I visited my local Home Depot store today, to see if they had any new special buys or potential Black Friday 2019 tool deals on the sales floor. Here’s what we know and can predict so far about Home Depot’s Black Friday 2019 tool deals.
In one of the end caps, something caught my eye – a Milwaukee M18 cordless oscillating multi-tool kit (2626-21CP) with a $99 price tag.
Wait a moment – the bare tool, 2626-20, sells for $119 by itself…
This kit comes with the Milwaukee cordless oscillating multi-tool, charger, kit bag, and (1) Li-ion battery, all for $99.
A four-word phrase comes to mind – Black Friday special buy.
I’ve never seen this promotional kit before, and from a Google search it looks like it hasn’t been on the internet for very long. This is probably a counter by Milwaukee, given how popular Dewalt’s $99 cordless multi-tool promo kit was last year.
It features a tool-free blade change interface, variable speed dial, on/off switch, 11,000 to 18,000 OPM, and LED worklight.
It’s kitted with Milwaukee’s standard M18/M12 multi-voltage charger, (1) 1.5Ah battery, kit bag, and a single cutting blade.
Value-wise, this is a really good deal. The 2-battery kit is typically $319, as it comes with XC batteries, and as mentioned the bare tool is priced at $119.
I can’t find any references to Black Friday or Holiday pricing online, but the in-store $99 pricing sticker seems to be a very reliable clue. And, since Dewalt’s promo kit will be on sale for $99 again this year, it makes sense that Milwaukee would match that deal.
Which is the better deal, Milwaukee’s or Dewalt’s? Both are good tools, although they’re both a little long in the tooth now, unchanged since my best cordless oscillating multi-tool roundup from a few years ago.
I almost bought this Milwaukee multi-tool promo on the spot, it’s that good of a deal. It might still prove to be too good of a deal for me to pass up.
My gut instinct says that this will near-definitely be a Black Friday special. A couple of online retailers are listing it for $129 right now, and some have place-holder listings.
At the time of this posting, Home Depot has an online price of $199.
If you ask me, this will be one of the best deals of the 2019 holiday shopping season.
Expected Deal Price: $99
