Husky Ratcheting Wrench Set Sale At Home Depot

Home Depot has a special "Christmas Only" sale going on at its brick-and-mortar stores ONLY.
I was told it was limited to the number on hand at each store, but dunno if true.
These are $20 and are available in both metric and SAE sizes.
The Metric is 8 - 10 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 17.
The pack's "selling holder" is pretty heavy plastic and can be used to hang the tools on pegboard and has deep slots to hold them in place - and even two darts whose ends can be clipped to further secure the tools to the pack - pretty clever!

Following is the info on the $55 and $40 versions; the $20 set is NOT on HD's website.

The only differences I could tell between the three sets - apart from the big price difference - are that the $20 "Special Sale Only" set does not have a reversing lever (gotta flip 'em over), is a 12-point, and is straight on both ends.
The $55 set has the reversing lever, is 6-point, and has a 15° offset on the closed end.
The $40 set has the same specs as the $55 set, at least per the website, so am puzzled on their differences.
Both of the expensive sets state they include a flex-head wrench, but the size is not specified nor shown. I forgot to check this in the store to see if it truly includes an eighth wrench.

For half the cost, I did not think the reversing and offset features were worth the price difference. The 6-point feature would have really been nice v. the 12-pointers, but... The $20 set still has HD's Lifetime Warranty.
