Here are all of the best Black Friday 2021 miter saw deals that we’ve found so far. There are a couple of others, but they aren’t good enough bargains to be included here. Please let us know if you find other miter saw deals!
For the second year in a row, there are slim pickings, and promo prices aren’t as low as they’ve been in the past. There are two options – buy now and request a price match if there are surprise Black Friday sales, or wait and see what comes out.
If you decide to wait, we usually expect to see Black Friday sales on miter saw and saw stand bundles.
Update 11/20: The Dewalt 12″ saw is down to $199. I also added several new deals at the end of the post.
Dewalt 12″ Single Bevel Miter Saw – $199
The Dewalt DWS715 miter saw is better suited for users who want a more compact and lighter saw without sacrificing too much cutting capacity. It features a 12″ blade size and can cut boards up to 2×8 at 90° and 2×6 at 45° with a single pass.
Dewalt DWS715 Miter Saw + Heavy Duty Miter Saw Stand – new SKU appeared – this could be a Black Friday flash sale bundle.
Metabo HPT 10″ Single Bevel Miter Saw – $99
This compact 10″ miter saw is a bit basic, but sometimes that’s all you need. Note: The price has been fluctuating a bit – try again later if you see a higher price.
Dewalt 12″ Sliding Miter Saw – $399
The Dewalt DWS779 is always a top seller every year for Black Friday, and it’s easy to see why – it offers great performance at a fantastic value. The DWS779 is significantly less expensive than Dewalt’s flagship DWS780 miter saw ($629 at Amazon), although it does give up some features.
Skil 10″ Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw – $250
This seems like a decent budget option. It has greater cutting capacity than non-sliding miter saws, and is both smaller and lighter than 12″ sliding miter saws – not to mention less expensive. The Skil also features an LED shadow light for setup purposes, which is surprising, as this feature is typically only found on more premium miter saws.
Ryobi 15A 10″ Sliding Miter Saw – $179
This Ryobi 10″ sliding miter saw is said to have 12″ cross-cut capacity. This model has many mostly-positive customer reviews, so be sure to read up on its pros and cons.
Bosch 10″ Dual Bevel Gliding Miter Saw – $549
The special gliding mechanism sets this Bosch saw apart from sliding miter saws, and it reduces the clearance space that’s required behind saw.
Bosch 12″ Dual Bevel Gliding Miter Saw – $599
Bosch’s 12″ axial-glide miter saw will also be on sale, starting on Thanksgiving Day.
Craftsman 7-1/4″ Miter Saw with Stand – $99
This Craftsman miter saw is a new addition for the 2021 holiday shopping season. It looks to be a very basic saw, but maybe that’s just what you’re looking for. Most users will probably be better off with the Metabo HPT deal at the same price.
More Black Friday 2021 Miter Saw Deals
Ryobi 18V Cordless 7-1/4″ Miter Saw – $99
Ryobi 7-1/4″ Compound Miter Saw – $119
Kobalt 10A 7-1/4″ Sliding Miter Saw – $129
Ridgid 12″ Dual Bevel Miter Saw – $279
Ridgid 12″ Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw – $399
Just a heads up – the Ryobi 18V is their standard fixed miter saw, not the slider. That one’s still $199.
Whoops – sorry, thank you!! *fixed*
Still a good price for a compact saw.
what about the new Ridgid saws?
My local HD had the previous non sliders on sale (how much so I’m not sure) and next to them were the 10 and 12 inch sliders.
Then down from that is their new double arm saw – that is the latest model. Now those I dont’ think were on sale and I’ve not seen a review on them so they are new new. but interesting.
anyway I looked for about 10 minutes on if I really needed the 12 inch non slider.
The new Ridgid ones with the double arms look like they’re just a Delta Cruzer painted orange instead of blue. Since it has an LED shadow cut line, it’s likely a clone of their Gen 2 version. I wasn’t terribly impressed with my first gen Delta Cruzer, but they did make some upgrades between Gen 1 and Gen 2.
