Most people know how Prime Day goes — there are exclusive deals all week leading up to Prime Day, and the best deals are often saved for the main event. It is best to keep an eye on the deals all week if you are looking for specific items, like new power tools, and buy whatever it is that you want when you see a price that you like. If the power tools you want are on sale three days before Prime Day, buy them. There is no guarantee that they will be on sale again during the main event, and there is no guarantee that the Prime Day sale will be better than you one you just found. If, for some reason, the tools that you already bought are offered at a more significant discount on Prime Day, you can always return the previously purchased item and buy the more discounted one.
Prime Day will likely offer deep discounts on all of the most popular power tool brands. Brands like Bosch, Black + Decker, DeWalt, Ryobi, and Milwaukee will all be on sale during Prime Day. Most of the time, Prime Day offers more significant discounts on older models of items. Look for great deals on 2019 models of cordless drills, impact drivers, jigsaws, circular saws, and more. There will also probably be great deals on power tool bundles. Many of these bundles feature three or four different tools made by the same manufacturer for a lower price. The cool part about these bundles is that most manufactures now make universal batteries that will fit all of the tools they make so you can get away with having just one or two batteries to run all of your tools.
Now that you know what to look for when Prime Day rolls around, you need to know what kind of power toolset to choose. The key to selecting the right Prime Day power tool deals for you really boils down to what you will be using the tools for. For example, if you are looking for some basic tools to have in the house if you need them, you aren’t going to need tools with a ton of power. If you are someone who likes to DIY and uses power tools regularly, you may want to get a toolset with more power and more options.
If you are new to power tools, you may want to make a trip to your local hardware store and check out the power tools. Being in a store with the tools allows you to pick them up and see if they feel good in your hand or not. Heavy-duty tools that are made for construction sites are likely going to be too heavy and too powerful for your DIY needs. If it doesn’t feel good in your hands, you aren’t going to want to use it. Also, power tools can be dangerous, so be sure it feels like you can handle the device. Once you have test driven some power tools, you are ready to shop Prime Day power tool deals.
Some other items to consider are corded or cordless, battery life (if you end up choosing cordless), speed settings, power capacity, and more. Be sure to pay attention to what the set comes with – if you are buying a jigsaw check to see if it comes with blades. If you are buying a drill, you may want one that comes with an assortment of drill bits. If you are a beginner, you will likely want a toolset that comes with everything you need to complete a project. If you are a seasoned DIY pro, you probably already have tons of drill bits and saw blades and don’t want to add to the clutter by buying a set that comes with the extras.
