I was passing through B&Q's mini-warehouse in Perth yesterday when I came across a display for this 18 volt combi drill by Makita. It's has 1.3amh red batteries, but I can't remember if there were 2 or 3 in the deal. It also came in a quality box with accessories - screwdriver bits and drill bits. I didn't have time to have a good look, but that's a fabulous in-store price. I know they are £179.99 from Screwfix (another company within the B&Q group), plus this has the accessory set, plus you can have a 10% discount as follows:
- Grab a granny (or indeed grandad) and take them along on a Wednesday and get their diamond (OAP) discount; or
- Open a trade account. It's basically a store card, but without interest. Not sure if these are open for trade only, but I applied and received one in store abnout 6 months ago despite telling the assistant that I'm not a tradesman. Every purchase you make thereafter over £50 attracts a 10% discount, any day of the week. Full payment is due end of the month following the month of the invoice.
This is a good drill at a great price, plus you get the accessory set.
Hope you guys like it.
