Super Doubles rumor: August 27-29!

Posted August 14

Heads up couponers! It looks like Harris Teeter may be offering another Super Doubles promotion running from August 27 through August 29!

We won't have it officially confirmed until the e-Vic e-mail on Friday, August 25, but my very reliable source has already let me know about the upcoming promotion. You can all thank Daniel for the heads up!

This event does not follow the schedule we have been seeing for Super Doubles but having 2 events in August would be great!

Time to get your coupons ready. I'll have a super doubles list posted the week of the event.

You can print coupons from the Smart Shopper coupons link below and there were 2 inserts in the paper today, August 13.

Coupon policies and tips for shopping Harris Teeter Super Doubles:

* HT should 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.

* 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!

    So I have a question.. wasn't sure where to ask it.. Why do many manufacturer coupons have no doubling or tripling on them? Does the double not come from the store itself? the brand company isn't losing anything by allowing doubling is it?

    Getting ready for my second SD. Started clipping coupons. My neighbor was so nice to save for me four inserts...

    CTYA, I also don't like HT's 3 day promotion, and starting on Sunday. I don't even go to them anymore as I will not go on Sunday morning. By Mondays, they have nothing left to stock with, and no time for more stock to arrive, not to mention my big pet peeve of not allowing Q's with rainchecks.

    I would love to see another 7 day super doubles event at HT. I don't get a chance to attend the 3 day event.

    ctya - I am right there with you. I didn't even make it to the last Super Doubles event. It would be very nice if they did not start these events on a Sunday morning. Maybe once Lidl and Wegmans have a larger presence here in the Triangle, they will go back to the 7 day events since the competition will be even more than it already is.

    Am I think only one who doesn't like the three day SDs? The stores need to do better about stocking.

  • TJ84 Aug 13, 9:02 p.m.

    Wow, I was just recuperating from the last one! I got a lot of good deals but also spent way too much.

  • sdoss1 Aug 13, 4:38 p.m.

    Thanks for the heads up, Faye. I didn't expect another SD so soon. Will have to work on my coupons.

    laalaa99stl - I thought you would like that! lol Time to reschedule your vacation! I agree with your thoughts on the timing. I assume it has something to do with the holiday in Sept.

  • laalaa99stl Aug 13, 3:32 p.m.

    Whaaaaaaat??!! This totally breaks the pattern! I guess I still need you for the headsup on SDs after all :P

    There goes my vacation lol.

    I wonder if there will even be an SD event in September. Instead of pushing it forward to avoid it running through Labor Day it seems they pulled it back.
