RYF!

ONE DOLLAR

I don't see it mentioned on SlickDeals yet. So keep it on the down low until all the MRFs have had their fill.

That's weird. I have repeatedly reloaded the page. And it still shows as $1.
I've put 8 of them in the shopping cart. Reloaded page. Still shows as $1.
Here I am at checkout for 8 of them.

Well I placed the order. So far so good.
If it doesn't get cancelled I'm all set.

I even switched browsers and used Safari (which I rarely use).

Just to be sure nothing funky was going on with the direct link, this time I went to Home Depot site and searched for "50' 12-Gauge Outdoor Extension Cord". Same $1 cable popped up.

Maybe the online price is location based?

Perhaps Home Depot has started their micro-targeting campaigns?

ONLY FOR YOU, d4!

So assuming this shows up at $1.00, how do you feel about purchasing this item below cost knowing HD will lose money on this item?

If it costs them enough to hurt, they'll cancel the order. Fine print, space-time.

Or looking at it another way, how do you feel about paying $17.49 to ship an $8 purchase.

Getting $32.55.

It's really odd that only one person is seeing this.

But if I saw that add, I'd be in for three or four.

This is assuming that d4 didn't get his DNS hijacked and is seeing a fake ad.

But as a real HD page, it could be a mistake or a loss-leader (though a really great one).

Either way, I'd be in.

If they cancel the mistake, ok.

If they don't, then A-OK.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

shipping only adds $2.18 per item, so still a heck of a deal for a total cost that is 10x lower than normal price.

Now why only 8, is there a limit? why not 45 to get free shipping?

That would really maximize their loss (and the awesomeness of the deal).

From the product description the "Product Weight (oz.)" is 103.68 oz, that's 6.48 lbs. 8 of them is 51.84 lbs. 45 of them would be 291.6 lbs, that's quite a deal with free shipping.

Interesting - in the HD app, it says 32.55, then the next screen says 1.00, but when added to cart, goes back to 32.55 each.

Thanks for the heads up!

Getting $32.xx as well. I say 45 of them and resell for $2 each. 100% profit!

EDIT: IS that a half mile? 45*50'?

I refrained from buying 45 of them because if it is some sort of glitch and the price unwittingly rolls to the $32 that everyone else is seeing, I don't want a $1500 surprise charge on my card and then I'll have to lug +200lbs of extension cords back to Home Depot. I ordered a reasonable 4 cords. Total price with tax and shipping came to 15 bucks. I'll keep a couple and give a couple away if they arrive.

If anything, to get the free shipping, I could've tacked on some drill bits. Or that pole saw I've been eyeing. But then they might send me the drill bits after they cancel the cords. The item I wanted in the first place. Come on now. This ain't my first rodeo. Hah.

You can always challenge the charge to your CC. I say order a few more as you may have a need someday. We are all seeing $32, so if you can get an extra 10+, you might as well give it a try.

Put them on the "For Sale & Free Items" portion. I'll give a clean shine Lincoln!

I have an email confirmation with order number and an estimated arrival date of Aug 7 which doesn't really mean much. It's been 24 hours and no cancellation email yet though!

There's probably at least $20 worth of copper in that thing.

I too don't see $1
