Default Where to get vacuum seal bags at a good price?

So I've been going through vacuum seal bags like crazy. Where are you getting yours? I'm looking to get them at a good price, possibly in bulk.

i have not tried them yet, but some one I spoke to a couple weeks ago swore by 'Weston' bags and you can get those at Amazon.

So far the best I've found is from the webrestaurantstore.com

http://m.webstaurantstore.com/vacmas...VBM946152.html

It will be 11 bucks to ship 3 to Virginia. This seems like a good price. Has anyone seen better?

I buy this same thiing at Sam's for the same exact price and I don't have to pay shipping.

http://www.foodsaver.com/product.aspx?pid=8437

Plus the ones at Sam's come with several extra bonus bags. I prefer the rolls, not the bags. Cheaper and I can make whatever size bags I want that way too.

Quite often Foodsaver will offer coupon savings via email, or a coupon code that will save quite a bit of money. I bought 5 three roll boxes a while back that was a real savings. I don't remember the exact price but it was a bargain, like 60% off maybe? Sometimes the Brethren when they get a code will post it for others, that is how I got mine.

Define bulk. are you using 1,000's? If so it might be cost effective to switch to a chamber vacuum vs a atmospheric (foodsaver) style as chamber vac bags are exponentially cheaper than the ribbed atmosphere type.

I'm just a weekend warrior so a chamber vacuum would be overkill for me. I've been buying the cheaper brand rolls from wally world and it seems like I spend 15 bucks on rolls every few weeks. I think a 50 foot roll is good for me.

Not sure if the quality is the same but webrestaurantstore.com was a bit cheaper on the same size rolls and maybe a little cheaper on the shipping.

Guys, at our VacMaster site, we currently have select bags at 20% off. And since I'm a Brethren, I had them make up a Brethren coupon code for you guys for 15% off site-wide. This one is good through February 28. BBQGU201301 www.aryvacmaster.com

Just don't use it one Wednesdays when there is free shipping. It can't combine with that one but I'm told it WILL combine with our current items on sale.

Oh and Tim, when you respond on this, FYI, I have requested info for a Brethren venture page but no reply yet. That's been about two weeks ago. :-)
