WalMart's price per sheet comes to 0.01016 cents, while Staple's comes to 0.0098 per sheet, that is rounding some of the last digits on both. That is how I came up with 16 cents cheaper for the Staples' pack, and that is only if WalMart would have a similar size pack of rolls, but they don't. So, if you were to by the WalMart pack, you will pay around 32 cents more and you will have to pick it up at the store too.

No the deal works out to actually be $.01 cents per sheet or $.66 a roll!! The mega roll is $.02 a sheet and $1.33 a roll. Definitely buying this.

I got in on this deal last time. I didn't calculate the the savings but when I got the rolls, I was disappointed. I didn't feel like I got a good deal. These are the cheapest paper towels ever. They feel rough and cheap. The rolls are small too. I guess roughly 1/2 the size I'm used to.

these are just 1-Ply. Very thin, sort of like tissue paper, that is why they are so cheap.

Thnx OP... these are the ones I usually buy anyways... in 4 2..
Bought 13, used $20 off $50 cleaning and break room coupon that was in my rewards wallet which brought the total price down to $33.94 for an average cost of $2.61 per package. Not too shabby! I will be donating some to my children's pre-school and elementary school and the rest I'm keeping for my messy children! Green for OP

Shouldn't the real cost-analysis question be, "How much money is Staples going to lose on shipping a box of paper towels for free?"

Thank you Captain Hyperbole. Exactly. I've bought these before and while they aren't the highest quality, they are awesome for everyday use and are nothing like tissue paper. They are perfect for project cleanups, spills etc. They aren't the kind that you can rinse or squeeze out and reuse, but they also don't cost as much as those brands. Ask yourself how often you actually reuse paper towels to see if the "upscale" brands are really worth the cost. In my house, reuse is practically zero no matter which brand we buy.

Good quality but small rolls.

If you calculate by square footage..
its 221.28sq ft for Staples(couldnt read the package so calculated using sheet size*sheets)
or REALLY REALLY close to the same price. Not if you do it like I did and buy 13 rolls and use the $20 off $50 coupon -though I realize not everyone will have the space or funds to do it that way.

Not if you soak them with the garden hose first
Actually, I bought heavy on one of Staples paper towel deals LAST year and am only now in need of restocking. Fortunately, I have a high enough garage ceiling that I was able to stack them to the roof on top of our garage refrigerator.

I see where it asks for a rewards number but you can't enter what you don't have. Try it without it and surely it'll let you sign up. I'm pretty certain that when I signed up originally that I didn't already have a rewards number. Hope this helps!

Get this one
Bounty® Basic Large Paper Towel Rolls, 12 Rolls/Case Item: 167534 Model: PGC 84684
$13 per (12 packs x 97 sheets) 2 ($13) = 24 packs x 97 sheets + $5 gift card Plus tax it should be a tiny amount cheaper than the one above.
the big difference between the Bounty and Scott towels deal is that the Scott towels are select-a-size which means that for the average small mess, you are only using the size you need and not the standard large size. In my experience, this makes the towels last quite a bit longer. I also like the courser scott towels because they don't rip quite as easily as the Bounty towels, but that's just personal preference.
I too am going to laugh when I see my wife's face when all the towels are delivered! That's worth the $30 bucks I spent in and of itself!
