Lowe’s Canada: $25 off $100+ with Visa Checkout & $10 Off $100 Coupon – Total $35 Discount

Posted by on July 9, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Lowes Canada: $25 off $100+ with Visa Checkout & $10 Off $100 Coupon   Total $35 Discount

We are back with another Visa Checkout promotion! Lowe’s Canada is offering $25 off orders of $100 or more when you pay through Visa Checkout. On top of this sweet offer, there is a $10 off $100 coupon code that can be combined with the Visa Checkout promotion. Together, you get $35 off $100!

Visa Checkout is simple and I expect most of our Moosers have already signed up. If not, sign up is easy and you only have to do it once. Then you can use Visa Checkout at whichever store you like. This offer does exclude previous sales, purchase of services, gift cards, or GE Café products. It also cannot be combined with Buy More, Save More on Major Appliances or other promotional codes.

Yet, it can be combined with the wonderful Scratch n’ Save event now on. The actual ‘scratch n’ save’ part is available in store. For only shoppers, you simply get a coupon code for $10 off $100.

  • Coupon Code: SS10
  • Discount: $10 off $35
  • Expiry: 15th July 2015

This is the one exception to the ‘no combining’ rule. When you combine this coupon with the Visa Checkout, “the $25 discount will automatically be combined with the Scratch & Save $10 as a $35 discount at checkout.” This brings your grand total discounts up to $35 off $100!

Your job is now to save your money wisely! There are plenty of sale items at Lowe’s to combine with the above two discounts. I found the Up to $100 off BBQs section especially inviting. This Master Forge 3-Burner (36,000 BTU) BBQ is my pick of the entire stock. The BBQ was $229 and is now on sale for $159. With Visa Checkout and the coupon code above, your new Barbeque is only going to cost $124. This barbeque qualifies for free parcel shipping (big bonus) and is highly rated with 120 reviews! One reviewer said:

The triple burner is great to use. You can use two of them to heat with and cook on the side to prevent burning food and flame flaring

In the tool sale, this ProSteel 48-in x 26.6-in Red 5-Drawer Friction Steel Tool Cabinet looks attractive. I always wanted to buy my Dad one of these to help clean up the garage. Originally $179, the tool cabinet is on sale for $119. Use the above promotions to bring this cabinet down to $84! This product does not qualify for parcel shipping, thus you will need to pick up in store or pay for shipping.

Leatherman New Wave Multi Tool Was $121 | Now $60 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 16, 2015 at 8:49 AM

Leatherman New Wave Multi Tool Was $121 | Now $60 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

I got excited when I saw this sale price today, as I do not see Leatherman Multi Tools go on sale very often. Right now, you can snag your own Leatherman New Wave multi-tool that was $120.96 but is now only $59.99. Make sure to pick the version sold from and you will receive free super saver shipping also.

Have you ever used one of these Leatherman multi-tool sets? They really quite dreamy and keep you from running to the toolbox all the time. This tool has all of the basics for most everyday repairs combined into one compact tool that can fit into your pocket. A Leatherman multi-tool has the functionality of an upgraded pocketknife, but with several more features that are important. This is the perfect gift for anyone handy, who loves DIY projects or likes to camp or participate in other outdoor sports like fishing. This particular Leatherman includes:

  • Pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Locking knives
  • Saw
  • Phillips, eyeglass and flat head screwdriver
  • Scissors
  • Wire strippers
  • Can opener
  • Leather holder

Leatherman is known for making quality tools that last. Here is one reviewer who reinforces just how fantastic this multi-tool is from

Leatherman New Wave Multi Tool Was $121 | Now $60 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

I found this Leatherman tool available at for $89.50. also sells this same Leatherman multi-tool for $89.99. Canadian Tire sells this same multi-tool for $99.99. This is an excellent price for this Leatherman tool, as these prices do not drop often.

