My pack of 100 I got from B&M bargains for £9.99 is about to run out. They are currently selling the same pack for £14.99. Is this still a good deal?

I've tried The Range and Amazon and it seems a lot cheaper still than either of them.
 
I've been buying 30 pads for 3.99 at B&Ms on offer, it might be cheaper that way at the moment , home and bargains do 40 pads for 4.99 , although had trouble getting them at the moment xx
 
I find that Home Bargains are consistently the cheapest at £4.99 for 40, though as Shirley says, they don't always have them. I just stock up with 3 or 4 boxes when they do have stock x

I always try to do that but never have the money lol x so I've been picking up B&Ms ones while they been on offer one packet each week. Got a bit of a stock never lasts tho xx
 
I use quite a lot. I have 2 6x2 c&c runs which take 6 & 3/4 puppy pads each change and are changed every 4 days so one pack of 40 is just about doing 6 changes. Contaray to popular believe, you can cut them as long as you put the cut edges underneath the next whole pad x

Yes I cut mine. Our 2x5 set up plus loft takes 5 1/2 pads per change I think. Only 3 are uncut.
Thanks all for the info - looks like I got a real bargain when I bought the 100 for £9.99.

Has anyone bought them online froma site designed for dog owners?
 
Have you tried using something else underneath instead, like a liner or even aubiose and the like can be used under fleece. Disposable puppy pads are a nightmare environmentally

I use a liner on top (zorb sandwiched between fleece), then towels and then puppy pads.

I've used washable nappies from birth to potty training with 3 children due to not wanting to put so many nappies into landfill but, to be honest, I hadn't really thought about puppy pads in the same way so thanks for making me stop and think.

What I really want is a disposable layer to brush the liner and towels onto that I can then bundle up and throw away. I want this to keep cleaning time down as much as possible because we have two other set ups where we use Fitch and I'm at the limit of the amount of time I can spend cage cleaning.

At this stage in my life, I'd rather compromise a little on how environmentally friendly I am in order to have that time kept to a minimum whilst still ensuring I am not skimping on making sure our pets are all kept in properly clean environments. But maybe I will try once without puppy pads and see what the difference is.
 
I buy mine from Poundstretcher for £3.99 for 30 pads and they are large enough to chop up and use for my litter trays. They are quite thick too.

I use my fleece cage liners I bought from Ziggys piggies and find I don't need any puppy pads under them as they are so absorbant - so only having to use these in the trays. :) But I only have two boys and clean the cage out every 2/3 day to ensure no smells start up. :lol!:

I'm about to start using ziggy's piggies extra absorbent liners (she is making them with a double absorbent layer for me because I really want to and additional layers) so I'm going I'll have as good results too :) I clean heavy use areas twice per week and the shaving run spot clean only

I have only tried her liners, though I know others make them, but am a total convert, and they wash and dry well too - hopefully you will be able to reduce the puppy pads big time :)
 
I got two packs of 100 from B & M today for £12.99 each. On the pack they say they are £14.99 but the tag on the shelf says £12.99. Bargain! They also had packs of 2 fleece blankets for £3.99 in the bedding / duvet aisle. They feel similar quality to Ikea fleeces so I am going to give them a try.
