I’m very picky about the type of toilet paper I use, and with good reason. A few years ago, I was actually injured by scratchy toilet paper and had to see a doctor about it. So now I buy the fluffiest stuff I can find, even if it’s not always the cheapest. I like to save money, so when I noticed that Amazon has a best-selling brand of inexpensive toilet paper that people rave about in reviews, I decided it was worth a look.

It’s called Presto, and it has more than 13,000 verified customer reviews with an average rating of 4.7 out of five stars, which is a bit surprising for toilet paper. It’s a great deal, too: Regularly priced at just $29 for a 24-pack of “mega rolls,” which equals 120 regular rolls. However, Amazon Prime members can save 20% on Presto toilet paper, along with dozens of other Amazon-brand essentials, during the “Stock Up and Save” event. That brings this 24-pack down to just $23.

All you have to do to unlock the extra savings is spend at least $50 (the maximum bonus discount you’ll receive is $100). There’s also a handy progress bar at the top that shows how close you are to hitting the deal, and you’ll be happy to see your total savings highlighted at checkout. If you’re not a Prime member yet, don’t worry – now’s a great chance to take advantage of the 30-day free trial and reap these rewards.

My toilet paper epiphany was caused by my husband deciding to save some money and bring home a cheap variety made of who knows what. After a few uses, I developed swelling and a burning sensation down there that got so bad I had to see a doctor. I didn’t know at the time that toilet paper could actually hurt you, but… it did. And it wasn’t fun. It turned out that the cheap TP had given me “micro-cuts” down there, which were causing my symptoms. My doctor advised me to stop using rough toilet paper immediately, use a lotion temporarily, and invest in better toilet paper for the future.

I read a few of the thousands of reviews on Amazon and decided to give Presto toilet paper a shot. I’m now as big a proponent as the reviewers.

toilet paperOne five-star reviewer wrote: “I pee about a million times a day and I need gentle toilet paper that lasts a long time and is affordable. I was intrigued to find that Amazon now had its own variety of toilet paper, and I can say that after trying it for two months, I was extremely impressed. I usually buy Angel Soft, Charmin Ultra Soft or Cottonelle… Amazon Presto has it all. One of these rolls lasts me at least two days and the material is super soft and absorbent.”

“My butt has never felt better,” says another satisfied shopper. “Think of the Charmin commercial with bears rubbing TP on their faces. It’s so soft. Thick rolls lead to less use on each visit with John. Used less = lasts longer = money saved.

Two thousand tampons for $9? You’d pay $24 for the same number of Q-tips. Over 4,600 buyers have already given these Amazon Basics tampons a perfect five-star rating, and fans say they’re just as good as other leading brands. “These are just like the national ‘Q’ brand and work just as well, for much less money,” writes one very satisfied buyer. “Crafts for the kids, applying cream to scratches, cleaning up pesky corners, you always need these swabs… Thanks, Amazon!! One more thing off my shopping list!”

When a store brand product garners more than 9,000 five star reviews, we think it must be a great item.

Many shoppers say they prefer Solimo wipes over branded ones. “I prefer these to Lysol. I’ll use Lysol if I’m out of these, but with the convenience and timely delivery that rarely happens,” says one reviewer. “Works just as well as half the price Clorox wipes,” says another shopper.

Also put this fabulous beauty tool in your cart. The nine mini razors are ready to shape your brows and dermaplane your pretty face, and over a thousand five-star buyers say they work great!

One disappointed: “Must-have beauty tool. Every woman or man looking for a quick alternative to plucking out chin hair with tweezers must have this tool. I’ve always had the impression that if you shaved your face it would grow back thicker That’s NOT true. This exfoliates and leaves your face as smooth as a baby’s bottom.

Remember to grab something to snack on for yourself. There’s plenty of groceries to stock up on in this deal for Prime members—from coffees and snack bars to peanuts galore, like this popular (and delicious) trail mix.

One of over 10,000 five star reviewers raved: “Love – real M&Ms, lots of cashews and almonds! I am absolutely in love with this trail mix. The price of this trail mix seems like a bargain considering the contents… I usually fill a one-cup container with track mix and then keep it in my work bag.”

Don’t stuff your dog with fillers and additives. Feed him healthy foods. These freeze-dried treats are made with 100% chicken (or beef or lamb, if you prefer). No more trash. Sourced and freeze dried in the USA

Over 4,800 buyers have given these a perfect five star rating, claiming they are for dogs in training and sensitive stomachs too! “Happy dog,” raved a proud puppy-parent. “Our dog can only eat hypoallergenic foods. The vet suggested freeze-dried pure meat treats…he IS an A++ student when he uses them.” Another wrote, “These treats are as good as other brands that cost twice as much. Plus, a vet-approved treat for my 13-year-old dog in the later stages of chronic kidney disease!”

Don’t throw money in trash bags. Amazon’s best selling 13 gallon bags (120 count) are durable, reliable and only 10 cents a bag with this deal! (If you think that’s low, the 200 pack comes in at 9 cents a bag!) And they have approximately 89,200 five star ratings!

“Solid bags,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “I couldn’t tell any difference between these and their brand name counterpart except they are about $2.30 less for 120 bags and the .mil rating for these is 0.9. Some name brands were just 0.78 .mil. Just an FYI…regardless of what they call the stock, or its super duper strength, the one and only thing that matters is the .mil number. The higher the .mil number, the better the bag.”
