Home Depot YMMV/Inventory Not Listed: Makita 18V LXT Brushless Hammer Drill & Impact Driver Combo Kit (w/ 2 batteries and charger) $125

$125.00
+14 Deal Score

Short backstory -- a few weeks ago I posted a SD on a previous-gen Makita 2-drill, 2-battery, charger kit for $85. Brickseek and the Home Depot website would NOT list any inventory but the community found many on shelves (sometimes on top shelves) and the discount was successful.

Fast forward to today, I didn't take advantage of the deal I had found but was actively looking for it once again, well I just found a later-gen version for $125. I think Makita is pushing an all-new generation of drill sets so they want HD to liquidate the rest. The HD website and Brickseek website said this was not available in stores but I have photo proof. This time I bought it $125. Brushless set. Works like a dream. Obviously YMMV and you have to go to the store to look. There was only this 1 left in my store. It was next to single-tool versions also selling for a discount at $109. Still a great deal.

Good luck, and please post if/when you find the deal at your local HD!

Great drill/driver set. I've had mine for a couple of years and they've been solid. I do have the 3ah batteries though.

By the way, you seem to have a goldmine of a Home Depot near you. Clearance tool shelf at all stores near me have a couple boxes of fender washers and some light bulbs. Yours has Makita power tool kits!

Seems odd that it would not be marked as clearance online

It's ONLY clearance IN-STORE because stores do not carry this...

Exactly... it's the oddest thing at HD. Twice now found clearance items the website has listed as "not sold in stores" makes me wonder if Makita has strict rules against published prices below a certain threshold or something.

Bummer Luis, maybe it's just local to me? Only reason I posted it was because the prior $85 deal was found elsewhere. Did you have them ring it up just to check? Curious.

Accurate availability and pricing info of practically all HD clearance deals is not available online. You have to go to your store to see what they have and at what price. But as always, since individual stores can clear things out at their own rates, YMMV.
