I noticed the Leviton CR020-W 20-Amp (white) are priced at $1.44/outlet. Is this a good price for a 20amp outlet?

same price at home depot (amazon is probably matching them)

also something to note is that these are the wire wrap-around type, not push in type (how it connects to the wiring in the wall)

This should be seen as a positive; push in is looked down on by electricians.

I'm sorry, what's the difference between industrial heavy duty and residential usage? Will the industrial outlet not fit in a regular electrical box? or it would not be up to residential code standard?

no. they are all same size and will work just fine. main difference is how thick are contacts and plating. industrial have much thicker contacts and plating. i dont have exact #'s, but basically residential grade could be 26awg and this 22awg.. so it's designed to work for 5-10x plugs/unplugs more than residential.

What? I don't see install options. It's a receptacle/outlet. Why would installation/upgrade of breaker be included in this post for an outlet?

Edit: so you're referring to a different product that you linked to... well, no they won't touch the breaker.

___________
Removing existing outlets
Installing customer-supplied 20A outlet at existing location
Confirm proper function of outlet
Service does not include moving outlet to a new location
Additional outlets may result in an updated estimate from provider

It's not just about the breaker, the wire should also be 12GA instead of 14GA. So if you don't have 12GA in the walls then there's no point getting 20Aamps outlets (although getting industrial will provide extra wear and tear for usage). If someone tells you you can just up the breaker to 20amp even if your wiring is only 14GA you should avoid them at all costs since in that case wire becomes your weakest link and a fuse under load instead of breaker.

With this being an industrial rated receptacle it should really be used in general home use as its not TR (tamper resistant) and is not up to current code for home use. Sure TR receptacles suck especially when they are on the cheaper side but if you have any work with needs to be inspected use the right thing so you aren't told to swap them out.

On a 20 amp circuit with 12 gauge wire, can I put a 20 amp outlet first in series and then 15amp for the rest? That way I can use something needing more than 15 amps on that one outlet and not have to buy all 20 amp receptacles.

Unless codes changed, you don't need a 20 amp outlet at all as long as you have more than 1 outlet on the circuit. 20 amp outlets are only required if you only have 1 outlet on the circuit.

For longer explanation this is decent summary

You just said there is no point in getting these if you don't have 12Ga wire and then, literally, listed a reason why you should. (see bolded) The 20 amp receptables are built to a higher standard than residential ones. I use these types in my high usage areas where there is constant plugging and unplugging. Even then, after 10-15 years they get a bit jiggly..
15 amp outlets have two vertical sockets, 20 amp outlets have the addition of the horizontal notch in the socket. Some devices can only be used on 20 amp circuits and will have a horizontal plug to be sure it's used on a 20 amp circuit. So, using a 20 amp outlet on a 15 amp circuit would be potentially dangerous and out of code.
