Bank Identification Number

Currently our retail business only accepts credit but we are looking at accepting debit as well.  Right now I am trying to gather information as to how many of our current credit transactions could have been debit.  Does anyone know where I can get a list (let me rephrase that.. free list) of Bank Identification Numbers (BIN) for credit cards?

I tried googling it and all I found was a site that let me do 10 free lookups but I need a lot more than that.

It's for your business; why not subscribe to that site?

BIN's are only 6 digits, just subscribe to the service, query all the options (3xxxxx, 4xxxxx, 5xxxxx) , save them and discontinue your subscription.

They change *very* rarely.

What is the site that you found for look-ups?  We've been looking for the same information and Visa won't share it.
