Where's the best (cheapest) place to buy jelly jars?

If you don't care if they have the embossing on them, I'd get them locally at the grocery store or Wally's (here the grocery store is cheaper.) If you want plain, you'll probably need to order them. JBN carries the plain with several lid choices, they would be shipped from TX and you can check shipping before you commit to buy.

"Isnt your shipping really HIGH??"

If I go by their shipping rate calculations indicated on their website (based on my zip code)...YES! But I call or e-mail them first to get an exact shipping quote and it's usually a bit less. They told me that what the website indicates is only an estimate.

But I like the idea of Big Lots!!! Not sure if the one in my area will carry them. Seems like the Midwest and Eastern stores carry more 'canning' products than the West.

North Carolina to Florida isn't that far and the shipping charges from Candle Science are very reasonable. They carry the smooth sided jars. (Don't forget the lids, too, if you need them.) If you go to the site and fill your cart and calculate shipping - you'll see EXACTLY what the charge will be.

Candle science has the 8 oz. jelly jars for 3.99 per case (lids are extra) and the shipping is about the same as it is from Filmore Containers. Filmore's 8 oz. jelly jars for 10 cases (120 jars) is 4.20 per case (lids are exrtra). The shipping is 42.54 for Candle Science and 42.30 for Filmore's....just a personal preference I guess.

I'm in the West and I can pick them up at any Albertson's, Ralph's or Von's. They also carry them at Wally's. I've never looked at Big Lots for them. So far, I've found Albertson's to be the cheapest.

Thanks everyone for the help. Right now it looks like fillmore might be the cheapest when I put everything in the cart. I really don't want to buy them from walmart or another grocery store. Id prefer smooth sided jars, not to mention when I DID buy those ones none of my local stores ever kept them in stock and they were a pain when I tried to get a special order.
