Where to get large bottles of coconut oil?

I have really been loving deep conditioning my hair. Today I decided to try a DIY deep conditioning treatment that consisted of 5 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 and a half tablespoons pure honey, and an uncertain amount of V05 Moisture Milks conditioner (I squirted as much conditioner in the container as I figured I would need for my whole head so the amount you put in will vary, and you can just use whichever conditioner you normally do).

My hair felt great afterwards but since the DIY treatment contains quite a bit of oil, I don't know how I'm going to manage to continue to deep condition weekly without breaking the bank when it comes to purchasing enough coconut oil for it. I currently buy a rather small bottle of coconut oil from my local beauty supply for three or four dollars. Do any of you know of a place I can get a large bottle of coconut oil for cheap?

    I always get mine from vitacost.com. I get a huge gallon (I think it's a gallon) for about $21 plus shipping ($4.99 I think). If you get at least $25 worth of vitacost brand items, shipping is free.

    Where do you live by chance? Country and state? Because I know a store that carries coconut oil for only $6. Not in huge bottles though.

    VitaCost, food co-op, or an Indian/Pakistani/spice/Middle Eastern store.

    They have smaller containers. I just mentioned the best deal online and for me personally.

    Less that 15$ at Sams. And 2 16 oz tubs for 16 at Amazon currently (Jarrow brand, which is what I'm using at present). Organic.

    Also, I noted that my local Food Lion had a large jar for 6$ Saturday!! I checked the label out of curiousity and coconut oil was the only ingredient. I have two jars, so I didn't buy any, though. It was hiding on the top shelf near the cooking oils. The Food Lion stuff wasn't organic, though.

    Thanks for everyone's answers so far! I'm in North Carolina, USA. The next time I go to Food Lion I'll ask to see their coconut oil. I checked out VitaCost and saw some good deals on their but I'd prefer to purchase it in a store. It's not often that I purchase things online.
