Cottonnelle Deal at Harris Teeter- Make Money for Future Trips!

Yesterday in our house, we were on our last roll of toilet paper. Normally I keep it stocked but I was out of town during the last two Harris Teeter Saturday specials where they had the toilet paper that I like on sale. So, I was happy to see the Cottonelle deal going on last week and this week. 

 Right now, there is a national Catalina special going on where if you buy 2 packs of Cottonelle toilet paper (12 pack or larger) you get a $2 Catalina coupon back that you can spend on your next purchase. If you buy 3 or more packs you will receive a $6 coupon.  

I received notice of this offer as a coupon when I checked out 
at the Register a few weeks ago.

Cottonelle 12 packs (they claim these are the big rolls that are equal to 24 rolls) are currently on sale at Harris Teeter for $8.99. So, I went for it and bought 3 packs. 

As a bonus, each pack had a $1.00 off coupon attached that doubled to $2.00 off, making the packs $6.99 instead of $8.99. There were also coupons recently in the August 12th Sunday paper for Cottonnelle for $.50 off, which aren't quite as good as the $1.00 coupons that were attached to the toilet paper.  

The grand total before tax was $20.97 and after paying I got back a $6.00 Catalina. Actually, it only printed out a $3 Catalina which puzzled me. Fortunately, I had a copy of the deal with me (it had printed out during a previous trip) and once I showed it to them and the manager gave me a $3 credit. So, it pays to have proof of these Catalina deals. 

 In the end, counting the $6 back that I made, I got (3 packs) 36 rolls for $14.97. This comes out to $.42 per roll. Compare that to the Sam's Club price of $.66 per roll AND the Sam's Club rolls are smaller, having only 164 sheets versus the 176 sheet rolls that I got today.

Even if there was no Catalina offer of $6 back, I still would have paid $.58 per roll which is still less than Sam's Club. I will admit that I've actually paid less than this for Cottonelle toilet paper before. I've gotten the 12 packs for as little as $4.99 and once I got it for $2.99 (special EVIC price and a $3 coupon). However, seeing that we were basically out of toilet paper and this deal was still better than the warehouse club price, I decided to go for it!

To see a list of more Catalina deals (deals where you buy a certain amount of something and earn money to spend on your next trip), click here. Southern Savers keeps a list of them. It's not always perfectly accurate, and it doesn't contain ALL the Catalina deals, but it's the best list I've been able to find.


  1. That list you linked shows if you buy 3 or more, you get $3 off so where does the $6 come into play? Is there a specific place that shows that deal other than the southern savers list?

  2. Hey beachgrl,

    The deal details printed out for me at the register as a Catalina coupon, which I took into the store with me. I will post a pic of it above in about 5 minutes!

  3. ahhh, ok...because I bought three last night and only got one coupon
