Still a good deal; they're making an offer that's hard to refuse at this price. But these were 40 packs about six months ago, not 36 packs.
As alkaline cells go, the durability of these is somewhat lacking compared to Duracell and Costco's Kirkland brand. Personally, I'd rather spend 15-20 percent more for those brands on sale.
oh yeah, i recall now they were 40. anyway, still a good deal. i've good experience with these.
