Black Friday 2019 has come early for anyone looking to buy a Milwaukee Packout tool box combo set.
Over at Acme Tools, they have a Packout combo set on sale for
$200, plus $30 special handling charge (presumably to offset shipping fees) $199 with free shipping!
This Milwaukee Packout tool box promo comes with a rolling tool box, large tool box with top and front handles, and a foam insert tool box that can be fitted to protect cordless power tools, hand tools, or other tools and equipment.
What sets this Acme Tools bundle apart from the deal at home centers and some other online dealers is that its small tool box has a foam insert, and the other typical promotional combo just has the empty small tool box.
If that foam insert box is worth it to you, and you don’t think you’ll be able to snag a promo stack locally (they have historically sold out fast at a lot of store locations), this promo might be a great buy.
Price: $200 plus $30 special handling due to the size and weight
Price: $199 with free shipping
Update (11/20/19): Acme Tools removed the $30 shipping fees.
The more “standard” Packout tool box 3-piece tool box combo is also on sale for $199.
Which Packout combo bundle to choose?
Well, that depends – do you want your small tool box to have a customizable foam insert, or not? The “standard” Packout tool box has a slightly smaller internal volume, giving up the space for the standard Packout roll-cage-like pull handles. So the choice is between a little extra impact protection (I guess?) and pull handles (or at least that’s what I use them for most), or a foam insert that can be cut and customized to fit your tools.
Update: Now that we’ve seen just how many “standard” combos are available at local Home Depot stores, there’s little chance of them selling out before you can buy one locally, if that’s what you want to do.
Tool Nut Has it Too – Correction: Tool Nut Had it Too
I checked Tool Nut to see what their pricing might be, and they are offering this Packout tool box combo AND the more traditional Packout combo, also at $200 each. And they also aren’t charging any special shipping or freight fees.
Update (11/20/19): Tool Nut’s product listings are currently down.
