This looks to be a pretty good deal, especially for FUEL (brushless) tools. So many lament that these deals are usually for the non-FUEL version...here you are! Three tools (2 hammer drills and an impact driver), two batteries (1 is large capacity), charger, and carry case.

Linky [homedepot.com]

Includes: (1) 2404-20 1/2 in. hammer drill, (1) 2453-20 1/4 in. hex impact driver, (1) 48-11-2420 M12 2.0Ah battery, (1) 48-11-2440 M12 4.0Ah battery, (1) 48-59-2401 M12 charger, (2) belt clips, (1) carrying case, (1) 2408-20 M12 3/8 in. hammer drill

Here is the description on the Home Depot ad:

The Milwaukee 2597-22 M12 FUEL Combo Kit takes 12-Volt to next the level of performance. Milwaukee M12 FUEL features a POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, REDLINK PLUS Electronic Intelligence and REDLITHIUM Battery Technology, this results in longer motor life, more run time and more power. The POWERSTATE brushless motor works harder and lives longer than all leading competitors, while reducing noise and cooling more rapidly to deliver years of maintenance-free performance. The M12 REDLITHIUM XC 4.0 Battery provides up to 4X more run time than standard Lithium-Ion batteries. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence hardware and software is the world's most advanced system of cordless power tool electronics that will maximize performance and protect the user's investment. With purchase of a 2597-22 receive a free Milwaukee 2408-20 M12 3/8 in. Hammer Drill/Driver.

If you prefer a high capacity m12 battery rather than the extra drill, HERE [homedepot.com] is that deal. Same price.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Keep in mind that the (1) 2408-20 M12 3/8 in. hammer drill is not a brushless tool. I think Milwaukee is moving away from brushed motors. Perhaps throwing a freebie brushed drill into these kits is just to unload inventory so that they can usher in a completely brushless line (?). I read that they have rolled out some brushless tools recently that didn't carry the FUEL moniker. Even more evidence that brushes may go the way of the dino on red tools.

EDIT:
Having said all of that, I do think this is a pretty good deal. That 2408-20 is over $47 shipped on Amazon and the kit price is cheaper than on Amazon (at least when I checked, Amazon has a tendency to adjust to current deal pricing).

eh, it's a good deal in the sense that it's a lower price with a extra free tool. but really... who needs 2 hammer drills, let alone 12v hammer drills. most drill jobs requiring a hammer drill are going to be way smoother with a more powerful 18v+ tool.

whoever came up with this bundle is obviously just hoping to try to get rid of their underpowered hammer drills twice as fast.

at 12v, I agree that the hammer feature of these drill motors is pretty pointless. They're still decent drill motors on their own, but I'd disregard the hammer on these.

Return the 2408-20 M12 3/8 in. hammer drill after purchasing it as your free gift (or another lower priced free gift tool for less) for a prorated max refund value of $64.09, bringing the price down.

$229 - $64.09 = $164.91 + tax for the M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Impact Combo Kit minus returned M12 3/8in free tool

Works like this in store at least.

I purchased this set last week but I had a choice for a free 4.0 Ah battery and chose that instead. the extra battery fit nicely into the hard case.

just pulled the trigger on this set. gonna return free drill

my total (i had a 15% off coupon + 5% through discover) came out to be $129

not sure i'll find another deal like that as other drill deals that go clearance dont happen in Florida most likely due to construction economy here. Home depot never clearances drills here like other locations
