    About HT taking competitor's coupons-

    I was at the Raleigh Edwards Mill location and the clerk there told us. The customer in front of us had just used a Kroger coupon.

    Today at lunch I was at the Cary Harrison Ave. store and was able to use a Lowes Foods $1 off (no doubling) coupon for the Campbell's Select Harvest soups.

    I'm sure you're right, it varies from store to store.

    Thanks again!

  • mlwmorales Nov 3, 2010

    I tried using the $1.00 off coupon for produce from Target and HT would not accept it. I was told if it was off the total order it would have worked.

  • twinredheads Nov 3, 2010

    Krusteaz boxed muffin mixes were included in the deal at Kroger. There is a .50 coupon from 10/17 that doubled. I ended up getting two boxes (with two coupons and the $5.00 off 10) for .50 each. Not too bad since they are regularly priced at like $2.99.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Nov 3, 2010

    It is no longer available - I will remove the link. Sorry about that - it just went too fast.

  • reneeames Nov 3, 2010

    I went to the Nestle Quick link, but was not able to find out how to print the coupon ? tx

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Nov 3, 2010

    Kroger deals are now updated. Looking forward to heading to Kroger tomorrow to do the 10 item mega event.

    Thanks for the info, happygirl08!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Nov 3, 2010

    Harris Teeter deals from the sales ad are updated. :-) Working on Kroger next.

  • HappyGirl08 Nov 3, 2010

    The only beware HT I can remind everyone of is the HT at Meadowmont in Chapel Hill. Any time I have ever tried a comp coupon in there, or any other "special" coupon they turn it down. I declare I could take one in there and they would say no because the print on the paper is black! Its crazy.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Nov 3, 2010

    Thanks RCC and total. My 9 yr old has strep according to the CVS Minute Clinic we visited at 8:30 am this morning. The good news is that she is on antibiotics now and is resting comfortably watching her fav tv show. The nurse practitioner, Tiffany, was super nice and excellent with my daughter, which made the visit easier. And I told her all abotu HT super doubles so hopefully she will save a few bucks this week!

    Rohu - HT will take competitors coupons for total off you total purchase. It is in their policy that they will not take comp coupons for a specific product. With that said, some stores are loose with the policy and may take them. Which store were you at and what type of comp coupons were they taking?

    KLW - the Barilla deal was a nice surprise! I also picked up a couple free boxes with the $1 printables I had. I'll post my totals and deals on the HT Super Doubles thread.

    RCC - I posted the $1 Target produce coupon a week or so ago. Good to know it was reset - thanks!

  • KLW Nov 3, 2010

    I hit the Barilla pasta deal at HT...and it's not just the regular Barilla pasta that is 60 cents a box (pictured in the ad), it's the Barilla Plus too, which we use and it's usually $2.25 a box! I just finished filling up two more boxes of donated food with all the crazy soup and pasta deals! I got Campbells Select Harvest soups for 25 cents at HT, combining the sale ($1.25 each) with a doubled IP coupon for $1 off of two cans, found at campbellskitchen.com.
