Super Doubles brag thread!

Posted February 16, 2011

Save some big bucks at Harris Teeter? Here's the place to tell us all about it! Share your totals so we can see how much this blog saved altogether during this event!

 Thanks to everyone who has added their totals so far! I am so impressed with your savings!

Super Doubles Totals Day 1

Here are the totals from my transaction today (Wednesday). I didn't get there until a little after 9 am, but they still had a good amount of stock and I was very pleased. You can see a picture of my receipt and the products I purchased to the left.

My total before sales and coupons was: $71.83

Total amount saved: $71.65

Amount spent: .18 (yes, 18 cents)

% saved: 99%

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my Harris Teeter?!

Here's the breakdown:

9 Green Giant frozen veggie boxes on sale for $1 each - 3 coupons for $1/3 (found at a few weeks ago) = .33 per box

1 Smart Balance milk $3.89 - $1.50 insert coupon = .89

2 Betty Crocker potatoes $1 each - peelie coupon (don't remember when or where I got it) for $1/2 = FREE

1 Smart Balance popcorn BOGO for $1.60 - .75 insert coupon

3 Ragu sauces (I had a rancheck making them $1.50 each) - $1.25/3 insert coupon =  .66 each

2 Wishbone dressings $2.00 - $1 insert coupon = FREE

1 Chi chi's salsa BOGO for $1.50 - .50 insert coupon

2 Wholly Guacamole $2.29 - $1.50 printable coupon = FREE

2 Grande tortilla chips $2.50 each - $1.50/2 coupon = $1 each

2 Simply juice raspberry lemonade $2.50 each - $1 printable coupon = .50 each

1 Clorox bleach $1.99 - $1 printable coupon (I posted about it a few days ago) = FREE

1 Mariani dried pineapple snack $1.50 - .75 insert coupon = FREE

1 Mentos candy .79 - .50 insert coupon = FREE

1 Oscar Mayer deli creations BOGO for $1.25 - $1 peelie coupon given to me by a friend = FREE

1 Oscar Mayer smoked turkey deli meat $2.50 - $1 peelie coupon given to me by a friend = FREE

I also used a $10 CVS ECB because it is Harris teeter's policy to take competitors couponswhen the coupon is for a total off your total order (liek a coupon for $4 off a $20 order). Although I have used ECB's and Walgreens Register Rewards at HT before, the CSR told me today that they don't consider CVS to be a competitor, but he would take my coupon this time. So, your mileage may vary on this one depending on your store. The RR's from Walgreen's usually scan just fine because they are manufacturer's coupons, but they have to manually enter the ECB's so your store may or may not allow this. He was very nice and I told him it I understood if he couldn't take it but he said he would do it this time. Wasn't that nice?!

    Way to go Me!! Whooo hooo. I love Harris Teeter!! Also about Harris Teeter they were so nice to me, not that this will happen for everyone everytime but I had a coupon for a product where I had to buy 2 to use the coupon but because they were out and with 1 left they let me use the coupon for 1/2 the value which was very nice of them. Yes I could of asked for a raincheck but the line was long and they were so accomidating plus the coupon was going to expire in 2 days so I left happy :) On a funny note to the lady in Harris Teeter who had a purse full of exploding coupons get yourself a binder, so helpful!

    Harris Teeter VIC: $32.38
    Coupons Tendered: $55.38

    I spent $19.29 and saved $63.24. I could not find the Philly cooking cream cheese at the store off Leesville Rd - not even an empty shelf spot. Has anyone seen these in a HT in the Brier Creek or Durham area?

  • purplepat777 Feb 17, 2011

    I bought $94.42 in groceries but paid only $21.76. That's about 77% savings!

    Carol, it's common for HT to run out of the best deals very quickly during Super Doubles. I've found the best thing to do is to go to the store early enough to be in the check out line by 7 a.m. when the Super Doubles begin. Waiting until later will almost guarantee you miss the best deals.

    OK, the Glade deal wasn't as good as I hoped. At the North Hills location, they were $5.99 but still $1.50 off is better than I could find them anywhere else. I did limit myself to 2 though.

    I spent $75 and saved $75 so 50% savings. I think that's pretty good for me. I'd love to get better but I work full time and just don't have the time or energy to throw into it to get ALL the best deals. AND, it's just the husband and I. Not feeding a lot of kids anymore.

    I bought 4 packages of meat which drove the total price up but they were good deals. Also dog food and cat food that were ok deals but we were running low.

    So between Tues and Wed, Kroger and HT, I spent about $160, saved about $130 and I'm fully stocked for about a month. Not bad.

    I went to the HT in Fuquay at 5:30pm thinking that there would still be a good selection of sale items but that was not the case. Asked the clerk when was restocking and he was hoping by the this common? Do they really run out of stuff that fast? I did get the BC foods and PB but no cereal or pasta sauce.(was not on the flyer but advertised on the blog)

  • LAXMom12 Feb 17, 2011

    Thanks total and Faye --- well at least it was on sale for $1.50 so I'm glad I learned this on a cheap item. :)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 17, 2011

    Geek mom - If it has another company name or logo, most HT's consider it a competitors coupon and won;t take it unless it's for a total off total order. If you have an hT who does....that's awesome!

    LAX - as total posted, register coupons never double. Sad, but true. (Thanks for the help , Total!).

    Now - it's about time I actually type up the regular weekly deals for HT and stop obsessing over Super Doubles! Should have them posted in a bit.

  • t0tAlChA0s Feb 17, 2011

    LAXMom the catalina coupons will not double. =(
