(I wrote this on my blog, hope it answers any questions) How does this compare to other products?
I usually like to compare household supplies with Costco. Costco sells Kirkland paper towels for $18.19 for 12 rolls. Of course this means nothing until you calculate the cost per inch. Here are the details for Kirkland Paper Towels.
2-Ply Paper Towel Rolls White Towel Dimensions: 11" x 14" sheets 80 sheets per roll 12 individually wrapped rolls
Since both width measurements are 11", we must compare the length in inches.
Cost per inch of Staples Paper Towels deal = 7.3" X 102 sheets X 24 rolls = 17,870.4 inches/$20.50 After Coupon
$20.50/17870.4 inches = 0.00115 cents per inch
Cost per inch of Kirkland Paper Towels = 14' X 80 X 12 = 13,440 inches
$18.19/13,440 inches = 0.00135 cents per inch
Why is this a good/bad deal?
The Staples deal beats Costco paper towels! Also you get two boxes of Kleenex tissues for free and save the convenience of not leaving your house! The only con of this deal is you prefer premium Costco paper towels that are 2 Ply instead of 1 Ply. I don't really care, I actually like that the Staples paper towels are half sheets (7" vs Costco 14").

Successfully ordered just now. The deal is either back or not expired yet!
I found a coupon from "the perfect gift" flyer that they mailed out with a 20 off 50 for cleaning and breakroom orders that expires 1-15-13. the code is 54557. I tried to order online and it gave me a expired error. I called and they explained that the printers used the same code as a previous flyer that was expired but they would just enter another 20 off code for me on the phone order. Worked out great. Thanks OP. I used on the tissues and garbage bags. Paper towels are out of stock again.
