Consumer reviews about Bounty Paper Towels

UNwanted change

It 's not the select size that has everyone up in arms, it's the thickness of the towel. Proctor & Gamble decided to change to a thinner towel to decrease the cost to make the towel. Reminds me of when Coca Cola changed the formula and called it New Coke.
The new Bounty is not a little thinner, it's much thinner. P&G had 3 choices. They could have decreased the count per roll, increased the cost or lowered the quality. Unfortunately, they sacrificed quality. People for years have been used to nice thick super absorbent paper towel. Even if the new towel is as absorbent as the old, which it isn't, the connotation in people's mind is "thicker is more absorbent than thinner." I have no idea what P&G was thinking. If it ain't broke, don't fix it certainty applies here.

UNwanted change

i just bought a 12 "super" roll select-a-size pack from sam's club. i could tell immediately they were thinner, but compared with an old one just to make sure. hold it up to the light and it's clear there is now less fiber. you can see way more light through the new ones. also, now less absorbent and not as strong; they tear easier. there is not as much embossing and the quilting pattern is different. it feels like a store brand now. BUMMER!! they have not only cheapened the product, they have raised the price! BOOOOO, P&G! call their help line 1-800-N-BOUNTY. the operator tried to convince me i was the only one who had noticed this and complained.

UNwanted change

Proctor and Gamble should have not taken away so much of the quality of this product without the customers being aware! I, for one, thought that "our usual" paper towels seemed much thinner; but we probably went through 2-3 packages of rolls before we were sure. For years, we have used ONLY their paper towels for many different jobs. For quite some time, I had been using a small number of sheets of their original product for WRAPPING UP THE FROZEN GEL PACKS I use to lessen the pain and misery of lower back and knee degeneration. The first things I began to notice were that the packs became nearly impossible to wrap; the gel packs began to constantly slide out of those paper towels, and the towels were easily ripping apart and not doing the job, It was hard to believe, but I KNEW THAT THIS HAD TO BE A DIFFERENT PRODUCT! As a senior citizen who never needed more than 3-4 sheets to hold the largest of gel packs, I am extremely DISAPPOINTED and will also have to find another paper towel that will do the job, since NO QUANTITY of these PARTICULAR sheets will work for me! I wish the company would reconsider and change back to their original product, which was excellent for every need that we had... If the company is suffering financially (?), I would be willing to pay a little more for the RIGHT paper towels, which are a medical necessity!!

Bounty

Paper towels are one of my vices. I use them in the kitchen, as I cook a lot. No old nasty cloth towels for me.
So when I was sitting at my computer, I noticed a nice thick paper towel folded up that I use to catch condensation from my diet soda. Next to it was a thin piece of crap paper towel. At first I thought maybe a friend had brought a crummy paper towel with the nice piece of cake they brought me. I decided to Google and see if dear God, my favorite paper towel had been destroyed by greed.
Google was just ads for P&G, so I went to Bing and found this site. After reading the comments, I realized that P&G greedily had destroyed a perfectly wonderful product. I won't have this crap in my house. I am donating all the new rolls to my wife's office, and will get whole Bounty towel replacements for now. I certainly will not tout Bounty anymore, and plan on getting store brand if I want cheap sizeable towels in the future!

2 ply coming apart

I am a regular user of Bounty paper products. Recently I purchased a package of towels in double rolls. Every roll I have opened
as come apart as in the 2 ply is coming apart when you tear them off . This makes them very thin and almost unusable unless you take the time to place one ply on the other...not a good quality towel...

inferior product

My husband and I have been buying Wal-Mart's brand of pick-a-size paper towels and have been happy with the quality. But recently we were in another store and needed towels. Bounty had the pick-a-size and we'd always thought of Bounty as a top quality product. So we got a big pack of them. We will never make that mistake again! I don't know what you've done to your product, but it's terrible! On some rolls the towels come apart. The paper quality is awful, and thin! They don't absorb well at all. On other rolls the paper isn't even lined- up properly and it's terrible to just get some off of the roll and use! We are going back to Wal-Mart brand. Your's is just cheap, terribly made trash!
You may use our names.

Yes, got the big pack at Walmart and those are the select sheets and not any of the rolls will tear apart at the choice spot. Must have missed the inspection line.
The up code on pack is 03700097892 .price was 17.97 . Date 7-3-16

Once again, a great product ruined!

I guess Bounty thought they could sneak it by us: no mention whatsoever of a major change in quality. But, marketing folks, how stupid do you think we are! Immediate realization of loss of quality, so that now Bounty is just like the cheaper, thinner, less absorbent brands that I always avoided because Bounty was softer, thicker, and didn't shred (as it does now!). I feel cheated and disappointed. This may seem like a small thing to be upset about, but it's reflective of major societal changes, where gaming the system, lies, false advertising, and lowering of standards for bigger profits are now the American way of life. Bounty, you've lost a customer.

Bounty, the meaner ripper offer

No where on the pkg does it say 'new and unimproved' to let the consumer decide whether to gamble on a purchase. Not only did Bounty change their product, lying by omission to loyal customers, they threw their integrity away. Was it woth it? We've now seen this happen with toilet paper and tissues as well. Bounty's largest competitor should send them a thank you!

Bounty Rips off the Consumer

January 29, 2017

Bought a huge container of Bounty Select-a-Size paper towels at Walmart last month or so, and it is thinner and smaller than it has ever been. Only a few months ago it was perfect as always. Shame on you people that manufacture this. Why didn't you have the guts to raise the price rather than lower the quality/quantity. I have told at least 45 women about this ripoff. Let us hope "word of mouth" bites you in the budget. I will be looking for a thicker towel, one that justifies the price. I will never buy another product by P&G again. How foolish of you, to think so little of your customer.
