    Loved loved loved getting 10 cans of Progresso soup for $10 + change. Soup warms me up!! $1 soup makes me happy!!

    Also, with them placing the WW points on the can it makes it so easy.

    the Beef Pot Roast is my fave. I'll go back tomorrow. :)

    ...sorry, forgot to add the fact that they were peelies on some bags of Goldfish ;)

  • Trickat Jan 14, 2011

    There were 1.50/4 Pepperidge Farm Goldfish at the Holly Spring HT, which makes them about .62 each this week!

    wildfrenchrose - I read your post again, if you're asking how to find out what YOUR e-vic special deals are, ones pre-loaded to your card as stipulated in the email, you can take your e-vic card to any customer service desk at any HT and they can print it off for you and you'll know what deals have been assigned to your card.

  • Nancy Jan 14, 2011

    april, they should have no problem giving you the free dryer sheets with your receipt in hand as it will show you did not get them. I know one thing, HT is big on customer service, and the purpose of the promo was to get customers to try THEIR house brand, it would be in their best interest to happily let you have the dryer sheets :)

    wildfrenchrose, pull up the harris teeter web site, at and login. If you have not created a login yet, do so, then when you load those digital coupons, they'll attach to your card :)

    Sweet deal, that General Mills offer of $6 instant savings when you buy 20 items!

    Bought 2 Totino's Pizza rolls, 7 Grands biscuits, 6 crescent and 5 cinnamon rolls and between sale prices, coupons and the instant savings, spent $4.20 :)

    And just in time, the last major event that offered the super doubles, catalina's on Pillsbury products and the sale on those items found me just winding down on that stockpile.

    ashleeregister - I had trouble printing the Northland coupons, too! They would work an a PC with Windows XP, but not one with Vista or Windows 7 on it....go figure!

  • kcampbell113 Jan 13, 2011

    Did really well tonight at HT - McCormick Cinnamon is on sale for $1.95 so it was .45c after the coupon. I picked up some other spices with the coupon to so got the $2.50 of next purchase Cat. I did the 20 GM products since I had coupons for everything and got my $3.50 for next purchase Cat on that. I happened to have 2 of the Wisk coupons and was able to do the Wisk/dryer sheet deal twice. For the Caprisun/peanut butter snack crker deal you can get any HT filled snack crker. Also used some old rainchecks then found a bag of bananas in the ripe fruit bin for .40c. The person who checked me out verified I got my $6 off for the GM deal and mentioned it had not been working earlier in the day so check your receipts before you leave! I also want to mention there are some really good coupons in the Jan/Feb issue of Weight Watchers magazine. Included are a .50c off 2 Light Progresso soups and $1 if 1 boca burger plus several more that I will use.

    I know when I came back from the summer, there were coupons from Harris Teeter, something like $5 or $10 off $25, one for 4 weeks. The note that was with it said that they noticed I hadn't been shopping there in awhile and the coupons were a gift to me and if there was anything they needed to know about, as to why I had stopped shopping there, to let them know. I was in NY for the summer :), so needless to say, I didn't shop any grocery stores down here. I'm just guessing that could be some of the reasons as to why you are receiving coupons like that.Or they could just want to "reward" their customers that are loyal, who knows? Enjoy them, I certainly did since I had to stock up after not being here all summer.
