Cheap Linux CDs

I'm somewhat new to Linux, and have gone through four distros: Lycoris, Debian, Gentoo, and SuSE. I dropped Debian and Gentoo since bandwidth is a problem for me, but, I want to learn Linux, not use it. SuSE is flexible and all, but its not that flexible in letting me use it my way. I'd like to try a boatload of distros, and some other things along the way. Where can I get cheap Linux CDs, since I don't have the bandwidth to download the ISOs?
