Home Depot offers this in-store and online.
Website notes: Price Valid : 01/28/2019 - 04/26/2019 Milwaukee M12 Free Bare Tool Or Battery Promotion.

FWIW when purchasing this deal in-store, the batteries ring up with a max refund value $49.00 and the drill combo max refund value $80.

I replaced a 10-year old set of Makita 10.8v compact drill/driver and impact driver with these and it's an improvement in every aspect except weight. The Makita's were a few ounces lighter. I've read that the included belt clips on these Milwaukees are rather useless (said one roofer) but I'd rather have the belt clip than try to cram it into a pocket or strap on a separate tool belt, imo.

At this price and with the added batteries it was a no-brainer for me.

Previous deals on these were around $99 and didn't include 2 additional 1.5ah batteries which sell separately for ~$79.

$119 at acme with 4ah xc instead of the two little ones. https://www.acmetools.com/shop/to...e-2494-22b
I feel like if you're spending more than $100 you should bite the bullet and go fuel, since there are some decent fuel deals running.

Yeah, was wondering the same. I get that it's not fuel but c'mon, show me a better combo with better drills and batteries and 5yr warranty by a ubiquitous brand for a better price and I'll be grateful. Seems these days SD'ers only have an appreciation for pricing mistakes and such.

Oh well, my mom thinks I'm cool... Smilie

I don't know that I would call free 1.5Ah packs a deal. I mean, last spring they were throwing in free M12 6Ah packs with a lot of the kits. It sounds to me more like Milwaukee trying to clear out the obsolete battery packs.

On the other hand, Dewalt ships brand new kits with 1.3Ah packs...

Anyway. this kit isn't bad and is very comparable to the Bosch 12v tools but I think Milwaukee has a better chuck. The M12 fuel drill and impact are WAY more powerful though and are also a lot more expensive. I actually have both drills as they're good at different things. The fuel is more like an 18v tool but I love that it still uses the M12 packs so I don't have to have two systems.

Yep, I'd rather have 1x 1.5AH + 1x 6AH than 4x 1.5AH.. not only is it more overall energy capacity, it's less batteries to worry about losing and/or keeping charged. The 1.5s are nice because the m12 tools are very compact with them.

I'd recommend waiting for an M12 Fuel Drill+Impact deal, honestly. My m12 fuel impact is a little workhorse, and much more powerful than my friend's plain M12 impact.

I wouldn't buy this. I have the M12 Fuel, and it's barely strong enough to drill a hole to install my Nest cam/hello. I can imagine a non-Fuel version having much more trouble doing that.

I find that hard to believe - What are you drilling through?

Reinforced concrete or granite with a dull bit.

Good price for good tools. But the 1.5 AH batteries are too limiting. The biggest drawback of Gen-1 M12 tools is powerful (and therefore power-hungry) tools mated with underwhelming batteries. Milwaukee designed the line to cater to the pro who has to 'occasionally' work in tight spaces. They cared more about power and size than weight and battery life. Gen-2 (fuel) fixes that with both better power efficiency and higher capacity bundled batteries. They're still heavy though.

If you want compact, light and good battery life, then Bosch 12V is the way to go. Less powerful than M12, but still plenty for homeowner use.
