I'll make sure to fit that deal into any post.....just for you
I discovered a TS 2424-1 (reconditioned) hiding behind some boxes at the local HD. $249.99, and since I needed another blade it pushed it over $299, oh well I just had to get a HD card to use that 10% off offer and oh well it also meant no interest for a year. So I got what I needed stuck $25 in savings for 11 mos. and voila' my first Rigid addition to the shop. I'l have to say I was a bit disappointed when the local HD indicated that factory refurbs were no longer coming to the retail store, but I think I got a good deal on a $649 saw+ Freud blade less than 3 bills.

Best deal I got was right here at HD in Canada, believe it or not. Back in the middle of October or so, the HD's here had a big MaxSelect sale on - buy one tool for $79, get another free. After tax, about $46 a tool. With full eligibility for the LLSA. The MaxSelect tools retail here for $129 ($119 in the U.S.), and our dollar was just about at par at that point. I only had the impact at that point, so it was a sweet deal to pick up the other tools. Called all my buds and my dad, we were all there first thing in the morning scooping those up. Best...ever.
I got my Bosch PS20 new in the box from the clearance table at HD for $70. I ran into the store for a metric tape measure for my wife and saw it sitting there, it was just after tax refund so I had to grab it up. I couldve sold it the next day for $100, but didnt.
My 6 1/2" Ridgid Circ saw with a battery for $90 (I had a little persuasion in that deal)
My Ridgid Recip Saw, with 1 battery and charger (when they sold them as a kit) for $110 clearance, it had been sitting out in the open for a few weeks before I bought it, later that day someone asked me what happened to it. I said it must have sold finally (didnt have the heart to tell him who it was sold too, it was a HD legal deal though)
