I can get a dynex 50 pack for $5. that's 10 cents. could probably get a better value on the hundred packs.. but these cds don't work in one of my burners.. so I usually get memorex cds at about twice the price.

I live in the northeastern united states.

I don't pay anything most of the time.. get them free from work... and no, I'm not stealing either, I'm just allowed to use them for whatever, business or for myself..

Lucky sod. I usually buy 25 memorex or imation blank CD's for £3.50 (US$6). Its obviously cheaper to buy a bigger spindle or lesser known brand names.

Around 20-25 US cents per piece for something like Verbatim or Sony and around 0.15 dollars for non-brand names. This is in Romania, Eastern Europe.

You can expect to pay roughly between $0,45 and $0,60 a piece for quality cd-rs here in The Netherlands, without the jewelcases.

I have seen them, with rebates for free from Frye's and Best Buy but you have to check the ads weekly. I would complain but I get them free from work...

Here in Brazil it's R$2 (US$0.75) for a blank CD-R and R$5 (US$2) for a CD-RW. Yes, I know it's expensive =(
