I have probably spent 2 hours between 11-1pm this morning to find some store and some sort of combo thta would work. I was adding only batteries, and moment i choose an other set of batteries it would ask me to choose pick up store. Tried every store and couldn't even add batteries before even starting to add tools.
Here's a little tip!

Don't waste your time trying all permutations as you'll never figure it out. Suggest you open a spreadsheet or grab a pad and pencil and track which stores have the right items. Here are a few steps:

  1. Search for 2-Pack of XC 3.0 Batteries: Write down the HD's that have them in stock.
  2. Search for 2.0 Pack of Batteries: Write down the HD's that have them in stock.

To Find Out The Stock of Other Stores: open the item and click on "Change Store". This will show the stock levels at the different HD's in your area.

The only places where this deal with work is if the HD has 1 set of the 2-Pack of XC 3.0 and 2 set of the 2.0 Pack of Batteries. For all the HD's that meet this criteria, then start to search for tools that qualify for the deal.

If the stars align and all planets are in conjunction, that is the HD has the tools that qualify and the battery packs, then place the order and it should work. When I checked Calgary after I got my order, there are no HD stores that have both sets of batteries in stock so the deal is automatically dead.

If you find this handy, upvote me! Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Picked up my order last night from Gloucester.
Customer service was great.
Hope others were able to benefit.

Nobody has the two pack in stock anymore. The stores that have 1 are likely errors.

Looks like HD took down the references to the 2-pack from their website today. None of the tools which qualified for the 2-pack deal has any mention of the 2-pack deal under Special Offers anymore.

SWEET!

The only way I could get this deal to work in Calgary was to order 2 x HackZall (brushed) tools as tools and batteries were hit an miss at all the HD's in town. They called me up and said they only had 1 HackZall and would upgrade me to the other Fuel HackZall at no charge and if that would work for me. I said "heck yes!". When I arrived, they said they didn't have the 2-pack of the 3.0 batteries and upgraded me to 2 individual 4.0 batteries as well as the 2 individual 2.0 packs.

Sweet deal! Thanks OP!.
What store that was ? It seems they are very nice people working in there (customer satisfaction above all) so I wouldn't mind trying my luck there with my purchases in future (especially matching other ridgid tool pricing through receipts).
Btw. you got awesome deal - not only you got superb tool, but you got way better batteries as well. With that luck you should try to get some of those Rona's deals.

Can they do that? Wasn't the dual XC battery for 2 M12 promotion until next year?

They can as they did put in their fine print that it was a limited quantity promotion. It might be that they took it down temporarily until they can get a handle on the inventory of the 2-pack.

Picked up my order in hurry, brought it home just to realize that they gave me 2 vacuums, instead of 1 vacuum and 1 sawzall. On the receipt it says Sawzall...now I have to go back to get them to fix. It's now my words against theirs. I dont feel very comfortable in these situations.

I've finally found a store with stock, but I guess the loophole is now fixed :(

I called them, and they actually made me feel more comfortable than expected. They actually upgraded my Sawzall ($109.00) to M12 FUEL (169.00) for the inconvenience. I am very impressed by their customer service.

Haven't tried it - with all the bad review, I am not sure if I want it or not, yet.