When I got married, we gave Leatherman multi-tools as a thank you gift to our groomsmen and both fathers. We budgeted carefully for this and ended up paying full price for this gift. Years later (we will just say less than ten to preserve my youth) every one of the people we have gifted those Leatherman multi-tools to still uses them. Just a few weeks ago, we saw a dear friend who was in our wedding that we have not seen in several years. When he pulled out his wallet at one point, his Leatherman multi-tool also made its way to the table.

This is a gift that is built to last. If you still need a gift for Father’s Day, most Dads I know would appreciate this handy tool. That includes my own! Best of all, this gift will last. Leatherman has a fantastic warranty on their product to ensure it lasts up to 25 years with regular use. This price is hot for an item that you just do not see go on sale very often.

Today Only! Porter Cable 3 Tool 18Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Kit Was $279 | Now $111 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 11, 2015 at 10:46 AM

Today Only! Porter Cable 3 Tool 18Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Kit Was $279 | Now $111 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

Someone must have sent Lowes Canada a text and reminded them Father’s Day  is coming up. The Porter Cable 3 Tool 18 Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Combo kit was $279, but now you can grab it for only $111. Free parcel shipping is also included with this deal.

I am horrible at remembering holidays. I usually have a general idea that a holiday or birthday is coming up, but do not expect me to tell you the date without scrambling for my phone. Thank goodness I have computers to remind me now. Before my cell phone, I would often buy a gift then hide it, but sometimes I would still miss the holiday accidentally.

If you still need a gift for Father’s Day, or just need a few new replacement tools now is the time to jump. Lowe’s Canada has this set of three Porter Cable lithium ion tools today available and the price is similar to what you would pay for half of this kit. Included are the following tools:

  • 18-volt Lithium Ion Drill/Driver
  • 18-volt Lithium Ion ¼ Hex Impact Driver
  • Reciprocating saw
  • Two 18-volt lithium ion batteries
  • Charger
  • Saw blade for cutting wood, 6 inches
  • Bag to store all the tools
  • #2 Philips drill bit and double-ended drill bit

Amazon Canada Price Comparison

At Amazon Canada, the Porter impact drill and driver by themselves cost $158.18. To add the reciprocating saw will cost you $63.99. That puts your total for all three tools at $222.17 but does not include the bag. You could pick up the saw and driver with a bag for $139. To buy the impact driver separately, it will cost $163.85. That puts your total for all three tools including the bag at $302.85.

Home Depot Canada Price Comparison

Home Depot does not carry many of the Porter Cable line of tools. I did find a Milwaukee four tool lithium-ion combo set that includes a drill, impact driver, saw, bag and light made by Milwaukee for $199.


Reviews look awesome. Overall most buyers are happy with this purchase. There are very few negative comments. Here is one review:

I work in construction & have tried all the big guns. I can honestly say that this set is a great buy. The drills blow all my others away & I am talking Bosch, Milwaukee, De-Walt. The double capacity battery lasted 3 days using off & on 8hrs per day, very impressive. Comes with a very durable bag too, not some cheaply made garbage.

Quick grab this set now, this deal is only good for today.  This is a great starter kit for someone who does DIY projects, a cheap way to replace failing tools or just a nice gift.

5 Drawer Tool Tower With Bulk Storage Was $80 | Now $48 (FS @ $50) @

Posted by on May 27, 2015 at 11:00 AM

5 Drawer Tool Tower With Bulk Storage Was $80 | Now $48 (FS @ $50) @

Quick Bargainmoosers, the 5 drawer Tool Tower with Bulk Storage just dropped in price at Walmart Canada. This large tool cabinet was $80 but has now dropped to only $48. This deal will probably not stay in stock long!

My husband’s tools are a wreck in the basement. He has a bench, and few shelves and several tool boxes, but good luck finding anything. When we first got together, I had my own set of screwdrivers. I tried for a long time to keep them separated so I could do basic repairs around the house. I have had to let go of that. I have no idea where those screwdrivers are now.

If you are in a similar spot, you should grab this tool tower today from Walmart. This tool bench includes five separate drawers to organize all of your smaller tools, screws, and other items to repair your home. This also has a bulk storage bin to keep larger items such as a power drill. This storage container is 22 inches across and 36 inches tall once assembled.

