I dropped by my local Sams Club (So. CA) to see what they had for bulk popcorn supplies. They were out of popcorn but my other local Sams Club had some in stock. They carry:
Act II Yellow Popcorn, 50# bag for $16.58 ($41.55 on Amazon!)
Act II Popcorn Oil, 1 gallon (Soy based) for $ 9.86 ($24.16 on Amazon!)
Act II Popcorn Salt, 3 lb for $ 3.34 ($14.95 on Amazon!)
Duro Popcorn Bags, 1.5 oz, 500 count box for $5.88 ($18.85 on Amazon!)

Sams Club looks like a pretty good deal compared to Amazon.

When I get my Manley running I'd like to try some white popcorn and I suspect that Peanut Oil or Coconut Oil might taste better than the soy based Act II. I also ordered a package of Gold Metal Flavocol popcorn salt, which seems to be the 'standard'. It would be interesting to do a 'taste test'. (I assume that has been done many times before!)

Coconut Oil and Peanut Oil is available elsewhere on Amazon and from local concession suppliers. The "Snap-Paks" or the 4# jars of popcorn are probably a better solution for most of us, although one site says popcorn is good for 18 months. If you get the Snap-Paks be sure to get the right size for your popper. They are available in 4 oz, 6 oz, and 8 oz Paks and maybe others.

Sams Club pricing ends up at $0.166 for the popcorn plus $0.154 for the oil, for a total of $0.32 per 8 oz batch. The Snap-Pak's are about $0.62 per 8 oz pak, plus about the same for shipping if you can't find the Pak's locally. (8 oz of kernels is said to be about the same as two bags of microwave popcorn and will serve up to six adults)

Sam's is great on the price. I buy my popcorn and bags from Sam's. But I got a tub of coconut oil from a concession supply house. If you decide to buy the large bag of popcorn, you will probably want to purchase a plastic container that you can seal. You want to maintain the moisture content of the popcorn. If you use the popcorn up quickly, like a movie theater, you would be fine. But, if it takes you months to go through a bag, you need to seal it.
