I didn't see it on the page with the description (perhaps I overlooked it), does anyone know if the batteries are new or reconditioned?
If they are new this is a steal as 2 new batteries run about 150-160.
In the Q&A at the bottom of the CPO website (linked in the OP):
Are the batteries new or used that come with the reconditioned tool?

The batteries have been previously returned. However, they should be like new. Most reconditioned tools are returned due to a malfunction with the tool, so the batteries are never used.
I bought the brushless set to replace my 20 year old banana handles. Wow! These aren't toys. Big green is back to leading the way in drill/drivers. I have a couple friends that have recently sworn off the yellow tool products after complaints of shoddy construction.
We ordered a set so we would have extra batteries to go along with our other Makita set. One of the batteries had a couple scuffs but maybe happened in packaging or production really but basically, these looked brand new. When I ran them for the first time, you could still smell the new in the motors when you pulled the trigger. Might seem strange but they do have a new smell to them.
Missed out on the Rakuten points but not a big deal since. Just hope my cashback works though!
I got one after a lot of thought, I had to replace my dewalt brushless which was stolen, hope Makita makes me happy as well Also now Rakuten has an offer with the promo code SUMMERSET you can get 3400 Rakuten points. I think that is 34 dollars.