Around the web, tool storage drawers are much more expensive than this tower. The most inexpensive tool storage I could find similar in size was at Home Depot Canada, the International 5 drawer Combo with Storage Compartment for $99.  At I found a Toolmaster 5-Drawer Tool Chest Combo that is retailing for $149.99. Over at Canadian Tire, the cheapest tower I could find that was similar in size is a Mastercraft for $269.99.

I would not expect this tool storage box to hold everything in you garage. It will do the trick for an at home enthusiast who needs to organize a bit. The reviews all seem to reflect this sentiment. Here is one happy reviewer who is using this tool tower.

Tool cabinet was everything I expected. I am not using it as my main storage but as a secondary storage unit for misc. tools and it works fine. Assembly was easy and instructions clear.

Here is another happy reviewer who is glad they bought this tool tower:

It is not a professional toolbox, but regardless it does the job of keeping your tools organized just the same as a more expensive one! I am so glad I bought it…now all my tools are in one place and easy to find! It was so worth it for the price.

I do not expect this price to last long Bargainmoosers, so grab yours quick if you want one. Shipping is free if you spend $50. You can also have it shipped to a Canadian Post location for free, if you wish. Save yourself the hassle and throw a box of Oreos in your cart as a filler to qualify for free shipping. These Oreos were $3.97 but are now $2.98. Your tool chest and Oreos will be headed to your house soon.

May 13 Black & Decker Dual Temperature Heat Gun Only $20 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on May 13, 2015 at 10:32 AM Black & Decker Dual Temperature Heat Gun Only $20 (FS @ $25) has discounted the Black & Decker Dual Temperature Heat Gun from $62.27 down to $19.99. While I think this ‘original’ price is a bit of a stretch, this is the cheapest price I could find this heat gun for online.

Finding this Black & Decker heat gun in Canada was difficult. The only other place in Canada that had the gun was Walmart, and they are selling it for $29.94. I checked out Lowes Canada, but their closest option was the HomeRight Dual Temperature Heat Gun for $24.99. It is not the same brand and it is not a brand I recognize either.

I turned to the USA for a little price checking. At Home Depot I found the same heat gun for $29.97 USD. also has the same heat gun for $34.99 USD. Given that our exchange rate adds on around 20% onto each of those prices, I figured that the deal at Amazon Canada was well worth blogging about.

The Black & Decker HG1300 Dual Temperature Heat Gun has 2 temperature settings: 750 degrees and 1000 degrees. I may be a carpenter’s daughter, but it does not mean I am familiar with all tools. Thus, I had to look up what a heat gun can do, as my father never used them. Evidently, the heat gun can be used for stripping paint and varnish, loosening rusted nuts and bolts, thaw frozen pipes, and quick dry most anything. I would think it could also melt anything you need as well.

I like that it has two different temperatures. I am sure that different jobs call for more or less heat. If you live in a snowy climate, this can have all kinds of uses as well related to ice and snow. Being a prairie girl, I immediately thought that this gun would be great for thawing out your car’s keyhole when one of those brutal driving rains and then freezing create an ice buildup in your lock.

The heat gun has a built-in stand that you prop the gun up on so it can cool down faster. The heat gun is fairly lightweight and compact. It also looks to have a very comfortable grip for prolonged use. True to Black & Decker colours, the body is orange with black accents.

5 Drawer Tool Chest & Cabinet Combo Was $120 now $40 @! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 25, 2015 at 11:38 AM

5 Drawer Tool Chest & Cabinet Combo Was $120 now $40 @! (EXPIRED)

Nice deal incoming! This 5 Drawer Tool Chest & Cabinet Combo with Storage Riser has currently got a hot price at Walmart Canada’s online store. Originally priced at $119.97, you can pick it up right now for only $40!

While it’s a great discounted price on this red tool chest, it’s such a shame that Walmart don’t offer free shipping on any order, any more. Alas, you will have to pay shipping fees on this item! I believe shipping is $4.97 – that might vary depending on where you live. Even so, that’s still a really reasonable price including shipping for this type of tool chest.

