Where to buy cheap saddles?

Hi I need a large quantity (20-30) of inexpensive saddles for my bike class and was wondering if anyone has come across a good source or special deal lately?
Under $10 each would be ideal.

Shouldn't be a problem at all.

Every bike shop that I've ever worked at has a box of original equipment saddles that riders have upgraded from. They generally sell individually for around $10.00. If you were wanting to buy 20 or 30, I'd cut you a discount off of that.

Canadian Tire (here in Canada) sells some saddles for about $5. I picked up one a few years back. Walmart might have some too ... or Toys R Us ... or Target ... or Sears ...

Sounds like you've already tried a shop for take-offs, but it might be worth looking somewhere else. Our local REI has at least 20 in a big cardboard box for five bucks each, and I happened to run into a friend who runs another local shop at lunch today. He says he always has a dozen or more around and would give them away to a good cause--he'll never sell them and he's tired of tripping over them.
