Skil 18-Volt 4-Piece Combo Kit for $99 **UPDATED WITH CORRECTION
CORRECTION: The members of our fact-checking division were off at a bar getting loaded when this article was posted, so there is a slight correction to be made. Well, actually more than slight. In fact, what Skil is offering for $99 are the four tools and a charger and one battery. For some reason, we thought that the kit was tools only, no battery or charger. In this new light, the already good deal is truly fantastic. It's now a full-on kit for a hundred bucks. Honestly, you can't beat that.
Lowes is offering a nice deal on a Skil 4-piece cordless kit. The rock bottom $99 price is for the tools only (no battery and charger), so you'll have to get those separately. But still, with the additional purchase, you're only going to be at a whisker under $150.
We've never used these tools, but we have experience with a similar 18-volt Skil kit (our review here) and we liked it quite a bit. This would be a nice set for someone looking to get started in the DIY world; decent tools that aren't going to break the bank.

Lowe's has also posted their black Friday ad for this year on their website, and it has this very same kit for $59.00. Very good deal as long as you don't mind the crowds. A second battery is only $29 then too. This kit also allows one to spend a little more later and upgrade to a lithium ion pack and charger, which is smaller, weights less, runs longer, and has pretty blue led's. http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=307976-353-SC118B-LI&lpage=none
thats a nice little kit for the money. Every kit this holiday season seems to be skimping on the batts, Craftsman, Ryobi, etc, but at least they come with 1.
