Where to buy cheap paper coffee cups and lids?

Wondering if anyone knows of an online discount retailer where I can buy large counts 100-250+ paper cups with lids similar to the ones you get a Tim Hortons or Starbucks, etc.. 10-14 Oz. is fine.

Does have to be fancy, just economical and obviously leak-proof with a safe lid (I don't have a laywer like Jackie Childs from Seinfel).

  1. Smart and Final carries them. I believe some Costcos have them too.

      Costco and Sam's Club both carry them.

        Better off with a place like Smart and Final than Costco. Costco sells foam coffee cups but only by the case. Case of 6oz cups is 1,200 cups and I'm sure the larger ones would be 1,000 cups/case.
        If there isn't a Smart & Final near you try a cash and carry restaurant supply place, they normally sell them by the case or by the sleeve which is what you're looking for....probably 25-50 cups per sleeve.

      2. Smart & Final or their sister store: Cash & Carry. adam
