Lucky you if you got it. Mine are all saying $100

At this point, since pickup seems to be unavailable - this may be first thing in the morning B&M with major YMMV. Thanks for the late night hunt OP.

Surprised there'd be any left. Seems like the person putting the price tag on the shelf would just buy them or tell their buddies about it.

NOT In Our Neck Of The Woods...$159 here.. I Would LOVE A Deal Like This, So Needing One,,

Terrible and misleading title. As shown, the lowest price is $50, and that's for all of 3 in the nation... and double the price the title lists.

Let's get real with the ymmv stuff.

No, not really.  I've seen this drill go down to $25 several times over the last month or two at various Lowe's across the country.  In fact, there was one that had it for $25 just the other day.  It's just a matter of time before another store lowers it to $25.

"There was one" in a country of 300 million people, and almost 2000 Lowes stores, is less a deal and more a lightning strike.

How does one find inventory online? All the stores around me say "Unavailable for same day pickup". Does that mean it's not in stock?

rated:

It's very possible other stores have it for $25 but dont show up on the website. Even at $50 this is a steal, and you can use a $15 off coupon bringing it down to $35. Thats much better than the $153 Amazon wants.

rated:
I got the one in Gautier, used a $15 off of $50 and got it for $37.58. Thanks!

rated:
Thanks! two fresh batteries alone are worth the $50.

rated:
Lots of green but could you find it? could you jump in this deal?

This worth a trip to Lowe's.  Will give green when I could find it and buy it for this $25.

If it's really $25 i'll buy 2.  One for gift.    I'll be doing a lot more screwing around. 

rated:
where do you get the coupons?

rated:
Shows $50 for me. Pickup not available, shipping not available.
OMG! LOL!

rated:
Look at the date it shows too when it shows the $50. Random dates!

rated:
a well run Lowes, or any store for that matter that keeps up with their price changes, and inventory adjustments will probably have sold through this. These items are probably not on the floor, but in the overheads, or miss labeled or un accounted for shrink. (they were stolen long ago). these may also have been replaced by a newer model (think new UPC) and the new one may be on the floor and the old one in the overhead, or elsewhere. it may also be intermixed with the new sku.

have them scan them at the register to verify, as i don't think there are floor scanners at Lowes.

Good luck to all the needle in the haystackers.....

  Ditto for me, but it won't let me place an order for store pickup. I would have to go in and hunt.

I called a dozen stores and asked if it was a price mistake. They all told me they were out of stock.

Just kidding... just reminds me of back in the day when the FW forums would blow up when some newbie made the "call the store to check" mistake

Anyway, I checked a dozen North Georgia stores ONLINE and the results were quite varied--anything from $179(!) in Alpharetta, to several stores at $50. Only one store (Snellville) has it for $25. It's not worth the hour drive for me, but someone might want to go check it out.

^ look like they reduce the price to $25 when they don't have any in stock.

  Buy there and adjust elsewhere?

rated:
It does seem that they only lower it to these extremely low prices when they have one or even just the display model. My local Lowes never seems to have these deals.

rated:
wonder if you could do a purchase and re buy at the store with a lower price

buy at store a at 150 each
return at store b, with no inventory with computer price at 25

re purchase at store b at the lower price.

edited to correct spelling

rated:
Lowes doesnt take back items that the specific store doesnt carry, so probably not likely. I tried to return their blinds and they wouldnt take them back bc that store doesnt carry that size, even though they carry the brand etc...

rated:
You can definitely return something to a store that doesn't have an item in stock, I have done it many times. Make sure you have your receipt because they won't find the order in their computer. It's worth a shot

  No

Looked online and a Lowes somewhat near by had it for $40. I called them and they said they had 1 left but they can't hold it for me. Got there and the only one they had left was the display (which I figured anyway). Asked them if I buy the display does it come with all the original pieces, they said no, it is just the drill, no batteries, charger, case, etc... No deal for me .
