FS: 16/3 50 foot extension cords in flat rate box

Hey all,

 

As I move away from AC-based lights, I suppose I don't need the 200+ extension cords that were required of my 192 channel LOR display...  These are almost all identical cords.  They are dark green, 50 foot, landscaping-type extension cords with 16 AWG wiring.  I just went out and was able to easily fit six of these into a USPS Large Flat Rate Priority box, which ships anywhere in the U.S. for $16.50, so that is $2.75 per extension cord (would be $2.35 if I find I can fit seven into that box... I didn't really try super hard to get six of them in there, so seven might be possible).  These sell for $15 at Home Depot and the like...how does $7.50 per cord sound?  Extension cords don't really go bad... these all look great.  So these would be shipped for right around $10 per cord.

 

PM me if interested.

 

Thanks,

And as always, I am open to offers, but I will give preference to those offering full price obviously.

Considering I get a green landscaping cord with the triple tap built right on the end for around $5.00, occasionally gotten them for as low as $3.00/each at Big Lots locally, so I'd be somewhat hard-pressed to spend more than what I was able to pick mine up for locally and no shipping charges.     But that's my area, others could be different.

Please tell me where in Orlando you are getting 50 FOOT outdoor extension cords for that price as I would love to come by some.  I am in Orlando at least once a month (live out on the coast in Melbourne) and I haven't seen prices that low since the early 2000's...

 

Just checked Big Lots and they have these comparable 20 footers for $6

Outdoor extension cord prices at one store are generally linear in cost because of the cost of copper... so that would put a 50 footer at.... wait for it... $15... just like I said in my original post.

was in Big Lots looking at the current Halloween stuff they just put out and went over to the Garden area where they start clearing stuff out for the Holiday décor and saw some 50 footers just as I stated above for $4.50.  But they didn't have very many and may be gone by now.   I didn't need any more, so didn't bother to pick any up.    I'm in Orlando, Florida,{far East side of Orlando} about 70 miles give or take from Melbourne, FL.   Get over there every so often to visit my sister that lives there.
