Reader Chris gave us a heads up on a great deal over at International Tool. Right now you can buy a Milwaukee M18 Fuel Combo and get a free extra tool or 2-pack of batteries – and we’re talking about the latest high capacity 5.0Ah battery packs that sells for $200!
The promoted 2897-22 combo – the same as in this Home Depot promo – includes a 2704-20 M18 Fuel hammer drill with side handle, a 2753-20 M18 Fuel 1/4″ impact driver, two M18 RedLithium XC5.0 batteries, the standard dual-voltage charger, and hard carrying case.
- M18 Compact Blower ($79)
- M18 Hackzall Recip Saw ($99)
- M18 Fuel Sawzall Body ($179)
- M18 Fuel 4-1/2″ Grinder Body ($169)
- 2-pack M18 RedLithium XC5.0 Batteries ($199)
The tools that you can get for free keep changing. For example, yesterday Stuart saw the LED flood light, M12 bandsaw kit, M18 right angle drill, and rapid charge station in place of what’s currently listed.
Stuart’s Note: The price yesterday was also $349. $400 is still a great deal for this kit plus a free brushless bonus tool or 2-pack of XC batteries! There was a slightly better Black Friday deal, but it appears to be long over.
Of course if you could use the extra batteries, the best value is the M18 Fuel Combo Kit plus 2 more XC5.0 RedLithium batteries for a total of $400. Not too bad. To sweeten the pot, most items over $99 are shipped free! Just to verify this item was included, I added it to my cart and estimated the shipping costs. Sure enough flat rate and UPS ground shipping was free.
If you compare this to a previous Home Depot Deal this 2015 holiday season, the same M18 Fuel kit was $400 plus a $150 discount if you bought another eligible tool. The least expensive eligible add-on item is now $59, making the combo at Home Depot $308 after discount, including the add-on tool or accessory.
Thanks to Chris for the heads-up!
P.S. If you have shopped at International Tool before, could you please comment about your experiences? Thanks!
