Harris Teeter was kind enough to confirm the Super Doubles promotion on Twitter today (Monday) so it's time to get those coupons ready!
The Super Doubles promotion lasts from February 15 – February 21, 2012. Scroll down below the deals list for the Super Doubles coupon policies and tips on how to make your Super Doubles shopping trip more successful.
This list will continue to grow in the next few days. At this point, I have included a list of sales that will continue through Super Doubles and their coupon match-ups. Already there are some great deals! In case you are wondering how I know what will remain on sale, I walked the aisles of the HT at 401 and 10/10 for an hour or so this morning looking at shelf tags to see what would remain on sale during super doubles.
This evening, I will start adding deals using regular priced items and coupons match-ups. By sometime Tuesday, I’ll add the deals for items going on sale 2/15 (once I have an ad preview).
In the deals list, ZVR is the abbreviation for Zavers, the Harris Teeter digital coupon portal. You can add the ZVR coupons to your Vic card through the e-coupons link on your weekly e-mail or by logging on to your account at harristeeter.com. They can be coupled with hard copy paper coupons for some great deals! ZVR digital coupons will not double.

Coupon policies during Super Doubles:
* HT will Super Double coupons worth up to $1.98 face value. A $1.50 coupon will double to $3.00. A $1.00 coupon will double to $2.00. A $2.00 coupon will not double at all and will only be taken at face value ($2.00).
* HT begins super doubling coupons at 7:00 AM on the first day of the sale. 24 hour stores do not super double coupons before 7:00 AM on the first day (at least that is how it has worked in the past).
* HT will super double/double up to 20 coupons per household per day. Spouse's cards registered with the same address are linked because the policy is 20 per household, per day. If you have twenty $1 coupons and twenty .75 coupons, only 20 total will double. They will not double 20 coupons that are under $1 and also super double another 20 coupons that are over $1. It's 20 total coupons doubled per day.
* HT policy is to double up to 3 identical coupons (as long as you buy the product required for each coupon, of course). So, if you have five $1.00 coupons for a product, the policy is to only super double the first three.

Things to remember about Super Doubles:
Please make sure you read the coupon wording and only use the coupons on the sizes allowed. Some other deal sites list coupons that are not valid on the sizes of products they are recommending (for instance, using a $1 coupon on a trial size when the coupon clearly indicates that it excludes trial sizes). Cashiers are watching closely for fraud and it just holds up the line and gives couponers a bad name if the stores feel like they have to constantly deal with people trying to cheat the policy. If we stay within the policies, the stores are more likely to continue these promotions.
Remember that just because you have a $1 or $1.50 coupon for an item it does not automatically make it a good deal, even when it is super doubled.
Keep in mind that there are some freebie sites listing coupons that we did not get in our local paper. They may have received those coupons in their local paper but we did not. You can always check the coupon database on the home page of the smart shopper blog to see if we got a specific coupon.
If you do not get to the store at the crack of dawn the first day of super doubles, many of the best deals will be gone by 10 am. The stores will get at least 1 or 2 more trucks in during the promotion so check with your store to see when the next truck comes in and try to be there early the next morning when the shelves should be better stocked (at least for some items). Sometimes the warehouse runs out of product so even if your store is ordering it, the store will not get any more stock during the promo because there is none to be had.
Always get rain checks for the out of stock sale items and use them during the next super doubles (Harris Teeter rain checks do not expire).
Feel free to print out the good deals list and share it with your store manager so they have a better idea of what to order.
If you find some good deals and are pleased with your super doubles experience, please call the HT customer service number to thank them. It's always good to hear positive feedback and customer service people don't get enough pats on the back. The number is: 1-800-432-6111, option 2.
Have fun and good luck!
