Thank you for sharing, qwikwit.

Introduction notes:


I am factoring in the gift card into the order's final price. The pre-gift card price is $16.98 and the post-gift cad price is $11.98.
There are multiple options in this deal, with the best one being the Viva White Paper Towels 8 Giant Rolls - the first option listed by qwikwit - because it has the highest square footage. As such, I am only calculating that specific option.
My personal "purchase point" for paper towels is $0.0152 per square foot, and the Viva White Paper Towels 8 Giant Rolls option comes out to be slightly lower at $0.0148 per square foot.

For price tracking information, history, and other details, please feel free to check out this spreadsheet of mine; the highlighted blue row is this particular deal.

Additional notes:

My purchase point is based on frequency and availability of deals; for reference, Walmart.com's regular price on their store brand of Great Value paper towels is $0.017 per square foot, and Costco's regular price on their store brand of Kirkland Signature paper towels is $0.0152 per square foot.
I am not comparing apples to apples, so to speak, and this brand may usually have a higher price than some other brands. Additionally, please note that I recently revamped my tracking of paper towel deals, so my data is very limited. Furthermore, there may be other, more personalized factors to consider, including Costco memberships; shipping fees; the possible high quantity of this or other deals; subscription programs such as Target's Subscribe to Save and Amazon's Subscribe & Save; convenience of stores and locations; and availability of online cashback programs.
I hope this helps,
Tofu Vic

My personal "purchase point" of 50c per equivalent roll may be less scientific than TofuVic's per square foot, but it's easily calculated in my head. In this case, the Viva package says "8 = 12" so my purchase point for 24 equivalent rolls would be $12.00 (24 x 50c). Factoring in the gift card and subscription discount, this deal comes to my purchase point, so I'm in.

Awesome, was able to use an old Target $5 gift card to sweeten the deal. Brought it down to the $12 mark.

I assume this is like amazon where you can cancel the subscription after they ship?

Viva White Paper Towels 8 Giant Rolls (66 sheets)
$19.98 - $3.00 (S&S) = $16.98 - $5.00 ($5.00 GC) = $11.98 / 806.4 sq. ft. = 0.015 cents
Shipping weight 5.15 lbs

VS.

Viva Vantage Paper Towels 8 Giant Rolls (100 sheets)
Viva Choose-A-Size White Paper Towels 8 Giant Rolls (100 sheets)
$19.98 - $3.00 (S&S) = $16.98 - $5.00 ($5.00 GC) = $11.98 / 732.8 sq. ft. = 0.016 cents
Shipping weight 5.50 lbs
* Per Pack: $0.60 is forfeited for the convenience of 11 x 6 sheets and added strength
* If 2 are bought: $1.20 is forfeited for the convenience of 11 x 6 sheets added strength (Assuming by description).

If anyone is interested on the numbers. I tend to not use up all the square area of each sheet, depending on the job. In other words, lots of unused space for 11 x 10 vs. 11 x 6 for most my needs.

Viva are softer to the touch and elastic. In my bachelor days, I ran out of TP and starting using a roll of Viva instead. Twas rather delightful

Page hangs on the "place order" step.

For whatever reason this and the previous time I shopped at target.com it is the worst online shopping experience I've had. almost at every step every button there is a hung-up or a hiccup. Very aggravating. Will never use target online again.

I have no issue with amazon or newegg or any other websites I shop at.
