Eh... Not awful if you really need it right away, but not a great deal. Comes to about $0.92 a roll. Target deals at about $0.67 a roll are fairly routine

Yeah, its an OK price if you need TP right now.
otherwise, its not a price I would stock up at.

These come to $21.58/24 Mega rolls = $0.899 each (plus tax)

Staples had the 18 Mega roll packs for $13.99 a few days ago.
$13.99/18 = $0.777 each (plus tax)

For us using Charmin has been the the best option because we clearly use less tp, I'm never sure what is a good price for the Charmin Ultra Strong or Ultra Soft. Is it really better or cheaper to buy the 20 mega rolls @ $18.97 or is 36 double rolls a better price at $16.98.... Walmarts own site says the 36 double rolls equates to 3 cents a roll whereas the mega roll is 4 cents per roll and the 20 mega says it's equal to 80 regular rolls and the 36 double is equal to 72 regular rolls.

although a penny cheaper (eventhough it says the 20 mega rolls equals more regular rolls) i feel like we would go through 20 mega rolls quicker

All this makes my head spin.

You need to look at how many sheets per roll there are and figure from there.
Typically a Charmin "Mega" roll has 308 sheets per roll, while the "Double" roll contains 154 sheets per roll. A Mega roll is essentially twice as big, or equal to (2) Double rolls.

So 20 "mega" rolls is equal to 40 "double" rolls.
So $18.97 divided by 40 double rolls = .47425 per double roll
and $16.98 divided by 36 double rolls = .471667 per double roll

So the 36 pack of double rolls is cheaper than the 20 pack of Mega rolls, comparing them apples to apples (per double roll)

As far as which one you would go through first.... (last longer)

Obviously, 40 Double rolls will outlast 36 Double rolls, so the the 20 Mega rolls would definitely last longer than the smaller 36 pack of double rolls as it would essentially contain an extra 4 double rolls of paper per pack.

Comparing the two...
10 packs of Double rolls would get you the equivalent of 360 Double rolls and would cost you $169.80. (10 @ $16.98)
9 packs of Mega rolls would also get you the equivalent of 360 Double rolls but would cost you $170.73 (9 @ $18.97)

The price difference is so small between those two options, I would just buy whatever size you prefer, whether it be the bigger Mega rolls, or the smaller Double rolls.

I like Mega rolls just so that I don't have to change them as often, so they win out over the smaller rolls for that reason alone.
