Yellow passivated steel posi-drive screws are a fraction of the cost of stainless screws and it seems crazy to spend the extra for stainless. However, we have seen most ordinary passivated steel screws start to corrode after a year or even less. If trying to remove them for maintenance of a part of your structure the chance of the screw shearing off is high. There is also a possibility of the screw corroding to the point of snapping off while in place. Use stainless screws on outside structures to avoid these problems.
