Surprised this hasn't been posted... searched and couldn't find it.

I've been looking for a deal on the M18 FUEL starter kit for a few months. Mainly interested in the drill and impact driver... but I would consider another tool. The price point I was looking at was $100 per tool.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../307940640

Home Depot has this kit (2997-23SPO) on sale for $449, plus you get a free tool or battery (can select from 5 I believe). This was in store. I believe the free tool was all M18 - grinder, multi tool, light, extra battery, speaker. You can see the options here:

https://www.homedepot.com/collect...=307940640

None of the extra tools really appealed to me, so I went with the light (checked reviews first):

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../304351228

I may return the light. On the receipt, it says "Max refund value" of $111.87.

So $449 - $112 (returned light) = $337. I'm not sure if the other tools would give you more or less money back. I know the light was the most expensive of the "free tools" at $149. The cheapest was an extra battery at $100.

The packing rollout goes for $130 new but you wouldn't be able to return this separately... I'm not sure what these go for on ebay or craigslist, but if you didn't want it maybe you could get $75-$100 for it?

That would take you down to $250-$275 for three M18 FUEL tools. Below the price point I was looking for. I like the packout roller, may keep it. On the fence about the light. You also get 2 x 5.0 batteries in this kit. Could sell those if you don't need them and get it even lower!

I've been waiting for a deal on the reciprocating saw and/or the circular saw. I'll have to figure out if it's worth buying just for the reciprocating saw, maybe keep the "free" grinder, and selling the rest.

Not bad... I like this deal with more tools: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../309033450

Anyone know how to calculate what the return value breakdown would be for the kit vs the impact wrench?

That impact wrench is not returnable because online orders show free items as part of the deal. To have an item be returnable, both items have to be individually priced on the purchase

Thanks. I was thinking I could buy it in-store to get both to be priced separately... But it's not available in store, at least near me.

It's a smoking deal. FP

Rolling packout $279 usually
2x batteries 5.0 $99 on sale
Angle grinder non fuel $99 ?

Then you get 3 fuel tools for "free" drill, driver and sawzall

Divide your out of pocket cost by the sum of the set price plus "free" tool price to find the percentage that you would get back of either.

For example: $700 out of pocket for $900 worth of stuff ($700 set plus $200 impact)

$700/$900 = 78%

78% of $700 kit yields a $544 return value
78% of $200 impact yields a $156 return value

Edit: but yes, you must be able to buy in store for the items to get prorated values like that.

How does 11% at Menards help? 🤔
