Any word yet of Home Depot's yearly 20% off Tool Sale? I am ready to get
one of the new Makita LXT tool combo sets + free cordless recip saw. I
got a chance to put one of the LXT drills in my hands and was very
impressed of it's balance and weight, felt like I was holding my old
Porter Cable 12 volt drill and the portable circular saw was light and
well balanced too.
Hmm, I do know of ONE HD 20% tool sale and that was at least 3 years
In fact, I JUST unpacked the Rigid planner that I bought at that time.
I think they have selected tools on sale at different times, but I
believe there ever was a repeat of that all tools 20% off.
In my area, HD and Lowes had 20% off sales (about 2 weeks before Christmas,
and only on portable power tools) the past two years. The year before that,
they had 10% off sale at around the same time. Menards usually had 2-3
different promotions during this time frame, between 10 and 20% off.
HD had a 40% off sale a few years ago when I picked up their Ridgid planer.
I got it for just over $200 including sales tax.
I have a feeling this will be a poor shopping season and the retailers will
have massive sales in February and March.
The 40% off was on clearance items only. The Ridgid planer happened to on
clearance for a new model at the time.
I got a killer deal on a pressure washer at the 40% off clearance. I paid
$300 for a $600 or $700 machine. It had been used and returned, but it
worked just fine. It ended up costing me about $400 total because the
hose, wand, and nozzles were gone. I could have had a lesser pressure
washer new for $400 but this one will last forever.
I'm sure they'll have it again this year--about 2 weeks before Xmas. I want
the Milwaukee heat gun they recently started carrying.
Also keep your eye on Amazon/Toolcrib. Last year, they offered 20% off ALL
portable power tools for the first day or two (the same time HD and Lowes
started their promotions), but then changed to 20% off only the portable
power tools that HD and Lowes sell.
