I was in my local HD store in Issaquah, WA yesterday and had this set, normally $159 marked down to $120. It says it is only sold online so YMMV if it is even in your store. The Issaquah store had at least 2 others after I bought one.

This is my first Deal Post. Any constructive criticism is appreciated.

The battery is the star of the package. The trimmers is OK, the Blower is low end in the Ryobi line. 300 CFM is going to make jobs laborious.

I just bought this on Sunday in northern Virginia for $120. Both worked fine for a small yard. Wish the edge trimmer has wheel though.

I literally just walked out of home depot and saw two in clearance. It was $80 at my store. I didnt buy because I didnt need it.

This blower is actually plenty powerful. I have one and I love it.

Doesn't appear you can add attachments to the trimmer.

I managed to pick one up at my HD last night for $80. HD site said they didn't have any, and there was no space for any on the normal shelves, but there was one on the top shelf just hanging out. So check up high, folks

The trimmer that accepts attachments is also on special sale for $129. It is a huge step up in performance, rated #2 overall cordless trimmer right after EGO. 15" Dual string .080" or .095", bump feed, speed loader, 40-Volt X Expand-It with 4Ah battery and new style charger. Personally think the attachment capable trimmer without a blower at $129 is a better long term deal than the combo of low end trimmer/blower just to get the same great battery, even if you have a tiny yard like I do. Also needed the 4Ah battery to replace an ailing 3 year old 2.6Ah mower battery.

Here is the Brushless attachment model, back on sale with the 480cfm Blower for $199. This was available on a one day only sale last month. Now I don't see an expire date. On-line only like last month. For whatever reason arguably there best String trimmer is only found in a few select Stores (at least in So Cal) Only 3Ah battery but enough juice for most tract size homes. I have yet to run out of power using the two tools. On the high/turbo setting both tools are as powerful as my 31cc two stroke Troy Built Trimmer/Blower Attachment.

Having said that the Ego Trimmer / Blower deal for the same $199 is a better deal since the tools are a step up. But I really preferred the feel / length / weight of my Ryobi trimmer over the Ego and would still buy it. But that is a personal preference and won't hold true for everybody.
