Mead Index Cards, Ruled, 3 x 5 Inch, White, 100 Per Pack (63350)

I buy a lot of things on woot. But somebody please tell me: why would I buy 100 - 3 x 5 cards for $5.99–$.99 + $5.00 shipping? I know that I can purchase them locally for far less than $.99! This offer falls far short of a deal, IMHO.
