Want to buy cheap cases: Where?

I have some movies that are in the blockbuster cases, and want some normal cases for them. Does anyone know of any place to get them for cheap? I know best buy and places like that have them, but they are way too expensive there. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I got lucky and scored a 14 pack at my local Target on markdown for $3.49. I know they carry them though, maybe regular price 10 bucks I'd guess.

Try stores that sell used CDs and DVDs. A lot of times, they will have a stack of used cases by the front door for FREE.

Ask your local Blockbuster for cases. Mine used to give me some that they were just going to throw away. These were the original cases that the dvds were in before they put them into their own Blockbuster cases.

I do as well. I have standard 14 mm singles and doubles, the thicker doubles, triples, 4 disc, 5 disc, 6 disc, and 7 disc cases. They are all just sitting in a box and I don't know what to do with them.

I could use some of those multi-case ones. Heck, even having back up thick-width double-sized are good too. One of my Star Trek movie cases got screwed up and it took me forever to find a new one at that size.

A few months back, I was at Amoeba in Hollywood and they had 5 shopping bags filled with standard width Amarays & Alpha cases just sitting near the trash. A bunch of us split them up and took them home.

Wag, how bad you want to get rid of those? Lemme know. I especially need a 5-disc width case.

Any place sell white 2 disc tray hinge cases or these universal game cases? That you don't have to buy in bulk.

Here what the Universal game cases look like.
