I get mine off Amazon. The prices are reasonable and if you do the subscribe & save, you get an additional 15% off plus free shipping. It ends up being about $19.50 for a pack of 24 Clif Bars. You can cancel your subscription easily at any time (even right after signing up).

A lot of grocery stores around here are carrying them, Kroger etc... Occasionally GNC will have them cheap.

REI usually stocks a lot of different flavors. Then to Amazon once you know which flavors you like.

Local supermarket (Stop&Shop) has them for $1.00 a pop. Not the cheapest, but still doable.

Yeah, Costco is famous for discontinuing great items, and each store is different. I got a box at my Costco yesterday. I'd also check Amazon out, they have a way you can get them delivered automatically every month or so, and they give a pretty good discount too.

I get mine at Safeway.

I think you can check the Clif (1 f) website to find a retailer.

Costco always seems to carry a case with the same three flavors. I pick mine up at rei, my bike shop, walmart, and target. I may try amazon soon.

Fred Meyer has them on sale for $1.00, with lots of flavors.

I had a friend who bought a closeout of them on Ebay, and got them for $40 each. He had to buy 16 boxes, however...

Amazon has a deal now where if you spend $39+ on clif bars or other nutrition bars you get $10 off with code OCTBAR08. Deal is good till end of October and means you can get 48 clif bars for $36
