Buy a pound or two to see how they feel, smell, and taste. If they are crap you've blown a whole 20 to 30 cents!  If there good, buy more and store them properly.

Depends on the variety, the reputation of the vendor, the storage temp, and the storage container.  Myself, I wouldn't bother based on dollar savings.
