Power tools are very expensive. When said and done, all the tools can add up to be a big expense. So when buying a power tool you want to make sure you are getting the most for your money. Always know who you are buying a power tool from. Make sure they are reputable. If you buy it through a store or a classified ad or online auction, make sure they have good feedback. If you can find a tool cheaper than other places you have checked, take a closer look and ask yourself, “Why is this power tool cheaper at this place?” When you compare power tools from one place to another, you need to look at some important aspects, such as corded vs. cordless, amps and horsepower, return policies and more.
I don’t see that many advertisements or coupons in my local paper for Porter Cable power tools. I do occasionally see their drills, sanders and routers, but that is about it for coupons. Most of my Porter Cable power tools have been purchased online because the stores around me just don’t carry a big inventory. I did find my router at a local home center. Just remember if you are going to see coupons in the paper, it will probably be in the Spring or close to Father’s day.
Here is a link to join the Porter Cable Club. They send coupons to me once in a while, but they also have other valuable information.
