becoming more and more like kroger's. i guess we all knew this was coming since they were brought out by kroger's and they stopped this program. ht said they would not change and be like kroger's, what a joke! i read where no coupons where allowed on mgr's specials and closeouts as well, is it just digital or paper or both?

And if Kroger and Food Lion's parent company, Ahold, merge (there have been rumors in the last week), then things will get even more interesting!
luvstoQ - I hope they do have the store brand digital coupons like Kroger has. Those really do save money when the store brand product is on sale and you can couple the coupon.
ThomasG - in the past, the digital coupons have not counted towards the "like" coupons limits at these stores. They only applied to paper coupons presented at the register. Not sure how HT will handle the digital coupons with the new policy. We shall see.

Bah humbug Harris Teeter. Liking you less and less these days. :(

I realized after posting that the 'new' digital coupons are just like all the other stores. They are basically the same ones that you can print from coupons.com, except if you use them instead of paper, they will not double!!!
Kroger also has special 'Kroger coupons' that are digital that can really help you save, wonder if HT will eventually have that type also??

Lately my digital never came off anyway so it's really not going to effect my shopping that much!!

All good things must come to an end :sadwalk: Although, honestly, I never abused this as much as I should have. Part of this was because there were so few good digital offers anyway. Maybe the new program will bring in a better variety of digital Qs?
I mostly used it to stock up on Yoplait yogurts. So I guess I'll be buying Siggi's and So Delicious from now on. The recent Palermo pizza double dip was truly great though!

Asking again ( with new question ) just to clarify for myself :
HT allows 3 like coupons per 3 like items - correct ??
Does the digital coupon count as 1 of the 3 ??
Kroger allows 5 like coupons per 5 like items .
Same question-: does a digital count as one of the 5 ??
I guess I am asking any combo of digital, printed/internet and Sunday/newspaper/snail mail/magazine coupons must be a maximum of 3 ( per 3 like items) at HT and 5 ( per 5 like items) at Kroger - correct ??
Is Food Lion 3coupon s( any combo ) as well or more ??

Well, no surprise here - as has been mentioned - just like Kroger. Will be using very few of them, as, of course, they will not double. Have used very few of them lately anyway, so very little will change for me. Knew it would not be advantageous for the customer - never is!! ;-(

The cost of shopping their will go up for me I always try to use the stacking it makes for a great deal especially on a fixed income.
VLYNN, Mrs Faye it mentions closeout(carts and racks up front around the registers) items, not clearance items that are on the regular shelves mostly BOGO are my thoughts wrong on this one.

This sounds like Kroger's policy so I'm not surprised that Harris Teeter is following suit. As far as I'm concerned, this is not a good change. I don't like that you can't use both an e-VIC digital coupon along with a paper one. It's going to be harder to save as much as I have been. I will probably avoid the digital coupons.

I really hate that they will not allow you to use the digital coupons on clearance items. I’ve found great deals in the past coupling them with paper coupons & clearance sales. This is making HT more like Kroger, so pretty soon, they’ll be no need for two different names!
