    anyone know where i can find them?

    im talking about the kind that i can leave in a store on the counter...instead of leaving a plastic one do they make cardboard type holders that the ppl can throw away once the cards are gone?

    i found these and it wont cost me a lot to get the amount that i want...but it would suck knowing i might not get them back

    At .59 cents a pop, does it really matter if you get them back or not? I do know what you mean though, i hate spending money on something and then have it just thrown away. Maybe you could check on them periodically. And refill or take back as necessary.

    The companies that use those distribute 100's of thousands of cards. They are usually in the retail markets where "pennies per unit" is the rule of thumb.

    Did you guys notice you have to buy 250 or you will be charged $10.00 automatically. That's like throwing away $147.50 JMHO

    I got card holders very similar to those from Office Depot for 0.89 cents each. I would look into that if I were you. No shipping. I think you can also get them at Wal-Mart for a little cheaper. I put them in restaurants. When I go bcal to that restaurant, I check them and add cards if needed. If the cardholder is gone, I ask, and put a new up. No big deal. They are cheap and that is just part of the game with this type of advertising.
