These are the BEST Black Friday 2021 deals on cordless drills that I have found so far.

For all you regulars reading this – do you agree or disagree with my picks? Let me know in comments!

There are plenty of other cordless drill deals, sales, and special buys this season, and many of them are worthwhile purchases as well. But for this post, I tried to consider the needs of most Black Friday deals shoppers.

Which is the best cordless drill here? That doesn’t matter – I tried to sort them into categories that might help you select the best one for you.

All of the cordless drills mentioned here can handle most lighter to medium duty drilling and driving tasks with ease. The two least expensive basic models won’t perform as well as their peers, but that’s to be expected at such price points.

What Would ToolGuyd Buy RIGHT NOW?

I have purchased, used, or reviewed nearly all of the cordless drills listed below. Frankly, you can’t go wrong with most of them. I tried to list the drills in preferential order, with my favorites at the top and least favorite or unvetted models below them.

The two standout deals to me are the Dewalt Xtreme Subcompact drill and impact driver kit and the Metabo HPT 18V brushless drill and impact driver kit. Most of the other deals are perfectly fine but these deliver a little more for the money – these are the best deals of the season. But, these choices are not for everyone.

If you don’t know what to buy, go for my favorite no-compromise option, the Milwaukee M18 compact brushless drill kit. However, the Dewalt 20V Max Atomic drill kit is also a fantastic model, and it’s bundled with 2 batteries instead of just 1.

Please let me know if you have any questions – I’d be glad to help!

Don’t Forget the Drill Bits!

If you’re buying a new cordless drill kit for someone else, don’t forget to get them some drill bits to go along with it.

Even if you’re buying a new cordless drill for yourself, you could probably use some drill bits yourself, right? Here are some drill bit deals to consider.

Dewalt 14pc Drill Bit Set – $9.98 via Amazon
Milwaukee 15pc Impact Drill Bit Set – $15 at Home Depot
Dewalt 130pc Set with Case: $29.88 via Home Depot
Diablo SpeeDemon 10pc Blade Drill Bit Set – $12.88

These are listed in order of preference. The Skil would be my pick, and in my experience it greatly outperforms the other budget brands’ 18V/20V Max options.

My favorite pick here is the Dewalt Xtreme 12V Max cordless drill. Since there’s no promo on just the drill, the next best thing is the upcoming deal on the combo kit.
