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).

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 They can be coupled with hard copy paper coupons for some great deals! ZVR digital coupons will not double.

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!

    With the coupon, is that a good deal on the Wisk?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 15, 2012

    Thanks Melissa - I realized my typo this morning and changed it.

  • twinredheads Feb 15, 2012

    The General Mills Catalina coupon works when you buy 15 products, not $15. Just wanted to clarify for everyone!

  • leeandkaren24 Feb 15, 2012

    New ZVR added this morning. Check before you go!

  • gmjaime Feb 15, 2012

    HT at 401 / 1010 was well stocked with SB milk when I stopped last night on my way home. They not only had the milk case full but the endcap across for that was also well stocked. They are anticipating a run on milk! I have my rain checks and coupons.

    With my work schedule, I am waiting until Saturday morning and when they typically are restocked.

  • Nancy Feb 15, 2012

    Faye - bummer, but we both know that with Frozen Food Month coming up, we'll make up those veggie deals then :)

    And yes, I'm going to mail bomb some crock pot liners to you aha haha! You're going to love them and then you can be hooked like me :)

    I'm still making out my lists, have to shop for brother/sister in law (she's having surgery so she can't shop this one) as well as daughter and our household. I'm going to be scurrying around HT's like crazy tomorrow hoping to get everyone their milk! We're all hooked on it and free is just worth it, especially when I have so many counting on me getting their supply!

    But at least I won't be having to pick up a lot of items in each store though, first one I can manage 20 coupons if everything is in stock - the rest are just milk and crock pot liners mostly :)

    Oh, and hefty bags for all LOL

    Enjoy sleeping in on your princess bed (yes, they are that high off the ground it seems LOL)!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 15, 2012

    Nancy - It looks liek the ad previews we saw were wrong on this one. It's not on the promotion flyer here:

    And it's not on the Express Lane as you pointed out so I'd say it is not on sale this week. No veggie deal for us.

    I'm definitely not getting out of bed early for this one. I would love the free milk, but that's the only thing I raelly needed so I'll just wait until after I finish carpool tomorrow morning. I have a bunch of rainchecks for stuff that should be in stock and will make the trip worth it. If there' sSmart Balance milk when I get there...great! If not, oh well. :-)

    Glad I bought the Green Giant frozen veggies at Lowes Foods this last week!

    Thanks to everyone for adding more deals to the list! I did not get some of the ZVRs you did so didn't know about the Ativia. My Activia ZVR is for $1/2 single serve.

  • Nancy Feb 14, 2012

    leeandkaren, they're not showing up on sale on Express Lane either which makes me believe the Green Giant frozen boxed is not really on sale with any promo :(

    Darn it!

  • leeandkaren24 Feb 14, 2012

    one last thing...If you still have the Bic pen q (it expires tomorrow); you can get a pack for free at HT 1.97-1.00=FREE

  • leeandkaren24 Feb 14, 2012

    Nancy..It's not in mine either. I don't have the buy 10 save $2 either. I received some other promo ones like the cereal buy 4 save $2
