Festool is an international manufacturer and distributor of tools used for woodwork, building or construction. The company's catalogue of products includes dust extractors, routers and saws. Of course, it is always in the interest of the consumer to get the best price for a product, in order to save money. Hunting down a bargain means that you can save a few extra dollars for a rainy day. However, getting a discount is tricky, unless you are prepared to wait for a sale or promotion.

Log onto Festool's website and find out if it is running any special promotions, which enable you to get a discount on it's products. As of November 2010, it is running a "Fall Promotion". By printing off a voucher from it's home page, you can get a 10 per cent discount when you purchase certain products. Check back regularly to see if there is a promotion you can utilise.
Visit your nearest supplier of Festool equipment. To find this out, log onto the Festool's website and look under the section called, "Where to buy." Search for the shop closest to your postal address. Alternatively, call your local hardware store, to ask for advice.
Ask the sales assistant about in-store promotions. Often stores give a discount if you buy certain products or spend a certain amount of money.
Negotiate with the assistant, store owner or builder's yard. You might be able to trade in other unused equipment you have, for Festool products -- or obtain a discount using these items. If you don't ask, you won't know.
Check out second-hand Festool equipment at builders merchants, or online auctions. For example, industrial-auctions.com.au, or Liquidation.com auction industrial equipment, including by Festool. However, since owners list their items on the websites, the products available vary, and you might have to wait until something you need comes up.
Tips and warnings
- Shop around. Promotions and discounts vary from retailer to retailer, so you might need to locate a store that is closing down, or going into liquidation to get a discount.
