    I think you meant " What, if any, ...."

    So I'll admit it, I don't know what a early order program is? Do they stop selling poly half of the year for you?

    Through my experience poly availability and prices all depend on your location and the suppliers in your area.
    Like here in washington. 1" Poly on the west side of the state for 100' and 300' rolls is Much more expensive then the east side of the state, because of the supply and demand.

    Early order means you commit to a certain ammount , usualy 50 or 100 rolls.For that , they give you a discounted price and billing 1/2 may , 1/2 june.

    I See. Thank you.

    I set it up a few year back with my boss to purchase through my cousin at hd fowler so he could give us the ' hook up ' on prices for poly
    I didn't know that term.

    I haven't thought 'per foot' in decades - per roll is more like it.

    But they're sold in 100' and 300'. I find it easier to know per 100'. Which just means moving the decimal point, but you get the idea.

    It's been almost as long since I bought 100-foot rolls of 3/4" or 1" poly - I wish there was something useful to use the stub ends for.

    Since we went to service and repairs only, I buy the 100' rolls. Easier to control in the trucks or van.

    There was a time when the mfrs were overtaping the big rolls, and a partial roll would hold its 'structure' ~ but the same taping made it really difficult to unwind the stuff when pulling it.
