Best prices on canning jars?

Our local Ace hardware usually has pint jars for $10/case. I found one case on sale at Target a couple weeks ago, I think it was $8 or $9. Grocery store prices seem to tend higher but if anyone sees a bargain, I'd appreciate your sharing it!

  1. Just paid $9.99 for a case of 1/2pint at Shaws. I think the pint were the same price or a couple dollars more. I have seen them on sale. Last year the cheapest I found were are Kmart and the Christmas Tree Shop. And I wonder if the China Fair in Porter Square sells them.

    1. Might want to try the Dollar Store. I've had good lick there.

      1. A few weeks ago, they were in the circular for the Christmas Tree Shop. I don't remember their price but have found most things are less expensive there.

        1. I'd give China Fair a call, and maybe Eastern Bakers Supply.

          1. I bought my 32 12/$12, 64 oz 6/$13 jars at ace I think you can get them other online sites cheaper if you need a bigger quantity. I found Target didn't have the larger sizes I wanted.

            1. Market Basket and most stores even WalMart has them this time of year.
              Good Hardware stores too - such as Ace and Aubochons.

              1. Thanks for the replies! I tried Kmart today but they were sold out - the price tag on the shelf listed $9.99 for a case of pint jars, though.

                Christmas Tree Shops only had quart jars, but their regular price for pints is 89 cents each. So a bit more expensive than Kmart or Ace.

                1. Bumping this because I got a flyer for a sale at Ace Hardware this weekend (Wed Aug 28th thru Mon Sept 2nd). Two cases of jars (12 per case) for $14. The ad doesn't specify the size but it looks like pint jars in the picture.
