Have you been saving all year to take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday tool sales and more? Well your wait is almost over. The holiday deals are rolling out and we compiled a list of all the promotions from your favorite brands, hardware stores, and more.

Check out the guide to easily jump ahead to your favorite stores, brands, and online retailers.

Black Friday Sales Guide

Box Store Black Friday Sales

The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Harbor Freight, Menard’s

The Home Depot Black Friday Sales

The Home Depot Black Friday Sales

Instead of a weekend sprint, The Home Depot is giving customers a whole month of Black Friday offerings that is going on now and runs through Wednesday, November 29, 2023. Overall, I’d say the best deals are from RYOBI, Milwaukee, and DeWALT. Customers can save hundreds of dollars and restock their toolkits with current promotions from these power tool brands.

Some non-tool related promotions going on include $100-$1,000+ markdowns on select appliances, reduced (but limited) Christmas/winter decor items.

Also, even though Black Friday sales at The Home Depot run through the end of the month they are also marketed as “while supplies lasts” with no indication of total items available or if they’ll be restocked during the promotional period.

THD Insider Fact: As a former THD employee, I know that at least at my store there was no set delivery schedule for restocking items. With that in mind, I say if you see a deal you want should get up and get it.


Lowe’s Black Friday Sale 

Lowe's Black Friday Tool Sales

Before I go into Lowe’s Black Friday sales, I want to mention Lowe’s currently has a Pre-Black Holiday promotion going on now through November 22 that is worth checking out. Lowe’s Black Friday promotions start at 6 AM Friday, November 24 and go through the end of the month or while supplies last.

Overall the tool deals consist of $50-$100 markdowns across brands, such as CRAFTSMAN, Kobalt, and DeWALT. However, Lowe’s is running other sales concurrently, like the DeWALT BOGO promotion that runs through January 30, 2024. With this, customers get a FREE select DeWALT 12V tool when they purchase a DeWALT 12V Combo Kit for $199. Add in the free tool and this price is a great bundle.

Honestly, Lowe’s best deals are in the appliance department. A lot of these items have discounts of at least 30% off, resulting in hundreds of dollars of savings.


Harbor Freight Black Friday Sales & Coupons

If you know Harbor Freight then you know the brand loves its coupons. So, of course Harbor Freight also has a wide offering of Early Black Friday promotions and coupons. These coupons are good between now and Wednesday, November 22, 2023.

Harbor Freight doesn’t currently have its Black Friday promotions up, but we’ll make sure to update you (and this article) once the deals drop.

Menard’s Black Friday Sale 

We LOVE Menard’s here in the Midwest. However, they do Black Friday a little differently. Menard’s is known for its year-round/every other week 11% off rebate promotions. For November Menard’s instead runs this promotion from early November through Thanksgiving Day. After that 11% is OVER! At least until December.

It’s unclear from their current available flyers, but the 11% promotion generally runs all December long, or at least until Christmas Day. That promotion should be for all Menard’s items. However, current verbiage only specifies Christmas/holiday decor and toy items.

That being said, head out to Menard’s today or shop online and buy before the end-of-day on Thanksgiving to get 11% off all purchases. Which, one reason we love Menard’s is the fact that they have toys, food, pet equipment, and so much more.

Do your shopping now, mail in your 11% off rebate form, and get that 11% back as a gift to yourself.

Tool Brands Black Friday Sales

DeWALT, Makita, Milwaukee, RIDGID, RYOBI,

DeWALT Black Friday Sale

You can find markdowns and BOGO promotions across almost all DeWALT products this Black Friday season. I think you’ll find the biggest variety of DeWALT sale items at The Home Depot, but Amazon and Lowe’s also have a good variety as well.

Again, these sales consist of markdowns across most products, such as tools, workwear, tool boxes, and organizers.


Makita Black Friday Sales

Makita has a long list of Black Friday and winter sale items. Most are BOGO promotions that include a free battery with the purchase of select tools or OPE, and a couple of promotions include a free tool. Makita also has a lot of its 18V and 36V items marked down anywhere from $20-$299 off.

My favorite is the Makita Rapid Rebate promotion that saves your $180 at checkout when you buy the Makita LXT 18V 8-piece Combo Kit. It’s only $399 after rebate and includes a tool bag, battery and charger in addition to the eight included tools.


Milwaukee Black Friday Sale

Milwaukee has marked down a variety of items, not as many as DeWALT, but fair markdowns across a variety of items. These include: batteries & chargers, M18 tools and OPE, PACKOUT & tool organizers, and so on. Most markdowns land anywhere from $20-$90. However, Milwaukee has slashed some higher ticket items for great Black Friday savings that can save customers hundreds of bucks.

The savings start with Milwaukee Combo Kits. The small kits are anywhere from $50-$200 off. But larger kits, like the Milwaukee M18 9-piece Combo Kit is $600 off right now. This is great for anyone ready to upgrade their current tools to the Milwaukee M18 platform.

The other great promotion that Milwaukee often does this time of year is the Milwaukee M18 BOGO promotion. This year it’s buy a Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18V Hammer Drill & Impact Driver Combo Kit and get a FREE M18 tool. A great promotion that gets customers a $129-$199 tool for FREE. This promotion is limited to three qualifying purchases per customer.


RYOBI Black Friday Sale

RYOBI has one of the biggest Black Friday/holiday promotions going on right now. Customers who buy a RYOBI ONE+ 18V 4.0Ah Battery 2-pack & Charger Kit get a FREE select RYOBI ONE+ 18V Tool. Customers can choose from at least 11 qualifying tools that range from $69-$149. This promotion is limited to 10 qualifying purchases per customer.

In addition to this promotion, you can also find markdowns on a variety of RYOBI Tools.

This promotion is available until November 29, 2023. Rumor has it though that RYOBI will be offering a “Buy One, Get TWO” promotion. The info is currently available on the RYOBI site, but we have not seen it in stores (yet).


RIDIGD Black Friday Sale

RIDGID has a variety of strong Black Friday sales promotions that can save customers anywhere from $5-$100 or more. RIDGID has an interesting variety of tools and products, but the ones with the most exciting discounts are RIDGID saws. However, deals extend to air compressors, shop vacuums, drill/drivers, and tool kits.

Due to the variety of available items, I recommend you go and take a look at the items that might appeal to you.
