Home Depot has a page for this deal here:  Ryobi Free Charger Promo 

To get this to work, add the P128 charger to your cart along with two qualifying tools. The cost of the charger + battery will be deducted from your total, so you pay just the cost of the tools and the charger + battery are free (NOTE -- they have it set up so that you CANNOT return the two tools and keep the 'free' charger -- they pro-rate the price of everything to make sure that things are fair if you do returns). 

Here's the list of qualifying tools, with prices that were current as of 2/26/17

In general, I like every single Ryobi tool I have -- they're an excellent value for money. Note that if you're just buying into the system, the starter kits are the best deal. Also note that Ryobi sells multiple grades of many tools (drills, saws, etc.) ... most of the ones listed below are the higher-grade versions, most of the starter kits are the lower grade version, although you can get mid-grade in a few of the starter kits as well. In general, even the low-grade tools are quite good.

Begin research borrowed from our benefactor + my comments on some of the stuff that I actually own. 

$ 49.97 - P170 Compact-Lithium-Ion-Battery-2-Pack Kit  (~1.25 AH each, no power gauge, older / lower current capability cells, in terms of overall capacity/$, the bigger ones are better)
$ 54.00 - P107 Advanced Lithium+ thin battery (1.5 Ah, power gauge, in terms of overall capacity/$, the bigger ones are better, but these are nice and light)
----------
$ 59.00 - P105 High-Capacity Lithium+Battery (2.4 Ah, no power gauge, older / lower current capability cells, in terms of overall capacity/$, the bigger ones are better)
$ 59.00 - P237 3-Speed 1/4 in Impact Driver. I have this tool, it is EXCELLENT. The light stays on after you release the trigger - this is only Ryobi impact driver with this feature. Normal price is $79, so this is a great deal w/ the free charger
$ 59.00 - P720 Dual Power 20 Watt LED Work Light. Normal price is $69, so this is a great deal w/ the free charger.
$ 59.97 - P340 JobPlus Base with Multi tool Attachment. Normal price is $69, so this is a great deal w/ the free charger
$ 59.97 - P523 Orbital Jig Saw. I have this tool as well. Also very good. Blows the doors off my old Menards jigsaw, but don't use the crappy stock blade.
----------
$ 69.00 - P241 3/8 inch Right Angle Drill
$ 69.00 - P507 6 1/2" Circular Saw
$ 69.00 - P601 Palm Router
$ 79.00 - P214 1/2 inch Hammer Drill
$ 79.00 - P516 Reciprocating Saw
$ 79.00 - P135 6-Port Super Charger. Have this one too. Love it. Keeps your batteries topped up and ready to use.
----------
$ 89.00 - P746 Hybrid Stereo w/Bluetooth wireless
$ 99.00 - P290 1/4 in Cordless Quietstrike Pulse Driver
$ 99.00 - P122 2 pack advanced lithium+ thick batteries (4.0 Ah each = 8.0 Ah total). These are the best bang for the buck, and also Ryobi's best batteries. Recommend checking B&M rather than buying online -- many stores have them marked down to $59, $69, or $89, and you can stack it with this deal. If you get these marked down & stacked w/ this deal, this is easily the hottest deal in this entire thread! At $59 w/ the discount it works out to $43 per pack, which is probably less than the wholesale price of the cells IN the pack. So very very hot.
$ 99.00 - P109 2 pack advanced lithium+ thin batteries (1.5 Ah each = 3.0 Ah total). These are better batteries than the other thin options, but a bad bang/buck. Only buy if you need a thin/light battery and don't need high current. Larger batteries parallel up the cells and so provide better current to high-draw devices like saws, impact wrenches, line trimmers, etc.
$ 99.00 - P108 High-Capacity Lithium+ Battery (4.0 Ah). DO NOT BUY THIS if you don't want to foresake this forum. You can get two of these for the same price, listed above.
$ 99.00 - P222 1/2 in Cordless SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill
$ 99.00 - P551 7 1/4-in-Miter-Saw
$ 99.00 - P785 Hybrid LED cable light set (claims to be a part of the deal on the website, but not yet available)
----------
$119.00 - P261 1/2 in Cordless 3 Speed Impact Wrench
$129.00 - P320 AirStrike 18 Gauge Brad Nailer. Have this. THIS THING ROCKS -- it doesn't have any of the issues that the Milwaukee M18 brad nailer has, and it's cheaper to boot. I've heard all the Airstrike stuff is very good.
$129.00 - P430 Brushless Belt Sander
$139.00 - P360 AirStrike 18 Gauge Narrow Crown Stapler
$179.00 - P325 AirStrike 16 Gauge Straight Nailer
$199.00 - P330 15-Gauge AirStrike Cordless Angled Nailer

I managed to get a local HD that had the P122's marked at $69 to PM another local HD that had them at $59 but was sold out. If you find these for $59, you walk out with four high capcity 'advanced' (aka, Ryobi's batteries with the best cells + a fuel gage) batteries and a charger and a smaller battery for $120 + tax. I'm also going to try to stack the HD Menards 11% match that's going on right now, which would bring it down to ~107 + tax, but this will be very YMMV.  Even without it, SO SO SO SO hot of a deal!