Free Shipping?

But wait – Walmart offer free shipping to your home on any order of $50 or more, so it’s probably worth topping your order up to that amount. Spend $10 on nappies… soup… anything you can find. You’ll get free Canadian shipping to your home, on the entire order. Hit up Walmart’s clearance section too – there are always great deals in there.

Price Comparison

While it’s difficult to compare prices elsewhere for this type of thing as it is unbranded, I’ve given it a shot. This very similar chest from Canadian Tire is $170, this one is $80 @ Sears, this one is $112 @ Lowes, this one is $199 @ Northern Tool. It’s a very sweet price from Walmart.

Get It Quick

I have a feeling this will go out of stock very fast – get in now if you are interested.

Tidy Homes

A tool chest like this is a must for any home where DIY is practiced… my partner is terrible with his tools. He does have a tool box but inevitably, not all his tools fit in it and there are screwdrivers lying all over the house. Sometimes I think they’re multiplying…

Canadian Freebie: 3M VHB Tape

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Canadian Freebie: 3M VHB Tape

Right now, 3M is giving away a free sample of the 3M VHB Tape. This tape is tough and designed to replace screws and hold up to weather conditions. Snag your free sample with 3M before they are gone!

When you fill out the form, this sample asks for your contact information along with your company name. 3M does state that they intend to fulfil this sample for commercial samples. I always write that I am an independent contractor, which I am on the side. After you submit your information, the website does mention on the page after you submit that a 3M representative will be contacting you within seven business days. I suspect you will receive either an e-mail or a brochure in the mail. I did not receive a confirmation e-mail immediately such as may happen with some other sample requests. I expect the sample will take a few weeks to arrive, though 3M does not state explicitly how long it will take.

Several years back I worked with a company that regularly created exhibitions for the public. Our shows had to be clean, concise and hold up to lots of people touching and pulling on items that they should be only reading. I was regularly mounting text panels, figuring out how to make pieces more durable and working with the amazing people in our shop to finish projects. A 3M double-sided industrial tape was regularly in our toolbox. I went through huge reams of double-sided tape for every installation and always had success.

I do not doubt that the 3M VHB tape will hold up to almost any project you give it. This tape is for heavy duty construction projects. You can attach this double-sided tape to metal, glass, plastic and a large variety of other surfaces. Use this tape as a replacement for screws and bolts, no holes or drills needed.

This product will also stand up to various weather elements such as rain, wind and extreme heat and cold. I can see using this sample for several outdoor projects I have in mind, and I bet it will hold together nicely. There is a video testimonial on the 3M website in which a company that works mainly with aluminium praises the tape for also bonding quickly to surfaces without drying time. Most other products that bond as strong as bolts and nails have a long drying time and lots of chemical fumes. I am looking forward to trying out my free sample when it arrives.

Bargainmoosers, what would you hold together with this tape?

Home Depot Canada: Stanley 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Was $160 | Now $100 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 10:01 AM

Home Depot Canada: Stanley 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Was $160 | Now $100 & Free Shipping

Home Depot’s got a “Black Friday” sale going on this week, with discounts on a whole lot of items. One item I found in particular as a good, practical deal is the Stanley 1600 PSI 1.4 GPM electric pressure washer, regularly $159.99, now $99.99, plus free shipping.

This is something I know my husband is going to want. I think men just love washing things outdoors. I have to admit, when I wash something with a pressure washer or hose and I visually see the dirt coming off, it gives me a very satisfied feeling. Weird? Maybe. We just bought a trailer, and this will definitely come in handy in keeping it looking new.

This Stanley pressure washer is not the strongest on the market, but it does have good reviews and is a very affordable price. It is good for light to medium jobs like washing boats, motorcycles, decks, barbeques, patios, decks and all your other outdoor items. It is also lightweight so you can take it with you to the cottage or boat.

It has some pretty cool features like a unique tool belt clip, so it really stays with you. It also has a soap dispenser, turbo nozzle wand, quick connect and a straight brush, along with the high pressure hose. Auto shut off ensures your pump has a long life and conserves energy.

