soldering iron

Note that its the only tool I saw online that came with the free starter kit.
Good catch! I just bough it! I sold 3 battery pack in a range of 50 to 60$ all ready.

This one will be my 6th battery pack. Now I need a Ryobi shelf for all these tools.

They probably restocked the batteries-chargers. Ordered the soldering iron alone recently and had to go to store for a refund then buy with free battery (they had a few left).
I bough so many Ryobi tools this summer...

Thanks for the update! Was able to get the iron, if you select "Pick up" then it does not work, batteries get removed.
Shipping is free so I went for that.
Now time to go in store and see what's left.

Btw the only other tool where I saw batteries get added correctly is the Impact Driver.

Unfortunately it's brushed motor and not compact, not what I'm looking for.

Doesn't seem to work for me. I made sure that I had shipping selected but the battery does not show up in the cart. Even though on the page for the Impact Driver it does state that you get a free starter kit with it.

What's the method to get the iron? It's online only, so can't return battery only, correct?

Can someone comment on the quality and lifespan of ryobi tools and this starter kit battery? All my stuff is dewalt but I could use a random orbit sander for furniture and a small deck. $70 wouldnt be too bad for the tool and battery

Just checked for the soldering iron. Seems to be OOS (conveniently) so can't say if the combo kit (available to order) would be free. This promotion has been... interesting. Winking Face
I can't afford to save that much!

I always say the same:
Casual home owner: Ryobi
More serious home owner, some professionnals: Ridgid (lifetime warranty for tools and batteries is hard to beat).

You really get what you pay for. Most of my stuff is Milwaukee but there are some tools that Ryobi makes that Milwaukee does not OR tools that I don't use that often buut Ryobi is like 1/3 the price. My favourite Ryobi tool is the cordless glue gun followed by the cordless air cannon and small fan. I also have the brad nailer - ended up getting this for free by selling some battery kits and ryobi tools. The brad nailer for Milwaukee is like $399 and this is something I thought would be cool but I don't use it that much so getting it free is nice.

My general rule of thumb is if I'm going to be using the tool a lot or if I'm going to be putting it through some intense sessions, I'm gonna go with big red. In your case, go with the yellow if you're gonna be giving the sander some serious work OR if you're planning to keep it for the long term.

I think buying Ryobi as a secondary brand to own is definitely worth it because of the price. I use a combination of Bosch 18v and Ryobi tools as a home owner. For 'heavier duty' tools, I buy Bosch. For less frequently used tools or 'luxury tools' i'd buy Ryobi. I also use a Bosch to Ryobi battery adapter, so that I can use my Bosch batteries on my Ryobi tools. I bought all 3 of those Ryobi sanders, brad nailer and the tire/air mattress inflator, as well as a couple of 2ah batteries that came as freebies. Ryobi also makes a lot of tools that Bosch doesn't, so I get the best of both worlds.
