    ok, this is gonna sound stupid, but when i use to sell on ebay, i would find out when badcocks was getting a furniture shipment, and i would call them and they would save me the bubblewrap instead of throwing it in the dumpster

    I found huge rolls, 62.5' x 12", on Amazon for $6.50 each. Cheapest price anywhere, even when you add shipping.

    You can get a big roll of it at Lowes for about $20. It lasts forever!

    I'd call a Uhaul store or an office supply and see how their prices compare to Wal Mart.

    I get it off of ebay, the large bubble wrap is 62.5 ' long and 24 " wide, for $7.00 plus shipping. The small bubble wrap is 12 " wide and 300 ' long for $15.95. Those prices dont include shipping.

    I would say ebay, though at my walmart the 150' rolls are only like $16? $17? Something like that. So once you'd add shipping fees on top of the ebay prices, you wouldn't be saving much, if any.

    Someone before had said they found some at their Dollar Tree store, you might want to check there? I'm sure it was a small roll, so you'd have to comparison shop on that, but it would be worth looking into.

    Other than that, you can always check stores in your area, or maybe post an want-ad on craigslist? Most people just throw it away, and with the holidays coming I'm sure many people will be getting a lot now. You'd probably get it for free, provided you picked it up. [​IMG]

    I somehow missed the 300 feet part of that, I guess that would be a good deal [​IMG]
