Amazon.com [amazon.com] has the Bosch 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Pocket Reciprocating Saw (PS60BN) for $75 with a free 2.0Ah battery (BAT414). Must add both to cart, discount applied at checkout. Good through 10/31/17. Shipping is free.

IMPORTANT: This does not include a charger, so it is not really a slick deal if you do not already own compatible Bosch 12V tools and chargers. If you do, and maybe like me took advantage of the recent Bosch drill or driver deal, then it appears to be about as good as it gets.

Seems to be an average price for the tool, but the battery runs $35-40, and the battery deal is exclusive to Amazon. Conservatively a $30 savings even for those charged sales tax.

Decent price but I wouldn't recommend this saw. It's the only Bosch 12V tool I own that seems under powered

I disagree, if you are expecting it to perform like a 120V sawzall then you will not like it, but it has plenty of power to do most jobs, as long as you know its limitations. I just used one to cut a bunch of 2-3" trees and it did fine.

I used a hand looper to cut 2" Christmas tree before and it was surprisingly easy.

I'm not comparing to a 120v but mine bogged out cutting tree branches up to 2 or 3 inches. Do you use a particular blade for that kind of thing?

It would stop whenever pinched and I had to pull it out and go slower. So it wasn't perfect, but it did the job just fine if you don't rely on the motor to have the force to unjam itself. I think if it was geared lower it could do this, but would take forever for cuts, especially metal.

I am a huge Bosch fan (both 12 and 19V gear), but have to admit that this saw seems underpowered. For specific specialty tasks its nice to have, and I prefer it to a had saw for many tasks, but don't think of it as a sawzall 'cause it doesn't have that kinda power (or meaningful battery life). I still carry it ~50% in my general fixit bag, but if I know I have any meaningful cutting to do I'll bring a 120v.

It has a battery, that's what makes it a deal. An L-Boxx is expensive to buy, so that would have been nice to include, but i can see why they didn't. It is a horrible marketing blunder in my opinion, hopefully it will be corrected at some point, i really like their 12V stuff.

Tried to get my local lowes to price match this, and they said there is no way they could match a deal like this. So much for guaranteed price matching
