These online deals don’t work like that when the items are already combined and you aren’t picking the extra item. It’s possible you can bring the listing into the store and see if they’ll replicate the deal for you. If they do, then you could technically return one item.

I pointed this deal out yesterday on the impact wrench deal that expired. On paper it's good, but not great, but if you're willing to buy a 20 off 200 coupon, which runs about $2.50 online, it becomes a pretty smokin' deal at $217.50. At that price, it's like getting the stubby at the $129.99 price and getting the ratchet at an all-time low of $87.50.

Here's my original post: https://slickdeals.net/f/15460915-milwaukee-m12-fuel-3-8-in-right-angle-impact-wrench-kit-with-two-2-0-ah-batteries-209?p=151676737#post151676737
Definitely a pretty good deal for some of us who missed out on the previous deals. Stubby seems to be the same price as Acme for $129.99 and I could get this much earlier than from Acme. Plus, this is the older model Fuel Ratchet (2557-20) for folks who are looking for one. The head is bigger and has 55 ft/lb & 200 RPM compared to the newer ones (2567-20) which has a much smaller head, very similar to the brushless ratchet and goes up to 450 RPM & 35 ft/lb.
I googled and went with a place called wearecoupons. I signed up with a hide my email (iCloud feature) email address and paid with PayPal. I ended up buying two in a day and was able to access each within 30 seconds of buying them. Worked and had no issues at all. I am not recommending or vouching for them by any means. I can't speak for how reputable they are, but didn't have any issues and felt pretty well protected with the means I used.

Where are you buying this coupon from? The only website i've seen sell it is lowescouponscode. Is that a reputable vendor?

How does the head size for the ratchet in this deal compare to the head size on the nonfuel M12 ratchet (2457-20)?

Why not just get the kobalt deal? Seems like a better deal plus the right angle impact fared better in torque testing. Not trolling, genuinely asking since I just purchased the kobalt deal myself (normal 24v impact plus 24v right angle impact plus battery for 199)

obvious answer would be if you're already invested in Milwaukee.
One less charger to deal with, smaller batteries that many of us are already invested in, comparisons don't exactly factor in size as much as breaking power and the stubby is an amazing form factor.

Edit: just looked up the deal you were referring to. It's not even a comparable tool. The impact in particular is a high-torque form factor not a stubby.

Yeah I'm more focused on the right angle impact rather than the normal/stubby impact. For the automotive work I do, I'm thinking that the right angle impact will be most useful. I'm curious, what are you using the tools for normally that makes the stubby so desirable?

additional question - if I already have a good, large compressor, is it better to just buy 'high-end' pneumatic tools? I've been just using a bunch of my dad's old pneumatic stuff that I inherited when he passed away. I was intrigued by the battery tools because it would be cool to not be tethered and my pneumatic tools are showing their age... I'm debating upgrading to new pneumatic stuff or jumping into the world of battery tools.

My use case is mostly automotive

I was eyeing this one to start:
Astro Pneumatic Tool 1822 ONYX 1/2" Nano Impact Wrench

For most non-mechanics, a ratchet like that found here will do 90% of the work you'd probably do on your car or projects. An impact is more important for breaking loose old fasteners and you'd know you need it if you do. The benefit of the stubby is it's size and weight. It's more important for a mechanic that will be holding it for hours during their work day, but it's also helpful for home users and professionals due to its small size - it's easy to toss in a bag and bring with you when needed and it is way more compact (allowing for much better reach in tight spaces) than a more traditional driver. The weight and balance is also much, much easier on your wrists and arms.

Regarding pneumatic, I'd advise against it. Pneumatic requires much more maintenance (oiling) and the restriction of being tethered is a pain in the ass in a day and age where cordless can provide the same power in 99% of use cases. It is the cheaper option which is nice, but I personally don't like the oily drawers you end up with while storing them.

FYI. I have both items here.. The stubby is great, I personally use the 1/2 stubby more than my 3/8. The ratchet... being only 35lbs is weak as heck... looks cool, doesn't do much. If you using it to un-thread small bolts, that is the only thing it is useful for. It has a hard time breaking loose 12mm bolts on cars. Sometimes it stalls on certain 10mm bolts. I honestly find it faster just to use my fine tooth hand ratchet for small nuts and bolts.

The only electric ratchet from Milwaukee that is strong enough worth using is the Fuel extended head one that is quite useful and has more power than this one.
