Home Depot Tape Measure Gift Cards – Review
In the race to provide the most over-the-top gift card (Best Buy apparently has one that plays videos), Home Depot now offers one with a built-in level and tape measure. Yep, built right into the gift card. It sounds strange, we know, but it’s actually pretty cool.
They were good enough to send us one to look at and to be honest, we were expecting something pretty cheesy. But when it got here, we have to admit to being impressed with the little thing. We’re not saying that it’s going to be replacing your Stanley Fat Max tape measure, but it will definitely find its way into your kitchen junk drawer and come in handy at some point when you’re trying to hang a picture.
The tape measure goes up to six feet and there’s a little release button for bringing it back in. The level works fine and the whole package is very light, being just a little bigger than a standard gift card.
Surprisingly, the souped-up gift card doesn’t cost any more than a regular one. So if you’re going the gift certificate route, why not get one that comes with a few around the house tools?
The new gift cards are currently not available online, but can be had at brick and mortar Home Depots.
