Online shopping for poker chips

Postby Sticky Spice » Sun Aug 21, 2005 5:42 am

I want to buy a set of poker chips in a case - probably 500 ct - for less than $60 incl shipping.

Ebay and Overstock seem to have the best deals. Shipping is a big deal because of the weight of it, but right now Overstock has $1 shipping.

Problem with Ebay is that almost everything is the same and the same distributors over and over. I was hoping for something a little more unique.

Any other ideas for bargain shopping?

I got some great deals on chips from EBAY. Just calculate the shipping into your max bid and there you go. I just use a sniper program that bids for me with 30 seconds left. I was able to get a 1,000 count set with case for around $50. Maybe a little less. Just keep looking. What weight chips do you want??

Yeah, you really can get some great deals these days. I remember when a 500 chip count of 11.5 chips were over 100 bucks. :-°

I got a 500 ct set from eBay for about $70 last year. eBay probably is your best bet for find some cheap sets.

you can always collect them for free.

it is poker after all .

I got one set here for free. I had a King hearts draw and bet my Raybans for his chipset.
Ace hearts/Queen (off) on the board.
He had the Q high and the same flush and called me. :-)

Caught the flush on the river.
I'll sell them to you for 19.99. (45.00 s&h) :-)

Do you play poker? Are you at least a decent player? Are you over 18?

PM me if yes, and I'll show you how to get your set for free, along with lots of other goodies of your choice. B-)
