$79.99 - 25% off = $60. Use code EXTRA25 at checkout

Sold by Frys via Google Express. YMMV - needs to be in stock in your area.

I thought that $100 - 25% = $75 was a pretty good deal when I put it in my cart yesterday, but then today I noticed the price drop in my cart. So I immediately checked out - no idea how long the price drop is supposed to last.

haha we were both thinking the same thing. I ended up going with the hakko since it seemed like a better deal than the new Weller digital (WE1010?), just that the Hakko has a terrible UI. Now I just need a good fluke meter.... Not sure if I'll bite yet... Fluke meter prices were higher on Google Express from the looks of it compared to Amazon, and I have a qualifying Amex for that 20% amex coupon.

Good deal. But not available in my area. Probably not available for shipping outside a Frys area.

Fluke DMMs are a silly thing to buy new. Check used locally. Don't be afraid of used Fluke DMMs.

Not sure of your requirements, but if you aren't using in industry or need RMS, Fluke makes Chinese domestic meters for fairly cheap.

Very accurate, feature packed, and sports the team colors. If interested check 15B+, 17B+ (I have), 18B+ on eBay or other sites. If purchased with coupon can be had for sub $100.

Quick, everyone vote down this deal so it doesn't get canceled.. hahahah..

Just kidding..

It's an ok deal, $10 cheaper than normal sale price at the end of it if you have tax. without tax it's ~18-20$ cheaper.

Old technology, look at the TS 100 for the same price on amazon.

the TS 100 is on par with the more expensive Hakko FX-915.

I realize these soldering irons are really popular right now, but they just aren't in the same league as units like this Hakko.

And, unless they've started including them, you need to provide 24v adapter, making it more expensive.

And, technically, the technology is the same. You are supplying electricity to a resistive heating element to create heat.

Actually, this Hakko (888) is not in the same league as the TS 100 as the TS 100 has the heating element built into the tip it will out preform it in every aspect. the TS-100 is on par with the Hakko FX-915 which is $220, they are compared in the video above.

Also it comes with the adaptor, and you can also use a battery.
