Well, most people would wait for a sale, but $99 is the retail price of the M12 starter kit.

An m18 inflator would be larger and more expensive. Besides, most people aren't trying to pump up four truck tires from 0 to 35psi. and this handy little m12 is sufficient for just about anything else. If you routinely find yourself with four completely flat truck tires, then I'd consider an onboard compressor like Viair or something. This little m12 just isn't designed for that.

Getting that bead to set on a completely flat tire is a whole 'nother issue...

When you order online does it itemize like in store so you can return the tool?

No. If you want to return the tool or the starter kit, you'll have to get this deal in the store.

They pro-rate the savings across both items (tool and starter kit) so you'll receive roughly a third to two thirds back with the return (varies a bit depending on what deal you purchase and which piece you return).

Example: Surge impact ($149 retail) plus starter kit ($299 retail). You pay $299 for a total "value" of $448. 299/448=67%

67% of $149 comes to $100 return value for the impact
67% of $299 comes to $200 return value for the battery kit

No. Note the product model number on the web page - the combination of the stapler bare tool and the starter pack numbers.

Also adding each individually to cart does not show the discount either.

Only way to itemize the discount across the 2 is to purchase in store. If you try to return one of the parts of the online order, they will most likely refuse because "the order" is the one item that contains both tools.

I feel like the m12 options are the best bang for the buck. The m18 options are maybe 15% too high to pull the trigger as a great deal now.

LOL @ them saying it's a free tool. No one would pay $99 for two small batts and a charger starter kit.

In some cases, the batteries cost more than the tool itself. I have m18 tools and i know the batteries cost more than the non fuel line drills. People sell non fuel stuff for $20-$40 tool only.

You should like... I never pull out the plug-in type any more. Grant it... if it's something for long periods of using a rotary tool then I would, most of the time I need the rotary tool is short and sweet to the point type jobs.

I'm thinking about it myself. Mostly because I left my dremel at home. But I really like having the flex shaft on the dremel.

I was actually thinking of the same thing. They have everything else but an impact wrench. Lol
