Make a Trip or Just Click? Comparing Prices

I've been fascinated lately with the online deals available on "everyday essentials". I just love the convenience of shopping online with the items delivered right to my door. It's one less thing to think about and so much more convenient.

So I decided this week to compare prices at a brick-and-mortar store with what is available online. My first attempt at comparison proves my point.

Scott Extra Soft Double Roll toilet paper is on sale this week at Target. The Sunday ad features a 24-pk. of double roll bath tissue for 9.99. That comes to $.42 per roll.

Compare that to a deal available right now at Amazon.
At Amazon, get Scott Extra Soft Bath Tissue Rolls, 36 Count for as low as $.40 per roll when you combine the available coupon with a Subscribe and Save discount.

Amazon currently has this item priced at $20.59 ($.57 per roll). Clip the available $2.00 off coupon located below the product description . You must be logged in to view the coupon. This brings the price down to $18.59 ($.52 per roll).

Check out using the Subscribe and Save option to save 5-20%. With a 20% discount, the final price is $14.47, or $.40 per roll, shipped to your door.

More and more I am finding that I would rather skip the trip and just click.
