    That dewalt combo kit is false advertizing. I was like 'Dewalt makes an 18 volt miter saw? GIMME' *click on link* Where the hell is the saw?!

    Powertool prices fluctuate so much you may not be getting an actual deal when BF shows up.
    I am more interested in getting decent hand tools dirt cheap, that seems to happen much more often.
    Also sometimes non-tool electronics like vacuums or pre-lit trees. One year they had a decent 6 footer with lights for like 20 bucks or so. Another year they had really damn good shop vacs for a quarter the normal price.
    Sometimes they have good flashlights on sale as well, but PSA: Ignore those dollar flashlights, they die too easily.
    Unless you need good batteries, those have actually lasted a lot longer. You can get one of those multipacks of Brinks flashlights that include like maybe 9 AAA's for much cheaper than a pack of AAA's.

    If you happen to see any good power tools please let me know. I'm looking to update all of my older tools.

    I usually pick up a set of those dollar flashlights and then spread them out in the house and garage. Great for working on cars because I can wedge them in the engine bay, etc, and not care if they get damaged. That being said, I have so many from last year that I am not picking any up this year.

    My plan is to stock up on more non-power tools. re-stock my misplaced sockets, pick up another set of drill bits and dremel accessories, etc.
