New to circular saw here. May I ask your opinion, what first saw would be better for a DIY project who doesn't use saw for professional work?
Would a circular saw or jig saw be or other saw is better as my first saw?
I am planning to use it to cut some trim board for fence privacy panel and repair laminated flooring
The other tool I already have are Ridgid drill & impact driver.
TIA for the advice.

You can add saw kit and two 5.0 ah batteries into cart and get $249 finally, so hackable!

two 5.0 ah batteries https://www.homedepot.com/p/Makit.../206609332

18-Volt X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36-Volt) Brushless Cordless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw Kit 5.0Ah https://www.homedepot.com/p/Makit.../307288228

Just want to make sure I understand this hackable deal correctly. So if we return the extra 2 batteries, does it mean we are paying only ($249 - $159 returned batteries) = $99 before tax?

Circular or miter saw would be your best bets. Circular is fairly versatile and cheaper than a miter.

Batteries only knock off ~$97 when you return part of the bundle

I didn't read through all of the comments for this deal so I don't know if someone else already posted similar info...

Even though the web site states that the deal has expired for the rear-handle version I was able to get it to work by doing these steps using store pickup:
- put the top-handle kit in my cart, which also added the battery 2-pack
- put the rear-handle kit in my cart
- remove the top-handle kit from my cart

When I did the above steps, the system still produced a net cost of $249 for the rear-handle kit and the battery 2-pack 👍. The store that had the rear-handle kit did not have the top-handle kit, so I simply selected two different locations when putting the items in my cart.

I'm not sure if the above approach will still allow you to do the return hack - since I wanted the extra batteries that was not a concern for me.

I don't know if adding the rear-handle kit and then the battery 2-pack to your cart separately would also yield the same results.

Did you try the steps that I posted? They are just above your post. It worked for me even though the website stated that the deal was dead for the rear-handled model.

I bought a rear handled kit today, 1/28. The free batteries did not show on my online receipt (because they are no longer on HD website), so I called HD customer service. She said HD has 400 battery packs on order and they should arrive 1/30. The customer service agent offered to help me deal with the local store who said they didn't have any in stock. She put me on hold, then came back on the line with the store manager who promised to work something out. I got to the store and they were able to find a set of 5amp hr batteries, he said he would have even have given me the 6amp hr if they hadn't had the 5 in stock. I hope this helps someone who may have thought they missed out. This is a great deal in my opinion!

It really depends on the type of work you are expecting to do. If you are going to be working with dimensional lumber (2x4s, etc) then probably a circular saw. If you are going to be working with sheet goods (plywood, etc), then a jigsaw would be better. I'd recommend picking up a corded, used one of whatever you don't get as your primary saw type, as they are both really handy.
