    Default Cheapest places to buy plastic bottles???

    Hi guys I got 3 supers full of capped honey in my 1 hive and plan to extract some soon what's the cheapest place to buy plastic bottles? I don't like the bear bottles so if ppl know sites with only them please don't add a name or link!!

    Some research I've done I'll pay around $1 per bottle with cap seem right or little expensive?

    Looking for 10oz bottles (which I believe is 1lb of honey??)

    Thanks everyone

    Bottles are priced very high IMO. Anyway the 12oz will give a pound of honey NOT the 10 oz.

    Normally I would agree but their prices for bottles has gone nuts.
    BTW - how come some suppliers show 1lb, 12 oz and 16oz bottles? If I buy a 12oz bottle am I getting 12 fluid (water) oz or 12 oz honey weight size?

    Gamber Container. I don't know where Warrior's Mark is but I drive there here in PA and their prices can't be beat if you can pick them up.

    People really want a honey bear btw. I got pound plastic bottles in box of 250 from western bee/dadant and they are the best table honey container going. Unfortunately bears outsell them 2-1 and i have lots of what I like sitting on the shelf.

    Ill second Gamber container, they have good customer service as well as prices.

    I like to add a question,

    Does anyone have a preference on cap seals/liners ? Has anyone had issues with the pressure sensitive (ps-22) seals over heat induction seals ?

    Mannlake for the bottles. I ensure I have an order over $100 so I get free shipping. In my area if priced the same the tourist will take the 12oz bear over a 16oz plain bottle. Know your market and give them what they want, whether you like it or not.

    Weather they want it or not no bear period!!!!! If they want local honey from me they won't be getting a bear.

    And mann lake don't offer free shipping on bottles.

    FYI Pet classic 12oz bottles from Gamber Container 420 per case is $167 with caps.

    So that's not bad at all $0.39 per bottle

    Been attacked by a bear dude? I don't understand the bias... Most people associate honey with Winnie the Pooh. As for no free shipping on the bottles... I ordered 24 1 pound bottles not long ago with some frames and other items and paid no shipping for the 100 and some odd dollar order.

    Just trying to help here.

    The 1 pound bottles I ordered were not bears by the way... Just happened to be on sale at the time so I went with them.

    I've already been on the phone with mann lake and they claim bottles don't qualify for free shipping. U might be able to get free shipping on the 24 pack bottles but not the bulk bottles. And the 24 packs are to expensive in my opinion $0.81 per bottle

    As for the bears I just don't like them. Think it's a retarded idea (my opinion)

    The bottles at mann lake if u buy bulk break down to $0.53 per bottle and if u got to pay the $63 shipping makes them way to expensive $0.68. I am trying to bottle for under $0.50 per not counting labels!!
