You will pay much less if you just order a reasonable quantity (~50 or so) of all the commonly used preferred values (E6 or E12) from a place such as Mouser:

In fact, you will be almost certainly fully covered with E6 values + 820; and in almost all cases, can substitute more exotic values freely.

On ebay I bought a 2500 resistor kit (50 values, 50pcs each) for $20 shipped.

I got mine on ebay to sounds like the same thing you got and had no problems with them.
