Harris Teeter Super Doubles good deals list

Harris Teeter Super Doubles List
February 17 – February 23, 2010

Harris Teeter will be Super Doubling this week starting Wednesday, February 16. Here are the rules and my take on them:

They will double coupons that are $1.98 or less. For instance, a $1.50 coupon is worth $3.00 doubled and a $1 coupon is worth $2.

They will double up to 20 coupons per day. Period – end of story. Don’t go to different Harris Teeters trying to use your VIC card and get more than 20 coupons Super Doubled per day. The registers are very smart, they know when you have already doubled 20 in a day and the policy is very clear.

They will double up to 3 identical coupons per day. So, if I have 4 coupons for $1.00 off Lyson Wipes, they are only supposed to double 3 of them.

Their BOGO policy is that they will take 1 coupon per BOGO deal and that you are not allowed to use 2 coupons on a BOGO deal (one for each item). Many (but not all) HT’s are fine with you just buying one of a BOGO item and it will ring up at half price and they will let you use a coupon for that one item and it will double. BUT – not all HT’s will let you do this so don’t be surprised if they don’t allow you to use the coupon on 1 of a BOGO deal. YMMV – which means – your mileage may vary. What happens in Vegas…..oh – different saying, sorry. It means that what one HT does another may do differently.

Doubling of coupons that have Do Not Double on them: Since the dawn of couponing time, nearly all stores have doubled coupons that automatically double at the register, even when the coupon indicates Do Not Double. Many internet printable coupons have Do Not Double (also written as DND) on them. As long as the bar code starts with a 5, these coupons automatically double at the register as long as the coupon amount is within the doubling amount the store allows. BUT, most stores also have a policy that they don’t double Do Not Double coupons (but they have been doing it anyway). I tell you this because recently, some stores (mostly HT’s) have stopped allowing these coupons to double automatically. They pull them out of your stack and manually enter then so they won’t double. Am I happy about it? Of course not. Is it their right to not double them? Yes – so too bad for us. Some stores still double these coupons and I very much appreciate those stores. What can we do? Call the manufacturer’s and ask them nicely to stop putting the Do Not Double wording on their coupons.

Additional Advice: Many of the best deals sell out quickly (sometimes by 8:00 am on the first morning). Often, the stores cannot get more of those items in before the sale is over because all the stores want the same items. Don’t depend on Super Doubles to stock up on your groceries for the next year. Use it as a great way to get some good deals, enjoy those deals and don’t stress that they are sold out of items. Unless you get to the store at the crack of dawn the first day (most stores start Super Doubling at 7:00 AM Wednesday) you won’t get everything you want. That’s just the way it is. Complaining to the manager just makes them dread Super Doubles even more and only puts couponers in a bad light. And – there are so many other great deals every day with regular doubles that we have much to be thankful for. I love chatting with the other couponers and sharing coupons during Super Doubles. If you see me in the store, don’t hesitate to say hello!

There are so many good deals this time around and Hot Coupon World (www.hotcouponworld.com) put together a great list of the best buys. Below are many of the deals from their list. Click on the link in the gray box for the complete list. Keep in mind that different areas of the country get different coupon amounts so we may not have all the coupons that were listed.

With most of the deals listed, the top line shows the item and sale price, the next line shows the coupon to use, the date and insert it was in and the price after coupon.

Have fun, enjoy your deals and please post your savings here! I love to see how much everyone is saving!

    darryl - looks like the nature's path coupon is no longer on the site - sometimes these go quickly. So sorry!

  • ardithertzog Feb 20, 2010

    thanks for all the great tips!! here's one I wanted to share:

    look for a "Pert Plus for Men" shampoo with a "Try Me Free" sticker on the cap - there's a current rebate (see http://www.trypertplusfree.com/forms/pertplusmen_rebate.pdf ) where you can get the purchase price back - making this already-great-buy a money-maker (I think!)!

  • oscardw Feb 19, 2010

    I am having trouble with the nature's path coupon. It takes me to the site, but I can't find the coupon. Can anyone point me to where the coupon is?

  • KLW Feb 19, 2010

    wildfrench...I go to the one on Falls/Spring Forest and don't have a problem with them doubling them.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 19, 2010

    Thanks so much for your feedback, bender and congrats on your great savings! There have been some fabulous meat deals in the last couple weeks on everything from chicken to london broil to snow crab legs! Your freezer runneth over. :-)

    Give yourself at least 8 weeks to get your overstock going, get your coupon inventory up and running and get used to the ins and outs of couponing. At that point, you will find it much easier to get $70 for $20.

    Keep up the great work!

    wildfrech I have no idea how that HT handles DND coupons these days. They used to double them with no issues about a year ago but I have not shopped there for a while (since Derek, the awesome manager at that store, went to the Fayetteville HT store). If anyone shops at Dereks store in Fayetteville, please tell him Faye says hi!

  • benderdj5 Feb 18, 2010

    I would just like to say I took your class last week at JCC on the 9th and I have been a coupon freak since. Today I went and stocked up on meat because I didn't have alot left in my freezers and I was so excited (and yes i stocked up fo 4-6 weeks). I only went to 2 of the 4 stores I wanted to but I saved 131.00 dollars I was estatic, I saved more than I paid. I know it will take a while but I can't wait till I get better at seeing the deals and get that one reciept when my subtotal is 70 and only pay like 20 dollars or so. That is my goal....but thanks so much for sharing this with us.

  • wildfrenchrose Feb 18, 2010

    Does anyone know if the HT on Falls of the Nuese and the one on Six Forks prevents doubling on DND coupons?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 18, 2010

    Great job Allyson!! Isn't this fun??!!

  • allysongreene84 Feb 18, 2010

    My husband and I went last night only spent $32.32 and saved $95.64! That is the best we've ever done!

  • Christine-Jade Feb 18, 2010
