[Home Depot] YMMV Ridgid x5 brushless drill/impact combo 174$ with 4Ah and 2Ah

I stumbled upon this https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ridgid ... 1001076815 at the orleans store today for 174$ even though its supposed to be an online exclusive at 279$. Went to gloucester, no dice there, so I picked one up at 10th line. Its 1 4Ah, 1 2Ah, the multi-hammer drill (meh, fine general purpose drill), and the 2250 in-lb impact driver (I have wanted to upgrade from my ryobi base model for a long time; love it but sometimes it just doesn`t have enough juice on the lag bolts).

I hesitated because the same drills are available at 299$ with a bare tool and 2x 4Ah, but the bare tool I want is the random orbit sander (99$), which essentially means I`d be paying an extra 25$ to pass from 2ah to 4ah on the second battery. I do like having a mini-pack, and I plan on getting the sawzall with 6Ah+charger down the road anyways

Unfortunately there are 97 days to father`s day, and 92 days to the (likely) release of the flyer, so price shopping will be hard. I`ll keep it closed and MAY return and buy another in a month (I intend to keep it entirely sealed as to not be abusing of the policy / giving someone the short end of the stick, but if I open it, its mine).

Keywords: model R96171 SKU 1001076815 R86092 R840086 R86037 R86116 R840087


Edit:
I am returning my kit to donate here
https://ca.gofundme.com/sisters-double-lung-transplant

I know I'm a huge sap / sucker, but I'm hoping my move can help convince others to do what they can (not that I expect anyone to return their awesome drills)

... It really makes my concerns about whether it was a good deal feel petty.

I know, that's what I'm saying... In store though it was clearly labeled at 174, rang up at 174... No problems. It's not even supposed to be on stores... Anyways, there's about 5 or 6 at the Orleans store in Ottawa.

sure, adding right now to the original post. Why do people want the receipts for HD deals? Does it help you get price matching?

yes to the receipt. some stores will allow the use of a receipt image to match a price. some won't. ymmv

also, what the $174 tag a white tag or a yellow tag? if yellow, did it say reduced or clearance and was there more than one or just that one available that you got?

I ask because my store is getting VERY sticky with their 'match other store policy' where they used to be very lax.

It was a white tag (which really surprised me because it was outside the regular tool section new the pro desk with a few other clearance ridgid tool kits) and there were about 6 boxes.

The stealth is quieter but with the same in-lbs as the base model (1200? 1700?)

that's great there was more than one. very odd being an online exclusive. I'd buy it to replace my aging non-brushless genx5 compact drill and flip the little impact to offset the cost of the new one.

seems like Orleans and Ancaster get some of the BEST Ridgid markdowns LOL

Sweet, where? And I guess my white label was the error, and now it all makes waaaay more sense.

sorry, the boonies. Woodstock ON

I was going to try to get a match on the folding led panel light from the other thread and this and the angle grinder price from the other thread, thinking buying all 3 they would match but I asked which manager was in this morning and it's the same one that denied my matches yesterday on the other two items because they were out of this area. if they went for it I'll throw down a 10% off coupon I have if I purchase over 299 on my HD card lol.. I'll hope for a staff/manager change and try again tomorrow.
