Where to buy salt in large quantity?

Do you guys buy salt in large quantity? Stock up for several months. Where is the best source to buy in bulk?

I buy my I/O reef crystals from Dr's foster/smith. I get the 200g box and just fill up the empty salt bucket I have. It used to be 46.99 but I think it's $49 now and free delivery if you spend I think either 49 or 59 dollars.

I pretty much go through a bucket of salt a month. LOL

This seems to be the best quantity/price so far:Amazon.com: Oceanic 81050 Natural Sea Salt Mix, 200-Gallon Bucket: Pet Supplies

Maybe I will buy 4 buckets to last me almost 1 whole year.

Yeah that's a fair price. The reef store here doing a bucket of salt for $40 for the 160 gallon is a good price then. But good to know they make a bigger one online.

There's also coralife salt mix. Same price.

It says it's packaged as a "box". Is that good packaging? I don't want anything to get to the salt.
