Ridgid @ Home Depot - Buy Two Items, Get 2.0ah Battery and Charger Free

+6 Deal Score
6,850 Views
Buy two Ridgid Items $59 & up and get a 2.0ah battery + charger kit included. The battery and charged is covered under the Lifetime Service Agreement as it is a kit. The items are the bare versions and do not come with a battery.

I don't think this is the best time to buy the drill/impact/saws; wait for the deals with multiple batteries or the "buy a kit and get a free tool" promos. If you are interested in the random items, i.e. lights, fan, etc., this may be a good time to do it. I haven't seen those random items on sale in store other than the "new lower price" that knocks $10-$20 off them and lasts for a couple weeks.

I have Ridgid's brushless hammer drill & impact with 2x 4.0ah batteries. I have been wanting smaller and lighter batteries and a couple of the lights, but didn't want to pay full price and wanted the LSA.

If you have a Menards near by, you can get Home Depot to match their 11% rebate that is running this week. THD's rebate site isn't updated yet, but it will be. Also new is that you can submit the 11% rebate match online now instead of mailing it in. I have not done it this way yet so can't comment on it working or not. Mailing in has always worked great. https://www.homedepotrebates11percent.com/#/home

Combining the free battery/charger kit with the 11% on Menards is probably enough for me to pull the trigger on two of the lights.

Items like the router and jobsite radio come in a kit for $20-$30 more that includes a 2.0ah battery + charger, so it probably makes more sense to find those on sale rather than buy now.

I just put a pair of hand vacs + the battery & charger combo, it reduces the price of all items.

How are you returning your two main items to get the battery & charger down to $16? They will only refund you the amount on your receipt, battery combo went from $99 to $60 in my case.

Thanks for any further info.

I had the math backwards and removed that part of my post last night. The actual math is reversed, where if you bought the two most expensive items at $249 then returned them, you would end up paying $99-$17 = $82 for the charger/battery kit. If you want just the battery/charger, then the cheapest you should be able to get it for is around $53 by buying 2x of the $59 items then returning them. Once I had the math right, I decided it probably made more sense to get the non-brushed Drill/Driver + battery/charger for $79 or 2 batteries for $99, instead of paying $50 for one battery/charger.

I own a couple of these. I paid full price for the orbital sander and I am pretty happy. I picked up the vac with the hammer drill combo offer and was stunned at how awesome it is. To me, it compares with a dyson handvac with the flexibility of just swapping out the battery for a longer job. Its actually the most used vaccum in our house now, and its awesome for small jobs where I dont want to drag out the full size shopvac. The problem is finding out where my wife left it last...

The circular saw is a good deal for the price. Nothing awesome about it though.The router is pretty cool too, but the kits are a better value unless you really need another tool.

Been playing with for a bit and found that the best prices i could get were to bundle the item I wanted with the 18v Hybrid fan. It seemed to make the price drop the most for the other times in cart. I ordered the 18v Compressor, Fan and Battery and the Compressor came down to 126.57 with the battery at 70 and the fan at 42. So i'll return the battery and fan. If you do 2x fans and a battery the battery then becomes $54.23. I also wanted the 18v Floodlight normally $70, combo that with Fan/Battery and it drops to 39.09. So i'll be returning all items and keeping the Compressor and Light and have it out the door for less than the cost of the compressor normally at $179. Maybe I'll keep a battery at $55 but i'm still on the fence.

The link is wrong. Goes to a price match page.
