Buying Tile Online


Does anybody know a place to purchase cheap ceramic/porcelain tile online? I need approx 650'

It is for my basement, was hoping to get some for under $0.75 per sq foot

Why donít you go to your local tile store and see if they have surplus tiles left over?

Tile is not something that is wise to buy without seeing it----The shipping (and likely shipping damage) would be a deal killer for me---

What about dye lots? If the order is a mixed lot ,who pays the shipping back and forth?
Would you buy something this permanent without seeing a sample?

This would not appeal to me---perhaps you live in an area that is remote and there are no local stores to buy from---if this is the case,good luck to you--ask about returns--dye lots--breakage---depth of stock (in case you need more,due to breakage in shipping)