This review really summed it up for me:

This pressure washer did all the things I needed it for. The price was great and it works like a champ. I paid $50.00 to have my patio and porch cleaned by a pro last year. If this machine lasts another year I will have saved money.

Comparing prices around the net, I found this exact pressure washer at Staples where it is $150. Walmart sells a lower model of Stanley pressure washer with only 1450 PSI for $138. This deal at Home Depot is your best bet for this practical tool.

Home Depot Canada: Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool (8lb) Only $3.49 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 8, 2015 at 6:35 PM

Home Depot Canada: Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool (8lb) Only $3.49 & Free Shipping

Home Depot currently has the Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool for only $3.49 with free shipping to your home.

I have seen this deal on before, but Home Depot was out of stock at the time. Thankfully, the stock has been replenished so you can pick up the Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool for a few dollars with free shipping. I could not find this tool anywhere else in Canada, but similar tools retailed for $5 US or more. For similar tools, Canadian Tire has the Telescopic Magnetic Pick-Up Tool for $13.99 but it only handles 1.5 lbs. The Hillman Group Telescoping Magnetic Pick Up Tool is $7.99 at the cheapest tool like this sold by Amazon Canada is the Master Magnetics 07228 Magnetic Pick-Up Tool – certified for 3 pounds – that costs $5.02.

It is important to recognize this is not your standard magnetic pick up too. This tool extends to over 24″ to pick up objects in rather hard to reach places. The heavy-duty magnetic tip can lift up to 8 pounds. Your average magnetic pick up tool you might purchase at the dollar store cannot handle that kind of weight.

The little tool also has a cushioned grip for comfort while you are working. Now, not everyone one of these – but they do come in very handy. If you drop a screw or bold somewhere you cannot easily reach, then just use the magnetic tool to retrieve it.

When I was disassembling and reassembling my PS3, I dropped a screw into a very tight corner. Using two screwdrivers I finally managed to retrieve the screw – with some difficulty. A tool like this would have made that job a whole lot easier.

I have also dropped nails behind the headboard of my bed while hanging pictures, dropped tweezers down air vents, and lost paperclips in the abyss of my drawers. A tool like this could be quite useful for retrieving small metal items.

The device also has a little pen clip for hooking on your belt while you work. That way you never have to find the tool that is going to help you find your lost screw.

I figured that for $3.49 with free shipping, this is a handy little tool.

March 26 Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Lowe’s Canada is giving away batteries with select tools and tool kits. Many of these bundles are also on sale so you already save money. You also receive a free battery valued at $55 up to $129.

Let us start with the cheapest kit you can buy to receive a free battery. The Bosch 18-Volt 1/2-in Cordless Drill with Soft Case is currently on sale from $139 down to $99. With it, you will receive a compatible battery. This battery is valued at $79.99! Overall, you are spending $99 for $219 worth of stuff between the drill kit and the battery.

There are two ways to receive your free battery. If you click ‘add the set’ on the main page above, then both the kit and the battery will be added to your cart. However, if you view product details and then add the tool to your kit, then you need to add the battery to your shopping cart as well.  Do you see the green bar below? Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Make sure you click the ‘Add’ button for the appropriate battery to be added to your cart for free. If you miss this step, then there will be no free battery in your order. After adding the battery on, your cart should look like this: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

There we go! You can see the battery is now in your cart and will cost you nothing. Most of these tools and kits qualify for free parcel shipping (on orders of $49 or more), so shipping should be free across Canada.

The most expensive battery belongs to this large DEWALT DCK290L2 20-Volt MAX* Lithium Ion Hammerdrill / Impact Driver Combo Kit. The kit itself cost $369, but is now on sale for $319. This pack includes:

  • 1/2-in Hammer drill
  •  1/4-in Impact driver
  • Two (2) Li-ion battery packs
  • A Fast charger
  • A 360° Side handle
  • A Belt hook
  • A Contractor bag

While the kit comes with two batteries, you are going to be running two tools with them. It is always nice to have an extra one sitting on the charger, or already charged, to slip in when one battery dies. If you happen to need both the tools at the same time – then there is no time to leave one battery on the charger. Your free battery will be battery number three! One of these batteries retails for $129 so you save that plus $50 off the original kit.

