As part of Lowe's early Black Friday sale, they are offering a free Porter Tool with a Porter Tool 20V or Tool Kit Purchase. The value of your free bare tool varies from $59 up to $89.
Your best deal is to spend as little as possible and get the most expensive bare tool as a freebie. To achieve that combination, you would want to purchase the 20V MAX Li-Ion Drill/Driver & Reciprocating Saw Combo Kit for just $159. You receive a Drill/driver, a Reciprocating saw, a single battery, the charger for the battery, a six-inch fast wood cutting blade for the saw, a double-ended blade tip for the drill, and a storage bag for your goodies.
This bundle also qualifies for free parcel shipping, which is no small thing when we are talking about decently heavy tools. Now, with your purchase you qualify for your choice of freebies. Here are the items you can choose from:
- 20V Li-Ion Jig Saw - $59
- 20V Li-Ion Circular Saw - $79
- 20V Li-Ion Oscillating Tool - $89
- 20V Li-Ion Grinder - $69
There was a 20V Li-Ion Reciprocating Saw ($79) option but it appears to be out of stock. To get the best value for your buck, the Oscillating Tool is your best option. However, most shops would get far more use out of a Circular Saw, which is valued at a healthy $79.
Now, there is a reason I have been using the term 'bare tool' and it is not just because the website uses that term. The free tool does not come with a battery thus it is considered 'bare'. With your kit and your free tool, you will have three tools with one battery between them. In the future, you may want to watch for sales on additional batteries.
The tools are not completely bare, however. The Oscillating Tool comes loaded with extras like:
- 14 sanding papers
- Sanding plate
- Precision Wood blade
- Bi-Metal blade
- Rigid scraper
- Carbide Grout blade
- Accessory storage box
All these little things come free of charge with your purchase. With such high value tools free with purchase and free parcel shipping, I think this is a fantastic deal as we approach one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Stick one of these under the tree for your favourite handyman or woman.
Quantities of each free item appear to be limited as one is already out of stock.
