Topic tags/keywords: home depot tool deal ridgid bandsaw jointer drill press

I have been lucky this week, and got to take advantage of the Home D discount on tools. I went to the local HD Sunday night, just browsing, actually, since someone on LJ had pointed out the discount, and the store manager announced the first 20 credit card applications that were approved got a hundred bucks off the bill. The local HD, a rather small one, didn’t have all the tools I wanted, and suggested I should get them all at the same store at the same time. Luckily, the next one had all three—the 6” jointer, the 14” bandsaw and the 15” drill press. List price was $1,097.00. The second store took off $70 because they couldn’t honor the other store’s special incentive, then applied the $300 discount. $727.00 plus tax! That’s a third off.

And I’ve still got the coupon for the $100 off at the first store! Now, what do I need the most—

-- Now, where did I put those bandaids?

So you basically got one of those tools for free. Great deal!

You need a RIDGID belt/spindle sander. Probably the hottest tool RIDGID sells.

Woodchuck—It was HARD to pass up the spindle sander! But I thought I needed these three the most; my crummy benchtop drill press was pitiful, and the nearest shop that can joint lumber for me is 45 minutes away, and I have a decent belt sander. AND substituting the spindle sander would’ve put me under $1000, and I couldn’t figure out anything cheap to bring up the total (that I needed). And I have that $100 coupon for applying for the credit card—anybody got a good line to give the missus? Maybe I should tell her she can take that special watercolor class?

Well you asked. $199 for the sander minus the $100 coupon equals $99. Thats pretty cheap for such a versitle sander that is rated so highly by consumers. Infact they are so popular that you may have a hard time finding a store that has one in stock.

Have your say...
