Can anyone find a long 10-12" screw for under $1.37?

Looking for the best price for long screws with beveled #3 Phillips or 25/30 Torx head. Going through plywood furring strips and 8" of used EPS, plus sheathing into 2x4 studs. When I did my house years ago I had to pay $2 per screw. Sure would love to find something less expensive for a friend's house. I'm not a contractor but help a lot of folks warm up their house.

Thanks for any input,

Thanks Keith!
That should work as we predrilled the furring strips. Nice price.
