Limited Quantity + Questionable Listings: 1000-Count Disposable Gloves sold directly by Amazon

+9 Deal Score
1,755 Views
Hello, I hope you are doing well.

Update: I received my two orders and they are 1,000 gloves per order! This was indeed a price mistake.

Amazon.com is directly selling and shipping 1000-count disposable gloves by Cordova Safety Products at very low prices, with very low quantities. Shipping is free with Prime.

The listings are questionable because they are 50% to 80% off. For what it's worth, the listed weights are correct, and each listing has two text mentions of "1,000" with one image showing "1000 pack." Please note there is the chance you will receive fewer than 1,000 gloves.Author's Note regarding potential thumbs down
  • Years ago, I used to post pr*ce m*stake and low quantity deals regularly, and I think many other Slickdeals members did, too. However, over the last few years, such threads have been thumbed down significantly more often, so these deal threads are rarely posted. I still post them from time to time to gauge how the community feels, but do understand a lot of people do not care for them. Searching for and posting these deals obviously take a lot of time, and my postings are purely for the benefit of the Slickdeals community, so if they aren't welcomed - I predict many thumbs down - I will take note and decrease my postings of these deals. Thank you for your understanding.
Enjoy!

Price Analysis Bottom Line
  • My personal "purchase point" for disposable gloves is 3.9 cents per glove.
  • The products posted in this thread range from 0.73 cents to 2.3 cents per glove.
Quick Reference
  • Regular prices of disposable gloves at major retailers:
    • Costco Wholesale: 4.99 cents per Kirkland Signature glove
    • Home Depot: 14.98 cents per HDX glove
    • Harbor Freight: 7 cents per Hardy glove
Detailed Price Tracking
  • This spreadsheet of mine provides price tracking information, history, and other details. The highlighted blue row is the lowest-price product from this deal.
Comparing Disposable Gloves
  • Disposable glove prices are somewhat difficult to compare due to:
    • difference in material (e.g., latex, nitrile, vinyl); and
    • difference in thickness (generally, 3 mil to 6 mil)
  • My purchase point for disposable gloves does not fully take into account material and thickness.
  • Click here for a glove selection guide [berkeley.edu].
  • Restaurant supply stores in some regions may offer very competitive prices.
General Note
  • I am not comparing apples to apples, so to speak, and this brand may usually have a higher price than some other brands. Of course, there may be other, more personalized factors to consider, including warehouse club memberships; shipping fees; product quantities; subscription programs such as Amazon's Subscribe & Save and Target's Subscriptions; convenience of stores and locations; and availability of cashback programs.

A TD isn't always about not appreciating the deal, Tofu. It's often about burying a deal so that others can't see it. This is particularly true for pea rice miss steaks Wink

Thanks for your insight, with which I agree. Sometimes, comments are much more important than thumbs up.

Oh, "pea rice miss steaks" had me cracking up.

Don't know about these per se, but I'd suggest using different ones for raw vs cooked...unless you like salmonella. Wink

I meant like which gloves are safe to handle for raw / cooked chicken. Of course, I would not use the same gloves I just handled raw meat with to touch other foods. I don't know if the kind of material would be safe to usage on food since i've seen food workers use plastic gloves at costco.

Office Depot had something similar where they had 100 qty boxes on clearance for .49.

I didn't believe it until I received my order of 21 boxes in the mail.

Now I can be Howard Hughes or Dexter.

Nitrile is good for food, raw or cooked

Actually, unless you have a cut on your hand washing thoroughly with soap & water is better (and IMHO safer since you don't lose dexterity). Otherwise, any non-porous gloves should do but tougher is better since a lot of the commercially available stuff can tend to break/tear (think fingernails, bones, whatever) negating any benefits. It's also better for the environment. Peace
