” promos.
