Update on Viva and Cottonelle Deal at Kmart


cottonelle deal1


**Update:  Thanks to Shannon for posting on Facebook and Erin for commenting here!…..Get $3 OYNO wyb 3 packages of Cottonelle Toilet paper!  I wish I would have waited until today to get my tp but I’ll just have to go back!

**It wasn’t just me having fun with the paper towels & toilet paper….check out one of my daughters crashing thru the fort that she and her sister built 😉  They were playing “Wrecking Ball” while crashing thru….this kept them entertained for at least an hour!

I went shopping at Kmart this morning to try out this amazing deal on paper towels, detergent and toilet paper. I found out that Purex is not part of the $3 instant savings…but it still makes for a great deal 🙂  A $4 catalina is printing when you buy 3 Viva (Thanks Sandy & Carleen).  This is a stock-up deal for sure!  I purchased the items above and left plenty for other shoppers – my Kmart had a ton!  I plan on going back for more toilet paper this week but wanted to be sure I got the paper towels while the catalina was printing!

My cashier was very friendly and awesome about letting me do multiple transactions.  My friend Jenn went shopping at a different Kmart and they would not let her use printable coupons – my store accepted the $1.50/2 Purex Laundry Detergent printable Coupons with no problem.

I also found a $2/1 Viva Pop Up Napkins wyb 1 package of Viva Paper Towels peelie coupon on the paper towels which would make the napkins only 99¢ AND $2 off wyb both toilet paper and wipes peelie coupon on the packages of Cottonelle….so be on the lookout if those coupons interest you!


  1. I did this last night @12:15 am. The regular prices came up because I didn’t see on the sale ad that it says sales prices start at 8am. The put in the sale prices since I was there thank goodness.

    On the cottonelle, I used (3) .55 q’s and they doubled and (in a separate trans) for the Purex, (4) .50 q’s that doubled. My store doubles the first 5 q’s.

  2. what did ur transaction look like and coupons used. I wanted to do the papers towels but with scenario provided, it woul be -.03. does Kmart do overage? btw I like ur picture u look like a kid on Christmas morning, hope all goes well for me( not a kmart qer due to poor reviews lol)

    • I’m not sure how it would be -.03¢? Even if you found 3 Viva Store coupons (it looks like you can’t stack these with manufacturer coupons), you would still pay $1.97 for 3 packs of paper towels and get $4 back. Since the $4 is a catalina that is OYNO, it would be fine to have “overage”.

  3. oh I thought u could stack- I know I did with a Scott deal before- ahh well.ill still try it since I’m driving all the way there

    • Maybe you can? Let us know what you find out 🙂 Each store may be different just like how my friend couldn’t use printables but I could.

  4. I couldn’t find the $2 off qs so I couldn’t stack, but I did use the $1/1 anyways and to my surprise I had reward points. I paid .20 for 3 packs of paper towels and got $4 cat back. i also bought some cottonelle t, but the $4 cat wouldn’t scan an they gave me $4 in cash at cs. pretty excited overall, then I went to giant eagle and found these toll house Halloween cookies on sale for $1.79 and they had .55 Peelies on them. thank you for posting this deal about the paper towels :)-

  5. What about kmart doubles coupons ? Did they stop doing that If I recall if you spend 25+ on household items your coupons double up to a dollar 1.00 becomes 2.00. If that’s still the case would make it even sweeter.

  6. Oh my! your daughter looks so much like you. I thought it was you when I first glanced at the pic. You’re both very cute.

  7. So I did the cottonelle deal today…they didn’t have any viva left 🙁 …..used a $1 and two .55 q’s…they all 3 doubled and with the $3 off instantly my total was 4.37…I had a few cent off in rewards pts…but the coolest part was I got a $3 catalina back! Maybe I missed someone else posting this but I didn’t see it anywhere…thought that was sweet and worth mentioning! 🙂

  8. Anyone know how long the $3 cat for the Cottonelle is going? I got some yesterday and this is almost too good to be true. And the nice part is that these deals are actually working. Kmart is notorious for having deals that bomb

    • It will be good for the whole week and then some but the great deal will only be this week with the extra “instant savings”. The cottonelle catalina is also printing at Giant Eagle but the deal is not even close to Kmart’s deal 🙂

  9. Am I the only one who is having trouble getting the Viva coupons to print? The $1 says page not found and the $.55 asked for my email and then doesn’t loading anything. =(

  10. So I want to try this deal. Will the $3 automatically come off when you purchase 3 TP’s? What if you have shop your way rewards and how does that work? If I understand the above, I’ll then get $3 OYNO back? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    • I just did this deal again yesterday and plan on doing it once more before the ad ends 🙂 Even without any coupons, this is still a great deal. Be sure to ONLY buy 3 participating items at a time. You will need to scan your Rewards card (if you don’t have one, simply register at the CS desk and get one for free- I think they no longer give cards and just use emails).

      So basically just scan your card (or give you email) and ring up 3 cottonelle TP
      They will ring up at $3.99 each and then $3 will come off instantly
      *if it doesn’t the cashier will be able to take it off after showing them the ad (my cashier said that her register was having some trouble but for my orders it worked fine)
      You will pay $8.97 (or less with coupons)and a $3 catalina will print.
      So without any coupons, you only pay $5.97 for 3 packs = $1.99 each 🙂 With coupons, you can get them for as little as 99¢ each.

      If you are “rolling” you catalinas, you may have trouble. I wasn’t buying anything except for TP so I had 3 coupons and the register wouldn’t allow me to use a 4th coupon (the catalina)….I’m not sure if it’s because I had more coupons than products or what. One cashier said to hand over the catalina first and that may work. I just kept some of my catalinas and will go back to buy things I would need anyway.

      Hope that helps….sorry it is so jumbled;)

          • So…I picked up 9 packs of the Cottonelle TP for $.14 for 3 packs, with a grand total of $.42 for all 9 packs or 109 rolls!! I had $15 in Shop You’re Way rewards, which I thought I only had $5, so that was an unexpected surprise. K-Mart had tons of TP and was completely stocked, I don’t think anyone in my area realized how awesome of a deal this was!! I’ll send you a pictures of my receipt and me standing beside my haul. I could never sit on them…lol!!!!

            • Awesome! I couldn’t believe how many my Kmart had in stock either! After telling my cashier about the deal and how good it was even without coupons, she said that she was going to get some after work.
