Let’s Talk Toilet Paper Again. (And Free $5 Amazon MP3 Credit)

Do you remember when I cheered for toilet paper?

Right.  That post.

Well, if you clicked over there, did you notice that there are 21 comments on it?

21 comments is a lot around here.  And that post is about toilet paper.


So I’m talking T.P again in this post.  See . . . I got comments, and even dedicated EMAILS on the subject of toilet paper.  I’ve had people thank me for talking them into trying Scott.  People love their Scott 1000.

One of the comments (that’s probably a reflection of what most people’s excuses are for not using Scott TP) expressed someone’s concern about the thinness of Scott.

Concern, or excuse.  (See how I made this part of my excuses series?)

Anyway, here was my response:

“OK. To get pretty personal, yes the paper is thinner. But I use more, and that takes care of the issues you mentioned. Meaning, a thicker wad of this paper STILL is better on the plumbing than a thinner wad of the other kinds. Make sense?

The only problem is that my kids are used to using thicker wads and tend to do that in the homes of relatives who also have plumbing issues but won’t switch toilet paper so the thicker wads of the other stuff end up causing problems. Then said relatives mildly freak out about how much toilet paper my kids use.

And still, even using “more” the rolls last a lot longer than other kinds.”

And I must say that even though the Scott TP we use is thinner, it ISN’T scratchy.  TMI.  I know.

Now do you want to know about the free 5$ Amazon MP3 credit?  Well, joining Scott Shared Values not only gives you access to great printable coupons for various Scott products, it also has lots of other perks.  There are discounts for various things like family activities.

Very cool.

AND right now, if you’re a member of Scott Shared Values, watch the scrolling pictures when you’re signed in and click on the one about Amazon MP3 credit.  I answered a ONE question survey and was immediately emailed a code that allowed me to add 5$ in MP3 credit to my Amazon account.

Most individual songs are .99 on Amazon.  Of course, I immediately downloaded a karaoke song from the musical Wicked.  So you can get five songs totally free.  Or use it toward the cost of an album!

And you don’t have to use it all at once.  Go here to apply it to your account.  (I had a little trouble finding where to add it because it’s different from regular Amazon giftcards.)  The credit expires January 31, 2013 . . . so you have plenty of time to decide which song you will download and choreograph for your kids to perform for the grandparents on Christmas Eve.  I’m sorry.  This offer has now expired.

What?  You don’t do that?


So you totally want to join now, right?   You can sign up right here right now! (Through my referral link!)


I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Scott. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating and am able to earn additional rewards throughout the campaign.

    Sorry, but it did NOT work for me. When I signed up, the website accepted my entries (name, email, etc.) but when I clicked on the “coupon” it didn’t print. Then when I entered the “captcha” words for the Amazon MP3 credit “deal,” that didn’t work either. Maybe you should check to see if these “deals” work for everyone before advertising them in your newsletter.

      Hmmmm. Strange. It worked without a hitch for me. I’ll forward your comment to my contact. Be sure to check your spam folder since the amazon code comes in an email sent to the email address you used for your account.

    Worked great for me! I got an email right away with my code and bought a $5 halloween album to play for the trick-or- treaters. Thanks!!!

    I love Scott! I have a septic and I know other brands claim to be designed for septic, but I don’t care, I love my Scott. Just do a little science project with the kids and you will see that it disolves faster than other brands. I did break down and try to save some money by buying the Kirkland brand at Costco a while back. Now I am stuck with tons of TP that is very soft, but I can just visualize it sitting in the septic not breaking down! We have lived in our house for 6 years and it was built 4 years before that. In those 10 years the septic has never had to be pumped out and I am hoping to keep it that way for as long as possible. I was just thinking about this issue this morning while I was…well anyway…and I decided to have a talk with the kids and remind them that with this extra soft thick stuff you don’t need to use as much. Probably also something I need to mention to hubby…seriously!

    Worked just fine for me the other day, too!

    If you’re trying to print a coupon, make sure you don’t have an ad-blocker program running on that page. That’s usually the problem with that sort of thing.

    Oh, and I can’t do Scott regular, but I am a regular consumer of the Scott Extra Soft. Almost as cheap as the regular Scott, but feels *worlds* better. We run into the same problem with amounts at other people’s houses, though! 😀
