Default Need advice - Sea Scallops

I am thinking of buying scallops for the family. As I don't eat them and have never bought them I need advice.

Please no debates.

Here is a Sale Add for "Dry, Day Boat, 10 to 20 ct., Never Frozen" scallops.
Is it a good sale price? Is the regular price good?

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

That's in line with what I pay down here, except sometimes Acme will offer them for a sale price of 11.99, but not VERY often....
I usually go five scallops per serving, but now that I'm alone, my new serving portion is eight !

Yes, it's a good price.

The only time I've ever bought dry scallops (no additives), they were on sale for $13.99, so I grabbed 5 or 6 for myself.

They sear beautifully!

Go get 'em, Peep!

Thank you everyone.
I feel a little silly. I was looking at last weeks sale circular . So I missed out on the sale by one day. They repeat sales so I will keep an eye out for another sale on scallops. Hopefully it will be close to a holiday.
