Not sure where to start when it comes to building your collection of power tools for DIYs and home/auto maintenance? The Milwaukee 5-tool 12-V combo kit is a great combo set to try for under $200 (Reg. Price:$349). One Slickdealer said, “Got this set 3ish years ago for the same price during their Father’s Day sale. They’ve been used for automotive maintenance and around my home and I’m really impressed with them. I haven’t ever felt the need to go brushless.”
Black Friday tool sales will end up being a better deal than renting a tool for the weekend. For example, the RIDGID 7-Inch Table Top Tile Saw is on sale at Home Depot for $100 off. Considering that renting the same sized tile saw will cost you $53 per day, it might be worth it to buy one for keeps for $129 instead.

Are power tools really cheaper on Black Friday?

Power tools and home improvement equipment receive some of the biggest discounts during Black Friday, and the best time to pick up incredible bargains will be in November. If you are looking for quality power tools at an affordable price for your home projects, Black Friday is a perfect time. Power tools make great gifts for Father’s Day or as a birthday present for Dad, so stock up during Black Friday.

Where’s the best place to buy tools online during Black Friday?

You can’t go wrong with major retailers like Amazon, Lowe’s, Target, Home Depot and Walmart. These retailers will be competing for the best sales on power tools, so prices are generally similar. If you purchase tools from a retailer with a price match guarantee or a great return policy, you can buy now and request a price adjustment or return the item for a better price elsewhere.
