i agree with lavendeath. nowhere i've found has the same value of bead vs cost as walmart. i get a pack of 500 beads for 1.97, which is ~0.00394 per bead. as opposed to sites like ponybeadstore which sell 500 beads for 2.89, which is ~0.00578 per bead. it may not seem like a big difference, but when you buy in bulk it adds up FAST. factor in costs for shipping and you're looking at some pretty hefty purchases. walmart has free pickup right now because of covid so you don't even have to go in, you can just order them and have someone bring it to your car, or order it alongside groceries.
the only problem i've had is availability. my walmart only sells a neon blend, a rainbow blend, and some different letters as well as black/white/red in their own packs, but they are never in stock. lots of people bored at home, so they sell out super fast.

i personally find it's cheaper to get a mixed container of beads from like, walmart and sort them.

I don't know any good places to find bulks but https://ponybeadstore.com/collections/pony-beads sells bags of 500 beads for only about $3 each bag which I think is alright at least, I hope I could help a little!
