Thursday Thoughts: Harris Teeter e-VIC coupons

Posted September 15, 2011

Do you use the Harris Teeter e-coupons available each week? If not, you are missing out on some wonderful savings! Read on for the details about stacking e-coupons and how they work.

Harris Teeter offers electronic coupons that can be added to your VIC rewards card. These coupons are loaded to your VIC card and you do not need a paper coupon to redeem them. When you buy the qualifying item and they swipe your VIC card, the discount comes off automatically at the register.

The BEST thing about these electronic coupons is that you can couple them with manufacturer's coupons! And, if your manufacturer's coupon is .99 or less, it will double and Harris teeter will also take off the e-coupon!

Here are some basic facts about the program

E-VIC coupons are run through a program called Zavers and are often referred to as ZVR coupons here on the blog.

To sign up for the free E-VIC coupons program, you have to have an online account registered on HarrisTeeter.com with your VIC Card number.

Once you have signed up for an online Harris Teeter account, you will then be able to load e-VIC coupons to your card. You can load coupons to your card through your My Harris Teeter account on the Harris Teeter website or through the link provided in your Wednesday and Friday Harris teeter e-VIC e-mails.

Every Wednesday and Friday, you will receive an e-mail from Harris Teeter including information about the weekly e-VIC deals and specials. There will also be a link on the e-mail for E-VIC coupons. Click that link to go to the page on the Harris Teeter website where you can add coupons to your VIC card.

You can see the coupons you have saved to your account by clicking on My Saved Offers. I suggest printing out your offers so know what e-coupons you have available when you are shopping. It can take up to an hour for the e-coupons to be available to use at the store so give yourself some time before adding them to the card and heading into the store to shop.

You can save up to 99 different coupons to your account at any time.  After 99 have been saved, you can't save any more. You will have to remove some of the coupons before you can add any more.

The coupons do expire and you can see the expiration dates when you add them to your card.

You can use each coupon once per transaction. Sometimes they do become available to re-load to your card and use again in another transaction.

If a coupon does not come off the receipt as expected, head to customer service and they should look up your account to verify it should have been taken off. You should then receive a refund for the coupon amount. If customer service is unable to assist you, call the corporate customer service number at 1-800-432-6111.

Again, you can use a paper manufacturer's coupon with an e-VIC e-coupon on the same product! You can also use an e-VIC coupon with any sales.

    I noticed that Nancy...I was able to stock up on yogurt yesterday. My 6 year old devours it!

    lol - it is a game and you can win, over and over again :)

    You'll find that HT is the only store that allows "stacking" a paper coupon with their digital coupons, so it's a huge bonus in savings that you can't get anywhere else!

    Thanks so much for this! I actually used it last night and saved an additional $4.70 off my order today at HT. I'm getting addicted to this couponing stuff...it's like a big game : )

    Who was the lady that needed the Ocuvite coupons? Can you let me know I have 2 I'd be happy to mail them to you! My email is: williams.susan789@gmail.com

    perhaps we all need to give HT feedback that we'd like to be able to print all of our ZVRs not just 28 at a time? I too noticed that I seemed to be missing some ZVRs on my printout but I thought maybe they had expired or I had used them.

  • Nancy Sep 15, 7:29 p.m.

    Love the ZVR's! Looking at my last receipt, I've saved $129.45 so far, does anyone remember when the program began?

  • hollyjenkins Sep 15, 5:36 p.m.

    I love the e-vic program! I haven't quite figured out the best method for staying on top of what's available on there with what I am shopping for, but I've saved $24 with e-vics since August! :)

    If you're signing up for e-vic don't forget to link your card to a school of your choice. You have to re-link every year, and HT will donate money to the your school through their Together in Education program.

    If you have a smartphone you can pull up all of your ZVRs, E-vics and sales flyers right at the store! It works well unless you use it to show the guy in electronics a picture of the xbox controller your husband wants you to pick up at Wal-mart and then realize that he wrote a very private note under it!lol!
