yes it would appear that i should have just bought two more 4.99 packs (another kind without the 2000 bonus, as the one with bonus points was sold out) to make my before tax amount > 50, and then I would have gotten ~$10 more back in points (assuming the 20X offer was active, which was likely the case), which makes these two additional packs practically free.

i.e., i could have spent $4 extra (5.99*4-4.99*4) for 2 extra packs and avoided the whole return-and-buy-again exercise.

i hope my RFD membership isn't revoked due to this material oversight.

Was this a price error? I bought 2 ... 4.99 on one day sale plus 2 bucks back in points = killer deal. Their toilet paper is amazing value too, cheap price, lots of sheets.

FYI this same product is $5.00 regular price at No Frills (at least my local locations). There are never any points promos, so this was a better deal for sure, but regular price at Shoppers is wildly overpriced for the same product.

how is this one becoming my most up-voted post. i hope i don't go down in RFD history as "that TP guy", how unfortunate.

Maybe it's the "storied" style that makes it relatable.
Most real RFDers have:
- returned/rebought stuff at Shoppers to get missing points;
- felt the wondering glances from other customers on our cart full of things on special;
- heard the impatient sighings behind us in the line for the cash register;
- endured the snooty attitude of a flunky cashier.

I have found over the years that the amount of upvotes a post will get is unpredictable.
Sometimes, a post that you think will be a hit turns out to be a dud and sometimes you get a lot of upvotes unexpectedly.

I predict this post will get very few upvotes. Face With Tears Of Joy