My Delta had a curved fence that was not adjustable to a flat 90 degrees to the blade. One of the HD reviews for a Ridgid showed the identical issue.
I saw just (1) Ridgid style at my local Home Depot store, and am still looking into it. I’ll add it to the post shortly – thank you!
It looks like Ridgid completely overhauled their entire benchtop tool and machinery lineup. I’ve been trying to get more information, but there’s not a lot out there yet.
I can confirm that it seems Delta is the OEM for most if not all of the new equipment.
Way better deal if you’re looking at the Ryobi.
Real deal or a scammer?
Direct tools is a real business that’s been around for many years.
They are an official reseller of TTI branded items (ryobi, ridgid, hart, etc.).
They are online and brick and mortar stores.
It’s better to be cautious than take risks. https://toolguyd.com/ryobi-tools-scam-store/
They’re also not a reseller, they’re TTI North America’s outlet store, presumably for overstock or blemished products they can’t sell at Home Depot.
This is the outlet store.
I know you won’t want to because it would take forever, but…
Looking through a lot of forums and previous deals on slickdeals will show that the “Factory Blemished” is a way to bypass contracts with home depot and allow them to sell as “new” in their own stores without getting into legal trouble. Tools marked as Factory blemished have always come in just as good of condition and in full factory packages as any new tool you would buy at home depot.
They also sell refurbished items for less. They will generally have scratches and wear from prior users. Refurbished is clearly marked on the page.
If you have a brick and mortar location nearby, you can return it there without the shipping fees and 20% fee.
Good to know – thank you!
Unfortunately, they don’t have nay stores near me, or I might have checked them out a while ago.
I’ve been to one a couple of times- very hit or miss regarding stock. The one I’ve been to tends to mostly carry ridgid and ryobi with some other misc TTI brands.
Factory Blemish can also be due to some part of the tool or packaging failing some insignificant part of quality control. You might never even know. Something like an incorrect user manual, or misworded warranty card. It’s often cheaper for them to sell them “as-is” at a discount.
I’ve been to one of these. It’s fairly close to me. They have lots of Ryobi stuff and it looks like there’s nothing wrong with it. The problem seems to be it’s mostly old models and corded stuff. Any new models they may have, are only about 20% off and for that you get a reduced 30-day guarantee. For those, you can probably do better at a HD, Amazon, etc. sale. For these reasons, I never bought anything there. If you were looking for a disposable beater tool, this might just be the ticket!
Direct Tools Outlet CAN be a very good deal, but you have to be careful – sometimes their prices are the same or higher than HD.
A lot of tools can be delivered, but some deals (sometimes it seems like >50%, or most of the great deals) are in-store only. Since I don’t have a store close, I filter those out.
Also, sometimes I can get unique Ryobi items that don’t seem to make it to my local HD (or are no longer available there).
I’ve been waiting for the DEWALT 779 to drop further, it’s been 399 for more than a year, fingers crossed this black friday
I’m keeping an eye on it.
I think it could be discounted further, hence the note in the intro section, but there were also long spans where readers reporting not being able to buy any miter saws of certain styles at all.
High demand + supply constraints + shipping shortages might be affecting things, but we’ll see.
I’m hoping HD will offer the Ridgid miter saw stand for 100 bucks like they did last year. It was only offered for about a day just before Black Friday and I missed it!
I bought the MSUV for $120 over the summer. So I would expect a price closer to that this black Friday.
Just was at HD, it appears none of the miter saws are including a free stand like they have in previous years. Though while I was there I picked up 2 of the dewalt organizers, 7pc husky pick set, and the ridgid 18g brad nailer and 16g finish nailer combo. Good set for $170!!!!
