Home Depot has once again starting carrying what looks to be an exclusive-to-them Milwaukee M18 cordless lithium ion drill/driver kit. The kit (2601-21) is priced at $99 and comes with the drill, a single 1.5Ah compact battery pack, a multi-voltage charger, and carrying case.
This is a special buy, so there’s no telling how long these kits will be available for. My guess is that they were released for Labor Day, and will be made available again in late-November just in time for the holiday shopping season. (This kit first appeared last year around Black Friday, and was included in our $99 drill kit roundup.)

If red isn’t your favorite color, Makita’s single-battery 18V drill/driver kit is also available. And if you’re more of a black-and-yellow kind of guy or gal, Dewalt’s 18V 1/2″ NiCd drill kit is $99 once again at Amazon, Home Depot, and Lowes. If you ask me, the Li-ion single-battery kits are better buys.
These kits are available online and ship for free, and you can also order them for free in-store pickup. My local store had 22-24 of these in-stock.
As a reminder, these are single battery kits. It’s a great way to buy into Milwaukee’s phenomenal M18 cordless power tool platform for under $100.
