Finding a group buy, even if it means driving an hour or two, is your best bet by far. I get 55# sacks for 2-Row for around $30 and you can't beat that price anywhere...

Definitely see if you can get something in your area. Shipping almost always kills any "deal" you can get on line. Also, check out joining local homebrew clubs - For one, clubs often do "group buys" and you can get sacks super cheap. Also, my LHBS gives a 10% discount to our local club members - many brew stores do this. I recently got a sack of 2 row ($38), sack of german pilsner ($52) and a sack of german munich ($52) for about $140 from the LHBS. No shipping.

Any LHBS but the cheapest way is with a group buy or be a regular at a BP or Brewery,,, ask if next time they make a bulk purchase they let you order a couple sacks.

Many will not want to advertise this because they want to compete against the LHBS but they still might help you out on occasion.