Stanley 12.5” Toolbox for Only $4.99 @! (Add-On Item)

Posted by on March 20, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Stanley 12.5” Toolbox for Only $4.99 @! (Add On Item)

Does your hammer need a home? Are your screws needing stored? Do your bits need a box? If so, check out the deal on this 12.5” Stanley STST13011 Toolbox on offer @ just now. Originally priced at $15.99, you can grab this handy little toolbox for only $4.99!

If you don’t have the Amazon Prime delivery service, you’d have to make your order up to $25 to get free super saver shipping on this Stanley toolbox, as it is only an “add-on item.” But I know many Moosers probably already have Amazon Prime, meaning that you can just order the above without having to order anything else, and get free shipping to your home. Shipping is a little slow though, you’ll have to wait three to five weeks for this item from Amazon.

The Stanley toolbox has two organisers on the top for small parts storage, to house things like your screw anchors and nails. It’s also got a little tote tray inside which is very useful if you’re doing some DIY and you’re carrying a few tools and accessories round with you.

The reviewers on Amazon are pretty happy with this toolbox, with a few comments about it being a good toolbox for basic home use, but not likely up to the job of being out on a construction site. Makes sense!

I googled for some price comparisons on this item and I actually spotted the very same toolbox at the same price on Lowes here. However, you’d have to spend $49 or more to get it shipped for free there. If you’re buying the toolbox on its own from Lowes, shipping would cost an extra $6.49 in ON for example, more than the cost of the item itself! You do have the option to collect it in-store at Lowes though, if you are so inclined.

My partner has a toolbox almost identical to this one, except I think it’s a larger model. I find that the top storage organisers are incredibly handy. There are lots of little accessories in there which are close to hand when needed for a DIY job round the home; screws, nails, hooks, etc.

(Save 71%) BOSTITCH 16 Gauge Nailer Tool Was $344 Now $100 & Free Shipping @!

Posted by on March 17, 2015 at 11:18 AM

(Save 71%) BOSTITCH 16 Gauge Nailer Tool Was $344 Now $100 & Free Shipping @!

Have some spring home renovations planned? has a great price on the BOSTITCH BTFP71917 Smart Point 16 Gauge Finishing Nail Compression Tool. This tool was $343.58 but you can grab it for only $99.99 now! This item also qualifies for free super saver shipping from Amazon Canada.

BOSTITCH has a name in the tool industry when it comes to devices that fasten things together such as nails or staples. The quality you should expect from this BOSTITCH compression gun is no exception. This nail gun is perfect for adding the final touches to your project, such as attaching molding or adding the finishing nails in countertops. I would not suggest using this nail gun to hold together the main supports of your project. With this size nail, you should be able to spackle over the nail hole and paint your project for a clean and finished look.

This compression tool is oil free, and hooks up to an air compressor. Oil free tools help keep you from getting a drip of oil on your project. This tool also has Smart Point Technology that helps you ensure when you line your nail up, the nail goes where you aim every time. It is frustrating to be in the middle of a project and have to yank nails back out when they go askew, or because they split the wood. A compression gun will help ensure you spend less time correcting you work, so you can spend more time enjoying your project.

If you are not sure how to use this nail gun, check out this article on The Family Handy Man that walks you through all the basics.

This specific model is not for sale at many places, but there are models that are very similar for sale. I found a similar BOSTITCH 16 gauge nail compression tool designed for finishing projects for $209 at I found a slightly bigger BOSTITCH 18 gauge brad gun that uses compression for $139.99 @ Canadian Tire.  There is a cordless version of this BOSTITCH nail gun @ for $299.97.

Many of the reviews on this product are lengthy, but most seem happy with the tool.

