The 15 Best Black Friday Sales on Tools, DIY Gear, and More
Black Friday savings are here, and you can find them on much more than just TVs and tech. Strategic homeowners and DIYers (like ourselves) are now scouting weekend sales at home improvement retailers like The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, and more for deals that’ll benefit their to-do lists.
Power tools, supplies, and even appliances are on sale this weekend. This makes Black Friday the perfect time to purchase things you may need for upcoming home projects, from around-the-house maintenance to full-room renovations.
See and shop the most notable tool deals that will power you through those projects as well as sales on supplies for your next reno.
Free DeWalt Power Tool with 20 V Max Lithium-Ion Starter Kit at The Home Depot for $199 (Save $193+)
The “starter kit” itself features a 6.0Ah battery, a 4.0Ah battery, a 4 Amp charger, and a soft tool bag, combined at a 15-percent markdown for Black Friday. But the cherry on top is the free bare tool, valued at $159 to $230. Choose from 16 options, ranging from a jobsite speaker to a bandsaw—while supplies last.
DeWalt 20 V Max 10-Tool Cordless Combo Kit with 20-Volt 2.0Ah Batteries at The Home Depot for $599 (Save $350)
Typically premium-priced, we’ve recommended the DeWalt 10-Tool Combo Kit as a great power tool set for handy folks who want to switch out several tools at once or simply kickstart their tool collection. The comprehensive set features a reciprocating saw, circular saw, drill/driver, impact driver, grinder, oscillating tool, and blower—plus equally important garage accessories including a work light, wet/dry vacuum, and speaker. More than 1,000 shoppers at The Home Depot would agree that the bundle offers a lot of value, particularly at Black Friday’s low price.
Ryobi ONE+ 18 V Cordless 6-Tool Combo Kit with Batteries and Charger at The Home Depot for $199 (Save $100)
Another bundle deal that we’re excited to see this holiday is on Ryobi tools. This line tends to be more budget-friendly even at full price and remains a decently reliable brand for cordless tools. (We’ve tested a number of them!) While it might not be a pro’s first choice, this six-tool combo—with a 1/2-inch drill/driver, 1/4-inch impact driver, reciprocating saw, 5-1/2-inch circular saw, multi-tool, and LED light—will suit a beginner or a homeowner who simply wants to be prepared.
Bosch 12 V Max Cordless Power Tools Combo Kit on Amazon for $92.85 (Save $86.15)
Two go-to power tools for less than $99? Yes, please! The Bosch Power Tool Combo Kit offers an affordable way to add a new ⅜-inch drill and ¼-inch impact driver with two batteries, a 30-minute charger, and a soft carrying case to your tool collection. The drill is almost identical to one that we tested when reviewing cordless drills and liked for its compact size—extremely easy to maneuver in even tighter spots.
Klein Tools 93LCLS Laser Level on Amazon for $149.97 (Save $86.40)
It’s technically not a power tool, but it is a great tech upgrade to your standard bubble level. This professional-grade laser from Klein Tools ticks most of the boxes we look for in a quality laser level and performed well in testing—all for a more modest price than our top pick. The Klein Tools 93LCLS has both vertical and horizontal beams, but it also features a plumb-spot finder that projects above and below the level, which can be a real asset when installing conduit, piping, or drop ceilings. We only wish that it offered a 360-degree beam, but can overlook this drawback when it’s on sale.
