What would be a holiday shopping season without power tool accessory deals?
While we’ve been burned by lower quality drill and screwdriver bit sets in the past, these promo packs can be a great way to get a broad accessory selection for your money. But you have to look closely at what you’re getting.
Do you need a box of #2 Phillips bits, or were you more interested in variety?
Did you want more 1″ screwdriver bits, which typically work in conjunction with bit holders and extensions? Or do you have greater need for power bits that work directly in impact drivers and drill chucks without the need for an adapter?
Looking for drill bits without a catch? Check out our discussion on the best USA-made general purpose drill bits on a budget.
Dewalt Drilling and Driving Bit Sets
This 135pc set, priced at $29.88, has a little bit of everything – except for impact-rated screwdriver bits.
There are a couple of smaller sets as well, each priced at $14.88.
This set is all about the common construction bits – Phillips, Square, Torx, and Slotted.

Lastly, there’s a 40pc drill and screwdriver bit set.
Bosch Daredevil Spade Bits
There’s a rather appealing Bosch 14pc Daredevil spade bit set, for $20.
These bits are quite good, and getting 14 of them for $20 seems to be a very good deal. There aren’t any duplicates either – you get a full range of sizes, from 1/4″ to 1-1/2″.
Milwaukee Shockwave Drill and Screwdriver Bit Deals
As we discussed after Milwaukee’s media event, Milwaukee has come out with a completely new line of Shockwave impact-rated screwdriver bits and drill bits. From what we’ve seen, these new bits are quite good.
This 35pc Milwaukee Shockwave impact-rated screwdriver and nutdriver bit set looks to be a well-rounded set of bits.
It’s priced at around $18, which seems to be okay for what you get.
For a couple of dollars more, you get 11 more bits, including another nutdriver size, although you lose out on the 2 longer power bits included in the previous set.
It’s priced at $19.88.
It looks like this Milwaukee 18pc Shockwave impact-rated drill bit set comes with the new RedHelix drill bits that really impressed us at Milwaukee’s media event.
Like the above screwdriver bit set, this one’ll set you back $19.88.
Ryobi Drilling and Driving Bit Sets
There was a promo display of Ryobi’s new Dock-it power tool accessory storage system that we recently talked about, but with one big difference.
This set comes with a drilling and driving bit set, and the wall-mountable Dock-it storage shelf, and also a free spade bit set.
So for $20, you get the 56pc bit set, and an extra 11pc brad and spade bit woodworking drilling set.
Buy Now(Similar Driver Bit Set via Home Depot)
This drill and driving kit comes with 101 pieces, for only $14.88. The drill bits all looked to be smallish sizes, and the screwdriver bit selection is reasonably broad. There are Phillips, slotted, square, Torx, and hex bits.
Lastly, there’s a bit set that look like it’s most fitting to accompany a cordless drill present. Just like you can’t give a toy with batteries, you shouldn’t give someone a cordless drill without a couple of starter drill and driving bits.
It’s just $9.88.
Diablo Reciprocating Saw Blades
Buy this pack of 6 Diablo reciprocating saw blades, get 4 more for free. Plus there’s a handy storage case. This looks to be a decent assortment of blades, from a top-notch brand, for about $15.
I looked around a little bit, and couldn’t find anything close to what you get here for this price.
Avanti Circular Saw Blades
These 2-packs of Avanti Pro 7-1/4″ 24T circular saw blades look to be a great deal. You essentially get 2 blades for the price of 1, $7.88.
Speed Out Screw Extractor Set
Nothing says “I love you” like a set of screw extractors.
I can’t tell if these are the same product, but it looks like these Speed Out extractors are a lot cheaper over at Amazon.
I’ll say this in as nice a way as possible: I wouldn’t touch these HDX drill bit or driving bit sets.
The HDX drill bit set gives you 35 drill bits for $4.88. That’s about 7 per dollar.
This 51pc screwdriver bit set for $4.88, while not as crazy-sounding, is probably going to have the lowest quality bits out of any set or brand you can find at Home Depot.
Makita Impact Gold
I reviewed Makita’s Impact Gold screwdriver bits a couple of years ago, and liked them a lot.
$13 is a great price, but you can find the same set for a little cheaper at Amazon.
