Over at Acme Tools they’re celebrating… the end of summer? with a Milwaukee Tool Flash Sale. Now through 8/23/2019, save 10% on select Milwaukee tool orders $249 or more. That’s also above the free shipping threshold, and so you’ll get free ground shipping on your order as well.
There are some exclusions, but not as many as you’d think. There are surprisingly few exclusions on Milwaukee cordless power tools, with most of the ineligible items being power tool accessories or price-fixed SKUs such as the Packout tool bags currently still on sale.
Check out the “what’s new” page – the promo is valid on all of the new Milwaukee releases and preorders that I checked.
The new Milwaukee M18 Fuel cordless brad nailer? This deal saves you nearly $28. The new Packout dolly? $9 off, if you meet the $249+ order threshold. The rear-handle saw? Yep, 10% off.
I checked the fine print, and there doesn’t seem to be a dollar limit as to how much you can save.
Update: We’re told that a $150 max discount will go into effect starting today (8/22) at around 2pm CST.
Coupon Code: MILWAUKEE10
Deal ends 8/23/2019.
Note: Last year and the year before, Acme Tools held “buy more and save more up to 15% off” Labor Day deals. There’s no guarantee that they’ll have the same promo again this year. You might want to wait to see what happens, but there are a couple of risks. First, with this 10% Flash Sale deal, new releases or preorders might sell well, meaning that waiting might push you down the list and lead to longer wait times. There’s also the chance that certain tools will be excluded from a hypothetical repeat Labor Day deal, but I would think this to be a low possibility. Third, there might be a different Labor Day promo this year.
If I wanted to put a tool to use immediately or be placed higher on a preorder fulfillment list, I’d order what I wanted now. If the potential for a greater discount was a higher priority and I could stand to wait, I might take the chance.
However, last year’s Labor Day promo had a max discount ceiling of $150. If you’re planning a large purchase, THIS is the better deal. If you’re planning say $2200 in new Milwaukee cordless power tools, Packout tool storage, and other equipment, this 10% off deal will save you $220. Last year’s Labor Day deal would have only saved you $150. If a similar promo runs this year, the max discount might be lower; there’s no guarantee it’ll be $150 like it was last year. Acme Tool’s March promo, for instance, had a max savings limit of $50.
