Lowes Canada Freebie: Free Battery (Up To $130 Value) With Purchase Of Select Cordless Combo Kits & Tools

Are you ready for a major freebie? The “Free Battery Cordless Tool Event” is currently on at Lowe’s and you guessed it… you can get a free battery with any cordless combo kits and select tools! Plus, shipping is also sure to be free for all off these! Keep reading to find out more. Lowes Canada Freebie: Free Battery (Up To $130 Value) With Purchase Of Select Cordless Combo Kits & Tools

During this event, you can either get a free battery with purchase of any DeWalt or Porter Cable cordless combo kit or with purchase of select Hitachi, Bosh and Kobalt tools. To make it easier for you, I have broken it down into the kind of savings you can expect to see when you get:

DeWALT

  • $249 20V max lithium ion compact drill/ driver & impact driver combo kit: free $89.99 value battery
  • $169 12/20V max charger radio: free $89.99 value battery
  • $229 18V cordless compact drill/ impact driver combo kit: free $129 value battery
  • $499 18V worksite charger/ radio: free $129 value battery
  • + free battery with any cordless combo kit

Porter-Cable

  • $169 20V max li-ion drill-driver and impact driver combo kit: free $79.99 value battery
  • $269 4-tool 20V li-ion cordless combo kit: free $79.99 value battery
  • + free battery with any cordless combo kit

Bosh

  • $199 2-tool 18V li-ion drill-driver cordless combo kit: free $89.99 value battery
  • $249 18V 1/2-in cordless variable speed brushless impact driver with soft case: free $89.99 value battery

Kobalt

  • $179 4-tool 18V motor li-ion cordless combo kit: free $59.99 value battery

Hitachi

  • $249 1/2-in 18V variable speed cordless hammer drill: free $119 value battery
  • $259 3-tool 18V li-ion cordless combo kit: free $79.99 value battery

Keep in mind that all of the initial prices that you see are those for the combo kit or tools in question and these are actually all on sale as well.

Given that Dewalt is widely considered as being one of the best brands in the field of repairs and construction, I searched for the very first combo kit on the list above, the Dewalt 20V max lithium ion compact drill/ driver & impact driver combo kit. Lowe’s has it on sale for $249, down from the original retail price of $299. To be fair, Amazon.ca actually has it slightly cheaper for just $241.22 but it’s the fact that Lowe’s throws in a free battery that makes it all worth it. For anyone who frequently uses their cordless drill, an extra battery can certainly make all the difference. Heck, even for a personal project, it can make all the difference as there is nothing worse than setting out to either start or complete a project only to be stalled by a dead battery!

NewEgg.ca: Save up to 30% ($30) on Select 2.5″ and 3.5″ Internal HDDs

NewEgg.ca: Save up to 30% ($30) on Select 2.5 and 3.5 Internal HDDs

Mo’ storage, less money. That’s the deal that NewEgg Canada is bringing you! If your hard drive is feeling a little cramped lately,  read on! Even if it isn’t, you should still continue reading, it’s a pretty good deal.

There are two hard drives on sale here. Check them out.

Doesn’t seem like you see very many deals on internal hard drives anymore. Generally you see a lot more external drives. I suspect this is because most systems are being shipped with fairly large hard drives to begin with. Most people never really need to upgrade their storage and if they do need more storage it’s more of an archival thing so they buy external drives and stack them in a closet somewhere until they need to get that old document or the Christmas pictures from five years ago. Nevertheless, there are tons of reasons to get another hard drive.

Before I continue, one note about the drives themselves: I’ve had one Hitachi drive go bad and the RMA process was great. Fast and super. No hassle.

I’m an advocate of having spare parts laying around in case your computer dies at 3:00AM on a Sunday morning and you need to get it back up and running. A hard drive is definitely an essential spare part to have around the house. I’d even install an operating system and all your essential programs and drivers on one that way you can pop it in and boot from it immediately.
