Anyone know if this will be an in-store deal as well?

Likely not. No in-store SKU, and they wont be able to piece it together.

I think it's still priced high unless you really need the extra batteries and case. You can buy this light on eBay brand new, delivered, for $165.

First I will say that the top line of Milwaukee LED lights are really great and worth the money though they are expensive. But I agree with you that this is only a "deal" if you are in need of a charger and the 2 batteries. If you already have several of the these batteries, then it's better to get a-la-carte or find some other promo. Also if you do have the extra batteries, you probably have some "spare" chargers too from other purchases of combo kits. I notice this is not the new fast charger. Also this is a pretty big light. For smaller tasks, consider the new M12 stand light. It sells for $149, but recently they had a promo where you got one of the new very-high-capacity M12 batteries with it for the same price. (and who doesn't have a bunch of M12 chargers? or M18 chargers which also charge M12).

Incorrect, this should work in store as long as your store has that battery kit in stock. See link below to check. I would guess returning the battery pack after purchase will knock the light down to $120 making this very slick.

Color me skeptical. Does it have full warranty through those sellers?
Nevermind that buying 9AH + 5AH batteries will probably cost you a lot more than $124

Milwaukee has full warranty for 5 years past the date code on the tool. Period. No proof of purchase necessary because they stand behind their products and know damn well they're the best. Getcha some, friend.

Is the only way to replicate this to go to the store, purchase the torch light and starter pack after getting them to price match the combo price online and then later return the starter pack? Is there a way to return the starter pack just ordering the combo online? TIA

Does HD price match +10% if they have the items in stock? Was able to find a couple near me.

Battery pack is $270 in store, essentially making the tower $30.

Any thoughts about how much each item will be listed for on the receipt?

The bare light is currently priced at $200 and the starter kit is $300, so this deal is $300 for $500 worth of stuff - which is a 40% discount, resulting in the light's return value of $120 ($200-40%) and the battery kit's return value of $180 ($300-40%).

If I buy the $299 combo pkg. , will I be able to return the tower light alone for $199?
