Hello,

I'm looking for a combo drill/driver, if I was to dream brushless & lithium ion.
the one I really like is the makita xt248, which is $300 new on amazon/ $240 used.

anyone has tips on how to find a good deal on tools?
they seem to rarely show up on slickdeals

You might want to checkout your local stores, since that is where some of the deals are.

For example I bought new DEWALT DCK296M2 (overkill power for me, but can not not compete with the price) for $219.99 fairly recently at a local Jerry's Home Improvement Center store in Eugene/Springfield, OR. On DEWALT website they might have more info http://www.dewalt.com/promotions.aspx and if you are lucky enough to visit an event http://www.dewalt.com/events.aspx you can get stuff for dirt cheap.

Hah well you have to be patient if you are looking for a "slick deal".

I have been keeping my eye on deals on this website for a year and only once or twice something decent came up. Then by accident visited the local hardware store and stumbled upon that gem.

Take a look at http://bigskytool.com - lots of great deals in there. Even better deals if you're OK with a refurb.

There are currently 2 credit card deals going on rt now. Spend 1000 in 3 months get 200 back.
The plan. Don't spend one penny on anything you would not be spending on. Put all spending on the card and I mean every thing..
get your 200 credit and buy your whatever. If it cost 300 you now got it for 100.
In the process you can use the card to buy some gift cards at discount and get HD or lowes and buy the drill there and save an additional 20 to 27%.
Make a comment if you need to know the cc deals.Gotta go cook rt now.

Here's one real quick
