Trade up to Festool between now and October 31st to receive $100 off via rebate on a new corded or cordless TS 55 track saw, HK 55 carpentry saw or OF-series plunge router! In my ~15 years being involved with Festool I have never seen a promotion offering the equivalent of up to 25% off on tools.

Step 1 - Order any qualifying tool
Step 2 - Register your tool online with Festool
Step 3 - Festool will provide you with a prepaid shipping label
Step 4 - Send Festool any tool, regardless of brand or condition, using the prepaid shipping label
Step 5 - Upon receipt of your old tool, Festool will issue you a $100 Mastercard (allow 4-6 weeks for processing)

Check our website for Festool $100 OFF promotion details and to order now.

What are you waiting for?! Ready, set, save $100!

@Festool USA can clarify, but there were no restrictions or definitions given for a "tool".

@nvalinski, there ya have it! Pretty sweet, eh? Festool would probably foot the bill for a tape measure than a radial arm saw as a trade in tool anyway.  [big grin]

The last two times I bought new Festools there was a sweet promotion like four days later. Perhaps I'll learn my lesson and stop purchasing.

Combined with the 10% package savings on CTs and MFTs, you can potentially save almost $200. Like I said, this type of discount is unprecedented in all my time being involved with Festool. At $100 off, that 26% off of the HK 55 BASIC, for instance.

Great opportunity to add a OF 1010 for LR32 or other tasks so you can have your OF 1400 dedicated to your CMS. Or, snag a smaller lighter TS 55 to supplement your TS 75.

I’m seriously considering it.  Need to do some reading though because I’m not too familiar with all the features and capabilities of the OF1010.

Have at least two older, but functional, sanders that I don’t like and won’t be missed.

Festool better hope Darcy doesn't see this promotion. [tongue]
For anyone that doesn't remember Darcy he loves restoring old industrial heavy iron woodworking machines.

On a more serious note, it might be fun to try and think about the smallest, lightest weight items we can send in to save Festool a bit on money on shipping.  After all this is a pretty good deal.

Sound advice, Brice.  [thumbs up]

Let's definitely do Festool right and help them keep the costs of the promotion down so we might see more of these in the future.

I wonder what Festool is going to do with the old tools they receive?   A lot maybe be completely worthless, but maybe some could be sold for parts or scrap metal?

Having been on "the inside", I don't think these will be resold. There's too much of a liability risk if someone got hurt using a trade-in tool. Even if they were donated, there would be a risk of liability.

Got my attention. I've been looking for a rationale/deal to get an 18v drill. [scratch chin] Bear with me here...

Assuming the Festool 201371 HKC 55 Cordless AirStream Track Saw PLUS runs on the standard TS tracks and uses the same batteries as the 18V drills:

HKC 55 ($645 - $100) $545 plus a bare PDC 18 $350 totals $895 to get fully cordless track saw + drill/driver.

Plus the cost of the HF tape measure of course...

Ad Edit:  oops!  already asked and answered.

Do you have any idea what’s happening to these tools?  Hopefully some cool/good like going to a charitable organization (e.g. Habit for Humanity)

Aw heck, I really thought I was done buying Festool (already having everything I could want), but even though I already have an OF1440, the OF1010 at $100 off in exchange for the nonworking Porter Cable router I dropped on the floor but never threw out seems awfully tempting.

Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill, etc. take tools from individuals no questions asked. Why would there be liability for a corporate donor?

I bought an HKC literally Thursday. If there had been any sort of hint that there was going to be a promotion to come, I would have waited. When the free batteries promotion came down I had gotten my ship notice for my TSC55 an hour before.

I believe it is valid for purchases since August 1 so it qualifies. Maybe verify that, though.

No, you're right, the Festool website does give that date. I guess I can be less irritated now.

I legit want to get rid of my previous cordless circular saw, but I guess Festool would rather have back something lighter?

Per the email from Festool USA (via the linked site):

Quote
I just recently bought a tool. Can I still submit it?
Purchases dated from August 1, 2018 to October 31, 2018 will qualify for the campaign.

So... I can find a new toy at the Festool Connect and get in just under the wire  [wink]

Great opportunity to add a OF 1010 for LR32

That's the hook for me.  $470.00 - $100.00 = 21.3 % discount. Few of these come up in the Recon sales so it does seem to be a good opportunity. I was kind of hoping for another $150.00 sander... and $ 50 gift certificate but that is likely a lesson learned to the Festool Marketing wizards.

Old power tools have scads of copper so probably crates will he shipped to a recycler to live again in a Kapex motor.

Haven't seen this question asked yet nor mentioned on the website that I can find:  Can an individual or business take advantage of this multiple times (ex.:  get two tools and get $200.00)?

Great promotion- got enough track saws myself, but can you ever have too many routers?

@Gerald_D - great question! No limits to the number of tools that you can purchase and utilize the promo savings. So, the sky's the limit. Router up, buddy.
