For those of you who wait for Black Friday deals to pick up tools for work or house projects, you can be sure that there will be many online and in-person deals throughout the holiday season.
Where should I shop for tools?
Our recommendations for online shopping for power tool set deals are Lowe’s and Home Depot, as obvious choices, but one you may not have realized has great deals all year round for tool items is Overstock.com. For door buster sales happening in-person (and online), check out Ace Hardware. Tools Today is a great source for really specific bits, blades and other pieces for your special projects. Acme Tools has Black Friday specials for hand tool sets, power tools and more that are already live, if you just can’t wait.
Where can I find the best deals?
Here are your best bets for deals on power tools, tool sets and tool storage that you’ll want to take advantage of in the upcoming month. Prices are subject to change without notice.
Last year, Lowe’s offered 25% to 50% off tool sets and power tools of the DeWalt brand, and we expect to see the same in upcoming sales. Lowe’s recently released its Black Friday 2020 Ad, and it’s called the Season of Savings Event. It starts online on Thanksgiving Day, November 26 at 1 AM and lasts until December 2, but note that Lowe’s stores will be closed on Thanksgiving. In this year’s ad, you’ll find 28 pages of deals on tools, home goods, holiday decor, gifts and more, plus bonus savings of up to $700 off select major appliances and free local delivery on major appliances of $299 or more.
The Ace Hardware Black Friday 2020 ad is here, so make sure you look through the four pages of amazing deals. In addition to in-person special discounts, there are coupons that can be used on most products. Last year, we saw huge deals on grills and DeWalt and Craftsman sets, and we are seeing those again this year. Shop Red Hot Buys that are valid until November 30 and get amazing savings on power tools and kits with your Ace Rewards Card. It’s free to become a rewards member, and you’ll enjoy 10 points for every dollar on most purchases, $5 for every 2,500 points and exclusive Ace Hardware coupons.
Sears’ 2019 Black Friday ads featured up to 50% off Craftsman tools plus more savings with qualifying Sears or Shop Your Way credit card. Check their ads soon for some sneaky good sales, and for the time being, Sears is offering up to 50% off tools and financing options.
While there are no pre-Black Friday specific tool sales, there are great every day savings on tools that are worth a look. Overstock regularly has flash sales and promos going on, so make sure you’re subscribed to emails from this retailer.
