This is a great deal, the batteries are whatever, but you can return that. Router for $99? I'm in for one.

Great deal indeed. I already picked up the jig saw and router while cancelling one of the starter kit portions this morning. Be careful though as I was waiting for the ready-for-pickup notification one of the starter kits processed too long and said I missed the cancellation email. No biggie though as I will just return it when it shows up on the 30th. The other one I cancelled immediately after ordering and I was still able to successfully pick it up.

Can you keep the battery kit and return the tool for a discount? Or no since the tool is "free"

You know you have a problem when you have already hacked your way to every bonus item in this deal LMAO

This should still work but apologies if they changed it:

As with all Home Depot online combo deals you can do the following usually:

1) Add the battery kit and the tool you want to your cart.
2) Set the item you want to Store Pickup (the store must have stock!)
3) Set the item you don't want to Ship to home
4) Place Order
5) Immediately cancel order (has to be done within 45 minutes of placing)

The Ship to Home portion of the order will be cancelled, and since a Store Pickup order cannot be canceled you will pay the reduced price and have to pick up that tool in person at the store.

I use this trick all the time for Milwaukee deals, so I hope this helps folks out here. Keep in mind that if a local store has 0 stock of the item you want this wont work. So they could set local stock to 0 to prevent this from happening.

You can likely do this in reverse and ship the item you want to home and call the store to cancel the pickup, but I have never done it this way.

You can also just buy both and return the one you don't want because they should be itemized with the sale price.

Happy hunting.

For what it's worth, my store no longer allows partial returns. I'm not sure if it's the policy nationwide, but they did not let me return just the starter kit last time. It was either the whole order or nothing.

Isn't it unethical, and fraudulent to take advantage of flaws in the system? I always thought Of these practices as frowned upon on Sd.

I don't think it's a HACK as much as it is wrong.

Edit: I wasn't trying to be all uppity. In my experience on SD, I have always seen bashing of people trying to "game the system".

I definitely remember seeing in the dewalt threads where some people would ask about returning the batteries and keeping the tool and they get bashed.

I'm not worried about HD going under. Just seems hypocritical compared to what I've seen previously on the forum.

I do think this is a good deal financially.

Were they distinct different line items on the recipe or was it a 1 line item bundle of battery starter + free tool?

The router was also the immediate tool that I focused on with this deal since it very rarely goes on sale. Has any one confirmed this deal? I'm assuming this "hack" only works if you pay for both the starter kit and the free tool @ a BM HD store only correct?

I always just buy in store then walk right over to customer service and return what I don't want. I just say that my wife told me no and they usually laugh and don't think much of anything. I'm not sure they care tbh.
