That is a REALLY good deal as these are the 11.5 gram chips. They state that they are clay chips and the item is heavily discounted so I believe they are. The XB2 discoutn also works.

You get what you pay for. Got some freebie Nevada Jacks from a PSO promotion and they are basically casino quality. Good stuff for some home games.

For most people, they're fine. But as with anything, those who know better won't like them. It's all a matter of what you need. If you just want some chips, they'll do fine. If you want NICE chips, they won't.

I'd say for the average joe these are going to seem like nice chips. If they are truelly 11.5 grams a peice then they are a heavy chip.

Let's just say this. Most places sell there 500 count cheapy light plastic poker chips for $15-$20. These 11.5 grams will be much nicer than those.

Mine arrived yesterday. I had totally forgotten about these. I didn't get any e-mails or anything. I hope this isn't how HomeDepot.com normally conducts business?

I got my 3 sets last week. Ordering from their site isn't a great experience if you have any questions or problems.

When I placed the order I got a confirmation email. Logging into their site only give the order number and what you ordered, but no info on whether the order was ever processed or not.

I waited about two months, and then emailed them (since I hadn't received the chips, or an email, or anything). They responded that they'd cancelled my order because they had sold out and hadn't gotten any back in stock -- so after 60 days my order was cancelled. What crappy customer service! They never told me they'd cancelled my order until I asked -- no email, no message on the site, etc.

A month later, out of the blue, the order shows up on my doorstep. After telling me my order had been cancelled, they shipped it anyway. Lucky I'd been too busy to look into buying a set of chips elsewhere.

They need to do some serious work on their order process/info/customer service through their website.

So, did you end up being charged for them?

Last week they had a grand opening celebration for a new meijer store (I guess it's like a super Wal-mart) in Normal, IL and one of the doorbusters was this exact same poker chip set for $14.99.
