If you are not expecting much, you will likely find them acceptable Wink

I spent some time yesterday in JCPenney checking out the BOGO a penny deals (they are found on stuff in every dept., even cookware open stock & small appliances, lol!)

Anyway, I spent most of the time looking at pillows and towels. With the BOGO a penny, plus the $10 off $25, you can step up in quality for really not much more in price.

That towel is the lowest quality in the store, yes. Price implies that as a given. Is it terrible? No. Is it better than The Big One? I can't answer that because I haven't bought or used the Big One towels since they changed mills for production a few years ago. The Big One towels I have were purchased years ago when they were actually really good towels. I did purchase the JCPenney Expressions towels on a deal a few months ago and returned them right at time of store pick up.

The JCPenney Home Solid Bath Towels [jcpenney.com] have a bit better feel to them. They also have the Good Housekeeping Seal, which does say something for the quality, as well as provide the 2 year money back guarantee.

The above towel (buy 4) when purchased in store, with a <$3 clearance item purchase (hundreds to choose from in various depts.) = $27 - $10 = $17.
Prorated cost of each towel = about $3.85.
**Edit: You can buy 4 towels and 1 washcloth instead for $18 **

I personally feel that spending even a little bit more for really NICE towels that will be used and preferred to be used daily, that will last for years and not change much, is a better value proposition. I would buy #1 or #2 below.

My bath towel picks from JCPenney:

#1 - Liz Claiborne Microcotton Bath Towel [jcpenney.com]
$25 reg., so $15 for 2 ($7.50 ea) after promos

#2 - Royal Velvet Egyptian Cotton Solid Bath Towels [jcpenney.com]
Buy 2 of those (reg. $18, BOGO) plus
Buy 2 of the Home Expressions Washcloths (Reg. $6, BOGO)
Prorated cost per towel after promos = $5.40
**Edit: You can buy just 3 towels instead **

That Royal Velvet Egyptian Cotton Bath Towel was awarded the first Good Housekeeping Green Seal for Textiles, which may mean something to some folks and be worth spending a couple more bucks for a GREAT towel which is manufactured in a fairly responsible manner.

#3 - Royal Velvet Signature Soft Solid Bath Towels [jcpenney.com]
Same price/deal as the Royal Velvet Egyptian Cotton Bath Towel above
**This towel is incredibly plush/soft. Maybe too soft.
It holds the Good Housekeeping Seal also (regular, not the Green).

Edit:

ALWAYS wash new towels first prior to use.
To get the best performance
First wash should be with 1/2 cup white vinegar in the softener holder for the rinse.
Only use 1/2 normal amount of detergent*.
* No softeners or fragrance agents - plain detergent

This helps to clear the fibers of softener coating applied during manufacturing process which can hinder a towels absorbancy. It also can help to set the dyes and to prevent fading, as well as limit shrinkage and linting somewhat.

Thanks for sharing, DB.

In terms of quality, how are these compared to Kohl's the Big One bath towels? I know they're both inexpensive bath towels, so I'm not expecting much. I'm interested in some extra towels, so these will do.

Thanks,
Tofu Vic

Hello, iluvthebeach,

Thank you for the information, recommendations, and analyses! The JCPenney Home Solid Bath Towels you mentioned seems like an excellent value. If I find time to go to JCPenney and at least another store near it, I may buy those.

The bath towels I personally use are somewhat pricey. At this time, I'm only interested in inexpensive bath towels because they'll be used to dry my dog after I bathe her. I don't think she cares whether it's pima cotton touching her or whatever material these cheaper towels are made of.

FYI, SAVE99 is $10 off $25, so if you only need 5, you can get 5 for $15 ($3 each), still with free ship to store.

Welcome Smilie Hope it helps with others' purchasing considerations.
I have some pricey towels too, but my favorites are all 100% cotton microcotton. And that's over the 2 Turkish Cotton ones I have.
I understand the need for cheap in regard to pet bathing, but absorbancy and fiber structure that will last the longest between purchases is still a consideration.
When you go check them out, just feel both the Expressions and the signature Home towel, and I think you'll agree that the latter should be worth another couple quarters Wink

I obviously didn't pay close enough attention to OP price

Those dirty dogs tried to charge me $3.95 to ship them to the store, so I canceled the order. JCPenney is out of it's crazy little mind if it thinks I'm going to pay for shipping and drive to the store to pick an order up. They must have idiots running that outfit.

$8.95 to ship to home. No ordering it for me.

Either send it to the store or my home, they are still $8.95 to ship.

Does anyone know if the BOGO(penny) is available in-store? I tried to find more info and could not. Trying to avoid the $3.95 "ship-to-store-even-though-its-already-in-stock-there" fee.
