Possible LISTING Mistake - Ace Hardware 12/3 SJTW Outdoor Extension Cord 100 foot - 2 pack ($74.99)

This appears to be a listing mistake, as the item is typically $74.99 for one. However, if you look at the page, it shows Color : ORANGE - 2 PACK.

I ordered online, and picked In-Store pickup to save an additional 15%, making it $63.74 + tax.

When I went to pick up the item, I showed the employee the receipt, which clearly shows in two locations that it should be a 2 pack. They honored the listing without any hassles.

Yes, I used the "forbidden" word in the title, so I fully expect down votes.

NOTE: This is the HEAVY DUTY extension cord, and is 12/3, not 14/3 or 16/3. Yes, you can get thinner extension cords, but they are not the same. You won't get a 12/3 for $37.50 each elsewhere.

As the other poster mentioned, there is a difference. Amazon basics that is similar to the Ace one is $50 per the below link.

The gauge matters if using power hungry tools and accessories.

Just search, there are a few, but only 16 gauge, not 12

They didnt cancel my order. Order it for In Store pickup, and not shipping if you can. It worked for me, multiple stores.

This is a legitimate m*stake that he or she got honored. I'd believe it can be duplicated in store, at least for now...so thumb up

I ordered on the day posted. Just picked up store called ace hq and they honored the mistake.

Stores are supposed to have to order in multiples of two.
