I’ve been seeing and have paid between $2-$2.50 per chip...does that sound reasonable? I’m looking for up to 40x more $25s and 300x $100s...how many are you expecting? Also, I have a US address since I’m stationed in Japan on a US military base. It’s an APO box, so no issues, as long as you use flat-rate USPS Priority.
