Super Doubles CONFIRMED for August 6-8!

Posted August 4

Harris Teeter will be offering another Super Doubles promotion running from August 6-8!

The promotion was confirmed in the Friday e-Vic e-mail on Friday morning.

Time to get your coupons ready! I'll have a super doubles list posted soon.

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). Your best bet is to get to the store before 7 am if you want to get the freebies and best deals. Some people get there at 6:15 am or earlier and then wait in line until the register allows coupons to begin Super Doubling at 7 am.

* 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. The other 2 will be accepted at face value.

* 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.

* New Raincheck policy as of March 29: Harris Teeter will no longer let customers combine a raincheck with a coupon for the same item. In addition, rainchecks now expire 60 days after they are issued. All old rainchecks with no expiration are no longer valid.

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

* Enjoy the deals you are able to get and please remember that many of the best deals will sell out quickly. The stores will reorder those items, but often, the warehouse runs out so they cannot get the stock. Please be nice to the store employees as it is not their fault if items are out of stock. And if you are excited about your great deals, give Harris Teeter a call at their Customer Service number, send them an e-mail via their website or post a comment to their Facebook page to thank them. Happy Shopping!

    Janineperry - I agree with you regarding the start date. It would be nice if they started it on a different day.

    I don't shop on Sundays either (Sabbath Day). By Monday most good deals are sold out and with the new Rain check policy, I'm out of luck! Very sad. If HT wants to only have 3 days, with they'd start on Friday or Saturday.

    I'm a nightowl, but even I don't want to go at 3am. I have to go out of town because I don't have a HT in Lexington, NC. :(
    I have done SD at the Outer Banks. I didn't plan it that way, but grandsons and I weren't going to miss out! They love having lots of great items to donate when their schools in Holly Springs, NC have food drives.

    swbjfb - Great job on your HT savings yesterday!! And I agree - no 3 am shopping for me, either!

    Forgot to say I also live in Wilson. Saw a lady at Wal Mart yesterday she told me that she gets at 3am on Sunday to go to HT. Not me!!

    I agree with you READINGTOU, I don't shop on Sunday either. I also buy the good deals which are things I usually buy. I did my weekly shopping yesterday at HT. Very satisfied with my purchase, spent $109.77 OOP $39.74. Had 12 coupons plus SR discount.

    I agree Faye. The three day events don't really work for me. I don't usually shop on Sunday and the Wilson store is usually out of the good deals early and doesn't restock. It's all good though. Harris Teeter has good deals every week as well as Aldi and other stores. I just try to stock up on the things we use when they are a good deal. A lot of the things I get at super doubles are donation items.

    laalaa99stl - are you SURE you didn't plan your vacation around SD?? :-D

    I have to admit that the 3 day events are much less appealing to me than the 7 day ones - especially since they start on a Sunday, which is usually the only day I don't have to get up early.

    As we all know, so many of the best deals are gone by 7:30 am Sunday at many stores (including my closest 3) and shoppers get there at 5 am to snag them. At the last SD, I was shocked to hear people got to one store at 3 am at then got in line and took a nap until they could check out at 7 am. It's simply not worth my time to do that just to use 20 coupons.

    Another thing I like about the more predictable SD format is that you an actually plan your vacations around it. I'm not saying I do that; I'm saying I /could/ do that :p
