Please, do not be an immature spoiled and entitled brat and thumb down a deal only because YOUR local store doesn't happen to have it in stock. Sharing good deals like these eventually benefits everyone and that's what this forum is for. Your turn to get a good deal will come next time.

You can either hope your walmart has it for this price, pay the ridiculously inflated 3rd party seller price on amazon or buy it for less than $2 on ebay everyday (shipped from china of course)

Okay, how about I thumbs down it because you called all your readers immature spoiled brats? That's a REALLY good way to try to sell something!

Funny! Needed to magnetize a screwdriver yesterday........... I pulled a magnet from friends refrigerator.

Using multiple one directional strokes will result in your metal item being magnetized. Random non-directional strokes are needed to demagnetize.

Any magnet will work. Magnetic screwdrivers can be useful for some work. Mostly, not............

That only works when you have a friend, who has a refrigerator, with a strong magnet stuck to it (the weak ones don't magnetize too well). Wink

Klein Tools makes a fancy one in the form of a keychain for $10:

The ones I got from Walmart are fine, oversized magnetizers, good for anyone who often works with screws. That bright green color makes them easy to spot in a toolbox. All comparable ones retail around $5 and above, so $1.24 is slick. Below is a picture showing the size against a coin. Red one is $1 from ebay. The black cube is an old classic that currently retails around $6.They all do their job quite well, magnetizing and demagnetizing.

When you post a YMMV deal you should know that you'll probably get thumbs down for being "unable to replicate" by some people. Also when you put a comment like that in the OP many people will thumb it down automatically. You are basically just burying your own deal.

However, it is available by me and I'll see if I can get one because it looks like a nice find.

Yes I see what's happening. However, this is the simple logic of a triggered snowflake. I have already got this deal and have no more personal interest or benefit from posting it in a public forum.

I post it simply to share a good deal info, so that others can benefit.

By downvoting and burying the deal, snowflakes are harming only themselves. They are like a spoiled entitled brat who thinks he will harm his mommy by banging his own head against the wall Head Bang
