thanks, i was going to add it as per the costco thread but i don't have the sheet sizes for it, once i have the confirmation i will add it!
Cannot add anything regarding sheet size...

But we checked it out when we were at Costco on the weekend, and it did not pass the $ 1 or less per regular roll litmus test... so was not really a great buy at all.

Still the Costco-ites were scampering to buy it up enmasse

I don't know if $1/roll is a good way to calculate or see the value, as the number of sheets per roll varies even from the same manufacturer!

thanks; lol vintage is just some old stock people have dug out from 10+ years ago... so no idea which store it was bought from. I put them there to see how they have reduced the product and increased pricing as they do with everything.

Thanks for the find. I don't buy Bounty but the CDN tire brand but I'm willing to pick up a pack to try out as napkins. The CDN brand doesn't quite cut it in that area and I can never manage to find inexpensive napkins :S

No frills has 6 = 9 rolls of Royale Tiger Towel for $4.97.
It's 5.9" x 11" x 95 sheets x 6 rolls / 144 = 256.8958333 sqft.
That comes to $4.97/256.8958333 = $0.0193 per sqft
However, with a $1 off coupon from entering a contest with royale it comes to $3.97/256/8958333 = $0.0154 per sqft

Make up fake info if you want to get to the coupon screen if you have no interest in the contest.

The coupon expires in June and can be used on toilet paper also (min 12 rolls).
The flyer price expires on April 18th, 2018.

No Frills has the regular 6 rolls of tiger towel at the end of the aisles by the cashiers with the same price ($4.97). You'll have to go halfway up an aisle to find the display for the 6 = 9 rolls. That's a scumbag move by no frills if you're not paying attention.

That's a decent price with the coupon for a better quality paper towel vs the CDN Tire Mega brand which is almost paper like :S
