I dunno but consider this ... I find this anecdotal experience very
interesting. About 8yrs ago i bought a 250' roll of 10/2 Romex elect-hookup
wire it cost me $32+7% tax and a yr ago I wanted to buy another of same
product but the price was $280 at same store + 7.75 tx.. local tiny town
feed & hwd. lowest price i found via google was still over $200 ... so i
just could not afford it but i also had noticed that Southwire had
virtually cornered the market anywhere I looked via Google ..
FF to just 2wks ago I noticed that copper was dumping big time, mines
closing cause price had gone below production cost. (this pure speculation
but I figured the shooting war is no longer consuming copper, just mostly
big boomer's) I first went to ebay and found a price of $80-90 so with $30
shipping i thought ok I need this so lets do it and I clicked on an ad
within the Ebay auction search pg that was a mail-order hwd co (Audubon hwd
co) and yet when i got to the add that was for $78 I found yep buy it now
.. low ship but in the description it was not 10/2 but was 14/2 so 1/2 the
copper, won't carry the load that 10/2 will.
So I then went ahead and bought from ebay dealer it is now in transit but
now since that day 10days ago almost all urls I visit like weather channel
plus any google search on anything i am getting not only the (A-hwd store)
but other stores displayed saying 10/2 but when i have clicked on all these
they are misleading, just to cost these cheats money I c on every new pg I
get, it still really offers the 14/2 product this is on weather channel
plus several other news type channels i reg visit... plus the same ad
displays however often i click the url.
Do you dudes connect the same dots as I?
I am mildly irritated, but only that goog is being a whore for a gyp-ass
seller and I find that offensive. I would have praised Goog if they had led
me to a bargin instead of a cheat that must be picking up sales and once u
buy it's yours. I would not have known till i received a worthless product.
