Either a deal on polo shirts (box of 36 for $8-12) or I've made a mistake...
Posted by: Paul F.
Date: December 13, 2021 01:37PM
So.. I was looking to order ONE or TWO polo shirts...
Found these on Amazon. Then, noticed one of the options is "Box of 36". For the blue ones, a box of 36 in my size is $350.
But, in black, in my size, a box of 36 is $12....

So, in a couple weeks, I'm either getting ONE shirt, or a box of 36...
I can understand why this is the #1 item in polo shirts on Amazon...

Good luck to any who roll the dice betting on a price mistake!

$12, even for one, is a good price.
If your number hits and you get 36, you will have a closet like Steve Jobs, except in blue and polo not turtleneck.

Hmmm. In my size, the only option for the box of 36 was the navy, and the price plus shipping came to about $19. I'm not sure if that's a decent price for one, but went ahead with rolling the dice, since I noticed that they were also listed as free returns ... so if I want to do the return, I can always rightfully claim it was an inaccurate website description.

PeterB;

My thinking exactly...

And, so far, it's hit my card for a pre-auth for the $12 plus $8.59 shipping price (about $22, I forget now)...
So, at least they didn't charge $12x36!

The navy shirts, box of 36, come in sub $20 in some sizes, then jumps to the $350 price on others.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Yup. Exactly why it looks like a price mistake to me... There's no way that a $9.72 shirt is going to go for under .70 in a different size/color...
But, if they have some weird oversupply, I'm happy to get some work shirts out of it!

A totally fair conclusion to reach, LOL.
I have a couple similar ones (50-50 poly-cotton) and, they're not great, but, they're worth sixty cents each!

Well, 36 shirts for $17.69 is a deal I can live with, especially if it's really free returns (if it proves to be only one shirt). If it's really 36, then about 30 will go to the local charity. Happy Crimble! And thanks, Paul.

When I was working in the paint department I would have been all over this deal.
Do you know how easy it is to ruin a shirt working in the paint department? grinning smiley

I assume these will be really inexpensive cheap shirt, not long lived.

Must love or at least like Black or Navy Blue.

To get any reasonable wear out of them, one will probably have to rotate the wear cycle — wear once, wash in Gentle cycle, and not wear until all 35 others have been worn.

Maybe consider them as disposable, or get a job in a paint department.

Buyers are doing well to manage expectations, which I opine should be kept quite low.

I got the Costco jeans deal, and they're — OK for ~$5/pr.





In for one (36 pack).

Thank you, Paul.

Even if they're worn only two or three times each, that's a fair amount of shirts for a fin.

Oh and I also noticed that the shipping is such that they don't arrive until 1/5 ... giving LOTS of time for them to cancel out the order as a price mistake...

If they're really Jerzees brand, that's Fruit of the Loom (Berkshire Hathaway).

36 in Black, 3X for $20.40 shipped; 56¢ each, lot cheaper than buying tees!

I was patiently waiting for the Paul F. clothing boutique to open, with Exclusive Deals Deals Deals offered on polo shirts for select clientele.

FWIW, I got my shipping confirmation email a few minutes ago: Your package will arrive: Wednesday, December 29 - Wednesday, January 5.

Less than half a buck each. The good thing (assuming they even show up) is that even if I hate them, I can donate them to a local charity.

I just got the same exact email. I'm guessing it'll be a single shirt for the $19, and then I'll have to either eat the $19 or deal with the return.

Yup...
I expect that it may indeed be a single shirt, in which case I'll file a claim with Amazon... (I screen shot the original order saying "box of 36"). But, I also expect I'll just eat it if they want me to return it. You roll the dice, you take your chances, right?
