Best Tool Deals

Chloe Jeong / The Spruce

Having the best tool for the job can make a huge difference in your ability to do improvement work, and to do it right. After all, you don’t want to go through all the trouble to plan your home renovations and DIY projects, just to find that you can’t quite get there with your basic household kit. But the truth is, tools can get expensive—especially compact power tools that are easy to hold and use yet still deliver the power you need, which is why we looked for the very best tool deals.

If there’s a decent amount of home improvement work in your future, keeping an eye out for tool deals will help you snag what you need when the price is lowest—so you don't totally blow your renovation budget. Sometimes, you can find even better deals when you buy in bundles with batteries, charging stations, and more. It's a great time to add some tools to your collection for a fraction of their original price.

From drills and impact drivers to oscillating tools, nail guns, and more, these are the best tool deals you can find right now.

What Our Experts Say

"Shopping for tools can feel daunting, but if you know when to shop you can at least be assured you'll find a great deal, even if you have to decide on the brand first. While you can find a good deal on tools any time of year, the best time to look will be around holidays like Father's Day or the winter holidays, as they make great gifts and are often discounted to encourage shoppers. Additionally, be sure to watch around Black Friday as there also tend to be excellent offers during these sales as well." — Julie Ramhold, DealNews
