    I got all excited for a moment thinking maybe the Power Slinky would be part of this deal. Tis not! They're discounted, but not as much.
    These are fantastic strings, especially for 24.75" or less scale necks.

    And what's with $6 for shipping? They fit in a medium size envelope. Shipping should be about $2 max.

    I ordered some of these but I will not expect too much. In the past I never had much success with EB strings. It has been awhile since I have tried EB's so I am hoping they have improved over the years. I have always found short life span and easy breakage.
    But for this price...no brainer

    Thanks for the heads up! I was just changing strings yesterday and realized I needed some more.

    I think guitar Center still has 3 packs of cobalt power Slinky’s for 19.98 but you have to pick them up in store. I picked up a 3 pack of those. I usually will buy wherever is cheapest that doesn’t charge shipping. Most of the time though I just order from Strings by Mail as they offer a veterans discount and place a large order. Strings are everybody’s lucky if you break even item. My friend had a music store and he doesn’t even make a dollar on a pack of strings in most cases. GC also has 3 packs of the regular EB strings, but the deal isn’t as spectacular as the cobalt.