This is a great price on this compression nail tool. I would pick this up now while the price is hot. This would also be perfect for small DIY projects made of wood. I have a wood trellis for my garden that I want to build, and this tool would be perfect for putting it all together.

Mastercraft 80 pc Screwdriver Set Was $100 Now $20 In Store @ Canadian Tire!

You’ll have to head outdoors if you want to take advantage of this deal! In-store at Canadian Tire, you can pick up a handy little set of tools for less than twenty bucks. This Mastercraft 80 piece Screwdriver Set was originally priced at $99.99 and it’s currently only $19.99!

It’s a shame you cannot click and order these online, or even get free shipping to your home. It’s a great price, but you will have to collect it at your local store. You can use the stock checker on their website to make sure that your location has some availability. From what I can see, the availability looks pretty good indeed.

In this set, you will get 15 screwdrivers of various shapes and sizes, 8 precision drivers, as well as 9 hex keys and 42 bits. There’s also a tack remover, 2 nut drivers, a demo driver, a ratchet handle and a nylon bag in which to store it all. I think that adds up to 80 pieces! Honestly, it looks like it contains some handy items which could be useful around the home.

Now for $20, I don’t expect this tool set to be the most amazing in the world. I imagine it would be perfect for household jobs and a bit of DIY, but I don’t think it’d be the sort of tools a tradesman would carry. However, the web page states this:

This product carries a lifetime exchange warranty redeemable at any Canadian Tire store.

That’s pretty amazing! Make sure you keep your receipt. Mastercraft 80 pc Screwdriver Set Was $100 Now $20 In Store @ Canadian Tire!

If $20 is out of budget, then consider this Stanley Screwdriver Set for only $10 – it’s still in stock @ and available. You don’t quite get the extensive amount of tools that you would from the Mastercraft deal at Canadian Tire, but it’s a bargain nonetheless.

Please let us know in the comments below if you take advantage of this deal from Canadian Tire!

Was $287 Now Only $92.29, Porter-Cable 2 Drill Kit @ *BUMP*

Was $287 Now Only $92.29, Porter Cable 2 Drill Kit @ *BUMP*

*BUMP* Check out this great little steal. Amazon is offering the Porter-Cable 12-Volt Max Compact Lithium-Ion 2-Tool Kit which was previously $286.98 for only $92.29. This combo kit is a steal for a quality power drill and meets the requirements for free shipping.

I am no stranger to tools but my husband, father and father-in-law are usually the experts that I consult when looking at great deals on tools. This double drill set is a great deal for a powerful little drill set that will last. If you are not familiar with Porter-Cable, they are truly is a brand you can count on.

My father-in-law is a true bargain hunter. He will drive past three other huge stores to get to the store that has the cheaper ketchup and then pick up buns at another store just to save a dollar. He has been slowly switching his tools to Porter-Cable because they are reliable and great value for the price. He has renovated multiple houses (you should see his log cabin style rooms!) and Porter-Cable is always in his toolbox these days.

Reviewers praise this particular drill set for being light. If you have ever been in the middle of a project and felt your arm was going to fall off, you know it is an important feature. They are also cordless with quite a bit of power. It comes with a larger more powerful drill and a smaller drill for getting into even tighter spaces. This drill also provides multiple speed options and a tighter grip on the bits so you strip fewer screws and do not destroy the bits.

This drill set is not going to be cheaper elsewhere. I price compared across the web and right now the only other major retailer where this combo pack is available is for $159. Looking over the border, the Americans are paying $101.97 @ and are reviewing these with high ratings. We are getting a better deal on our end.

Those who took the leap to buy this set gave it high reviews both on and on the site.

It is so much nicer than my other rechargeable drill as it is so big, unbalanced and clumsy. These units are well balanced, light weight and have a light to show your work space and just a joy to use!

Another reviewer sounds like they have completed their first project with these drills and had success.

These are great for small jobs. So far so good. The impact driver does have about 80 ft lbs of torque and I tested it. I love this and will but Porter cable products again.

Keep this set handy for all of your small projects. You can thank me later! Bargainmoosers, what projects do you have in mind for these drills?
