Harris Teeter Super Doubles rumor!

Posted April 17, 2014

It's looking very good for another Harris Teeter Super Doubles event starting April 23! This means that they will double coupons that are $2 or less!  Although I have not seen the ad yet and HT has not yet confirmed on their Facebook page, multiple stores have mentioned the event to blog readers!  I should have a confirmation by Saturday.

I will start the deals list this weekend.  My thanks to those who e-mailed me with info about the event!

FYI - There will be no new coupon inserts in the Sunday paper for 4/20, but there will be coupons in the paper on 4/27.

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.

    Everyone who has contacted me or posted on the FB page has said their store confirmed Super Doubles. Hotcouponworld.com is also confirming Super Doubles and they are always reliable. I would be shocked if they did triples company-wide. Sometime new stores run an extended triples promo and maybe that is happening somewhere else.

  • immortalityinmotion Apr 18, 2014

    I read on another website that some stores are saying that they're doing triples??

    That is a shame, it only takes a few to ruin the experience for all in the long run. I am just trying to save our family $$ on groceries, not steamroll the shelves from other shoppers like I have seen.
    On another note, can't wait for the Super Dubbs at Harris Teeter!

    Thanks again to the folks who sent me e-mails about the SD promotion! You both read this blog and post here and I very much appreciate the information. One of our Facebook readers also posted today that her store manager confirmed SD at HT for next Wednesday!

    Realstory - such a sad story about the coupon theft at FL stores. I am surprised they don't put the Sunday paper behind the counter so people have to ask for it as they check out. That would take care of that!

    LFB - we all have days like that!

    I will add in that the local harris teeters have been excellent at restocking things out of stock during these sales - and in general.

    I've started doing a lot of my shopping at harris teeter because of their promotions, plus the general good attitude their employees possess. I've been in there many times where employees have came up asking if they can find something for me or offering info about when a sold-out product will be coming back in-stock.

    But back on subject - very excited to hear about the potential SD! I have some great coupons for the next SD sale. Keep us posted Faye - Thanks for all you do!

    The hoarder situation is frustrating but one of those gray areas - and complaining too much may make the company not even want to fool with the super doubles.

    Sadly there is a lot of people in general who I'd like to call things they won't let me put up here. I went to get a N&O this past sunday at food lion and while checking to make sure the coupon inserts were in there, I noticed they were missing. A store employee came over and talked to me - telling me about how many people she sees that come in to the store and just get the coupons out, but don't buy the paper. She said she's complained to mgmt about it but little has been done.

    Very frustrating. Frankly I'd like to see them slap a set of cuffs on people like this and charge them with larceny over a $2 paper.

    Glad to brought it to the managers attention! And call corporate too and bend their ear as well! We're sick of the cheaters in the system.
    Was just talking to a couple of employees last night and it seems some stores are beginning to crack down, but it needs to be a firm directive from corporate I think.
