Amazon is doing their thing again, offering ridiculous prices on screws and other fasteners. This time they’re actually acknowledging it, telling people about their “bargain screws” with “up to 92%” savings.
I’ve purchased fasteners from Amazon before and although it’s usually a good experience, finding the sizes you need can be challenging.
I’ve been scoring these cheap fasteners from Amazon/Small Parts since May. Since the prices are so low, I kept this secret to myself, or so I thought…lol
I don’t search by size, instead I filter the pricing. My patience sifting through 800+ pages paid off in spades. My best score was 1/4″x5″ stainless bolts snagged at 21 cents per bag of 10. Of course I bought 10 bags. Will I ever use all these bolts before I die? Probably not, but I’ll probably use at least 50 of them over the course of a few years. 2 cents a piece for stainless…gotta love it.
I purchased a bunch of stainless steel socket cap screws a while back, and they haven’t been restocked. Amazon itself is putting the word out about the sale, so I thought it justified to relay the info.
I’ve searched for fasteners using a variety of search and browsing techniques, and it’s a pain in the butt every time. Not all fasteners are listed, either. They shop up if I click on them in my wishlist or cart, but not if in the search. Go figure.
