Harris Teeter Super Doubles CONFIRMED starting Sunday!

Posted September 16, 2016

Super Doubles confirmation e-mail

It's a go!

Harris Teeter has confirmed in the weekly Friday e-mails that just went out that they are offering the fabulous Super Doubles event running Sunday, September 18 through Tuesday,September 20!

The event begins at 7 am on Sunday and ends at midnight on Tuesday.

I am working on the Super Doubles list now and plan to have it published by Friday afternoon.

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.

* Be sure to get rainchecks for the items that are on sale and out of stock (if your store allows it) . 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).

* Go through the rainchecks you already have to see it there are $1 - $2 coupons available to stack with them. Some of my best deals during every Super Doubles event as using rainchecks from previews weeks with coupons.

* 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!

    nstutt - I hear ya. I was so excited to see a grocery store going in on that road, and hoped for a new chain for this area. No such luck.

    Yes I live in Clayton but have long since stopped going there. A year ago or so when I went at around 7AM and there was a line back to the frozen foods or over half as long as the store itself. That was when I decided not to go there anymore! BTW, a new grocery is opening on Cleveland Road near me. Except it is a Food Lion. As if there were not enough of those around.

    I prefer Sunday's as long as I can get in and out by 8am, there's still plenty of time to get to church. Work days are out of the question for me. So I guess the bottom line is that I appreciate HT doing it both ways.

    That is my plan also. DANNY22

    Sunday is not a good day for me. Church comes first. Hopefully, there will something left Monday.

    Dianelucrasat, I feel your pain. The shelves in the Clayton store are usually totally cleared. I don't even bother going there anymore for SD. My plan is to try Cary this time. At least there are enough stores that if one doesn't have something, perhaps another will if it's that important to me.

    Em2s - I am so glad it helped! I have been getting my e-mail about 10 on Thursday evenings, most weeks, which I love. Sleep well!

  • Em2s Sep 15, 2016

    Faye - Awesome! Thank you for sharing :) My Savings Alert email usually arrives around 5:30 or 6:00 am each Friday morning. And logging onto the HT website prior to that results in a message that "No savings alerts are available. Check back on Friday..." So, you made my night!! I'll have sweet dreams about bargains ;-) Hope you rest well, too!

    I'm not a fan of the 3 day event!! I'll Take it but It's hard to find the good deals because their gone by the time I get there!!! I've tried several different times of the day but HT in Wilson is always out. I'll probably try printed coupons over the ones out of the paper. The last super double I saw some really abusing the system!!

    Dr D - Thank you! The more confirmations, the better. :-)
