The Batteries and butters site seels a dozen for $12 before shipping. That's a better price than Albertson's.

Linkage?

It was this one that Jordan posted: http://www.batteriesandbutter.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?
Like he said, just put "cards" in the search bar.

Looks like it's 12.00 per dozen if you order 12 dozen. If you're ordering 1-3 dozen then it's 13.20. Shipping to my zip is an additional 12.60 for a grand total of 25.80 per dozen. Not a bad deal at less than three bucks a pack with shipping, but a couple cents more than what I'm paying for them. Smile
That's a neat site. I saved it so I can order some other decks off of it.

*Edit* Just checked shipping with an SD zip code and it's the same as for mine.
So, with shipping, I think that comes to about $2.15 a pack. Not bad.

Steven: If you have Longs' Drug Stores in your area you may be in luck - I just picked up 4 decks in a Honolulu Longs for something like $2.80 per. Good luck. -Alibaba

David-- two different Albertson's and not ONE single deck of Aviators.
I even read the shelf labels and they apparently don't carry them in the San Diego area.

and I was SO excited.... Smile

Usually I like to buy cards at a brick and mortar to make sure they're not warped.
But since I can't find any around, guess I'll have to modernize.

Thanks to all for the links!

You're in luck- This year Potter & Potter's gambling auction has a card press in the catalog if the cards arrive warped Smile

I prefer my own method. I faro half the deck face up into the other half. Then I put them in the box. Then I put them in a Ziploc bag and seal it. Then I microwave them for 30 seconds (or longer depending on the wattage). When they cool down, I put them in the fridge produce drawer. Then I wait for three days. THEN I THROW THEM IN THE FREAKIN' GARBAGE!!!

P.S. I'm going to put "I throw things up." in my signature so people will think we're a comedy team.

That microwave method gets real interesting when you use metallic cards.

Just on the exact opposite note from the OP:
I bought a deck of Streamlines for .96 cents today. I overpayed. This deck is very much not a high quality deck. I will use it to practice crimping.

My Kroger alternates the cards they carry. Sometimes they have Bikes, sometimes Hoyle, and sometimes Aviators. Don't know how they make their decisions, but they definitely alternate the cards they stock. Perhaps Albertsons in CA is the same. Keep checking.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Here's why I hesitate to buy cards online:

I use Streamlines every time I work, that is often, and I have yet to see a problem with the card. They are not the best, but far from the worst. The price is amazing, IMO but then again I think pay 5 dollars for a deck of cards that will last less then a night is crazy. Plus, I often get a few laugh lines from using Streamlines over bikes.
