Last year I started using HD Supply for most of the stuff I keep in stock. With an account set up they give next day shipping with no minimum. As far as the amount of stuff they keep in stock it's probably a bit more than a Home Depot or Lowe's. The prices they give me with my account are probably still just a bit more then supply house.

I normally buy the 3m wire nuts from platt electric. It's the cheapest per wire but include shipping cost per nut. When I order the orange blue nuts are about 7 cents each ( shipping included). I just bought 200 rolls of 3m temflex black tape from eBay for about 79 cents for each roll with shipping per unit included. They are in good condition.

Now did you use Amazon because these firms will not sell direct ?

I'm not sure if I understand your question

As a random data point (and probably not the best example), Amazon has the P&S CRB5362-W 20A receptacle for $2.98. Platt has it listed for $9.57. Gordon has it listed for $2.69 with $10.00 shipping.

At a certain point, inertia takes over. I buy a lot from Amazon. The account is already set up. If I can avoid driving somewhere for a few cents more, I will do it.

Also, a while back I knew I was going to be short on 4" boxes. I didn't want to take time to drive to the SH, so I ordered 30 Steel City boxes from Amazon. I have Amazon Prime, so I knew they would be here two days later with free shipping.


You can also get some great deals on tools on Amazon. Using CamelCamelCamel helps.
