keep an eye out, every couple of weeks they go on sale for 50 cents. they are usually with a coupon in the ad. and in the off chance (if your local walgreens district is the same as mine) we do in store specials, and sometimes the arizona goes for 29 cents a bottle.

I'm positive if I were to fill it with soda and shake it that it would hold, hopefully someone that has seen them before can comment on this, I really don't know much about the subject. I'm extremely confident they will hold, I'll be sure to post either way. I appreciate the tip beerman!
Usually if the beverage is not carbonated to begin with, then the bottle probably isn't rated to hold pressure. I know there is a certain thickness of material to be rated to hold CO2. I have seen the Arizona tea bottles and I personally would never use them for any kind of long-term storage.

All containers reach a shelf life and are not good after that. Even glass becomes stressed after use during storage and filling.

This all being said, I don't bottle beer much anyway. There may be people here that have used the Arizona Tea bottles with success. They do seem awfully inadequate. I mean the top is not really sealed and that is where I would expect to see failure especially if the beer has a lot of carbonation. If I bottled beer, I would get the best thing I could come across.

Thanks, but I don't bottle. When I do, I use glass... very rare

Exploding plastic bottles are messy. Exploding glass bottles are dangerous...

Just an update for anyone following this... The bottles work great, the pressure will push the bottom out a bit like the previous guy was saying. Bottles still stand up fine too, even with bulge on bottom since it is still flat on the very bottom.
