I came across a great deal over at Home Depot’s website the other day, where you can buy a Dewalt Deep Pro organizer for $20 and get a free 16-foot tape measure. But when I checked out the purchasing options, there’s no online availability, and only “limited quantity” in stores which disallows online ordering with in-store pickup.
I visited my local Home Depot, and there was no display where you could buy the special bundle.
This screams “holiday promo” to me.
The bonus tape measure, model DWHT33372, is a basic model with a retail value of about $13. But hey, free is free.

Looks like Home Depot has started stocking their holiday deals. I was going to buy a Dewalt Deep Pro 12 Compartment Organizer today, and lucked out to find that they were giving away a free 16′ tape measure with them.
There you have it – confirmation that this promo should be available in-store, at the holiday or seasonal section of physical Home Depot stores. Online ordering might eventually be enabled, but your best bet for now will be to stop by your local Home Depot store within the next week or so. My local Home Depot hasn’t started putting up their holiday tool promo displays yet, but they have been slow to do so in the past.
For my small parts and storage needs, Dewalt’s Deep Pro organizers are a bit too deep, and the compartments a bit too large. The shallow version, with Stanley branding, is a bit too expensive for what it offers. This is why this year I bought a couple more of the simpler Stanley 25 compartment organizers from Amazon. In addition to being more sturdily built, the Dewalt organizer also offers Sortmaster-like ability to connect multiple stacked organizers together for easier carrying.
If the free bonus tool part of this promo was instead the new Dewalt mini parts organizer, I would be far more interested. But don’t let me discourage you – I feel this is a great deal, and have been checking the Home Depot product page daily for an availability update. Since, at least for the time being, you have to buy the promo bundle in-store anyways, examine the Dewalt organizer for yourself to see if it’s rightly sized for your organizational needs.
Thanks Dennis, for the tip!
