[Home Depot] Ridgid 3 piece brushless cordless $124.96 YMMV

Found this kit in Hamilton (centennial) for $250 reg $499. Scans at $499 in store so you need to do the online order or in store pick up options. Comes with the gen5x brushless impact and hammer drills as well as the 7 1/4 circular saw. Two 4 amp hour batteries and charger included.

Edit: Trying to reproduce the price online but it doesn't seem to be working. Posted order confirmation, will ask for the thread to be deleted in the morning if it still doesn't work. I picked mine up from Ancaster.

Edit (09/15): As I thought the pricing only updates accurately during business hours for in store pickup.

Edit (10/5/2017): Thanks to dealshunter1 for finding out that the set has dropped to $124.96. If you bought it since you found this post you should be able to get it adjusted.

Not quite as good a deal as the 2-tool kit without the impact driver for $75, but this kit does have 2 x 4aH batteries.

No definitely not, but the additional of the 4 ah batteries and extra tool made it a decent find I thought. Couldn't find that 2 tool kit anywhere when it was posted.

This was $300 for the longest time, then went down to $250 this morning, then up to $499 this afternoon.

Don't know what game HD is playing...

Exactly. Last night it was $300 then it dropped. I'm guessing the prices for in store pick up might not show up accurately outside of the store's business hours.

IIRC there were some negative reviews on one of the cordless circular saws, not sure if it was this brushless one or the non-brushless. Might find it in the old thread on the $150>$75 kit.

Ridgid generally aims for a compromise between quality and price. Not as expensive as the top contractor-grade tools, not as cheap as the light-duty home use lines.

The circular saw in this kit is a good example. In a comparison test it rated in the middle of the pack, but a key criticism was that it wanders off-line from the guide and jams more easily than others. Several reviewers commented that they had noticed excessive free play in the blade arbor which would cause this, and it seemed to be the result of premature wear. I have this saw, and it seems fine so far, but I haven't put it to very heavy use. I'll be watching for this problem. Unsure if Ridgid would cover it under warranty or LSA, but I suspect not.

Seems like a good deals for the big batteries and 3 tools.

All these Ridgid kits and tools are eligible for the Lifetime Service Agreement, as long as you register.

I understand that batteries bought separately from a kit are not.

When the saw/drill deal was going on I was driving from Windsor to Thunder Bay across Ontario and stopped at half a dozen different stores to no avail. Despite having the saw and drill already I wanted it just for the batteries. Picked this deal up today, wanted the driver anyway which between it and the batteries are cheaper in this kit than alone. I didn't need to price match, it rang up as this in the store, despite a $499 tag on the shelf.

Not true. I purchased a 2 pack of the 4.0Ah batteries a few months back and registered them without any issues.

Edit: As pointed out below by Shabby, I was incorrect - batteries are 3 yr not lifetime.
