Harris Teeter Super Doubles rumor!

Posted March 21, 2014

It's looking very good for another Harris Teeter Super Doubles event starting March 26! This means that they will double coupons that are $2 or less! See below for additional information regarding this promotion, Although I have not seen the ad yet and HT has not yet confirmed on their Facebook page, it looks very good for another week of super deals!

I will start the deals list this weekend.  My thanks to everyone who shared on the blog that their stores told them about Super Doubles in the last 2 days!

Coupon policies and tips for shopping Harris Teeter Super Doubles:

* HT will be Super Doubling coupons worth up to $2 face value. This means that a $1.00 coupon will double to $2.00, a $1.50 coupon will double to $3.00 and a $2.00 coupon will double to $4.00!

* HT begins super doubling coupons at 7:00 AM on the first day of the sale. 24 hour stores do not super double coupons before 7:00 AM on the first day (at least that is how it has always worked in the past).

* HT will super double/double up to 20 coupons per household per day. Spouse's cards registered with the same address are linked because the policy is 20 per household, per day. If you have twenty $1 coupons and twenty .75 coupons, only 20 total will double. They will not double 20 coupons that are under $1 and also super double another 20 coupons that are over $1. It's 20 total coupons that are $2 or less doubled per day.

* HT policy is to double up to 3 identical coupons (as long as you buy the product required for each coupon, of course). So, if you have five $1.00 coupons for a product, the policy is to only super double the first three.

* Printable coupons: HT will accept 3 printable coupons per like item, per store, per day, according to their policy. So if you buy 3 identical items and you have a printable coupon for each one, you can use all three. 

* You can use a manufacturer's coupon AND a Harris Teeter ZVR digital e-coupon on the same item (see below for explanation of ZVR's)! Watch the scanner as it totals your order to see if the digital coupons came off and if not, have them fix it at the register. If you forget to check the register screen for any missed digital coupons before you pay, make sure you check your receipt to see if the digital coupons were deducted. If they were not deducted, go to the customer service desk and they should give you the money back for any digital coupons that did not come off correctly.

* Be sure to get rainchecks for the items that are on sale and out of stock. Rainchecks at Harris Teeter do not expire so you can use them at the next Super Doubles if you have coupons to go with them (which often happens). If you get a rain check during Super Doubles and use the rain check the next week, your $1 - $2 coupons will not be Super Doubled. You will still get the sale price, but unless you use the rain check during a Super Doubles week, the coupons will be accepted per their usual coupon doubling policy (.99 or less).

* If your store is out of your favorite deals (and they will be out of some/many of them) ask the customer service folks when the next truck arrives so you know when they will be restocking.

* ZVR's (short for Zavers, the name of the company that processes the digital coupons) are the digital e-coupons that you can add to your Harris Teeter Vic card through harristeeter.com. Go to Harristeeter.com, click on Login/Signup and register your Vic card. Then click on e-coupons and you can add them to your Vic card. When you get to the register, the cashier scans your Vic card and then the product and then at the end of the transaction, the ZVR discount should also be deducted. Make sure you double check that the discount did come off because they do not sometimes. At this time, you can still stack ZVR digital coupons with paper manufacturer coupons at Harris Teeter. Not sure that will continue once Kroger is the owner, but we shall see. Not everyone gets the same ZVR e-coupons so if you see one listed above that you do not have on your digital coupons, it could be that if was not offered to you.

    Thanks for explaining this guys, I'll just stick to the HT I usually go to also.

    I've always had all my ZVR's credit, even if the coupon doubled covered the cost of the item. The computers are set up by corporate, not by each individual store. So if a ZVR did not credit, that would be an error in the system and that happens enough to pay attention to make sure you get all your ZVR credits before you leave the store. If something did not credit, take your receipt directly from the checkout to customer service and have them correct it. They can look up that you have the ZVR on your account, although most times they don't bother.

    I make my grocery list to include written down for my own reminder, what ZVR's should credit so I can check my receipt before I leave the store. There are a couple of HT's I won't shop in because they run 'interference' with coupons, like those marked 'do not double' - they pull aside and manually enter vs just scanning them, for those with a "5" would automatically double otherwise.

    9 won't double. I can understand your feeling that way. She or he was probably having a bad day. Doesn't excuse it but could explain it.

  • live2coupon2save Mar 23, 2014

    Ok. Thanks. I can't remember if it was a 5 or 9. But I know one of them sometimes usually has to enter it in. I was more upset about the way she spoke to me.

  • scoutmomof2 Mar 23, 2014

    As far as the 5 it will double. However if the coupon does not scan the store does not have to take it.

  • scoutmomof2 Mar 23, 2014

    If the coupon covers the entire price of something the zvr will not credit. If the coupon does not cover the entire price of something the zvr comes off for its amount which could result in an overage. There are those who if they go negative on their bill will grab a candy bar. On the rare occurrence this happens to me, I grab a $5 gift card.

  • live2coupon2save Mar 23, 2014

    Gave it to me! I was VERY upset. So, my question is....is this true, do they use a five because they do not want it to double? And does she have the right to not double it?! I would not be as upset if she didn't talk to me in such a rude way while rolling her neck and eyes! This HT is not the one I usually go to but because of time, I had to.

    I am still trying to figure this out....
    So, if I have a ZVR for an item AND a Q, i am able to receive overage, to which I could make up the difference with other items? This has never worked for me! I would love this!

    Also, I shopped at HT a couple of days ago and one of my coupons did not scan, so of course, she had to put it in manually, and this was because it started with a 5 (I knew she would have to enter it). Well the cashier didn't know how to do that so she called the manager over (totally fine, I understand). However, when the manager came over, she rudely said (to me), "I'll do it this time, but the next time I won't. It won't scan because it begins with a 5. The manufacturer does this because they don't want it to double." She then looked at the cashier and said, "I've been trying to learn how to coupon, I've been following an online blog." She then proceeded to write the blog's site down on a piece of paper and....

    The coupon will only double up to the price of the item, so you won't get any overage that way. Now, if you have a ZVR (digital HT coupon you loaded to your customer loyalty card) for that same product, that amount will be deducted and as a result, provide overage there. But you will never get cash back, you have to 'spend' it on other items, which is usually not hard to do :)
    Hope that helps!

    Therese2974 - I would ditto everything that ScoutMomOf2 shared in her post. In respect to where to find coupons, Faye posted a thread on the many different methods/resources available to find coupons, but have no idea how to find where it is at this point in time here on the blog. Hopefully, she has the link to it to share with you.
