    one of the mangers at John Rex BLVD harris teeters told me that they well only take walgreens MQ b/c I tried to use Rite aid's like I've done before they use to take them but they said they don't take them anymore she said that harris teeters is going to be changing there coupon policy.

    got 3 lindt chocolate bars, 1 all detergent, 1 vlasic pickles, 1 sparkle paper towels, 1 ICBINB, 1 Country Crock, 1 Smart Balance Milk, 1 Hot Pockets Snackers, 2 Stouffers Saute Meals, 1 Carpet Fresh, 1 Glass Plus, 1 Pepsi next, 3 Turkey Hill Ice Creams and a bag of kit n kaboodle (had to buy, big bag) for 22.00 OOP. This is both my lowes foods and HT. had to go to HT customer service as the cashier did not scan all my coupons like she said she did. Customer service refunded me $8.36 for the unscanned coupons with no problems and they were super nice. Thanks ladies for the heads up on counting your coupons on your receipt if you are unsure. They had missed four of them at 1.00 each.

    I've been too busy to do the double! :) Thanks for all the heads up though. Maybe I'll find time soon.

    Went to ht on main st in fv yesterday around 1100 am was able to get. Everything on my list. Saved about 45.00. They were steady due to senior discount

  • queene01 Apr 19, 2012

    I highly suggest on your shopping list you write down what coupons you use and how much cashier forgot to ring up a dollar off... Because of that lost I was easily able to sew dustier service and get my two dollars back
    Spent 27.17 saved 58.78!!!
    I got...
    2 kraft milk bite bars, 3 sara lee pound cakes, 6 v8 splash juice, 3 special k cereal, 1 violia, 1 alexis sweet potato fries, 2 jell-o pudding mix, 1 hellman mayo, 1 ICBINB butter spread, 2 yo-crunch yogurt, 1 yoplait light,1 carefree, LF cheese slice, and 1 kc marinade

    amaneschi - It depends on the HT. Just ask the Customer Service desk at yours if they do. I shop at the Fuquay HT on Main, and they accept both ECB and RR.

  • amaneschi Apr 19, 2012

    I'm sure this has been asked before but I am having trouble finding the answer. Does HT accept CVS Extra Care Bucks? Has anyone tried this?

  • blstarlin Apr 19, 2012

    Just did a quick trip to LF at 42/50 and got 3 carefree liners (free), 1 kraft Fresh Take (.50), Velveeta Skillets meal (.19), and 1 Voskos Crunch yogurt (free with promo from FB a while ago). Total OOP: .98! Saved: 12.85

    Another freebie is the Uncle Ben's Rice cups are at HT on sale 10/$10 and there was a q on $1/2 Uncle Ben's products. My hubby loves rice, so I've been stocking up.
