Ball's web site periodically runs sales and discounts clearance stuff.  Right now they have a sale on regular mouth sized pint jars $4.99 for a 12 pack.
They also have Kerr 12oz quilted jars for $4.99 for a 12 pack along with other marked down items.

More importantly they are currently running a promotion of free shipping if you spend $50.00

Thank you for posting that.

I have a question.  Are Kerr jars better than Ball?

I haven't been able to tell the difference between them other than the label.

Thanks Kate! Just placed an order.
(I see no difference between the two either.)

Edit: I do wish they accepted PayPal. Hate putting CC info on a site.

Kerr and Ball jars are made by the same company.

Now they have a mix and match 3 cases of select jars for $25 (U.S.) and free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Sale ends July 25.

I just ordered 6 cases (12 in case) of quart jars for a flat $50. It would have cost $77.94 at Fresh Preserving's regular price and it would have cost $95.94 at Walmart.

Thank you again Kate.
