DEWALT First Responder Discount
As a special thank you to those who bravely step forward during challenging times and arrive first at dangerous sites, DeWalt offers an additional 10% off discount to eligible first responders such as police, firefighters, EMTs and search and rescue professionals. However, in order to prevent misuse of this discount, there will be a quick verification process required in order to qualify.
DEWALT is proud to partner with the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) on a nationwide program that helps users recycle used rechargeable batteries and old cellphones at DEWALT service centers. As an incentive, RBRC will give participants an instant $10 discount on battery purchases at participating DeWalt locations throughout April.
Power Tool Scams
DEWALT and Milwaukee Tool have issued warnings in recent weeks cautioning shoppers to watch out for scam posts on Facebook advertising power tool liquidation sales, offering tools at unbeatably low prices. When VERIFY conducted a reverse image search of these posts, it was discovered that they led to websites not authorized retailers of these tools.
Despite the best efforts of companies like these, consumers still become victims to scams. For instance, a recent Facebook post advertising a sale on full pallets of Milwaukee tools led to a website which appears to be owned by Russians.
Fortunately, there are numerous resources for public safety officers to locate discounts. From comprehensive lists of available deals to individual retailer pages, the most efficient way to locate a deal is by using your browser’s find tool which lets you filter for specific terms like first responder.