I picked up the DWS779 when I got laid off and sold a lot of things including the Kapex. I added the light kit that turns it into a 780. The Dewalt ain’t no beauty, the rails are not slick and smooth, there is no soft start and etc. However: it performs. I have not once considered replacing it with anything else since. Eventually I’ll pick up the best fence system tailor made for the Dewalt stand.
Best fence system? Is that the product name?
FYI I have purchased several (~10) “factory blemished” tools from direct tools and they have all appeared to be 100% factory new. Complete sealed retail packaging, literature, accessories, etc. with a small “factory blemished sticker” sometimes added to one corner (about 50% of the time).
Granted they were all ridgid tools, but they were all granted the lifetime service agreement with no trouble .
I would guess they are contractually obligated to not undersell their primary retailer (home depot), and as such are not legally allowed to post tools as “new” at certain prices.
My experience too with a factory blem drill press. While not perfect, it was within the norm for a mass-produced Chinese tool. I didn’t find any unresolvable functional or cosmetic problems.
I wonder if the DWA779 will stay at the same price but they will include a stand for an actual Black Friday deal.
I’m holding out for a deal on the big bosch. Big downsize this year has moved that one from “want” to “need”.
I look at the factory direct tool spot in the outlet store mall near me. I’ve never been compelled to buy anything from there but they have decent prices. They do sometimes have Ridgid stuff on the shelf which I used to find surprising.
but they have some other things in the store too. It’s worth a walk though but I often don’t find a deal that is superior to anything I can find on line once I also pay sales tax here. One day that will change I bet.
I’m not sure what to make of the $530 price on the DWS780 that JBTools has been promoting:
I don’t think that I’ve bought from them in the past – as they seem to be more aligned to automotive tools – mostly outside of my wheelhouse. They seem to get some mixed reviews on Garage Journal – but mostly positive reviews on Trust Pilot – but I can’t vouch for them
The DWS780 had been $499 at Lowes throughout the month of August….
Welcome to inflation – Lowes wants $629 for it – like most others
While I have a Bosch GCM12SD on a gravity rise stand – getting it up into the pickup is a real bear. If I were to buy a saw today – I think that Dewalt 780 might be it. The 9 pounds extra (65 for the Bosch, versus 56 for the Dewalt 780) may not seem like much – but the older I get the more it seems to matter
Lowe’s has the DeWalt 779 with a stand for 399. Just bought it
Thanks! I’ll keep an eye on it.
Dewalt DWS779 at Lowes
I see $449 and $499 depending on the store, but not $399 yet. Their other deals have gone live here though, so I don’t know what’s going on with their website.
I found some stores with $399, but none close by. If I try to order from them and select free shipping, it bumps the price up to the $449.
My store was selling the 799 for $399 before closing Wednesday. The bump to $449 is specific to the “free” stand.
Any thoughts on whether Lowes would agree to refund the $50 if I buy online and go in Friday to ask?
I really don’t know – I had a frustrating time at a Lowe’s store today just getting them to honor pricing on the shelf and 6-foot banner that was right near checkout.
It’s possible this will be a Black Friday flash sale item. There will be other miter saw deals at other retailers as well. My local Home Depot has new displays up, but I don’t know if it will be a new flash sale or they put it there because they ran out of the Black Friday saws.
Yeah. It is now showing at 449 for my store. I snagged it last night at 399 with stand. Not sure why they changed their pricing.
That’s interesting that the price changed for you. They may have initially set them all to $399 online and then applied regional policies.
I went to my store 15 mins before closing last night and spoke w the employee who was putting up the sign advertising the free stand. He had also just put a new price sticker on the saw changing it to $449. So I know that’s their intent for my store for Friday morning.
The sticker says the price is only effective from 11/26, so my plan was to check at midnight tonight for it to go live online, not last night.
Sounds like there may have been a window of opportunity just at midnight.
The dws780 ($630) + rolling stand ($240) at HD is not bad deal ($750), considering the current prices. I used a 10% coupon to get to $675. I swear I’ve seen it for $600 in the past, but maybe I’m wrong
