Earlier this week, we talked about some surprising Milwaukee Tool deal math at Home Depot. Here, Round 2 will focus on Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0 tool box combos and bundles.
Dewalt’s ToughSystem 2.0 tool storage system is a fantastic line that has been expanding with additional tool boxes, bags, organizers, and accessories. The tool boxes are strong, durable, easy to connect, and very versatile.
Before we begin, I should point out that Home Depot isn’t the only retailer that has multiple similar-seeming listings at confusingly different price points. This is just the nature of shopping on the internet these days.
Let’s start off with this 3pc assortment of Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0 tool boxes.
The holiday shopping season is mostly wrapped up, and so a lot of products are back up to full price now.
Next up, we have a Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0 3pc tool box combo kit, featuring the same SKUs (according to Home Depot’s specs).
Okay, so the first SKU looks to be a combined assortment bundle, where this SKU is for the 3pc combo tower. Both show up as single SKU combos in the online shopping cart.
Looking at other retailers’ catalogs, they have different combos at $249 and $269 price points, depending on whether the middle box is a large or extra-large size. But here, it looks like both purchase routes are for the same exact 3 tool boxes.
I have seen multiple ways to purchase the same tools before, but almost always at identical pricing. This is strange and interesting, but let’s move on.
So, buying one of each tool box separately gives you the 3pc combo for $239 with free shipping (as of the time of this posting).
This is the least expensive way to get the 3pc Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0 tool box combo right now. Right?
But then there’s also this other listing. You get the small tool box, large tool box, rolling tool box, and an open tool tray. The tool tray can be used separately or inside the larger tool boxes.
Price? $178 with free shipping. This beats Home Depot’s Black Friday 2022 pricing, which featured a 3pc ToughSystem 2.0 combo with organizer, large tool box, and rolling tool box for $199.
If you’re looking to buy into the Dewalt ToughSystem tool storage system, the 3pc combo is a very popular way to go. And with this deal, $178 is as good as it gets right now.
To sum it up, there are 3 different prices for the 3pc tool box bundle, and then there’s this 4pc bundle, where you get 1 additional component – the tool tray – and for a lower price overall.
Although often confusing, I love it when tool deal math works out like this.
