After finishing a 25 yd job yesterday using bagged mulch I don't believe I'll ever use bulk mulch again. I know there are pros and cons to both and differing opinions, and much has to do with the cost. For us we were able to get bagged cedar for $2.48/2ft bag which put us right around $35/yd, almost exactly what we pay for bulk. The bags were much easier to unload from the truck, haul, place and spread. No spills, no cleanup, no worry about running short or what to do with the extra since the bags are so easy to store. We laid ~25 yds yesterday in under 9 hrs with 2 guys, and that includes 3 man hours lost to trips to for additional pallets. It was a rush job so I didn't have time to investigate delivery, but I found out after the fact delivery with spider is only $50+$5/pallet. We get a very nice rate for our mulch jobs, so when we start closing in on 2yds installed per man hour we are making some serious $$. Not trying to start a debate over bulk vs. bagged, just sharing our experience.
