Easier E-VIC savings

Posted January 10, 2011

I’m a regular at Harris Teeter and LOVE getting my weekly e-mail about e-VIC specials. I love that you don’t have to have coupons to get the deals. That’s because, despite my constant efforts and despite the great coupon organizer that Smart Shopper Faye Prosser, aka Coupon Queen, gave me and despite all of her individualized training, I still can’t seem to get my couponing act together.

So I’m really excited about the Charlotte-based grocery chain’s new electronic coupon program. Harris Teeter began rolling it out at the end of 2010. Today, the company announced it’s now available to all e-VIC customers.

How does it work? Harris Teeter says e-VIC members can link valuable manufacturer coupons directly to their VIC card. Every Wednesday, when the e-VIC e-mail goes out, you simply browse the list of coupons and link the ones you like directly to your VIC card by clicking “Save it.”

The first time you go through the process, you’ll have to “accept the terms and conditions of the program” and confirm your customer profile. But after that, you’ll be able to save the coupon automatically. The chain says it will regularly add coupons.

With couponing that easy, maybe I can finally become a coupon queen!

    @Dreaming - No, they just expire.

    Do you have to buy the ones you click? Such as you changed your mind, and didn't need the item..

    The e-Vic coupons don't double. One thing I love about them is that, if you print out a shopping list from the Harris Teeter Weekly Specials email, it includes a list of your saved e-Vic coupons at the bottom so you don't have to remember them!

    I hate Walmart but that's where I shop for groceries because I don't have time for those stores that play games with those stupid cards. I want to buy what I need when I need it for the lowest price not wait until it's on sale to horde it until it goes back on sale.

    I don't think that they double either.

    I hope what happygirl said is true because I don't think the coupons on the evic will double......or do they?

    FYI, I have done this and taken paper coupons for the same item I have an eVic coupon for. They will deduct and double the paper coupon in addition to the eVic one. Super deal I think! I have noticed too that my local kroger will do the same with its eCoupons and paper coupons so that is very coupon friendly.
