I decided on the Bosch 1617EVS(PK), so kept my eyes peeled over the last week or so on the different retail sites, including craigslist and ebay for a possible used one.
Amazon’s price for the “Bosch 1617EVSPK 12 Amp 2-1/4-Horsepower Plunge and Fixed Base Variable Speed Router Kit with 1/4-Inch and 1/2-Inch Collets” was $200 (pretty competitive based on my searches but not a huge bargain), but today I realized that Amazon is having a Bosch tool promotion until May 31st. If you spend $100, you get $20 off… if you spend $200, you get $40 off.
Since Amazon was kind enough to price this package at $200 (instead of $199.99), I got an extra $40 off. Free shipping, and no taxes charged at checkout…. so $160.00 final price on the router I wanted!
I’m not sure if this is that great of a deal, but in only one week of keeping my eye out for this router, it’s by far the best deal I found.
I thought I would share this info in case others are in the market for this router or any other Bosch tool.
Note: You won’t see the discount applied until you get to the credit card page.
Hope this is helpful.
Also, I hope I put this in the right spot (blog)...I’m new at this.
