Yes please!Jul 14, 2011
These pens have been a personal favorite for me for the last few years. I discovered them during my freshman year of college, and I was so excited when I found them at Walmart in a 36 pen box. When I was cruising Amazon last week and discovered that the greatness that is this pen could be mine for so cheap, I practically threw a parade.
If I could high-five these pens, I would. I bought two boxes, so that means I have 120 pens all to myself. Being an education major, I fully intend that most of these pens will go missing in the most ridiculous of places. Will I lose one on the bus? Or will I leave it with the cashier at Target? The joy of the cheapness of these pens is that the future is now mine to find out!
Now, for serious: this is painfully cheap for these pens. They're definitely my favorite pens, and one box will probably get me through my senior year into student teaching and probably when I have my own classroom and need pens for some writing project. I have paid more for these pens, and I do so gladly. They write cleanly, and they don't give out on you until the ink does. Unless I personally damage the pen (which is hard, because the plastic is great quality), it works well always. The ink takes a while to run out (I believe I have a pen that lasted me for everyday writing all year), and they don't look cheap, if you care about that kind of thing. I'm the pen girl in my classes because of these pens.

The pens work!Jul 13, 2011
These pens changed my life! Not really. But they work!
Here is my review poem:
I got my pens the other day
the ones for which I sent away
I held one in my fingers tight
and on a paper i did write
and ink came out and made some letters
I don't know no pen what writes better

A whole lot of pensMay 29, 2011
So why buy a box of 60 pens, when it takes forever just to use up a single pen?
There are lots of reasons, the biggest being the well known fact that once you set a pen down and look away they grow legs and walk off. It's true! What else could cause them to disappear? I think they're forming a colony somewhere in the house, I just hope they don't make a move to take over.
Okay lets be serious now. At the time of this review this box of 60 pens is only 54 cents higher in cost than buying a 10 pack on Amazon. So for 54 cents you get 50 more pens, that's an obviously fantastic deal.
These are your basic every day pens that are so darn cheap you don't much care when they grow their legs and disappear on you. Everyone has heard of the "You get what you pay for" saying before. Well, while these pens are very inexpensive they truly do work really well. I obviously have not tested all 60 of them, but all the ones I have used so far have made nice, smooth, even lines. The caps go on and off easily with minimal force. For you pen chewers out there you can chew away, and always have another in the box you can lend out without getting those looks (you know what I'm talking about).
Are there better pens out there? Of course, but they cost a heck of a lot more. These pens will serve your check book well (does anyone still use those things? I do, but I'm old school like that), take great notes in school, and scribble a quick note at your desk without fuss. Everyday pens for everyday people.

THESE GET THE JOB I BUY THEM FOR DONE.Dec 03, 2009
By D. Blankenship
Indeed, as another reviewer has stated, these pens have been around for almost ever. There of course is a reason for this...actually several reasons. First they are quite inexpensive. Second, they actually write. Third they are available anywhere. Forth, they do no leak. They last quite a long time. And finally, they are not unpleasant to write with.
I substitute teach which means I can be in a 3rd grade class one day and in an advanced high school class the next...I never know. I carry a very large canvas pouch with me stuffed with stuff. I always carry at least two or three packs of these pens with me as invariably, sure as the sun rises, there will be at least one or two kids who forgot their pen or pencil (I always keep several packages of pencils too...but that is for another review). I have also noted that some classes and some students will actually try to take advantage of a substitute teacher and their third favorite request the instant the bell rings is "can I go to my locker...I forgot my pen." Ha...I have the little twerps! And I don't even have to be mean about it like I do with the endless bathroom and drink requests.
Anyway, these pens work great. They do not leak all over the place and smudge. If the student forgets to return the pen...which often happens, I am not out a lot of money and they are less likely to steal them as they do not really look all that cool nor do they have a lot of whistles and bells on them.
As an additional advantage, I do not mind writing short notes with them myself, and I am one of those people who are constantly misplacing pens all over the house and at my desk. I have found that even I have trouble loosing these things if I buy them a dozen at a time. Anyway, they write smoothly and get the job done.
Like another reviewer here, I am not all that happy about these not being manufactured in this country anymore and think it is a shame...but what are you going to do? I guess it is worth it if we can make the fat cats fatter. I will note that when the company changed the manufacturing location, to save money I presume, I certainly did not see the price of these things, cheap though they may be, going down any, for us, the consumer.
Be that as it may, I certainly can recommend these things. They do what they were meant to do.

Love Bic Pens and This Price Can't Be Beat!Mar 12, 2011

Bic pens are quality and this is a great price for them. You can count on each pen to work until the ink runs out.
