I just submitted my application for the Triple Play Award (thanks to N4ZR 
for my last one) today and it cost me $17.00.  I can only imagine how much 
it would of cost in sending out paper cards.  For 150 confirmations, I'd 
probably have sent out 300 cards, or more.  Figuring only $0.80 per card 
(w/SASE), I'd have been looking at around $240.

I don't think that eQSL counts for any major awards, does it?

LOTW is definately the way to go.  73

Generally, all I want is a confirmation of some type that I  can use for
awards.  I think everyone should upload to both eQSL and  LoTW.  This would
solve most QSLing problems.  Contesters particularly  should QSL everything 
eQSL and LoTW as part of the log submittal  process.
