Thursday thoughts: New Harris Teeter e-coupons are here!

Posted November 12, 2010 1:00 a.m. EST

Harris Teeter is rolling out a new e-coupons benefit for e-vic members. Many of us received e-mails about the benefit today. My thanks to the readers who e-mailed me to make sure I knew about the promotion. I received the e-mail - just haven't had a chance to blog about it until now.

Here is the text from the e-mail I received:

"Because you're a Very Important Customer and an e-VIC Member, we wanted to give you a sneak peek into this great new way to save. Below are the details on how you can link valuable manufacturer coupons directly to your VIC card. This week includes offers from great brands like Green Giant, Breyers, Pillsbury, Yoplait, Betty Crocker, Borden and many more. You can look for great new offers anytime it's convenient for you to browse the list of e-VIC coupons (we're adding more all the time!).

Please take a minute to enroll in this program, download some offers and SAVE. If you have any issues, please contact Customer Relations at 1-800-432-6111.

Thanks for your support!"

With this benefit, you add the coupons to your Vic card electronically and when you buy the item and scan your Vic card, the discount comes off automatically. As is the case with shortcuts.com and cellfire.com digital coupons that you can use at Kroger, these are also considered manufacturer's coupons. This means you cannot combine them with other hard copy manufacturer's coupons. The e-coupons will not double, so make sure you don't have a better hard copy coupon before you add the digital e-Vic coupon to your Vic card.

The e-mail goes on to give instructions on how to register for the program including what looks like a link specific to me. I will chat with them tomorrow and see if they have a link everyone can use. The new benefit is not posted on their website so you can't access it from there, at this time. As we learn more, I'll post the details. Until then, if you received the e-mail - go ahead and enroll and start saving with these digital coupons.

Please post your thoughts about the new benefit and let us know what you think once you start using the e-coupons.
