If you know someone that works in a doctors office or hospital, just ask them if they have any pens. They will give you a (profanity)ful of them for free.

8 cents a pen!? In this economy, that's outrageous!!

8 cents a pen!??!! thats exPENSive!!!!

It's actually 6 to 7 cents a pen. And for those type of click style pens it's not that bad if we were talking about just your typical bic with a cap then yes. But for a decent heft/bulk clicker it's not a bad price at all.

Makes for a great baby shower gift!

Retail price of $125? That has to be the real misprint.

Does anyone know if they will work with a Mac?

Wow. This is great for any parent with a bunch of kids going back to school... or really any student who isn't picky about their pens. Awesome!

@alfredenigma: the days of doctor office/hospital pen freebies have gone by the wayside...grumble grumble conflict of interest grumble grumble

Just an observation- I've seen a deal like this posted before and it goes popular. Sponsored, it gets beat down, why is that? Just curious.

@drhardcrab: "Does anyone know if they will work with a Mac?" Thanks alot I just woke up my wife laughing.

@creamsteve: I don't know if I'd want a bunch of germy pens from doctors' offices. Another deals.wooter said his wife is a nurse and when patients ask for a pen she tells them to keep it.
I like getting a box 'o pens in the mail, and giving some away to friends. It's like a poor person's Christmas.

Snapped these up a while back and still have plenty after numberous public events where people steal your pen. I work for an insurance company that used to give out pens like oxygen, but the economy has clamped down on things like that. I bet it is the same for doctors and pharm reps. I think I only had one or two that were broken and got a few mechanical pencils as well! At one public event they even tried to steal my examples that were taped down to the table instead of getting a freebie one in a package. It was a grab and run day!

I bought a box 'o pens a year or so ago, and brought them with me to various Boy Scout trainings (youth and adult) so people had something to write with in case they forgot theirs (not really very "Be Prepared" of them, but hey, they were in training!). The pen quality was excellent (writing-wise), and all were black ink, which I prefer. I would say they all wrote better than any stick pen that compares in price.

@itanzil: Suggest you check the pens first to be sure it does not have misprinted ads for Viagra,Trojans etc.

I was wondering the same thing. (I don't need pens, but if I did...)

I'm a waitress and have about 3-5 pens stolen every night...this is perfect.

I did this once, only about 15 pens actually worked out of the lot.

Bought several pounds of pens on a deals.woot promo about a year ago. I figured that I could keep enough pens at home so that I wouldn't have to worry about running out of them and donate the rest to my kid's schools (who are always short of office supplies).

My daughter sorted all of the pens - there were about 5-6 broken pens (really just parts) and 2-3 that didn't write. The rest worked great and, while misprinted, were excellent pens. My daughter wanted to keep about 10 that were really 'premium' (nice grips, excellent styling, etc), we also kept about 10 more for home use and then donated the rest to the schools.

The schools were ecstatic to have them - between having a hard time buying office supplies and pens that 'disappear' they said that they were always short of pens. I'll probably buy some more this time for them also.

@mjg1675: I bought 6 lbs from another outfit, and 99% were great. Even had 10+ 4-way pens. There were over 350 pens total, and less than 10 were in pieces, and all were click type, and the good kind of click type, not the el-cheapo. Not one failed to work. I was so impressed, I ordered 4 lbs for my nephew. That batch had problems. Every one of those (from GraveYardMall) had the same logo, boring. That said, it all depends on the retailer. Who knows. Definitely worth the gamble.

I've done this. Lots of good pens. I got a lot of Grainger promo pens which are huge, so I probably didn't get as much as if I got some of the smaller pens. I'd reccomend this. I have more pens than I'll need for at least a decade. [Though oddly enough, I tend to carry a nice pen, and keep a ziplock of 10 or so of these in the car.]

How did this get 66 downvotes?

Edit: and all of mine were retractable.

I went for a 3lbs box from another company and still have a ton left, even after gifting a bunch. There was almost a dozen 4-color pens and a few dozen gel pens. I don't know about this company exactly, but it's definitely worth the gamble... after gifting, I think all my coworkers agree.
