That deal ran from about June 6th till June 20th. I found it on slickdeals.com. You can set up alerts based on keywords. I had a ryobi alert since I know my batteries were about gone. Now, $300 later I've got 6 new 3 or 4ah batts and and 2 tools (well, one is the boombox which is pretty sweet).

Photos of the boombox up at our camp, and obligatory one of Ryobi imapct and the L8 after cutting 14" of camp "grass".

I see the 7.25" saw is brushless. You will definitely want to stick with Ryobi Lithium+HP which works directly with the brushless tools. I do not have any but they are supposed to be powerhouses. Good Luck!
Instead of the saw I ended up getting their P2810 Chemical Sprayer for the garden. I actually ordered the P2800A without battery and charger, but I had to return it because it arrived damaged, and Home Depot gave me the kit at no extra cost! What a great tool this is for applying fungicide to my plants (my hands ached from trying to use those 32oz spray bottles before). Iíll probably use it for Sevin as well.

Nice, always good to keep the digits working as long as possible. I feel the same would apply to a battery powered caulk gun.

I didn't know that Ryobi made one of those! I do not do enough caulking to warrant buying one, though...

I've developed 'tigger finger' in both hands this year (I should say it has just become more inconvenient than in the past). The sprayer, impact driver, and drill driver make projects easier to work on. And having the one-battery-fits-all is really nice.
